Why I Always Test for Gut Parasites, Bacteria and Fungi at the Same Time

After a 5 day Mexico vacation last fall, I had signs of a parasite infection. Every other week I would have explosive diarrhea. On my non-diarrhea week, I would just have soft stools.

So I got tested for gut parasites, fungi and bacteria. I was pretty sure I had parasites because my symptoms seemed cyclical.

Surprisingly, I came back negative for all parasites (see below):

My parasite + candida test results: candida dividing (possible indication of candida overgrowth), epithelial squamous cells (likely indicates something assaulting the lining of my colon), starch granules (likely indicates poor digestion of starches), mucus (likely indicates inflammation of some part of my GI tract)

I was seemingly positive for a minor gut candida infection (see above), but I didn't believe it was enough to cause such severe diarrhea.

So I waited for my bacterial culture test results. The bacterial swab results would show if I had a bacterial infection, and would also show if the candida was pathogenic.

My bacterial culture test results: I tested positive for a heavy infection of klebsiella sp. The max score is a 4, so a +3 is almost the heaviest infection that I could test positive for. I didn't highlight the e coli infection because nearly everyone tests positive for it, and helpful e coli strains are commonly found in our gut (some strains produce vitamin K or B12). Candida overgrowth did not show up on the swab, so odds are good that I do not actually have a pathogenic version of candida.

Klebsiella sp. is a bacterial gut infection that can cause digestive issues. But if left unchecked, Klebsiella pneumonia could travel to my lungs, become walking pneumonia, and lead to hospitalization...or even death.

Yes this was a scary test result, but I now knew the "dragon" I had to fight. I reached out to my health team, we formed a battle plan, and I worked aggressively to make myself a bad host for these bacterial invaders.

How I Felt After I Cleansed My Bacterial Infection

After cleansing this infection, here's what's different:

  • my chronic explosive diarrhea is 100% gone
  • mentally I feel as sharp was when I was in college (which was 20 years ago)
  • I lost 45 lbs
  • I don't have brain fog that had me constantly searching for words in the middle of a conversation
  • my jock-itch infection is gone
  • I can work full, super productive days (I could work a max of 3 hours per day before the cleanse)
  • my gums are healthier (gums stopped bleeding, breath smells better)

It's not an exaggeration to say that these test results put my life on a healthy path. This test showed me that klebsiella pneumonia was taking over my gut...and defeating it gave me my health (and life) back.

The 48 Gut Invaders Home Test gave me the information I needed to start addressing my health problems. After doing a deep cleanse, I now have enough energy to keep improving I even have extra energy to spend doing 1 on 1 coaching for parasite, candida and bacterial cleanses.

This test gave me the exact information I needed to improve my health. If I had only been taking antiparasitics, then I would have missed the true cause of my infection: a bacterial infection.

It's my hope that this test will give you the exact information you need to improve your health.

Here's how the test kit works:

Do you see the top of the vial? The top has a small scooper attached to it. You scoop the top part of your poop, and put it in the vial.

It's very hygienic, and you won't have to touch any stool. In fact to make it even more hygienic, we include 4 stool sample collection bags.

These bags are biodegradable, and you can flush them down the toilet after you've collected your samples. Again, as hygienic as possible, and easy to use!

You'll put 2 days of stool samples in each vial. Since there are 2 vials, that means you'll have 4 days of samples total...making sure you'll catch even rare, cyclical parasites.

If you don't have daily bowel movements, click here to learn what you can do.

To check for gut bacteria overgrowth and infection, you use the long q-tip. You rub the long q-tip on the top of your stool.

When doing the swab test, you just have to be careful not to touch it to other surfaces like your skin, or the toilet bowl. Otherwise the samples will grow the wrong bacteria.

You then put the swab back into the tube (it fits perfectly), and ship it back to the lab with your stool samples.

The swab is then grown in a petri dish. We can then identify over a dozen bacterial infections that may be the root cause of your digestive issues.

How Can Our Parasite Test Kit Find Even Rare Parasites?

