An interesting recent study out of Denmark found that a 90-day course of antibiotics reduced or eliminated back pain in 75% of participants.
That’s promising news for chronic back pain sufferers… but there’s a problem with antibiotics. They don’t just kill off the bad flora, they also kill off the good. And an increased use of antibiotics has been associated with a 37% increase in cancer rates.
So what should you do? How about using something that helps your body fight off the bad bacteria naturally while keeping the good: systemic proteolytic enzymes. These are enzymes your body produces in abundance… until your late 20s when production falls off a cliff.
Taking a proteolytic enzyme supplement not only boosts your immune system against bad bacteria, it also cleans up excess fibrin in your bloodstream which clogs your arteries with scar tissue and leads to systemic inflammation… another major contributor to back pain.
