I haven't made the jump yet, but I just wanted you to know that you're not the only one contemplating this... I too have heard rumors from alternative docs that there is some kind of bacterial balance-type test.
Do you know what the specific test you're after is called? The price is much better than others I've heard of... I was quoted somewhere around $1500 here in Colorado for a bacterial and full blood analysis but wasn't given a price for just one or the other.
It certainly seems like a reasonable route... good luck, and keep us posted!
