The Comprehensive Stool Test That I Utilize Provides a Five-Page Report
From This Report, I Customize Each Patients Treatment Plan According to Their Results
Helping to Restore the Integrity of My Patients Gut
On my radio program, in my books and at public lectures, I talk a lot about the relationship of the bacteria living in your gut and chronic disease. In my clinic I help restore my patients’ beneficial bacteria and eliminate the harmful bacteria with diet, lifestyle modifications and supplements. But I don’t guess, I test with a comprehensive stool test that provides me with a five page report on the condition of my patients gut. From the stool test report I customize each persons’ treatment plan according to the results of their test. I use diet, supplements and lifestyle modifications to restore the integrity of my patients gut. Modern medicine is taking a different, riskier approach to the same problem.
Believe it or not, fecal transplants are becoming an increasingly popular treatment in hospitals for conditions like recurrent C. Difficile, Ulcerative Colitis, Autism, Parkinson’s and several other chronic diseases. Patients desperate for a cure are turning to fecal implants as the last straw. However, health authorities admit they know little to nothing about the side effects/risks and long-term safety of this new procedure. Let me explain. Besides the “Yuk Factor” when the thought of a fecal implant is mentioned, there are lot more serious considerations to ponder. Scientists admit that changing the mix of bacteria when you get this transplant may alter the person who is getting it to take on some of the characteristics of the donor. Depression, Anxiety, Fatigue and Obesity may be a result from the donor. Long term, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Cancer??? Nobody really knows.
