Gut dysfunction can be improved in a short period of time. Dr. Robert Rakowski, a brilliant clinician and healer, developed this powerful protocol to help his patients restore their gut function in just 10 days. And I must tell you that it certainly does heal the gut in a very short period of time!

I have seen this program help individuals with long-term gut problems. Individuals who have had diarrhea for 5 years regain normal bowel movements. Individuals with 40 years of constipation begin to enjoy the relief that comes from regular, daily bowel movements. I have even seen it help those with crippling anxiety, hormone imbalance, and chronic fatigue and pain syndromes!

We just can’t get away from the fact that healing the gut allows the body to experience greater health and well-being. And gut repair doesn’t have to take months. This 10-day gut program uses high, therapeutic dosages of safe, powerful ingredients to change the gut environment quickly.

Recommended Diet for 10-day Gut Repair:

Eat only lean, organic meat and organic vegetables for 10 days. During this 10 day program, eat MONO MEALS by eating only one food at a time. That means each time you eat, you are only eating one type of food. For example, you eat only eggs for breakfast, green beans for a mid-morning snack, grass-fed steak for lunch, asparagus for an afternoon snack, and grilled salmon for dinner. Do this for the entire 10 days. Don’t be surprised if you experience some healthy weight loss on this program also!

NOTE: Avoid starches, fruit, sugar, breads, cereals, etc. as these foods are fuel for the bacteria/fungi/parasites you are trying to eliminate from your body.

Recommended Supplement Protocol for the First 10 Days:

SpectraZyme® Metagest® – (need one 270 tablet bottle) HCl stomach acid that will support the digestion and break down of your food. Take this product right at the end of the meal. To find out what dose is best for you, please see the HCl stomach acid instructions page.†

NOTE: If pain or discomfort occurs when taking Metagest, it indicates inflammation of the lining of the stomach and esophagus.  To heal the stomach and esophagus, use the Gastritis Repair Protocol below for at least 4 weeks before trying to reintroduce the Metagest.

SpectraZyme® Pan 9x ES (formerly Azeo-Pangen Extra Strength) – (need one 90 tablet bottle) pancreatic enzymes that will help you break down your food. Take 2 five minutes before meals/shakes/snacks. Will improve digestion and absorption of nutrients.†

Acute Care – 2 capsules 3x day w/ food (need two 30 capsule bottles). S. boulardii is a species of bacteria that helps remove toxic yeast and fungus from sticking to the walls of the GI tract. Once removed from the wall, your body can easily eliminate the pathogen in the stool.†

UltraFlora IB – 1 capsule 3x day away from food (need one 30 capsule bottle). High dose probiotic 60 billion per serving to reinnoculate the colon and improve digestion.†

Candibactin AR – 2 capsules 3x day w/ food (need one 60 capsule bottle). Aromatic oils which work as well as gold standard antiobiotics at killing bad bugs, yet has no negative side effect. Cleanses the bowel of bacteria/viruses/yeast/parasites.†

Candibactin BR – 3 tablets 3x day w/ food (need one 90 tablet bottle). Oils of berberine which work also as a cleanse for the GI tract killing more bacteria/viruses/yeast/parasites.†

Vitamin D3 10000 w/ K2 – one capsule per day with food (need one 120 capsule bottle).†

L-Glutamine – 20 grams 5x day mixed into water (need one 1000 gram container). Main fuel source and nutrient source for the cells which line our GI tract. Helps to seal a leaky gut by allowing the epithelial cells to grow faster and healthier, reducing inflammation and increasing glutathione. (this supplement available through Amazon).†

Recommended Diet and Supplement Protocol for the After the 10 Days:

I recommend that my patients with gut dysbiosis issues use the nutrition listed above for 10 days. After the 10 days has been completed, I also recommend a follow-through period for at least 4 weeks. There is no need to continue eating in a MONO MEAL fashion and food may now be combined to your liking.

During the second 4 week period continue to take the exact supplements above, only reduce the in the following manner:

reduce the Candibactin AR to 1 3x day with food

reduce the Candibactin BR to 2 2x day with food

reduce the L-Glutamine powder to 30 grams per day.

reduce the Acute Care to 1 3x day with food.

reduce the UltraFlora IB to 1 1x day away from food.

Continue to take the Spectrazyme Pan 9X ES, Spectrazyme Metagest, and D3 10,000 w/ K2.



This protocol is for those individuals who have active gastritis, who cannot tolerate stomach acid supplements, or who are healing from an H.Pylori infection.  The below protocol should be taken for at least 4 weeks.  After one month the dosages may be reduced and the supplements can be taken long term for ongoing support.

Glutagenics –  mix 1 serving into water every 2 hours or after each meal, which ever comes first.  Powerful support that will help reduce inflammation of the upper GI tract.  Acts as a calming salve to relieve burning pain associated with gastritis and inflammation of the mucosa.†

Endefen – 1 serving 2x day with or without meals.  Provides key nutrients to support the health of the esophageal and stomach lining.†

Zinlori 75 – 2 tablets 2x per day away from food.  Zinc-carnosine will enhance the repair of the stomach lining; used in Japan for decades to repair gastric mucosa after antibiotic therapy.†
