Do you suffer from…
If you said yes to any of the above, then you may have an imbalance in your gut microbiome that may be contributing to your health concerns.
Why would you need to check your gut microbiome?
If even after improving your diet, your digestive symptoms haven’t shifted. The bloating, gas, diarrhoea, and discomfort has kept you frustrated, despite your healthy lifestyle choices. You may need a more specific treatment plan and nutritional approach tailored to your needs.
Planning life around your gut is a constant worry.
It’s hard to plan when you don’t know what your body is going to do or how it will feel. Your life has taken a hit - from where you go, what you do, how you eat can all be limited or restricted.
All the conventional approaches to digestive health have left you wondering whether your gut can ever be fixed. The good news is that it can! Balancing your gut microbiome can significantly improve your digestion, mood, energy, and metabolism.
Why are the bacteria in my gut important?
Bacteria perform essential functions such as digesting food and synthesising vitamins. Recent studies have also linked the microbiome to human mood and behaviour via the gut-brain axis, as well as many gut disorders, weight gain, eczema, and chronic sinusitis.
What will this analysis tell me?
What is Gut Microbiome Analysis?
The bacteria present in our gut, mouth, skin and other sites in the human body are often referred to collectively as the human Microbiome or “second genome”. Composed of more than a 100 trillion microorganisms the human microbiome outnumbers the total number of human genes by a factor of a hundred to one. This means, for every gene in your genome there are 100 bacterial genes.
Genomic technology now has the capacity to view this second genome by sequencing specific regions or variable regions in the bacterial genome. It is these variable regions that enable bacteria to be identified down to species level. Each bacterial species has a unique “fingerprint”. This means that the analysis is similar to a crime scene investigation. If the sequence is detected then that particular bacteria is present in your gut.
Elaine is able to use this information to understand how your diet and environment are affecting your bowel flora. After the analysis Elaine will be able to create a tailored nutrition plan to address any imbalances in your gut microbiome profile so you can regain your health naturally.

”Over the last 15 years I have been suffering with chronic digestive health issues such as bloating, gut pain and sensitivity to foods. It was reducing my energy levels and I couldn’t do all the activities which I used to enjoy.
After trying countless treatments from various health practitioners for my long-term gut problems without getting real results, I was searching for something different. I then heard about Elaine from a friend who had seen her. After researching Elaine’s services, I made an appointment. On meeting Elaine, I felt comfortable and confident of her knowledge and skill.
Once my Gut microbiome results returned, I had an extensive appointment with Elaine. She explained in simple terms the test results and why I was having ongoing health issues based on the bacterial imbalances that were identified.
Elaine then created a comprehensive treatment plan to correct the imbalance of gut bacteria through a specialised nutrition plan and specific supplements to be taken over 8 weeks.
Since putting the plan in place and taking the recommended supplements. I felt improvements within the first week and I have continued to regain my sense of vitality and have lost a few inches too.
I am back to doing the exercises and activities which I used to enjoy and no longer have gut pain or discomfort! My friends and family have noticed the changes in my energy and have been asking me what I have been doing recently, so I would like to say thanks to the lovely Elaine!”
