The 401 H Intestinal Screen

If so, you may be suffering from an intestinal infection. We share our environment with all kinds of bugs! Parasites, fungi, and bacteria have been around longer than we have and in some ways, have superior survival mechanisms. While some micro-organisms are beneficial to our body others we come in contact with in our daily lives can be extremely damaging – especially if the body is out of balance and unable to get rid of these critters on its own. Pathogenic organisms such as bacteria, parasites, and fungi do not belong in the body and can have a slow steady detrimental effect on your health. Unfortunately, symptoms of pathogen infections are often misdiagnosed and treated with medications that can further disrupt the system.

Optimal intestinal health is a prerequisite for proper body function. The functions of digestion and absorption are so fundamental to our body’s ability to maintain balance that every physiological process is ultimately dependent upon digestive heatlh. Suboptimal digestive function can be either a basic cause of or a substantial contributor to a variety of disorders, some of which may have seemingly little or no obvious clinical correlation to intestinal physiology. This reliable intestinal microflora screen documents parasitic and pathogenic involvement that can interfere with normal gastrointestinal function and develop into a health related condition.

The 401H stool analysis determines the presence of ova and parasites such as:

  • Protozoa, flatworms, or roundworms
  • Immunoglobulin G (IgG) to Cryptosporidium parvum
  • Entamoeba histolytica , and Giardia lamblia antigens in stool
  • Bacteria, fungi (including yeasts), and occult blood
  • Clostridium difficile colitis toxins A and B
  • Giardia lamblia BHD #414
  • Cryptosporidium parvum #415
  • Entamoeba histolytica #416
  • Helicobacter pylori #418

Six stool samples and one smear are taken over a four-day period, providing a highly reliable comprehensive analysis of intestinal microflora. Proper testing and treatment are crucial to regaining your health!
