The Organic Acid Test, commonly called the OAT test for short is one of the best ways to get a detailed analysis of many aspects of your health.
If you have struggled with health issues yet all of your blood tests come back “normal” then the OAT test is a good way to reveal what the underlying cause is.
If you want to optimize your health then the OAT test can help to reveal problems with metabolism, nutrient deficiencies, gut health, neurotransmitters and much more.
The OAT test is also a great test for kids and can identify underlying causes that contribute to ADHD, autism, sensory processing issues, behavior and learning problems.

Chronic fatigue is usually diagnosed after you have had fatigue for six months without any identifiable causes like insomnia, low iron, B12 deficiency or other identifiable cause. So if all your tests come back “normal” you are given a diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or CFS, but in my experience, there is always a cause of CFS.
This is where the Organic Acids Test is invaluable because it can identify imbalances that do not get picked up in the standard blood tests.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is often caused by problems with mitochondria function (your cell’s batteries) and is how your body produces ATP (energy), so if there are problems with the mitochondrial function you are going to have fatigue.
The OAT test can identify the cause and give us clues on how to best treat CFS.
The OAT test is great for children because it only requires a urine sample which can be done at home, this is less stressful for kids compared to doing blood tests (which are often normal)
There are a number of different causes and reasons behind autism, ADHD and sensory processing problems and this can include genetics, diet, and other environmental triggers.
The Organic Acid test can help to identify if bacteria and yeast infections are causing problems with the neurotransmitters, this is a common cause of all neurological issues, and this is especially true for children.
Identifying the cause is the first step to making improvements to your child’s health, this takes the guesswork out of diets, supplements and the best way to move forward and make progress with their health.
If your lacking energy, struggling with your weight, digestive problems, mood disorders or other chronic health issues the OAT test can help identify the underlying cause.
If your an athlete or biohacker looking to optimize your performance the Organic Acid test can help to identify missing vitamins and nutrients to help improve your performance
