New Lab Test: Organic Acids

As a doctor, I know staying up to date with the latest advances in medicine is critical to helping my patients. The more precise we can be in our diagnosis, the more targeted we can be in our therapies - which means faster results, and better monitoring.

Last week at a medical conference I was learning to utilize new lab tests, and therapies to help patients like you. I'm excited to announce we'll be offering the Organic Acids Test (OAT) - it's cutting edge, and allows us to peek at what's happening inside our body in a whole new way. Here's a little info on what the test can do.

What Information Does the OAT Give?

  • Yeast (Candida) and Bacteria

  • Vitamins and Antioxidants

  • Fatty Acid Metabolism

  • Neurotransmitters
