I dont feel quite right but all my tests are normal?
Organic acid testing can tell you how smoothly that miraculous biochemical machine within you is running. At Core, we offer organic acid testing for clients when they can’t find a medical cause for their problem but remain feeling ‘not quite right’. Organic acid testing is also ordered for a broad range of diagnosed conditions where additional support is needed such as chronic fatigue syndrome, autism, autoimmune conditions, developmental delays and learning difficulties, post cancer treatment, obesity and in the care of elite athletes. From a urine sample 46 organic acids are measured each of which is a metabolite of a normal biochemical processes in the human body. When specific organic acids are very high or very low in your urine we gain an understanding of your unique nutritional biochemical needs and can make recommendations that are specific to your requirements.
What biochemical processes are actually measured?
• Functional vitamin and mineral status (how our minerals and vitamins are actually working for us)
• Amino acid insufficiencies (important building blocks of proteins for all body processes)
• Oxidative damage and antioxidant need
• Phase I & Phase II detoxification capacity (can your body detoxify efficiently)
• Functional B-complex vitamin need (critical for energy and nervous system health)
• Neurotransmitter metabolites (the production of brain hormones that keep us happy and energised)
• Mitochondrial energy production (the power houses in our cells that make energy)
• Methylation sufficiency (important for normal cell communications and processes)
• Lipoic acid and CoQ10 status (very important for energy and cardiovascular health)
• Markers for bacterial and yeast overgrowth ( tells us whether we may be feeling awful because we have an overgrowth of bacteria in our small intestine)
