The latest study from Dr Marco Ruggiero also discussed on the recent Autism Recovery Summit 2 describes the effects of Bravo yogurt consumption associated with intermittent fasting (intermittent fasting is a means to achieve nutritional ketosis).

Dr. Jerry Blythe, MD, a long-time cancer survivor and marathon runner, who embarked in a three-month experience of intermittent fasting and Bravo consumption.

The study found (in line with other studies) that when you introduce ketosis, lipophilic toxicants are mobilised and eliminated via the urine.  In this paper, it was demonstrated that Bravo yogurt detoxifies the body of these harmful chemicals and they are then eliminated via the urine.

Toxicants are harmful chemicals such as heavy metals or non-metals such as phthalates and accumulate in fat cells.  They can be responsible for an increase in Nagalase and chronic inflammation that may negatively affect the immune system, the endocrine system and the brain.

Nutritional Ketosis

Ketosis is a normal metabolic process, something your body does to keep working. When it doesn’t have enough carbohydrates from food for your cells to burn for energy, it burns stored fat instead; this results in a build-up of acids called ketones in the body.  Some people follow an eating plan such as a ketogenic diet to encourage ketosis.
Fasting and other dietary regimens have been used to treat epilepsy since at least 500 BC. To mimic the metabolism of fasting, the ketogenic diet (KD) was introduced by modern physicians as a treatment for epilepsy in the 1920s.
There are a number of published benefits for following a ketogenic diet, there are also some known side effects in type 1 diabetes and certain other rare situations where excessive ketosis can be dangerous therefore it should be carried out under the direct supervision of a trained health professional.

Bravo yogurt
In this particular case, elimination of a number of chemicals that are known endocrine disruptors led to significant improvement of thyroid function as demonstrated by the decrease of TSH.  Accumulation of endocrine disruptors (chemical toxicants) leads to impaired thyroid function that in turn leads to reduced basal metabolism, reduced energy, retention of liquids and weight gain.  When you eliminate the endocrine disrupter the thyroid begins to work again.

How is this possible?

Many of the probiotic strains in the yogurt are able to bind and eliminate the toxicants, as well as show an increased production of anti-oxidants and enzymes,  therefore the combined action of intermittent fasting (also known as Nutritional Ketosis) and Bravo yogurt consumption led to elimination of toxicants, decree of nasalise activity, improves in thyroid and endocrine function.
