Erin here with the Ruscio team, answering an audience question. I’ve been thinking about trying your intestinal support formula or ISF. I’m going through Dr. Ruscio’s, DC protocol and I’m wondering where it makes the most sense. So immunoglobulin supplementation can be a great addition to your gut protocol, as long as you’ve addressed diet, tried probiotics, and treated gut imbalances. You can use the intestinal support formula during probiotic phase, which is step two, or after antimicrobials, step three.

Take the recommended dosing until you reach peak improvement, usually around six weeks to nine weeks. After that, you can start decreasing the dose until you’re off completely or until you found the minimal effective dose. The good news is most patients tolerate ISF very well, and it has a high rate of success. Learn more about intestinal support formula in our shop at If you decide you wanna try ISF, use code ISFPodcast at checkout for 15% off. That’s ISFPodcast.
