Dr. Alyssa has undergone training through the Loomis Enzyme Institute, which teaches a system of diagnostic techniques that can be used to determine the hidden causes of chronic symptoms. All stress, whether it is from a mechanical, chemical, or emotional source, increases the body’s need for nutrition.
The Loomis system allows for a better understanding of what parts of the body and digestive system are under stress. With this information a supplement protocol specific to your needs can be made. The ways your nutritional status can affect you include, but are not limited to your mood, energy levels, sleep, allergies, digestion, and musculoskeletal function. Your supplement protocol may include digestive enzymes and/or herbs that help support your body's physiology. The enzymes in these supplements act on the food you eat and help to improve digestion and absorption so that your body is better able to utilize the nutrients in foods that you are consuming. This helps to relieve the stress on your body systems so that you feel and function your very best.
