Living with IBD can feel overwhelming

Once your gastroenterologist determines the best medical regimen to treat your symptoms, you are left to figure out a lot of things on your own. Issues such as what to eat, what not to eat or how to reduce your chance of flares can be continuing sources of confusion and distress.

Luckily, the microbiome in your gut can help provide some answers

AlvusIBD is a test that compares your gut microbiome data to the microbiome of people with and without IBD. This evidence-based information — that your naturopath or integrative healthcare provider monitors over time — may show you early changes in your health status.
