Did you know there is a non-invasive way to check your hormones, whether male or female? Well, there is! It’s called saliva hormone testing. A saliva test measures hormones like progesterone, estrogen, DHT, DHEA, Cortisol, and testosterone. It has been shown that saliva hormone testing is the most accurate measurement of the body’s availability of cortisol, DHEA, Estrogen, Progesterone, and Testosterone.
You may ask why I should do a hormone saliva testing rather than a traditional blood test? Saliva hormone testing is much more specific and correctly identifies hormones at the cellular level, in contrast to a serum (blood) test, which measures the level of hormones circulating in the bloodstream. Also, saliva hormone testing has a 92-96% accuracy rate. The saliva test is very convenient and can be collected at home or work.
Most blood tests focus on hormones present in a person’s tissues, whereas saliva hormone testing looks at the hormone levels that influence the tissues. Saliva results are a more accurate reading for the clinician. Hormone saliva testing is better at relating to specific symptoms of excess or deficiency, therefore, helping the clinician get to the cause of the presenting symptoms.
Saliva hormone testing can tell you if you have a hormone or an adrenal imbalance.
For women who may be experiencing imbalance symptoms like: hot flashes and night sweats, depression, PMS, PCOS, irregular menstrual cycles, inability to lose weight, vaginal dryness, skin changes, and hair loss, saliva hormone testing can help you learn how to balance out your hormones, therefore, alleviating these symptoms and feeling healthier and happier.
The hormone saliva test can also help men experiencing symptoms such as fatigue, erectile dysfunction, decreased strength, hair loss, lack of desire for life and activities, and depression.
