- Both practitioner and client receive a copy of the test results and a letter of recommendations
The CMM tests for the following (please note that for an exhaustive list, see the sample report):
The presence of blood, mucous and food remnants including starches, meat and vegetable fibres, and fat particles.
Beneficial Bacteria (also referred to as Probiotic Bacteria such as Bifidobacterium Longum, Escherichia Coli)
Pathogenic Bacteria (harmful bacteria such as Campylobacter, Salmonella, Yersinia)
Yeasts (such as Candida Albicans, Rhodotorula)
Parasites (such as Giardia Lamblia, Cryptosporidium)
Antibiotic Sensitivities (such as Amoxicillin, Augmentin, Trimethoprim
The Complete Microbiome Map is an advanced non-invasive diagnostic tool for assessing gastrointestinal function. As this combines a large number of tests that assess the function of the GUT (gastrointestinal tract), a comprehensive picture of your client's gut health will be formed.
The analysis investigates digestion, metabolism, absorption, metabolic markers, pancreatic function, the balance of beneficial bacteria and the presence of harmful bacteria, yeast and parasites & worms.
Symptoms & Conditions Associated with Abnormal Gut Function
Food allergies and sensitivities
Inflammatory bowel disease
Irritable bowel syndrome
The gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) has three main functions:
To digest and absorb important nutrients for the healthy growth, cell repair and function
To act as a barrier to keep harmful substances, antigens and microorganisms from entering the blood
Elimination of waste products and toxins
The GI tract influences not only GI health. It is also known as the ‘second brain’ and affects the entire body.
Within the gastrointestinal tract more than 500 different bacterial species, in excess of 10 organisms per gram of wet weight, can be detected. These bacteria also play a key role in digestion, nutrition, pathogen defence and immune system development. When the function and interplay within this complex system is disturbed, ill-health can easily develop.
Multiple areas can influence this fine balance including digestion, absorption, the location, number and specific species of bacteria, parasitic infection, as well as epithelial integrity (lining of the gut) and inflammation.
Typical symptoms on why we order this test;
Blood in the stool
Mucus in the stool
However, other conditions not typically recognised, but associated with gastrointestinal health, include;
These conditions may result from ‘leaky gut’ and the subsequent exposure to foreign particles which may trigger local and systemic immune and inflammatory issues.