When evaluating the parasite testing kits, here is the most important thing...Will the test miss any parasites you might have?

With today's global food trade and immigration, parasites from any country can be caught in the USA. So you need a test kit that will look for even the uncommon, foreign parasites.

Our research found that most parasite testing kits looked for just 3 to 6 USA parasites. But just our parasite stool test can find up 31 parasites...from every continent.

I explain how we find so many more parasites in the next section...

How can the 48 Gut Invaders™ Home Test Kit find 25 to 28 more parasites?

The answer comes down to 1 man - world renowned Parasitologist Dr. Omar M. Amin. He created the most accurate parasite laboratory known to man. And Dr. Armin's lab is where parasites from the 48 Gut Invaders™ Home Test Kit are diagnosed.

The stool test Dr. Amin created is unique in 3 ways:

  1. Experienced Ph.D. parasite researchers won't miss your parasites - the lab technicians at Dr. Amin's lab all have Ph.D.'s, and have done parasite research all over the world (including Egypt and Ukraine). Their research experience makes sure they'll find even rare parasite infections.
  2. Parasite eggs 100x smaller than a human hair are visible with high contrast dyes - parasites aren't always present in the stool sample. Sometimes, just their eggs are there. Using high contrast dyes, Dr. Amin's lab can find parasite eggs other labs will miss.
  3. Specialized preservation fluids preserve all signs of parasites - when you take a stool sample, it should be preserved so that it kills the parasites. But, some cheap preservation fluids also destroy signs of the parasite infection - Dr. Amin's preservation formula makes sure all signs of parasite infection are perfectly preserved.

These 3 factors mean the 48 Gut Invaders™ Home Test Kit can find 31 parasites, when other parasite tests can only find 3 to 6 parasites.

Who Should Get Tested for Bacterial Gut Infections?

I encourage people with digestive issues to take our bacterial swab test included in the 48 Gut Invaders™ Home Test.

Many just want to get tested for parasites & candida, but the symptoms of a parasite infection and a bacterial infection can heavily overlap.

Our Bacterial Test Finds Problems That Other Tests Miss

Because our lab uses bacterial culturing, we can find problems that other lab tests miss. Our test can detect gut infections by aggressive, pathogenic bacteria. But our test can detect neutral bacteria that may have overgrown your guts, and are now causing problems.

Is Your Bacteria Antibiotic Resistant?

Antibiotic resistance is a growing problem. To help your doctor treat your infection, our test checks for antibiotic resistance.

Once the lab receives your stool sample, any pathogens that are collected on the Swab are cultured and will grow on an agar plate, or petri dish. A culture and sensitivity report is generated that lists antibiotics that the pathogen is resistant to and most sensitive to. This report helps doctors determine which antibiotic will be the most effective at killing the pathogen. You should get your results within 2 to 3 weeks after the lab receives your culture.

How Does The Lab Analyze Your Bacterial Swab?

Swabs are used to transfer bacteria from your stool, to a petri dish. The bacteria are grown for a few weeks until they can be positively identified as harmful.

Many intestinal bacteria, including E. coli, live in our intestines and are considered “good” bacteria; however, some of the strains can make us sick. (1) The same is true for other bacterial infections identified in the Swab Culture Test.

What Bacteria Can This Test Find?

A stool culture with our test will identify intestinal pathogens that may be making you sick, including Salmonella sp., Escherichia coli, Klebsiellella sp., Vibrio cholera, Citrobacter freundii, Proteus vulgaris, Yersinia sp., Campylobacter sp., and Clostridium difficile.

Parasite Research Lab

Our research parasitologists will examine your stool sample. Other labs look for 3 to 5 common parasites. Our lab looks for 31 parasites - finding even rare parasites. We find more parasites because we have passionate parasitologist researchers looking at your samples. Our researchers take great care with every sample. We find what most labs miss!

Test Created by a Parasitologist

Dr. Omin Armin, publisher of over 250 parasite research papers, created this home parasite test kit. He designed this test to find the maximum number of parasites (31), pathogenic fungi (5), and to find (11) other signs of digestive health problems.

