3 Important Tips for Taking Heal-n-Soothe®

1. Take Heal-n-Soothe® on an empty stomach: The proteolytic enzymes in Heal-n-Soothe® will break down protein in your digestive tract. That’s why you should always take them on an empty stomach. This will help them absorb into your bloodstream to help your joint and muscle discomfort. Take Heal-n-Soothe® at least 30 minutes before or 60 minutes after food for best results.

2. Take Heal-n-Soothe® every day: Heal-n-Soothe® works best with consistent use. Our natural enzyme levels drop quickly as we age, so keeping your enzymes high provides health benefits beyond relief from joint discomfort. Make taking Heal-n-Soothe® a healthy habit, just like brushing your teeth.

3. Be patient – While some feel an immediate difference, others may take days or weeks. That’s to be expected as several factors affect your results including nutritional habits, physical activity level, serving size and consistency of taking Heal-n-Soothe®.

Take Heal-n-Soothe® Consistently Every Day

Unless you have a degree in Enzymology, you probably know very little about systemic proteolytic enzymes or what they do…

Don’t worry — you only need a layman’s understanding of how they work in your body to get their full benefit.

“Systemic” means these enzymes flow throughout your entire circulatory system.

“Proteolytic” means these enzymes break down non-living proteins in your body. These non-living proteins become metabolic bi-product that build up in your blood, joints, soft tissue and organs. They are the source of most of your joint discomfort and irritation, and they hinder your body’s immune response.

Proteolytic enzymes break these waste products down into smaller peptides or amino acids. Your body either finds a use for them or flushes them out of your system.

With the waste gone, your body can begin its natural recovery process.

Every person produces proteolytic enzymes in their body. But as you age, your pancreas decreases production of proteolytic enzymes.

That’s why proteolytic enzyme supplements are important additions to your daily diet. You can also get proteases from raw fruits like pineapple, papaya and kiwis. Even local honey are great sources of proteolytic enzymes.

The more proteolytic enzymes in your body, the more active and mobile you may feel. You may notice chronic nuisances like joint discomfort and irritation start to diminish.

Proteolytic enzymes have one other important function… They regulate the biological processes that control your body’s immune response.

Consistent use of proteolytic enzymes supports a healthy immune response in your body.

Our formula includes five types of proteolytic enzymes. We also use herbal extracts that support the action of the enzymes.

How to Take Heal-n-Soothe®

A standard dose of 3 capsules before bedtime and at least one hour after dinner works well to improve joint and muscle comfort for most people. That’s because the ingredients in Heal-n-Soothe® go to work immediately to support healthy levels of all sorts of waste products and other biological compounds that lead to muscle irritation and uncomfortable joints.

However, there are times when you may experience acute muscle or joint discomfort. These types of flare-ups are most likely to occur after exercise or physical exertion. When that happens, there is nothing wrong with taking two or three doses on a daily basis until improvements are seen.

For two doses, take 3 capsules in the morning at least 30 minutes before breakfast and 3 capsules before bedtime, at least one hour after dinner. (If you choose to add a third dose, we recommend taking it about 30 minutes before your mid-day meal.)

Heal-n-Soothe® Works In Stages

Over the past 12 years we have found that most people who take Heal-n-Soothe® have a similar pattern of health improvements. When you take Heal-n-Soothe® as directed, you can expect to enjoy these benefits in the coming days and weeks:

Week 1: The Cleansing Stage

As you begin taking Heal-n-Soothe®, expect the their powerful activity to begin the process of breaking down metabolic waste products from your blood stream. If you experience a loosening of the stool or change in the odor and color of your urine, don’t be alarmed. This is a normal byproduct of your body expelling metabolic waste. If you don’t notice these changes, that’s okay. It just means there were fewer waste products present to expel.

Weeks 2-4: The Control Stage

This is the stage you’ll begin to feel and enjoy powerful support for joint discomfort, and an ease in joint irritation. At this point the enzymes and herbal extracts will start to ramp up their support of a healthy inflammatory response in your body. You’ll begin to feel a gradual reduction in joint discomfort, and you may feel more active and mobile.

Weeks 4-8: The Breakthrough Stage

By your second month you’ll start to enjoy some of the most powerful, invigorating health benefits Heal-n-Soothe® delivers. This is when the second most important

enzymatic mechanism becomes more noticeable: greater support for the breakdown of excess fibrin and dead tissues that are clogging up your joints and circulation. This is good news for anyone who wants to maintain healthy blood flow and fewer physical discomforts.

Week 9 and beyond: The Continuity Stage

This is the final and most important stage. The enzymes have removed lots of metabolic waste in your body… joint discomfort no longer controls your life… mobility is improved… your body has strong support for a healthy inflammatory response…

But you may have questions. For example…

What if Heal-n-Soothe® isn’t working for me?

