Diagnostic Solutions Stool Test
In recent decades, DNA analysis has transformed the field of microbiology. More than ever before, we are keenly aware of the health benefits and disease risks related to microorganisms that inhabit the GI tract. Previous culture techniquesleave up to 50% of bacterial species virtually invisible!
The GI Microbial Assay Plus (GI-MAP™) was designed to assess a patient’s microbiome from a single stool sample, with particular attention to microbes that cause disease, disrupt normal microbial balance and contribute to disturbances in GI flora that lead to illness.
At Holistique, our Naturopathic Doctors utilize only the very best testing to determine our patients’ disease risks. This state-of-the-art stool test offers our patients the opportunity to take the test in the privacy of their homes and then mail to the lab. The results take about 4-6 weeks and the comprehensive information is thoroughly reviewed by our doctors. The cost of the test is $399 and is not covered by insurance companies.
