The Comprehensive Stool Analysis detects the presence of pathogenic microorganisms such as yeast, parasites, and bacteria that contribute to chronic illness and neurological dysfunction. It provides helpful information about prescription and natural products effective against specific strains detected in the sample. The test also evaluates beneficial bacteria levels, intestinal immune function, overall intestinal health, and inflammation markers.Many chronic disorders come from digestive problems and inadequate nutrient absorption. Proper gastrointestinal function is needed to eliminate toxic substances, pathogenic microbes, and undigested food particles from the body to prevent health problems. Nutrients require a specific internal environment to be properly digested and transported throughout the body.Abnormal intestinal microorganisms in the GI tract are widely known to cause disease. Research shows a relationship between the GI tract and the neurological, hepatic, and immune systems. For example, excessive yeast produces toxic substances that can pass through the blood-brain barrier and alter neurological functioning causing “brain fog,” behavior problems, and learning difficulties.

THE COMPREHENSIVE STOOL ANALYSIS

  • Detects the presence of pathogenic microorganisms such as yeast, parasites, and bacteria that contribute to chronic illness and neurological dysfunction.
  • Detects beneficial bacteria levels, intestinal immune function, overall intestinal health (presence of occult blood, short chain fatty acids analysis, pH, mucus, and other criteria), and inflammation markers.

INCLUDES:

  • Parameters for digestion & absorption
  • Cultures for bacteria and yeast
  • Parasite testing
  • Sensitivity panels
  • Inflammatory markers
  • Stool metabolic markers
  • Infectious pathogens

Collection Instructions

Please review all instructions and collection kit components before starting your sample collection. DO NOT discontinue taking prescription medications unless directed by your physician.

Step 1 – Please write the clients name and date of birth on the capped vial.

Step 2 – If possible void urine prior to collecting stool. Collect stool by passing stool onto Collection tray.

Step 3 – Using the spoon attached to the cap of the vial, spoon stool from different areas of the sample into the vial. Fill vial to the red fill line. Just over half full.

Step 4 – Carefully mix stool and fluid with the spoon. Replace cap tightly and shake vial vigorously for 30 seconds.

Step 5 – Place cap vial into ziplock specimen bag along with absorbent pad. Seal the bag. Place the specimen bag with the sample vial into the kit box.

Step 6 – Fill out the Test Request Form completely. Be sure to write the date of sample collection in the Client section of the form. Payment type must be completed with payment included to process sample. Place Test Request Form into the box with the sample and ship to laboratory. See shipping instructions below.**

**If you cannot ship the specimen on the day of collection please refrigerate the sample by placing the box containing the sample into the refrigerator.

What Does It Measure

  • Nutrients digestion (chymotrypsin, triglycerides, muscle fibers, vegetable fibers)
  • Absorption of nutrients (cholesterol, carbohydrates, steatocrit %)
  • Elimination efficiency of undigested food residues and toxins
  • Levels of healthy bacterial flora versus potentially pathogenic bacteria species, yeast and parasites
  • Culture and sensitivities of pathogenic yeast and bacteria
  • Infectious pathogens: ( EIA evaluation for Campylobacter, Enterohemorrhagic E.colicytotoxin, Giardia lamblia, Cryptosporidium)
  • Indices and markers of intestinal immune function (fecal sIgA)
  • Indices and markers of inflammation (lysozyme and lactoferrin levels)
  • Indices and markers of intestinal physiology and of intestinal health (presence of RBC, WBC, mucus, occult blood, fecal pH, and short chain fatty acids analysis)

The Benefits

  • The number of beneficial bacteria in the GI tract is determined
  • The digestive parameters aid in the diagnosis of intestinal dysfunction without invasive procedures
  • Inflammation and immune markers will aid in appropriate treatments
  • Many different pathogens have the potential to be isolated and identified

WHO SHOULD BE TESTED

Individuals who struggles with the following symptoms:

  • Unexplained constipation, diarrhea, gas, or other symptoms of IBS
  • Unexplained Weight Gain or Weight Loss
  • Thyroid Diseases including High levels of TPO Ab (Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody)
  • Traveled internationally and remember getting traveler’s diarrhea while abroad
  • History of food poisoning and ‘your digestion has not been the same since’
  • Trouble falling asleep or wake up multiple times during the night
  • Skin irritation or unexplained rash, hives, rosacea, or eczema
  • Grinding your teeth in your sleep
  • Pain or aching in your muscles or joints
  • Fatigue, exhaustion, depression, or frequent feeling of apathy
  • Never feeling satisfied or full after your meals
  • Diagnosis of iron-deficiency anemia
