A primary benefit of natural enzymes is eliminating and preventing scar tissue and fibrosis. Fibrosis itself is scar tissue. As we age, fibrosis becomes a leading cause of eventual death. Around our late 20's our bodies being to produce a diminishing output of enzymes and by the time we reach our 40's we produce very little enzymes. Cystic Fibrosis patients have virtually no enzyme production to speak of, and even cystic fibrosis children seldom make it past their 20's before they die of the restriction and shrinkage in the lungs from the formation of fibrosis or scar tissue.
As a result of diminishing enzyme production, our bodies are less and less able to reduce the over abundance of fibrin it deposits in nearly everything from simple cuts, to the inside of our internal organs and blood vessels. This inability is particularly noticeable in women, who frequently develop conditions such as fibrocystic breast disease, uterine fibroids, adhesions, and endometriosis. Men and women alike grow arterial sclerotic plaque (which is scar tissue). We are all also prone to have fibrin begin to spider its way into our internal organs, reducing the organs size and function over time. As we age, our wounds heal with thicker, less pliable, weaker and more visible scars.
By replacing lost enzymes we can help control and reduce scar tissue and fibrosis, thus preventing many of the problems associated with lack of enzymes and excess fibrin. Adding vital enzymes can also help reverse and control existing conditions caused by fibrosis. Even old scar tissue can be dissolved and "eaten away" from surgical wounds, pulmonary fibrosis, kidney fibrosis and even keloids years after their formation. Though doctors in the United States are only recently becoming aware of the benefits of added enzymes, doctors in Europe and Asia have been administering enzymes for decades.
Among the best enzymes for removal of scar tissue are serrapeptase and nattokinase. Chymotypsin and pancreatin are considered to be especially valuable against cancer tumors, especially pancreatic cancer tumors.
An especially powerful enzyme is serrapeptase, which is a proteolytic enzyme derived from a species of bacteria originally found in the intestines of silkworms. The bacteria Serratia mercesans E1 produces Serrapeptase, an enzyme that enables the silkworm to dissolve its tough cocoon and emerge as the silkworm moth. Serratia is produced by fermented cultures. Studies have shown that serrapeptase reduces scar tissue, improves tissue healing and significantly reduces inflammation.
Serrapeptase also has the unique ability to digest non-living tissue that is a by-product of the healing response without harming living tissue. Serrapeptase is used to dissolve non-living tissues to include: scar tissue, fibrosis, blood clots, cysts and arterial plaque. It is also used as an anti-inflammatory agent against Sinusitis and for thinning mucous secretion and as an agent against varicose veins and fibrocystic breasts. It is believed that serrapeptase can play a key role in dissolving the outer protective layers of cancer cells and tumors to enable the immune system and other cancer fighters to better attack the cancer.
Serrapeptase may be particularly effective for those who have lung problems, as it clears out all of the inflammation, mucus and dead/scar tissue. Clearing away problem tissues enables the body's own natural healing system to be able to better replace the bad tissue with healthy tissue and result in better lung function. Serrapeptase also helps eliminate old scar tissue by slowly digesting all of the dead tissue/scar tissue so that it can be replaced as needed with healthy tissue
Serrapeptase is particularly sensitive to a low pH, thus the supplement versions which are enterically-coated are considered superior.

When I began this vaginal steaming journey, I was so excited and I wanted to start right away. My only dilemma was, what am I going to use to steam this "vajayjay" of mine?? I didn't want to use my toilet. That didn't feel very queen-like to me. (Even though it is a "throne," haha! Gosh, I'm so corny. Still, not my idea of a throne) I didn't have an old wooden chair to cut a hole in it. I didn't have a spare toilet seat top laying around to use over a non-plastic bucket, or anything of this nature. So, I decided to look online and try to buy a vaginal steaming seat made just for this purpose. Sounds logical enough, right? So, Amazon and Google, here I come!
When I tell you I was disappointed with these search results...man! I am going to need someone to tell me why a wooden box with a hole in the top of it costs upwards of $150-$400??! And there was even one seat, that was not really a steaming seat, basically just a wooden toilet seat top that you would have to put on top of something. It was a slab of wood with a hole in it. It costed $70!!
Have you ever done a Vaginal Steam? If you’re not familiar with vaginal steams, get ready to be amazed! Vaginal steaming isn’t some kind of new fad or strange trend. Vaginal steaming is actually the most ancient form of female self care to revitalize the reproductive system.
Vaginal steaming is one of the oldest women's healing traditions. It is known by quite a variety of names such as V-Steams, Vagi-Steams, Yoni Steams, Bajos (which means "down low") amongst the Spanish and Mayans, and in Korea, it's referred to as Chai Yok. Mayan healers and midwives have used vaginal steams for centuries. You may also hear it referred to as womb spa or womb sauna.
So, what's it like? It's like a facial steam, but for your "vajayjay." Yes, I still say, "vajayjay." (side note: my hubby calls his penis the "vajohn." LOL)
Anywho...vaginal steaming is a powerful aid for increasing a woman’s vitality in regulating her menstrual cycle, relieving stress and depression, improving her intimate relationship, and most importantly, resolving reproductive disorders.
Castor oil packs are ah-maaaa-zing!!! From increasing circulation to supporting the lymphatic system to fighting infections and preventing the growth of bacteria, viruses, yeast, and mold to healing scars and internal adhesions to easing constipation, etc, etc! Natural healers worldwide have used castor oil to treat a wide variety of health conditions for thousands of years. The use of castor oil goes back as far as the ancient Egyptians, who used it as a very potent natural skincare elixir and to treat eye irritations. In India, castor oil has been cherished for its skin-healing, digestive-calming, antibacterial properties, and is commonly used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine applications.
One of castor oil's remarkable qualities is its ability to increase white blood cells, and the count of T-11 cells (a unique type of white blood cells that act like antibodies) produced within the body's lymphocytes that help kill bacteria, viruses, fungi, and cancer cells.
Much of the healing benefits of castor oil come down to its chemical composition. Castor oil is classified as a triglyceride fatty acid, and in fact, about 90 percent of its fatty acid content is a rare compound called ricinoleic acid. Castor oil is considered to be quite exceptional because ricinoleic acid is not found in too many other substances, and it's such a concentrated source.
