YourGutMap - Microbiome Testing

What is a microbiome?

YourGutMap - Gut Microbiome Test Kit

The microbiome is a collection of microbes such as bacteria, fungi and viruses that naturally live in our body. YourGutMap – Microbiome testing can help you understand the Microbiome living in your digestive system.

Modern diets, lifestyles, and medication can consequently cause imbalances in the microbiome – which are linked to chronic inflammation and metabolic dysfunction – key influences of many health problems.

What does the testing involve?

  1. Simple at home stool sample swab.
  2. Complete a simple 3 minute health quiz.
  3. Pre paid return postage to the Lab.
  4. Lab genetic analysis (3 weeks) – Through a mRNA genetic sequencing test, YourGutMap identifies microbiome imbalances.
  5. 30+ page health report & personal diet guide.

Health Report Example

Your Personal Diet Guide

All foods and drinks have different qualities that affect your microbiome (good and bad).

Your personal diet guide will allow you to naturally rebalance and optimise your microbiome by making simple adjustments to your diet, based on analysis of 300+ foods and drinks.

Furthermore your personal diet guide will help coach you through naturally rebalancing your gut microbiome.

Additionally this protocol can aid you with symptomatic improvements within 6 weeks. Published papers using our gut microbiome test saw the below improvements:

YourGutMap - Parasite Testing

The Digestive System and Parasites

YourGutMap - Parasite Testing

Your digestive system is home to trillions of bacteria that make up your Microbiome.

However unwanted bacteria and parasites can find their way into your gut. Whilst some parasites are harmless, others can cause health problems.

One of the most researched and prominent pathogenic bacteria is Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) which has been shown to damage tissue in the small intestine.

The YourGutMap Parasitology test is a complete screen of 22 of the most common parasites, viruses and pathogenic bacteria:

YourGutMap - Food Sensitivity Testing

What is a food sensitivity?

Food Sensitivity Kit Example

A food sensitivity is developed due to an adverse delayed response to foods that is usually caused by the immune system.

Why do food sensitivity develop?

Typically it is a sign that the foods being consumed by you are not being effectively digested and larger particles are entering the bloodstream as undigested proteins which can trigger an immune response. This simply looks to break down the larger undigested food to smaller molecules that can be absorbed. Similarly how the immune system attacks a virus to break down a pathogen. As a result of this it caused inflammation in the body that provoked symptoms. Furthermore it can be said that food sensitivity can be associated with your favourite foods those that are consumed in high quantities, but there are many other factors to consider:

  • How food is processed
  • How intensive animals are rears
  • Fertilisers used in the farming process
  • Overconsumption of antibiotics
  • Genetics
  • Stress
  • Poor gut bacteria
  • Leaky gut syndrome

How does taking a test help improve the symptoms?

Through a simple finger pricks test, we can help identify raised IgG levels against trigger foods in the diet. Therefore having a guided food elimination diet helps identify food to consume, limit or avoid being able to reduce the immune load/ inflammation in the body.  Furthermore, this would then form the basis of a three month diet plan in order to allow the symptoms to reduce.

The reaction is measured through IgG responses to foods to help overcome problems associated with adverse delayed immune reactions to food.

CheckMyPet - Microbiome Testing

Cat Microbiome Test Kit
Dog Microbiome Test Kit

Animal Microbiome

Is your pet’s gut microbiome imbalanced? Our modern day cute pets started off life in the wild, around 40,000 years ago.

This means for more than 99% of their existence, your pet’s diet looked very different compared to today.

The modern day pet’s food, treats, and human food contains a lot of ingredients that they were not exposed to for the vast majority of their existence. Is it any wonder that their digestive system doesn’t know what to do?

Furthermore your pet’s microbiome is home to trillions of different bacteria. When they are balanced correctly, it is a foundation for good health. However imbalances can easily be caused by cat or dog foods with processed ingredients, preservatives, and things your pet wouldn’t naturally consume like gluten.

The Test will Identify:

  • Microbiome Diversity & Balance – does your pet have the right balance of bacteria for their gut health?
  • A nutrition score – to find out if your pet’s current diet is varied and healthy.
  • Intestine Inflammation & Diarrhoea – does your pet have enough of the good bacteria that protects them from inflammation and diarrhoea? Or too much bad bacteria that could cause diarrhoea?
  • Butyrate Production – butyrate plays an important role in protecting your pet’s intestinal mucosa. That is a complicated scientific way of saying it helps protect your pet’s gut from harmful bacteria!
  • Harmful Bacteria – does your pet have high levels of harmful bacteria, like salmonella? 
  • Help & advice for a happy and health pet – your results also contain useful dietary information.

How do I take the test?

We only need a small swab from your pet’s poop. Either take the swab and collection tube on your next walk, or use a poo bag. Use the prepaid return envelope to send the sample to our laboratory and your will receive your results via email in 3 weeks.
