My journey to pregnancy has been documented in this blog with everything that I’ve tried and I’ve promised to provide more information on how I got pregnant, etc. One of the main lessons I’ve learned is that your body is doing something because you did something “to” it. I come from a family where my mom’s cancer was cured with diet. She was in a bad state where the doctor sent her home basically to “die” and we changed her diet and instead saved her life and for the last 20 years, she’s been super healthy. Cancer evolves from bad cells growing all over your body thereby creating tumors. It could have started from fibrin and other matters but most of all, it’s related to your diet.
With all the processed food we have today, it’s no wonder our bodies are telling us to watch out. It’s a sign. All fried, processed foods gives you chemicals that your body finds hard to process and thereby shutting down because it’s too tired. It’s like a car. If you drive it too long and not change the oil, other things will start failing. Your body is the same. You need to fuel it with what it wants.
For endometriosis and endometrioma, I admit I’ve been a horrible eater all my life up until I found out I had endo and I immediate changed my diet 360 for the last 2.5 years. Some people may say it’s “too” hard to follow a strict diet, etc. but when your eternal happiness of having a baby is on the line or when your “life” (as in my mother’s case) is on the line, do you really want to eat another bite of that chemically processed food? Is it really worth losing your baby or life to it? Food is in essence, just a fuel for us to go about every day to enjoy our surroundings and family more isn’t it? When I think about it that way, there isn’t anything I can’t give up.
I stumbled upon Serrapeptase in late June. My hobby in the last two years has been finding new healthy foods that help with fertility and shrink my endometrioma. I was looking for natural products that can dissolve blood clots. Afterall, my endometrioma were “blood clots.” All the research has shown that Serrapeptase helps patients with stroke but not very many mentioned it with anything else. Their top selling point is really getting rid of blood clots and stroke patients. However, I searched some more and found that of the few women that did take it for fibroids and endometriosis, their menstrual pains went away and some as quickly as the month in which they took it. This was very interesting to me.
Serrapeptase is an enzyme. We all know our bodies need multiple enzymes to break down items we eat and transfer them into useful molecules for our body. Therefore, anything to do with enzymes, I’m in for. We also used multiple enzymes during my mom’s cancer treatment so already I have a positive outlook towards this supplement. Serrapeptase is a natural occurring enzyme in silkworm intestine. Sounds crazy I know but hey, if it has no side effects, I’m happy to be the guinea pig. There I was ordering it right away for expedited delivery. I started taking 3 times the dosage the first week of July 2011. For treatment purposes, I opted to take 3 times the dosage as many women were doing the same for their period pains. Anything for period pains right? As in my situation, I wanted to get pregnant and if period pains go away, hurray!
Nattokinase was another enzyme that was mentioned with Serrapeptase. Every been to a Japanese restaurant and ordered a sticky brown bean like dish called Natto? Or have you seen that very old episode of America’s Next Top Model where their task was to eat Natto with model – like nature and say “yummy” for a commercial? Well, this is extracted from Natto! This amazing supplement also helps to dissolve fibrin. What is fibrin related to? Endometriosis. Those sticky things that get your bowels stuck to your uterus stuck to your ovaries and everything else is… fibrin. If this can help dissolve it, why not give it a try? Again, I tripled the dosage. Started eating this the same time as Serrapeptase. Which one did the job? No idea but does it matter? None of these two items have a side effect. What’s the harm?
Mid September 2011, I found out I was pregnant. I admit I have been on a strict diet for about 2 years prior to being pregnant and also started with new ingredients in my juices, etc. so everything could have an effect. However, I do say that Serrapeptase and Nattokinase definitely did not hurt! Along with my Chinese herbs I was taking, I think my body was finally taking a good turn of events and responding to my treatment.
Why not give it a try? It also works on fibroids. I cannot recommend which brand is better. That part you’ll have to do your research. I bought mine in Canada at the time since I was there but the United States has more options which I didn’t look into. Why not give it a try and let me know how you feel and your results? For women who “aren’t” trying to get pregnant. Can you imagine a period without pains? What’s the harm in trying? I spent about $90-$100 for the two bottles combined. To me, this is a LOT more worth it than trying to do surgery and getting back those endo’s the next month or going through the pain again or even risk getting ovaries removed! Ladies, let’s admit it, we need our ovaries! They’re actually healthy for us to keep to regular hormones, etc.
