COMPREHENSIVE METABOLIC & NUTRITION PROFILE

The Organix Comprehensive Profile provides a view into the body’s cellular metabolic processes and the efficiency of metabolic function. Identifying metabolic blocks that can be treated nutritionally allows individual tailoring of interventions that maximize patient responses and lead to improved patient outcomes. All that is required to do the test is an overnight urine sample.

WHAT ARE ORGANIC ACIDS?

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 analytes are markers of intestinal bacterial or yeast overgrowth. The Organix Profile provides important information in the areas of:

  • Vitamin and mineral insufficiencies
  • Amino acid insufficiencies like carnitine and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC)
  • Oxidative damage and antioxidant sufficiency markers
  • Indicators to assess detoxification sufficiency
  • The best functional markers of B-complex deficiency
  • Neurotransmitter metabolites to assess central nervous system (CNS) function
  • Mitochondrial energy production assessment via citric acid cycle components
  • Methylation sufficiency status
  • Lipoic acid and CoQ10 sufficiency markers
  • Specific dysbiosis markers for bacterial and yeast overgrowth that can cause digestive distress and malabsorption

WHO SHOULD DO THIS TEST?

Your naturopathic physician can help determine if this test is appropriate for you. It can provide valuable insight into the cause and appropriate treatment for a number of chronic conditions, including:

  • Cancer
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Inflammatory conditions (chronic joint pain)
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Weight gain and/or weight loss resistance
  • Chronic skin conditions
  • Digestive disturbances (gas, bloating, reflux, constipation or diarrhea)
  • Sleep abnormalities
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Multiple chemical sensitivity
