Swabs are taken for culturing and analysis of bacterial and fungal infections.
This test can be used to identify fungal and bacterial infections on scalp, feet or genitals.
The swab can be used for culturing:
- any other body parts, i.e. scalp, feet
- body secretions
This test is highly recommended for patients with GI symptoms who have had negative stool tests for parasites, as the 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".
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.