I’ve always been big on health and wellness, especially after diet and lifestyle changes helped me recover from a serious illness. So, when I started hearing more about how parasites can secretly affect our health, I was both intrigued and a bit worried. That's when Evan from stepped in and generously sent me a promotional at-home parasite testing kit.

Using the kit was eye-opening. It was super easy to use, and yep, I found out I've got some uninvited guests. It was a bit of a shock, but honestly, I’m grateful for the knowledge. Now, I’m ready to tackle this with a solid plan, including a killer binder. DONT forget to use a binder!

Evan’s kindness and the mission behind are truly inspiring. They’re all about empowering folks to take charge of their health, and I'm here for it. I’ll be sharing more about my journey to kick these parasites to the curb. If you’re curious about your own health, I can’t recommend this test enough. It’s better to know and deal with it than to be in the dark. Big thanks to Evan and the team!

I did not pay for this product; I received it for promotional purposes.

Do not hesitate to take this test.

Pamela S - 06/02/2023 Verified Buyer verified buyer

This is likely the only test kit (and with helpful-critical knowledge of Evan,) that will actually "pick up" what you have or may be "off", in your gut! I suffered after I believe drinking some bad water, and no doctor could help.. all the standard tests showed zero. After speaking to Evan and following his important instructions, I finally, after 5 long months of suffering (and not normal stuff, but sudden and terrible insomnia, panic attacks and anxiety out of the blue, and more swollen type feeling in stomach-- found out what I had been dealing with, that basically hijacked my neurotransmitters and hormones! (I was on my way to getting prescriptions for anxiety and taking sleeping pills.) But I felt there was a connection with how my gut was bloated and off and was right! Do not hesitate to take this test. It takes a bit of time to do, and results not immediate, but soooo much better than any of the others. I worked with an "alternative doctor" after taking similar herbs and meds to what Evan has. Had I known about the Cleanse-Freedom-Restore right away, I would have just started on that, as I did have to keep switching around what I was taking and it likely took way longer than need be. Evan is a wealth of info on this subject and his knowledge alone is worth it! Thank you, P.S.-Florida

Doctors would just tell me everything is fine and made me feel crazy.

Brandon S - 05/23/2023 Verified Buyer verified buyer

I have had GI problems my entire life. It got to a point where I've been passing blood for over a decade. Doctors would just tell me everything is fine and made me feel crazy. I did find 1 doctor that diagnosed me with H. Pylori infection. Getting treated for that helped but I still had problems. Getting hemorrhoidectomies helped but I was still passing blood. I told some family I think I have parasites 11 years ago but they made me feel crazy and I put it away mentally. After realizing my problems weren't really getting better, the thought of parasites came back. I started doing herbal cleanses for the past 2 years which helped and then I got this test performed. They did find things in me that other parasite tests didn't find (tests that the doctors ordered). Doctors in America believe that only third world countries get parasites. What if you live in a subtropical popular city with people that come and go to/from third world countries? What if you eat undercooked food with parasite eggs? You can step outside barefoot and certain parasites can absorb into your feet pores. Parasites are all around us and doctors only test for a few of the most common parasites. This test is comprehensive. It let me know what is going on inside me. It gave me some peace of mind and let me know that it's not all in my head. They found about 5 different problems in me while everyone close to me thought I was crazy (including my wife but she eventually came around). I have the receipts now. I can bring the results to my doctor and be treated properly. Evan is an amazing guy and was helpful by answering any question I had in a timely fashion. If you have GI problems that aren't going away, or feel like a zombie all of the time while doctors are telling you that everything is fine, then get this test. Don't wait 11+ years like I did. My intuition was right and others shamed me for it, ultimately leading to certain health problems worsening.

