Why Is An Organic Acid Test Important?
The intestine is a storehouse of yeast, microbes and bacteria and these assist with metabolic functions. However, when these are present in huge numbers, or when their numbers decline, there are various metabolic disturbances that are seen. The Organic Acids Test (OAT) comprises 70 markers and is done by testing a sample of urine. It gives a comprehensive analysis of the patient’s overall health.
Often you do not feel well and even though blood tests and reports come back normal, the feeling of unwellness persists. This may be due to the fact that your metabolism is affected. The OAT identifies what is wrong, and the naturopath then sets it right.
