Anyone ever use serrazimes?

Hi there,

 

Has anyone ever used enzymes and in particular Serrazimes to help clean up excess fibrin and inflammation and possibly endotoxin load?

 

Thanks!! 

spiralgal,  I'm giving my husband Wobenzym several times a day.  I copied Daisy on using enzymes to break-up immune complexes and fibrin...she's the one who could really unwind on the subject.  Can't speak to the possibility of an effect on the endotoxin load.

spiral - as Joyce says - I cant say enough good about digestive enzymes.  Could and would write a book about them. 

Useful on so many fronts.  Elizabeth Lipsky has a book called Digestive Wellness that is highly useful for learning about the topic.

There is some light data that even suggest Digestive Enzymes are able to better break the "shell" on many virus and allow the immune system to pick them up.

I take about 6 Digestive Enzymes per day - brands I like - Wobenzyme, Zymedophilus, Progest, Megazyme by Enzymatic Therapies, etc... I like to mix them up.

 My husband gets about 12 to 14 Megazyme/Wobenzyme per day.

My MD had me taking WobenzymE even prior to CAP.  I take 2 4X a day.  It hasn't hurt me I am sure.  I hate to think how bad off I would be having not taken them for almost 2 yrs now!

I started taking serrazyme several years before I started CAP. I have taken a variety of enzymes. Combined Antibiotic Protocol minocycline, azithromycin, metronidazole for muscle pain, insomnia, interstitial cystitis, sinus, disphonia, dry eyes, stiff neck, veins, thyroid, TMJ.

minocycline, azithromycine, metronidazole 2007-2009, chelation for lead poisoning, muscle pain, insomnia, interstitial cystitis (almost well), sinus, dry eyes, stiff neck, veins, hypothyroid, TMJ, hip joints (no longer hurt)

I just read some info on these enzymes  and am ordering some for my bladder problems (major bladder pain, irritation -no infection, cystoscopy fine... so blame it on the CPN)  .....( I bleeped the brand name out ;0)

SerraXXXXX  digests non-living tissue, blood clots, arterial plaque and inflammation in all forms. Besides reducing inflammation, one of serrapeptase's most profound benefits is reduction of pain - physicians in Europe and Asia are using it as an alternative to saliclates (aspirin), ibuprofen and other NSAIDS."

It is a proteolytic enzyme originally isolated from the silkworm. It is now synthesized in Japan where it has been extensively studied for acute inflammation specifically due to surgery, wound healing, respiratory health, and bladder health.
 

But I also read this on another link

TECHNICAL NOTES:

Serrapeptidase is a selective alkaline metalloprotease enzyme, meaning that it works to activate specific biological systems of mammals and directly degrades or inhibits IgG and IgA immune factors as well as the regulatory proteins á-2-macroglobulin, á-2-antiplasmin, and antithrombin III (Molla et al, 1989)(Maeda and Molla, 1989).  

Can anyone help me understand the last paragraph?  Does degrading the IgG and IgA help fight CPN?
