Complete Digestive Stool Analysis

Complete Digestive Stool Analysis

The Complete Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA) is a non-invasive tool used to assess the digestive system. This test provides accurate information regarding your digestive enzymes, acid/alkaline levels of the gut, detection of pathogenic organisms and beneficial bacteria. There are two kinds of methods used to analyse stool samples, cultured methods and DNA methods. Your Naturopath will recommend which method is best for you.

What will it measure?

The test will measure biochemical markers of digestion or mal-digestion as well as metabolic markers of intestinal metabolism and identification of bacterial microflora, including pathogenic and imbalanced flora detecting any abnormal gut mycology e.g. Candida sp., detection of any parasites or pathogenic bacteria.

How is the test performed?

Fortunately, the test is performed in the privacy of your own home. Once your MNMC Naturopath has decided that it is a beneficial test you will be provided you with a test kit. This test kit comes complete with everything you will need to perform the test. Once completed a courier will come and collect the sample, which will be delivered to the lab for analysis. Once the results are finalised your practitioner will explain the results and provide the treatment necessary to combat the problem and restore gastrointestinal health.

What are the common signs of parasitic, yeast or bacterial infection?

  • bloating, indigestion, excessive flatulence
  • constipation, diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome
  • abdominal pain or distention
  • fatigue, lethargy and apathy
  • difficulty concentrating, poor memory, recurrent headaches
  • muscle aching or weakness
  • poor immune function and a flare up of allergies
  • low moods, anxiety, mood swings due to impaired hormone clearance
  • skin disorders such as acne, eczema and psoriasis
