Gastrointestinal (GI) Panel

It has become increasingly clear over the past few years that gastrointestinal function and environment can have a tremendous impact on your overall health. The gastrointestinal system is complex and has a number of previously unknown roles in the stability of brain function and immune stabilization. As with all of our panels at Safe Harbour Wellness, this panel is designed to provide a scientifically validated system to indicate the need for a specific supplement or medication based on an individual’s genetic profile.

Understanding “the Gut”

The gastrointestinal tract, or gut, is an organ system consisting of the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, pancreas, liver, gallbladder, colon, and rectum. The gut is unique in that it’s the only organ system that is autonomic, functioning without oversight from the brain. Its primary purpose is to ingest food and drink, absorb its nutrients for energy, and expel the remaining materials from the body. The gut also serves as a key part of the immune system.
There is a major immunological presence around the gut. As the GI tract introduces only foreign organisms (like bacteria and viruses), the gut is a likely place for contamination. To combat the inherent risk, 70% of the immune system surrounds the gut to protect the whole body from getting sick. Since the support of brain function, immune stabilization, and digestive process are dependent on the chemical processes occurring in and around the gut, aiding the cells and good bacteria that carry out the mechanisms can help overall health.
Utilizing our proprietary software, the Gastrointestinal Panel will take an individual patient’s DNA genetic findings and interpret them through the Safe Harbour Wellness Precision Supplementation algorithm, to determine the exact therapeutic need of the patient. Gut microbiome testing can be costly. Our GI genetic test can indicate to those with extreme GI issues whether or not more extensive food allergy and/or microbiome testing is needed.

Histamine is a chemical compound in the immune system that helps rid the body of allergens by triggering physiological functions like inflammation. The immune system uses inflammation to help the body repair, but when inflammation is unchecked, it can do more damage than good. Foods like tomatoes, spinach, citrus fruits, and fermented drinks are high in histamines. While considered part of a healthy diet for many, these high-histamine foods can be harmful to those without the enzyme or enzymes necessary to break down histamines and control inflammation. Neurobiologix’s GI His Support is intended to improve histamine tolerance. The results of your gastrointestinal panel will show whether or not your DNA indicates a poor ability to break down external histamines. If this is the case, taking GI HIST Support before or during a meal and avoiding foods containing histamines can help with histamine intolerance. Probiotics can also reduce inflammation by promoting and/or supporting a healthy gut microbiome by introducing good bacteria, and Beta Glucanscan help kill bad bacteria to further reduce

Chronic inflammation can also occur as a result of gluten ingestion for those that are gluten-sensitive or intolerant. Our genetic test for gastrointestinal issues can identify those genetically inclined to have problems with gluten. Lactose intolerance is another gastrointestinal-related disorder. Lactose is a sugar found in milk that is broken down by the enzyme lactase. Those with lactose intolerance do not have enough lactase enzymes to properly digest it, which results in intestinal distress. Some people produce little to no lactase because of their inherited genes, making it identifiable through a DNA submission.
SNP testing allows patients and their doctors to gain a better understanding of what’s happening on a genetic and cellular-level. Completed in 2012, The 1000 Genomes Project and its’ accompanying research, allowed the scientific community to identify the physical and functional standpoint of specific gene changes. This project and continuing research has helped scientists and doctors determine which SNPs (mutations) are harmful and which are not a concern to your health. When a patient has SNP testing, doctors can focus their attention on genetic mutations that can lead to poor health and offer the patient guidance in the prevention of health problems or create a protocol to help those with current health problems.* * These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Perfect marriage of Innovative DNA Testing and Proprietary Interpretation Software.

Our Nutrigenomics tests, are much more than your typical laboratory’s DNA Genomic Test. In fact, our system is the perfect marriage between forward thinking Interpretation Software and Innovative Nutrigenomics Testing. In addition to being the most comprehensive DNA Nutrigenomics test available, the real magic lies within our proprietary SNP Interpretation software.

Our innovative software, takes the guesswork out of the physician’s results interpretation, as it links any identified SNPs to the recommended nutritional support that lends the greatest potential for the most optimal patient outcome. This software provides a detail and a summary, showing highly recommended nutritional support therapeutics, the nutritional or pharmacological support best left to the provider’s discretion, lifestyle recommendations, as well as any suggested additional laboratory testing one should consider.

This saves the provider valuable time that could be better spent on patient care, rather than looking up specific SNPs and the associated supplemental support. Additionally, the concise format of our report provides an easy to understand outline to better ensure alignment between patient and provider.
