Our Comprehensive Enzyme Deficiency Test

Our enzyme deficiency test is both comprehensive and scientific.  In fact, we can back up our testing with science and sound medical ideas.  Additionally, a proper consultation will tell us which of the tests we need to run.   This, in turn will provide the most accurate results possible.  By only running the tests we need, it also helps keep costs down.  This allows us to help your body work properly, in the most cost-effect way possible.

Why Enzymes?

When most people think of enzymes, they think of digestion.  And while there are digestive enzymes, they make up a tiny portion of the enzymes in your body.  An enzyme causes the transformation of a chemical to another chemical.   This is how your body converts the vital nutrients from your food into materials required to stay healthy.  If you look at the food you eat as fuel, and the supplements you take as fuel additives, enzymes are the spark in the spark plug.  With out a good spark, the best fuel in the world does you no good.  Even vitamins are co-enzymes.  That means they can not do their job without the right enzymes in place.    Without enzymes your body could not make the chemicals necessary for life.

The Problems

In fact, there are two ways our body gets enzymes.  First, our body makes them, and second, we get them from our food.  Unfortunately, this makes the problem a two-fold issue.  First, your ability to make your own enzymes declines about 70% by age 40.  To further complicate matters, enzymes are systematically removed from our food by the manufacturer.  Food companies even engineer our fresh fruits and veggies to produce fewer enzymes.  Why would they do this?  Sadly, if the they remove the enzymes, it increases shelf life, saving them money.

The Enzyme Deficiency Test

The first test we can run is called a challenge test.  This test nutritionally stresses the organs in your body, and then provide them with the vital nutrients it needs.  The first part is a control, and the second part is the test.  By comparing the test results before and after you get the nutrition, we can see which organs and systems have difficulty getting or using the vital nutrients it needs.  This test is paired with a scientifically designed signs and symptoms survey.  This in-depth survey collects a detailed health and family history, and asks specific questions about your current health.  We can also collect a 24 hour urine analysis and analyze blood work if necessary.  Once again the preliminary testing during your consultation  determines if your body requires those tests.

Address the Source of Stress

Of course,  the aim of the enzyme deficiency test is to determine the source of stress in your body.  Then through a combination of the right dietary changes, and the right enzyme supplements, we seek to help those stressed parts work properly.  Enzyme supplements are safe, natural and effective.  Regular check-ups including follow-up testing and dietary coaching help you succeed and achieving your wellness goals.
