What is

The Biome Protocol?

The Biome Protocol

The Biome Protocol is a gut-healing program designed for those who have struggled to lose weight and keep it off long-term. It is also useful for those who are happy with their weight but suffer from various symptoms related to poor gut health and inflammation.

 

Losing fat and maintaining a new weight long-term is a complex process and it requires a multifactorial approach. The body must be healthy before it can effectively release stored fat, and it must be balanced in order to maintain a new lower weight long-term. It is now known that a healthy gut microbiota is the foundation of a healthy body. By addressing and managing gut health, it is possible to manage the consequences of an unhealthy gut, such as chronic inflammation, nutrient deficiencies, mitochondrial dysfunction, impaired detoxification and altered production of appetite-regulating hormones and neurotransmitters. When these factors are managed, the body is able to release stored fat and effortlessly maintain a new healthy weight long-term.

Disruptions in the gut microbiota or gut wall can cause a range of symptoms, some of which appear completely unrelated to the gut.  We now know that the gut microbiota influences every system in the body, which is why abnormalities in the gut can present with varied symptoms such as:

  •     Bloating, indigestion, abdominal cramps

  •     Fatigue

  •     Headaches

  •     Fluid retention

  •     Sensitivity to carbohydrates

  •     Insomnia

  •     Mood swings

  •     Cravings

  •     Memory loss or brain fog

  •     Joint pain or stiffness

  •     Hair loss

  •     Weight gain

  •     Resistance to weight loss

And many more...

The Biome Protocol focuses on restoring the gut microbiota in order to address and manage the key physiological factors that influence weight loss and long-term weight management. These factors include:

 

  • Gut health and immune function.

  • Nutrient status and mitochondrial function.

  • Detoxification pathways.

  • Appetite-regulating hormones and neurotransmitters

  • Brain health.

Nutrients for managing the key factors

 

The Biome Protocol includes three nutrient formulations that are added to a smoothie once a day and provide the nutrients required to serve the above functions.  These formulas contain nutrients in pure form, without the addition of any excipients.  Many nutrient formulas contain excipients, such as sweeteners, bulking agents or fillers, that may improve taste and stability but can contribute to dysbiosis, leaky gut and inflammation,  thereby negating the benefits of the nutrients.   

 

 

The Biome Protocol uses diet and nutrient formulations to address the above factors in two stages.

Stage 1 is two weeks in duration and focuses on restoring gut health, improving gut microbial composition and reducing inflammation. 

 

Stage 2 is four weeks in duration and focuses on replenishing nutrients, improving mitochondrial function and detoxification reactions and balancing appetite-regulating hormones and neurotransmitters. 

 

 

 

Program Inclusions

 

The program includes:

 

  1. The Biome Protocol Patient Manual.  This manual contains:

 

  • A comprehensive guide providing essential information about the five key factors involved in weight management.

  • Meal plans that detail macronutrient serving sizes and meal timing for Stage 1 and Stage 2 

  • Advice on how to follow the protocol without losing weight (for those who are wanting to maintain their current weight).

  • An Allowed Food list and Forbidden Food list.

  • Information on specific foods that help support a healthy microbiome.

  • A detailed maintenance plan that includes tips on how to work out your ideal carbohydrate intake and identify food intolerances.

  • Guidelines on how to use intermittent fasting for health or continued weight loss on completion of the protocol.

  • Lifestyle recommendations.

  • A Shopping List

  • 12-minute Exercise Plan that combines cardiovascular and resistance exercises.

  • 10-minute Interval Training Plan. 

  • Tasty and healthy recipes for all meals and snacks.

  • Modifications for specific gut, inflammatory/immune, hormonal, metabolic or neurological conditions.

  2. Supplements:

 

  • The Bowel Formula, a gut-healing formulation  that is commenced in Stage 1.  It contains a blend of prebiotics, amino acids and antioxidants that have been shown to improve the diversity of the gut microbiota, restore integrity of the gut wall and reduce inflammation. This helps prepare the body for Stage 2.

  • The Nutrient Formula, a nutrient formulation that is added in Stage 2.  It contains a range vitamins, minerals and amino acids to support mitochondrial function and detoxification in the gut and liver.  It also helps balance appetite-regulating hormones and assist with the production of neurotransmitters. 

  • The Detox Formula, a formulation that is commenced in Stage 2.  It contains a range of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to assist with the processing, neutralisation and elimination of toxins from the body.  It also helps reduce cravings and improve brain health.

  • Enbiotic, a capsule containing probiotics and digestive enzymes commenced in Stage 2 to further assist with improving gut health.

 

The Bowel, Nutrient and Detox formulas are vegan and do not contain any excipients, toxins or molecules that could potentially cause inflammation such as fillers, gluten, sugar, sweeteners, additives, colours, dairy or lactose.

 

 

Expected Results

It is expected that you will lose between four to eight kilos during the 6-week program. In this time the body will undergo  changes to enable either continued weight loss or long-term maintenance of your new weight on completion of the protocol.

 

As The Biome Protocol aims to restore physiological stability, you may also expect:

 

  • Improved digestion and reduced bloating 

  • Reduced fluid retention

  • Resolution of cravings 

  • A stable appetite

  • Increased energy levels

  • Mood stability

  • Restful sleep

  • Stronger immune function with less infections and improved healing

  • Reduced symptoms of anxiety or depression

  • Improvements in memory and concentration

  • Improvement in the tone and texture of your skin

  • An increased sense of well-being

  • Development of long-term healthy habits

     

 

Weight management requires long-term commitment to health. As we age our bodies and hormones change, and so do our dietary and exercise needs. Adapting your diet and lifestyle according to your needs is essential for long-term success.

 

The Biome Protocol is based on dietary and nutrient recommendations that have been shown to restore balance to the body. It will also provide you with information that will help you identify and adapt to your body’s changing needs.    

 

Australian Custom Pharmaceuticals compounds the nutrients formulations, making the The Biome Protocol available to patients at selected clinics across Australia.
