Back Pain FAQ

Q: Hello! My name is Dakota just had a few questions on serrapeptase.

I have had a lower back injury that i have been battling for about a year and half..it still hurts quite a bit. Do you think there was some scar tissue that has built up around that area and is what is still causing my further discomfort and inflammation?

I heard about serrapeptase and thought i should give it a try. I have been taking it pretty religiously for about a week now. But i was wondering how long do you think till i can see some pretty good results from it? i know you dont know me that well or how long my condition has been this way. but in your experience when do people who have been suffering from chronic pain usually start seeing positive results?

Thank you! -Dakota R., United States

A: Dakota,

It is too soon to expect results yet.

What strength serrapeptase are you taking and how many?


Q: The brand is called serragold. By enzymedica. It’s listed at One capsule is equal to 100,000 SU. After reading your website I should be looking for serrapeptase thats measured in IU? Does this make a huge difference? I am currently taking around fifteen total a day. All on empty stomach. -Dakota R., United States

A: Dakota, Drop to 2 x 3 times per day for a month or so. Come back to me then if it has not cleared.


Q: Serrapeptase really works for back pain but I have Ibs and it seems to constapate me. I want to continue using it because my back is very bad but cannot go. I have tried stuff to go but I only go a little. HELP! -Vicky H., United States

A: Drink 32oz of warm water on waking with your serrapeptase. Wait 30mins before breakfast.

Drink 16oz x 2 of warm water times over the morning with a pinch if bicarbonate of soda in each glass

Drink 16oz x 1 of warm water times an hour after dinner with a pinch if bicarbonate of soda in each glass.


Q: Hi Robert,

I have had low back pain/sciatica for almost 10 months now and am desperately seeking some relief. The pain sometimes goes right down to my foot and occasionally I have numbness and tinkling in my feet right as well. My toe occasionally even appears to look a bit swollen. A friend of mine in Ireland sent me a bottle of Serranol to try and I’ve been taking it now for 3 days. Would you recommend the Serranol or the SerraEnzyme and what dosages wold you suggest? -Veronica K.

A: Take 2 caps x 3 times per day, 30 mins before eating a meal and yes I do recommend Serranol. This is a difficult condition and have you had any acupucture for it? If not go tomorrow.


Q: Can I add serapeptase instead of the curcumin. Also I hurt my back doing some shoveling and it is my upper back in between my shoulders do you thing serrapeptase will help me with this. -Martin H.

A: Yes, serrapeptase is good on its own (and good for pulled muscles).


Q: Dear Robert,

I wonder if it would be possible to give me some advice on the corrrect dosage for taking Serrapeptase.

I have purchased 60 x 40,000IU and have some lower back pain. I have a couple of inflamed facet joints which give me pain and stiffness in my lower back and into my hip. At the moment, it is not chronic pain but it is there all the time. I have in the past, had the pain a lot worse than it is currently, but am trying to prevent it from returning at the chronic level I have had before.

What dosage or strength would you recommend I take for this? I would be grateful for your advice.

Many thanks! -Lorraine D.

A: Lorraine,

It is an expensive way to purchase it as I normally recommend SerraEnzyme 90 caps x 80,000iu which works out over 50% cheaper.
You can use these 40K caps up and try 2 x 3 times per day, 30mins before eating with water.
The ultimate if it is not cleared is HealthPoint See www.DoveHealth.com

    For 2 years I have taken supplements by AST enzymes 3 exclyzyme and 2 serraptase . It has helped greatly with healing my sinuses, cervical and back pain and healing my intestines. Recently I experienced increased lower back . I am going to start a supplement with ginger cur cumin and other natural anti inflammatory substances? Will they interfere with enzyme effects?

      Hi Colleen, no they will not interfere in any way with the effects of the Serraenzyme.

    I have the Doctor’s Best Serrapeptase 120000 SPUs. Is one a day enough when my back is out?
    Thank you.

      Hi Amanda,
      We can only specifically advise on the SerraEnzyme from GHN as we can be sure of the potency and dosages for this product. Broadly speaking, however, you may need to consider increasing your dosage of serrapeptase in light of your symptoms, as this may not be enough.
      My advice would be to follow the full health plan for back pain and to contact the Good Health Coaching Centres for complimentary advice and support to help you follow the plan.

    I have 3 fused vertebrae in my lower back which were fused on purpose by surrounding them in a metal cage for 2years(then removed) following a car accident which fractured my lower vertebrae .. would i be risking serapeptase un-fusing my back?

    • Lindsay Powers

      Hi Bruce, serrapeptase does not work on bone, or affect the fused bone where bone grafting has taken place. Serrapeptase dissolves non-living tissues such as fibrin, plaque, blood clots, cysts and inflammation in all forms – without harming living tissue.

    Having some very bad pain in my back because of a sciaticta , spurs and osteoarthritis and have had a total hip replacement. I have your 250.000iu serrapeptase is it ok to take 2 or 3 per day for long time .

    • Lindsay Powers

      May 9, 2018 at 1:34 pm

      Hello Ellen, serrapeptase is safe for long term use at any level that is required. Add in the Active Life, D3/K2 Spray and Magnesium Oil to assist in absorbing calcium into the bones.

    How long do you have to take serra enzyme before you see results?. I am taking 2 x 3 80,000IU a day for nearly a month as I have had a knee op and can’t take anti – inflammatories? I have also had a back spasm for which Tramadol has been prescribed but not needed but my back is still quite stiff?

    • Lindsay Powers

      June 7, 2018 at 2:36 pm

      Hello Dawn, there is no set time frame and it can vary from person to person. If results are slow then consider going up to the Maximum SerraEnzyme 250,000iu for a while, and then dropping back down as relief is felt. Serranol is also a good choice to move on to as a potent anti-inflammatory serrapeptase/curcumin formula.
