The Organic Acids Test is an excellent way to measure whether your body is getting and using nutrients to drive optimal health. It warns us of potential problems your body has by measuring certain chemicals or organic acids as indicators. This alerts us to potential and/or current problems you may face.
These indicators or markers assess gastrointestinal health, neurotransmitter activity, and detoxification demands. With early warning and our guidance, the Organic Acids Test can assist you to make diet and lifestyle changes that both extend and enhance your quality of life. For example, it allows us to look at four important neurotransmitters that influence energy levels, response to stress, mood, sleep patterns and weight regulation.
The neurotransmitters epinephrine, norepenephrine and dopamine metabolites VMA and HVA allow us to evaluate closely the stress response as well as memory, movement, and mood. The organic acid marker for Serotonin is Kyneurate.
We can also measure the production of inflammatory markers and determine if it is an inflammatory cytokine and/or brain inflammation.
Along with the genetic testing from 23andme.com, we can determine through the Organic Acids Test if the gene variants have expressed themselves. We look closely at three factors: methylation, neurotransmitters, and oxidative stress or detoxification markers.
Our success rate has increased dramatically with conditions such as Anxiety, Insomnia, Restless Legs, Migraines, and Dementia, with the incorporation of genetic testing, organic acids, and neurofeedback.
This one test is so important that it has made the navigation of this very difficult maze a lot easier.
