Conquer inflammation with Serrapeptase
Inflammation is Part of Your Bodys Natural Healing Process Inflammation is the number one reason an individual consults any health care practitioner. Arthritis, gastritis, colitis, dermatitis, nephritis, neuritis and cystitis are just some of the common inflammatory conditions that bring people to their doctors every day. If the doctors diagnosis ends in the four letters, itis, by definition, inflammation is involved.

Under ordinary circumstances, inflammation is quite beneficial for your health. If you receive an injury, oxidative stress triggers your immune system to release inflammatory cytokines destroys invading pathogens as well as dead skin cells and protects the site of the injury so you can heal.

Once the injury has been neutralized, your immune system stops releasing pro-inflammatory cytokines and the pain and discomfort goes away.

When Good Inflammation Goes Bad Chronic Pain, Allergies, and More:

Chronic inflammation occurs when your bodys natural inflammatory process turns on and never turns off. Chronic inflammation can be triggered by physical or emotional trauma, intestinal parasite infection, prolonged illness, environmental toxins, excessive use of antibiotics, and a junk food diet.

Autoimmune Disease Your immune system is designed to protect you against foreign invaders and pathogenic bacteria. Autoimmune disease develops when your immune system begins to mistake its own healthy tissue for something that shouldnt be there. This usually occurs because of an excessive exposure to artificial substances like air pollution, synthetic drugs, and junk food.

Rheumatoid arthritis, ITP, vasculitis, ulcerative colitis, thyroid disease, scleroderma, Lyme disease, multiple sclerosis, celiac disease, and Dresslers system are only a few of the incredible amount of autoimmune diseases millions of people suffer with everyday.

Chronic, sometimes debilitating inflammation not only makes living with an autoimmune disease unbearable, it can also lead to widespread tissue, joint, and cellular damage as well as the development of cancer in the future.

Allergic Conditions Chronic allergic conditions such as allergic rhinitis, food allergies, eczema, and psoriasis, are all caused by chronic inflammation. Your immune system is responding as though your everyday environment is toxic (because it is).

Heart Disease Recent studies have suggested that inflammation, not high cholesterol, is the leading cause of heart disease. There are laboratory tests for inflammation that will indicate ones risk for heart disease. These include ESR, hs (high sensitivity) - CRP (C-Reactive Protein) and fibrinogen. All three tests indicate the presence of inflammation in the body and, if elevated, a higher risk for heart disease.

Trauma-Related Injuries Chronic inflammation can also occur as a result of a traumatic injury. Studies have shown that those injured in car accidents are especially vulnerable to the development of chronic inflammatory conditions like fibromyalgia.

Why Modern Medicine Fails at Treating Chronic Inflammation:

One of the primary reasons so many people are leaving conventional medicine and turning to natural methods is because modern medicine is not adept at treating chronic pain and autoimmune conditions. In the majority of these cases, current medical treatments only serve to suppress symptoms without making any dent in the disease process itself.

For example, if you have osteoarthritis, doctors will prescribe NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Osteoarthritis is a life long illness and most people who suffer from it are on NSAIDS for life.

The trouble with this type of treatment is it only addresses the symptoms, doing nothing to address the underlying cause of inflammation. Also, NSAID pain relievers and steroids induce blood loss from the stomach or other areas of the gastrointestinal tract if taken for extended periods of time.

Other drugs prescribed for chronic illnesses like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus are even worse. These drugs suppress your immune system dramatically. Some are chemotherapeutic agents and anti-malarial drugs. These drugs can damage the liver, the bone marrow and other organs. The horrendous side effects of these drugs are sometimes worse than the disease itself.

Immune system suppression is one of the worst ways to treat any type of chronic pain or autoimmune condition. These drugs only treat the symptoms for a short period of time (maybe 5 or 10 years) and by then, the immune system is so depleted, the patient is absolutely dependent on the drugs to continue to fight an inflammatory response that is now completely out of control.

When the immune system is prevented from what its naturally designed to do, rebound inflammation occurs as soon as these drugs are no longer available. Once a synthetic drug is stopped, even for a short period, its as though someone busted the lock on the door and let an enraged and hungry mob of inflammatory compounds loose in your exhausted, vulnerable body.

The fact that doctors and surgeons continue to treat inflammation with drugs and surgery without even attempting a natural approach first is deplorable. Worse is the fact that many of them still tell their patients that diet has nothing to do with inflammation when there is overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary.

Serrapeptase Stronger Than Turmeric and Boswellia for Inflammation:

If youve done any of your own research into natural methods of treating chronic inflammation, youve no doubt heard how a hypoallergenic diet and nutritional supplements like fish oil, vitamin D, and herbs like boswellia and turmeric can help fight your inflammation naturally. While these treatments work well in certain individuals, nothing even approaches the natural antiinflammatory potency of an enzyme called serrapeptase.

