The generally suggested dosage of 10 capsules per day is the minimum for all fibroid sizes, or what your healthcare practitioner recommends. Women with large or mature fibroids, or who wish to speed up the process, can take up to 12 to 15 caps per day. It is a good idea to gradually work your way up to the suggested use to help minimize the cleansing response.
You will first notice that Vitalzym is working in your body during the Initial Cleansing Phase. Cleansing can last several months, but for most people the majority of the cleansing and detoxification is completed within the first one to two months. This cleansing phase is also preparing your body to utilize the enzymes more effectively.
During this time you will have increased your dosage to the Activation Phase dose, as suggested above. Cleansing and detoxifying will continue. As your body becomes more cleansed, more of the enzymes are available to work on fibrosis. Most women begin to notice changes in their fibroids after the first month or two, some more quickly, some a little later. For some women, shrinkage may not occur.
As you continue with Vitalzym, any symptoms you may experience from your fibroids will gradually decrease. There are many variables that determine the amount and timeliness of fibroid shrinkage. It may take 3 to 6 months, or longer, for major shrinkage of your fibroids. Controlling your estrogen levels through balancing your hormones, consistent dosage of Vitalzym, the original size of your fibroids, and proper diet and nutrition all play a role in the timeliness of the shrinkage. It is suggested you wait at least 4 months before evaluating your results with an examination, ultrasound, or an MRI.
It's been clinically proven that the more enzymes you take, the quicker your body can repair, restore, and strengthen itself. It takes time to re-educate the body's natural ability to repair, restore, and strengthen itself, so be patient. After you feel your fibroids have shrunk adequately, it is suggested you go on a Maintenance Dose of Vitalzym to shrink any regrowth. Proper hormone balance will assist in preventing regrowth.
Read the Vitalzym Suggested Use page for more details on the various phases.
Consider the other suggested supplements that may assist in your efforts to shrink your fibroids, such as DIM, Calcium D-Glucarate, Myomin, and Progesta-Care progesterone cream. Controlling estrogen dominance can be a great help in controlling current and future growth of fibroid tumors and other women's fibrosis conditions.
During the Activation Phase you may notice the following:
Estrogen Flair Reaction – Women with fibroids often experience bloating just before the period begins, and this can be intense, especially for women taking DIM. When estrogen-dependent fibroids do not get the estrogen they want, due to the effects of DIM, they can cause swelling, bloating, and other symptoms known as the “estrogen flair reaction.” This usually occurs right before the start of your period if you are limiting the estrogen every way possible, through diet, DIM, and other supplements. If this happens to you, that doesn't necessarily indicate that your fibroid is growing. These symptoms often improve after the first month or two on DIM.
Discharge – Some women with internal fibroids may experience a visible discharge from the uterus. This is a common sign that the lysing (dissolving) of the fibroid is occurring. The color of this discharge can range from clear to white to blood red or brown periodically during the first few months. If you experience any discharge that alarms you, please consult your doctor.
Additional Bleeding – Women who are anemic or have heavy periods may experience some additional bleeding while on Vitalzym. The enzymes in Vitalzym are a mild blood thinner. If you experience additional or heavier bleeding, you may consider reducing your dosage of Vitalzym, or stop taking it altogether, during your period. If you are anemic, consider supplementing with iron temporarily. As your fibroids shrink, symptoms such as heavy periods will diminish, and you can continue with the higher doses of Vitalzym during your period.

Please note that it is not advisable to take enzymes to eliminate fibroids while pregnant, as pockets of estrogen may be released from the fibroid as it dissolves and cause a hormonal imbalance that could cause a miscarriage. See the FAQ page for further information.
