The Importance of Your Gut
Believe it or not, your health is tied to your gut, which is essentially your body’s first line of defense against harmful bacteria or invaders. Contrary to popular belief, your gut isn’t just the answer to your pooping issues, but it can also hold the key to seemingly unrelated problems, such as fatigue, anxiety, migraines, skin breakouts, etc.
Your gut allows beneficial nutrients to enter your body and protects it from various pathogens. This is why when this protective lining weakens due to stress, processed foods, and antibiotics, it allows the gut to become a breeding ground for fungus, parasites, yeast, infections, and other issues.
What Is Gut Microbiome Testing?
A Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay Plus (GI-MAP) essentially tests your gut microbiome and identifies microbes that can cause abnormal microbial balance, leading to various symptoms. Your microbiome is an intricate system with trillions of bacteria that can affect your mood, immunity, and metabolism.
Each individual has a unique gut microbiome. The GI-MAP test identifies specific commensal bacteria, pathogenic bacteria, opportunistic pathogens, viruses, fungi, and parasites within your gut. This comprehensive test uses DNA technology to measure levels of harmful and beneficial bacteria in your gut.
How Does GI-Map Work?
The GI-MAP test separates your DNA into single strands and measures the minutest amounts of DNA found in your stool sample. This test differs from most tests that rely on cultures, which can decay or grow after collection. It’s why those tests aren’t as reliable or accurate. However, by using DNA rather than culture to analyze gut health, GI-Map testing is highly accurate and a much more reliable method to check the microbial populations in your gastrointestinal tract.
How Can Cambiati Wellness Help You?
Once we have the information we need from your GI-Map test, we can develop a unique protocol to help you eliminate any unhealthy imbalances found in your microbiome as safely as possible. We will also work with you to replace, repair, and re-inoculate your gut with the right balance of nutrients. With your test results, we can also rule out any fungi, yeast, or other infections, as well as identify leaky gut. By identifying the problem areas, we can essentially keep your immune system in optimal condition and help you attain your health goals!
