Laboratory tests of functional medicine in Be Balanced

Analysis of intestinal microbiome

This is a very comprehensive analysis of a stool sample, which we send to the German laboratory Biovis Diagnostik MVZ GmbH. This test informs us in detail about the biodiversity of the intestinal environment, possible dysbiosis or the disparity between beneficial and potentially pathogenic bacteria, the number of individual bacterial strains is also measured, whether we have a reasonable amount, excessive or insufficient, and the presence of parasites and fungi is tested.

In addition, in the expanded variant, the level of histamine and zonulin is mentioned, the latter being considered a marker of increased intestinal permeability. The evaluation takes about 3 weeks.


DNA health test

This test is also a product of Danish Nordic laboratories. Evaluates genetic variations in several areas of health – lipid metabolism, methylation, detoxification, inflammation, oxidative stress, bone health, insulin sensitivity, food reactions (caffeine, iron, PUFA, salt, bitter taste, alcohol, gluten, lactose) and metabolism vitamins (vitamin A, D, B12 and C). According to individual genetic variations, we can suggest changes in diet, lifestyle or appropriate dietary supplements to optimize health, energy, longevity and disease prevention.

The sample is newly taken from a drop of blood from a finger prick. If the client does not dare to pick up at home, it is possible to do so at Be Balanced MUDr. Tereza Černá. For children or clients who do not manage this collection, you can order a kit and remove the care from saliva. (In this case, the sample is taken with a simple swab from the buccal mucosa in the oral cavity.)

The evaluation takes about 2-3 weeks. This test is suitable not only for identifying risk factors that may play a role in the development of chronic diseases, but also in prevention. Another advantage is that we have the same genes for life, so we only need to perform the test once.
