    Since inflammation on gcmaf is uncomfortable and often determines the limit of how fast someone can heal, has anyone tried anti inflammatory supps to help lower it ?

    I am waiting on my nagalase results and starting gcmaf soon.

    The top of my list is serrapeptase, since it digests dead tissue and junk that gcmaf may generate and also is a potent anti inflammatory.

    Also things like

    Turmeric
    Grape seed or resveratrol
    Msm
    Omega 3
    Omega 7
    Astaxanthin

    Yes, I find that anti-inflammatories help. I use a high dose of curcumin and also berberine, but others should work too.

    Many also find that a histamine blocker helps too.

    Personally, if I had nagalase that high I'd use injectable as it is likely to have a more systemic effect.

    thank you sushi, I am actually a bit scared of herxing when taking gcmaf. In the past, I have been so senstitive to die off and herxing and detoxing.

    Maybe I will start out with a yogurt so I can start slowly and then recheck nagalase level and then move on to the injectable. maybe starting slowly with yogurt can avoid over-herxing.

    I didn't get herx with GcMAF--in the first months there would be one day a week when I felt extra tired--then that effect passed.

    I think the most common problem is inflammation. With either form it is good to start with quite a low dose--particularly if you don't have experienced medical supervision.
