Protocol #1 - Fat Burning and Weight Loss

Many obstacles to fat burning have nothing to do with what you eat or how much you exercise. Instead, they involve things like nutritional imbalances, chronic inflammation, metabolic challenges, leaky gut, changes in your microbiome, environmental toxins and hormonal irregularities.

Numerous factors contribute to excess fat but by addressing the main disruptors you can ignite your fat burning capacity. One huge but often overlooked reason for resistance with weight loss and fat burning involves hormonal imbalances. The main hormone that causes weight gain, inflammation and chronic disease is excess insulin. Any plan to amplify fat burning must include an insulin and hormone regulator.

This approach uses natural nutritional substances that help regulate insulin so you can shift your body from fat storage mode to fat burning mode. Other hormones also affect your weight and health. The main hormonal disruptors are: thyroid, cortisol and sex hormones, such as estrogens or testosterone.

Cortisol & Stress

When we’re stressed, the stress hormone cortisol is chronically elevated, and this turns our bodies into fat storing machines. You actually can think yourself fat or think yourself thin, and science proves it. Stressful thoughts activate metabolic pathways that cause weight gain and insulin resistance. This is because elevated cortisol levels increase the activity of the major fat storing enzyme – lipoprotein lipase (LPL).

Remember, stress is a response to stimulus that makes you feel threatened and is not always provoked by real circumstances. Often it is simply the perception that you are being attacked. Most stress isn’t real. A worry, thought, or fear projected into the future of what might go wrong, or dwelling on the past can all become physical stressors.

Regardless whether stress is real or imagined, it stimulates cortisol production.
Cortisol also makes the body more insulin resistant. This means the body will need to release more insulin to get the job done. This can lead to greater fat storage, and a slowed release of fat will also be realized.

Nascent Iodine


One of the most noticeable signs of an iodine deficiency is unexpected weight gain. When a person has a healthy metabolism, they burn calories to give them their energy. A lack of thyroid hormones slows down your metabolism.


Methylene blue (MB) decreases cortisol and estrogen if you are estrogen dominant. MB effectively neutralizes all poisons and helps reduce inflammation. It is astounding as an antidepressant and is both neuroprotective and regenerative. It helps convert methemoglobin into an oxygen-carrying type of hemoglobin. That then helps your blood give your cells the oxygen they need to create energy.

Super AGC

Curcumin has also shown great promise in cortisol reduction. Curcumin is the main bioactive compound in the spice turmeric and is a top-notch brain supplement beneficial for anxiety, depression and neurodegenerative diseases.  

Belly Bugz

Prebiotics are foods that contain insoluble fibers that “good” intestinal bacteria feed on. Interestingly, the ingestion of prebiotic fibers suppresses the stress response and reduces cortisol.  

Belly fat, which is also known as visceral fat, lies deep inside the body coating vital organs. People with less visceral (belly) fat tend to have fewer long-term health conditions related to heart, pancreas and hormone health. In laboratory studies, pre and probiotics have been shown to help reduce belly fat.

Research has shown that subjects who are of normal weight tend to have different gut bacteria compared to those who are categorised as either overweight or obese. Maintaining a normal healthy weight is demonstrably related to a healthy microbiome.

More research is needed, but probiotics may also fight obesity in other ways:

Aid the release of the satiety hormone: Raised levels of this hormone may help the body burn both calories and fat.

Increase specific proteins: Some of which may contribute to reduced fat storage.

Reduce inflammation: many chronic (long-term) conditions are associated with inflammation. By improving gut health, probiotics may reduce systemic inflammation protecting against obesity and other conditions.

Reduce absorption of calories: some probiotics may do this by reducing the amount of fat absorbed from the intestines.

Daily Protocol

1.Nascent Iodine: Take on an empty stomach 30 minutes before breakfast. Keep in mind that vitamin C will oxidise iodine rendering it less useful. Any form of vitamin C needs to be taken 90 minutes away from iodine.

Directions: 3 - 10 drops in 30 ml of water swirl in mouth then swallow, followed by more water.

2. BluZone:  This can be taken anytime; we find one dose in the morning completely adequate. MB is water-soluble so you don’t need to take it with a meal, or healthy fat like some nootropics. Simply add the drops to water or juice. 

There are two protocols for using BluZone. Our recommendation is to start with a low dose (Daily Maintenance) and see how you react. Allow a week on the daily maintenance before engaging the Loading Protocol.  

Directions: Shake before each use. Add drops to water or juice 

Daily Maintenance Protocol:  1 drop for every 4kg of body weight (bodyweight divided by 4)

Loading Protocol:1 drop for every 2kg of body weight for 2 weeks then drop back to the daily maintenance. (Bodyweight divided by 2)

When your urine turns a beautiful ocean blue, you have entered the BluZone!

3. Belly Bugz Direction:  Add ¼ tsp to water, juice or sprinkled on food twice daily, morning and night.  

4. Super AGC:  Taking small amounts over the course of the day is more effective that taking a high amount all at once. Drinking turmeric tea or turmeric water prevents fat accumulation and has very positive implications on the process of weight loss.  

Find effective ways to alleviate your stress and lower cortisol, a walk, meditation, deep breathing – whatever it takes. The importance of living your joy (doing what makes you feel happy) will restore enthusiasm for life and automatically reduce stress. Notice how people who are happy and content can eat whatever they like without weight gain? Exercise helps balance hormones, reducing estrogen and increasing testosterone, which helps you lose fat and build muscle. Select types of exercise that fit your lifestyle and that you enjoy.
