COMPREHENSIVE DIGETSIVE STOOL ANALYSIS
GI complaints are one of the most common reasons that people seek medical care. This test may be helpful to assess causes of persistent diarrhea, constipation, IBS, bloating and malabsorption. A kit is given to the patient to take home and collect a sample of stool and then it is sent to the lab to be analysed for beneficial bacteria, harmful bacteria, yeast/fungus, parasites, and the proper breakdown of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.
An essential part of good health is proper digestion, assimilation of nutrients and exclusion of pathogens along with timely elimination of waste. Impaired intestinal functions can contribute to development of food allergies, systemic illness, and bacterial overgrowth aka ‘dysbiosis’ as well as toxic overload of the body.
Consult your naturopathic doctor to see if this test is right for you.
