Hormone testing is a very useful tool for determining the health of the endocrine system and your hormonal health. We have much experience in using saliva profiles and these are believed to be the most accurate form of measuring hormones. We arrange for the testing when you are in the clinic and discuss the results together.
What is hormone testing used for?
Hormones are the chemical messengers in the body that travel the bloodstream to the organs and tissues. They affect many of the body’s processes over time. Hormones are produced by the endocrine glands including the pituitary gland, thyroid, thymus, adrenal glands, and the pancreas. It only requires a small amount of change to them to cause significant changes throughout the body. If hormone imbalance is left untreated it can result in serious medical conditions such as infertility, menopause symptoms, menstrual irregularities, PCOS, anxiety depression, mood swings, weight loss/gain, sleep disturbances and much more.
Therefore hormonal testing helps us discover underlying causes in order to find a holistic, natural solution for your wellbeing.
