Working With (Not Against) Your Microbiome
It's hard to pass up a good chance to eat your favorite dishes this festive season. Think about it: cookies, gingerbread houses, turkey, and Christmas ham just calling out your name. But what if there was a way to help you make healthier choices and still enjoy the celebration? That's where Viome comes in.
Viome is at the forefront of this emerging field, providing cutting-edge testing and personalized recommendations to improve your overall health on a micro level.
With their at-home testing kits, knowing the state of your health is more accessible and convenient than ever before. Viome creates precise, science-backed recommendations by combining your biological data, lifestyle and diet choices, and artificial intelligence. They aim to change how we think about health and nutrition by understanding the human microbiome.
The Viome Full Body Intelligence Test is one of their new and most popular products. It's a comprehensive at-home test that measures eight high-level health scores (and 50+ subscores) to give you a comprehensive overview of your health. The test itself is simple and easy to do and won't require you to fast or make drastic changes to your diet in any way. You need to provide a sample of your saliva, blood and stool, which Viome will then analyze in their laboratory.
From here, Viome explores microbial and human gene expression in producing unique, actionable insights that can help you improve your health. This kind of detailed information was once only available to a privileged few and scientists, but Viome is now available to anyone who wants to take charge of their health holistically and organically.

For me, Viome has been instrumental in helping me understand my gut health issues and how well my gut and oral microbiome are functioning. For example, it showed me that oxalates are causing issues for my microbiome, contributing to inflammation in my body. By removing these foods, I can support my microbiome better and reduce systemic inflammation and the symptoms that accompany that. It also showed me that I have cavity-causing microbes in my mouth, meaning I need to floss more and consider using probiotic-rich toothpaste.
All in all, if you have persistent symptoms and can’t figure out why they may be occurring, testing your microbiome can reveal hidden causes you may be unaware of, which ultimately helps you heal.
