Gut Microbiome

A gut microbiome test can tell you what types of microbes live in your gut and their links with better or worse health outcomes. Your gut microbiome affects many parts of the body, including digestion, immunity, and your nervous system.

Your gut is also home to trillions of bacteria and about 3 million genes — and this genetic material is unique to you.

Everyone has a unique microbiome, even identical twins. This uniqueness can, in part, explain why a diet that is ‘healthy’ for one person, can sometimes be harmful (or at least not ideal) for another.

About this test

Following your consultation you will take your test home and collect a sample. This will be sent to the lab and results available in just a few weeks, sometimes sooner.

Your results can then be interpreted by our nutritional therapist and guidance given on what to do next.

If parasitic pathogens are identified then one of our clinicians can prescribe appropriate treatment.
