GI-MAP with Zonulin (Gut Health)
The GI-MAP is unique in the field of comprehensive stool testing, in order to detect parasites, bacteria, fungi, and more, which contribute to many chronic health conditions.
Research overwhelmingly indicates that gut health impacts overall health. The gut microbiome (population of microbes), in particular, plays a critical role in mediating the effects of diet and other factors on health, including digestive, immune, metabolic and neuro-endocrine functions. Assessing Gastrointestinal (GI) health with the proper tools can help to identify the root cause of chronic illness.
The GI-MAP (Microbial Assay Plus) is unique in the field of comprehensive stool testing, in order to detect parasites, bacteria, fungi, and more.
Who Should Have the GI-MAP Comprehensive Stool Analysis Done?
Almost every person can benefit from a GI-MAP gut health assessment. Some people may be looking to achieve optimal health, while other people may 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
Can Infants and Children Benefit from the GI-MAP?
Yes. The GI-MAP is commonly used in infants and children, and can provide insight into conditions related to Attentional Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism, and digestive complaints.
What is Reported on GI-MAP Test Results?
The GI-MAP was designed to detect microbes that may be disturbing normal microbial balance or contributing to illness as well as indicators of digestion, absorption, inflammation, and immune function.
GI-MAP Allows for the Personalized Treatment Plans and Informative Retests
The GI-MAP's accuracy and reliability allows us to create personalized treatment protocols to address gut dysfunction based on which infections are urgent, which areas of the gut are already optimized, and which areas should be addressed after an infection is resolved.
Additionally, the quantification offers a remarkable ability to see how treatment modalities are working because a retest after treatment can show whether a parasite has resolved, dysbiosis has improved, and more.
Gone are the days of blindly taking probiotics or antibiotics, without actually knowing what gut-microbes we are trying to increase or kill-off, which can actually do more harm than good.
