Serrapeptase- Silkworm based enzyme compared to EDTA

Thanks to [url][/url] for this data.

“[I]…A wealth of information exists regarding its anti-inflammatory properties. Serrapeptase has been used as an anti-inflammatory agent in the treatment of:

Chronic sinusitis
To improve the elimination of bronchopulmonary secretions
Traumatic injury (e.g. sprains and torn ligaments)
Post-operative inflammation
To facilitate the therapeutic effect of antibiotics in the treatment of infections
Cystitis and epididymitis..[/I]”

From the perspective that ‘they’ compare this enzyme to EDTA, Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, used, among other things for patients with very high blood levels of lead poisoning and since then, supposedly, to reduce arterial inflammation or CAD, coronary artery disease.

So, then YES, I underwent 20-30, or more, EDTA intravenous treatments back in the 1990’s. Couldn’t say they helped my CIDP at all. No proof it did anything except I haven’t had a heart attack.
