Hormones are essentially the instigators for the processes our body undergoes. When they are out of balance with each other, the imbalance presents with symptoms that can affect your day to day life. There are different types of hormones, and two main types in regards to function. Bound hormones are hormones currently in your tissues and in use by the body. Unbound hormones are more of the hormone potential of the body and shows how much your body is producing. At Nutritionally Yours, we recommend saliva testing to look at these unbound hormones for the most complete possible picture of your hormone health. Simple blood tests only look at the hormones currently in use by the body, and it is difficult to separate the bound and unbound hormones in the blood. However, saliva ducts only allow unbound hormones through them – making the test simpler and more accurate. Saliva tests are also noninvasive since they do not require a blood draw, and the sample lasts longer than blood would. We look at various hormone types depending on your symptoms and needs. We look at general sex hormones, thyroid hormones, adrenal hormones, sex hormones and pituitary. All of these need to be in balance or you may be feeling messed up and hormonal. Once we have your hormone imbalance tests in, we provide you with a detailed protocol that will help get you feeling better, more in hormone control and hopefully alleviate your symptoms.
