When I was in my 30’s, I started studying holistic nutrition. I learned about the benefits of doing a stool test, taking a probiotic, and that bad things can live in the gut. And I thought a parasite was something people get from just drinking dirty water. And I had heard that some dogs can get parasites but did not think people would often.
I certainly knew there were antibiotics to kill harmful bacteria. As a young woman, I got many urinary tract infections and, of course, took my share of antibiotics for those. No one ever said to make sure I was supporting the good bacteria, though. My digestion was also a bit messed up due to the overpowering of bad stuff in my gut! When I started working in natural health and wellness, I just had to know what I had done to my gut over the years and what I needed to do to fix it.
Food intolerance testing proved I had a gluten intolerance issue, so removing gluten helped to a point. When I added a comprehensive stool sample test to my labs, it showed me exactly what type of bacteria was overpowering my gut, and I needed to improve. The stool test looked at many helpful markers. Some of these included; sigA (leaky gut marker), good, and bad bacteria, many yeast strains, parasites, worms, short-chain fatty acids, which was the main thing I was low in, and many more items.
There are so many probiotics on the market it is hard to know which one would be the most beneficial to my gut, so this test told me all the good strains that my gut wanted. It made life so much easier.
After supporting my gut health properly, I realized I was not getting stomach aches anymore. They just went away.
I wish I could tell you what your gut needs, but I cannot. Every stool sample test has been different and unique to each person. What worked for me may not work for you. And your health IS in your gut, so as your gut health improves, your overall health should improve too. YAY.
Poor gut health causes gas, bloating, IBS, food reactions, acne, skin eruptions, hair loss, diarrhea, colon inflammation, blood, frequent illnesses, headaches, and more.
