Stool Microbiome testing (GI MAP, Gut Zoomer, Biomefx):
DNA based stool analysis. Looks for bacterial diversity, yeast, viruses, parasites, H. pylori, and metabolic, genetic and immune markers. Please not that there are lots of limitations and nuances involved with microbiome testing, therefore we like to discuss all of this in detail before you decide this is the right choice for you. There is still a lot we don't know about the microbiome, so testing is not always useful.
Who is this test for? People with digestive issues, autoimmune diseases, trouble losing weight, unexplained fatigue, and hormonal imbalances.
Tests vitamin and mineral levels in your blood and in your cells to see how your body is or isn't using the micronutrients you are consuming. Intracellular testing provides a snap shot of the past 4-6 months. Knowing both your extracellular and intracellular micronutrient levels are key to a thorough understanding of your nutritional requirements at a foundational level, which may contribute to your risk for disease, while simultaneously and positively impacting your overall health and well-being.