Here is an honest truth.

How long it takes before you feel better depends on three things.

  1. How out of balance your enzyme levels are
  2. The severity of any acute or chronic symptoms you may have
  3. How much work the enzymes must do to support your immune system and overall recovery

And while the standard dosage works for most people, there are some cases when extreme support is necessary. But don’t worry. We have you covered.

It’s a schedule that is designed to work even harder to help…

  • Support your body’s inflammatory and immune responses
  • Promote the breakdown excess waste proteins like fibrin and dead tissue in your blood
  • Encourage your body’s production of antibody molecules that fight pathogens and foreign substances…
  • Maintain healthy digestion that assists with the absorption of important nutrients…

We call it an “activation serving size” schedule. It’s an easy way to provoke a more immediate response from your body – to rebalance your enzyme levels as quickly as possible and help you find your personal optimal serving size for the fastest relief.

Days 1-2: Take 3 capsules before bedtime, at least one hour after dinner. Continue this low standard serving size for two days to gauge your tolerance to the normal detoxifying effects of rebalanced enzyme levels in your body.

Days 3-5: Take 3 capsules in the morning at least 30 minutes before breakfast and 3 capsules before bedtime, at least one hour after dinner. Continue for three days so your body can continue to adjust to the detoxifying effects of the increased enzymes. (Days 3-5)

Days 6-8: On days six, seven and eight, add one more capsule to each serving to maximize your enzyme levels for faster healing as needed (i.e. 8 total capsules on day six, 10 on day seven, 12 on day eight).

Step 4: Once you find your “ideal activation serving size”, continue with it until you have a noticeable reduction in joint and muscle discomfort and stiffness. This step normally may take 2 to 12 weeks, a relative short period of time for such a great benefit, depending on the severity of your condition and level of joint and muscle discomfort.

Your age, weight, level of pain, metabolism and other factors will affect how long this step will take.

Maintenance Serving Size

Once you have noticeable benefit, follow the maintenance serving size of 3 capsules. But remember! Any time you experience joint discomfort or muscle discomfort associated with exercise, you can increase your dose again until you feel better.

Now it’s time to make sure you hang on to everything you’ve gained. Don’t throw away the relief and improved health you’ve achieved — be sure to maintain your enzyme levels to keep your body on the path to optimal health.

Expect These Benefits

Stay true to yourself and your commitment to good health. By consistent and continued use of Heal-n-Soothe®, you’ll enjoy countless life-changing benefits in the months and years ahead including:

  • Reduced joint and muscle discomfort associated with exercise

  • Support for a healthy inflammatory response

  • Support for a healthy immune system response

  • Support for your cardiovascular system as the enzymes clean your blood of toxins

  • Support for healthy wound healing

  • Support for faster muscle recovery

  • Enhanced production of antibody molecules that fight against pathogens and other foreign substances

What Else You Need to Do…

While Heal-n-Soothe® can provide powerful health benefits, never rely strictly on any one supplement for optimal health. Your body needs balance  with good nutrition, adequate sleep, regular movement, and a healthy mindset.

Consider and pursue additional lifestyle changes in conjunction with regular use of Heal-n-Soothe® for your best health.

These may include the use of a supplement like Super Joint Support® for bone and joint support, stretches and exercises to improve mobility, use of a far infrared heating pad to help support circulation, eating a healthier diet, drinking more water, improving your sleep, and practicing spiritual well-being to improve your mindset.

Q: How Long Will It Take To Notice a Difference?

A: Results vary by individual. Some customers report results the day after taking their first dose. But, the activation process usually takes one week to a month. If you’re noticing a difference, keep going! Sudden changes often mean the enzymes are working hard. The enzymes are flushing metabolic waste and supporting a healthy immune response in your body.

Q: What do I do if I have a low tolerance to Heal-n-Soothe®?

A: Most people have no issues or discomfort with Heal-n-Soothe®. BUT if If you do, it’s likely due to the enzymatic detoxification process.

Enzymes release so much metabolic waste that you may feel some discomfort. If that happens, follow these steps:

  1. Pause the enzymes for 5 days.
  2. Drink a lot of water.
  3. After the fifth day, continue your regimen at half of the dose at which you stopped.
  4. Add one capsule per day until you get back to feeling normal.
  5. You can taper back down from there to a maintenance dose.

Q: I experience stomach discomfort after taking the capsules. What should I do?

A: If you experience stomach discomfort, decrease your dosage. Wash the capsules under running water before you ingest them. The shell of each capsule has a light dusting of the internal contents. Sometimes that dusting can cause stomach discomfort, but a quick rinse will wash it off.

    Please I need an answer thank you very much.

    1. Steve says:

      That is 100% ok, we are just asking that you take it away from meals.

