Our approach at IMI is to determine the exact causes of your gut issues. To do this, our naturopaths may recommend industry-leading tests that will pinpoint the reasons you’re struggling. Here’s a snapshot of the main tests that have helped our naturopaths heal a myriad gut challenges.
Comprehensive stool analysis: This advanced test provides fundamental information about your overall gastrointestinal health. It identifies levels of good and bad bacteria, yeast, parasites, inflammation, secretory IgA (the ‘first line of defence’ against the entrance of potentially dangerous substances into the body), and more.
IgG food intolerance test: Different to food allergy testing, this simple dry blood test can identify IgG sensitivities to over 100 foods including dairy, wheat, gluten, eggs, sugar, soy, meats, fish, and nuts.
SIBO testing: This quick and easy breath test detects hydrogen and methane produced by bacteria growing in the small intestine, providing a deeper insight into your gut health.
The Organic Acids Test (OAT): This urine test provides an accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast, bacteria and fungi based on what organic acids are in the urine. Many people with chronic illnesses and neurological disorders often excrete several abnormal organic acids in their urine.
DNA Detoxification test
You are unique. And the way you detoxify is unique. By understanding your DNA, we can support your natural detoxification capabilities, safely and effectively. This test analyses 36 gene variants involved in biological processes including detoxification, cholesterol metabolism, and food responsiveness, such as lactose intolerance, caffeine processing, and salt sensitivity.
