Get the whole picture of your gut microbiome
With the most comprehensive microbiome test available in NZ
As the understanding of the role of the gut microbiome develops, so too has the technology to evaluate it.
While growing bacteria in petri dishes is still the stuff of school bio labs, that’s almost the extent of the usefulness of stool culture tests outside of determining what antibiotics you need to treat them.
We’ve evolved from culture, to PCR (polymerase chain reaction), 16SrRNA (or DNA) to “shotgun” metagenomics. This you can not only see everything* that’s there, but the analysis of the bacteria’s genes, means we get data on what they can do!
So, if you have diarrhoea, constipation, bloating or gas or some other digestive problem, and you’ve had things like SiBO, “-ose” intolerances ruled out, then testing your stool microbiome is recommended. Yet yours underway today.
NOW, you can learn not only your unique microbiome, but how it might be affecting your health, and how you can achieve a better balance between desirable and less desirable microorganisms in your gut. From a smear of your poop.
Price includes shipping (getting your kit, and getting the test to Australia) and the lab fee to run your sample. An appointment with one of our naturopaths is required to discuss your results. Results typically take about 4 weeks from Friday following the day you send your test.
