48. re: Sinus - well I got a lingering flu and so the results are not so powerful now
but then I am sticking to a small dose (1 or 2 per day @ 20,000 units not mgs) because with the increase stuffiness there is only so much drainage I can tolerate at one time. One good thing to note is that there is much less nausea from the drainage when I am taking my enzymes especially the serrazimes. Basically it is still unpleasant but several notches lower on the :puke: scale.

For people with chronic sinus and/or allergies a neti pot is wonderful if you can tolerate it. I could not tolerate the extra drainage before but maybe I can now with the added digesting power of enzymes. Also I was usually so plugged up by the time I would dig it out and try it again it was like trying to wash away set cement :p

The most powerful effects I have feel from regular serrazimes use is in my back which I never thought was going to improve. This past week I have been out bent over while chopping and shoveling ice and snow for a couple hours at a time and have only had one bad spasm that did not involve my entire lower back and did not immobilize me. I still hurt, ache all over, stiff, and have kept up the heat treatments (hot showers as soon after the activitity as possible & regular heating pad use) and yet I am not curled up in bed unable to move. And my knees are not howling in spite of being out in the cold for hours bending and kneeling. Stiff and achy and want to not get out of bed for a week - yes, want to cry from the pain - no.
