GEMM protocol

GEMM protocol

What is the GEMM protocol?
The Gut Ecology and Metabolic Modulation (GEMM) protocol is a way to improve your gut and overall health by utilising your body’s own defence mechanisms and healing abilities. It utilises an inclusive diet together with effective natural therapeutics to encourage your body to heal itself. GEMM relies largely on the ability of food molecules to mobilize the body’s own defences, beginning at the cells lining the gut. GEMM activates the capacity of these cells to maintain and regulate the environment within the digestive tract and the body as a whole.

What is the GEMM protocol?
The Gut Ecology and Metabolic Modulation (GEMM) protocol is a way to improve your gut and overall health by utilising your body’s own defence mechanisms and healing abilities. It utilises an inclusive diet together with effective natural therapeutics to encourage your body to heal itself. GEMM relies largely on the ability of food molecules to mobilize the body’s own defences, beginning at the cells lining the gut. GEMM activates the capacity of these cells to maintain and regulate the environment within the digestive tract and the body as a whole.

Does GEMM require a specific ‘diet’?
The GEMM food principles are based on variety and seasonality. Your practitioner will adapt these principles to your individual needs initially, while aiming to improve diversity of wholefoods as you progress through GEMM.
Is GEMM a lifestyle approach?
GEMM is designed to incorporate a balanced lifestyle approach. It is a holistic approach to health, encompassing the many aspects of a health-promoting lifestyle.
Is this program underpinned by science?
Every step in the GEMM protocol is backed by evidence-based research. Your GEMM practitioner has reviewed this research while studying the Foundations course.
How are GEMM clinicians qualified to use this approach?
GEMM is a post-graduate program for clinicians qualified in Integrative Medicine, Naturopathy, Medicine or Nutrition Science and requires additional assessment and regular annual upskilling to maintain active accreditation.
What conditions does this approach treat?
Because the GEMM approach is to implement treatment at the cellular level, ALL the cells of your body should benefit. While GEMM initially addresses the function of the gut, it then works to improve the function of all bodily systems. The nutrigenomically active ingredients in the formulations, together with the underlying diet, help to improve the function of all the body’s cells at a fundamental level. Conditions include: irritable bowel syndrome, food intolerances, anxiety, psoriasis, arthritis, acne, eczema and fatigue.
Will GEMM help to improve my immune function?
Improving immune function is at the core of what GEMM will achieve. Your immune system begins in the gut, the reason we focus there first.
How long will this program take?
Most patients will experience substantial improvement within 3 months, but more complex and longstanding conditions may take longer.  Your clinician may be able to provide approximate timeframes based on the information you provide and their clinical experience
Will GEMM give me long-term results?
When you understand how your lifestyle and food choices affect your genes, you are more empowered to choose the right options. Ultimately, you are in control of your long-term results.
