Who should take the test?
Are you suffering from chronic diseases? Concerned about your increased susceptibility for infections? Perhaps you have just completed an antibiotics therapy?
Gut flora is the complex community of microorganisms that live in the digestive tracts of humans and animals. The healthier and more balanced our gut flora is, the healthier we are. A disturbed gut flora, however, can be the cause of many diseases – whether allergies, autoimmune diseases, frequent infections, rheumatism or cancer. Even overweight is sometimes associated with a disturbance of the gut flora. Above all, frequent intake of antibiotics damage the gut flora sustainably. A comprehensive health prevention therefore always includes the development of a healthy gut flora.
The test analyzes the values of the following analytes:
- Proteus sp.
- Klebsiella sp.
- Enterobacter sp.
- Citrobacter sp.
- Pseudomonas sp.
- Other aerobic bacteria
- Bifidobacterium sp.
- Bacteroides sp.
- Lactobacillus sp.
- Clostridium sp.
- Candida albicans
- Candida sp.
- Geotrichum sp.
Our Gut Flora & Biome Analysis may be interesting for people who have just completed an antibiotics therapy, people suffering from chronic diseases or an increased susceptibility for infections and all those who just want to actively do something for the preservation of their health.
How does it work?
You collect the samples at home, send them back to us and we will provide you with your level of each analyte and whether your level falls within the reference ranges for your age. In addition to that, the results include graphs showing whether your are in the “green” (=normal/healthy) or “red” (=too high/low) area, making it easy to understand the results.
What will my results tell me?
Your results will provide detailed information about whether your intestinal bacteria, candida albicans, candida spec., geotrichum spec. and mold levels are normal, low, or high compared to reference ranges in your age group. You can then discuss the results with your doctor or health practitioner, who can give you further guidance and treatment recommendations.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
We always recommend the discussion of the mailed results with your doctor or practitioner. Although we do not offer therapy service ourselves, we will gladly assist you in finding a suitable therapist in your area. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions?
