COVID-19

COVID-19: Our team has implemented changes to be compliant with CDC guidelines and are currently making/keeping appointments to see patients who have not traveled within the past 2 weeks, are not running a fever, do not have a dry cough, and are not suspected to be infected. As we continue to follow our state board as to the role of chiropractors in the current pandemic, keeping safety of our patients and staff top priority, we thank you for understanding this is subject to change.

Comprehensive Stool Analysis

This test is useful for

  • Gastrointestinal Symptoms
  • Autoimmune Disease
  • Joint Pain
  • IBD/IBS
  • Inflammation
  • Food Sensitivities
  • Nutritional Deficiencies
  • Skin Conditions (Atopic Dermatitis)

 

Poor digestion and malabsorption of vital nutrients can contribute to degenerative diseases, compromised immune status and nutritional deficiencies. Impairment of the highly specific nutrient uptake processes, or compromised GI barrier function, as in “leaky gut syndrome,” can result from a number of causes including:

  • Low gastric acid production
  • Chronic maldigestion
  • Food allergen impact on bowel absorptive surfaces
  • Bacterial overgrowth or imbalances (dysbiosis)
  • Pathogenic bacteria, yeast or parasites and related toxic irritants
  • The use of NSAIDs and antibiotics

A comprehensive stool analysis is vital because it helps assess digestive and absorptive functions, detect pathogens and/or parasites, and identify specific bacteria and yeast.
