Intestinal candida, yeast & bacteria laboratory testing
The laboratory complete intestinal colonisation test
There are different candida strains which, given a favourable environment, send out filaments that steadfastly cling to the intestinal wall. A low sugar diet will cause them to become dormant, only to flare up again later. These different strains and their virulence cannot be identified with any certainty say, at a colon hydrotherapy session, as the individual cells are not visible to the naked eye. So, only a laboratory test can identify the organisms specified below and their virulence with certainty, regimens specifically targeted and continued misery avoided.
The complete status of intestinal colonisation is the ultimate stool test for anyone suffering from intestinal distress. It analyses all yeast (including candida), moulds, and the representative strains of aerobic and anaerobic bacteria and their virulence. A free mouth swab is included.
The human intestine is host to many different kinds of bacteria, some beneficial and others detrimental to health. Their growth depends on what we eat, so that an unbalanced diet will enhance the growth of some and inhibit others.
A fat and protein rich diet will favour putrefaction bacteria, resulting in excessive gas, causing abdominal pain and bloating.. Also, harmful metabolites from these bacteria enter the blood stream, often resulting in headaches, migraines, joint pain and chronic fatigue.
The beneficial intestinal flora is also weakened by antibiotics, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and consumption of foods and substances which cause allergies. Damage to beneficial intestinal bacteria ultimately results in new allergies and other intestinal diseases.
Who does the screening?
Testing is at the German Dr Hauss laboratory, run by micro-biologist Dr Reinhard Hauss, PhD and Dr Helga Hauss, MD, Dermatology Consultant. In Germany, laboratories are under the supervision of health authorities.
Symptoms that may indicate a disturbed intestinal colonisation:
Diarrhoea and/or constipation
Gas, heavy bloating, cramps
Problems after antibiotic treatment
Headaches or migraines
Weight loss or gain
Foul smelling stools
Allergies, e.g. eczema
How long for the test results to arrive?
About a fortnight. Laboratory cultures have to be made.
What will you receive?
A covering letter explaining the individual findings.
Individually tailored therapy suggestions.
General treatment information.
Please note that the £95 fee is not refundable once the sample has sent to the laboratory.
It is strongly suggested that any treatments be entered into as adjuncts to a colon hydrotherapy course.
