Understanding the Supplements
The superior quality of the Gut Thrive formulas is key to our strategy and to your success as you heal your gut. These videos help you understand the core foundational supplements, but it's important to note that you will follow your specific Gut Thrive Plan Supplement Protocol as you go through the program. Additionally, we have included a complete ingredient list of your supplements in the Inside Your Supplement Kit handout so you know exactly what is in each and every formula.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We are in the process of making the following updates to our supplement kits:
- Probiotic Colonizer 50 will replace ABC when this product runs out of stock in the store
- Probiotic Colonizer 100 will replace MBC
- Organ Harmony will replace Desiccated Liver
Phase 1 of the Supplements
In your Gut Thrive Plan Supplement Protocol, you will find a list of the Step 1 supplements for the program. You will also see Supplement Steps listed in the Program Timeline.
These supplements will help prepare your body for Step 2 - The Pathogen Purge by integrating specific support for your liver, gallbladder, pancreas, stomach, and intestines. Step 1 integrates digestive enzymes that assist with digestion, allowing the body to process food more efficiently and with less work. We are also cleaning up old molecules of inflammation by getting into the intestinal pockets as well as using proteolytic enzymes to target inflammation that is present outside of the GI tract.
In Step 1, we are working towards improved elimination through supporting the body with Triphala. This carefully crafted process will lower the set point of inflammation both inside and outside of the digestive system.
Phase 2 and 3 of the Supplements
In Step 2 of your Supplement Protocol (The Pathogen Purge), we are interrupting the way the pathogens in your body communicate so they can no longer share their genetic code and replicate. This is a gentle, yet effective approach for ridding pathogens from your body. The power is in both the strategy and the brevity of the purge. It is a 3-week purge plus a Transition Week (4th week) where we take less of the anti-pathogenic supplements as we transition out of this Step.
In Step 2 of your Supplement Protocol, we dismantle biofilms with Diatomaceous Earth and then use Bentonite Clay to bind to the pathogens, heavy metals and toxins and use Triphala (and LOTS of water) to move them out of your body. Then, we employ botanicals and herbs to address the pathogens that remain so they may access deep layers of intestinal tissue. We also support your methylation (detoxification) process to keep you more comfortable during the elimination.
In Step 3 of your Supplement Protocol, we are re-seeding your gut with good bacteria. We did the weeding in Step 2 and now it's time to plant seeds! We also use formulas to "heal and seal" the gut which decrease intestinal permeability by rebuilding your mucosal lining.
