FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions

Can Alo help me with my health concern ?

It's important for you to know that Alo practitioners do not practice medicine. We do not diagnose, treat, or cure diseases like irritable bowel, acid reflux, autoimmune conditions, hormone imbalances, chronic pain, or cancer. We specialize in supporting normal, healthy function. We believe that the body can overcome symptoms when provided with the right nourishment and elimination of stress. It is important that you consult with your medical provider for disease related issues.

What do enzymes do?

Digestive enzymes pre-digest food and support a healthy immune response. 

What if I forget to take my enzymes?

It happens to the best of us! You are human! Of course, we want you to take them because they can't help your body when they stay in the bottle. If you forget to take your "with meals" enzyme at the beginning or during your meal, go ahead and take them after. Give yourself some grace. If you are having a difficult time taking your enzymes as recommended, reach out to us. We can work together to make your schedule manageable. 

How do I take "empty stomach" enzymes?

"Empty stomach" means that there is no food in your stomach while the enzymes are passing through. By taking enzymes on an empty stomach, they are not used up digesting food. They go past digestion to work on other things in the body. Your stomach is empty 2 hours after you eat. The enzymes usually pass through your stomach within 1 hour from taking them, so as a general rule, when you take them on an empty stomach, you should avoid eating for at least 1 hour.

How long will I need to take these supplements?

Here at Alo, we strongly recommend a digestive enzyme with most meals due to the food supply being stripped of its enzymes. When most people begin their wellness journey, there may be 2 to 4 supplements recommended. Jen aims to reduce that as quickly as possible. This is achieved by focusing on what the physical assessment, signs and symptoms, and urine panel (if applicable) indicate. Every body is different. And every individual experiences stress in a different way. The goal is to relieve the stress by supplementing where needed, eliminating stress whenever possible, and making changes to lifestyle, mindset, and nutrition in a sustainable manner. Remember, wellness is not a sprint, it's a marathon. Small changes over time make longer lasting impacts overall.
