You may benefit from functional hormone testing!
Saliva hormone testing is established as the best method for accurate analysis of your active hormone levels. Testosterone, estrogen, progesterone DHEA and cortisol can be measured in saliva.
Your hormones work together to create an environment of balance and harmony. An imbalance of one can affect them all.
Hormone testing is NOT just for menopause… Are you Estrogen Dominant?
The poplar phrase “estrogen dominance” doesn’t mean that you have too much estrogen necessarily, but that you may have too little progesterone relative to your estrogen level. There is an ideal ratio between the two. You can have normal, even low levels of estrogen, but when you also have diminished progesterone levels, estrogen dominance results. Because estrogen is a cell-growing hormone, too much of it without progesterone to keep it in check will cause problems such as:
- Fibrocystic breasts
- Heavy/irregular menses
- Bone/mineral loss
- Ovarian cysts
- Water retention
- Low thyroid symptoms
- Foggy thinking
- Belly weight gain
- Depressed mood and tearfulness
The ratio is very valuable because it allows us to treat the estrogen dominance and help your body return to optimal health.
