Entrust your health and your results in our testing to restore your gut microbiota to a healthy pattern
Characterizing the gut microbiota is an important step towards improving overall health.
Bioscreen has been investigating the relationship between the gut 'microbiota' and health for over 30 years. We are the only laboratory in Australia that cultures all the significant live bacteria that can be recovered from your faecal sample. Our scientists are dedicated to improving the health and well-being of our patients.
Do you suffer from fatigue or abdominal bloating? Do you suffer from digestive problems, alternating bowel motions, food sensitivities, poor sleep and concentration? Have you been diagnosed with fibromyalgia / CFS? Our extended faecal microbial analysis (FMA) test can investigate the composition of your microbiota. This information can help your health practitioner modify your gut microbiota to improve your health.
As you have previously been involved with, or taken an interest in, Bioscreen, we wanted to let you know about an important development in the field of gut health. The Gut Health Science Organisation has been founded by Dr Henry Butt (MSc, PhD) — Director of Bioscreen — and Dr Fi Lam (MHB (Imm), MBChB, DipSport Med, Cert Int Med (Qld), FRNZCGP, FRACGP, FACNEM) — a GP who has applied a lens of nutrition, genomics and deep listening to much of her practice over the years. We also have a Clinical Advisor with deep experience as a Director of Clinical Services — Dr Helena Johnston (MBBS, FACRRM, FRACMA, DipRCOG).
The purpose of GHS is to provide evidence-based information on gut health through real-life case studies, ongoing research and continuing clinical application of new findings in the effects of microbiota on patient health.
GHS will create a knowledge bank that generates research funding — through learning modules and webinars — with the aim of increasing our understanding of how gut microbiota affect health and informing health professionals, along with the wider community, about better responses to gut health issues and nutrition.
If you'd like to be kept informed about our progress, please visit our landing page at https://www.guthealthscience.org to add your name to our list. We will never share your data or allow it to be used for any other purpose.
Thank you for your interest in Bioscreen, and we hope you can benefit from the work of the GHS.
