Organic Acids Testing
Organic Acids Testing (OAT test) is a functional and applicable way to look into your bio-individual needs and give us a comprehensive, broad view into your health.
The OAT Test has 74 different markers covering energy production, vitamins, oxidative stress and antioxidants, detoxification, neurotransmitters, intestinal yeast and bacteria, oxalates and more. It is an ideal test to start with when you are looking to optimize health and work to prevent disease and get rid of health symptoms.
WHAT IT SHOWS US:
- Fat burning
- Carb burning
- Vitamin mineral deficiencies
- Amino acid insufficiencies
- Oxidative damage and antioxidant markers (glutathione, CoQ10, Lipoic acid)
- Detox sufficiency markers
- Neuro metabolites
- Energy production
- Methylation sufficiency status
- Specific dysbiosis markers for bacterial and yeast overgrowth
It is a simple urine test that is delivered straight to you and taken in the privacy of your own home. It is one of the most valuable and cost-effective tests you can perform as a functional approach to a "wellness check-up," to give us a detailed look at your overall health and help us identify the underlying causes of health symptoms or obstacles.
SYMPTOMS IT CAN HELP WITH (for children and adults):
- autoimmune disorders
- autism and ADHD
- weight gain
- blood sugar dysregulation
- anxiety and depression
- gastrointestinal issues
- eczema and dermatitis
- accelerated aging
- chemical sensitivities
- sleep abnormalities
- and to help optimize overall health
Organic Acids are natural chemical compounds that are excreted in our urine, they are a bi-product of our metabolism when molecules are built or broken down. The biomarkers come from various pathways in the body that can give us a view into metabolic function. Abnormal amounts of organic acids can help us assess a person's health.
After reviewing results, recommendations may include diet modifications, lifestyle changes, supplements, and possible further investigation of health issues through other functional lab tests. After following recommendations, many people have reported significant improvement in symptoms.
Functional tests are meant to help give us insight into a person's individual needs. We never "treat" test results but use them to give us direction into identifying underlying causes of symptoms and how we can best enhance an individuals health to feel their best and prevent disease.
