GI MAP Stool Test
The GI-MAP Stool Analysis Test is the most thorough stool test on the market. It is a comprehensive stool analysis that identifies your levels of normal (good) bacteria as well as dysbiotic (bad) bacteria in the gut. It is a fantastic way to measure imbalances of bacteria.
In addition to bacteria, the GI-MAP can detect Candida and other fungi, and parasites, including both protozoa and worms. This comprehensive stool test can reveal if you have H. pylori, viral pathogens, potential autoimmune triggers, and viruses, including cytomegalovirus and Epstein Barr virus.
The GI-MAP is the only FDA-approved DNA test for gastrointestinal microbes and pathogens available. The GI Map reveals the health of your intestines with digestion, gastrointestinal, Secretory and Anti-gliadin IgA (immune response), and calprotectin (inflammation) markers.
Another great thing about the GI-MAP is that the test gives actionable biomarkers. The GI-MAP looks at all the major factors that can influence the health of the gut and what compounds will work best to eliminate the various pathogens. For more information on the GI-MAP and how to order, go here.

The Digestive Health Panel tests for parasites, 48 possible yeast and fungal species, and pathogenic and beneficial bacteria. It also has digestion and absorption markers, inflammatory markers, intestinal immune function, inflammation markers, and overall intestinal health markers.
The Digestive Health Panel reveals pathogen susceptibility to various antimicrobials. This information allows your practitioner to devise an effective treatment plan for eliminating the infection or overgrowth. To learn more about the Digestive Health Panel, check out this page.
