There’s a vast misconception surrounding the topic of hormones and my intention for this post is to clear some of that up. Whenever I mention “hormone” to my patients they will often either agree with a “knee-jerk” reaction or have some preconceived notion surrounding the topic. What I mean is they will often relate hormones to the ideas of sex and things being “out of balance”. That’s just the tip of the iceberg!
In the previous post we discussed what hormones are and how they work. Now we’ll discuss how you need to properly test them.
Let’s discuss the tests you need to perform…
What tests can i use?
- Blood (serum)
Order Salivary Tests
The kits will be sent to your home directly. Turn-around time is about 10-12 business days. Once the doctor receives the results he will then contact you and craft a plan to balance out your hormones.
