Do you test for mould?

Our Gut Health Tests do not look for mould. Instead, we recommend that you work with one of our practitioners 1 to 1.

Working 1 to 1 with a practitioner will allow them to identify whether mould is likely to be contributing to your symptoms.

We don't look for mould in our stool tests, as this uses a method of testing called culturing. Here at Healthpath, we use a combination of qPCR and 16s rRNA sequencing in all our Gut Health Tests, which are the optimal choices. 

How to test for mould 

Our practitioners' preferred option is a urine test that looks for mould mycotoxins. We can arrange this additional test for you when working 1 to 1 with one of our practitioners, but it is not part of our standard service at this time.
