Our advanced gut health test screens for overgrowth of bacteria, presence of fungi, parasites and viruses, all of which can manifest in symptoms such as:

  • ADHD
  • Anxiety
  • Bloating
  • Brain fog
  • Depression
  • Allergies
  • Gastro-Intestinal disturbances like IBS
  • Insomnia and sleep apnea

 

As part of our testing, we also examine Fecal Zonulin.  Zonulin is a protein secreted by intestinal cells that regulates intercellular tight junctions. Tight junctions are the connections between epithelial cells that make up the gastrointestinal lining. Zonulin increases intestinal permeability and is considered a biomarker for permeability.

Zonulin is high in the following immune-mediated conditions:

Autoimmune diseases

  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Coeliac disease
  • Epstein-Barr Virus
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Systemic lupus erythematous
  • Type 1 diabetes
Neurological diseases
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy
  • Schizophrenia

 

Cancers

  • Brain (gliomas)
  • Breast
  • Lung adenocarcinoma
  • Ovarian
  • Pancreatic
