Hormone levels shift and change throughout your life. When something disrupts your hormone balance, such as stress, poor eating habits, chemical pollutants, becoming a mother, or entering menopause, you can suffer with physical and emotional symptoms. Regaining your health will depend on being able to uncover what is really going on with your hormones. Salivary hormone testing is a simple way to identify these imbalances.
Many naturopath's find saliva hormone testing more accurate than blood testing because it measures the active hormones that your body is actually using. Blood tests however measure both active and inactive (unusable) hormone levels.
If you are wondering whether certain symptoms you are experiencing may be due to a hormone imbalance, salivary hormone testing is a quick, easy, and accurate way to find out. Your naturopath is able to use the results from your tests to restore hormonal balance using herbs, vitamins and other natural remedies.
