4 Ways to Take Bravo to get to the most needed places fast!



When you are considering how to best use Bravo GcMAF products, one must look at where you need it the most! Finding the area in your body that is in the most distress can also be the area that can be most benefited. However, I can easily build a case for all of these methods!

So much Bravo, so little time!


See your health practitioner and use your common sense. Don't over-take Bravo because you will need to remove the toxins it cleans. We highly recommend using Bravo Protocol with all of the methods below and not to use more Bravo than is comfortable over a long term.


Sure, you can have 8 cleaning crews in your home working day and night but it would exhaust you! Sure, you can stand at the pitching machine, responding to the pitches with your helmet and bat but would 5 pitching machines pointed at you be as much fun as one? Limit your use of Bravoto the amount that is fun, easy to manage and don't worry; it will all get done! Like exercise, yoga or music lessons, you will grow better at taking more Bravo bit by bit.


The 4 Methods of Taking Bravo


1 Yogurt - Slowly sipping, swishing and swallowing the yogurt assists mostly the upper part of the body! The brain, nerves, throat, thyroid, heart, lungs, esophagus, and the walls of the stomach all receive the most.


Over time, the beneficial bacteria permeates to the connective tissue, muscles and nerves giving us comfort and the feeling that everything is contained and manageable.


Our immune system, supported by a ketogenic diet, slowly clears out the potential heat/inflamation and residual infections which may fester. The beneficial bacteria moves in to cool and insulate the nerves, making our thought process clearer, deeper, and more focused. I am not a doctor! This is just what I experience while taking Bravo. Experience it for yourself over time.


I personally experienced the effect in my intestines while taking yogurt, so I know the yogurt reaches there too. I also experienced my thought processes going from being able to handle one thing at a time to two, three and even four parts of the same analysis at once! It reminded me of being in college. (and that I wasn't doing it anymore!) I personally gained lots of mental function from taking Bravo!


2 Capsules - The enteric coated Bravo Concentrate Caps speed past the stomach acid for delivery to the area of the pancreas, small intestine, liver, tubes of the digestive system, the stomach and even the spleen and kidneys getting it coated, cleaned, and brightened more quickly than yogurt alone.


The Bravo Concentrate holds the complete action and nutrition pattern of Bravo GcMAF yogurt in capsule form and is made from prepared Bravo GcMAF Yogurt which is dried at a low temperature and it is not from starter powders mixed together. It can stay stable without refrigeration making it great for travel.


For me, I feel brighter! It is like the lights "turned on" in that area and I had no idea how much my pancreas needed attention and how quickly it cleared up after years of not tolerating any sugars!


3 Suppositories - Taking a suppository brings Bravo GcMAF action to the colon, bladder and reproductive system which can harbor low grade infection. Bravo Coop offers different strengths in the suppositories to help you find the right daily level for you.


For me, the suppositories seemed to transform this area into a lighter and more breathable feeling. Also, I felt the whole colon, duodenum, stomach, esophagus, and soft palette feel more connected and awake. I even experienced an increase in being able to taste my food!


I went from not liking the idea of suppository use, to not wanting to miss this wonderful experience!


4 Yogurt Topically on the Skin - Have you tried this yet? Take a small amount (1/2 tsp) of Bravo Yogurt and apply a thin layer to the skin of your face and neck and let it dry. Soon your skin will feel like a baby's skin! It feels hydrated, full, strong and happy. I experienced less wrinkles and that it was easy to do!


The skin is the primary defense of the body. It defends against bad microbes among other things. The skin is also the brain of the body, according to Bruce Lipton, a Stanford cell biologist, in The Biology of Belief. Immune support in this area allows us to stay in touch with reality and defend ourselves effectively.

I have always "fed" my skin naturally, with aloe vera, fresh seed oils, and coconut oil. Now that I have Bravo to use as a natural emollient lotion, I get so disappointed when I forget this step! It is such a benefit!


How to mix applications of Bravo - With all 4 types of applications, the dosage approach stays the same.

- Begin slowly with a very small amount (approximately 1/4 tsp) x 2 times per day for 1 week and then build up each week a bit more, as in 1 tsp, 1 TBS, 2 TBS. - 2 x per day. etc. Dr. Ruggiero suggests not taking more than 1/2 cup per day, however, I take far less. If you are mixing applications, you still stay under this guideline. Perhaps one dose is one application and another dose is another, or you start in your area of concern and branch out to other applications when you are taking more.

- After the first month, follow your doctor's advice or if alone, use your body's lead but you want your body to feel great.

- If you are taking too much, you may feel overwhelmed, too much to respond to or too busy.

- If you take too little or are not eating well enough, you may not feel anything. You may not feel any benefit, energy, or "brightening". If this is happening, clean up the diet, take vitamin D, hold to your start up for 1 month, then you may consider taking tiny increments until you feel great and then hold at that level.

- When planning to mix different Bravo applications, common sense prevails. If you are currently taking "x" x 2, for example, stay within your daily dosage even if you are applying it several different ways. Any combination as long as it doesn't exceed the daily amount.

