Dr. Arnold Renshaw, from Manchester in England, reported in the Annals of Rheumatic Disease (1947) that he had obtained good results with enzyme treatment of over 700 patients with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis or fibrositis. “Some intractable cases of ankylosing spondylitis and Still’s disease have also responded to this therapy.” He went on to say that of 556 people with various types of arthritis, 283 were found to be much improved, and a further 219 were improved to a less marked extent. Of 292 cases of rheumatoid arthritis, 264 showed improvement of various degrees. The longer the duration of the disease, the longer time before improvement was observed, although most started to show improvement after just two or three months of enzyme therapy.
Despite these favourable findings, digestive enzyme therapy in conventional medicine has been reserved for those diseases that directly result in a pathological deficiency of pancreas-derived digestive enzymes.
What causes it?
There are two main types of arthritis: Osteo-arthritis, which in lay terms is due to wear and tear of the joint, and Rheumatoid arthritis which is a form of arthritis where the joints have become inflamed, possibly as a result of a virus or autoimmune response.
Warning: Rheumatoid vasculitis (inflammation of the blood vessels) is a serious complication of RA and can be life-threatening. It can lead to skin ulcerations (and subsequent infections), bleeding stomach ulcers (which can lead to a massive haemorrhage), and neuropathies (nerve problems causing pain, numbness or tingling). Vasculitis may also affect the brain, nerves, and heart causing strokes, sensory neuropathies (numbness and tingling), heart attacks, or heart failure. Use the program with safety but seek medical help at the same time.
In general Osteo-arthritic pain will respond faster to Serrapeptase treatment than rheumatoid arthritis, which may need more intensive treatment. The best results in any studies for rheumatoid arthritis come from those using enzymes and diet. A new US study showed that a Mediterranean diet showed a substantial improvement and confirms such earlier studies that show processed starchy carbohydrate diets are disease promoting.
Surprisingly, doctors still do not know what actually causes arthritis – whatever the various schools of thought speculate on as to its cause, the one thing we are sure of is that the real problem is that the normal healing function of the body is no longer doing its job of looking after the repair of the damage being caused by the Arthritis.
One of the most important potential benefits of proteolytic enzymes is in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Conventional treatment of this devastating disease involves powerful, dangerous drugs, like steroidal and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, as well as more exotic treatments, such as methotrexate and D-penicillamine. About the best one can say about these drugs is that they may provide a degree of short-term symptomatic relief. At worst, they will kill you.
Numerous studies in animals and people with rheumatoid arthritis indicate that enzyme therapy can manage symptoms of pain and inflammation at least as well as the conventional drugs, but with none of the adverse effects. In fact, side effects with enzymes are virtually nonexistent .
Doctors who are experienced with proteolytic enzymes find prophylactic treatment offers a wide range of benefits including:
* Better mobilisation, reducing the degree of muscle atrophy, arthritis and pain on movement
* Less risk of thromboembolic complications
* Less pain and discomfort due to swelling
* Less risk of cartilage or capsular damage due to immobility
How can Serrapeptase Help?
Serrapeptase helps immensely as it clears out all of the inflammation and dead/scar tissue. By clearing away this problem tissue it enables the body’s own healing system to replace it with healthy tissue.
How many do I take?
Start with 3 tablets of Serrapeptase x 3 times per day on an empty stomach and increase it to 4 x 3 if no relief with 7 days, even more if necessary. Then gradually reduce to 1 x 1.
Can I take too many tablets or can it interfere with any drugs I am taking?
No. It has been used for over 25 years with no side effects reported. Will this program cure the Arthritis? Serrapeptase is clearing the problem tissue and HealthPoint is treating the damage caused by the Arthritis – the condition itself must be treated with other measures such as nutrition etc. However, from a patient’s point of view, the fact that many customers are now completely free from all symptoms of their arthritis does suggest that the relief given by Serrapeptase and HealthPoint is very close to a cure.
As with all chronic serious conditions there are no magic bullets and therefore your chances for complete remission are improved by following as much as you can manage of the 10 Step Arthritis Plan below.
The simple reason for doing more is to give yourself the best chance you will ever have of beating Arthritis.
1. Follow as below (in order of priority, as much as you can afford):
- 1st Line immune support – Always take at least 90 mins after food and 90 mins before food. Clears any infection that may reside in the cells – Take 1 kit daily for 3 days (total of 3). 3 kits should be taken as a minimum, in serious conditions 10 kits are better if finances allow
- Serranol - SerraEnzyme Serrapeptase, Curcuminx4000, Ecklonia Cava (Seanol) and Vit D3. Take 2 caps x 3 times per day, 30 mins before eating a meal, with water, and reduce to 1 x 3 after a good relief.
- Nascent Iodine Colloidal Drops – Helps balance hormones and metabolism as per the instructions Take 4 x 4 drops per day in water, Build over 2 weeks up to 10×4 until well and then slowly reduce back to 4 x 4. Note that Iodine needs a supplement containing selenium to activate it such as Active Life or Daily Immune Protection or 4-6 Brazil nuts which contain selenium.
- GlycoBoost - GlycoNutrients and l-Glutamine – Restore digestive tract. Take 2 teaspoon per day for 30-60 days.
