Test Your Microbiome
Viome is a clinically accredited microbiome test, and is a test your doctor could order (or you can order yourself). It’s the most comprehensive test and looks for all microorganisms in the gut, unlike other tests that screen for certain organisms…so you’ll get the widest snapshot of whats going on in your gut- including bacteria, viruses, and parasites.
Even though the Viome test kit is already half the price of some other popular doctor-ordered stool test kits, Viome is offering my listeners a discount on their microbiome test kit.
Use the special code “Marlowe” for $100 off your order.
