Stool Study – Parasite, Yeast, Bacteria, Fungus and Mold
Many people are walking around right now with parasites, yeast, bacteria and mold in their body and they have no idea of it. How does it get there? The major forms of contamination are through food, water, pets and person to person.
It is estimated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that the number of parasites in the US alone range in the thousands. In addition, it has been written that 132 different types of parasite and worms can survive in the human body. The CDC also estimates that Salmonella–commonly found in poultry, eggs, meat, and milk– sickens as many as 4 million and kills 1,000 per year nationwide. Campylobacter, found mostly in poultry, is responsible for 6 million illnesses and 75 deaths per year in the United States. A May 1997 presidential report, “Food Safety from Farm to Table,” estimates that “millions” of Americans are stricken by food-borne illness each year and some 9,000, mostly the very young and elderly, die as a result.
Is it possible you have a parasite, yeast, bacteria or some other critter in your gut that shouldn’t be there? Yes!
When a person has some type of bug in the intestines they can have several different signs or symptoms:
- Pain or a fullness in the right ribcage just under the chest
- Bloating after eating or drinking
- Bloody stool
- Pain that radiates into the right shoulder blade
- Problems with sleep
- Irritable Bowel type symptoms
Patients with Rosacea, Psoriasis, Eczema and/or Arthritis have reported benefit as it is guessed that the toxins from the intestines can implant into the surface of the skin and/or joints and can cause problems in those areas.
One thing people don’t realize is these intestinal bugs can wear down the lining in the intestines. When the lining has been worn down the toxins that are in the intestines start to get through and get into the blood stream. These toxins can then cause a variety of other problems.
Below is a picture of the lining of your intestines. You’ll see each yellow finger, called villi, have a whitish border. In your intestinal tract you make stool and stool or fecal material AKA poop is pretty toxic stuff. That border around the yellowish fingers (villi) in your intestines protect your body by stopping the toxins from getting into your blood stream.
Here is a picture of one villi called a villus. Notice there is an artery inside the villus. The red cells on the outside protect the artery from the toxins in the intestines. Remember there is poop in your intestines and poop is toxic. You definitely don’t want those toxins getting into your bloodstream.
This is looking at one Villus laying on its side. Notice some of the red fingers are missing. Parasites, Yeast, Fungus, Mold and Bacteria, can all play a part in destroying the protective red cells inside the intestines. When the protective border gets destroyed or damaged the toxins get through to your blood stream.
Because of the accuracy of our unique initial exam procedure most patient only need a handful of labs which significantly reduces the costs for our patients.
