Plasmapheresis - surgery or enzymes?

More about systemic enzymes that are keeping me MS attacks-free - here

Many autoimmune diseases, including myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, Guillain-Barré syndrome etc, are caused by a so-called autoimmune processes.

Some of the special cells involved in autoimmune process can attack host body organs or tissues directly, while others could produce autoantibodies - substances, circulating in the blood and accomplish the attack.

Antibodies, acting against the body's own organs or tissues are known as autoantibodies.

Allopathic medicine solutions

Drugs-based treatment usually suppresses activity of deregulated immune system and sometimes additionally reduces inflammation of attacked tissues. That's the most common approach to autoimmune disease for almost 50 years. Many newly introduced immunosuppressants are regularly becoming available, but all the synthetic medications used for autoimmune diseases treatment have serious side effects - especially when taken in high doses for years...

In the 1970s a new approach of autoimmune diseases treatment was developed. Medications that suppress the immune system or reduce inflammation are often combined with this new treatment, but they usually can be used in reduced doses.

Idea behind this new treatment was really simple: instead of changing to suppress the immune system only with powerful medication, it could be possible to mechanically remove autoantibodies from the blood during a process similar to dialysis treatment. The procedure later became known as plasmapheresis or plasma separation. It's also known as plasma exchange.

Basics of all plasmapheresis procedure can be find in articles:

Plasmapheresis side effects

Plasmapheresis is a sort of invasive procedure, so it's sometimes named "Blood surgery"

As any kind of surgery, this one also possesses some dangers:

Holistic approach - enzymes

Therapeutic doses of proteases (protein digesting enzymes) act as an all-natural blood enhancer!

They break down all sorts of protein-based invaders in the blood supply, leaving them vulnerable to destruction by the immune system.

Protease is also known to act as a scavenger of oxidized and damaged proteins, is active in helping to eliminate blood toxins, modulate the immune system, addresses hormonal imbalances, speeds wound and tissue repair, helps to arrest and remove heavy metals and removes their toxins.

Benefits of proteases therapeutic doses (when taken on an empty stomach):

Protease side effects:


Even superficial survey shows clear advantage of proteolytic enzyme (protease) therapy over traditional plasmapheresis.

Nevertheless, no officially trained doctor will advice an autoimmune patient enzyme treatment. There exist many different reasons (based mainly on pharmaceutical business aspects) for that:

Anyhow, it's good to know different available options for dealing with all autoimmune diseases, including Multiple Sclerosis.


PS Just reminder - I managed to stop MS exacerbations and stay on a permanent remission from 1997, using therapeutic doses of protease enzymes for over 18 months.

    Or you might try something like NAET which turns off the body's immune response to those proteins. Just a thought.

    Hello I have RRMS and have been taking protease enzymes since July 2011. What is a therapeutic doses of protease enzymes?

    I have MS that is causing extreme problems, to the point that my life is almost unable to live due to disability, so I am more interested in your information. Please email me with more information. I would be grateful for anything that could possibly help. Email address is cbeckett*
    Thank you
