Customer Testimonials

After years of bouncing between medical practitioners, I had the good fortune of stumbling on Michael Smith who has been instrumental in helping me. Michael has been incredibly supportive throughout my consults and I am very grateful for his expert guidance on helping me to understand and regain my gut health after suffering from dysbiosis for far too long.

Matt Bushby

Hi Michael,
I started your protocol 2 weeks ago and have had very positive results. Energy is up, temperature up slightly, hrv up, mood up. Also, my cycle is typically 25 days long for the past 8 years or so. It was 32 days this time! Today is day 1 and I feel much better than I have in as many years during pms time. I could not be happier with my vitals right now...I've been working on this for so long!

Hi, my name is Michael Smith, ND BHSC and Head Practitioner at Planet Naturopath.

While I don’t know the exact reason you’re interested in testing your digestion, I do know you’re searching for answers.

Whether that means looking for natural solutions to chronic health problems, eliminating your digestive symptoms, or just wanting to optimize your health.

If you want to find those answers, I can tell you the best way to start is with testing.

Doctors only offer basic digestion tests, if they test at all, which can miss many infections and don’t give an overall analysis of every aspect of your digestion.

Our GI-MAP Stool Test, on the other hand, looks at a wider range pathogens, as well as inflammation markers, gluten sensitivity, leaky gut, and absorption markers to find out how well you’re absorbing your nutrients.

But what makes the GI-MAP Test from Planet Naturopath invaluable, is what happens after you get your results. With our 45-minute in-depth one-on-one consultation, I’ll explain what your results actually mean to you, your health, and your body.

This is the fun part for me, because as Head Practitioner I enjoy doing all the consultations with our clients. My passion is helping people find natural solutions to optimize their health.

I’ll give you the complete details how the consultations work and how they can benefit you, but let’s start with:
