This phase is the fun part! This is where we restore the gut microbiome back into balance with friendly bacteria and nutrition. There are so may probiotics out there and I’ve tried almost every kind, but the best and most powerful probiotics I’ve ever used have been the spore-forming (or soil-based) probiotics.
These are the heartiest types that survive harsh stomach acids as well as high temperatures as they are in spore form until they actually reach the right pH environment (which is your colon) where they then can colonize and ‘police’ the microbiome.
They do so much good for the body and immune system and are also found to have antibiotic properties as well.
Our favorite spore strains are from the Bacillus species, specifically Bacillus coagulans and Bacillus subtilis, which are among the most researched and favorite from this group. We have found these to be the most effective for restoring populations of friendly bacteria and for a number of other benefits such as mood and bowel function as well.

To briefly recap, phase 1 of the protocol is all about dissolving biofilm within the gut using specialized enzymes and a starve-off diet. Phase 2 is continuing on the starve-off diet, while removing the bacteria and toxins that were hiding underneath this biofilm, by drinking extra water and lots of fiber. Colonics or enemas are good in this phase as well. Phase 3 is about repairing the lining of the intestinal wall and restoring your gut microbiome with friendly bacteria so that healthy colonies can once again establish themselves where they belong.
The timeline for this program depends on how much overgrowth you are dealing with. It could take anywhere from 2-4 months but generally we find people start feeling better not too long after starting the program, and get progressively better the longer they follow it.
The 2 most important factors in how fast it can work for you is going to be your diet; making sure to avoid sugars, starches and grains, and dissolving the biofilms with the specific biofilm dissolving enzymes that are all contained in a formula that specifically was designed for helping long term health sufferers take back their health. It’s called Restore 3 and it’s the most effective biofilm protocol available. There is nothing else out there that is quite like it.
