This is a non-invasive and easy-to-use test that can provide crucial insights into your health. The Parasite Stool Test can be added to your Microbiome Analysis as a comprehensive diagnostic tool that can identify worms and single-celled organisms such as Blastocystis hominis, amoeba, liver fluke and more.

Hormone & Adrenal Health
DUTCH offers the most extensive profile of sex and adrenal hormones along with their metabolites. Additionally, the daily (diurnal) pattern of free cortisol is included along with melatonin. This unique combination of clinical information is not available by any other method. Women: Millions of women suffer from hormonal imbalances. Identifying the root cause of chronic health issues is certainly correctable, but only if properly identified. The dried urine collection process is great for baseline measurements of women with hormonal imbalances and for Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) monitoring. Men: Over time, men experience a gradual loss of their hormones that are produced in the gonads and adrenal glands. Testosterone and DHEA levels fall and estrogen levels tend to rise. Many men feel like this is part of getting older and do not think there is treatment to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle. The DUTCH test was created to provide insight, in one easy to administer test.
Food Sensitivity Test

Auto-immunity & Leaky Gut Syndrome
The Auto-Immunity and Leaky Gut Stool Test is a powerful diagnostic tool for those seeking to get to the root cause of their chronic health issues. This functional stool analysis test checks for markers that indicate the presence of auto-immune conditions and leaky gut syndrome, which are often overlooked in traditional medical testing. Once we have identified the root causes of your symptoms, we can develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. This test is fully customisable Indications: Allergies, food sensitivities, chronic health complaints, auto-immune disorders, inflammatory conditions.
Hair Elements & Heavy Metals
Analysis of hair elements can reveal information about current and past exposure to potentially harmful metals as well as the time-averaged status of particular nutritional elements. Merely 0.25 grams of hair are needed for this non-invasive screening procedure. Hair may contain 200–300 times more highly concentrated toxic substances than blood or urine. Consequently, hair is the best tissue to use when determining whether a person has recently been exposed to substances like arsenic, aluminum, cadmium, lead, antimony, and mercury.
