The Microbial Organic Acids Test (MOAT) offers a comprehensive snapshot of a patient’s yeast, fungal, and microbial situation. It provides an accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria. Abnormally high levels of these microorganisms can cause or worsen behavior disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, fatigue, and immune function. Many people with chronic illnesses and neurological disorders often excrete several abnormal organic acids in their urine. The cause of these high levels could include oral antibiotic use, high sugar diets, immune deficiencies, acquired infections, as well as genetic factors.
If abnormalities are detected using the MOAT, treatments can include supplements, such as antimicrobial/antifungal herbal remedies, and/or dietary modification. Upon treatment, patients and practitioners have reported significant improvement such as decreased fatigue, regular bowel function, increased energy and alertness, increased concentration, improved verbal skills, less hyperactivity, and decreased abdominal pain.
We recommend this test if you suspect you have been exposed to mold or mold spores at any point in your life. Mycotoxins are naturally occurring toxins produced by certain molds (fungi), can be found in the environment and food. When you are exposed to mycotoxins you can get infected.
Mycotoxins can cause a variety of adverse health effects and pose a serious health threat. Some mycotoxins are carcinogenic and neurotoxic
