Jeffrey Griffin, founder of the Center for Natural Healing, in Doylestown, was a practicing doctor of chiropractic with over 15 years of clinical experience when, in 2003, he was introduced to the work of influential chiropractor and nutritional scientist, Howard F. Loomis. Loomis’ approach focuses on the importance of digestion and, specifically, the assimilation, absorption and elimination systems of the body and their relationship to overall health and wellbeing. The encounter opened Griffin’s mind and made a profound impact on how he approaches healing. Since then, he has successfully used the Loomis System in combination with chiropractic techniques to ease pain and achieve optimal health for patients at his busy Doylestown office.

We have more “bugs” in and on our bodies than cells. For every gene in our own genome, there are about 100 bacterial genes. Studies have shown that the microbes who live with us vastly impact our health—everything from our levels of inflammation to our brain function to our risk for diabetes. These colonies of microbes that live in and on us are called our microbiome.

One of the most common presentations in patients is poor digestion, often in those who have been worked up by many physicians, only to be told that nothing was wrong, or given the diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome or spastic colon. The first step to curing the ailment is finding where the problem is located. Indigestion is a broad term that can imply anything from irritation of mouth, belching or burping, heartburn, bloating, gas, diarrhea or constipation. From a natural point of view, indigestion can be summarized to be caused by three major factors: the inability to digest certain foods, food allergies and food sensitivity.
