Gut Health


Did you know that gut problems like constipation, diarrhea or IBS, are not the only symptoms of a microbiome under stress?

Any of these can also be tied back to poor gut health:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • fatigue
  • diabetes
  • obesity
  • arteriosclerosis
  • hypertension
  • Parkinson’s
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Alzheimer’s

Find out what your Microbiome can tell you about your health

Your microbiome can be summarized as all the genetic material of bacteria, viruses, and fungi in and on your body. The gut microbiome makes around 90% of our entire microbiome and hence has an incredible influence on all areas in our bodies. If there is an overgrowth, or lack, of a certain beneficial bacteria, that can throw our health out of balance, and cause us to suffer.


How can I find out about microbial imbalances?

To get to the source of your problem, it’s best to do some gut microbiome testing. Here at Barr St Naturopathy, we offer comprehensive testing and analysis – we take the hard work out of understanding and interpreting all the data, and guide you back to health with an easy-to-use gut microbiome test. Get the whole picture of your gut microbiome – with the most comprehensive microbiome test available.

Barr Street Naturopathy works with expert laboratories that perform genetic microbiome testing, analyzing all the good bacteria and also all the pathogenic microorganisms that may cause you trouble.


How can microbial testing results help me in my day-to-day life?

Once we find out what imbalance we’re dealing with in your intestines, we can then tailor a nutritional program for you and support your gut healing with herbs, vitamins, and minerals. This way we ensure you’re feeding the right bacteria that need to grow and thrive and reduce or eliminate the ones that cause you pain and suffering


What if I don’t want microbial testing and think it’s something else?

If you don’t want to do the full microbiome testing, there are other options as well for you to find out why you’re not well. For example, if you have already a suspicion for an intolerance, sensitivity or leaky gut, there are further testing methods for this. Barr Street Naturopathy can offer this and many more.
