What do you know about your microbiome?
There are many circumstances when having a digestive assessment like a GI MAP (Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay Plus) could be valuable. A GI MAP is unique in that it looks at the DNA of the organisms in a stool sample. This way, we can take a good look at what’s in your microbiome by assessing the probiotic balance, opportunistic bacteria, viruses, parasites and blood markers of functional digestive health, through the sample. We love this test in IBS, autoimmune disease of the digestive tract, diverticulitis and simply in digestive discomfort with previous significant antibiotic use or digestive infection.
This tool is highly useful in our clinic. If you would like to speak with one of our naturopathic doctors further about this test, give our clinic a call at 604-734-7760.
