Intestinal Health Unit
What do we do?
The Blue Healthcare Intestinal Health Unit specialises in the assessment and in-depth analysis of intestinal health, in the knowledge that it is essential for good health and disease prevention.
The human body has approximately the same number of bacteria as cells (between 30 and 50 billion), and most bacteria are housed in the gut microbiota. Some of these bacteria cause disease, but others are beneficial to health. Age, genetics, diet, environment and lifestyle all seem to affect the types of bacteria that make up the microbiome.
