About Our Digestive Stool Analysis
At Bronte Wellness, we have access to a variety of comprehensive testing to evaluate the health and function of the gut, including the GI Map test and the Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis. These tests involve at-home stool collection, which is then shipped off to the respective company and analyzed using molecular diagnostics to generate robust data on the patient’s gut health.
Results of these tests can include gastrointestinal pathogens (including parasites, fungi, bacterial or viral infections), commensal organisms (including normal bacteria of the gastrointestinal tract, and a quantitative analysis of each species), markers of gastrointestinal health (that can indicate specific dysfunctions of the gastrointestinal tract) and more.
Naturopathic doctors often use a variety of gut health-supporting nutraceuticals, herbal antimicrobials, and dietary changes to address imbalances of the gut. These tests are very specific and provide a wide array of insight, allowing treatment options to be tailored to the individual’s specific gut microbiome and their particular digestive issues. This removes the guesswork and allows you to have an in-depth look at what’s going on in your gut, to allow you to fix your digestive issues once and for all.
