stool examination

New research methods lead to different insights.
Different insights to other treatment options.

Experience shows that in many people with chronic intestinal diseases such as Colitis Ulcerosa, Crohn’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome, the symptoms are caused by the presence of pathogens like bacterial overgrowth, parasite or Candida.

Pathogens can cause irritation and damage to the intestinal wall and disruption of your digestive system. A bacterial overgrowth can cause inflammation. A Candida and Parasite can affect your intestinal wall. Witch can cause your own immune system to defend your body with an inflammatory reaction.

Immunosuppressants and anti-inflammatory medication are used by many people with chronic inflammatory diseases. When the symptoms are under control and the medication is phased out over time, the complaints usually come back. This is because the source of the problem has not been resolved.

The cause can only be found through targeted research.

By targeted research in a private laboratory we reveal the cause of the complaints you experience. This research forms the common thread in our guidance programs.

Information from stool research

How your digestive system functions:
Your intestines are part of your digestive system. Your digestive system is formed by a number of organs that together ensure that you can digest the food you eat, making it availble for your body. If one of these organs functions less, this can cause problems in the ability to digest the food.

Composition of intestinal flora:
Have you ever heard of “intestinal flora”? The intestinal flora is in your intestines. These are billions of bacteria present in different groups in your intestines. If your intestinal flora is in balance, this ensures optimum digestion. An imbalance or bacterial overgrowth can lead to various problems such as the development of inflammation. The image below shows the intestinal flora from a stool examination.

In the image you see “*” at “Lactobacillus spp.” This shows that a different value has been established here. In this case the Lactobacillus is insufficiently present, which causes an imbalance in the intestinal flora and thus the digestion of the food. With the stool research you can further demonstrate whether you can properly digest proteins and fats. Whether there is a fungus, yeast or parasite in your body and various other things.

In the image above a Candida has been diagnosed in “Gisten”  (because its a Dutch test) and below you see secretory IGA (this is about the activity of the immune system in the intestine) that a lot is going on in the intestine.

This is therefore a signal that a parasite is present. Both the Candida and the parasite affect the intestinal wall, disrupt digestion and in this case were the cause of the complaints behind the diagnosis of Crohn’s disease.

It is important to know that today 70 different species of parasites have been identified. In a regular parasite test, 5 species are usually examined. If no parasite is detected, this does not mean that no parasite is present. It says that the 5 species tested are not present. If a parasite is detected, always ask for a check to see if the treatment went well.

By treating the source of your complaints you ensure sustainable recovery of your intestines and your health.
