Stool, Blood, Saliva and Breath Testing for Digestion
It is estimated that some form of digestive disorder affects 1 in 3 women. For some people, digestive disorders are a source of irritation and discomfort that may cause them to drastically limit their lifestyles and to frequently miss work.
The gastrointestinal tract (GIT) is a long muscular tube that functions as the food processor for the human body. The digestive system includes the following organs: mouth and salivary glands, stomach, small and large intestines, colon, liver and pancreas, and the gallbladder.
Irritations or inflammation of the various sections of the GIT are identified as gastritis (stomach), colitis (colon), ileitis (ileum or small intestines), hepatitis (liver), and cholecystitis (gallbladder).
The GIT is not a passive system. Rather, it has the capability to sense and react to the materials that are passed through it. For a healthy digestive system, every person requires different food selections that match their GIT capacity.
Symptoms of Digestive Weakness Include:
- Irritable bowel
- Candida Albicans
