In Episode 23 of Thyroid Answers Podcast, Dr. Eric Balcavage and Dr. Erica Riggleman discuss Organic Acid Testing with Dr. Elizma Lambert and how proper analysis can detect enzyme and nutrient deficiencies and a multitude of other factors which can help pinpoint a patient’s health challenges.
Elizma is a registered Naturopath and Homeopath who was born in South Africa where she started her studies in a Masters degree Homoepathy. In 2000 she immigrated to Australia where she obtained her Australian qualifications in Bachelor of Health Science (Hom) and Advanced Diploma (Nat).
Elizma understands the importance of looking at the body as a whole and treating everyone as the individual they are. Curiosity and a desire to understand biological processes and influences in the human body has fueled her passion for ‘connecting the dots’. She found that more and more people were getting increasingly frustrated by a healthcare system that provides ‘speciality care’ and no-one able or willing to explain how symptoms in different parts of their body were related, and how this translated to blood tests or other tests they had done.
As a result Elizma uses case history and tests (blood tests, OATs, CDSA, FMA, 23andme, SmartDNA, and more) looking at organic acids, urinary amino acids, neurotransmitters, hormones and genetic markers, just to name a few, to help people understand why they are experiencing the symptoms they have, and how to address it. She believes that most if not all ‘disease’ needs to be addressed by identifying and removing the triggers, correcting imbalances in the biochemistry and rebalancing the autonomic nervous system using dietary, nutritional or herbal interventions.
