Organic Acids: A Picture of Cellular Health

Are you feeling a change in your energy levels? Do you find yourself craving sugar or caffeine as an afternoon pick me up? Are you gaining weight or unable to lose weight, despite proper diet and exercise? Are you experiencing anxiety or depression? Have you lost your mojo?

The fact is, there can be numerous reasons for all these complaints. We now offer a great test for screening a variety of complaints, called Organic Acid Testing. It involves collecting a urine sample and examining it for elevated compounds of cellular metabolism. Organic acids are involved in energy production as well as cellular maintenance and repair. This test allows us to see how well your body is functioning at a cellular level. This test identifies vitamin/mineral deficiencies, inhibited metabolism, energy production, impaired enzyme function, gut bacterial overgrowth and exposure to environmental toxins.

Organic acid testing can be great tool to identify the underlying cause of chronic disease and other health related conditions, such as:

  • Weight Gain
  • Poor Digestion
  • Leaky Gut
  • Bloating
  • Food Allergies
  • Autism
  • ADHD
  • Stress
  • Mental Disorders
  • Environmental Toxin Exposure
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Weakness
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Cold Hands/Feet
  • Low Energy

Identifying your personal metabolic roadblocks (because it is your urine, right?) allows us to tailor nutrient interventions, maximize effectiveness and efficiently restore your health.

“I received acupuncture from Amy for chronic headaches, which were accompanied by nausea. Over the past two years, I would wake with severe headaches that would occur 2-3x week. This made it difficult for me to attend school, concentrate on homework and keep up with classes. I felt relief from my headaches immediately after beginning acupuncture and am now 100% better.”

"Amy is amazing. She takes ample time to talk about my health needs and has a wealth of knowledge and experience to treat me. Her genuine care for the patient and her personable skills are what keep me coming back. I had suffered from migraines for many years, but I no longer have them!"
“I went to see Amy for PMS and low mood. She was empathetic, caring and patient in helping me to find the protocol that worked best for me. With the right supplements and acupuncture, my symptoms improved dramatically in only a few months of treatment. Amy is intelligent, well-informed, patient and caring. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a natural and holistic treatment option.”

“I wanted to share our good news. Our son was born and he’s a healthy and happy little guy. I wanted to say thank you for all of your support through the IVF process. I really feel like acupuncture helped me significantly. I felt more relaxed and open after acupuncture than during any of my previous rounds of infertility treatments. I am so appreciative of your expertise and care. Thanks again.”
