All About Stool Testing

I’m extremely excited to present to you today’s episode, where I chat to Dr. Jason Hawrelak on the ins and outs of stool testing.

This episode will not only benefit the public, but also practitioners who would like to know the latest developments of stool testing, and what measurable markers are required that will give accurate results for treatment.

Jason and I discuss what tests are covered by the Australian Medicare system, and how advances in technology has improved the accuracy of stool testing results.
