Worried About Your Gut Health?
The GI-MAP (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.
Almost every client can benefit from a GI-MAP gut health assessment. Some clients are looking to achieve optimal health, while other clients have been chronically ill and frustrated without a diagnosis for years.
Some conditions that warrant testing are:
Digestive complaints, diarrhea or constipation
Skin problems, like acne and psoriasis
Mood disorders, depression, and anxiety
Diabetes and weight loss issues

protects the brain cells against the potential damage caused by free radicals.
