INTRODUCING THE GI-MAP
Optimal Health — It All Starts with the GI-MAPTM
Overwhelmingly, research indicates that gut health impacts overall health. The gut microbiome, in particular, plays a critical role in mediating the effects of diet and other factors on health, including digestive, immune, metabolic and neuroendocrine functions. Assessing GI health with the proper tools can help us get to the root cause of your chronic illness.
The GI-MAP (GI-Microbial Assay Plus) is unique in the field of comprehensive stool testing. It relies exclusively on quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) technology to detect parasites, bacteria, fungi, and more, by targeting the specific DNA of the organisms tested.
In simple language, instead of one person looking down a microscope at your poo hoping to find something, your stool sample is assessed for DNA fragments from these onboard organisms. This makes this test so valuable as it finds who is there and at what level. It also assess fats in your stool, pancreatic enzyme function, H pylori, zonulin levels (indication of leaky gut) plus so much more.
We find this to be one of the most comprehensive tools to date in knowing what is causing disruption to your health.
Who Should Have the GI-MAP Comprehensive Stool Analysis Done?
GI-MAP Allows for the Personalised Treatment Protocols
Almost every patient can benefit from a GI-MAP gut health assessment. Some patients are looking to achieve optimal health, while other patients have been chronically ill and frustrated without a diagnosis for years.
Conditions where GI-MAP testing can support clinical diagnosis and protocol development include:
- Autoimmune diseases
- Digestive complaints, diarrhoea or constipation
- Brain fog
- Inflammatory conditions
- Skin problems like acne and psoriasis
- Mood disorders, depression, and anxiety
- Diabetes and weight loss issues
