Metabolic Testing and Organic Acids
To be healthy, your body must break down and process food in order to produce cellular energy. This energy is then used for many other metabolic pathways.
If you have unique genetic requirements, or your diet either lacks certain vital nutrients or your body can not assimilate them, your healing and energy levels can fail.
Improper healing and energy production can be caused by a processed, nutrient-deprived diet, genetic alterations, and your exposure to toxic environmental chemicals. Metabolism is the process by which your body converts the food you eat into energy.
Vitamins and minerals are responsible for running the multitude of chemical pathways that make up your metabolism. The Comprehensive Organic Acids Test is an in-depth test to uncover any weaknesses in your metabolism.
Through urine testing, the Comprehensive Organic Acids Test looks at:
- Your energy production;
- Carbohydrate and fat metabolism;
- Your ability to produce energy and modify specific genetic mechanisms through B-vitamin metabolism;
- How well you produce neurotransmitters;
- Oxidative (free-radical) damage and your ability to make antioxidants;
- Your ability to detoxify harmful environmental chemicals; and
- The balance of the bacteria that may grow from food residues in your digestive system.
Only 12 percent of American adults are metabolically healthy
percent of energy ingested is metabolizable energy
Are your symptoms due to faulty metabolic function?
Organic acids are metabolic intermediates that are produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, or intestinal microbial activity.
Marked accumulation of specific organic acids detected in urine often signals a metabolic block. The metabolic block may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up or drug effect. Several of the biomarkers are markers of intestinal bacterial or yeast overgrowth.
If any one of these pathways are faulty—which won’t be found in generic medical tests—chronic health issues develop and symptoms appear.
The Organix® Comprehensive nutritional test is ideal for patients who may suffer from:
- Weight issues
- Sleep abnormalities
- Chemical Sensitivities
Correct your nutrient imbalances
Dr. Z, with full knowledge of your health history and goals, can use this comprehensive report to provide you with an optimized nutritional program. The organic acids that are measured high in the range indicate low levels of the vitamins needed to correct that imbalance.
By correcting the imbalances shown on the test results, your energy, metabolism, and ability to heal and stay healthy will noticeably improve. This approach has been shown to lower your risk of obesity, heart disease, fatigue, and many other conditions.
When the main imbalances are corrected, you may be able to make simple dietary changes in order to maintain metabolic balance for your lifetime.
