Hormonal changes can have a dramatic impact on our physical and emotional health. By understanding the hormonal pattern within the body through these tests, it is possible to individualise treatment to establish an optimal hormonal balance.
Female Hormone Profile is a saliva assay that analyses levels of progesterone, testosterone and ß-estradiol over 28 days. Because these hormones shape the course of a woman's menstruation cycle, imbalances can produce disruptions in mood, sleep patterns, appetite, sexual drive and PMS symptoms. This test provides clinical direction for successful treatment of women with menstrual irregularities, difficulties with ovulation, endometriosis, infertility, pre-menstrual syndrome, poor libido, menopause, osteoporosis, and other hormone related disorders. This profile also serves as an invaluable tool for monitoring the effectiveness of therapy and safeguarding against excessive hormone levels caused by unmonitored hormone replacement therapy. Menopause Profile examines three salivary samples over a 5-day period to determine levels of ß-estradiol, estriol, estrone, progesterone, and testosterone for women who are menopausal.
Male Hormone Profile analyses four saliva samples over a 24-hour period for levels of testosterone. The Adrenocortex Stress Profile evaluates bioactive levels of the body's important stress hormones, cortisol and DHEA. This profile serves as a critical tool for uncovering biochemical imbalances that can underlie anxiety, chronic fatigue, obesity, diabetes and a host of other clinical conditions. It's also a crucial tool for monitoring DHEA and/or cortisone therapy.
