1 How do Patients Take THE GIFT from Mother Earth, BEST FULVIC and Humic and Fulvic Based Supplements? Patients typically start taking THE GIFT from Mother Earth. THE GIFT from Mother Earth is a highly-concentrated blend of Humic and Fulvic. Humic naturally has a Fulvic fraction, but Super-Concentrated Fulvic has been blended with Humic to increase the Fulvic concentration to 100,000 ppm in THE GIFT. This concentration is the same concentration as our BEST FULVIC 100% Fulvic product at 100,000 ppm. THE GIFT from Mother Earth is an economical way for patients to receive the benefits of the all the Humic molecules with concentrated Fulvic too, and not have to take two products. The recommended maintenance dose of THE GIFT 1-2 Ounces per day based on one teaspoon per 20 pounds (preferably split ½ in the morning and ½ in the midafternoon) 6 teaspoons = 1 ounce = 2 Tablespoons. A maintenance dose is for those people who are healthy and want to maintain their health. It is advisable to take the second dose mid-afternoon because of the vitamins THE GIF T naturally carries may interfere with sleep if taken at night. To Start patients on THE GIFT titration up to a maintenance dose will likely avoid detoxification effects - Humic and Fulvic are potent detoxifiers. The primary detoxification symptom is diarrhea and nausea. Many patients do well starting on a teaspoon a day (split morning and midafternoon) for one week. After one week, they can start increasing their dose by a teaspoon a day until they are up to their maintenance dose. For those who may need additional health and wellness support, BEST FULVIC 100% Fulvic is recommended. Patients also are advised to take a high-quality Omega 3 fish oil supplement. Many practitioners prescribe a higher dose of 1-2 grams. This assists Humic and Fulvic s activities by helping to balance the omega ratios. A better balance of omegas can assist in the prevention of inflammatory processes that contribute to systemic inflammation. Getting patients to reduce consumption of fried foods, and other foods containing oils that upset this balance, is also important. When should Patients take 100% Fulvic? For those who may benefit from additional support above 1-2 ounces per day of THE GIFT, our Humic and Fulvic Blend, adding 100% Fulvic alone may be a better option than increasing the dose of THE GIFT over more than 2 ounces per day. Larger Humic molecules do not pass easily out of the intestine into the bloodstream which helps support the important roles they play in the intestinal tract, such as: restoring and maintaining the fluid and electrolyte balance of the body, supporting 1 How to Prescribe Humic and Fulvic Health Products

2 the production of digestive enzymes, restoring a healthy microbial balance, providing fiber (HUMIC is one of the best fiber supplements you can take), and others. Patients should notice a change in their bowel movements. For most, the Humic in 1-2 ounces of THE GIFT supports this well. Fulvic is near 100% Absorbed, and is highly-active. THE GIFT has an elevated Fulvic concentrated, but after 1-2 ounces of THE GIFT it is better to use 100% Fulvic if additional support is needed. BEST FULVIC is also sold in 3 concentrations: Concentrated 100,000 ppm for general use, Highly-concentrated (200,000) for Practitioner Use, and Super -concentrated (300,000) also for practitioner use or for those who travel frequently and need small volumes. Fulvic is very well-tolerated at higher doses and up to an additional 2 ounces of 100,000 ppm or 1 ounce of 200,000 ppm Fulvic, 3 times per day can be taken. In other words, up to a total of 3 ounces of THE GIFT Humic/Fulvic blend, plus up to 6 ounces of Fulvic at a concentration of 100,000 ppm or 3 ounces of Fulvic at a 200,000 ppm concentration, per day can be prescribed. Many patients who need additional support do well by taking the same amount of Fulvic as they are taking of THE GIFT, unless there are significant health issues that need more support. THE GIFT and additional Fulvic may be part of a patient s health restorative plan. Many people learn about Humic and Fulvic when they are facing a health challenge and looking for allies to help them on their path to restore good health. Humic and Fulvic may help restore natural body functions, boost immune response, and enable our body s own ability to heal itself whenever possible by providing the nutrients it needs and providing the physiological support by energizing the cells to achieve the electrical balance they need to function better, assist in removing toxic substances such as heavy metals, neutralizing acids, and many others. It is