• Last (Covid) year was an extremely difficult one for me dealing with a number of severe Gastric problems and procedures. I realised early on that to heal I needed to take my own health into my own hands, and also realised the link between good gut health and general wellbeing. Having a positive test for SIBO allowed me to start the journey of repairing my gut microbe. I can highly recommend the many tests that Gastrolife offer, in an effort to live a well-balanced and healthy life. GastrolLife was the most important catalyst in taking responsibility for my own physical wellbeing.

  • The service provided at Gastrolife is fantastic. I carried out a SIBO test there, and tested positive. After years of digestive issues, I am now finally on the mend after identifying the correct treatment. This has given me great relief. Melissa is a wealth of knowledge and is really at the cutting edge of science in diagnosing and treating digestive issues. The team in Gastrolife is always efficient, professional and very friendly, and I would highly recommend them.

  • I decided to take the SIBO breath test with Gastrolife after suffering with IBS for more than 10 years. Melissa and all the staff were very knowledgeable and the test itself was very simple. I am glad I did, because the results were positive. My Gastroenterologist has since treated the SIBO and I am doing a lot better.

  • I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to Gastrolife for the changes this test has made to my life. I first heard of this Test through my Dietitian. I had struggled with my symptom’s for over three years before I took the SIBO test.. Following treatment, the positive change in how I felt were quite amazing. Thank you Melissa for the part you played in conducting the Gastrolife Tests without which I feel I could still be going around in circles looking for answers

  • I attended the Gastrolife clinic twice for breath testing. I was really impressed by their all around efficiency from my appointment, consultation and follow up. All instructions were clearly explained to me on line and by phone if I needed. The website is user friendly and I received my report and receipt promptly on time.

  • My experience in Gastrolife clinic couldn't have been better. Without needing a doctor's referral, Gastrolife's tests helped me to identify the root cause of many years of gut issues and discomfort. The staff are very professional and knowledgeable. Since then I have been on a path to recovery.
