A stool test may the answer you have been looking for if you have symptoms of allergies. But, actually, what you think may be allergies could be a gut condition. The reason is that your gut health directly affects the immune system. After all, part of your immune system is in your gut. Therefore, to improve your health you may want to improve your gut!
Stool testing is a great option for those who are having digestive issues and/or concerned about allergies. A stool test is easy to do, non-invasive and can be performed in the privacy of your home. We recommend stool testing with our Comprehensive Stool Test because it addresses ALL the essential components of proper GI health.
If someone has poor gut health such as a condition called Leaky Gut, then the integrity of the intestinal walls will be compromised allowing toxins to flow into the blood stream. Leaky gut is a common cause of many food allergies and immune reactions which can lead to troubling health conditions.
Bacterial overgrowth is another intestinal issue that can mask itself as allergy symptoms when the real reason could be candida yeast overgrowth or an overgrowth of Dysbiotic (bad gut bacteria). Bad bacteria can destroy your gut health.
When the immune system is challenged you may have environmental allergies as well as food allergies. When a particular food chronically keeps being consumed, especially with leaky gut syndrome, a food intolerance can develop. Furthermore, continuing to eat foods when there is an intolerance can cause autoimmune diseases later down the line. That is why gut health is so important and where Comprehensive stool testing can help.
Being healthy depends on the health of the gut and allergies may be prevented when the immune system is working properly. Common Associated Symptoms Where Stool Testing May Be Beneficial Are:
• Abdominal pain
• acid re-flux/heartburn
• mucus/pus in stool
• diarrhea or constipation or IBS
• skin issues hives/rash/eczema
• unexplained weight change
• food intolerance
• nutritional deficiencies
Wow! That is a boatload of symptoms that can easily be addressed with a stool test, not to mention parasites get screened through our test too!
