Have you heard of using enzymes, such as Wobenzym, for inflammation? Do you think this therapy might calm down other types of inflammation in the body, such as auto-immune responses too?

Oral proteolytic enzymes given on an empty stomach, regardless of brand name, have multiple beneficial effects, including the ones you mentioned. However, if you are on the verge of gut inflammation, oral enzymes can push you over the edge.
