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. Patients and physicians report that treating yeast and bacterial abnormalities reduces fatigue, increases alertness and energy, improves sleep, normalizes bowel function, and reduces hyperactivity and abdominal pain.
The OAT Assists in Evaluating:
■Krebs Cycle Abnormalities
■Yeast and Clostridia Overgrowth
■Fatty Acid Metabolism
Who should do this test?
We use this test to help with many degenerative conditions that come in or office. Candida (yeast) is one of the major health issues that many people are having these days and this test will show the levels and how severe your condition is.
Anyone who has been having kidney stones, this is important to know. This usually means your calcium oxalates are too high and the culprit for this condition is usually yeast! General stiffness in your body is not just because you are getting older and not exercising. Lab tests reveals that high levels of candida overgrowth can cause calcium to simply go to the wrong places and settle in your soft tissues. Once in reducing your candida issue you will find that stiffness in the body and other health issues seems to greatly reduce.
After you receive your results a nutritional protocol will be advised to deal with your overgrowth and other issues that will be found. We advise Dr Price’s protocols to deal with these issues and more.
The Organic Acids Test (OAT) offers a comprehensive metabolic snapshot of a patient’s overall health with 76 markers. It provides an accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria. Abnormally high levels of these microorganisms can cause or worsen behavior disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, fatigue and immune function.
Many people with chronic illnesses and neurological disorders often excrete several abnormal organic acids in their urine. The cause of these high levels could include oral antibiotic use, high sugar diets, immune deficiencies, acquired infections, as well as genetic factors.
Our Organic Acids Test also includes markers for vitamin and mineral levels, oxidative stress, neurotransmitter levels, and is the only OAT to include markers for oxalates, which are highly correlated with many chronic illnesses.
If abnormalities are detected using the OAT, treatments can include supplements, such as vitamins and antioxidants, or dietary modification. Upon treatment, patients and practitioners have reported significant improvement such as decreased fatigue, regular bowel function, increased energy and alertness, increased concentration, improved verbal skills, less hyperactivity, and decreased abdominal pain.
The OAT is strongly recommended as the initial screening test for chronic conditions, especially when with gut issues.
