Can I get the raw data to my test as I would like to know the specific types of bacteria it picked up?

Unfortunately it's not possible for our lab to be any more specific with the types of bacteria it detects.

While a few labs exist that can identify the genus (specific types) of the families of bacteria that our labs detect, these are highly specialised research labs that don't work with the general public.

Rather than focusing on individual species, it’s more important to investigate the levels of your different 'families' of bacteria and how they interact.

Looking at imbalances in the levels of those bacterial families, as well as your levels of yeasts, parasites and other intestinal health biomarkers, gives you better insight into what could be contributing to your symptoms than assessing numbers of a particular strain of bacteria.
