BiomeFx is a convenient at-home stool test and comprehensive microbiome health assessment tool. It provides us with precise and detailed information about your microbiome's health, composition and activities. It identifies which microorganisms are in your gut, which are missing, and how their presence (or lack thereof) affects your gut's overall health and function.  This helps paint a picture of the overall strength, resiliency and health of your microbiome. With this information, your dietitian will provide individualized nutrition and lifestyle plans to help restore balance to the microbiome, build strength and resiliency, and enhance your overall health. This plan incclude includes diet, lifestyle and supplement recommendations.

The human gut harbors 100 trillion microorganisms including bacteria, yeast, fungi, and other microbes. This diverse ecosystem influences everything from immune function and digestion to emotional well-being and so much more. That's right- the microbiome impacts not only your digestion, but also liver health and function, hormone balance, nervous system disorders, skin conditions, autoimmunity, and metabolic dysfunction.  What this means is even if you don't have noticeable GI issues, but you struggle with your weight, skin, or mood, you would benefit from this test.  An unbalanced microbiome goes way beyond stomach issues and tells us a MUCH larger story. 

A healthy microbiome has pathogens (at low levels), a strong mucosal barrier, strong tight junctions, and low mucosal inflammation. An unhealthy microbiome has inflamed intestinal cells and an excessive amount of bacteria which releases LPS (Lipopolysaccharides) otherwise known as bacterial toxins. LPS can make it's way into the blood if you have an infection, leaky gut, or follow an unhealthy diet. In the blood, LPS travels causing systemic inflammation and is a driver of chronic health conditions.  BiomeFX will allow us to see who is in the gut, what they are doing there, and if there is balance.

This test is recommended for patients exposed to the following dysbiosis (unbalanced gut) risk factors:

  • Follow the Standard American Diet

  • Special/limited diets including a low fiber diet 

  • Consumption of artificial sweeteners

  • Exposure to environmental toxins like glyphosate (heavily sprayed on our food supply)

  • Medication use (including antibiotics)

  • History of infections

  • Excessive alcohol intake
