Hear from other people raving about Tiny Health

The first gut test designed with families in mind

Tiny Health was founded by Cheryl, a Mom looking to heal her baby’s microbiome after a C-Section birth. Unable to find clear, reliable answers anywhere she quickly realized that the only gut microbiome tests on the market were designed for grown-ups, not babies, leading to inaccurate results. She set out to create the first ever test to measure the microbiome health of babies during the critical first 1,000 days of life

Frequently asked questions

Tiny Health utilizes shotgun metagenomic sequencing technology, recognized as the new gold standard in microbiome research. Shotgun sequencing enables us to detect over 120,000 microbes in your gut community, including all bacteria, viruses, fungi, and single-cell parasites, along with their functional potential. A Tiny Health gut test offers the most comprehensive and accurate analysis available, providing you with a complete picture of your entire gut community.

The Optimize Program is designed to provide you with a high level of personalized support and guidance to help you unlock optimal health through personalized microbiome insights. The Optimize Program includes two gut tests and four consult calls with a microbiome specialist, providing you with a high level of personalized support throughout your journey. Additional kits can be purchased at a discounted rate of $169/kit.

The Tiny+ Membership, also takes a proactive approach to optimize your gut health to set the foundation for lifelong health, but the program provides more 1 on 1 guidance for fine tuning your gut. The membership Includes two gut microbiome tests and one consult call per year. Additional kits can be purchased at a discounted rate of $169/kit.

Our six-month targeted program is designed to help you address the root cause of your gut imbalances, offering a comprehensive approach to gut health. Here's how it compares to single-kit offerings:

  • Optimize Program: Includes two gut tests and four consult calls with a microbiome specialist, providing you with personalized support throughout your journey. Additional kits can be purchased at a discounted rate of $169/kit.
  • Adult Gut Baseline Assessment: Includes one gut microbiome test and one consult call with a microbiome specialist. The Gut Baseline Assessment is a good starting point if you're unsure if a program or membership is right for you. Your microbiome specialist can recommend the best next steps during your consultation call.
  • Adult Gut Health Test: A standalone gut test without a consult call. This option is suitable if you already have a deep understanding of gut health. However, we find that Tiny Health customers who consult with our microbiome specialists derive the most value from their Tiny Health test.

As part of the Optimize Program, you have access to additional kits for any member of your family at the discounted rate of $169/kit.

The six-month duration of the program is based on the time it typically takes to work through a chronic condition effectively. Here's a breakdown of what to expect during the six months:

  • Month 1: You’ll have an introductory consultation with your microbiome specialist and take the first gut test. It takes about 3-4 weeks to receive the results of your microbiome test.
  • Month 2-3: You’ll receive the results of your first test and meet with your microbiome specialist to establish your personalized Action Plan. You’ll work on implementing the recommended Action Plan for the next 4-6 weeks.
  • Month 4: You’ll check in with your microbiome specialist to see how the actions implemented are progressing and take the second gut microbiome test.
  • Month 5-6: You’ll receive the results of the second gut test and meet with your specialist to see how the changes you’ve implemented have shifted the gut microbiome. Your specialist will fine tune your personalized Action Plan.

After the initial six months, your microbiome specialist will help you determine the best next steps. The Program auto-renews for an additional six months. Your specialist may recommend additional support with a continuation of the program. Alternatively, they may recommend that you graduate and join the Tiny+ Membership after the initial six month period. The Membership offers ongoing support and resources to help maintain and optimize your longterm gut health.

The gut plays a crucial role in overall health, and a microbiome test can provide valuable insights into your gut and metabolic health. It can reveal levels of hidden gut inflammation, bacteria that produce anti-inflammatory short-chain fatty acids, microbiome diversity, and biomarkers for immune health and fiber digestion.

By gaining a deeper understanding of your gut community, you can take personalized actions to optimize your gut and improve your overall health. This may include adopting precision nutrition, incorporating targeted supplements, and making lifestyle changes tailored to your unique microbiome profile.

Many of our members use their FSA/HSA to pay for clinical fees, and tests. However, we recommend checking with your FSA/HSA company/carrier for more information on what details are required.
