Here at the JCN Clinic we are super passionate about gut health! Why? Our digestive system is the epicenter of our health and wellbeing. If it is not functioning properly everything else in our body suffers. We end up with digestive disturbances, we feel tired and fatigued, we don’t handle and/or manage the daily stressors of life (not to mention the greater stressors of life), our immune system struggles, inflammatory conditions take hold, hormones are disrupted and eventually that ‘BLAH’ feeling manifests itself as an actual physiological condition.
Therefore, we have bought back for a limited time only the JCN Healthy Gut Testing Package.
What does the healthy gut testing package address?
- Great gut health: free yourself from IBS symptoms such as bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhoea, reflux and heartburn.
- Consistent energy: we want you to feel great when you wake up in the morning and stay feeling that way as your day progresses.
- Increased immunity: We want you and your gut immunity to be in tip top shape to fight any nasties that happen to come your way.
- Less aches and niggles: Yes! Increased health means decreased inflammation. You will genuinely start to fell better on the whole.
- Concrete answers with gold standard testing: We want to find out the exact cause/s of your symptoms by utilising specific diagnostic testing that eliminates guess work (see below for the testing methods utilised).
Sounds pretty awesome right!

testing included in the package
This test evaluates the health and microbial balance of the colon. It assesses the bacterial levels present as well as checking for parasites and yeasts. This test is fantastic for anyone with long term or chronic gut issues and/or a history of parasitic, bacterial or candida infection, as it lets us know as your practitoner what’s specfically going on at a microbial level in your bowel.
SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) testing examines the bacterial balance of the small bowel. Symptoms such as chronic bloating or gas, bloating straight after meals and those of you who’s symptoms respond well to the FODMAP diet could benefit greatly from this test.
Please note your practitioner will choose the most appropriate testing method for you during your consultation.
