What is the Microbiome?
Healing Leaky Gut and the Microbiome Naturally
No Guts, No Glory
Utilizing state-of-the-art technology with the GI-MAP DNA Analysis and other tests to find out the state of your microbiome is a game-changer. Knowing the status of your probiotics, enzymes to break down foods, levels of bacterial and fungal overgrowth, parasites, hidden H. Pylori, inflammation and leaky gut gives you the information you need to understand why you feel bad.
Symptoms of Microbiome Imbalance
The Microbiome of the gut must be addressed in order to heal fatigue, hormones, toxicity, immune system or neurotransmitter (mood) issues.
- Irritable Bowel
- Food Allergies
- Frequent nausea
- Diarrhea, urgent stool
- Blood in stool
- Seasonal allergies
- H. Pylori and ulcers
- Candida and Fungal overgrowth
- Gallbladder problems
- Migraine Headaches
- Cluster Headaches
- Leaky Gut
What is the Microbiome?
The microbiome is defined as the total healthy probiotic organisms that inhabit our entire gastrointestinal tract.
The gut microbiome plays a vital role in your health and symptoms of fatigue. Your GI tract…
- Extracts nutrition from foods and delivers it to cells
- Identifies toxic elements and pushes them out of the body
- Stimulates production of neurotransmitters that affect mood and energy
- Supports immune health, anti-aging, and reducing inflammation
Dysbiosis means that the complex microbiome community is no longer balanced. This could mean you have overgrowth of good bacteria (yes, this causes problems, too), or you have bacteria which belongs in the colon migrating to the small intestine, or finally pathogens like bacteria, fungus, viruses and more may have taken dominance in the guts.
All of these situations cause inflammation in the GI Tract, which then leads to inflammatory conditions in your entire body. These inflammatory conditions can eventually become chronic depression, Irritable Bowel, PMS/PMDD, menopausal problems, overweight issues, reflux, vomiting, dry eyes, eczema and psoriasis, Lupus, autoimmune conditions, diabetes, high blood pressure and so much more.
Another term, leaky gut, means that the intestines have become overly permeable. This problem is very prevalent in most patients that have any chronic symptoms, and allows larger food or pathogenic particles to migrate from the G.I. tract into the blood stream.
This improper migration elicits a strong reaction from the immune system, immediately followed by inflammation and activated antibodies. These activated antibodies are what show up on food allergy tests.
