GI-MAP Gut Testing

The GI-MAP stands for Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay Plus— it’s one of the newest additions to the list of the most sought-after gut health tests today. 

 

If you are struggling with digestion issues like:

  • SIBO (Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)

  • Suspected H. pylori infection

  • Bloating

  • Gas

  • Constipation or diarrhea

  • IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome)

  • Dysbiosis

  • Acid reflux

It's likely due to an imbalance in your gut bacteria or your microbiome.

The microbiome is complex and highly individualized.

The GI-MAP tests for the following so you can get a complete picture of your gut:

  • Normal bacterial flora and opportunistic bacteria

  • Bacterial, viral, and parasitic pathogens

  • Fungi and yeast

  • Inflammation

  • Immune response

  • H. pylori with virulence factors

  • Antibiotic resistance genes

  • Parasitic worms

HOW THE TEST WORKS

  1. I will order the GI-MAP test to be sent straight to your doorstep in 5-7 business days.

  2. You will take the test in the privacy of your own home and send it back to the lab.

  3. I will be notified when your results come in (10-12 business days) and then we will hop on a consultation so I can interpret your results for you and break down exactly what they mean. Please allow about one month from the time you send in your test sample to the time we have your consult.

WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS TEST FROM THE STANDARD TESTS DOCTORS RUN AND THE COMMON PROTOCOL NATUROPATHS USE?

This unique test uses just one stool sample and cutting edge, Quantitative PCR technology with high sensitivity to take a deep dive inside our microbiome.

There, an assessment is made that focuses on the specific microbes that tend to disturb the normal balance of our microbiome, triggering issues in our gastrointestinal flora and causing digestion problems as well as other chronic health conditions.

The GI-MAP test gives you the full picture of your digestive health.

All this is from the comfort and privacy of your own home— no doctor visits necessary.

Testimonials

First of all words have not yet been created to express how amazing Ellie is. She is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Ellie has taught me so much about nutrition and if she can teach me a person who knew just about nothing about it she can teach anybody. She understands people don't always have time to do certain things and offers great alternatives to help you reach your goal. If you ever have a question she always has a detailed answer to help you. I could not be happier with all she has done for me.

B.G.

Ellie is AWESOME!!! I'm in my fifties and began to struggle with my weight. By the time I contacted Ellie I felt such shame so it was imperative I work with a compassionate and empathetic individual. She made it clear from day one there was no judgement. I felt motivated after our sessions as she was extremely encouraging and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Ellie as her professionalism, expertise, and compassion are qualities I value in a nutritionist and coach.