- D.I.P Daily Immune Protection – Take 2 capsules daily. Supports a balanced immune system, protects against infections.
- Prescript Assist 29 Strain Super Probiotic – Contains 29 probiotic microflora that are typical of those found along the healthy human GI tract (see studies at www.Probiotic29.com). Take 2 capsules per day for the first 30 days, followed by 1-2 capsules per week thereafter. A full 30 day cycle should be used to reconstitute beneficial gut flora following any antibiotic regimen.
- Active Life 90 Vitamins/Minerals - Full spectrum multivitamin/mineral which you should already be taking 15ml x 2 times with food.
- MaxiVision – Take 4 capsules daily. Provides healthy antioxidant function and relief from anti-aging.
To further reduce the inflammation and pain, treatment with an electro-acupressure device such as HealthPoint has proved to be as highly effective in treating degeneration problems as traditional acupuncture.
Osteo-Arthritis sufferers may be able to reduce the quantity within days and Rheumatoid Arthritis sufferers may increase quantity until relief takes place.

“I continue to feel so much better, and have more energy and strength to cope with what little pain that I still have after suffering with Rheumatoid Arthritis (I have minimal swelling of my joints now. Everyone comments on this with surprise). Thanks.”
- Clare P.
“My ESR (Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate) went up to 40 and CRP (C-Reactive Protein) was 39, showing up inflammation because of Rheumatoid Arthritis. You told me that your food plan would work. I have been eating heaps of veggies in stir fries, salads and juices. My last blood test, the CRP was <5 and ESR was 3. The rheumatologist wanted to put me on Sulfasalazyne. I’ve stopped seeing him and did not take the drug. But I’ve started seeing someone in Hamilton New Zealand who is a bio-medical doctor and interested in nutrition. Those tests came down to perfectly normal. The doctor was amazed.”
Michele, New Zealand
“I’ve been taking the wonderful Serrapeptase for about 4 months. I take it for chronic rheumatoid arthritis – after stopping Gold injections nearly 2 years ago, due to laceration of the mouth and throat! I can’t believe how much of the pain and inflammation was taken away with quite a small dose of Serrapeptase.”
“I have been telling many of my friends about how dramatically this enzyme has reduced inflammation, swelling, as well as reducing the pain from my rheumatoid arthritis.”
- Caroline C, United States
“I have received amazing results from taking SerraEnzyme 80,000IU. I noticed that my Osteo and Rhumatoid Arthritis, which had deformed my hands, appeared to be totally gone after only about three weeks of taking the product (3 capsules 3x a day). I then noticed that the calcification and bone spurs (spondelothesis) that had me permanently bent over broke up and I was able to stand up straight for the first time in over a year. Next I noticed that the size of my bunions was about 75 per cent and they were almost gone.
I think that this is the most miraculous product I have ever encountered. I have passed out literature and talked up the product to my friends, family and clients. I am licensed to do medical, rehab and sports massage. One of my clients wears support hose because of ropey varicose veins. He said that after only a month he is almost free from this condition. He is also impressed with the results he has seen in reducing his Osteo Arthritis symptoms.
Most prescription medications are not this effective, but do have a slew of side effects. This product has no negative effects that I am aware of.
Thank you for providing this wonderful miracle.”
AR, LMY, United States
Thanks for a great product. I’m going to recommend it to others. I even want to get my dog onto the serrapeptase!”
MRS MAUREEN HENDRICK is interviewed by Writer – Jenny Pulling
Maureen Hendrick is yet another person who says she can’t do without Serrapeptase.
“I have a type of rheumatoid arthritis which causes swelling of my ankles. I also suffer from extreme fatigue. I can’t run or jog like I used to but I’m glad I can still manage to hold down a part time job”
Things have vastly improved since Maureen was flicking through a magazine in a doctor’s waiting room and came upon an article on Serrapeptase. She went on to send for Robert Redfern’s book and began to understand where the discomfort was coming from.
“I read that this kind of rheumatoid arthritis causes scar tissue and inflammation. The action of Serrapeptase would reduce this. I decided to give it a go and….”
The rest as they say is history. Not only has Maureen’s problem receded as the swelling on her ankles decreased but she has persuaded her hospital doctor to take Serrapeptase seriously.
“He was so impressed when he saw how I was walking fine and said he would research it on the Internet.
“I think my health problem began when I was in a job were I was stationary a lot of the time, the blood wasn’t circulating to my legs properly.
That was an evil period of my life when I was working for a small concern everybody said was ‘jinxed’ I took no notice even when people told me that unpleasant things happened to members of staff every year. Then I developed this problem with my ankle! Maybe the vibes weren’t good.
“I now work as a support community worker which suits me well as I am moving about. Together with Serrapeptase I’m enabled to work. In fact my doctor told me recently he doesn’t want to see me for seven months.
“I take 2 to 3 capsules a day and sometimes I’ve left it off for a week or so only to realise the difference it’s been making. It seems to work very quickly with me probably I try to keep fit, follow a good diet and do the stretching exercises the doctor gave me. It all adds up. I am so pleased with Serrapeptase I have passed on the information to other people Sometimes it doesn’t help them but maybe they don’t take it for long enough. It needs time for things to get into the system.”
