Enzymes and biofilm -

Systemic enzymes can be an important part of treatment as well. These are enzymes such as serratio peptidase, lumbrokinase (boluoke), wobenzym etc. We don't use these enzymes to assist with digestion but rather to help the body with breaking down suspected biofilm.

Biofilm is basically "slime" - an area of usually lipid which is secreted and sequestered by communities of organisms as a result of secretion of quorum sensing molecules. In effect, the bugs talk to each other. The slime community prevents adequate infiltration by the immune system, and prevents the antibiotics often from working well.

The enzymes work to break down this biofilm so that the immune system can affect the infection, as can the medications. But... if done quickly or aggressively again often the symptoms can get worse as the bugs are being released.
