Case 2: Leaky Gut, Anxiety, (DBH)
GREAT PLAINS LABORATORY:
organic acid analysis, identifications effects of inflammatory microbiome (intestinal bacterial imbalance) and neurotransmitter chemistry that effect inflammation.
A 68-year-old retired female who complains of irregular
heartbeats, insomnia and anxiety. This organic acid test (OAT) reflects the levels of non-human, bacterial, yeast and fungal proteins that leaked from her gut into the venous drainage of her colon and are subsequently excreted by her kidneys. This study establishes her “leaky gut” condition and identifies a dysbiosis of her microbiome (the genetic material of all the microbes, bacteria,fungi, protozoa and viruses that live on and inside the human body). The metabolic products from certain species of Clostridia interfere with her normal enzyme (DBH) which results in a decrease of her normal dopamine levels. This can lead to diffuse anxiety. This type of testing is very helpful to identify and correctly treat root causes of behavioral disorders which are not identified by psychiatric techniques.
