CDSA Level 3 expands on the CDSA Level 2 with the addition of Sensitivity Testing. This means that whenever imbalanced colonizing bacteria or mycoses (yeasts) are detected, they are tested against a panel of natural anti-microbial and prescription anti-fungal agents. Sensitivity Testing identifies the most effective anti-microbial/anti-fungal to use, which allows for a more accurate and cost effective treatment for the patient.
This test includes all the information of a Level 2 CDSA as well as Sensitivity Testing to assess what agents will kill pathogenic overgrowths in the gut. This test is particularly indicated if Bowel Overgrowth is suspected and an overview of gut health is needed.
