 Microbiome Health

The Microbiome

Your patient’s gastrointestinal (GI) tract hosts a unique community of over a 100 trillion microbiota, referred to collectively as the gut microbiome (pronounced: mī-krō-ˈbī-ˌōm). A healthy, well-balanced gut microbiome is essential for digestion and nutrient absorption. Each bacterial group in the gut plays an important role in your patient’s wellness, so a diverse gut microbiome is also crucial for overall and long-term health.

When key beneficial bacteria are missing from the microbiome, or the different bacterial groups aren’t present in the right amounts, the resulting imbalance can disrupt normal physiological functions, and trigger inflammation. Extensive published literature links dysbiosis with dozens of chronic illnesses in all organ systems, such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), atopic dermatitis, hyperactive immune function, diabetes, depression,among others.

What We Do

Test your patient’s gut health to understand the underlying cause of microbiome-associated symptoms and customized recommendations for how to resolve it.
Relieve your patient’s symptoms while waiting for the test results from the test (results take 10-15 days).
Restore: Create a treatment plan specific to your patients results, using microbiome restorative therapies.

An imbalanced gut microbiome may contain only a few different bacterial groups. When key bacteria groups are missing, there will be changes in normal metabolic and physiological functions resulting in the development of a variety of clinical symptoms.