  3. Rita Frankenfield says:

    I have taken three bottles of this and do not feel any difference. I followed the instructions on how to take it. I recently started to itch all over my body so I stopped taking it and the itching ended. I also take a baby aspirin
    every day. So I feel that I should not be taking it.
    My main reason for trying it is because I really should have had my knee replaced about three years ago but felt
    I was too old. I am 87 years old now and feel I am really too old now. I also feel that I would have to continue to
    take a lot of pills daily,

  4. Steve says:

    Rita, Itching is not a normal response to the product, it could be that you are sensitive to one or more of the ingredients like Pineapple or Papaya. Best that you not continue. Thanks

  5. Esther Brisson says:

    How should you take this product if you have arthritis developing in your thumbs and hands/wrists. I figure this is ‘joint’ as well, but you don’t mention arthritis specifically. I’d appreciate knowing…I have been taking this product for about 45 days now…may not be taking it correctly – but decided to check about arthritis.

    1. Beth says:

      I have diverticulosis. Should I be taking this ?
      I also take one baby aspirin per day

      1. STEVEN HBI-Staff says:

        Beth, It is important that your intestinal lining be in tact, If you have ulcerations from the diverticulosis then no do not take the product, if you do not know, best to ask your Dr if your Dr give you the ok, best to start with just one capsules daily (for several weeks) to see how you tolerate it and do not take more than 3 capsules daily (total).

  6. Linda Pruitt says:

    Is there any research to indicate whether this product can reduce gout inflammation flare?

    1. Steve HBI-Staff says:

      Linda, here is a good historical story of the use of bromelain and other fruits:



  7. Linda P says:

    I had zero expectations when I ordered this, so many folks don’t report any change. I am pleased to report that the severe arthritis in my neck has all but gone. I have great range of motion and no pain after less than a month of use (3 pills 2x daily). The pain in my upper back and shoulders is much less as well. Normally I take trigger point injections every 6 weeks to control pain and allow me to move my neck. So far, so good. I wish the best outcome for everyone. PAIN is no fun!

    1. Steve HBI-Staff says:

      Thank you for the detailed explanation and your experience.

  8. Mark J. Modlo says:

    I am experiencing inflammation and soreness behind right knee. Any advice? Taking six caps per day.

    1. Steve HBI-Staff says:

      Mark, After going to the doctor and getting a proper assessment.

      Heat can help
      Compression can help
      Enzymes can help
      Massage can help
      Stretching can help
      Exercises can help

      One or all of those are a good start

  9. Christine Lyttle says:

    It will be 3 weeks tomorrow that I have been taking Heal-n-Soothe as prescribed and have been taking 12 capsules per day since day 8. I have not felt any relief and do not want to increase the daily dose beyond 12 capsules as it seems extreme to me. Other than moderate rheumatoid Arthritis, I am of healthy weight and practice a healthy anti-inflammatory diet and daily exercise. I do not take any prescription medication at this time. Do you have any advice on the quantity of capsules (12 daily) or the additional amount of time it may take before I begin to notice a difference?

    1. Steve HBI-Staff says:

      Christine, Please note that Heal n Soothe is not an analgesic and does not mask pain but rather supports the body through the different stages of healing and yes that takes time, no way around it. Now, the best option for you at this time is to stay at current levels for a few more days and then drop down to 6 capsules daily (total) for the longer term. If your issue is on a joint that can support a (compression) garment I will say try it. If you are able to do light stretches and exercises do it. BUT do not stress the joint past tolerance. Steve

  10. Cynthia D Harker says:

    I’ve been taking this for 15dys @ 3caps once a day to make sure no side affects. Well, as of 1/23/21 I am starting the full regimine !!! Ive had such wonderful results with the lesser, I want it all !! After about a week I noticed my shoulders & knees weren’t hurting. Also, my gut is getting so clean & free from buildup I feel lighter & less bloat. I will write again in a couple more weeks with full dosage results 😊. FYI, other people, if there is a little discomfort in lower belly, don’t worry cause you’re being cleaned out & the discomfort goes away when the buildup is gone !!!!

  11. Jacinta says:

    Can I crush heal and soothe and put it in water or juice since it is difficult to swallow capsules?

    1. STEVEN says:

      Jacinta, If you have a hard time swallowing capsules you can (open the capsules and put the content into applesauce, mix it well and take it that way) [Please make sure you drink adequate water, after]

  12. Angel says:

    Does this help with chronic level 8 back pain? Bursitis? Degenerative disc condition? I have a chronic back condition. Thanks

    1. STEVEN HBI-Staff says:

      Angel, The product can help support the tissue around those issues and help in both feel and function, that said, once you feel better and start to function better, there is a next step, as in doing stretches and exercises to get you body back to balance to tolerate the stress if your day. Yes, it is a two part process and yes the second part is mandatory… Thanks Steve
