Just had some private testing done and I'm highly deficient in some important microflora. In an ideal world, I'd like to go to an NHS GI specialist who knows about this stuff and would knowledgeably treat it with pre- and probiotics and support the therapy with appropriate testing (which is very expensive done privately). I have no clue where the NHS is with all this microbiome stuff. Are they up to speed? Is it only patients and non-NHS doctors who are trying to "heal our guts" with this approach? Would I turn up at a GI clinic and get laughed out for looking at "fringe" stuff? If you have had experience of trying to get a functioning microbiome reinstated via the NHS, I'd be interested in hearing about it. PM me if you prefer.
