If you suffer from generalized symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, heartburn, gas/bloating, constipation, diarrhea, or stiff achy joints, then you may have digestive issues.
As we age, it becomes more difficult to absorb the nutrients we need such as calcium. Our bodies become energy deficient. Digestive stress can create muscle contraction, inflammation and worsen arthritic conditions.
While medications can help the symptoms, they do not improve digestion.
The Enzyme Therapy Solution
Dr. Patterson is certified in enzyme therapy using the Loomis System.
We use Enzymes formulations to accomplish 3 things.
- Improve the digestion and absorption of food.
- Improve elimination of waste products
- Nourish stressed organ systems
TESTING AND RECOMMENDATIONS
After taking a history, we perform a Source of Stress examination and 24 hour urine test. This allows us to determine which enzyme formulations to prescribe. We also make dietary recommendations on foods that particular patient should eat or avoid eating.
24 HOUR URINE TESTING
Performing specific lab tests on a 24 hour urine sample gives us valuable information about your digestion. It tells us how you are digesting carbs, proteins and fats. We also look at a number of other factors such as your level of bowel toxicity, hydration, and pH.
SOURCE OF STRESS EXAM
A special physical examination is performed where we look for muscle contraction, indicating organ stress. We examine you both fasting and non-fasting. This testing takes approximately 1 1/2 hours in the office to complete.
