Stool Testing

Have you been told you have SIBO, IBS, Ulcerative Colitis, or Chron’s? If so, do you know what the underlying cause is? It varies from individual to individual. Have you had testing done on the function of your digestive system? At The Wellness Way, we assess the function of the digestive system through a comprehensive stool analysis. 

Our stool analysis evaluates:

  • Digestion/Absorption
  • Inflammation and Immunology
  • Gut Metabolism
  • Gut Microbiology
  • Parasitology

THERE ARE MANY DIGESTIVE ISSUES

Common gastrointestinal symptoms include gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, indigestion, heart burn, reflux, abdominal pain, and ulcers. A lot of attention is placed on symptom management. How can we feel better? A better question to ask is why am I having these symptoms? There is always a reason. A healthy digestive tract starts with healthy food and healthy digestion. Two staple tests are a food allergy test and a comprehensive stool analysis. These help to identify problem foods and breakdowns in normal digestion, respectively. This information is critical to getting to the bottom of the issue.

Digestive issues can appear in many different ways and from both obvious or unknown reasons. Symptoms may be persistent and consistent or they may be completely unpredictable. Gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, indigestion, heart burn, reflux and ulcers are just of few of the many possibilities. Sometimes it goes as far as a diagnosis of Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis or IBS. While the symptoms often gain the obvious attention, the underlying disruption of normal digestive function has largely impactful health consequences.

FIND A DOCTOR YOU CAN TALK TO ABOUT YOUR DIGESTIVE CONCERNS

With proper examination, digital imaging and other necessary diagnostic testing, a solution is closer than you think. When nutritional changes, medications and surgery miss the mark, it’s time for a different approach. Instead of attempting to cover of the symptoms, we start by identifying and working to understand the symptoms. Your body is trying to tell you something. We just need to figure out what that is. The healing process takes time, but the end result is a long-term plan and solution and not just an attempted coverup.
