Can Cirrhosis be Reversed? New information
« on: April 11, 2017, 04:03:20 am »
Serrapeptase enzyme and cirrhosis.

Apparently Serrapeptase has not hit main stream medicine just yet... However, there are several Doctors (1 Mayo) who are advocates and prescribing the enzyme with a positive affect for some patients with heart and Liver disease.
MANY claims of scar tissue reversal.

I'm always skeptical and in my nature to think there may be some snake oil foolery here, but I originally thought that about Harvoni too.. would love to hear any testimonials from the forums

I would post links but there are too many... so look up Serrapeptase and let us know.

Best always,

Greg

Hi - From one skeptic to another, I couldn't find any good evidence to get excited. Using Google Scholar, I searched for evidence since 2013 and came up with nothing. If you find anything good, please send it. I love when skepticism leads me to hope.
