Enzyme Nutrition

Enzyme Nutrition is the art and science of using nutrition to maintain homeostasis in the body. It works with the body’s innate intelligence to bring the body to optimal health using whole foods that contain protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, rather than trying to manipulate it by using chemical compounds that produce side effects.

Food enzymes are a natural and important component in our food supply, yet they are systematically removed to extend shelf-life. Profitability requires extended shelf-life but enzymes must be replaced, just as vitamins and minerals are. For example, when milk is pasteurized it depletes the vitamin A and D content as well as enzymes. The vitamins are added back in, but the enzymes are not. Protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals are the building materials for the body but enzymes are the construction workers.

Every body is biochemically unique. Optimal health can only be attained when each person is viewed that way. Individuals cannot and should not be categorized or labeled to fit into a particular pharmaceutical paradigm. What is good for the general public is not necessarily good for the individual. Before reccomendations are made for an individual, specific biochemical and mechanical needs must be ascertained and not subjectively surmised.

We use proven and time-honored standards to nutritionally support the body. We recognize that the best sources of nutrients are not concentrated chemical compounds but whole foods with contents that act synergistically when properly digested and assimilated.


Comprehensive 3 Visit Digestion/Nutrition Evaluation based on the Loomis Institute of Enzyme Nutrition

This evaluation is for people with long term health imbalances or those who simply desire a comprehensive digestion/nutrition evaluation. Your first visit will last approximately sixty to ninety minutes and requires that you fast for at least ten hours before the visit [nothing but a small amount of water during those ten hours]. At the end of the first visit you will leave with a 24 hour urine test kit with instructions for collecting and shipping your specimen. Once we receive the 24 hour urine test results you will be scheduled for your second visit where we will review with you findings from all aspects of this comprehensive evaluation [exam findings; signs and symptoms profile; urine test]. Your individualized health balancing program will be reviewed at this visit as well. Your third visit will be scheduled two to four weeks later in order that we can evaluate progress toward goal achievement and make adjustments.
