If your aim is to find out what's causing your constant bloating, wind, acid reflux or your changeable bowel movements and want to stop it, great: you are in the right place.

Bowel health is the number one key to good health. The bowel is the main route for toxin elimination and is where many minerals, water and other substances are absorbed. It also plays a very important role in immunity and believe it or not the bowel is classed as the second brain! As well as carrying 1000's of neurochemicals.
Lots of things can go wrong with digestion and bowel health. Some of them are relatively simple to deal with, and others a lot more complex. Over the years, we have seen many people with a diagnosis of ‘IBS' or myriad digestive symptoms which turned out to be caused by one of the factors below.
Food intolerance is the one of the leading causes, followed by lack of proper digestion and candida overgrowth. For constipation we have found that it is usually a fault of the vagus nerve, and recommend a course of Colonic Irrigation.
You should work with your GP/health professional to rule out acute problems such as bacterial infection (say, picked up on holiday), inflammatory bowel disease (eg Crohn’s and colitis) and coeliac disease.
Whatever, you do, if your problem is chronic, you should take steps to eliminate it rather than continue to suffer.
The Stomach does two main jobs: it produces acid to break down your foods and it kills any opportunistic bacteria and bugs like Candida, E¬ Coli, H¬Pylori and the myriad of other well known bacterias.
Most people that we see suffer from too little stomach acid, commonly known as Hypochloridia, and this is a big one most people think that if you suffer from acid reflux/heartburn that you are producing too much acid and head straight for the Gaviscon, or are prescribed Omeprazole, Lansaprazole or the other Proton Pump inhibitors. All this does is stop your body producing acid and stops your stomach digesting food. The end result is bloating, wind, mushy stools and so on.
Ah, but did you know that the symptoms of hypochlorydia can be exactly the same as having too much stomach acid? The main symptoms of Low stomach acid are:
Having the Digestive Test enables us to test for any deficiencies in acid production, but it does not stop there. What we find is that it is the stomach lining in most cases is weak. Think of it like a bag which holds the acid in; sometimes this bag gets worn and thin, thus allowing acid through. So it's not that there is too much acid, but a thinning of the stomach lining and too little acid combined. We offer expert help and have personal experience of how to heal this.
Usually we also find that if you have excessive acid, that H¬Pylori is sometimes indicated and asking your GP for a test to rule this out is something you may want to explore. You know the saying you are what you eat, well we say you are what you absorb!!!
The Digestive Health Test will also test for any deficiencies in B12 and all the B Vitamins, as usually B12 is one of the main culprits in not being able to absorb your foods, causing further digestive upset and lethargy.
According to our records at least 95% of our clients have suffered from Bloating at some stage. This is a most uncomfortable symptom and as before can be a usually put down to a number of factors:
The Digestive Health Test will test for all items to ensure that all areas are covered, giving you a Comprehensive Report and advice on how to implement an action plan to aid you back to health.
So many clients of ours have been through a whole batch of Hospital tests and doctors appointments to be told it must be Irritable Bowel and 'we cannot do anything' and hand out some form of medication, but still feel that there is something else that is causing there symptoms. Some of the main causes of Irritable Bowel are:
Our Digestive Health Test will rule out any Food Intolerances, identify any issues in Gut Bacteria, check any deficiencies in Digestive Enzyme function and identify any unhelpful bacteria.
Passing Intestinal Wind is normal, but normal does not mean worry free. Even the average amount of wind can cause discomfort for some people and in others the frequency and odour are much greater, and tells us things are not as they should be. Usually Odorous wind is a sign the bowel is fermenting and there is too much bad bacteria in the colon. If your stools are very smelly then again that is a sign that there is too much bad bacteria and over-fermentation.
Flatulence/Wind is usually due to Chemical reactions due to food like Sprouts, Beans, Cabbage, and Onions, or the over consumption of sugars, Stress
Stress interferes with digestion, and most likely are Food Sensitivities and Allergies.
A Course of Colonic Irrigation can be most helpful to eliminate the bad bacteria and help release the blocked wind.
Our Digestive Health Test will rule out any Food Intolerances, Identify any unfavourable gut bacteria, ( we usually carry between 5¬-15lbs of stool in our Colon at any one time), test for any Vitamin or Mineral Deficiencies, Candida and more.
Bloating, sinus/skin problems, fatigue
Candida Albicans is a naturally occuring yeast species that is found in the large intestine, genital tract, mouth and throat. Under normal conditions it is compatible with good health and usually kept under control by beneficial bacterial flora, the immune system and proper intestinal pH.
However, under certain circumstances, Candida can become pathogenic and may overgrow, leading to a pronounced immunological reaction. This can cause a wide variety of symptoms:
Food Intolerances, frequent antibiotic use and high stress levels are all common culprits which can disrupt the protective bacterial flora of the digestive tract and allow this yeast to easily proliferate. The analytes used in this test can detect antibodies produced against many types of candida species.
Consider our Digestive Health Test which will identify any Food Intolerances and help you eliminate any food causing problems, like wheat, alcohol, sugar etc. The test will also identify the type of Candida present ( albicans is the most common) but there are many others.We also test for any unfavourable bacteria’s,Deficiencies in Vitamins ,Minerals and all essential fatty acids,and much more.

I am very happy with this product, very easy to use and I got my results back within two weeks which showed I have a high intolerance to yeast (which explains a lot of symptoms I have). Unfortunately it means bye bye to bread..pasta..and sugary foods for a while
I had number of Health problems: eczema, spots, constipation, constantly bloated, very windy and they all gone now, thanks to this test! At first I could not justify paying for a test like this, but after research I found this is my most cost effective option and I must say this is the best spent money in my life ever! I'm so fit and healthy now! thank you very much! Lots of people asked me what have I done and I just keep on recommending this test to everyone. Half of my family had this test and we are all satisfied and very happy now... BIG THANK YOU!!
I use love bacon omelettes, ham, chicken and toast. My intolerance from the teset results were wheat, ham, chicken and hens eggs! Since then I had cut those out of my diet and I haven't had noticeable bad backache's since avoiding. Assuming its some sort of muscle inflammation that has been 'sorted'
