Gut Bacteria and Parasite
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.
DO YOU SUFFER FROM
- Bowel Dysfunction
- Abdominal Cramps
- Brain Fog
- Chronic Stress
- Blood or Mucus in Stools
This easy at-home lab test measures the following results: microscopy, antigens, cultures and occult blood in your gastrointestinal tract.

YOUR TEST WILL SHOW
- Expected/beneficial bacterial flora
- Opportunistic (imbalanced) bacterial flora
- Dysbiotic bacterial flora
- Normal yeast
- Dysbiotic Yeast
- Nematodes (roundworms)
- Cestodes (Tapeworms)
- Trematodes (Flukes)
- Red Blood Cells
- While Blood Cells
- Charcot-Leyden Crystals
- Cryptosporidium Parvum

- Y. Pylori
Comprehensive Stool Analysis
- Digestion / Absorption Markers
- Inflammation Markers
- Short Chain Fatty Acid Markers
- Occult Blood (microscopic blood in stool)
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.