Son has a parasitic infection

Melissa A - 04/12/2023 Verified Buyer verified buyer

Evan is truly a Godsend. Through his company, I was able to do comprehensive stool testing for my 2 YO who has been suffering from severe eczema, constipation, allergies, bloating, abdominal pain since 1 month old. It has been very difficult as a parent to watch my child suffer and feel helpless. After finally taking the time to collect my sons stool, Evan has informed me that my son has a parasitic infection, so the dr called in a prescription and my sons skin and itch has cleared up maybe 80%!!! The prescription was low dosage, so he is taking the second dosage soon. But my sons skin calmed down completely after 4 hours of the anti parasitic medicine. I cannot thank Evan enough, he has been a tremendous help to me and my family. He is always accessible via phone, email - any time of the day or night! He is very kind, helpful, ethical, and overall an amazing human being who enjoys what he does because he loves helping to cure people’s root cause. Stop going to DRS who only want to bandaid the problem. The amount of topical steroid prescriptions I threw out! I was determined to get to the root cause, traditional dr office stool tests are not this comprehensive and will never help you. You need this test. A million thank yous to Evan and this company!

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions? Call or text: (303) 699-9474

How long does it take to get the test results?

Parasite test results: about 10 days after you send your samples to the lab, I'll send over your parasite results.

The parasite test results come quickly because the samples just need to be stained, put into a centrifuge, and then examined with a 1000x magnification microscope by our Parasitologists.

Bacterial test results: about 3 weeks after you send your samples to the lab, you'll receive your bacterial test results.

The bacterial test results take a few weeks because the lab grows the stool swab bacteria in a petri dish, and then tests the bacteria's resistance to 15 different antibiotics.

I'm Constipated - What Should I Do?

If your doctor says it's okay, you can take a mild laxative that doesn't contain any antiparasitics. Miralax is one option.

While you're waiting for a bowel movement so you can take more samples, you can store your samples.

One option is to put the sealed sample vials in a clean bag, using clean hands, your fridge. You want to be extremely careful with your hygiene so that you don't contaminate any food or surface in your refrigerator.

Make sure children and animals can't get into the vials. The sample preserving fluid should not be drank or exposed to eyes or skin.

What if I have a parasite or bacterial infection? Will you help me?

Yes and no. I am not a doctor, so I can't recommend treatment. But I have taken these tests, and I have been through what it takes to fix these issues. So I can share with you what I did, and what you might want to ask doctor about.

The test also comes with baseline suggestions for medications to treat parasitic, bacterial and fungal infections. Dietary recommendations may also be mentioned. You should ask your doctor if these general suggestions make sense in your unique situation.

Can children take this test?

As long as an adult supervises and helps, then yes this is a safe test for children. The sample cups contain preserving fluid that is unsafe to drink or expose to eyes. A scooper spoon is provided so the fluid can be kept away from children.

This is an easy test to do safely, and we haven't heard of any parents and their children having issues.

Will someone help me understand the test results?

Absolutely. If you provide a valid phone number, I (Evan Jerkunica) will call you when I have your test results. I can't tell you what to do about any positive results (I'm not a doctor). I can share some things for your doctor and you to research further.

What do the test results look like?

Here are my exact test results from taking this test:

My parasite + candida test results: candida dividing (possible indication of candida overgrowth), epithelial squamous cells (likely indicates something assaulting the lining of my colon), starch granules (likely indicates poor digestion of starches), mucus (likely indicates inflammation of some part of my GI tract)

My bacterial culture test results: I tested positive for a heavy infection of klebsiella sp. The max score is a 4, so a +3 is almost the heaviest infection that I could test positive for. I didn't highlight the e coli infection because nearly everyone tests positive for it, and helpful e coli strains are commonly found in our gut (some strains produce vitamin K or B12). Candida overgrowth did not show up on the swab, so odds are good that I do not actually have a pathogenic version of candida.

Will you send me a copy of the test results?

Yes! We email test results when they are ready. We can also email the test results to your doctor.

Do you need a doctor's permission to order this test?

No - you can order this test on your own. But we always encourage people to work with their doctor to make sure treatment for any positive tests is handled correctly.

Can you help me find a doctor who can treat parasites?

Yes, we will try and help you find a doctor locally. We aren't always successful, but there are also tele-health options as well. And if you can travel to other states, we can easily recommend some great doctors.
