Comprehensive Stool Analysis

Sample Report

One of the most reported symptoms in doctor’s office is abdominal pain. Abdominal pain is non-specific and can be linked to a number of illnesses. One of the major causes of abdominal pain is conditions found in the digestive tract. This is especially true when linked with other symptoms like diarrhea, constipation, or bloating. One of the best ways to check out the digestive system is through a comprehensive stool analysis.

The comprehensive stool analysis checks out four different parts of the digestive system. Number one it looks for the normal gut flora. Do you have the normal types of bacteria, amount of bacteria, and correct ration of good bacteria? Number 2, are there any bad bacteria or parasites present that may be causing disease. If bad bacteria are present they are cultured and exposed to different medicine and nutraceuticals to determine what kills them. That way we know exactly what to use to get you back on the right track. Number 3, how well the digestion tract is performing its main task of breaking down food. Number 4, what is the state of the immune system in the digestive tract.

For this stool analysis three different stool samples are collected over the course of three different days and sent to a lab to be examined. The results of this analysis can be used to make dietary changes, treat specific conditions, or repair damage done to the digestive tract. Call our office to schedule a consultation if your gut symptoms are keeping you from enjoying life the way you should.
