Hi has anyone used bromelain or serrapeptase after radiation to help with protein accumulation re tumor die off? Just interested. I fid bromelain helps my symptoms but haven't tried serrapeptase am looking into it though.
What symptoms did you have?
And did the doctor prescribe the meds?
Hi these are not meds they are natural. Right now I am taking Bio 30 and melatonin.
Hi Michelle - I too am curious, what symptoms does the bromelain help with? I am looking for any help with the daily struggle of balance and tinnitus. I walk around 5-6 miles daily to keep working on balance. By the end of the day as I get tired, I find I start to bounce off walls. ;) Just looking for any advantage I can get.
I read Tumbleweed post re bromelain - and the way bromelain helps with fibrin absorption (proteins given off by tumor as it dies) plus its a blood thinner and anti inflammatory and I think that may help too. I am trying the Bio 30 as there were trials way back in 2012 on NF2 pathways (I dont have but we have similar pathways). Anyways will see it seems to help- no nerve pain at moment since I started on that. For tinnitus I have most definitely found that melatonin (img compounded troche at bedtime and Circadin 2mg sustained- bot for ma at bedtime) have mad my tinnitus go away- or so very faint I am unaware of. Some clinical articles on this. Balance- I agree with Paul Wellens - walking is best - and outdoors. I am not taking bromelain at the moment but it did help me and funny enough with eye floaters also. I also tried Honopure...not sure that helped in any way. If you get melatonin make sure its prescribed not off internet. PM me anytime!
