How has ozone blood therapy worked for hypercoagulation? Per treatment cost?

Seems the more oxygen my blood can carry the better I will think, feel, and heal.

As part of my treatment I am thinking about trying this therapy stateside and noted the improvements for the folks that went to Germany.

I am taking Nattakinese and just started Serrapeptase.

Thanks, MattH

Nattokinase and serrapeptase work for me.

What dose are you taking?

Were you tested for a hypercoagulation disorder?

Polly,

I have been taking Fibronol (two daily) and Nattokinase (three daily). On Tuesday I added Serrapeptase at 5 per day. I have gotten some improvement on the leg pain by adding the Serrapeptase.

I have not been tested for hypercoagulation yet. I do have signficant neuro symptoms.

If I have Lyme (I am doing a DR directed ABX challenge test this weekend), I have had it for more than 30 years. Dr. K suggest that people with Lyme that long are at high risk of hypercoagulation (not a direct quote but what I interpret from his KPU presentation).

My current LLMD does not provide ozone treatment. However he does not have a problem with me trying it.

So I am wondering if it has worked others with late stage Lyme to get more oxygen into the blood and reduce the hypercoagulation. I realize this is not a cure but may buy time while going through treatment.

All the Best, MattH

How many milligrams of Nattokinase are you taking 3 times a day? 50 mg? 100 mg?

How many milligrams of Serrapeptase? or FU's?

FU= Fibrinolytic Unit.

100 mg of nattokinase = 2000 FU's

I don't know about Fibrinol, that's new to me. How many milligrams or FU's are you taking?

Do you notice any symptoms of hypercoagulation? Oh, i see, leg pain. That sounds significant!

Why not get the coagulation panel blood test? Then you'd have some official documentation.

I think you can get all the fibrinolytic action you need conveniently from pills. Ozone therapy sounds like a hassle! There's also lumbrokinase ; i've never taken that, it's expensive.

Polly,

I will request the coagulation panel from by LLMD. Symptoms, varicos and spider viens, swollen legs and feet, leg, knee and hand pain. Sometimes I get a gout flair.

I am trying the Serrapeptase for now, may try lumbrokinase but as you know if is very expensive ($1 per pill).


I am taking 2 x 2000fu capsules one in the moring and once before bed.

Serrapeptase 2 x 40000 units morning, 2 evening, 2 before bed.

Fibronon is an extract from brown seaweed (Seanol F) and is supposed to help with circulation. I notice the difference when I do not take it. Seems to help with hand and foot pain, still there but not as intense. I have been holding off on asperins since I thought I had Lyme. LLMD has me on abx challenge test this weekend. Day one Flagyl, day two and three Biaxin.

I get these from Iherb. I have noticed the serrapeptase has improved my pain also and I read that you should double the dose initially and then when it starts working you can back down. So I started at 6 and have been using it for a week and look to cut back one or two next week.

I assume for me they are reducing some imflammation and thus reducing the foot, knee and hand pain. Nothing else to report yet.

All the Best,

MattH

Matt, you should also run the Factor V Leiden genetic mutation test to rule out any innate clotting issues.

I personally take 5 nattokinase pills (@ 2000 FU's each, 100mg each), 3 times aday, plus a couple more in the middle of the night.

That's the dose my body tells me to take. If i take fewer pills, i start getting lower leg symptoms.

If i do get any lower leg symptom, i just take a few more nattokinase pills, and the symptom goes away immediately.

I'm taking a much higher dose than you, and i have no symptoms. I have one or two genes for blood clots.

I also take Horse Chestnut twice a day. That's for varicose veins; shouldn't you take that too?

I take ginko pill twice a day, for circulation.

I do take serrapeptase once or twice a day, but don't notice any difference. It's said to be effective against biofilms.

The coagulation panel that i took was the first step, before a gene analysis. They can tell something about your genes from the blood test, before going to the expense of a gene analysis.

It was a local lab used by my local hospital.

I think it was just called Coagulation Panel, a few years ago.

I haven't researched what the national labs would call it.
