Looking for a Comprehensive Gut Assessment? Look no further than the 4-Pillar Gut Profile.

The 4-Pillar Gut Profile was designed to provide a comprehensive investigation of the gut microbiome using four key functional diagnostic tests. Providing the tools to build a solid foundation of investigation takes much of the guesswork out of systemic imbalances, if the bases are covered then a structured and thorough correction plan can be implemented.

Pillar 1: Complete Microbiome Mapping -Is a quantitative PCR (qPCR) stool based test that screens for a comprehensive range of microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, and worms that provides you with a true quantitative detection value to correct when certain microorganisms become dysbiotic or otherwise causing health issues. In addition to this an extensive range of GIT chemistry tests are provided within the test.

Pillar 2: IgG96 Food Sensitivity Testing -Eliminating the offending foods will create a stronger mucosal immunity. Testing for adverse food reactions is useful for individuals who suspect that a food is responsible for causing their symptoms, but cannot quite identify which food(s). The presence of circulating antibodies may affect each patient differently. Circulating IgG food antibodies are not diagnostic for a specific condition, but indicate an immune response to that food.

Pillar 3. Intestinal Permeability – Assessment for leaky gut provides the support of nutrients that might be compromised as a result of a dysregulated microbiome whether from an overgrowth of a pathogen or a particular food intolerance. Providing both fat soluble and water soluble vitamins for our micro-nutrient support network will benefit so many biological functions.

Pillar 4. SIBO Lactulose Breath Test –The Lactulose Breath Test for SIBO is designed to take a three-hour picture of how the bacteria in your intestinal system are functioning. When bacteria digest food, they produce gas. It’s when some bacteria that normally live in your lower intestine end up living in your small intestine. The small intestine isn’t set up for these bacteria, so they can cause a lot of problems. When bacteria digest food, they give off Hydrogen and Methane gasses. When these gasses are in your small intestine, they can cause a multitude of problems and symptoms
