“Some of the things that people come to see me for are GI complaints. Maybe they have bloating after eating, constipation, diarrhea, history of IBS. One of the things that you can do in the alternative medicine world is look at someone’s stool sample and see if they have all the good bacteria, all the good probiotics that they need, do they have all the good ‘bugs’ that technically live there but shouldn’t be overgrowing like e-coli.
The test also looks at the health of the intestine, are they digesting their food is their pancreas working appropriately. When we eat we release enzymes that break down food, nutrients is absorbed and then we eliminate it.
If something is wrong in that process you’re going to have inflammation and disease development. I think that because of the stress we have in society we’re seeing a lot more of that and the beauty is that you can test it, see what’s going on and treat it.”
