What Does the Organic Acids Test Tell Us

It only requires a urine sample so it is easy to do, and it’s easy for children to do too. The sample is taken in the privacy of your home and then express posted back to the lab for analysis.

  • Energy Production

It measures the function of the Citric Acid cycle, which is how your body makes energy! Each step of this process requires certain vitamins and nutrients and by identifying which aspects of the cycle are not working optimally we know what nutrients are needed. If you have fatigue issues this maybe the key to identifying why. This part of the test is assessing your mitochondrial function

  • Methylation

Methylation is something that is becoming a big thing in health and wellness, many people are now taking advantage of 23andme to get their genes tested and find out how their genes affect their health. One important gene is MTHFR which affects folate metabolism, this test measures how well your cells are using folate and vitamin B12 which is another important component of methylation. Blood tests show how much folate and B12 is in the blood but your cells may not be able to use it so the Organic Acid test is more accurate at identifying deficiencies.

  • Oxidative Stress

Oxidative stress is one of the driving factors behind inflammation and we can measure glutathione recycling and the body’s ability to produce Co-enzyme Q10.

  • Fat Metabolism

The Organic Acid test measure fat metabolism, if you are having trouble losing weight this maybe an issue for you…. of if you have adopted a high fat diet but still feeling tired, this may mean that you are lacking key nutrients like carnitine to help turn fat into energy.

  • Carbohydrate Metabolism

Carbohydrate metabolism is another important aspect and this section of the test can be helpful if you are having energy issues, poor blood sugar control or your an athlete wanting to optimize performance.

  • Bacterial Infections and Candida

Bacterial Infections and Candida are also causes of inflammation and one of the driving forces behind digestive problems but also skin issues, fatigue, anxiety and many other health issues

  • Neurotransmitters

The Organic Acid test measures the metabolites of the neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin and adrenaline, this can help to identify the cause behind health issues like anxiety, depression and insomnia.

Customer Testimonials

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Planet Naturopath to family or friends, or anyone wanting to improve or optimise their health.  Michael’s genuinely caring, empathetic and supportive approach, his wealth of knowledge and his follow up are definite stand outs. The tests and services that Planet Naturopath provides are far more comprehensive than other practitioners and I’ve certainly felt that all tests and supplements have only ever been recommended on an ‘as needed’ basis, not over prescribed as can sometimes be the case elsewhere.


Working with Michael has been one of the best decisions I have made. His extensive knowledge and passion to help others is evident in each consult and getting your health to an optimal level is priority. I cannot thank him enough for the results I have seen to date.

Hi, my name is Michael Smith, ND BHSC and Head Practitioner at Planet Naturopath.

While I don’t know the exact reason you’re interested in testing the Organic Acids Test (OAT), I do know you’re searching for answers.

Whether that means looking for natural solutions to chronic health problems, finding out the cause of your fatigue, eliminating your digestive symptoms, or just wanting to optimize your health.

If you want to find those answers, I can tell you the best way to start… is with testing.

But not just any old test. Doctors only offer basic pathology tests, and often these tests come back showing that “everything is fine”, yet you feel far from feeling great.

Our OAT test, on the other hand, looks at a wider range of health markers, essentially assessing your metabolism, energy production, nutrient deficiencies, and gut health.

But what makes the OAT Test from Planet Naturopath invaluable, is what happens after you get your results. With our 60 minute in-depth one on one consultation, I’ll explain what your results actually mean to you, your health, and your body.

This is the fun part for me, because as Head Practitioner I enjoy doing all the consultations with our clients. My passion is helping people find natural solutions to optimize their health.

I’ll give you the complete details how the consultations work and how they can benefit you, but let’s start with:

Let me analyze your results, give you a breakdown of what your ranges mean - whether they’re elevated, normal, or low. And answer any questions you might have - plus give you options and recommendations on how you can optimize your heart health.

At Planet Naturopath, we want you to feel safe, confident, and secure when you purchase any of our tests, knowing that you’re protected by our:

100% Money Back Guarantee

If you’re not satisfied with the service we provide at Planet Naturopath – let us know within 30 days and you’ll receive a full refund. No questions asked.

Now obviously, we can’t guarantee that your results will be good - that’s kinda the whole reason you’re here right? To see where you’re at and what natural solutions are available to improve your health…

But we will guarantee you’ll get the best service and most professional and personalized advice available to help optimize your health with natural solutions.

We understand how frustrating it can be when you don’t feel right - but yet you’re told by a doctor there’s nothing wrong.

A Planet Naturopath we believe your health is the key to a long and happy life. And want to be there to help when you don’t get the answers you want through conventional medicine.

Yours in good health.

Michael Smith

Head Pract. Planet Naturopath.
