Do you want a comprehensive gut health check using an advanced stool test that offers an in depth insight and analysis of your digestive function, inflammation/infections in the gut and the health of your gut microbiome?
Or do you want to address issues such as bloating, irregular bowel habits, constipation, loose stools, parasites, bacterial/fungal overgrowth?
Or perhaps you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), SIFO (small intestinal fungal overgrowth), Inflammatory Bowel disease (IBD) and you would like a holistic approach to manage these conditions?
Our Gut Check packages are perfect for you.
We are one of few IBS clinics that recognises that managing IBS is much greater than simply taking antispasmodic medications and avoiding certain foods.
Additionally, you may think you have IBS, but in actual fact you may have SIBO/ SIFO or LIBO (large intestinal bacterial overgrowth). The symptoms overlap and both can coexist. We have access to testing that will give you a more accurate understanding of whether your IBS symptoms are actually relating to IBS or SIBO.
A large Meta Analysis of 25 studies, (a meta-analysis is a study of multiple studies) conducted on IBS and SIBO in 2018 - including 3,192 patients with IBS and 3,320 controls found that actually on average 35% i.e. over a third of patients diagnosed with IBS actually had SIBO. SIBO has it’s unique treatments so without knowing the cause of your symptoms you could potentially be missing out on treatment specific to you.
In many cases you can improve your gut health by simple measures such as pre/probiotics, increasing fibre, and incorporating more vegetables into your diet. However, if SIBO is the underlying problem then these changes might actually make your symptoms worse! You may be pouring fuel to the fire! Correctly identifying whether the issues you are facing are due to IBS or SIBO or a variety of other causes will allow us to formulate an evidence-based treatment plan specific to you.
