When to use the Antiviral Protocol — and how
This product regimen doesn't have to be at all confusing. We've designed The Body Ecology Antiviral Protocol (our food and supplement program) to help support your body's natural healing process as it recovers from a viral infection, no matter how big or how small.
If your health is struggling, you may benefit from using our Antiviral Protocol, which includes our antiviral product package and short-term cleansing diet:
- To remedy any systemic infections.
- To alleviate general health concerns.
- To address the first signs of a viral infection coming on, like a cold.
- To relieve low-grade chronic viral infections, i.e., chickenpox, shingles, mononucleosis, and cold sores.
- To help reestablish the inner ecosystem and aid in healthy digestion.
- To support the body during an elimination diet as you identify food triggers.
- To assist natural detoxification pathways and help cleanse toxins.
- To help manage and support healing in cases of more serious illness.
In our exclusive Antiviral Protocol, created just for people like you who can't seem to overcome the effects of a virus, you'll find these nourishing products:
- Ancient Earth Minerals Liquid - A potent mineral blend in liquid form, designed to help build immunity and detoxify. Take 3 droppers in the morning and 3 droppers in the evening, without regard to meals. Add to your water or tea to sip on throughout the day.
- Digestive Care Multi - A complete digestive support packet to help cleanse, alkalize, and further boost immunity, containing the Probiotic Power Blend, Digestive Enzyme Power Blend, Mineral Power Blend, and Liver Power Cleanse. Take daily with meals to help improve digestion and eliminate toxins.
- Vitality SuperGreen - A tasty, refreshing, and highly nutritious fermented green drink, intended to strengthen immunity and uphold energy levels throughout the day. Take at approximately 7:00 AM and 2:00 PM; can be mixed with pea protein and Stevia. Mix in a shaker cup and take it to sip on the way to work. Vitality SuperGreen can also be enjoyed in the afternoon for a pick-me-up if energy begins to fade.
- Add-on: InnergyBiotic Probiotic Liquid - A tart, crisp, and satisfying living probiotic liquid, used to help aid in daily detoxification, support energy levels and the healthy digestive process, strengthen immunity, and minimize cravings for carbohydrates and sugar. Improving gut health with probiotics may impact the health of the entire body. Take 2-3 ounces with meals (for digestion). Take several ounces anytime throughout the day for a revitalizing pick-me-up and energy boost.
- Add-on: Immune Power Protein Shake - A quick, optional energy-supporting powdered shake that we consider critical during an antiviral cleanse, made from fermented pea protein. Pea protein is generally well-tolerated, and this unique protein is easily digestible and balanced, making it BE-friendly during the cleanse. Pea protein is increasing in popularity as a bonus "catchall" supplement, with potential benefits to aid in weight loss, support heart health, decrease the risk of kidney disease, improve muscle thickness, and balance blood sugar. Place 1 scoop in a shaker cup with water and drink as a meal replacement or as desired throughout the day for a delicious and satisfying drink.
- Add-on: Ocean Plant Extract - An exceptionally rich source of hand-harvested Laminaria seaweed, chock-full of thyroid-supporting minerals, immune-boosting essential sugars, and heavy metal-purging alginates. Because of its low-temperature processing, all the seaweed's valuable nutrients remain and are fully digestible. Clean, clear, and repair the body during and after a viral attack with these super-rich minerals that promote long-term recovery. Take 3 capsules daily on an empty stomach with a large glass of water.
Mary Lou says of our Immune Power Protein Shake, "I have tried many different types of protein shakes and this is by far the best and the best tasting. It's not too sweet and it doesn't have the artificial sweetener taste at all. Very happy with this product!"
The best way to see results from using the Antiviral Protocol
Change isn't something that comes natural to most of us, but this is one time when the Body Ecology Principle of Step-by-Step can apply. Start by making simple changes to your health one day at a time. While admittedly more restrictive than Stage 1 of The Body Ecology Diet, we recommend using our Antiviral Diet to support the initial healing process for a minimum of 4 to 10 days, depending on the severity of your condition. For example, you may see more benefits from using the diet for longer in a case of MS or cancer, compared to a minor herpes outbreak.
We've seen significant health transformations for most people, regardless of diagnosis, who have used our Antiviral Diet and Antiviral Protocol. We've observed, in most cases, that viruses can be an underlying problem that triggers a long list of health concerns.
If you want to see any benefits from using our Antiviral Protocol, all it takes is a daily commitment to your health. That's it — putting one foot in front of the other, sticking to the diet for no less than four days, and using our product regimen until you are confident in your recovery.
For Donna Gates, fermented foods pioneer and creator of The Body Ecology Diet, raising awareness for viral infection is a cause near and dear to her heart. "For many years, I've watched many people suffering from viral infections. Sometimes, they're simple viral infections, like a flu. But most people are suffering from viral infections that remain in the body, and they pop up whenever their immune system is low, and they can be very, very miserable." She explains, "So, this Antiviral Protocol that I'm going to share with you is very effective. You'll see exactly what I'm talking about when you try it. And, if you find that at different times in your life, you need to go back to it, it's something that you'll always have as a tool in your tool chest."
Keep our Antiviral Protocol in your toolkit
This is an important point we can't emphasize enough. Your body, your lifestyle, and your environment are constantly changing. You might find yourself coughing and sneezing as the weather starts to shift or after taking a long flight where you sit next to someone with the flu. We can be exposed to viruses at any time — especially when our immune system is low. That's why our Antiviral Protocol focuses heavily on building immunity, along with daily nutritional support and cleansing.
Getting your immunity back on track is key before a virus runs rampant through your body, causing serious health damage that can't be undone. Our all-in-one Antiviral Protocol makes supporting the body during a viral infection easy and can stop plenty of health problems before they start. This is a kit you're going to want to have available to you during seasonal changes, major life changes, times of stress, and after the diagnosis of an illness.
If you're sick of getting or being sick, our Antiviral Protocol can help. Remember, the immune system is fully capable of identifying and wiping out foreign invaders — as long as we keep it healthy and strong.
