The Organic Acids Lab Test measures 76 urinary metabolic markers that are highly useful in discovering the underlying causes of chronic illness.
It is a pioneering test that very few people have ever considered running to understand their function. There’s an enormous potential of information here to help understand so much more about how different systems and functions are performing in the body.
On one hand, it’s a specialist test, that only a select few Laboratories have researched into to provide the best marker profiles for practitioners and patients.
Yet – on the other – The Organic Acids Lab Test is really just insight into some fundamental functions of the body, that could be considered as almost basic and good practice to investigate!
For this reason this is one of the most frequently run Functional Lab Tests at the Functional Health Clinic.
There are many who would benefit from this insight. The Functional Approach is always concerned with assessing ‘function’ and ascertaining whether the optimal blueprint for it is being expressed in the body. Hence, whenever we identify anything that is sub-optimal, imbalanced and/or dysfunctional – it is key to understand it and consider an intervention. The goal is therefore always to enhance the function.
This is of course, quite broad!
