Metabolic Digestive Health Protocol
A Functional Medicine Support Program for Healing
In today’s fast-paced, future shock world, things like stress, too much sugar, a diet low in dietary fiber, excessive drinking, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) use, and food sensitivities all contribute to Leaky Gut. Leaky Gut Syndrome causes incompletely digested nutrients, toxins, bacteria, and waste to “leak” through the intestines and flood the bloodstream. The foreign substances entering the blood can cause an autoimmune response in the body, including inflammatory and allergic reactions, such as respiratory and digestive issues, headaches, joint pain, skin conditions, and more.
The first step towards detoxification is to remove anything that hinders nutrient absorption and start repairing your gut lining. Once your gut barrier is strong enough, you can begin the detox process. This will ensure that the toxins are not recirculated into your bloodstream. We need to eliminate the invaders that were causing inflammation and other underlying infections and toxins, especially environmental toxins, and bind them to be removed from the body. At the same time, we need to support your two stress hormones (cortisol and insulin), which can contribute to poor health if not managed properly.
Next, we rebuild the microbiome by restoring probiotics, balancing the acidity of the stomach (which is necessary for the adequate absorption of proteins, calcium, B vitamins, and iron), and lastly by supporting the IgG antibodies (which help modulate a normal immune response).
We believe that it is important to eliminate the root cause of intestinal compromise and seal off the affected area. This will enable toxins, viruses, bacteria, and other foreign invaders to be safely cleared and removed without recirculating into the bloodstream due to a leaky gut. The same principle applies when we are rebuilding your intestines and adding good flora and nutrients back into the body. If the intestinal permeability is still increased, it is hard to keep your flora, acid, and nutrients balanced.
We believe that to have success in healing your microbiome you must have the proper help through bioavailable and excellent digestible supplementation. We break this supplemental regimen into 3 phases.

In the initial phase of our Metabolic Gut Health protocol (Heal & Seal), the microbiome needs the ideal protein for those challenged with LGS. We provide that with our Bone Broth Protein or our no-grain plant-based protein for vegetarians.
We also use a combination of herbal formulas and amino acids as a fuel source and a precursor for the growth of cells in the GI mucosal lining and assistance against gut pathogens like candida and parasitic infections.
This will help put an end to the pathogen feeding frenzy that destroys the intestinal lining of the digestive tract and promotes increased permeability.
The second phase of our Metabolic Gut Health Protocol (Clear) includes detoxing and de-stressing. In this phase, we simply do just that, reduce stress, and eliminate toxins.
Toxins can make their way into our bodies over time due to our lifestyle choices from our diet, the environment, and intestinal invaders like Candida. Candida itself can create up to 79 different toxins on their own, so it is necessary to follow Phase One with a proper detox and stress-neutralizing plan. In Phase Two we continue to provide supplemental resources in the form of a complete protein, this can stabilize our blood-sugar levels and allow us to enter a state of deep cleansing and healing. We also use an exceptional formulation of antioxidants, minerals, and nutrients designed to support a healthy response to environmental toxins, especially heavy-metal toxicity. These ingredients are used to support the metabolism in the detoxification of heavy metals, insecticides, herbicides, pesticides, and other hazardous household products we are exposed to daily. We also provide a 100% herbal blend that is great for eliminating anything related to viral or bacterial-causing microorganisms. This formula also helps boost the immune system and regenerate and heal cells.
We believe since the gut lining has been damaged for quite some time and is now sealed, the blood must be cleansed. To do that we use our “Clear” formula to help bind toxins and metals and pull them out of the body safely. The reason many people don’t do well with detox programs is that they lack a sealed gut and a good binding agent to remove foreign substances from the body. Since stress is so chronically elevated in today’s world, it is critically important to take steps to reduce it. If you can bring cortisol back into balance, it’s a big step in the right direction. Bringing your body out of a scarcity-stressed state and pushing it towards a state of high energy and balance is important for your health. We provide a supplement that can help you achieve that. Our synergistic blend of adaptogenic herbs supports a more balanced response to ongoing stress, regulating stress hormones and cortisol production to prevent adrenal fatigue and HPA axis dysfunction. Adaptogens also help modulate cellular sensitivity to stress hormones, overall encouraging a healthy stress response.
The final phase of our Metabolic Gut Health Protocol (Rebuild) includes restoring and Replenishing. The first thing we need to do is call in the “carpenters” to rebuild, which are healthy bacteria. It’s important to note that these healthy bacteria need a healthy intestinal lining to thrive, so it’s an ongoing process to treat a leaky gut and stabilize digestion while maintaining a proper balance of gut bacteria. To achieve this, you’ll need to repopulate your digestive system with the right probiotics, balance acidity levels, and boost your body’s immunity.
We accomplish this by reintroducing a healthy digestive tract by addressing its acidifying factors: balancing hydrochloric acids, providing proteolytic enzymes, and increasing digestive enzymes naturally through herbal bitters. Lastly, we use our specific Immune formula to help modulate a normal immune response by using proline-rich polypeptides also known as PRPs. This helps the immune system by supporting the IgG antibodies, all while providing a revolutionary plant protein blend featuring well-tolerated, vegan protein sources that provide a well-balanced amino acid profile in a high protein formula for complete nutritional support.
