Many people suffer from digestive problems. It can be anything from flatulence to severe abdominal pain due to illness. With stool samples, answers can be given to many possible causes of the symptoms. Based on the analysis response, the right treatment can be started so that symptoms can be relieved.
The human intestinal system is very complex and must not only digest and absorb food. Other important factors for intestinal health include the many microorganisms that live side by side, as well as the function of the immune system.
Studies show that a healthy gut environment will contain the right amount of beneficial bacteria in balance with other microorganisms. The beneficial bacteria have, among other things, the task of limiting harmful microorganisms, and play an important role in relation to the maintenance of biochemical functions, such as formation of short-chain fatty acids in the colon, digestive function, and maintenance of pH.
CAUSES OF DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS
Today’s lifestyle with stress, bacterial infections, the use of antibiotics and a one-sided dietary intake can cause imbalance in the gastrointestinal tract.
Stress can affect digestion, partly because the mechanical chewing often takes place quickly and not always sufficiently. When the body is stressed, disturbances are seen in the stomach acid production and enzyme production, which can result in undigested food in the intestine. Factors such as these can increase the presence of putrefactive bacteria. If the putrefactive bacteria are allowed to dominate, it can result in symptoms such as foul-smelling stools, flatulence, diarrhea and constipation.
When people get infection or inflammation, they have to take antibiotics. The intake of antibiotics is important in these cases, but antibiotics not only kill the disease-causing bacteria, it can also alter the intestinal flora. When the intestinal flora is deficient in the beneficial bacteria, the amount of unwanted bacteria can increase and irritation and unwanted passage can occur in the intestinal mucosa (leaky gut). This results in larger molecules being able to pass and cause symptoms such as may manifest as food reactions.
Do you eat uniformly every day, with e.g. limited intake of fruits and vegetables or mainly white bread, there is a risk of getting a functional lack of nutrients. Other important factors that may be missing may be dietary fiber, which is also important for bowel function. From them, short-chain fatty acids are formed in the intestine, but they also help the intestine to get rid of the stool, by influencing the peristalsis (movement) in the intestine. If you do not get enough fiber, it can, among other things. result in constipation, limited detoxification function and overgrowth of putrefactive bacteria.
How to create balance in the intestine:
With faecal analyzes you get to know what imbalances are in the gastrointestinal tract, and with the right knowledge, a targeted treatment plan can be prepared in relation to restoring a healthy digestive function. The treatment plan can include removing unwanted bacteria, reintroducing beneficial lactic acid bacteria, balancing the pH, the whole gut by inflammation and irritation in the intestinal wall, restoring a proper relationship in the short-chain fatty acids and last but not least supporting digestion.
