This is the testing I’ve used on myself over the past 4 years while I was recovering my digestive health. The tests I has done for digestive health and adrenal status costs between $210 and $285 and is usually not covered by insurance. It gave me useful information for improvements I was making through great food and supplementation. I ran it again in February of this year to see how everything was going. Unexpectedly, the parasite blastocystis hominis showed up. I was not having an symptoms from this. The medical world doesn’t consider this even to be a harmful organism but the more natural healing world considers it an imbalance that stresses the body. Parasites are treated with antibiotics but can also be treated with herbs to kill off the organism. The difference is antibiotics are given for 10 days (heavy artillery) where herbs take up to 10 weeks (more gentle on the body). I chose the 10 week protocol with my attitude of Healthy Determination.
