316: BioActive Carbon
Dr. Jay Davidson and Ashley James
BioActive carbon has proven to help repair the body and restore it to optimal health. Recognizing the need to address different health issues, Microbe Formulas have produced natural supplements as a protocol for better health. The co-founder, Dr. Jay Davidson is a returning guest who has extensively shared ways on how to detox parasites in a previous episode.
In teaching us the entire protocol for better health, Dr. Jay Davidson initially explains that phase one is focused on drainage. It is also to prepare the body and minimize symptoms as you move forward.
“As we get more people to follow this protocol, we realize that there are some added things that we needed in here. Primarily the drainage support is what changes everything,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. “When we're looking at drainage and how to repair the body, you want to look at what are all the drainage pathways.”
Dr. Jay Davidson says that ideally, two or more bowel movements a day is needed to heal the body. Because when you start moving into supporting the immune system, going after pathogens, detoxing and pulling the chemicals out, it's a lot easier for those pathways to get clogged up. As soon as those pathways get clogged up, that's when symptoms happen.
“Phase one we look at supporting the intestinal tract, liver bile duct, and kidneys. If the colon backs up, it backs everything up. If the liver bile duct is backed up, then it backs up what's above that,” Dr. Jay Davidson explains. “What's above that is the lymphatic system, and then we look at organs and tissues. And one of the important organs is the brain.”
Listening To Symptoms
I have always stressed in past episodes that it is vital to listen to our body. Symptoms are there to give clues on what is going in. Dr. Jay Davidson says that for example, headaches, brain fog, cognitive type issues, and insomnia can signify that something is amiss.
“We know there's usually something backed up in the chain of drainage. Whether it's the colon, liver bile duct, lymphatic system or all of the above for it to clog up,” Dr. Jay Davidson said.
He adds, “The liver bile duct is one of the most important that I see what holds people back from getting well clinically. And the more attention you give to the liver bile duct, the better off we're going to be.”
BioActive Carbon Products
Dr. Jay Davidson mentioned that a product in phase one is BioActive Carbon Foundation. It is there to support quite a bit of thing. The BioActive Carbon always get their attention for binding. But more importantly, the BioActive Carbons help to give carbon and hydrogen to the body and oxygen as well.
“So, if you look at how the body is made, 96% is carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Under 4% is minerals,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. “The BioActive Carbon is giving the base bone of our body support. It is also doing other things like binding and detoxing the pathways.”
If we go out and buy activated charcoal or an activated carbon charcoal type supplement, Dr. Jay Davidson says it could come from a lot of different sources. Incidentally, activated charcoal is a long chain carbon and there are different chains of carbon.
“In the BioActive Carbon, we have small, medium and long. The long sit inside the GI tract. So, the liver processes toxins. Phase one and phase two detox is how it processes chemicals. Phase 3 is drainage,” Dr. Jay Davidson explains.
He adds, “The healthy way is that these by-products then get dumped into the bile. Bile holds on to toxins and pathogens live in there as well. It causes stagnation and causes things to get thick and affects our GI.”
BioActive Carbon Iodine
When bile is recycled, Dr. Jay Davidson says it will bring along that by-product of the chemicals and toxins with it. Activated charcoal has been known to help bind on to the bile. It is a long chain carbon. When activated charcoal binds on to the bile, the body then eliminates it through the feces.
“We utilize BioActive Carbons in many instances. And we modify the molecule based on what the needs are,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. “Bioactive Carbon Iodine is a new product of ours, designed to bind on to bad halogens like chlorine or bromine specifically. It grabs on to those halogens that typically displace iodine.”
Dr. Jay Davidson also explains that if you take a lot of iodine, it can cause a thyroid storm. Because the iodine will turn the thyroid on. It's needed to heal the thyroid. But if you have strong autoimmunity, you want to balance the minerals out.
A lot of people do not know how mitochondria affect our overall health. Dr. Jay Davidson says mitochondria has been talked about a lot. But it's rare to find stuff that works to open that up.
“When you look at mitochondria, they produce ATP in the cells. And when the mitochondria are blown out, we don't get the cellular energy,” Dr. Jay Davidson said.
He adds, “Until we get the cellular energy up above where the chronic infection and toxicity is, we're not going to re-establish that. As soon as you stop detoxing, it's going to start creeping back up. You have to re-establish cellular energy, so you don't have to take stuff forever.”
