Before taking any regimen of enzyme treatment, make sure and consult with your doctor. It is especially important if you are taking blood thinners or cholesterol reducing meds, to make sure that the enzymes in this plan will not contradict, enhance, or interfere with other prescribed medications you are taking.
I'll start off with what has been described as the "Miracle Enzyme," by Hans Neiper. He was a legendary medical doctor that was known for his use of proteolytic enzymes. Serrapeptase has been used widely in clinical practice in Japan and Europe, for over 30 years. Serrapeptase is an enzyme that was isolated from non-pathogenic bacteria found in the digestive tract of the Japanese silkworm. This powerful enzyme is what allows the moth to dissolve it's cocoon. This miracle enzyme digests dead tissue, such as blood clots, cysts, arterial plaque and internal scar tissue.
Nattokinase helps the body maintain healthy circulation. It has been a traditional Japanese folk remedy that has been valued as a food for over 1000 years. Natto is a fermented soy food that contains important enzymes. Nattokinase is unmatched by any other food derived enzyme for its' circulation enhancing effects.

Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi researched with Natto, searching for a natural agent that would dissolve thrombus (fibrin) that is associated with cardiac and cerebral infarction. He found that Natto was a potent enzyme for this purpose. Dr. Sumi named the newly discovered enzyme "Nattokinase," which means enzyme in Natto.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is an amino acid the body uses to turn fat into energy. This amino acid is sometimes referred to as natural Prozac. The emotional boost it gives is definitely noticeable. It can be taken with or without food and is very safe and well tolerated. Acetyl-L-Carnitine and the drug Tamoxifen were compared in a 3 month double blind study on 38 men with Peyronie's disease in Turin, Italy. Acetyl-L-Carnitine (at a dose of 1gm. daily) reduced penile curvature, while Tamoxifen did not. In a ddition the supplement reduced pain and slowed disease progression. The other benefit of Acetyl-L-Carnitine over Tamoxifen was a lack of side effects.
Omega-3 Fish Oil:
Many Urologists that treat Peyronie's disease will prescribe vitamin E, but large doses have been known to over thin the blood, which can be dangerous for cardiovascular health. Omega-3 Fish oil provides all of the benefits of vitamin E, with the added benefit of supporting cardiovascular health and raise the good cholesterol levels.
The benefits of vitamin E in the treatment of Peyronie's disease are inconclusive, especially considering how long vitamin E has been prescribed for treatment. double blind study results have been disappointing. Vitamin E provides more benefit when used in topical applications. (See treatment phase III for more information)
Serrapeptase and Nattokinase should be taken without food between meals, or one hour before eating. This is important, because the enzymes need to activate in the lower intestine, so they can be absorbed into the blood stream, where they will perform their primary function. If they are taken with food, they absorb the protein in the food and are passed through your body as waste. The same instructions apply to Blockbuster All Clear.
Serrapeptase, Nattokinase and Acetyl-L-Carnitine should be taken together, twice daily or take Blockbuster All Clear and Acetyl-L-Carnitine twice daily. I took them upon waking up each morning and before going to bed in the evening, so that my stomach would be as empty as possible. Then in the evening take an additional Serrapeptase, Nattokinase or Blockbuster All Clear, do not take Acetyl-L-Carnitine in the evening as it will make it difficult to fall asleep.
Omega-3 Fish Oil should be taken with meals, but it should not be taken with Serrapeptase, Nattokinase or Blockbuster All Clear, as it is a protein food product, and it will reduce the enzyme's effectiveness. You can take 2 or more capsules every day.
Note: Acetyl-L-Carnitine can cause some people to have symptoms of overstimulation and insomnia with large doses. Acetyl-L-Carnitine can be taken with or without food, so if you have these symptoms, you might consider taking the second dose earlier in the day.
