The digestive system is often recognised as the foundation for long-term health and well-being.
This is where we digest and absorb nutrients required for every bodily function and provide the building blocks to continuously repair and create each cell of the human body.

There are simply so many we couldn’t include them all…

Certain digestive parasites may cause symptoms such as bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, digestive discomfort, flatulence, digestive ‘heaviness’, nausea, digestive pains and typical “IBS” (irritable bowel syndrome) symptoms which may appear to come and go or worsen over the day.
Often our patients describe how they have tried to pinpoint if these symptoms are attributed to different dietary food intakes, such as a trial to restrict lactose, gluten, wheat, or Fodmaps for a period of time without success in resolving their symptoms.
After a thorough discussion regarding the individual symptoms, timing, duration, and distinct nature of our of patient’s digestion system, with our years of clinical experience we can confidently discuss and organise specific digestive testing to find answers and solutions for digestive health.
National and International Specialised Stool Tests
We offer a wide array of accredited national and international digestive and digestive stool testing options with simply too many to list. Many of these focus on the function of digestive capacity including whether we are able to break down and digest food in its small nutrient building blocks, whether the digestive tract mucosal lining is inflamed, the integrity of the digestive mucosal lining (often termed “leaky gut” online), immunological activation within the digestive tract, wide panels of microbiome and microbiota testing, and so much more!
Just some of these include:
Did you know there are an array of blood tests we routinely perform which not only tell us exciting information about our patient’s digestive health but further information on their ability to repair their digestive tract mucosal lining, such as vitamin A, zinc, Manganese, Immunoglobulin A as a marker of digestive tract lining health, coeliac genetics, coeliac serology screen, copper, Helicobacter (H pylori) antibody testing, vitamin D, intrinsic factor antibodies, parietal cell antibodies, pancreatic elastase plus more!
Coeliac disease testing, often termed ‘coeliac disease screen is a specific blood test for autoimmune markers against gluten and gliadin.
This test is recommended for people suspected of gluten allergy who are still consuming a large amount of dietary daily gluten intake (for optimal results, 3 months of 4-6 slices of bread is recommended, however, thankfully we have other options as well!)
This genetic blood or buccal cell test displays whether a person has a genetically predisposed autoimmune response, allergy, or sensitivity to dietary gluten.
This can be particularly helpful if a person does not wish to consume gluten prior to the standard coeliac disease serology screen or has already eliminated gluten from their diet.
