Have you had blood work results come in only to say that you are fine, and yet you do not feel “fine”? This can be so frustrating! Many people are going through or have been through the same situation where they feel “off,“ but their blood work isn’t showing anything besides “normal“. Most people are not aware that there is another way to test their hormones, this is through the saliva. Saliva hormone imbalance tests are more accurate than a blood test for hormone levels. This is because the saliva reveals the free-fractioned concentrations in the body. The free -fractioned levels represent the hormones that are actually available to work correctly for you at the cellular level. The blood levels of hormones only test for the levels that are present in the tissues. Just because the hormones show that they are present does not necessarily mean that they will work properly for you.
Here are some of the hormones that can be tested through the saliva:
Testosterone, Progesterone, Estrone (E1), Estradiol (E2), Estriol, DHEA-S, Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), Androstenedione, Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)
Hormones are essential to our everyday life! We need them to be balanced so we can function properly. Not being able to operate at our best can negatively affect our health and quality of life.
Here are some signs that your hormones may be imbalanced:
Facial hair growth
Low Sex Drive
Trouble concentrating or focusing
Those are just a few symptoms. There are too many to list depending on which hormone is out of balance. Thank goodness there is a way to test for hormone imbalances outside of blood-work! That is through the saliva.
