DISCLAIMER – this is not an advertisement, I receive no compensation from this. I truly believe in the product. It has been the “lifesaver” that has been missing through my “journey” for 20 years.
Viome Microbiome Test – My Story
Anyone who has been following my health timeline on this website, knows what I’ve been dealing with the past almost 20 years. In a nutshell, my blood work during my first pregnancy in 2001 came back with an “off-the-charts” positive ANA titer (levels), meaning that I had some form of autoimmune condition(s). It took another 9 years before I was finally diagnosed with Sjogren’s. Lupus was also present. Years later, I also developed Raynaud’s and Meneire’s.
In 2012, I decided to go gluten free and dairy free since we heard that may help. It helped quite a bit and I was able to get off my meds, but I still didn’t feel 100% my old self.
I tried everything I read about. Then, I started to see a Functional Medicine doctor in 2019 that took me in the direction of healing my leaky gut and detoxing. Still, I wasn’t feeling like I was all there yet.
I can honestly say, I was extremely disciplined about the plan and stuck with the special diets longer than anyone is ever expected to. If I tried to bring any of the foods back into my diet, I had issues… anything ranging from extreme mood swings, terrible headaches, bathroom issues, bloating, etc. Not only was I now gluten and dairy free, but I had also eliminated all sugar, corn, pork, beef, soy, egg, potato, and much more. It became increasingly difficult to eat.
Finally, of all places, I saw something on Facebook that caught my eye. It was a post by Joan Morrison, a food sensitivity health coach. She claimed that it wasn’t normal to abstain from certain “problematic” foods for a prolonged period of time, and that if you did the right treatment, you’d be able to eat the foods that caused issues. Joan was kind enough to offer a FREE initial phone consultation to discuss my situation one on one. That is when she asked me if I had ever had my microbiome tested. I honestly wasn’t sure since I had spent so much money on so many tests (out of pocket). Turns out, that was the one test I hadn’t done.
Viome Microbiome Test – HOW IT WORKS
Viome offers the microbiome test. It can be ordered online without a doctor’s prescription. I quickly ordered it for myself as well as my daughter. We did our test, mailed it in, and a couple weeks later we received our results. In case you’re wondering – yes, it’s a mail-in poop test. The same kind they use for colon cancer screening. You will receive results in a couple of weeks.
Test results are emailed to you and they are VERY easy to understand.
The Viome microbiome test provides you with several different gut health measures. A lot of it is foreign to me, but the parts that were most relevant were the food and supplement lists. In very basic terms, the microbiome test tells you which foods are harmful to your gut, which should be minimized, which are superfoods, and which are neutral. They also suggest supplements to help you heal. Their claim is that if you follow their suggestions, you will be all well in 90 days.
VERY SIMPLY – Eat your superfoods, avoid “harmful” foods, mimimize your “minimize” foods, and don’t sweat the neutral ones.
You would be surprised by the foods results on your microbiome test. For example, broccoli came back as a “kryptonite” food for me that I need to completely avoid for now. I was eating broccoli every day thinking I was really helping myself, go figure. Once I started following the plan, I actually started feeling better within about 10 days! I have more energy than I have in years! And, I’m noticing that I can start bringing some of the problematic foods back into my diet with no issues! After all of these years, I’m eating normal foods again.
I can’t express enough how big of a life changer this is. My life has been so restricted for so many years, and still not to the point of feeling like I should even with all the sacrifices.
Joan explained how you will never fully heal if you have issues with your microbiome. Now, I fully believe it. I am going to continue this route because there is so much progress. I look forward to being normal again. Fix the microbiome, fix everything!
I am sharing this with all of you because of how miraculous it has been for me. I am not getting paid to say any of this.
