Our ancestors had a very varied diet and the only populations eating a similar diet are indigenous tribal populations and these are most studied in Tanzania.

The Dove Clinic is offering Gut testing. This comprises the 16S test, which is the standard sequencing method for microbiome tests. It measures a single gene present in all bacterial DNA called 16S that allow the lab to classify most of the common bacteria present in your gut. Most population data is based on this method.
Following the analysis you will need a consultation with Dr Kenyon, who will asses the results and identify how the different groups of microbes associate to health and disease. This information will allow him to provide you with personalised advice.
