I take enough vitamin pills and such so I thought I would try the Serrapeptase suggestion from Marigold (2014) topically. It works brilliantly. I mixed 3-5 caps of the powder with DMSO (a teaspoon or so) and keep that in a container. Apply a little to the area and the pain is gone for a week or 3. Thanks for the help.
Serrapetase did nothing for me. I've taken it for other issues, but I got no relief and actually got worse while taking this. DE seems to be working along with ACV/BSM. I have gone to a wide shoe/boot in every style and sticking soft pads 1/4 in thick under my high arch. Its a fine line between that second toe joint and my arch, if its on the joint, I get worse. Just back of it seems to help. I am hoping this will allow me to forego surgery and podiatrist believes it will eventually.
I have been taking 2 capsules of Serrapeptase every morning on an empty stomach and wow! I can not believe how fast this has worked on the pain and inflammation of Morton's Neuroma! I felt relief by the 2nd day!
Before I was taping my toes, second and third together, fourth and pinky toes together, which offered some relief. Now, after 2 months I don't have to tape and can walk without pain. I still know it's there if I step on a rock, but I'm 100% better than what I was not long ago.
I highly recommend this!
