Sometimes in life our view sort of changes towards negativity. Sometimes when things that used to bring you joy no longer do, it could be related to hormones. Women going through hormonal fluctuations often find themselves feeling hopeless (even though they may not realize that it is hormonal). This can especially be difficult when women have had blood work done to check hormone levels that come back as “normal.”
What is Estrogen?
Estrogen is a naturally occurring group of chemically similar hormones that are responsible for female reproduction and the development of sexual characteristics. Although known as a female sex hormone; men have estrogen as well. This group consists of estrone, estradiol, and estriol.
Why Women Need Optimal Estrogen Levels
Estrogen is vital because it protects bones, heart, and brain health. During perimenopause and menopause, estrogen affects mood, sexual function, and the metabolism. Common symptoms of low estrogen levels include the following:
Mood swings (which may include irritability, anxiety, and depression)
Painful sex (usually from vaginal dryness)
Urinary tract infection
Gosh, after reading all those symptoms no wonder many women lose hope of ever feeling like they used to, again especially if they are being told that their hormone levels are “normal!” We want you to know that there is Hope! Many women have been in the same situations, and we have been able to help them to get back to feeling…well Alive again. After all, life is too short to barely make it through the day (or night for that matter.)
How to Check Your Estrogen Levels With Saliva
We understand hormones and want to help you manage them naturally. You can start taking control over your hormones with our non-invasive Saliva Hormone Test Kit. Saliva hormone testing is more accurate than blood testing because it checks for the bio-available or what is called free-fractioned levels in your body. Blood testing only tests the levels that are present in the tissues. However that does not mean that the hormones are working correctly for you. Don’t wait another day, get your estrogen levels checked, you will be glad that you did!
