Hormone Testing 

Hormone Testing Is The First Step To Balancing Your Hormones And Feeling Good Again.

With the right hormone test, you can literally see where your hormones are too high, or low, and then make the changes needed to balance them and feel good again.

You can also see where hormone levels may be ‘at risk’ and make changes before it leads to other chronic health problems such as weight gain, mood swings, hair loss, skin problems, and the many other issues that stem from a hormonal imbalance.

There are 3 types of hormone tests available.

  • Saliva-This hormone test kit can be delivered and done at home.
  • Blood-Requires a lab visit or we can send a lab tech to your home.
  • Urine-This hormone test kit can be delivered and done at home.

What Are Hormones? 

Hormones are key messengers between your brain and body.  When the brain needs something done, it uses hormones to communicate the command to the target organ. 

Hormones are important for various body processes like growth, cell repair, appetite, metabolism, fertility, reproduction, pain regulation and more.  Any excess or deficiency can contribute to a variety of symptoms and health concerns.

Hormone deficiencies can also play a key role in the aging process. Critical hormones such as DHEA, testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone progressively decline as we age. 

That’s why it’s so important to know where your levels are at and keep them balanced through diet, exercise and supplementation when needed. 

Advanced hormone testing (via urine and/or saliva) is considered to be more comprehensive than blood hormone testing alone.  Salivary hormone testing reflects the level of free/active hormones, while urine testing can tell us about the downstream metabolites in addition to hormone levels.  Blood level hormones are bound and inactive, therefore not as revealing.

Urine steroid hormone analysis, like saliva hormone analysis, is non-invasive and convenient to do at home.   Producing a saliva sample is generally easy for most people, but conditions like dry mouth and some autoimmune diseases can make saliva collection difficult.   Urine collection is therefore easier for some, although collecting urine for a full 24 hours may be inconvenient. 

Urine steroid hormone analysis differs from saliva hormone testing in that it measures conjugated hormones.  Conjugated hormones are hormones that the body modifies by adding a chemical  (usually glucuronide or sulphate molecules) to facilitate their elimination in urine or stool.  The amount of hormone in urine essentially tells us what the body is getting rid of, not necessarily what is available for use.
