What does your poop say about you? There….I said it. The hottest topic around is your gut and it’s microbiome. There are sooooo many articles and studies and diets out there surrounding this mysterious “second brain”. Did I say “second brain”? YASSSS, and it is….really. The enteric nervous system uses more than 30 neurotransmitters, just like the brain, and in fact 95 percent of the body’s serotonin is found in the bowels. I was somewhat shocked by this……have you heard it before?

I LOVE being a human lab rat and testing out brand new, shiny technology and products. I recently learned about VIOME from a great friend who felt the testing has helped her address some of her health issues. I was a bit hesitant to jump in……anything that requires mailing a box of poop sample at the Post Office makes me sweat! You just know that the clerk KNOWS what you are up to and will yell it out the minute that box is placed on the counter, right?!! (this is NOT just a “feeling” or common “worry”, I just went through this scenario with my Cologuard box. Annnddddd, the gal at the UPS store did say, rather loudly “oh yeah another poop box”.)

VIOME is technology that captures everything that is happening in the gut microbiome – the key word here is happening. My daughter and I are doing our tests this week and will keep you posted! This testing identifies tiny organisms – bacteria, viruses, archaea, fungi in one simple test. You then have access to an app that shows you in details which foods are good for you and which you should try to cut back on………it used to take 15 years to process a human genome…VIOME does it in just a couple of weeks!

Let me know if you try this product AND what you think of it and the results……
