What is the best enzyme or enzymes to take for DC?
There is a variety of different systemic enzymes that are useful as a part of the overall treatment of Dupuytrens contracture. Neprinol, Fibrozym, Nattokinase and Bromelain are the enzyme products that can be used.
Each person will respond differently and so I can offer no magic answer to your question. The best one for you is determined over time by observing the response of your palm nodules and cords, and the changes in your finger contracture while you are under self-treatment.
If you are looking to isolate the very best single therapy and concentrate your efforts with that one product, you will not be successful. The best treatment results are seen when a broad and diverse group of therapies are used to support and encourage tissue healing. These are not drugs that we suggest for Dupuytren treatment, these most closely can be thought of as foods.
The current thinking – since this kind of thinking does change as we all know – is that perhaps one of the best foods you can eat is salmon (or broccoli, or blueberries, or walnuts or…). What if you concentrated your entire diet to that one food? What would happen to you if you ate nothing but salmon? Or just broccoli? Or just…? Would that be the best way for you to eat to sustain life and health? No, of course not. Even though some people would say that you are eating the “best” food, you need a broad and diverse diet to meet all your nutritional needs.
The same way with Dupuytrens treatment. You need a broad and diverse intake of a variety of nutrients and enzymes to help your body rid itself of the palm lumps that plague you.
I cannot tell you which enzyme or enzymes would work best for you. That is best determined on an individual basis while monitoring the condition of your lumps and cords for changes. TRH
