SIBO small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) is a pretty tricky thing to find.
You can’t find it on a stool test.
But you CAN find it using a simple home urine test called “organic acids”.
And unlike a stool test, an organic acids test can tell you about your energy production, B vitamin levels, antioxidants, liver function and brain chemistry.
Watch this video to learn how an organic acids test can help you.
Organic acids in action
This test result shows how one of my clients had high levels of marker 36, 38 and 43, as well as borderline high levels of 37, 42, and 46.
There’s no question she has major bacterial imbalances in her gut from this result, despite having a fairly clear stool test result.
Other important findings
With organic acids, you get more information about how your metabolism is working, including:
All in all, there are 46 different markers in the test, all providing information on why you might be struggling with ongoing symptoms.
When I did an organic acids test in 2010, I found I had two really important nutrient deficiencies – vitamin B6 and carnitine.
When I took B6 and carnitine supplements, I noted a big bump in energy and mood.
Vitamin B6 is massively important for detoxification and brain function – it’s needed to make your feel good transmitters dopamine and serotonin.
Carnitine is needed for you to take fat and burn it to make energy.
If you can’t do this properly, you probably won’t feel energised.

Only 3 of my organic acids test markers were out of balance, but it made a huge difference to learn what those imbalances were.
Most people have at least half a dozen imbalances, and some of them are life-changing.
You never know what an organic acids test is going to show up.
It could give you info that uncovers some risk factors for future problems as well as showing why you don’t feel well now.
