9. Note …use of Proteolytic Enzymes can significantly cut down the healing times of surgeries, joint sprains and swelling.  Proteolytic Enzymes work by breaking down “digesting” damaged tissues in post-surgery and in strain/sprain injuries especially where there is evidence of extravascular blood (black and blue discoloration), tissue debris and inflammation.

Proteolytic Enzymes are available in health food stores.  Products are generally taken multiple times daily between meals (45 minutes).
A common product and brand is Wobenzym.
