Hi My 1st post. I am very excited about enzymes in general and serrapeptase in particular. I found out that I had a uterine fibroid early this year while treating myself with shepherds purse and other herbs/spices (didn't know then that I had a fibroid) My health food store guy gave me serrapeptase. I took the serrapeptase for a few months every morning and sometimes at night on an empty stomach. I eventually developed a tight kind of sore pain in my neck on the left side. So I stopped taking it and then in a few weeks with the pain gone I started taking it again in about a week the neck pain was back.
So I don't know what to think of it. I believe that the serrapeptase helped with the fibroid/bleeding but I have not had a new ultra sound to confirm that. I wanted to wait a few months and give the enzyme therapy time to work. The pain in my neck is not bad but is it a progressive danger or a side effect that will work itself out? I also take Ultra-Zyme for 2 years and I eat at least 60% raw food with no processed food or chemicals. I would eat more raw food but I love lentil soup.
BTW I've lost 40 lbs since January trading wheat,oats,rice and potatoes for at least one raw food meal a day. I just wanted the enzymes.
Any info that you have on serrapeptase or other helpful enzymes would be appreciated.
