Optimal intestinal health is a prerequisite for most body physiology
Cornerstones of good health include proper digestion of food, assimilation of nutrients, exclusion of pathogens and timely elimination of waste.
Poor digestion and malabsorption of vital nutrients can contribute to degenerative diseases, compromised immune status, and nutritional deficiencies.
Impairment of the highly specific nutrient uptake processes, or compromised GI barrier function (as in “leaky gut syndrome”) can result from a number of causes including: low gastric acid production, chronic maldigestion, food allergen impact on bowel absorptive surfaces, bacterial overgrowth or imbalances (dysbiosis); pathogenic bacteria, yeast or parasites and related toxic irritants, and the use of NSAID’s and antibiotics.
The comprehensive digestive stool analysis is a powerful diagnostic tool aiding physicians in documenting parasitic and pathogenic involvement that can interfere with normal gastrointestinal function and develop into a pathological condition.
In addition this innovative test provides information about digestion, absorption, bacterial balance, yeast overgrowth, inflammation, metabolic activity, and immune function.
Important information regarding the efficiency of digestion and absorption can be gleaned from the measurement of the fecal levels of elastase (pancreatic exocrine sufficiency), muscle and vegetable fibers, carbohydrates, and steatocrit (% total fat)
Inflammation can significantly increase intestinal permeability and compromise assimilation of nutrients. The extent of inflammation, whether caused by pathogens or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), can be assessed and monitored by examination of the levels of biomarkers such as lysozyme, lactoferrin, eosinophil protein X (EPX), white blood cells and mucus.

Efficient remediation of GI dysfunctions incorporates a comprehensive guided approach that should include consideration of elimination of pathogens and exposure to irritants, supplementation of hydrochloric acid, pancreatic enzymes and pre- and probiotics, and repair of the mucosal barrier.
This makes the comprehensive digestive stool test a powerful tool in helping us in our medical detective work.
Microorganisms in the GI tract perform a host of useful functions, such as:
Intestinal micro flora are also thought to have many beneficial local and systemic roles such as improving lactose tolerance, supplying short chain fatty acids (SCFA) as an energy substrate for the host, anti-tumor properties, neutralizing certain toxins, stimulating the intestinal immune system, and even reducing blood lipid levels.