According to Dr. Jay Davidson, biomolecular oxygen is stabilized oxygen. Dr. Jay Davidson has been using it whenever he does coffee enemas once a week.
“I put a tablespoon of molasses in there to hold it in easier. Then I add the BioActive Carbon minerals and biomolecular oxygen. Ten drops of each. You can nebulize it if you have lung issues,” suggests Dr. Jay Davidson.
Dr. Jay Davidson also claims that his team has been able to stabilize the oxygen inside the fulvic acid or extracts of the fulvic acid molecule. So, not only is it delivered in the body, but it also sustains.
“Another thing you can look at is perfusion index percentage. It is a better marker to look at overall health. That's the health of your arteries and the ability for the blood to penetrate the tissues and get absorbed,” Dr. Jay Davidson said.
He adds, “If a protocol will help those who are chronically ill, a protocol also takes your health to a whole new level even if you're not in the chronic illness side.”
To those who want to try a coffee enema, Dr. Jay Davidson recommends getting organic, non-pesticide sprayed coffee beans. Light or air roasted coffee is best.
“It's not green coffee, but it's not a medium or dark roast. We go for light or air-roasted because it has more things we want health-wise, especially that the liver will benefit from,” reveals Dr. Jay Davidson. “It increases detoxification, raises glutathione, increases bile production of the liver and increases purging of the bile.”
Here are the steps on how to do a coffee enema:
- Put a tablespoon of ground coffee per cup of water. If you do a 4-cup solution, put four tablespoons of ground coffee in water.
- You can add essential oils or molasses — the reason why Dr. Jay Davidson adds the molasses in his coffee enema is actually to make it easier to hold it in.
- Boil coffee on the stove for 20 minutes and hold the enema for 15 minutes.
“When you hold coffee in, it speeds up the blood flow. Blood usually goes through the liver every six minutes. When you do a coffee enema, that shrinks to 3 minutes,” Dr. Jay Davidson said.
BioActive Carbon BioTox
BioActive Carbon BioTox is for ammonia, mold, fungus, and candida. Dr. Jay Davidson says it helps to regulate oxygenation up. It is also a perfect supportive formula for cellular energy.
“You can take BioActive Carbon Biotox and BioActive Carbon Foundation before and after a coffee enema. The BioTox not only is in phase two but can also be in phase zero or the energy booster pack because it helps the mitochondria,” said Dr. Jay Davidson.
To restore health, Dr. Jay Davidson gave these simple protocol:
- Don't eat fat for the day.
- Stop eating at 2 pm.
- Drink some Epson salt around 6 pm and 8 pm. It's going to cause diarrhea, and it will clear the intestines and move stuff quick.
- Take some olive oil and fresh grapefruit. Mix and drink it.
- Lie down and fall asleep. Olive oil causes the bile and gallbladder to purge.
- Start drinking Epson salt in the morning as well to flush colon.
Dr. Jay Davidson is no different from the other experts we had on the show as far as food is concerned. He says good diet is essential. Because it is the foundation.
“You can't out supplement a bad diet. Make sure you are eating clean and healthy,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. “Beyond that, you can look at the supplements and what you can do to help support the liver.
He adds, “We have a formula called Kidney Liver Detox. But a lot of supplement companies have kidney formulas and gallbladder bile duct type formulas as well. Apart from that, also eat food with bitters in them.”
Dr. Jay Davidson says phase two is necessary because the big toxicity epidemic has created an environment to attract the body to parasites. He believes that the idea wherein we are going to be sterile from parasites is not reality. Because we're not eliminating every single critter in the body or parasite.
“Parasites will absorb toxins and heavy metals. So, when you're doing as a parasite-type cleanse, I recommend at least 90 days,” said Dr. Jay Davidson.
He adds, “People with chronic illness or health issues could be much longer. Bottom line, when it comes to cleansing, persistence, and consistency is the name of the game. Also, do a longer initial cleanse and then modify the maintenance.”
Mimosa Pudica Seed
Mimosa Pudica Seed is one of the products under the Microbe Formulas label. Dr. Jay Davidson says it is the formula one, followed by the BioActive Carbon BioTox.
Dr. Jay Davidson also clarifies that BioTox could be in phase zero or energy booster pack. It is an organic ingredient and they have a special way to grind it down that is effective. It is also a great gut grabber and gut scrubber.
“We know we can't be all things to everybody. But the things we up out with, we want to be able to make changes in people's lives and come out with the best stuff,” Dr. Jay Davidson said.