Serrapeptase (a.k.a. Serratio Peptidase) is a proteolytic enzyme. It is fibrinolytic, which means it digests excessive amounts of the protein known as fibrin that causes the blood to clot or become sticky. In the concentrated form of a tablet or capsule, serrapeptase acts as an anti-inflammatory and a pain blocker similar to acetylsalicylic acid, ibuprofen and other NSAIDS (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). It inhibits the release of bradykinin, a substance that induces pain.

Serrapeptase picks up where other herbs and supplements leave off by not only suppressing the pro-inflammatory compounds but digesting pro-inflammatory tissue!

Doctors in Europe and Asia have been prescribing this potent enzyme in ever-increasing frequency for just about every form of inflammation for the past 30 years.

Because of its protein-chopping action, serrapeptase helps thin the fluids formed from injury, thus facilitating drainage. This speeds tissue repair and relieves the constant pressure that causes pain.

Serrapeptase Treats Wide Variety of Chronic Pain Conditions:

Popularized by the late and legendary German internist, Dr. Hans Nieper, this powerful enzyme has been used to treat virtually all degenerative diseases. These diseases include:

Cardiovascular Disease Plaque in the arteries consists of fat, cholesterol, cellular waste products, calcium and fibrin. This non-living gunk can end up blocking coronary arteries leading to heart attacks. Serrapeptase gradually cleans out your arteries by dissolving plaque, which eliminates the inflammation at the root of plaque formation.

Chronic Bronchitis This horribly annoying condition involves chronic coughing, heavy sputum (or mucous) production, chest pain and difficulty breathing. Serrapeptase loosens sputum and reduces the frequency of cough and expectoration. Studies indicate that, when antibiotics are used in conjunction with serrapeptase, more antibiotics are delivered to the site of the bronchial infection. This enables the antibiotic to be more effective.

Ear, Nose and Throat Discomforts If you suffer from chronic ear, nose, and throat complains, serrapeptase can help you where other allergy and sinus medications have failed. Serrapeptase eases the inflammation associated with chronic allergic response without the side effects of over-the-counter and prescription sinus treatments.

Fibrocystic Breast Disease Often a forerunner of breast cancer, this condition involves painful swollen breasts, especially premenstrually. Cysts and areas of hardness in the breasts can be quite uncomfortable for most women. Serrapeptase reverses this condition naturally while lowering your breast cancer risk.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome Irritable bowel syndrome is a blanket diagnosis liberally used by conventional medical doctors who are unable to figure out the root cause of the chronic abdominal pain and diarrhea their patients live with. Serrapeptase addresses the underlying causes of inflammation, bringing symptoms under control while digesting the dead, inflamed tissue in your colon that could lead to cancer.

Pain Control Serrapeptase can be considered to be a natural pain control substance because it blocks the release of pain inducing compounds from the inflamed tissues. It is an excellent alternative to NSAIDS for conditions as wide ranging as tennis elbow to migraine headaches.

Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome These conditions are often treated with surgery but serrapeptase in conjunction with bromelain (another proteolytic enzyme) and vitamin B6 could be used as suitable alternatives.

Scarring Scars of all types can be reduced significantly with the use of serrapeptase for 3 or more months. This is because this enzyme dissolves fibrin, a component of scar tissue.

Other Diseases Helped by Serrapeptase:

If its a disease or condition that involves inflammation or excessive mucous production, serrapeptase helps either reduce the severity or eliminate it entirely. Arthritis, asthma, bronchiecstsis, cysts of any kind, DVT (deep vein thrombosis), emphysema, vascular headaches, varicose veins, snoring, prostatitis and an enlarged prostate will all respond well to serrapeptase.

Serrapeptase Heals Chronic Pain Without Stomach Side Effects Is Serrapeptase safe?

On a scale of one to one thousand with one being harmless and 1000 being highly toxic causing death, we have acetylsalicylic acid, ibuprofen and corticosteroids at close to 1000 while serrapeptase is closer to one.

As with most nutritional supplements that are GRAS (generally regarded as safe), any adverse reactions that occur are usually in the mind of the individual using the supplement. Of special interest is the fact that serrapeptase does not interact with any prescription drug or nutritional supplement.

How to Take Serrapeptase Serrapeptase is best taken on an empty stomach (1 hour before or 2 hours after meals). If combined or taken with food, it helps digest the food but does nothing to reverse inflammation. In purchasing serrapeptase, make sure it is enteric coated so that it will not be broken down and inactivated by stomach acids. In that way, the enzyme can reach the small intestines from where it can be absorbed into the bloodstream and reduce inflammation anywhere in the body.

Serrapeptase is a powerful anti-inflammatory that can help you get the kind of pain relief you need without damaging side effects.
