Suggest remedies for Pemphigus Vulgaris

I have just been diagnosed with Pemphigus Vulgaris. I am 53 year old female and have a few small sores on my torso and sore gums but otherwise feel fine/healthy. I am frightened to take Prednisone as side effects sound awful. Does anyone know of any more natural remedies I could try first. Surely it makes sense to re-correct/balance my immune system rather than suppress it?
