STOOL and SIBO Testing

GI Effects


Gastrointestinal assessments have been very limited in the past.  Only a small number of analytes were available for functional measurement, microbiome testing did not exist, and parasite testing was notoriously iffy.  Access to functional tests, such as the Genova GI Effects and SIBO Profile is now simple through Dr Joe at the Grassroots Naturopathic clinic. 

GI Effects is an advanced stool assessment that provides immediate, actionable clinical information for the management of gastrointestinal health. Utilizing cutting-edge technologies and biomarkers, this profile offers valuable insight into digestive function, intestinal inflammation, parasites, the metabolome and the gut microbiome. This allows valuable insight into dysbiosis, inflammation and overall gut health.  The detailed report outlines five areas of concern, including inflammation, dysbiosis, infection, as well as the many analytes and bacterial assessments. maldigestion and metabolite balance.
