Isabelle from Toronto had played in streams and lakes as a kid and had always had a few minor digestive symptoms.
Recently, though, she’d started feeling much worse and was struggling to sleep, feeling down and depressed, tired, and having a hard time keeping food down.
In fact, her diet was so limited that she could only eat five or six different foods.
She was losing weight, and the doctors were at a loss as to why.
I really thought I could help, but Isabelle’s case turned out to be much tougher than I expected.
Isabelle’s stool test
We ran a stool test because I figured the answer would be in her digestive system.
Here’s what we found.
She also had an unidentified parasite and a heavy case of fungal overgrowth.
I was convinced that clearing these “bad bugs” would resolve Isabelle’s symptoms.
As always I recommended some herbal protocols to help eradicate these bad bugs, and after 90-days we ran a retest to check on Isabelle’s progress.
As you can see below, all her bad bugs had gone away, which was really pleasing.
I’ve chosen this case study for an important reason.
Despite Isabelle getting rid of her bad bugs she didn’t feel better.
In fact, she was feeling worse by the day, and the whole family was desperately worried (as was I).
I knew something else must be causing Isabelle’s symptoms, so I recommended the family get their home tested for environmental toxins.
They followed through with the recommendation, and the results were staggering.
In Isabelle’s bedroom, some wall insulation was spewing our formaldehyde gas.
Formaldehyde is a potent toxin.
This was the missing link in her symptoms.
It’s not always about food and bad bugs
Part of our job is to know when someone else can help a patient more than we can.
I immediately referred the family to a detox center in the U.S. to get some serious medical help for Isabelle’s condition.
After her treatment, Isabelle’s Mum wrote me this message:
“Isabelle is doing fine. I do not understand what happened but she does not have any of the prior symptoms that she was experiencing the past two years. We will never forget you.”
The point of this case study is not to blow my own trumpet.
It’s to get serious and acknowledge that your environment can make you ill.
Some cases are beyond our skill level and we always refer out to get the best result for our clients.
In Idelle’s case, the stool test and herbal cleansing we worked through didn’t help her feel better.
However, without the stool test, we wouldn’t have been able to work through a process of elimination that led to Isabelle getting well.
It was precisely the fact that 60-90 days of digestive cleansing didn’t work that eventually led us to the answer.
Sometimes the answer comes when a certain approach fails to work.
Isabelle is an exception, not the rule
I regard Isabelle’s case as one of the most fulfilling I’ve worked on, but it was an exceptional case.
90% of the people who order a stool test from us experience huge relief from their symptoms when they find out what’s going on in their stomach and intestine.
Once the info has been gathered via a stool test, a targeted series of protocols, along with careful dietary and lifestyle considerations, usually get people feeling great again.
If you don’t have a healthy digestive system, your body can’t work properly.
If you have digestive trouble and you don’t know why, getting the right test is the only way you’ll be able to create a roadmap to recovery.
That’s why I continually encourage you to bite the bullet and get tested.
It’s not pleasant to provide a stool sample, but it’s a lot more pleasant than a lifetime of symptoms or disease.
I’m very biased, of course, but I think a stool test is one of the best things anyone can do to beat mysterious digestive, energy, mood, skin and other symptoms.
And look, if the test fails to explain why you’re experiencing symptoms, I’ll refund every penny or cent.
It really is an investment in your health, and it’s risk-free.
