Before we introduce you to our GI Map test, we want to tell you about our client Taylor and share how her former struggles with bloating and abdominal cramps led her to Cambiati Wellness. In this video, she discusses her journey toward optimal digestion with one of our nutritionists after doing the Gut Microbiome Test and associated protocol. It’s a fascinating watch, and just might inspire you to tackle your own gut woes. (Spoiler alert: She’s feeling better than she has in years, with virtually no more digestive issues!)

She shares some symptoms that you might be able to relate to, including pain and feeling like she was 6 months pregnant even though she knew she was not! She knew instinctively that something was wrong with her gut but didn’t know what the real issue was. She was drawn to Cambiati’s approach of getting to the root cause rather than using medication as a Band-Aid or hearing that “everything was fine” from doctors when she certainly didn’t feel fine.

Tired of getting no real answers, she came to Cambiati Wellness because of our more functional/integrative approach. She thought she might have some food allergies or sensitivities, and after discussing her symptoms and concerns, we recommended our Gut Microbiome test, which ended up being the solution she needed. See if her story resonates–if so, it just might work for you, too!

Now, on to you…

Why?

Our Gut Microbiome Test looks for some of the following gut concerns:

  • “Good” and “bad” bacteria
  • Gluten sensitivity
  • Leaky gut
  • H. pylori
  • Digestive function
  • The health of your gut immune system
  • Parasites
  • Infections
  • Your gut’s ability to detoxify
  • And much more…

Our gut is our body’s security guard and the first line of defense, allowing in beneficial nutrients and keeping out harmful invaders. When this protective lining is weakened from things like antibiotics, stress, and processed foods, this can allow the gut to become a breeding ground for parasites, fungus, yeast, infections, and other issues–super gross, we know.

Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay Plus (GI-MAP) tests the microbiome and identifies microbes that could be causing abnormal microbial balance, contributing to a variety of different symptoms. The microbiome is an intricate system that has trillions of bacteria which can affect everything from immunity, mood, and metabolism. Each person’s microbiome is very unique, and this test identifies specific pathogenic bacteria, commensal bacteria, opportunistic pathogens, fungi, viruses, and parasites within the individual’s gut. GI Map is a comprehensive test that uses DNA technology to measure levels of both the “good” and “bad” bacteria in your gut, a crucial and delicate balance for overall health. The role of this bacteria affects us on many different levels, making it very important to pay close attention to our gut health.

So how exactly does the GI Map test work? This specific testing method separates the DNA into single strands and measures even the tiniest amounts of DNA found in the stool sample. This differs from most of the tests on the market that rely on cultures, which can grow or decay after collection and doesn’t accurately represent the sample at the time it was collected. By using DNA to analyze rather than cultures, it is much more accurate and representative of the microbial populations in the individual’s gastrointestinal tract.

Once we’re armed with the information gathered from the test, we can develop a protocol to help you safely eliminate these unhealthy imbalances and work to repair, replace and reinoculate your gut with the right mix of nutrients. The test also looks at certain types of fungus, yeast, and infections (triple eww), as well as allows us to identify leaky gut–a condition that triggers many of the symptoms listed above.  By identifying the bad guys in the gut, it will essentially keep your immune system in tip-top shape and YOU as healthy as possible.
