Complete Gut Bacteria & Parasite Test + 30-Minute Health Coaching Call

30 Minute Health Coaching Consultation Included

You find yourself continually stressed out. You’ve been experiencing bowel dysfunction or unexplained body pain and headaches. If you are doing your best to live a healthy lifestyle but continue to experience symptoms like these, microorganisms that have become out of balance in your intestines could be to blame.

While a number of microorganisms are commonly found in our intestines, it is possible for them to fall out of their homeostatic limits. What’s more, we can acquire microorganisms that should never be present in our body. In either case, a GI tract out of balance can lead to a number of health issues. This easy, at-home lab test measures microscopy, antigens, cultures and occult blood in your gastrointestinal tract so you can take a deep dive into your health and uncover the true reasons you’re feeling unwell.

Collection Method: Stool Sample

If you’ve been dealing with months (or years) of digestive issues, you owe it to yourself to figure out once and for all what is going on inside your gut. This test will help pinpoint the causes of gastrointestinal symptoms and other chronic conditions by measuring key markers of digestion, absorption and inflammation.

Using a growth-based culture, the standard of practice in clinical microbiology, as well as sensitive biochemical assays and microscopy, this thorough stool test evaluates the status of beneficial and pathogenic microorganisms including aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, yeast and parasites. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing to prescriptive and natural agents is also performed to look for appropriate bacterial and fungal species.

This comprehensive at-home lab test can provide the answers at the root cause level that can help bring your body back into balance and health.





WHAT IS TESTED

This easy at-home lab test measures the following results: microscopy, antigens, cultures and occult blood in your gastrointestinal tract.

Tested markers include studying your stool sample for parasites and yeast, the presence of specific antigens (or protein fragments) in the sample which is a physical representation of the presence of parasites, bacteria and whether there is any blood present in your sample.





Your GI tract is the internal interface between you and the rest of the world. Anything that compromises its integrity and healthy function exposes you to a host of issues like inflammation and microbial imbalance.

Do You Suffer From

  • Bowel Dysfunction
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal Cramps
  • Brain Fog
  • Chronic Stress
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Nausea/Vomiting
  • Blood or Mucus in Stools

This test is an important test to complete for anyone with bowel of GI related issues. It’s important not to leave suspected GI issues unaddressed, as they can lead to a number of symptoms and more serious conditions down the road.
