Enzymes: Enzymes help to nourish our body organs and bodily functions. Without proper enzymes our bodies may slowly deteriorate and become susceptible to disease, early aging, and illness. There are three types of enzymes; those that the body creates to digest food, those that are found naturally in uncooked foods, and metabolic enzymes that the body produces to control all the chemical reactions in the body.
If Enzymes are found in foods, and my body produces enzymes, then why do I need to supplement with enzyme therapies?
The most important factor is the fact that our standard American diet lacks the enzymes we need to digest and assimilate the nutrients in our foods.
Our typical diets of predominantly cooked, processed, contaminated and chemically-altered food causes an enzyme deficiency in the body, which puts extreme levels of stress on the pancreas and pituitary gland, as these are the organs responsible for producing the enzymes necessary to digest the enzyme depleted foods we eat. This stress adds up over the years; our organs become exhausted and tired, and don’t work as they once did, which eventually leads to various health conditions that plague many Americans today, such as:
- Low immunity
- Endocrine imbalances
Besides the foods we eat, another factor comes into play with our ability to produce enzymes. As we age, our bodies produce fewer enzymes, meaning that all chemical reactions that take place are slower and don’t happen as often. This means that the cellular processes that are necessary for maintaining bodily systems and organs aren’t working as well as they did when we were younger; cellular waste takes longer to be disposed of, and nutrient absorption and assimilation inside the body doesn’t occur as fast as needed for optimal health. The older we get, the more important it becomes to supplement the body with the enzymes it needs to function optimally.
What is Enzyme Therapy by the Loomis Institute which is provided at Creative Lifeflow?
The Loomis Method requires a 24 hour Urine Analysis Test along with a 45 minute Digestive Challenge Test.
This therapy, although effective, is complex and professional advice should always be sought, in this case, by an Enzymologist trained by the Loomis Institute. If you have an Enzyme exam, your results are reviewed by doctors at the Loomis Institute and in addition a protocol is suggested.
People have reported that enzyme therapy has been known to optimize the following:
- Bowel Elimination
- Immune System
- Autonomic Nervous System
- Endocrine System
Loomis Institute: Enzyme Therapy
Dr. Loomis’s interest in nutritional food enzymes began when he had the opportunity to bring the theoretical work of Edward Howell, MD, the food enzyme pioneer, into the clinic. Dr. Loomis spent years in the clinic developing a system for correctly identifying nutritional deficiencies in the body. His system, the Loomis System™, is now recognized as a legitimate and proven method of determining nutritional stresses on the body.
Dr. Loomis has an extensive background in enzymes and enzyme supplements. He is the founder and president of Enzyme Formulations®, Inc. His extensive knowledge of physiology, biochemistry, and enzymology has made him a sought-after speaker and a prolific writer. Dr. Loomis publishedENZYMES: The Key to Health in 1999. He also writes regular columns for The Chiropractic Journal and contributes special articles to The American Chiropractor.
As president for over 15 years of 21st Century Nutrition® (now the Loomis Institute™ of Enzyme Nutrition), he has forged a remarkable career as an educator. With his exciting approach to health and wellness, he shows practitioners how diet and digestion can play a role in the prevention of chronic degenerative diseases. He has conducted over 400 seminars in the United States and internationally on the diagnosis and treatment of food enzyme deficiency syndromes.
