The GI Effects Stool Test
The GI Effects Stool test uses DNA analysis to assess the presence of unfriendly organisms, like fungus, bacteria and parasites, and the health of the gut, which is much more effective and accurate than the standard culture based stool testing.
Unlike classic stool testing, the GI Effects can identify both aerobes and anaerobes and has the capability to detect parasites in as few as 5 cells per gram, which is a 5000-fold increase in sensitivity in comparison to microscopy.
Parasites are notoriously difficult to identify and often go undetected, thus the DNA testing significantly increases one's ability to locate them. Prior to the use of DNA analysis used in the GI Effects test anaerobes were immeasurable, even though they comprise more than 95% of the gut.
Gut dysbiosis plays a crucial role in pretty much all health conditions, and gut dysbiosis is caused by the proliferation of pathogenic parasites, yeast and/or bacteria. The health of your gut is directly related to your overall health. As a matter of fact, many practitioners believe that all disease begins in the gut.
Benefits of the GI Effects Stool Test
Measures healthy or beneficial flora, which is crucial for controlling the bad organisms.
In standard culture based stool testing you had to collect several stool samples over a period of days, with DNA analysis only one sample is needed, which results in an easier process and a more compliant individual.
Identifies antibiotic and herbal resistance. DNA analysis allows the lab to identify if the organism is resistant to a particular prescription or herbal treatment.
Standard stool testing is vulnerable to changes in microbes during transport, while DNA analysis provides a more stable sample.
Greater and superior ability to detect parasites and anaerobes.
Why Get the GI Effects Stool Test?
Gut dysbiosis is a root factor in many common health conditions.
Your ability to digest and absorb essential nutrients and rid the body of toxins and waste is completely dependent upon the health of your GI tract. Elimination problems, malabsorption and impaired digestion lead to nutritional deficiencies, toxin build up and poor health.
The health of your gut has a profound impact on your brain, nervous system and immune system. For example, about 80% of your immune system resides in your gut.
Unfriendly organisms, like fungus, parasites and bacteria produce toxins in your body. Like any toxin, these toxins disrupt and harm your organs and systems.
If you are experiencing gastrointestinal symptoms like frequent gas, burping, bloating, swelling, indigestion, heart burn, abdominal pain, acid reflux, or any of the conditions associated with the GI tract like food sensitivities, leaky gut, crohn's, colitis, irritable bowel etc. then this is an indication that there is an imbalance of flora in your gut. These types of symptoms do not appear for no reason at all.
Additionally, the impact of the toxins emitted from these unfriendly organisms on the brain, nervous system, cardiovascular system etc., can cause numerous other symptoms that one would never connect to their gastrointestinal tract, like depression, hyperactivity, autism, headaches, fatigue, anxiety, anxiety attacks, brain fog, memory loss, inability to concentrate, trembling or nervousness, heart palpitations, increased blood pressure, restless legs, join pain and inflammation or arthritis and many more.
If you have any of these symptoms, it is in your best interest to assess the health of your gastrointestinal tract and the GI Effects Stool test is the best tool available for this purpose.

As you may have heard me say before, most everything I present to you on this site is based on personal experience and I don't advocate anything unless I have a strong belief in its effectiveness. Like many people, I had standard culture based stool testing in the past and found nothing. I recommend the GI Effects Stool test because I found it to be a superior tool at identifying issues that went previously undetected.
