Gut Microbiome Testing

Gut microbiome testing offers insight into the types of organisms that exist inside the gastrointestinal tract, whether beneficial or pathogenic and the health of the environment where digestion and absorption of nutrients occurs.

What is the Gut Microbiome and What is a Gut Microbiome Test?


Our body is host to many living organisms which are important for out health.

In recent years, lots of research has been done to unlock the secrets of our Gut Microbiome.

This research has shown us just how vital our gut microbiome is for not only our digestive health, but also many other aspects of our health previously though to be unrelated.

Gut microbiome testing has recently become much more accurate and is now available to naturopathic practitioners and our clients.

This testing is vital to reveal the true state of a patient’s gut microbiome health, and gives us much more targeted treatment options to get our patients feeling better faster.

Our Geelong Naturopath Olivia Barron from Living Holistic Health explains this in more detail in this video.
