You will receive these directions again after purchase to refer back to for when you take your test. The OAT Test kit comes with directions to follow as well.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE OAT TEST:
Avoid the list of foods on the form for 48 hours prior to testing: avocado, kiwi, tomato, banana, pineapple, plantain, grapes/raisins, plums/prunes and juices from those foods; walnuts, pecans and ketchup, jello, vanilla extract (in packaged goods, ice cream), aged and processed cheeses, coffee, tea (caffeine) and alcohol.
Don't let these are random items that can impact test results stop you from cracking your Unique Food Code™ one bit. A ton of people like you made their health a priority and if you are reading this now, you're looking for answers to solve your health riddle. Besides, if giving up coffee and alcohol is your hard no, your adrenals and liver likely need the 2-day break!
Since avoiding coffee, tea, and caffeine can be challenging it's suggested to avoid food/drink items on the weekend (no coffee or tea or alcohol). If weekends are not good choose 2 days to avoid these foods and then do the test first thing in the morning before any food or drinks. Just make sure to follow the instructions on the Urine Collection handout and you'll be good to go!
Please note: if you sample is not properly dried according to directions and your sample arrives molded, you may be billed for additional shipping charges to send out another kit.
Once your results are analyzed I’ll receive the test results to discuss with the doctor at the lab and we can schedule a virtual appointment to review and make changes in your diet, supplements, and lifestyle or whatever feels supportive based on your goals.
