Hormone Saliva Tests Knowing your hormone levels is important.

Hormone Saliva Tests Knowing your hormone levels is important.Hormones exist in harmony with each other – partners in a delicate balancing act. When balance is lost, hormone deficiencies and excesses can become toxic to the body causing unwanted symptoms, disorders and disease.
The first step to managing your hormones is to start with a detailed assessment of your hormone levels.
While laboratories measure hormones in several ways, research indicates that the most accurate way to do so is through saliva.
Saliva testing is a fast, simple and accurate way to find out what’s really going on with your hormones. If you have a hormone imbalance, hormone testing can be a valuable tool for creating hormone balance.
Knowing your saliva hormone levels is an important first step in assessing where your hormones may be out of balance and determining whether your current natural hormone regimen is working for you. If you are wondering whether certain symptoms may be due to a hormone imbalance, this is a quick, easy and accurate way to find out.
Why do I need hormone testing?
One size does not fit all when it comes to hormones! For decades western medicine has prescribed hormone replacement therapy as if everyone needed the same thing and the same amount. Nothing could be further from the truth. Your hormones are like your fingerprints and in order to achieve optimal health, you need to know what your specific imbalances are. Saliva testing can be used to determine your current hormonal state as well as monitor your supplementation with natural hormone medications.
