  • Bacterial balance: identifying if the bacterial balance of the intestine is appropriate or if there are harmful bacteria affecting the health
  • Yeast/fungal strains including candida
  • Parasites; tested for both as an ova and parasite, but importantly a more sensitive antibody/antigen test
  • Helicobactor pylori antibody test (also, when needed, a helicobactor breath test can be done (this is often done to confirm that antibiotic treatment has been successful)
