Hormone Testing in Melbourne

Hormone Testing MelbourneMany conditions, from PMS to premature ejaculation, or endometriosis to fertility problems and more, can be traced back to the level of active, bio-available hormones present in a person’s body. There are several methods of hormone testing that can be used to assess these levels. Most commonly known is perhaps the standard blood hormone tests, which assess total levels found in the body. But when treating these hormonal-based conditions and afflictions, we want to assess the hormonal levels found in the body’s tissues as these are most likely to cause the symptoms a person experiences. In situations like this, saliva based hormone tests are the preferred method.

Why is saliva hormone testing important?

To enjoy and maintain optimal health and wellness throughout your day to day life, it’s important for men and women alike to have adequate and balanced levels of the hormones estrone, estradiol, estriol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, DHT, cortisol, and rostenedione and melatonin in your system. These can be assessed with saliva based hormone testing.

By gauging the bio-available hormone levels present in your saliva, your MNMC naturopath is able to provide you with a comprehensive, detailed assessment of your body’s hormonal environment and composition. From this they will be able to ascertain whether any symptoms you are experiencing are associated with a hormonal imbalance or lack of specific active hormones. This then enables your naturopath to address the cause of the problem by rectifying any imbalance discovered throughout the test.

What happens in the test?

Saliva hormone tests could not be easier. During your appointment with your naturopath, they will supply you with a test kit where you can conduct the test in the privacy of your own home. All we require of you is a sample of your saliva, typically collected in the morning and sent in the post to the lab specified. It’s a pain-free process and we require no blood to be drawn.
