The gut is the center of all health in the body. It’s job is to process food that we ingest and then send it to the rest of the body, meaning that any issues in the gut can present themselves just about anywhere in the body. For example if you have a skin issue you may want to take a look at gut health. If you have hair loss you may also want to look at gut health, etc. Since your gut health can effect other parts of your health, we believe it is one of the most important places to look at in order to allow the body to heal itself, naturally. There are many individuals today who suffer from IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) or other gut problems such as Ulcerative Colitis, leaky gut syndrome, or Crohn’s disease. The symptoms of these gut conditions vary greatly from person to person and also work through “flare-ups” meaning they get better and worse depending on environmental, stress, and other factors. As the symptoms for these disorders can effect the quality of everyday life, it can be very important for those who struggle with gut health to run a three day comprehensive stool sample kit in order to identify what is going in in your gut and what is needed to get your body to heal itself.
Stool tests look for items like good bacteria, bad bacteria, parasites, yeast, enzyme levels, pH levels, short chain fatty acids and inflammation. It goes without saying that stool is influenced by countless factors including what you eat, your environment, and stress. Single day collections only look at what is happening on a single day of your life, and can miss the key things that need to be identified from a test. For example, yeast naturally exists in the gut and is necessary for digestion, but an overabundance of yeast can spread to other areas of the body and cause symptoms there. Yeast level may test at a +1 (mild) on one day and then a +3 (severe) on another day. Thus, a three day test is better able to compare your yeast levels then a one day test. Also, if you have parasites in the gut they will not necessarily show up every single day. This is another reason why we use a three day stool sample kit at Nutritionally Yours. We want to be as thorough as possible, because your health matters!
