Wobenzyme - it really worked for chronic pain / inflammation

Despite all the favorable reviews, I never thought this product is actually working. And then, like 6 months ago, I got my ankle sprained really bad. At the beginning, cold packs and Advil in generous doses helped; after like 3 months, there was some residual inflammation and local stiffness with moderate pain, and they did not go away no matter what I tried (Advil again, physical activity of all sorts, hydrotherapy, cortisone-based topical creams). So after another 3 months, desperately, hopelessly looking to get my ankle back in shape, I finally tried Wobenzym: and then all the inflammation and stiffness completely dissapeared, within 7 days. So guess what, from now on I'll make sure I always have a bottle of Wobenzyme at home.
The product is Good but.....

The product is good. A week after using it, I felt more energetic. However,I got body rashes which I strongly believe due to its "Bromelain" content.A week after I stopped using it,all my body rashes disappeared. I wish Wobenzym had no Bromelain in it.Otherwise,the product is really good. Bromelain is scientifically-proven hyperallergenic. Now, Im taking Enzymatic Therapy's CompleteGest enzymes without bromelain ( for more than a week now and i dont have rashes)
Excellent alternative to NSAID for inflamation

I have been taking 3 in the AM and 3 in the PM for shoulder tendonitis and knee pain. It works. Just make sure you take it on an empty stomach. Otherwise it will not work. These have been used in Germany for decades with success. No side effects like NSAID's. I have used a generic form of Wobenzym enzymes from another supplier and they did not work as well as this brand. A bit expensive but it is worth it to save your liver and gut from the abuse of NSAID's. Your MD will never tell you about this. If you ask, he/she will likely say they never heard of it and sadly they are probaly telling the truth.

I was diagnosed with Autoimmune Hypothyroidism & a Dr.recommended it to regulate the immune system, I take 4 x 3/day (on empty stomach), It helps with all kind of pains but also because its anti-inflammatory properties it brings down the auto-antibodies (TPO) that attack my thyroid. They went down from 256 to 43 in 4 months. (normal range 34 or less). I highly recommend it!!
Might have helped me with blocked fallopian tubes.

I was diagnosed with semi blocked fallopian tubes (through hysterosalpingogram). I panicked because I am actively trying to conceive. After researching a lot I found out that these enzymes eat away all scar tissue and can potentially unblock the tubes. The price here was significantly lower that anywhere else on the net. I also started taking Christopher's Original Formulas, Female Reproductive Formula. The herbs in this formula have been traditionally used to support fallopian tube health. Finally I did heated castor oil packs on my lower abdomen the first half of the cycle. After about 2 months time I decided that I will undergo laparoscopy to reopen them surgically. My surgeon gynaecologist found my tubes completely open! I was amazed! There is a chance that the first diagnosis was misleading, but I still think that maybe this regime helped me. Now I am waiting to get pregnant...hopefully soon! Click on my username for more reviews! If you thought that this review was helpful please feel free to press the 'yes' button.
