Serrapeptase enzyme therapy: a promising line of treatment for Dupuytren's Contractures

"Greetings from Cambridge, England. It may be useful if I responsibly recount my serendipitous experience. Around two years back a colleague suggested I try a few low-power daily capsules to see whether sharp big-toe joint pain might be alleviated. Gout it resembled but gout it was NOT, as my general practitioner doctor discovered to his puzzlement when the standard uric acid lab test came back negative--nonetheless, stomach-irritating anti-inflams were offered with commiserations. I opted to try serrapeptase pills instead and found that the inflammation subsided quickly and with no stomach discomfort. 

An unexpected side-effect, however, was that dead-tissue collagen growths in my hands (bi-lateral Dupuytren's contractures) began to itch and tingle, and over the next couple of weeks finger dexterity loosened up noticeably. Background info: Two senior UK hand-surgeons, one of them US qualified, had advised against excision and z-plasty in my case as growths were judged aggressive and advanced, likely to recur within five years of surgery. I was encouraged to await availability of Santyl collagenase injection therapy (undergoing phase 3 trials and FDA control at Stoneybrook, Detroit, and elsewhere). 'Delay surgery as long as possible! Try and wait', said the surgeons. (And Phase 3 is not yet done.) Bent ring fingers have straightened up considerably as a result of my taking enteric coated serrapeptase, 30,000 iu each day over the last two years. The growths are visibly and palpably retreating, and I can now press my palms flat on a table top. Maybe the cords will wither away or snap and dissolve as I nowadays flex fingers to degrees which were impossible before. 

Presumably my lymph system is perforce processing a lot of dissolved dead tissue, unhealthy material, and this may well be a debilitating strain on the body's daily attempts to achieve homeostasis. I imagine that rises in temperature and occasional flu-like symptoms might be triggered when my body needs to rid itself of unwanted solutions. 

General practitioners seem puzzled and skeptical. They say nothing. A very senior hospital specialist treating chronic pain knows the enzyme and its use in state regulated medicine in Germany and Japan (for fibroids, blocked arteries, etc.), and has no reservations whatever about my using serrapeptase. I realise that this does not add up to longterm controlled trials and verifiable findings. Obviously I am pleased to get my hands back into better shape and fitness for purpose, but perhaps I am at risk as we do not know if longterm damage elsewhere in the body can result from bioactive agents taken extensively."

___________________________
Gary:
Serrapeptase enzyme therapy is an exciting new line of therapy for a wide range of conditions that are associated with scar tissue buildup of which Dupuytren's contractures are one.  Dupuytren's is a rare condition; but one that I see often, possibly because I look for it.  It may be rare because the majority of cases are never identified or reported.  It is closely associated with chronic debilitating stress, as well as some dietary factors.  Many of my clients consult me for stress related matters.

Dupuytren's (du-pwe-TRANZ) contracture is a hand deformity that usually develops slowly, over years. Dupuytren's contracture affects a layer of tissue that lies under the skin of your palm. Knots of tissue form under the skin — eventually forming a thick cord that can pull one or more of your fingers into a bent position.
Once this occurs, the fingers affected by Dupuytren's contracture can't be straightened completely, which can complicate everyday activities such as placing your hands in your pockets, putting on gloves or shaking hands.
Serapeptase may help by gently dissolving scar tissue which is an exciting action.  From my limited experience of this relatively new therapy, it actually seems to work!

Although serrapeptase appears to be very safe, it is not completely without side effects, so one must exercise care, particularly if taking medications.  If you think serrapeptase may be beneficial for you, please consult a suitably trained and experienced health practitioner, such as myself, for professional advice and guidance.
