Gut Microbiome

Test, Don’t Guess.

The Dutch Test provides a detailed insight into reproductive and adrenal hormones and their metabolites to discover the root cause of hormonal imbalance that a standard hormone panel doesn’t reveal.

The BiomeFx Test is a functional microbiome analysis of your stool and is unique in that it uses the most advanced and accurate technology to evaluate pathogens (bad bacteria) that disrupt health to cause dysbiosis and analyzes the amount of the beneficial bacteria species that improve health.

Knowing what is going on with the balance of your gut microbiome and your hormones might be the answer you are looking for!

Why the Dutch Test?

  1. The Dutch test is more comprehensive than both the saliva test and the serum hormone test.
  2. It is easy, effective, and done in the privacy of your own home.
  3. It does not require a doctor’s order and is mailed directly to you.
  4. The process is to collect 4-5 dried urine samples during a 24 hour period. The kit is mailed by you directly back to the lab with a pre-paid shipping label.

Why the BiomeFx Test?

  1. Only preferred practitioners like the Registered Dietitian Nutritionists at The Nutrition Professionals can order the BiomeFx test.
  2. You collect a stool sample in the privacy of your home which is then sent to the lab for accurate testing to analyze your gut microbiome.
  3. Test results will be available 2-4 weeks after being sent to the lab for testing.

What is the gut microbiome?

Your GI tract is full of trillions of bacteria, viruses and fungi.  They are collectively known as the microbiome.  While some gut bacteria are associated with disease, others are extremely important for your immune system and to produce the healthy gut bacteria needed for energy, mood and overall health.

The balance of bacteria in your gut may be disrupting your health.  This imbalance is called dysbiosis and it can be improved through diet and lifestyle changes.

What is hormonal imbalance?

Hormones are the chemical messengers for our body.  When you have a hormone imbalance that means you either have too little or too much of a particular one. Progesterone, estrogen, androgens and their metabolites need to be in balance. As do our adrenal hormones such as cortisone and DHEA.  Since hormones play a big role in our health even small changes in the wrong direction can cause problems.

How are they related? 

Gut dysbiosis may contribute to estrogen dominance, in other words, hormone imbalance.  When the balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut is disrupted it’s common to experience gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating, gas, abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea but sometimes we don’t!  Gut dysbiosis can show up in other ways too!  Such as hormonal imbalances, skin conditions, anxiety and a weakened immune system. 

When it comes to hormone balance the gut microbiota works to convert estrogens to its active forms assisting the body in maintaining good hormonal health.  Estrogen dominance is influenced by gut health but shows up in symptoms such as acne, swelling, tender breasts, heavy and/or painful periods, mood disturbances, weight gain, anxiety, infertility issues, insomnia and PMS/PMDD. 

This program is designed to determine the root cause of your hormonal imbalances that  are related to your gut health. 

Hormone Imbalance

What can you expect from our program?

It is one thing to know your results but it is crucial to work with a nutrition expert who can interpret your results and develop an individualized supplement, diet and lifestyle regimen that relieves symptoms along with providing strategies during follow up appointments that make those changes sustainable.

  1. An initial nutrition assessment with an RDN to discuss medical history and current diet and lifestyle habits. Your microbiome test and Dutch test will be ordered at this visit. RDN will give direction as to the order of the tests to be performed.
  2. Once test results are complete you will have a one hour follow up assessment with an RDN of your test results with diet/supplement/lifestyle recommendations.
  3. Follow up will be six 30 minute appointments to help you make necessary adjustments to your plan based on food intake and symptoms.
