Why you should do it and what you will learn from it.
At The A Life, we prides ourselves on getting to the root cause of any dis-ease in the body. Which often leads up to investigating gut health. Starting with your gut, allows us to work with you to manage your symptoms holistically.
Some people undergo gut testing due to digestive complaints of constipation or diarrhoea, bloating, gas, cramping, food intolerances, reflux etc. For others it relevant to energy and fatigue, mood and cognition, fluid retention, weight management, hormone imbalance and autoimmune conditions.
So why do we use a stool test?
- We test so we don’t guess!
This is a big thing for us here at The A Life. We don’t want to practice “trial and error” with you. We want to know what’s going on in your gut so that we can get really specific about how we can support your gut and more so, how your gut might be the root cause for other issues you are experiencing systemically in your body.
- See what you can’t see.
What’s going on in your gut can only be uncovered by a stool test. With this we are able to access information regarding what inhabits your gut, how your body is digesting and absorbing and if there are any other influencing factors to your gut health and overall health.
- The Facts and you.
Not every gut protocol is created equally. Some people might think they have a formula for how to manage bloating, reduce constipation or relieve other gastrointestinal symptoms. And more of the time they might work. But instead we want to have the facts so that we can formulate and individualised treatment approach to suit your needs and individual case. Nutrition isn’t a poncho… it’s not one size fits all.
