    I was diagnosed with this disease 13 years ago. Both my mother and son died of it. Mother diagnosed and died 5 years later at age 83. My son also died of it at age 59 and died about 5-6 yrs after diagnosed. When I was diagnosed I did a lot of research and found this Enzyme “Serrapenese”. Started taking it as directed and in one week felt so much better. Hospitalized for hip fracture and could not take it for 3 weeks and what a difference. Had to have oxygen (which I am not on) cough came back…got home & stated taking again & in one week I was feeling like myself again. I have been on it for 5 years now and no oxygen, no shortness of breath no symptoms of PF.

      Thank you Gwen for sharing your story and your experience with serrapeptase. I am really sorry to hear about your mother and your son. Our research study on pulmonary fibrosis (PF) patients also points to the beneficial effects of a systemic enzyme complex containing serrapeptase in reducing symptoms and improving quality of life of patients. Our goal is to increase awareness of this and other complementary treatments for PF so a lot more patients, like you, can potentially benefit from it. Again, we really appreciate you being your own best advocate and sharing your story, which I’m sure will give hope to the thousands of suffering patients.
