Gut Microbiome

Guiding a Healthier…Gut!

Did you know that the balance of bacteria in your gut microbiome may be disrupting your health? Do you experience bloating, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain, or your dinner feeling like it takes a long time to digest? Have you been diagnosed with a digestive issue?

Research is continuing to show that gut health is extremely important in overall health and its components.

What is Gut Microbiome?

Your body is full of trillions of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. They are collectively known as the microbiome. While some bacteria are associated with disease, others are actually extremely important for your immune system, heart, weight and many other aspects of health.

This article on Healthline is a good guide to the gut microbiome and explains why it’s so important for your health.

What is Microbiome Testing?

BiomeFx is a functional microbiome analysis of your stool that is unique in that it uses the most advanced and accurate technology. It evaluates pathogens (bad bacteria) that disrupt our health, as well as probiotic bacteria (good bacteria). Good bacteria restore balance in the body, supporting our immune system and controlling inflammation.

Other companies do rRNA sequencing and look at the total abundance, but they do not look at the functional analysis of the bacteria.

Have Digestive Issues and Tried Everything?

Microbiome testing helps us analyze how the function of your gut works. Testing can be used for anyone that is curious about their microbiome, or someone who wants to improve their health. This service can also be used to help with digestive issues or chronic conditions. Knowing what is going on in your gut just might be the answer you have been looking for!

How Can a Dietitian Help with Microbiome Testing?

Microbiome TestingOnly preferred practitioners like the Registered Dietitian Nutritionists at The Nutrition Professionals can order a BiomeFx Stool Kit. You cannot order this accurate microbiome test directly as a patient, but equally a doctor does not need to order it.

BiomeFx provides a detailed analysis of your gut microbiome and with our expert knowledge we can help you find the foods that will help change your gut biome for the better. Once the results of your home stool test come in, as dietitians we can look at the makeup of the gut flora and figure out how to change your diet to help maintain the microbiome and treat chronic conditions.

The microbiome test must be accompanied by a visit with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who will educate you on the importance of the gut microbiome, and how good nutrition can help restore balance and improve your health in just five days! The visit will also include a review of your results and an individualized nutrition plan to meet your needs.
