If you have any of these symptoms:
• Weight gain despite efforts to lose weight
• Tiredness after eating
• Brain fog
• Digestive issues including constipation / diarrhea / bloating / reflux
• Sleep disorders
• Chronic inflammation
• Joint pain
Then the Metabolic Markers Test may be suggested as the best place to start.
This specific laboratory-based functional medicine test is used to attain the crucial information required to develop an evidenced-informed, personalised wellness program when you book in for a subsequent nutrition consultation.
The Metabolic Markers approach uses a Urinary Organic Acids Test (OAT) as a baseline laboratory evaluation. This evaluation is recommended prior to anyone undertaking a more comprehensive health optimisation program as it provides a fantastic amount of information for us to work with.
Amazing advancements in research and technology now allow us to analyse a simple urine test and get a comprehensive overview of more than 70 important metabolic markers (biomarkers) produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, oxidative stress, neurotransmitter breakdown, and intestinal microbial activity.
Irregularities in these biomarkers can often signal underlying issues which can be due to:
• nutrient deficiencies,
• mitochondrial dysfunction,
• neurotransmitter metabolism issue(s),
• an inherited enzyme deficit,
• toxic build-up,
• bacterial or fungal dysbiosis,
• malabsorption issue, or
• drug effect
This approach is often considered by many professionals who work in the functional medicine and health optimisation space as the “best value per dollar you can invest in your health”.
Due to the profound impact that this test has on informing the short- and long-term protocols, it is the foundational piece of your health optimisation plan.
The goal here is to:
