What should be done to recover from plasmapheresis while on prednison, mestanon, and tube feeding .

I just got out of the hospital 6 days ago after 32 days. Had 5 plasma pherrisis treatments. I am on prednison, mestanon, and tube feeding until I can swallow again. I have always been in excellent health, no bad habits or life style. Is there a natural way to get my health back?
