I'm a 34 year old male with ITP, diagnosed in 2005 after a regular blood analysis. Conventional therapy didn't do anything, except for making me really sick, whereas I was just fine before all the poison. They put me on 90mg of cortisone 3 times a day and I nearly killed myself because of the horrible effects.
I then made the mistake od just quitting it, without tapering off. That's been years now, and my platelet count stabilized using chinese medicine, but still isn't where it should be.
ever since the prednisone, I've got a red tomato face, hot flahes, constant anxiety, extreme daytime sweating (winter, summer: all the same), bald patches on my head, IBS and severe exhaustion. It took me years to realize that these complaints are actually the same as cortisone side-effects.
I would like to get rid of all that and then read cortisone is actually used in homeopathy for exactly that.
What can you good people suggest that I do/take?

To add a bit to this - my son was dx with ITP 5yrs ago and only took prednisone for 4 days. In 4 days it did tremendous damage and his homeopath did a "clearing" similar to CEASE therapy to get the prednisone out of his body's cells. Until we did that we could NOT get his platelets up at all. As soon as we "cleared" the drugs, and started on another remedy he needed his platelets jumped up quickly. It sounds like that's what you need to have happen. If you find the homeopath that Alan recommended prohibitively expensive, I can highly recommend ours. She is fabulous and has brought our son's platelets up naturally with homeopathy. While he's still under "normal" at 74,000 (at last check) he is a far cry from the zero he use to be. I cannot recommend enough to you homeopathy for your ITP! It works beautifully.
All the best.
