Thinking of all the female hormone changes our body endures during a lifetime, it seems like women got the short end of the stick. Hormone balance is something we women strive for so we feel “normal” Menopause or “the change” can begin as early as the 30s, but for most women, it starts during our 40’s and 50’s. For most women, knowing how to test our hormones via the saliva (not blood) Female Hormones Testing could be our new best friend! Menopause can also begin immediately after a hysterectomy for some women.
Women going through menopause, like me, will do almost anything to feel normal and have true hormone balance or what I call, hormone control. Some menopause symptoms may include insomnia, weight gain, depression, hot flashes, insomnia, anxiety, racing heart and thinning hair or hair loss and these are only some of the symptoms. Needless to say, saliva hormone testing should be your first thought as these symptoms begin. Understanding your body and paying close attention to the changes can help you know exactly what your body needs so you can feel amazing again. When these symptoms are not dealt with, physical and emotional health can decline as will quality and joy of life.
We offer Saliva Hormone Testing for female hormones and cortisol (the stress hormone) which you can do in the privacy of your own home. All of our test kits can be ordered online via our website or with a call to our clinic. We mail your kit, and your collected sample is mailed to our lab. Results, interpretation, and protocol will be sent to you within 3 weeks. Voila! Nutritionally Yours makes all of our wellness testing convenient and confidential!
Here are the two tests we suggest to give you the answers you want for hormone balance.
- Saliva Female Hormones + Cortisol
- Comprehensive Thyroid – if the thyroid is not working at top-notch it can cause symptoms of hormone imbalance.
