Comprehensive Stool Test – Great Plains

$425.00

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 INCLUDES:

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

THE BENEFITS OF COMPREHENSIVE STOOL ANALYSIS:

  • The amount 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 identifies

The Importance of the Comprehensive Stool Analysis

Many chronic disorders result from digestive problems and inadequate nutrient absorption. Even with a very complete and balanced diet, nutrients have to be properly digested to transport vitamins to different parts of the body. Proper gastrointestinal functioning also ensures elimination of toxic molecules, microbes and undigested food particles from the body, which helps prevent infections, toxic reactions, allergies, and other health problems.

The role of abnormal intestinal microorganisms in gastrointestinal disorders is widely known. However, research also shows the relationship between the gastrointestinal and other systems in the body, such as the neurological, hepatic, and immune systems. For example, excessive yeast produces toxic metabolites, which can pass through the blood-brain barrier and alter neurological functioning, causing “brain fog,” behavior problems, and learning difficulties. Exposure to certain pathogens can cause the formation of antibodies that can interfere with the brain in predisposed individuals, causing problems with motor function. Excess of toxic by-products of certain bacteria can interfere with neurotransmitters and cause fatigue. Beneficial bacteria, on the other hand, helps with vitamin absorption and infection prevention.

Comprehensive Stool Evaluation Will Give You Specific Information About The Following Digestive Criteria

■ Digestion of nutrients (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.coli cytotoxin, Giardia lamblia, and 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)

About the Test

The Comprehensive Stool Analysis detects the presence of pathogenic yeast, parasites, and bacteria, which could be contributing to chronic illness and neurological dysfunction. It provides information about prescription and natural products that may be effective against specific microorganism strains detected in the sample. The test also evaluates beneficial bacteria levels, intestinal immune function, overall intestinal health (presence of occult blood, short chain fatty acids analysis, pH, mucus, and other criteria), and markers for inflammation.
