No prerequisites required

Welcome to the Essential Understanding of Basic Nutrition!

The concepts taught in this collaborative effort between Dr. Howard Loomis Jr. and Elaine Newkirk, ND, LPN is key for the serious student to prepare for Food Enzyme Institute. Whether you are new to us, or a seasoned practitioner, will benefit from the many pearls of wisdom offered as keys to health. You can't make intelligent decisions about your diet if you are not aware of the importance of food enzymes in your diet. You will clearly see why our modern diets and lifestyle cause food enzyme, as well as energy deficiencies that lead to serious imbalances in health. This upbeat seminar will make you rethink online trainings.

What to expect from this course:

  • How the science behind genetically modifying, irradiating, and chemical treatment of food has altered the abilities to digest, absorb, and utilize the nutrition from our ingested foods.
  • Simple improvements to our modern diet will be pointed out, which will show a clear roadmap to dietary health.
  • The digestive anatomy segment may indeed be the area where the most A-HA moments will be you clearly see that a healthy functional digestive system is key to overall health.

This course teaches why addressing the root cause of symptoms is the only answer to properly supporting each person's individual needs, as opposed to covering up the symptoms and creating additional problems.

Enzymes: The 2nd Factor in Nutrition

Prerequisites: Must be an Alternative Healthcare provider with previous nutrition training, and for those who have completed Essential Understanding of Basic Nutrition.

In this online course, Enzymes: The 2nd Factor in Nutrition, you will see how the life work of Howard Loomis Jr, DC., built on Howell's theoretical work, created a scientifically valid analytical system that removes hit-or-miss guesswork. You will learn how to quickly and easily begin to identify energy deficiencies and specifically use food enzymes.

What to expect from this course:

  • You will by guided through basic science concepts that will hone your understanding of normal body function.
  • You will clearly see the connections between deficiencies and the symptoms your body offers as a request for improved nutrition.
  • You will learn to plot symptoms in the Food Enzyme Institute system to clearly see where the energy deficiency occurs.

As each macronutrient cascade (carbohydrates, proteins and lipids) is studied, patterns will form that can easily help recognize compromised energy pathways in areas such as diet, digestion, elimination, autointoxication, autonomic, and endocrine systems. By following the steps outlined in this segment, you will develop a tool that will stay with you throughout your studies with the Food Enzyme Institute.

As Elaine Newkirk gently guides you through the basics of Dr. Loomis' work, you will be prepared to enter The Food Enzyme Institute Seminar Series with confidence.
