Consequence of systemic enzymes like Neprinol for Peyronie’s treatment
When using any of the systemic enzyme products (Neprinol, Nattokinase 1500 or Fibrozym) in a Peyronie’s disease Alternative Medicine program, it is not uncommon to go through a detoxification reaction. Avoiding a detoxification reaction, and what to do if you have one, is the reason anyone who orders these particular products receives specific suggestions for their use.
Any of these systemic enzymes will destroy foreign fibrin in the body, regardless of the location of the fibrin material. Over time as Peyronie’s plaque and fibrin is destroyed the greater the problem for the body is to eliminate the fibrin protein break-down products and tissue debris. Like when you clean the attic – you must find a way to get rid of all the accumulated junk.
When starting to use the systemic enzymes in a Peyronie’s disease treatment plan, this can amount to a flood of break-down debris that possibly can overwhelm the ability of the liver and large intestine for removal. The end result is often nausea and diarrhea that are caused by this “housecleaning” that performed by the systemic enzymes.
Besides being no fun, the nausea and diarrhea problems that detoxification causes will also make absorption of nutrients more difficult and inefficient. It is difficult for the body to absorb nutrients through the bowel wall while diarrhea is taking place. For this reason I suggest that you stay at an enzyme dose high enough to just border on digestive distress (light occasional diarrhea and nausea, but definitely controllable), but less than having bad out-of-control problems. This way you are attempting to still push for the benefits of detoxification without losing nutrients because your system is in a state of irritation from toxic overload.
Peyronie's treatment personal and specific for the individual
There is no one who can tell you the exact dosage to go about detoxification without developing a lot of diarrhea; you have to figure out how to do it; no one can do it for you. I suggest you not stay on a constant or level dose of enzymes.
Let’s say you wish to try a 6/day dose of your enzymes (either Neprinol, Serrapeptase or Fibrozym). I suggest you start at 3/day and over a 7 day period slowly work your way up the level you wish. If you notice a slight case of diarrhea starting, drop down to one less pill per day for a few days but do not totally stop taking the enzyme because you then interfere with your body’s tendency to adapt to and tolerate that product. After a few day go back up to the dose that had caused a little diarrhea and you will likely have no problem.
As an option for those who want to take – as an example – 6/day of a systemic enzyme consider this effective variation. Play with that 6/day dose by taking 5/day and 7/day on alternate days; or even 4/day and 8/day on alternate days. This way, on the high days you are pushing yourself for detox but this is followed by a day of relative “rest” with the lower dose of enzymes so that you your gut does not stay irritated for a long time. This method also has the advantage you are not stopping your program; you are staying with it but modifying it for maximum benefit to you.
If you are taking these enzyme products you might consider trying this pattern of taking them for a few weeks. I found I was experiencing toxic overload when I was taking about 12/day of Neprinol in addition to other systemic enzymes. I did this higher/lower pattern and it really seemed to help. Eventually I got to the point I could take up to 18/day of Neprinol with no problem at all. This higher level of systemic enzyme therapy can be a little complicated, but it was definitely worthwhile for me.