- The start-up amounts for both capsules and suppositories are for sale in "start-up kits". This makes it easy to increase over the first month of use for either application.

- When using capsules or suppositories, look on the Bravo Coop site for products in the application you wish to use that are similar to the level you are currently taking.

Q: What is the equivalent dosage of the capsules?

A: The capsules have dosages that equal the yogurt’s for example . . . 1 teaspoon, 1 tablespoon, 2 tablespoons etc. What every you take in yogurt, you can take it as a capsule instead. if you are comfortable taking 2 TBS of yogurt, twice per day, you can take two tablespoons of yogurt, capsules or suppositories as a mix and match twice per day. Just don’t take more than you are comfortable with. If you can’t feel it don’t push it! More is not better. For example, if you are taking 2 TBS of yogurt you would want to stay at 2 TBS per dose but it won’t matter if it is yogurt, or caps. You might take a 2 TBS capsule in the other dose and

2 tbs suppository at the other dose. All of these forms have about that same strength so you can mix and match.

You can even get fancier and split it. If you take 2 TBS per dose, twice per day. You might take split doses with different items. such as 1 TBS yogurt and 1 TBS capsule in one dose and the same at the other dose. Or mix it up. a 1 TBS suppository and a 1 TBS capsule at same dose. You are still taking 2 TBS at each dose.

Q: Would be o.k. to start with a quarter teaspoon of yogurt PLUS one capsule twice a day or whether that would be too much?

A: That would be too much. The first month is about building up slowly. Why? Because the yogurt grabs onto the tissue and shimmers it and the tissue detoxifies. Your body needs to move that toxin out. The more you take, the more territory will be renovated. How many cleaning crews are you comfortable with? More is not better. Be comfortable and have easy access to happy good living. Feel great while getting better. If you have to work too hard, you might get discouraged and there is no reason for that.

Q: Since the capsule gets down further, and I'm trying to address my colon, maybe this would be o.k?

A if you are trying to address the colon, why not take suppositories? Just be careful to regulate the dosage.

Q: Do the capsules also have the GCMAF and are they the same potency as the yogurt?

A: Neither the yogurt or the caps technically have GcMAF.

All of the above methods have the essential ingredients to create a live micro biome who then produces the GcMAF.

It is that essential micro biome that we are building and the doctor’s formula of ratios that we are protecting.

To me, it seems like we need to continue to feed and replenish it. If I stop taking it, it slowly fades based on my diet.

I observe mostly when I travel or run out for a few days. Our bodies are big! It takes a lot of product to fill all the places and get between the nerves and connective tissue, etc. I find that the yogurt is always working. No worries about that. Just don’t let it die like house plants and pets by not feeding it and providing what it needs. I consider replenishing it when I take more because it has the food in it, (colostrum) and the housing (probiotics) and the cute little beneficials.

Again, my experience is that the Yogurt has it all and is readily available. It will go in and start homesteading right away. The capsules have to rehydrate and come alive which it does but it takes a while.

I experience the capsules as a “brightening” through my middle . (Pancreas, gall bladder, small intestines, bottom of the duodenum and diaphragm. I experience how happy my body is to have this interaction and the fade when I don’t take the capsules. I started the yogurt a year and a half before the capsules came out so if my gut was going to fill up, it would have already. Taking the capsules was like turning on a new room in my body which had not seen Bravo before.

I hope the helps. It’s an amazing feeling to be brightened!!! I won’t stop taking the yogurt. I also take some Non dairy bravo at times. I am experimenting now to measure if it reduces inflammation.

In terms of potency, the caps can have different potencies. We don’t want to overwhelm a new area and it seems that each place I use it, it starts a new colony so the rules apply but only in terms of how it detoxifies.

    Message Hello Mimi! I just ordered another Starter Pack. About 6 weeks to 2 months ago, I ran out of my prepared Bravo. (It was when I wrote you that I had contaminated a batch and it smelled of yeast.) Well, in a big hurry packing, I forgot about what was wrong with my starter that I intended to bring on vacation. Specifically, I absent mindedly scooped some good yogurt into a sterilized container but with a kitchen knife that I had just used to slice cheddar cheese! I didn't think it mattered. Instead of throwing it away, I kept it. Then, my husband and I went on vacation and I tried to make a batch with my starter. Of course it also smelled like yeast/cheese. I think I wrote to you about not having a warm enough temperature and the yeast problem. Nevertheless, I didn't throw it out and instead refrigerated it. Then, a few days later, the refrigerator went out! So, my husband dragged it outside to be picked up. What I didn't tell him was that my yogurt was still inside. (Why upset him, right?) Well, after a 24 hrs. in the warmth of the unplugged fridge outside in over 100 degrees, apparently the Bravo cultures started to balance out. It had been at the right temperature and no longer smelled like yeast. It smelled like good Bravo yogurt. I decided to taste it. Then, I placed it in the new refrigerator thinking, good! I saved the whole batch. Alas, the next day, it smelled like yeast again so this time I discarded it. Here is the funny thing. After eating about a teaspoon twice, I was sitting in a chair and thought I felt a tickle deep in my left ear. Then, I heard something that sounded being in a hotel and hearing someone finishing taking a shower on the other side of a wall and the water noisily, slurpily draining out. I actually looked at the wall behind me and out the window to see if it was raining. Well, for several minutes in total fascination, I listened to my own ear's Eustachian tube clearing from the power of gravity. It was cool. I think the reason it worked so fast was that the Bravo was at a higher concentration of probiotics and the fact that I had already been on a Bravo regimen for several months. I'm convinced it truly works. I told you before the story about how the first time I had a let down response. I thought my husband had opened a horrible toxic can of auto paint in the bedroom, but it was from fumes I had inhaled at a car paint shop six weeks earlier! Wow. We were just in Daytona Beach Sand n Surf resort, and I told another owner about Bravo and it coming from Christmas, Florida. She was very interested and I think she will order, too. Well, sorry for "bending your ear" for so long! Thanks for listening. Have a wonderful Labor Day and God Bless You Athena

