The 5 PHASE Treatment Protocol:
A master strategy for any health challenge that is refined for your individual situation. It can be done in sequential steps, or with several phases done at the same time, or whole parts can be skipped. We determine the path for you based on clinical testing and health history.
To read more about each Phase in greater detail, scroll below:
Phase 1: Start Up / Alkalize Phase
This takes place while we wait for any tests you may need (inner ecology, food allergy, toxic metals, etc). During that 3-5 week period you will learn the scientific basis and the practical applications for the amazing PH miracle acid-alkaline balance as well as get some diet support and begin some supplements to jump start the healing process. The importance of this Phase as you begin this serious wellness program can not be overstated. Without this critical step, your chances of lasting recovery are diminished. With it, your success is almost certain.
Phase 2: Replace
The Replace Phase, which may be part of your Start Up, refers to these three basic things:
- The Replacement of deficient micro-nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids.
- The Replacement of Enzymes and other digestive factors
lacking or limited in the GI (gastro-intestinal) environment. Enzymes
such as pepsin, proteases, lipases, and saccharides, as well as
hydrochloric acid (HCl) are all necessary for proper digestion and
nutrient absorption. Furthermore, HCl has been shown to effectively kill
harmful organisms in the GI tract which results in the decreased
likelihood and severity of certain bacterial and parasitic intestinal
- The Replacement of healthy macro-nutrient foods (protein, carbs, oils) which help, not hurt the body.
Phase 3: Reinoculate Phase
This refers to the process of reintroducing prebiotics, probiotics and key bowel immune nutrients to create a healthy balance of desirable microflora in the GI tract. Probiotics include "friendly" bacteria like various species of Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium. Probiotics synthesize various vitamins, assist with intestinal cell growth and function, prevent colonization of harmful bacteria and help break down toxins. Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients that selectively stimulate the growth of friendly flora and discourage pathogenic bacteria. They include fructooligosaccharides (FOS), specific fibers, arabinogalactans, lacto-ferron, lacto-peroxidase and immunoglobulins (IgGs). There are many types of pre and probiotics. It can be very confusing which is why we prefer to testing to discover exactly what your body needs. (1)
Phase 4: Regenerate and Repair Phase
Refers to providing support for the healing and growth of the GI
mucosa (the lining of your intestinal tract). Candida infestation
usually results in a condition called “leaky gut” which results in
food allergies, fatigue and irritable bowel. Acidic foods may
re-injure or irritate the mucosa. Specific nutritional support is
crucial for reversing GI dysfunction and eliminating the chronic
diseases associated with it. Important nutrients for support of GI
regeneration include vitamins and related carotenoids for their
antioxidant effects and select amino acids. You may do a comprehensive Liver
Repair as well as an Intestinal or leaky gut Repair. The soothing alkalizing diet is particularly
helpful for the healing and regeneration of the GI tract. Your diet is determined by testing and with the help of a diet Health Coach.
Phase 5: Remove Phase
This Phase focuses on eliminating harmful bacteria, viruses, yeast, fungi and parasites from the GI tract. This is where you actually get rid of the bugs. It is done in two ways. First, by changing the inner ecology with the previous steps such as on-going alkalizing and "elimination" diet (since foods to which you are intolerant or allergic can worsen GI dysfunction and stimulate negative immune and inflammatory responses). Next, the actual Remove Phase begins in earnest with multiple herbal botanicals which have been carefully selected based upon your stool sensitivity test. (2) This Phase lasts in a cycle between 4-12 weeks and may have to be repeated depending on the severity. Most importantly, this Phase is done only after proper preparation of the bowel, immune system and liver (usually 4-6 weeks of prior Replace and Repair Phases). Without these preparatory phases, the problem could worsen and return.

Large communities of
microorganisms, collectively termed the microbiome, inhabit our body
surfaces... the microbiome is essential for proper functioning of our immune
system, including the defense against fungi.,,(which) are important players of
the microbiome, either as a cofactor in disease or as potential pathogens. In
review, we describe the role of the bacterial
microbiome in antifungal host defense. On the one hand, bacteria provide
colonization resistance to fungi, inhibit
Candida virulence by preventing yeast-hyphal transition
and contribute to epithelial integrity, all factors are important for the
pathogenesis of invasive fungal disease. On the other hand, several bacterial
species modulate mucosal (antifungal) immune responses... perturbation of the
healthy microbiome should be avoided and microbiome manipulation and
interventions based on bacteria-derived pathways involved in immunomodulation
are attractive options for modulating antifungal host defense.

Infections caused by
Candida species have been increased dramatically worldwide due to the increase
in immunocompromised patients. For the prevention and cure of candidiasis,
several strategies have been adopted at clinical level. Candida infected patients
are commonly treated with a variety of antifungal drugs such as fluconazole,
amphotericin B, nystatin, and flucytosine...however
prolonged use of these drugs many fungal
pathogens become resistant
and antifungal therapy suffers. In this
regard, combination of two or more antifungal drugs is thought to be an
alternative to counter the rising drug resistance. Also, the synthetic drugs
have side effects
and biomedicines like antibodies and polysaccharide-peptide conjugates
could be better alternatives and safe options to prevent and cure the diseases. PMID:24977092 [PubMed]PMCID: PMC4062852
