Hormone and adrenal test

Hormonal imbalance including reproductive hormones, thyroid hormone and adrenal hormones can cause all kinds of disruption and illnesses in the body. From irregular periods, skin issues, low libido or low energy to fertility issues.

During your initial consultation, if hormonal balance is indicated, you may be recommend to specific hormonal testing of which there are different types.

The two main ways we test hormone are:

  • Blood test:  Represents total levels of bound hormone currently circulating in the body.
  • Saliva test: Shows unbound or ‘free’ hormones that are bio-available to the body.

You will be advised by your Naturopath what test/s are ideal for you after your initial assessment.  A treatment plan targeting any hormonal imbalance shown can then be undertaken.
