The Comprehensive Parasitology test  uses the most technologically advanced procedures to accurately identify a wide range of protozoal parasites, including amoebae, flagellates, ciliates, coccidian, and microsporidia.

 

The Comprehensive Parasitology Stool measures parasites dysbiotic bacteria, yeast (Candida) and friendly gut flora.

The markers covered include:

Beneficial bacteria, including Lactobacillus spp. and Bifidobacterium spp.

Bad bacteria  such as Klesbiella and Enterobacter Clocae.
The presence of any Parasites, including Giardia lamblia and Cryptosporidium Blastocystis Hominis and D. Fragilis

Yeast/fungal overgrowth, commonly referred to as Candida albicans

 

The stool test is also able to highlight the best supplements to take to eradicate your specific strain of yeast or bacteria should you test positive for either.

 

Specimens are carefully analyzed by highly-trained technicians using computer-enhanced microscopy, new staining procedures, and advanced immunoassay techniques.

How does the test work?
Patients need to send in their stool samples to the laboratory. The stool samples are then examined under an extremely powerful microscope to discover if they contain any of the above.

You will need to take 3-4 stool samples taken from 2-3 bowel movements over 3 or 4 days.
