Gut Microbiome

From the inside out

Going Deeper Into That Gut Feeling

 

The human gut microbiome is a complex ecosystem of symbiotic bacteria and microorganisms that live in our small and large intestines. Recent research has revealed that the gut microbiome plays a pivotal role in our overall health. It affects almost every system in the body, including the digestive system, immune system, and cardiovascular system. Studies have also linked gut health to a number of diseases such as diabetes, obesity, irritable bowel syndrome, and colon cancer.

 

The WL&H Microbiomics Panel uses sophisticated shotgun metagenomics sequencing technology to map the strains and species of bacteria, fungi, phages, parasites that make up your unique gut microbiome in unprecedented detail. It provides detailed insights into the microorganisms inhabiting your gut and how they function to affect your overall bodily health.

Through detailed dietary counselling, discover ways in which various foods and lifestyle changes can improve the balance of the microorganisms in your gut to achieve overall health, immunity and wellbeing.
