Tired of digestive issues? A microbiota test is the first step towards improvement


Are you struggling with persistent gut issues?

If you’ve been experiencing persistent digestive issues such as abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea, or constipation, you’re not alone. These symptoms can significantly disrupt your daily life, making it difficult to enjoy meals or participate in social activities. Many people suffer silently, unsure of what’s causing their discomfort or how to find relief.

If this scenario sounds familiar, you may be dealing with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (a.k.a. IBS).

So, what exactly is IBS?

Understanding IBS and the role of gut health in managing it

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a relentless condition that affects the lives of millions. It is usually characterized by abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea, and constipation, thus impacting many people’s quality of life. Unfortunately, despite its prevalence, the exact causes of IBS remain unknown; researches attribute some of the root causes to a mix between intestinal hypersensitivity, abnormal muscle contractions and miscommunications between the brain and the gut1.

For those battling IBS, the daily struggle to manage symptoms can feel overwhelming. Having to constantly worry about where the nearest bathroom is, or feeling anxious about eating out with friends - because of the possible negative outcomes - can really wear someone down.

While there are many things people with IBS can try, it gets frustrating and exhausting quickly as it starts to seem like nothing is working. Traditional treatments often provide limited relief, further fueling the seemingly hopelessness of the situation . This is where understanding the gut microbiota comes in - the microorganisms living in your intestines - will offer a new perspective, and bring hope.

The gut microbiota consists of trillions of microorganisms that live in your digestive tract, primarily in the intestines. This ecosystem is unique to each individual, much like a fingerprint, and is influenced by many factors, like diet, lifestyle, environment, and genetics. Each of these factors can heavily affect the microbes in the gut and create imbalances, leading to IBS symptoms and worse.

The hidden culprit — Imbalanced gut microbiota

Research suggests that an imbalance in the gut microbiota, known as dysbiosis, plays the most devastating role in the development and aggravation of IBS symptoms2. Dysbiosis can lead to increased gut inflammation, permeability, and altered digestion, all of which contribute to the distressing symptoms of IBS.

Without a clear understanding of their gut health, people with IBS are often left guessing which foods or lifestyle changes might help reduce their symptoms. Perhaps you’ve tried eliminating dairy, only to find that it didn’t make a difference, or you’ve switched to a low-FODMAP diet with minimal relief. This trial-and-error approach is frustrating and is also costly and time-consuming.

This is why the first step in managing IBS effectively - and any gut issues for that matter - is gathering more information about your gut health. A microbiota test, such as Prokarimi’s, will give you useful insights into the specific imbalances in your gut microbiota, and will give you a concrete action plan based on your results to improve your gut microbe imbalances - and reduce your IBS symptoms.

Prokarimi’s microbiota analysis — Your path to personalized gut management

With Prokarimi’s thorough microbiota test, you will receive deep and actionable insights into your gut health. By analyzing your unique microbiota, Prokarimi offers you a detailed picture of your gut health focusing on the core bacteria imbalances that are most likely the cause of your IBS symptoms.

The process to see your gut health status with Prokarimi is simple: you order your test online, take the test in the comfort of your home, and receive your results online, without the need to make any appointments or travel anywhere.

How Prokarimi works:

After taking Prokarimi’s test, you will be provided with:

  1. Comprehensive Gut Health Assessment: which bacteria are elevated or reduced in your gut; This analysis can point to specific triggers for your IBS symptoms, allowing for a more targeted approach to management. Taking a microbiota test is the most important first step in understanding and managing gut issues more effectively.

  2. Dysbiosis Index: The test includes a ‘dysbiosis index,’ a critical marker indicating the overall health of your gut microbiome. A high dysbiosis index suggests a greater likelihood for gastrointestinal disorders, (like IBS), pointing to areas where intervention is needed.

  3. Personalized Dietary Recommendations: Based on your microbiota profile, Prokarimi provides tailored dietary recommendations that are designed to restore balance to your gut microbiota, potentially reducing some of the discomfort associated with IBS.

  4. Long-Term Gut Health Management: Rebalancing your gut microbiota is a gradual process requiring consistent effort and following the dietary recommendations. Prokarimi further supports you on this journey by offering discounts on 1-1 consulting sessions with medical experts and nutritionists to further understand your results and get even more actionable insights.