advisable that higher doses of any Humic / Fulvic blend or Fulvic supplement be split throughout the day (2 to 3 times per day), and patients work their way up to higher doses to avoid detoxification discomfort. Fulvic alone can also be used successfully by those rare patients who have detoxification symptoms when starting on THE GIFT even at very low doses, or for very frail patients. Even a small amount of Humic is beneficial, and 100% Fulvic can be substituted for the difference. Are there any side-effects to taking higher doses? Humic and Fulvic are typically very well-tolerated because they are naturally in our bodies. We are supposed to receive them from our food sources. However, our food sources no longer contain the Humic and Fulvic they once did, or the minerals, vitamins, and nutrients Humic and Fulvic naturally carry to be adequate to help keep us healthy and strong. 2 How to Prescribe Humic and Fulvic Health Products

3 Many leading experts believe one of the causes of degenerative diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, etc., is a lack of nutrition in our food sources. So despite even the best efforts to eat a balanced diet, nutrient supplementation is a necessity in our modern world. Humic and Fulvic are easily eliminated and do not build-up and become toxic in our bodies. On the contrary, Humic and Fulvic help stimulate and assist the body to eliminate acidic wastes, heavy metals, and other toxins. Because of this sometimes patients can experience detoxification issues such as diarrhea or nausea when starting a Humic and Fulvic supplement. These symptoms are generally mild and typically resolve within a very short period of time. If these detoxification symptoms do occur, Patients can reduce the dose (for example going from ½ ounce per day down to ¼ ounce per day) to reduce or eliminate symptoms. The dose where no symptoms occur should be maintained for at least a week or two. Afterwards, slowly increase the dose and, as long as no symptoms occur, maintain each increase of dose for two weeks. On the positive side, these symptoms are a good sign that things are working much better. General Notes About Taking Humic and Fulvic It is preferable to split the dose in two and take ½ ounce in the morning and ½ ounce in the mid-afternoon or 3 times a day for higher doses. Since Humic and Fulvic stimulate our body and naturally contain a baseline of Vitamins, it is important not to take them too late in the day to avoid interfering with sleep. THE GIFT can be taken with or without food. It can be added to water or juice or taken alone. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT PATIENTS DRINK PLENTY OF PURE NON-CHLORINATED WATER when taking a Humic or Fulvic Supplement. Chlorine is highly reactive with Humic and Fulvic. Chlorine is unhealthy for our bodies and is toxic to biological systems and should be avoided. Humic or Fulvic supplements should not be taken at the same time as prescription medications. Fulvic will likely influence the absorption and utilization. Humic and Fulvic are also powerful detoxifying agents and may alter the effective dose of prescription medications because many medications are foreign or toxic substances to the body and can be removed by Humic or Fulvic from the body thereby reducing a medication s effects. Organic supplements can be given at the same time as Humic and Fulvic, but the dose may need to be adjusted due to Fulvic ability to increase absorption and cellular utilization. Please discuss with patients any supplements they may be taking before starting Humic or Fulvic supplementation. Anything they Fulvic will generally be better absorbed and possibly have a higher potency, especially organic supplements. Also, Fulvic and Humic naturally contain a baseline of 74+ organic, ionic minerals, vitamins, amino acids and other nutrients, so in addition to improved absorption that increases the effective dose of other supplements, Humic and Fulvic are also supplementing a baseline of nutrients, especially basic vitamins and minerals. 3 How to Prescribe Humic and Fulvic Health Products

