Foundational Protocol Step 1: Drainage & Support
Foundational Protocol Step 1: Drainage & Support
Clinical Reference sheet, >click here<
The products in Step 1 deliver key nutrients for optimizing mitochondrial health and establishing healthy drainage pathways — both of which are essential before promoting periods of detoxification.* This also helps make the detox process smoother and encourages sustained energy as your patient moves through the protocol.*
Step 1 consists of BC-ATP, BioToxin Binder, CT-Minerals, and KL Support. BC-ATP assists the body with ATP production, while CT-Minerals enhances mental clarity, nourishes tissues, promotes immunity, and supports cellular repair and detoxification.* KL Support helps maintain kidney and liver function.* BioToxin Binder lends increased support to the body’s natural detoxification processes and the gut microbiome, which in turn supports healthy digestion.*
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.
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.
CellCore’s go-to starter binder. It promotes the body’s natural ability to detoxify and lends increased support to the gut microbiome, which optimizes digestive function and immune health.*
A liquid supplement that provides minerals derived from fulvic acid. Sourced from the soil and decomposed plant life, these naturally occurring minerals are typically easier for the body to digest, absorb, and utilize. This bioavailable formula enhances mental clarity, nourishes tissues, promotes energy production, and supports cellular repair and immunity.*
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.* As an integral part of the body’s cleaning and filtering system, promoting kidney and liver function is essential for healthy drainage and detoxification during the protocol.*
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 through Step 2, until the bottle is finished.
Advanced Tudca and Bowel Mover were previously included in this step. Why were they removed?
Recently, small modifications have been made to our protocols to make them more effective, better tolerated, and highly customizable.
In clinical practice, we noted that Advanced TUDCA could contribute to increased fatigue and other symptoms in some individuals, and was better tolerated in Steps 2, 3, and 4. For this reason, Advanced TUDCA is now included in Step 3 of the Foundational Protocol.
Bowel Mover is now a protocol add-on and not included in any step or phase, taking into consideration that not every person will require additional digestive support.*
Can the supplements in this step cause or worsen symptoms?
Since all of the supplements in this step 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 an individual 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.
Note that if the supplements in this step aren’t well tolerated at a regular or half dose, it’s recommended for the patient to do the Comprehensive Protocol instead of the Foundational Protocol — as this suggests the body’s needs for support are greater
Do any of these supplements interact with medications?
As a general guideline, it’s recommended to take all supplements at least two hours away from prescription medications. You can or should also consult with your Health Care practitioner for further guidance and support.
Do these supplements have to be taken with or without food?
All of the other supplements in this step 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
Is the this protocol safe for children or during pregnancy/breastfeeding?
Yes, children can do the protocol at a lower dose.
While pregnant or breastfeeding, it’s recommended not to promote periods of deeper cleansing. Instead, consider which individual products or kits could support a 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
What's the difference between the foundational protocol and comprehensive protocol?
The Foundational Protocol is a four-month approach to supporting detoxification.* It’s intended for individuals who are looking to periodically promote cleansing for an overall wellness boost.* It’s designed 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.*
The Comprehensive Protocol is an in-depth 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.*
