Are you suffering from on-going gut related issues?
Would you like to find out what’s actually driving these issues and put a stop to it now?

I suffered for years with symptoms of IBS that no medical intervention was able help.
When I tested privately with a comprehensive stool analysis it was incredible to see just what was going on in my gut. I strongly believe had it not been for this test I would still be suffering now. Symptoms of IBS really can take over your life. But they don’t need to. Testing is the most accurate way to discover what’s going on and how to put it right.

I been using the GI Effects Stool Profile, Genova Diagnostics most comprehensive gastrointestinal evaluation and getting incredible results for my clients for many years now. There are a few different methodologies used in evaluating the microbiome, that’s your gut bacteria, though each is complementary in providing an overall assessment and contributing to clinically actionable results. DNA analysis using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology evaluates anaerobic commensal bacteria. Culture and Sensitivity is used to evaluate aerobic and anaerobic bacteria as well as yeast.  Microscopic Ova and Parasites evaluates parasites with an adjuvant evaluation for parasitic antigens using Enzyme Linked Immunoassay.  All sounds rather technical, in a nut shell, we get to see your healthy and unhealthy bacteria levels as well as identifying any yeasts and parasites. Parasites are really quite common, I often see them come up on testing. Here’s some symptoms below:-

  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Bloating
  • Excessive gas (flatulence)
  • Hives
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue

The GI Effects Stool Profile uses DNA based technology to identify the commensal bacteria. As well as MALDI-TOF for the identification of organisms cultured. It represents the best technical platform available to assess the status of the microbiome, and has the gold standard for parasite detection, using the most extensive FDA-cleared library of microbial targets available on the market, which can accurately identify approximately 200 different additional bacteria. The technology used is capable of identifying a limitless number of organisms.

The commensal bacteria measured by the GI Effects Stool Profile represent a small fraction of the entire colonic population. Diversity and abundance are general gauges of overall health.

The test also provides gold standard culture results for pathogens, potential pathogens, beneficial bacteria, yeasts and commensals.  When a potential pathogen is identified, Genova offers sensitivities for that bacteria both to pharmaceutical and botanical agents. So I know exactly what to use to get you the best results, and eradicate any nasties.

The effectiveness of parasitic infection is dependent on the experience and skill of the technologist. The technologists at Genova offer many years of expertise. The sensitivity of a one day stool collection is >90%.  A three day collection of additional specimens on separate days which is what the GI Effect offers, increases the sensitivities to approximately 99%.

If you’re struggling with your health this test could be the key that unlocks the door to your problems.

Once the test is completed and analysed which takes 14 working days. We would catch up and run through your results. I would explain to you exactly what is going on and how we can put it right. You then work through a tried and tested protocol with accurate prescriptive agents according to your test results. You will then work closely with me at each stage of your recovery until all your symptoms have disappeared. Marvelous!

My passion is getting people recovered from illnesses. My focus is on digestive health and chronic exhaustive conditions. I treat the physical and the emotional aspects of these conditions. And work alongside a team of specialist, so if I don’t have all the answers I can refer you to another specialist who will have. This approach ensures a full recovery back to health and beyond.

If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
