Do you feel tired, depressed, and generally less vibrant? Are your family and friends concerned about you? You could benefit from a hormone imbalance test to help balance out your life and get you feeling alive again. Life is busy, so you need to take control of your hormones now. The role of hormones in the body is essentially to give processes a jolt or start to get them going. When hormones are low, your body can feel sluggish and you may feel sad. When hormones are high, you may feel anxiety, have heart palpitations, have trouble sleeping, have weight gain and even skin breakouts. Hormones are produced by various glands in the body including the thyroid, ovaries, testes, and the adrenals. The ovaries and testes produce sex hormones – androgens (testosterone) and estrogens and progesterone. For women to feel good I like progesterone to be a little higher then estrogen, plus have a healthy level (but not too high ) of DHEA and testosterone. In men I like to see high levels of DHEA and testosterone with lower levels of progesterone and estrogen.
At Nutritionally Yours, we do saliva testing to get the best information about your hormone levels. Blood is the other common means of testing – but since blood is a transport system in the body it can only show us the hormones currently in use at an exact moment. Saliva, on the other hand, shows us the unbound hormone levels – or the hormone potential of the body. Saliva is also a non-invasive test so there is no blood draw needed. Saliva is also more stable then blood.
