Enzymes could fix insomnia, hot flashes, pain, low energy and more

Much has been written about the necessity of digestive enzymes, but why exactly are they so important? In a nutshell, here’s the answer.

An enzyme is a large protein molecule that is found in all living things, from food, to humans, to cats and dogs.   In nutrition, they're essential to breaking down food into energy and ultimately making your body.  Without enzymes the body cannot use proteins, fats, carbohydrates, fibers and the sugars we eat, leaving our bodies nutrient deficient.

Whether a person is not sleeping, has low energy, headaches, constipation, diarrhea or aches and pains, a common denominator could be enzyme deficiency. Enzymes could be the missing link that makes them whole again.

My own personal experience with enzymes made a lasting impression. I discovered enzymes during a time when I was having night sweats and hot flashes all the time. Now if you have ever experienced hot flashes and night sweats you can understand how frustrating they can be. I was not sleeping at night and could not get comfortable during the day. I tried many different things but nothing seemed to help.

I began to work with a practitioner who was clinically trained in enzymes, and I was pleasantly surprised at how effective enzymes were — and how quickly they worked. I was able to sleep through the night and wake up feeling refreshed.

After the experience, I studied with Dr. Hoard Loomis Jr. with the Loomis Institute and became certified to work with enzymes with my clients. The results are amazing, not just for hot flashes and night sweats, but with anxiety, depression, insomnia, digestive issues, headaches and the list goes on!

Feeling better, having more energy and ultimately improving the quality of your life might be as easy and simple as getting on the right enzyme protocol.
