Protocol #1 - Fat Burning and Weight Loss
Cortisol & Stress
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.
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.
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.
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.
