How Patients Can Benefit from the OMX Metabolomics Test

Understanding an individual’s metabolome allows clinicians to establish a larger picture…

Combined with their medical history and lifestyle, you can provide support from the bottom up. Ideally, practitioners will use OMX to establish a baseline metabolic signature for healthy patients. The baseline could be used for future comparison if symptoms, disease, or illness occurs.

When Should You Use OMX With Your Patient?

  • Chronic health issues, despite all the standard
    blood tests come back “normal”
  • Lack of energy, fatigue, and lethargy
  • Mood disorders, depression, anxiety, ADHD,
    brain fog, and focus disturbances
  • Digestive complaints
  • Weight loss resistance
  • Athletes, to determine overtraining,
    poor exercises recovery and GI distress.
  • Post-viral infections
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Evaluating the level of catabolism
    (post-chemo, progressive diabetes, MS)
  • ADD/ADHD and Autism
  • Unexplained health concerns
    where other tests are not detecting anything

OMX Provides Insights Into the Following Areas of Health:

  • Metabolic and macronutrient processing
  • Mitochondrial dysfunction
  • Nutritional and vitamin status
  • Level and flow of amino acid
  • Inflammation
  • Ketosis or poor carbohydrate metabolism
  • Detoxification
    (impaired fatty acid metabolism + more)
  • Mood issues (Neurotransmitter metabolism)
  • Oxidative stress
  • Gut concerns (dysbiosis) – complements very
    well prior to a GI-MAP to assess overall health
  • Overall well-being
