How to Find Out How YourDetox Systems Are Detoxing!


"Detox" is a hot topic word right now. If you have been told you need to detox, you might be overwhelmed trying to determine where to start.

We are all detoxing every day, all day long, but the truth is, for a lot of us, our bodies are nutrient deprived and in a state of oxidative stress and our detox systems aren't doing their job. Detoxification will not be the same for everyone, because of bio-individuality, or everyone's unique makeup.

There are no ‘one-size-fits-all’ protocols that will work for everyone and that's why testing is so important!

How Detoxification Works
SO many organs are working to detox metals, chemicals, pesticides, viruses, bacteria, mold, mycotoxins, parasites and the natural cellular waste our body makes.

The skin, liver, gastrointestinal system, kidneys, brain, gallbladder, and every single cell work hard to keep you from becoming overburdened but so many things get in the way!

Genetic mutations turned on by toxins and infections, bacteria, candida, nutrient deficiencies, digestive distress, leaky gut, mental and emotional stress, all prevent natural detox from occurring, leaving your body weak and vulnerable.

The Organic Acids Test measures many metabolites that indicate issues with these natural detox pathways.

It is the ideal test to give you insight into where you need help with your detox pathways.

Organic Acid Testing
The Organic Acids Test is the perfect test to understand how your body is processing various factors involved in detox. 

This test provides a real-time snapshot of detox systems in your body by looking at breakdown products, or metabolites, in your urine that represents different metabolic processes. These are called organic acids, which is where the test name is derived.

The results show where you may be falling short and how to correct your detox pathways to function optimally!

One example of how the test can be beneficial is how yeast and bacterial overgrowth will block enzymes that are needed to metabolize neurotransmitters or our chemical messengers for all processes of the body.

The best part is, the test has specific indicators of common issues which prevent proper detox, including:

  • Intestinal yeast and bacteria overgrowth

  • Kreb Cycle dysfunction

  • Glutathione levels

  • Nutritional markers

  • Neurotransmitter Metabolism

  • Glutathione Deficiency (Master Antioxidant)

  • Amino Acid Deficiency


Who Needs the Organic Acids Test?
The Organic Acid Test is ideal for a variety of conditions and individuals whom:

  • Struggle with neurological or mood issues

  • Suffer from chronic digestive issues

  • Have been exposed to pesticides, metals, or other toxins 

  • Want to know how to support their detox pathways

  • Have chronic inflammation

  • Have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder

  • Have been diagnosed with autism

  • Have been or are currently exposed to mold or suffering from mycotoxin illness.

This test pairs perfectly with the mold and mycotoxin panel to find out which species of mold or mycotoxins are present in your body and in what quantity.

Add on a non-metal chemical test, which measures different toxic burdens in the body for a more complete picture of your total body burden.

Yeast and Bacteria Makers
The microbes in our guts play an integral role in our health. They also impact our detox pathways and give insight into what toxic exposure we may be dealing with.

The Organic Acids Test looks at nine different yeast metabolites, as well as nine different bacterial metabolites, including markers for toxic types of Clostridia.

These are two important aspects of detoxification because imbalances in either of these can create toxic elements that affect other body systems.

Clostridia 
Some types of the bacteria Clostridia produce toxins which then disrupt neurotransmitter processing, such as dopamine and serotonin. For example, the marker HPHPA on the Organic Acid Test indicates that yeast overgrowth is negatively affecting the dopamine pathway. (1)

A disruption of neurotransmitter processing can lead to changes in mood, energy, concentration, and behaviors.

Also, some of these toxins can enter the brain directly by crossing the blood-brain barrier. Once inside the brain, they can cause several neurological effects, such as damage the neurons, change how they communicate, and even cause cells to die. (2)

Although stool tests may measure clostridia, they do not differentiate between the harmful types that produce these toxins and types that do not. This is why the Organic Acids Test is superior in looking for Clostridia, which may be producing toxins which are harming your body. 

Yeast and Candida 
Yeast is a natural part of our gut flora. However, an overgrowth can lead to various health issues. Yeast overgrowth can cause a surge in yeast breakdown products, such as tartaric acid which is measured on the Organic Acids Test. 

Studies show that tartaric acid is toxic to the brain and associated with mental health disorders, including depression and autism, as well as fibromyalgia. 

Also, very high levels of yeast markers on the Organic Acids Test may indicate mold exposure. Adding on a mycotoxin test which tests for mold is ideal in these situations.

If your Organic Acids Tests indicates that you have harmful bacteria or yeast overgrowth in your gut, eliminating them and rebalancing your gut flora is a critical step in preventing toxins that are coming from your own body.

Glutathione 
Glutathione is our master antioxidant and having a sufficient amount in your body is key to detoxing.

It’s job it to quench oxidative stress in the body which comes from normal metabolic processes, as well from break down products during detoxification. As our bodies break down chemicals, pollutants, and other toxins we are exposed to, glutathione helps to protect cells against damage. (5)

Without enough glutathione, our cells are vulnerable to damage from the toxic metabolites. In this case, your detox protocol can be doing more harm than good!

This is essential information to know before beginning any detoxification. If your glutathione levels are low, detoxing might not be best for you until you work on increasing this important antioxidant! (6)

There are very few tests which assess your glutathione levels. This is why we love using the Organic Acids Test to help make detox decisions.

The Krebs Cycle
The Krebs cycle is a process that occurs in the mitochondria (the energy powerhouse) of cells. It is how cells create and transform energy which then powers them to do their job. Therefore, for cells to function correctly, healthy mitochondria is a necessity.

Our mitochondria create our energy currency - ATP. ATP powers almost every process in the body you can think of, including the steps needed for detox. The Organic Acids Test evaluates mitochondria function by looking at eight different markers of the Krebs cycle. 

Mitochondria are susceptible to chemicals and toxins. Toxic exposures, such as heavy metals or pesticides, can block some of the Kreb Cycle steps. On the flip side, a well-functioning mitochondria is essential to detoxifying toxic compounds.  

In addition, when mitochondria create ATP, they produce many by-products that can damage the cells if they are not properly handled; this is known as oxidative stress. (7)

As previously mentioned, glutathione is responsible for dealing the oxidative stress, so as you can see, these two go hand in hand. This is another reason why we love the Organic Acids Test as it looks at the whole picture and helps tremendously with detox decisions.

Nutrient Markers
Another great aspect of the Organic Acids Test is nutrient markers. Nutrients and vitamins are needed for detoxification as they are cofactors for many of the steps involved in breaking down and removing toxic wastes from the body.

For example, our P450 enzymes which are found all over the body and are the highest in the liver, are the enzymes that are needed for part one of our two-part detoxification system. These enzymes require B vitamins like B6 and B12 to do their job. (8)

The Organic Acids Test can assess your levels of a number of vitamins, in real-time. It looks at several nutrients, including B2, B6, B12, Vitamin C, CoQ10, and N-acetylcysteine. 

As previously mentioned, Co10 is a crucial nutrient for the Krebs Cycle, and N-acetylcysteine is a precursor to glutathione production. These nutrients markers tie into other aspects of the test to give insight into how areas relate to one another. 

Ensuring you have enough nutrients onboard is vital before engaging in any detox program as they are needed in the detox pathways.

Final Thoughts on the Organic Acids Test
Before starting any form of detox protocol, it is important to know if there are any deficits in your body’s metabolic pathways. The Organic Acids Test provides detailed insight into imbalances in gut flora, weaknesses in the Krebs Cycle, or low levels of glutathione. 

These are critical factors to know when making detox decisions, and The Organic Acids Test gives you an idea of where you should start for an effective and safe detox.
