Digestive Analysis - CDSA

We offer a test called the CDSA or Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis. This is used to get the most information for the least money because it packages a lot of tests into one. In this test there are several areas that we look at. First this test looks at the bacteria that are present and separates them into beneficial, not so beneficial and pathogens. It looks at yeast levels to see if there is a problem. If pathogenic yeast or bacteria are present, cultures are done to see what anti-biotic or natural substance will eradicate them. Ova (worm eggs) and parasites are looked for and identified. The presence of blood and the stool pH is determined. Test for pancreatic enzymes and food fibers are performed. Immunological test for IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) are done with additional tests to differentiated IBS from IBD (Irritable Bowel Disease, such as Crohns disease). This is certainly everything you wanted to know about your stool but were afraid to ask.
