This is one of the most valuable, cost-effective tests. This is a simple urine test that looks at complex biomarkers from various metabolic pathways. These biomarkers give an overview of several major systems in the body and an analysis of nutritional deficiencies in the body. If I could only run one lab test this is the one I would use.
The Organic Acids Test (OAT) provides an accurate metabolic snapshot of what is going on in the body. Besides offering the most complete and accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria it also provides information on important neurotransmitters, nutritional markers, glutathione status, oxalate metabolism, and much more. The test includes 76 urinary metabolite markers that can be very useful for discovering underlying causes of chronic illness.
Addressing yeast and bacterial abnormalities has been shown to reduce fatigue, increase alertness and energy, improve sleep, normalize bowel function, and reduce hyperactivity and abdominal pain.
We are alive because of complex biological reactions that occur in our body. These reactions require nutrients from food, not processed food, but whole food. If we aren’t eating the right food, or if we are, we may not be absorbing these nutrients because our digestive system is compromised then these biological pathways will be affected and over time we will begin to see symptoms appear. Where and how you break is unique to you but the underlying causes of chronic illness are the same. Body systems are not functioning optimally due to nutrient deficiencies, toxicity, and inflammation. This test provides actionable results to help us address your symptoms.
