The microbiome is a complex ecosystem that lives inside of us. Just like a natural ecosystem, biodiversity is key. In a healthy gut ecosystem, thousands of strains of bacteria and fungi interact to help break down food and extract energy for the body. But if one species begins to overpower the others, it can be difficult to rebalance the gut and establish order. Stress levels, genetics, diet, and exposure to toxins all provide opportunities for harmful and unwanted microbes that can alter your microbiome balance.
Once this has happened, it can feel impossible to get back on track. Trying to fix your internal ecosystem overnight or without expert help can only making things more confusing. The CBO Protocol is a carefully formulated protocol that works to disrupt biofilms, reduce unwanted microbes, and slowly rebalance and replenish beneficial microbes. Using the best of modern science and the benefits of Ayurvedic herbs, the CBO Protocol has helped thousands of people regain control over their digestion, gut health and bodies.
Good health starts in the gut. Over 100 trillion microbes help the body to digest, break down, and extract energy from food. There are countless species of bacteria and fungus that comprise the microbiome. Certain "bad" microbes prefer sugar and high carbohydrate diets. Once fed diets high in carbohydrates, sugar, and alcohol, these "bad" microbes can begin to cause problems by releasing metabolites into the body that can trigger an immune response. Rebalancing the microbiome is a complex and often difficult process for most people. Many people attempt countless different probiotics, kombucha, fermented foods, and other remedies to no avail.
The CBO protocol is designed to slowly and gradually alter the balance of these ecosystems, by first creating a hospitable environment in which these microbes can flourish. Just as restoring ecosystems in the wild cannot be accomplished by simply releasing animals into habitats where they once thrived, the CBO protocol takes a holistic approach to rebalancing the gut, in three key steps.
Maintaining a healthy gut requires far more than just eating right. Factors ranging from stress and genetics can impact gut health. Healthy Belly utilizes botanical extracts to support gut barrier integrity, promotes microfloral balance, and soothes common gastrointestinal discomforts helping to create a more balanced microbiome.
Combining distilled botanical extracts and a range of B-Vitamins, Gut Bacterial Support provides targeted ingredients designed to create an environment inhospitable to unwanted bacteria while fostering a space for beneficial microbial strains to grow.
Selecting the right probiotic for you can a complicated and tedious task. While most probiotics only provide one or two strains, the Clean Gut Probiotic provides nine strains of probiotic organisms (bacteria and beneficial fungus) to help rebalance your gut. The Clean Gut Probiotic utilizes well-researched organisms that work in symbiosis with each other and the natural strains of the gut.
Candida Complex is the powerful complex used to alter the internal gut environment during the CBO Protocol. Working in conjunction with other synergistic supplements, Candida Complex incorporates powerful botanicals as well as well-studied compounds known to alter gut microbial balance, to promote a healthier gut.
Biofilms are colonies of bacteria that pose many challenges to immunity and digestion. FloraFilm is a natural blend of enzymes that helps disrupt and dissolve these biofilms of unwanted bacteria and fungus to aid digestion and improve gut health.
Most probiotics provide bacteria while overlooking other beneficial microbes. In order to balance gut microbe populations, a greater diversity of species is needed. Saccharomyces Boulardii is a probiotic yeast that promotes a healthy gut microbial balance, strengthens the protective function of the gut barrier, aids digestion, and enhances overall immunity.
Biofilms are formed by colonies of bacteria and fungus, much like dental plaque. These thin layers of lipids adhere to each other and to the gut lining. Unwanted strains of bacteria and fungus can take harbor and evade natural elimination by the immune system by hiding in a biofilm. BioFilm Disruptor delivers a targeted set of enzymes formulated to dissolve and break up biofilms, without disrupting regular gut function.
Microbial Balance is a blend of important minerals, herbal supplements, and botanical extracts that support a healthy balance of beneficial microbes in the gut. This specific formulation combines ingredients that have been used for generations to promote microbial balance, without any harsh ingredients that may cause digestive distress.
I am only 2 weeks into the 12 week protocol so I can only speak to what I have done so far. The protocol is easy to follow and the foods available to eat on the sensitive gut guide more than enough to keep me full and satisfied. Following the protocol is has actually decreased the amount of time I spend in the kitchen. I have not experienced any noticable detox symptoms but I did start the diet a week and a half before I started with the supplements so that may have helped. The dosing schedule for the supplements is very convenient for me and shockingly I haven't missed any pills yet. Thus far I am very impressed.
Just get this protocol, you will not be disappointed. I started this for an issue with chronic daily hives, and IT WORKED! There were so many other benefits to this protocol. Saw a major difference after the first month. No more bloating, no stomach pains, my digestion is amazing and clockwork now. Not sure if this is related, but my sleep has improved as well, with my deep sleep going from 45-60min to 75-90min.
Tip - I made myself little laminated cards to keep in my purse, for what to take each day and when, one per month, so I could track better and not miss doses.
Looking forward to starting!
I completed the CBO protocol once in 2018 with good results although I was still experiencing bloating. Purchased the Big 5 this year & after consulting with my health coach, I'm giving it another try but adding the citricidal drops to the protocol. Hoping to have even better results the 2nd time around!
I'm in my first week of the protocol after I had completed the detox. I am glad to finally know what is going on with me. This first week is tough. I have headaches, stomach aches and do not feel great at all. I know my body is releasing what it needs to and rebalancing. I'm keeping that in mind as I do not feel great. I am relieved to finally have an understanding of what's going on with me and a plan to rebalance my body and get back to full health. I am so thankful for this and my health coach.