4 HYDRATION IS IMPORTANT WHEN TAKING A HUMIC OR FULVIC SUPPLEMENT. Our Bodies are 55-80% water depending on your age, sex, Body Mass Index (BMI), etc. Drinking plenty of water helps us to eliminate toxins and acidic wastes. Blood and Lymph Volume are also dependent on water intake and excretion which can make it easier for acidic wastes and toxins to be expelled from our bodies. There are no hard and fast rules about how much water you need every day because there are many factors that influence your hydration needs. For example body size and weight, the climate where you live (hot weather generally requires more hydration than cooler weather because you sweat more), how much you exercise, consumption of alcoholic beverages or caffeine, body acidity or health conditions are some of these factors. A good estimate is to take body weight in pounds and divide that number in half. This gives the amount in ounces a person needs (8 ounces equals one cup). For every 20 minutes of exercise add another 8 ounces, if you drink alcoholic beverages drink at least the same amount in water. If you are on a detoxification and cleansing program you should also increase your water consumption to help your body flush out the acids and toxins at least by 8 to 16 ounces. Your urine should have a faint yellow color and very little smell. Urine that is dark and that has a strong odor is probably a good indication you are not hydrating properly. If you have any heart, kidney or adrenal problems, or your health care provider has you taking diuretics, you need to consult with your doctor about how much water to drink each day. Advise patients not to drink all of the water they need per day all at once. Divide the amount and drink several glasses of water throughout the day. This is especially important if they engage in lots of heavy exercise. Also drink only a moderate amount of water during mealtimes too much water can dilute stomach acids and digestive enzymes and interfere with food digestion. INFORMATION ABOUT SPECIALTY PRODUCTS All of the Humic and Fulvic-based specialty products, except 100% Fulvic are based on the Humic/Fulvic blend found in THE GIFT, but provide additional support in specific nutritional areas. An ounce of any of the specialty product line will contain the same amount of Humic and Fulvic as one ounce of THE GIFT, just additional nutrients. It is recommended that anyone new to Humic and Fulvic supplements consider taking THE GIFT first before switching to another product to allow the body time to acclimate to supplementing Humic and Fulvic, primarily due to their detoxification effects and how they support restoration of normal cellular function. Supplement products with special nutritional blends are well tolerated and up to 2 to 4 ounces can be taken if needed. 100% Fulvic can also be used as outlined above for patients taking Specialty Products who need additional support. 4 How to Prescribe Humic and Fulvic Health Products

5 Comprehensive Wellness Formula Comprehensive Wellness Formula is a unique Humic and Fulvic-powered specialty supplement that is a blend of over 310 of All Natural Liquid Ingredients including Organic Vitamins, Ionic Minerals, Amino Acids, Phytonutrients, Whole Foods, Antioxidants and More Plus a Harmonically Balanced Herbal and Botanical Blend to Help Support Optimum Health and Wellness...all in a single supplement. The recommended maintenance dose of COMPREHENSIVE WELLNESS is 1-2 Ounces per day based on one teaspoon per 20 pounds (preferably split ½ ounce in the morning and ½ ounce in the mid-afternoon). A maintenance dose is for those people who are healthy and want to maintain their health. Up to 3-4 ounces can safely be taken. If additional support is needed, 100% Fulvic can be used as outlined above. COMPREHENSIVE WELLNESS provides the Daily Value of primary Vitamins and macro minerals. It is important to remember the nutrients in COMPREHENSIVE WELLNESS are absorbed and much more highly utilized than typical multi-vitamin supplements because they are powered by Fulvic to deliver them right to the cell. Fulvic s ability to restore and help maintain membrane electrical potential insures nutrients pass inside better and waste products are more easily removed from the cell and eliminated from the body. General Notes About Taking Comprehensive Wellness It may be preferable to start patients on THE GIFT to acclimate them to a Humic and Fulvic supplement. Many practitioners have patients take THE GIFT for at least a month prior to making any changes. Because COMPREHENSIVE WELLNESS is has as its base THE GIFT, patients typically do not have a difficult time transitioning. It is preferable to split the dose in two and take ½ ounce in the morning and ½ ounce in the mid-afternoon or 3 times a day for higher doses. Since Humic and Fulvic stimulate our body and naturally contain a baseline of Vitamins, especially Vitamin B s, it is important not to take them too late in the day so they will not interfere with sleep. This is especially true of the added nutrients in COMPREHENSIVE WELLNESS. COMPREHENSIVE WELLNESS can be taken with or without food. It can be added to water or juice or taken alone.
