DESCRIPTION

As Hippocrates said, “all disease starts in the gut” and with approximately 70% of our immune system in the gut it is vital to make sure it is in the best of health. There is another saying that it is not what we eat but what we absorb that is important. So it is important to make sure that we are not only digesting but also absorbing our food as well as making sure we have a healthy balance of microbes to support all of our bodily system.  The GI effects stool test is for you if you are experiencing any of the following;

  • Burping after meals
  • Bloating
  • Flatulence (can be a bad smell)
  • Constipation
  • Diahorrea
  • Heartburn
  • Indigestion
  • Brain Fog
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Skin issues
  • Aches and pains in your joints
  • Low energy
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Intolerances or allergies

A GI effects test is recommended when:

  • You have symptoms of poor digestion.
  • You suffer from allergies.
  • You have an autoimmune disease, for example, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Crohn’s, colitis or MS.
  • You have a skin condition such as eczema, acne or psoriasis. • You suffer from a hormone imbalance such as PMS, endometriosis, fibroids or polycystic ovary syndrome. • You have had multiple courses or a long course of antibiotics.

Diagnostic tests as unique as you are

No-one is the same. Yet we often use standardised tests that assumes we are. We can be given a diagnosis on symptoms alone, yet the cause for those symptoms may not be the diagnosis
