New Viome offering

Postby apod » Thu Jul 23, 2020 8:55 pm

I've had my eye on the Viome test for a while -- they seem to have a unique approach for producing actionable insights, beyond the typical gut health / microbe panel. This afternoon, I received an email about a new offering, they're calling the "Health Intelligence Service"

Is anyone thinking about trying out this service? Any data on how it compares to others wrt accuracy?

I just got the results from my Gut Intelligence test. Even that test has given me a lot to work on! Actually, I found the results to be pretty alarming, with many of the things they measure in the "needs improvement" range.
The food recommendations, especially my Super Foods which are those that will be most beneficial for me according to Voime's analysis, include many foods that I have avoided for the past several years as I have followed a ketogenic diet. Lots of legumes and grains. Even sprouted wheat is listed as a super food for me. ;)

My daughter did the new Viome test. It covered a lot of aspects of gut health, provided some cellular health info, and made food recommendations. For those they included a rationale for each item based on testing and reporting on a questionnaire. It looks useful to me and I might also get it.

I've done the Viome test a couple of times (12/2017 and 5/2019). I was pretty sure that I'd nail the microbe diversity area because I eat a lot of home fermented food but sadly, my second results were pretty alarming too. Turns out that I wasn't feeding those good microbes so they weren't working for me. I hadn't been eating grains or legumes either and those are exactly what those good guys need in order to do their job for us and stay happy. I changed how I ate and started adding "some" whole grains, a couple of slices of a root vegetable, and incorporated "some" beans into my daily diet and I can tell the difference. I concentrate on getting a wide variety of vegetables and then add in some of the rest of the food groups each day. I also paid attention to how each food affected my glucose levels and inflammation. I have learned that I have sensitivities to "healthy" foods that are often recommended so now know that I need to pay attention to personalizing my food to me and not based on generalities. I was just reading the other day about how food has synergy with each other in ways that science hasn't totally figured out yet so eating the rainbow in vegetables and a large diversity of each food group is important. PM me if you'd like to chat more about this.

She did! She has some gut issues and much of what she routinely eats, which is generally pretty nutritious, was in her minimize list. Grains weren't on her enjoy or superfoods lists, though.