    Answer We are going to make this thing!!!! Oh yeah! Gather utensils: stirring and tasting spoons (tasting spoons are to taste the yogurt after it has been cultured) spatula thermometer (can be any type of thermometer, you need this to measure the temp of the boiling milk AND to measure the temp of the yogurt to ensure it reaches the optimal 95 degrees for culturing) measuring cup for milk pyrex vessel to heat milk (does not have to be pyrex, this is what you are going to be putting inside the boiling pot of water, AFTER YOU STERILIZE everything. pot of boiling water (this is to sterilize your utensils & then you will need to use the boiling water to heat the milk) foil to cover pyrex (this is to put on your yogurt while culturing, you want air flow but not too much to let bacteria in. You would put the foil over the bowl after you finish boiling the milk, mixing in the powder, and it is ready to culture) Gather ingredients: Milk (the only rule for milk is that it is not ultra pasteurized. We have a blog post on our "Blog" page) Starting powder (the 3 packages, Bifidobacteria and yeast (small white envelope), Lactobacillia (foil packet) and Colostrum (large white envelope.) Directions: Sterilize utensils and pyrex bowl by boiling 15 mins. (All new BravoCoop jars have been sterilized by boiling. Caps will melt so boil only for a few mins!) You simply boil the water and place all utensils and the bowl/jar that you are going to use to culutre your Bravo in. Plastic will melt in boiling water, please be aware. Don't leave the plastic in for long, just swish it around. Using a 1 pack, put the 4.25 cups of milk into a double boiler or pan. Place your milk in a pyrex bowl inside a pot with boiling water. It is basically the concept of a double boiler if you do not have one at home. Use your thermometer to measure when the milk gets to 162 degrees. Or if no thermometer, until small bubbles start to first rise at sides. Cool the milk down for 10 mins in ice bath or let it sit until 95 degrees. Skim off the skin that has formed. (once or twice) Mix the 3 packets of powder, in a small cup with a bit of milk, working out the lumps. Put the vessel of milk to “culture” at 95 degrees with a stable heat source in oven with light on calibrated for 100 (open door with a wooden spoon) proofing setting or warming drawer on oven (test it with a thermometer first) in a yogurt machine calibrated for 100 degrees Using insulation to maintain heat. Such as thermos, cooler, foam. Culture it covered with a loose cover. Foil, cheese cloth, glass lids loosely laid, even silicone covers but is should have some gas exchange for the culturing process. 95 degrees for 12 hours OR between 70-85 degrees for 24 to 48 hours Refrigerate After a few hours of chilling, I transfer it into Miron glass. Lasts for 2 - 21/2 weeks in normal storage vessels or 4 weeks in Miron glass jar.

    Taste Method I taste the yogurt to know when the yogurt is done if especially if something looks different about my batch. Underdone yogurt will have a taste of “raw milk”. Done is silky, cultured and smooth.   * It is much like a custard and needs to have the center set without the sides getting too hard.  This can be done with a shape (like tall/thin and slender) so there isn't too much in the middle to get stalled.
 * Gradually the raw milk is overcome by the cultured taste. This is the peak of excellence where the culturing should stop and it should be refrigerated.
 Overdone yogurt, turns a bit sour as the yeast begins to over-grow.  Use less time next time. Think of it as a bell curve… The first line is under done The top of the bell curve is done The third line is over done. Under Done Over Find the perfection by tasting it. Write down your culture time and temperature for next time.   Adjust the temperature and or time for * outside ambient temperature * volume of yogurt being cultured * Seasonal temperatures Intermediate Protocol Ready to try something else? A very nice “intermediate” method for a batch is to let the yogurt “culture” for 93 degrees till done at 12 hours. Then unplug or discontinue the heat and let it slowly cool down for about 4 hours before being refrigerated. The cultures don’t all do best at the same heat. This lets all the cultures have fun and come to fruition. If the idea stresses you, stay with the beginners until you want more. Write again for the advanced protocol when you feel ready.
