Phase 4A: Systemic Detox Support
Phase 4A promotes cleansing within and beyond the gut.* It consists of BC-ATP, CT-Biotic, HM-ET Binder, KL Support, and Para 4.
Para 4 helps maintain a balanced gut microbiome with herbs used traditionally to support digestive function and immunity, including celery seed, cordyceps, holy basil, and horse tail.*
CT-Biotic offers 11 spore-forming and non-spore-forming bacterial strains for increased digestive and detoxification support.* HM-ET Binder steps in to promote the body’s natural ability to detoxify in the cells and tissues, while encouraging cellular repair throughout these processes.*
Patients will continue to take BC-ATP and KL Support in this phase to optimize their mitochondrial health and energy levels, as well as support healthy drainage pathways.*
Note: After completing Phase 4A, patients will move into Phase 4B, which continues to promote systemic detoxification but without Para 4.* This is because Para 4 is a more potent formula and should only be taken for two months at a time.
Formulated with Carbon Technology
Carbon Technology is a proprietary blend of fulvic acids and polysaccharides that support cellular repair and the body’s natural ability to detoxify.* With a low pH, Carbon Technology also helps protect ingredients from being digested by stomach acid, so that they remain intact as they enter the desired location in the body.
All of our supplements are formulated with Carbon Technology, with the exception of Para 1, Para 3, and the IS-line.
BC-ATP: The highly charged organic acids support metabolism and the ATP cycle in being at peak efficiency.* These carbons also assist in the body’s natural detoxification processes and contribute to a balanced gut microbiome.* In clinical practice, BC-ATP is generally well-tolerated by sensitive individuals and may help improve protocol tolerance.
KL SUPPORT: Combines herbs and nutrients traditionally used to support kidney and liver health, including beetroot, collinsonia (stoneroot), gynostemma, marshmallow root, milk thistle seed, NAC, and parsley leaf.*
HM-ET BINDER: A later-stage binder, HM-ET Binder promotes the body’s natural ability to detoxify in the cells and tissues.* It also offers increased support to cellular repair, energy production, immunity, and mitochondrial health, as well as helps protect against life’s everyday stressors.*
PARA 4: A blend of 11 potent herbs known for supporting digestion, detoxification, and immunity, including celery seed, cordyceps, holy basil, horse tail, noni root, and sarsaparilla.*
CT-BIOTIC: A blend of spore-forming and non-spore-forming bacteria. It includes 11 bacterial strains that are essential for supporting detoxification, digestive function, and immunity.*
Note: For those who are sensitive, it’s recommended to introduce one product at a time in the order listed above on the dosing chart.
Continue taking CT-Minerals from Phase 3 during this phase, until the bottle is finished.
1. Advanced TUDCA, CT-Iodine, IFC, MitoATP, and ViRadChem Binder were previously included in this phase. Why were they removed?
Recently, small modifications have been made to our protocols to make them more effective, better tolerated, and highly customizable.
With the addition of Para 4 to the protocol, we split Phase 4 into two separate phases: Phase 4A and Phase 4B, each lasting a standard of two months.
This is because Para 4 is important for patients to take in this phase to optimize their gut health but is only recommended to take for a maximum of 60 days at a time.* Advanced TUDCA replaces Para 4 in Phase 4B. Both components of Phase 4 achieve the same goal, which is to promote systemic detoxification.*
CT-Iodine is included in Phase 4B but not Phase 4A.
MitoATP has been discontinued and replaced in the protocols with BC-ATP, our new stronger mitochondrial support supplement (that’s also typically better tolerated).*
IFC is now a protocol add-on and not included in any step or phase, taking into consideration that not every patient will require additional system balance support.
2. Can the supplements in Phase 4A cause or worsen existing symptoms?
Since all of the supplements in this phase promote the body’s natural detoxification processes, it’s possible to experience mild detox symptoms, such as bloating, fatigue, constipation, headaches, or gas.* This will depend on an individual’s toxic load and varies from person to person.
If a patient experiences excess reactions, we recommend introducing one supplement at a time (and starting with a half dose) in the order listed on the dosing chart.
3. Do any of the supplements interact with medication?
Always consult a licensed healthcare practitioner when introducing a new supplement. As a general guideline, it’s recommended to take all supplements at least two hours away from prescription medications.
4. Do the supplements have to be taken with food, or can they be taken without?
All of the other supplements in this phase are recommended to take between meals for maximum potency. However, if patients are sensitive to any of the ingredients, they can take them with meals.
5. Is the protocol safe for children or during pregnancy/breastfeeding?
Yes, children can do the protocol.
While pregnant or breastfeeding, it’s recommended not to promote periods of deeper cleansing. Instead, consider which individual products or kits could support the person’s needs during these life stages.
For example, BC-ATP and CT-Minerals are gentle formulas that are typically well-tolerated and can be taken individually (outside of the protocol) while pregnant or breastfeeding.
For children and women during pregnancy/breastfeeding, we recommend working with a healthcare practitioner closely while taking products.
6. What’s the difference between the Comprehensive Protocol and the Foundational Protocol?
The Comprehensive Protocol is an intensive approach to supporting detoxification, intended for those who are looking to address their health at the root level and require increased immune and gut support.* Completing the protocol over a prolonged period (9+ months) provides the body with sufficient time (and nutrients) to promote system balance through detoxification.*
The Foundational Protocol is a shorter, four-month approach to supporting detoxification.* It’s intended for individuals who are looking to periodically promote cleansing for an overall wellness boost.* It also helps to balance the gut microbiome, increase energy levels, and optimize digestive and immune health — but is not as extensive as the Comprehensive Protocol, which covers more specific areas of health.*
7. Why are there two components to Phase 4 (Phase 4A and Phase 4B)?
To accommodate the appropriate timeline and dosing for Para 4, which should only be taken for a maximum of two months at a time. This is why Para 4 is included in Phase 4A for two months, and removed from Phase 4B. Both components of Phase 4 achieve the same goal, which is to promote systemic detoxification.*
