Stool analysis looks at markers in our stools which tell us about the overall health of our gut, how well we are absorbing our foods, if we have the necessary enzymes needed to break down our foods, whether we may have inflammation in our gut, if we have parasites or unwanted organisms, and what our balance of gut bacteria is.
With the consensus growing that many if not all, illnesses and imbalance have their origin in the gut, the importance of this information cannot be ignored.
This test can reveal important clinical information about many common symptoms such as gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, and constipation. It also provides assessment to help us differentiate between inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), plus a reliable assessment of pancreatic enzyme function for digestion.
This test provides information which is immediately actionable to improve gut function, and thereby, overall health and wellbeing.
