PRODUCTS AND PROTOCOL
THE FOREVERWELL APPROACH TO MIGRAINE PREVENTION
Detailed Product Descriptions & Our Protocol
Before we explain the details of our approach, please
make note of these important points.
- Gut Brain Therapy is new and our products are unique, so unique in fact that we have been issued a US Patent (#6517832 issued 2/11/2003). However, they reflect a philosophy of the cause of migraine disease and return to health that our doctors have been using in their practices for over 20 years. The focus of their efforts as a doctor is to return the body to normal function. It is an approach that is profoundly simple, based in common sense and profoundly successful.
- It is not necessary for you to make any changes to the migraine medications you are currently taking. In our study the migraine sufferers were told to continue using any pharmaceutical, natural, or over the counter products they were already taking. No life style or dietary changes are required. Simply start using the products and judge for yourself.
- Our goal is to get you to stop taking our products. As the underlying dysfunction returns to normal and you bring your body back to balance it is likely that you will no longer need our migraine prevention products. Be sure to read the Philosophy and Gut Brain Therapy sections of this site.
- 80% of our study participants noticed good to dramatic improvement in their migraine disease and its effect on their quality of life. Most noticed some improvement within the first 30 days. Initial improvement, for many, can be subtle, like improved energy, better sleep patterns, better mental clarity, reduction in the intensity of their pain. All of these reactions are an indication that the body is moving in the right direction. Others will experience more dramatic improvement. Many customers find that within the first 30 days they are having many fewer migraine days. It is best to have a three to six month attitude toward using the products, but again it is likely that you will notice some improvement within the first 30 days.
Recommended Protocol. The specific migraine prevention protocol and the one used by our study participants is to take three capsules of Foundation Formula and two capsules of Renew Formula ten minutes before your two largest meals of the day. Each bottle of Foundation Formula and Renew Formula is a 30 day supply at this recommended dosage.
Furthermore we recommend you stay on a full dosage for three or four months and then go to half dosage for an additional three or four months. At that point it is appropriate for you to determine whether you feel better staying on a maintenance dose or it is time to be supplement free. Your body will tell you if our migraine prevention protocol has been successful.
One final note. As mentioned above it is not necessary to make any changes to your current use of other migraine products, pharmaceutical, natural, or over the counter. To the extent that you feel you no longer need other products we strongly recommend you work with your doctor to eliminate or reduce your reliance on those various migraine medications.
ForeverWell Foundation Formula
75% Fish Protein Concentrate. This product is whole food fish meaning all the nutritional value of the fish filet that is used as the raw material is in the finished product. A gentle biological process is used to remove the water from the tissue and also to predigest the fish protein into amino acids and small chain peptides.
25% Pro Veg Greens. This product is a combination of organic grasses and sea vegetables. The process involves the use of a blend of 14 probiotics to digest the proteins down to amino acids and small chain peptides.
This is an excellent product for those who are sensitive or highly allergic due to the predigested nature of each ingredient. We have had doctors use Foundation Formula with patients who are typically allergic to fin fish with no adverse affects.

ForeverWell Foundation Formula
The Bottom Line
Foundation Formula is a combination of (75%) FPC (fish protein concentrate) and 25% ProVeg Greens. FPC is a whole food product made from fish filets that are gently predigested using a proprietary enzymatic fermentation that results in a high level of bioactive peptides. Small chain peptides have been shown to be critical for gut integrity and function. ProVeg Greens is a combination of wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa grass, spirulina, kelp and other sea vegetables. This product is also predigested using a proprietary fermentation process that utilizes 14 naturally occurring probiotics and their enzymes.
On one level we are providing the three ingredients that most doctors use in addressing digestion and assimilation problems: probiotics, enzymes, and peptides. On a deeper level we are providing the body with a pool of building blocks from whole food sources that are completely "body ready". Therefore the nutrients are available to support and trigger the body's inherent abilities of repair and recovery.
Our Foundation Formula is designed to improve digestion and assimilation. It is composed of two ingredients, 75% is FPC (fish protein concentrate) and 25% ProVeg Greens. This is a combination of a whole food fish filet concentrate with a whole food vegetable concentrate. Together they provide those elements most critical for improved digestion, peptides, probiotics and enzymes.
FPC is an enzymatically rendered fish protein of exceptionally high biological value, with a high level of bioactive peptides. Small chain peptides have been shown to have biological activity in the body in addition to their nutrient value. While there are potentially hundreds of thousands of peptides, research has identified the specific action of a mere handful. Most peptide research is being done in critical care where enteral feeding studies are comparing the use of the three types of feeding formulas available, intact protein, amino acid based, or peptide based.
The most fascinating aspect of this work is that the best results are obtained from the use of peptide-based formulas and the poorest results come from the use of amino acid based formulas. Interestingly, when amino acid formulas are used gut integrity deteriorates and malabsorption and bacterial translocation problems actually increase. This work has led to the understanding that the cells of the gut lining are fed locally rather than systemically. In other words, they get nutritional support from nutrients as they are absorbed through the lining of the gut. From a protein standpoint, this nutritional support comes from the peptides, not individual amino acids, indicating that the peptides are actually allowing the gut wall to heal and repair. This is consistent with the success reported in using FPC for the treatment of any sort of inflammatory bowel disease or problems associated with leaky gut syndrome.
ProVeg Greens, which makes up 25% of Foundation Formula, is a blend of whole food vegetable sources, wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa grass, spirulina, kelp and other sea vegetables. These ingredients are blended together and predigested using a proprietary process involving the use of 14 naturally occurring probiotics and their enzymes. We have spent several years searching for the proper ingredients to blend with FPC to assure that we were offering a one step product that would provide you with the best digestion/assimilation product you have ever used. The testing we have done on ProVeg Greens has satisfied us that the viability of the probiotics and enzymes is outstanding and therefore it is the perfect combination with FPC.
ForeverWell Renew Formula
The Bottom Line
Renew Formula is principally a liver support product that provides secondary support to the kidneys and spleen. It is designed to enhance the function of the critical detoxification pathways and removal of byproducts of cellular metabolism while simultaneously providing nutrients to ensure maximum rebuilding, particularly when used in conjunction with Foundation Formula.
Our product design strategy is based on the belief that synergistic combinations of targeted nutritional and herbal components are more readily accepted by the body and consequently work more effectively than larger doses of single herbs or nutrients. Therefore, while you will notice that there is less than what is generally considered to be a therapeutic dose of any particular ingredient in Renew you will find that together they are very effective.
Our focus in designing Renew Formula is to provide nutritional support directly to the organs of elimination while also providing the nutrient and herbal components that have been shown in practice and research to be critical for antioxidant and detoxification function. Some of the ingredients have been shown to have direct impact in these two areas and others are known cofactors for critical biochemical pathways of detoxification and increasing glutathione levels in the liver.
The ingredients that have detoxification activity include the following: Malic acid, N-acetyl-L-cysteine, inositol, Silybum marianum (milk thistle), Apium graveolens (celery seed), Taraxacum officinale (dandelion), and Apium petroselinum (parsley), Cynara scolymus (artichoke).
Those ingredients included for their antioxidant activity include: proanthocyanidins and super oxide dismutase.
The following ingredients are included for their cofactor functions and/or their ability to provided direct nutritional support to critical biochemical pathways: magnesium aspartate, manganese glycerylphosphate, zinc gluconate, copper chelate, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, pyridoxal 5 phophate, bromelain, Nasturtium officinale (watercress), Capsicum frutescens (cayenne), Agaricus blazei (mushroom), and Beta vulgaris (Beet root).
