Why Look at the Gut?

Research is showing that the gut not only plays a key role in our digestion and nutrient absorption, but also our emotions, sleep, skin, hormones, immune function, neurologic health, and overall wellness. We now know 80% of our immune system is living in our gut, our gut and brain are directly tied through the gut-brain connection, and about 95% of our serotonin is produced in the gut. We have 500 species and three pounds of bacteria in our gut, good and bad. When the good microbes get offset by bad microbes this causes illness in a multitude of ways. We have more bacteria living on and in our body than we do human cells. These microbes are vitally important and called our microbiome.

What is a GI-MAP Test?

The GI Microbial Assay Plus (or GI-MAP™) test is a DNA-based stool test that provides a detailed analysis of your gut microbiome. This test analyzes the levels of both good and bad bacteria, parasites, viruses, worms, fungi, as well as immune and digestive markers in your gut. It also allows us to look for markers of inflammation in your gut along with signs of leaky gut syndrome. As we analyze the results of your test, we focus on eliminating microbes that may be the culprit for a variety of gut imbalances that lead to illnesses all over our body. This “map” allows us to customize a program that will help restore balance to the biome specifically for your gut.
I have been a Registered Nurse since 2009 with over a decade in tertiary care and Emergency Nursing. Four years ago, I decided to leave traditional health care and start a wellness business focusing on identifying and addressing root causes of illness. My expertise focuses on using natural alternatives to facilitate healing and wellness. I partner with a robust wellness team holding a diverse background to offer well rounded protocols and expert knowledge.

Here are the five steps we will take together:

To be thorough, I need to learn about your health history and current lifestyle. I also want to know about your wellness goals so they can be addressed as I put together your 90-day protocol. You will gain access to the questionnaire as soon as you have purchased your package.

Once you have completed the questionnaire, we will mail you the test. The kit has easy to follow directions on how to collect the sample and mail it back to Diagnostic Solutions Lab. You will pay the lab directly for their analysis of your sample (check with your insurance, as some plans will cover or reimburse the test).

Once you mail the test back to the lab it will take 2-3 weeks to get the results and for us to formulate your protocol.

During the consultation, we will go over your test results in detail and explain your custom protocol based on your results. Your plan will include diet recommendations, probiotics, herbal supplements, and essential oils to correct the specific imbalances highlighted by your GI Map. The protocol specifically addresses the imbalances in your gut by removing the bad pathogens, replacing them with good ones, and alleviating any inflammation or digestive problems.

During your 90-day protocol, we will stay connected to review your progress, address any symptoms that may arise, and make any necessary adjustments. Most people see drastic improvement before the end of the protocol.

We recommend re-testing after the first 90-day phase to see how your test results have changed. Once we analyze the results of your second test, we can recommend a maintenance protocol. Many clients find it beneficial to complete annual or bi-annual GI mapping to stay on top of their gut health. Gut healing can take time and may take up to one year to have full improvement depending on your health history.
