Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay Plus

We’re not just what we eat, but we're what we DIGEST, ABSORB, ASSIMILATE & EXCRETE

Did you know that almost 80% of your immune system is in your gut? Digestive health is at the root of most issues and getting this right is the first step in living healthy balanced life.

Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay Plus (GI MAP TEST) is a comprehensive gut test to uncover gut health imbalances. The test is the comprehensive stool analysis to include the DNA and PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) assay for GI pathogens performed on stool. The pathogens targets include bacteria, parasites, and viruses. This technique also allow for the measurement of antibiotic resistance genes and virulence factors that contribute to pathogenicity.

Our Gut is a big Ecosystem and there are more than 100 trillion microbial cells. And these bugs control digestion, metabolism, inflammation and risk of cancer. At the same time, these bugs also sustain our body and produce vitamins and beneficial nutrients to establish a balanced ecosystem. With the current epidemic of Digestive Illness, We take a functional medicine approach to digestive and systemic health issues. If Gut health is compromised, our cells lose their capacity to function fully.

I have explored a lot of alternative mediums of healing and was fairly knowledgeable when I came across Sheetal. Even though I had tried multiple healing remedies, my health wasn't in a good place. Was going through hormonal imbalance, thyroid and PCOS, Fatigue, Acne, and persistent low energy. 


Over time as I interacted with Sheetal, I realised the depth and amount of inferences she has about each and every symptom and how it is all correlated. The big and little changes she patiently helped me inculcate in my daily routine in addition to the Nutraceuticals and Herbs she put me on have brought a complete turnaround in my state. 


After years, my acne has gone and I feel a gush of energy in me and my cycle has now stabilized. In my entire journey every time I faltered and fell back to my old patterns, Sheetal very patiently brought me back to track. And educated me gradually on how each of my upcoming symptoms appeared and what it was signifying. 


I feel so grateful to have encountered the right way to live and all the knowledge Sheetal has imparted me over time - I feel richer and more confident of leading a good life now.
