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.
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.
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.

Every product on this website was formulated with the mindset that my family and I would be using each nutritional supplement.
When you go into a product formulation knowing that your own family and children will use these products it ensures there will never be any compromise…
Plus, I want only the best for my online community and private practice clients. And, since people come to me for results after failing many times in the past, I have to know that every one of these products are truly the best of the best and will help people on their healing journey…
It’s important to understand that not all nutritional supplements are created equal.
For example, in a Functional Medicine practice only methylated or highly bio-available vitamins and minerals will be used in order to make it easy for the body to utilize.
Not only do these formula get better results, but they do not build up as toxins in the body or simply get excreted in the urine like most cheaper forms…
I made a promise to myself when I first started formulating the EquiLife line that I would not compromise on quality…
Even if a product cost me a few more dollars, I would not take any shortcuts in order to make a product for less.
This has enabled EquiLife to set itself apart even in the Functional Medicine community as a leader in the best ingredients used.
Besides never compromising on using the highest quality ingredients available when formulating our nutritional supplements, I make sure that each batch is 3rd Party tested for contaminants like:
This then allows me to be confident when consuming these products myself and knowing that the dosages are what is stated on the bottle.
Again, this leads to better user results and happier customers and wellness clients!
Another way in which the Equilibrium Nutrition supplement line sets itself apart as the leader in the industry is by always producing fresh orders every couple of months.
Our products do not sit in warehouses for over a year…
Instead we maintain freshness with smaller continuous batch orders along with climate controlled fulfillment centers.
This guarantees purity, freshness, and taste.
This is a difference you can both see and taste with every bottle!
At EquiLife we strive to provide the fastest and most convenient shipping available!
Since I know you’re going to absolutely love and see & feel the difference by using the Equi.Life supplement line I’ve formulated for my private practice, my family, and online community I'm happy to offer you my “Empty Bottle Guarantee!”
This means if you don’t see or feel the results you were looking for, or just don’t believe this was the absolute best product in its class that you’ve ever used, simply ship back the empty bottles, within 60 days of your purchase, for 100% of your product purchase price (not including S&H).
My team and I firmly believe in putting our clients and customers first, and we only want the best for you in your wellness, weight loss & anti-aging goals!
I did not do the lab, so not sure if I had parasites. But, I am glad that I did it just in case. I have digestive issues that I can’t seem to cure. I am just trying all I can to find the answer.
The data provided on this test has allowed me as an IHP to efficiently help so many of my clients resolve their digestive issues that they had previously struggled for YEARS with. I HIGHLY recommend this test to anyone who's ready to put an end to their suffering.
Being able to do this lab at home made it easy and less stressful. The steps and process is worth it to find out. It all starts in the gut so glad I did this test.
Amazing lab test
Nobody wants to deal with performing these tests but this kit was easy to use and send off to the lab.
