How the microbiome test works

 

Collection method: Stool

Turnaround time: 14 working days 

For this test, you provide a small sample of your stool (poo). This is sent to a lab, where it’s analysed for bacteria, yeasts, parasites and other biomarkers that indicate intestinal health.

Based on this information, you’ll receive personalised dietary and lifestyle advice to optimise your gut health—and support your health as a whole.

  1. Eat a normal diet for one week before the test.
  2. Collect a poo sample with the stool collector.
  3. Follow the instructions to return your sample.
  4. Receive in-depth results about your gut health.

Frequently asked questions

I don’t have any gut issues. Do I need to take this test?

Our gut does far more than digest our food. Amongst many other things, it plays a role in making our neurotransmitters, it influences our hormones and it’s also home to most of our immune system. What this means is that if something isn’t right in the gut, it can show up in a number of ways—headaches, skin conditions, joint pain and more. To look at it another way: there are very few conditions that can’t be helped by addressing the gut. If you recognise yourself in any of the symptoms listed above, it may be worth taking the test.

Who should take the microbiome test?

The microbiome test provides information that simply can’t be gathered from a questionnaire or consultation, which means it could prove insightful for anyone. It’s particularly helpful for those suffering from digestive complaints, skin conditions and autoimmune diseases, and any other symptoms listed above.

Please note that the free practitioner interpretation and health protocol received with test results are only suitable for adults. Anyone under the age of 18 should only purchase a test when working directly with a practitioner.

Please contact us at hello@healthpath.com for further information.

Is the microbiome test worth the money?

We certainly think so. At Healthpath, we value evidence and trust—and this applies to all our products. Unless something can genuinely help you, we have no interest in offering it. We understand it can seem strange to pay for health tests (especially in the UK), but we also think that your health is one of the most valuable investments you can make.

Do you ship outside the UK?

At the moment we only ship to UK addresses. We’re looking to expand, so watch this space.

How do I take the microbiome test?

You can download full instructions here.

Do I need to stop taking supplements or medications before taking this test?

No. You must not stop any medications in order to take this test. Common supplements are unlikely to affect the results.

Is there anything I need to do before taking this test?

You must follow your normal diet a week before taking the test, as any dramatic changes in diet will lead to skewed results. You must also plan to take the test on Monday–Wednesday, as the samples can only be posted back to the lab on these days. For more information, you can download the test instructions here.

How long will it take to get my results?

Your results will be posted on your online account a maximum of two weeks after you return your samples.

How do I view my results?

Simply log in to your Healthpath account here and click ‘Tests’. You’ll be able to access your results and personalised recommendations one week after returning your samples (sometimes sooner).

How will I know what my results mean?

All your results data is accompanied by clear, jargon-free explanations. Our practitioners also review all results, providing personalised recommendations that are easy-to-follow and specific to you.

Why can’t I get the microbiome test through the NHS?

Functional tests are highly specialised and currently not offered through the NHS. At present, the only option is to pay for them privately. We appreciate you want to spend your money wisely, which is why we only offer tests that are genuinely helpful.

Can I claim the cost of the test on my private health insurance?

It’s possible, though you’ll need to check the details of your insurance to see what’s included.
