The Organix® Comprehensive Profile is a nutritional test providing insights into organic acids and a view into the body’s cellular metabolic processes. Identifying metabolic blocks that can be treated nutritionally allows individual tailoring of interventions that maximize patient responses and lead to improved patient outcomes.
By correcting problems shown in your Organix test results, we improve and optimize your body’s ability to heal and stay healthy.
To be healthy your body must process food through a complex metabolic system that produces energy and restores healthy tissues such as skin and muscle. If you have specific requirements for any of the few dozen essential nutrients or if you are simply failing to eat and assimilate them, then those healing processes can fail. A further reason for special requirement is your exposure to toxic chemicals.
Metabolism is the process in which your body converts the food you eat into energy and new structures. The study of human metabolism has revealed how vitamins and minerals are used to perform those hundreds of necessary chemical reactions. This is a test that shows your doctor or Functional Medicine practitioner weaknesses in your metabolism. Many of the weaknesses can be overcome by increasing your intake of a vitamin or other essential nutrient. Some of the measurements show nerve or detoxification functions. The final set of compounds shows disturbances in the balance of bacteria that may grow from food residues in your digestive system.
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 inhibition or 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.
The data that we receive will help us to create a personalized care plan for you to regain health, vitality and optimize your metabolism.
How do we collect these important data?
The Organix Comprehensive nutritional test profile provides vital information from a single urine specimen.
This organic acids nutritional test is valuable for determining:
• Functional vitamin and mineral status
• Amino acid insufficiencies like carnitine and NAC
• Oxidative damage and antioxidant need
• Phase I & Phase II liver detoxification capacity
• Functional B-complex vitamin need
• Neurotransmitter metabolites and imbalances
• Mitochondrial energy production
• Methylation sufficiency
• Lipoic acid and CoQ10 status (important for cardiovasculair health)
• Markers for bacterial and yeast overgrowth (SIBO and SIFO)
Full review of the patient’s biochemical status and metabolic pathway flow can help identify areas of greatest concern. We will create a personalized care plan and retest after a certain time to make sure we have reached optimal results.
• Chemical Sensitivities
• Chronic fatigue
• High cholesterol
• Sleep abnormalities
• Weight issues
