Complete GI Analysis consists of :
- Comprehensive Stool Analysis Test
- Swab Stool Culture Test
- H Pylori Test
The combination of these three tests provides full coverage screening of all intestinal pathogens and is recommended for anyone experiencing GI symptoms. Please see details of each individual test below.
Comprehensive Stool Analysis Test
It provides a detailed analysis of all intestinal parasites (Protozoa, Trematodes,Tapeworms, Nematodes) from all 7 continents as well as an overview of other intestinal organisms including Candida, yeast, and other fungi.
See Dr. Amin's article Understanding Parasites for informative background on parasitic infections and prevalence.
Analysis of bio-indicators such as red and white blood cells, mucus, fatty acid crystals, starch granules, undigested tissue, beneficial bacteria, epithelial cells, pollen, and charcot-leyden crystals is also included.
Swab Culture Test
Swabs are taken for culturing and analysis of bacterial and fungal infections.
Sensitivity and resistance results are also included.
The swab is used for culturing stool in this test package.
This test is great for patients with GI problems because symptoms for pathogenic bacteria are very similar to those of parasitic infections. See a new publication by Dr. Omar M. Amin,"The Contribution of Pathogenic Bacteria to GI symptoms in Parasite-free patients" in the Journal of Bacteriology and Parasitology. View another publication re: IBS in the New England Journal of Medicine stating that up to 20% of all IBS cases are due to "gut flora".
H Pylori Test
Helicobacter pylori is a bacterial infection associated with chronic stomach inflammation which can significantly increase the risk of ulcer formation. This stool test is a non-invasive way to detect the bacteria. It's convenience and accuracy make it the preferred method of detection.
To run this test you need a PCI trained practitioner to receive the results. Marie Mann at mpower-fitness is fully qualified through PCI Europe to coach relevant protocols after receiving the test results.
