Parasite Test: Our parasite test includes testing by PCR and microscopy. A parasite infection can be an underlying factor in severe chronic conditions. Parasite testing is a very reasonable approach to the detection of pathogens causing chronic gastrointestinal distress.
A parasite infection can occur in anyone and at any age. Most people tend to believe that parasites are a rare situation in our body and are limited to people that travel. However, for some reason, there has been an increase in parasitic infections in our country.
Infection can occur by through four different pathways:
*contaminated food or water
*passage through the skin and nose
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS THAT YOU MAY HAE A PARASITE
*increased allergic reactions
*agitation or anxiety
*decreased immune function
POSSIBLE PLACES PEOPLE CAN PICK UP A PARASITE
*contaminated water supply
*visiting countries where parasites are high
*eating uncooked foods
*overuse of antibiotics
*fecal oral route
*through your skin
*walking barefoot in contaminated places
We have three different kits that include parasites.
1) Basic Parasitology
2) Stool Culture + PCR + Parasitology
3) Comprehensive Stool Analysis + Parasitology
