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 GIT (gastrointestinal tract), a comprehensive picture of your 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 can be found. These bacteria also play a key role in digestion, nutrient absorption, pathogen defence and immune system development. When the microbiome is out of balance, every part of the body can be affected, including the brain.

Typical symptoms on why we order this test;
Blood in the stool
