Constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, cramps, heartburn, these are all signs that something is not right with your GI system. A comprehensive stool test gives you a closer look at what may be the cause of the problems. It can show us whether your gut bacteria (microbiota), is in balance, or in a state of disarray. Proper gastrointestinal function is needed to eliminate toxic substances, bad bacteria, and undigested food particles, as well as absorb essential nutrients for our good health & healing.
You can learn a lot from you poop! Want to know if you have gut inflammation, or bad bacteria lurking? Many chronic disorders come from digestive problems and inadequate nutrient absorption. Nutrients require a very specific GI environment, to be properly digested, absorbed, and delivered throughout the body. Research shows a strong causal relationship between the GI tract and the brain, liver, and immune system functioning. Email us to find out how you can get your test done.
Research is showing us how profound the importance of our gut health is to our health! Microbes form a large physical barrier against pathogens. They plug holes, fill nooks. They cross arms and stand together, steadfast against encroaching pathogens seeking residence. Sheer brute force is one of, if not the most primary immune function of our gut bacteria. Bacteria also represent a “second brain" called the enteric nervous system, which has direct communication to the brain. This is an extremely important function along with producing certain essential chemicals and nutrients.
This stool test is unlike any conventional doctors do. Functional medicine lab testing looks between the lines. It assesses patterns of imbalance that can cause troublesome symptoms, but has not become a ‘disease state’ yet. It's ideal, though, that these imbalances are addressed before they become a disease. This is an essential test for those with IBS, inflammatory bowel disease, autoimmune conditions, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and long term constipation or diarrhea.
