Gastrointestinal Function

Why Use Targeted Gastrointestinal Function Testing?

blue-box-retouchedProper Gastrointestinal function is critical for good health. The intestinal tract contains significant amounts of bacteria, which, when imbalanced, scientific literature has associated with a wide variety of common illnesses including:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Autoimmune Disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular Disease

Additionally, balancing gut microbiota is key for improving core gastrointestinal functions, such as digestion and absorption of nutrients, as well as metabolic functions. Poor digestion and malabsorption may impact immune function, optimum nutritional status, and mood.

GI tests offer a comprehensive view of the function of the gastrointestinal tract including assessment of inflammation, insufficiency and infection. Prices Vary – Please Call To Inquire: 250.954.2273
