Hormone Tests

Hormone tests - (a) Female (b) Male (c) Sleep hormone (d) Stress Hormone tests. (e) Specific cortisol tests

(a) Female Hormone  Test measures a number of hormones, that play many roles in the human body.

  1. Estrogens
    - Relieves menopausal symptoms, protect against osteoporosis, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, colon cancer, incontinence and tooth loss.
    - Enhances mental acuity and memory.
    - Increases serotonin and endorphin levels. (These are both “feel good” hormones)
  2. Progesterone
    - Decreases risk of endometrial cancer, enhances mood and has a calming effect.
    - Involved in the reduction of PMS and menopausal hot flushes.
    - Regulates fluid balance.
  3. Testosterone
    - Builds muscle and promotes muscle tone, increases libido, helps strengthen bones.

(b) The Male Hormone Tests  measures both DHEA (the hormone of “youth”) and Testosterone- we recommend that with all male hormone tests, clients also have adrenal assessment.


(c) The Sleep Disorder Test measures Melatonin levels in the body. Melatonin is the pineal hormone responsible for regulating sleep and waking cycles and is also reported to have powerful antioxidant properties.  While other factors will influence sleep, if melatonin levels are not optimal, 8hrs good sleep may be a challenge.


(d) The Stress Hormone Test Kit measures cortisol and DHEA levels in the body. The adrenal gland produces Cortisol the hormone that helps in responding and coping with stress, trauma, infections and environmental extremes. Cortisol also increases energy and metabolism, helps to regulate blood pressure and decreases inflammation.


We offer a Salivary cortisol test, that gives a 24 hr cortisol reading similar to that seen on Dr. Oz. DHEA helps protect against heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimers Disease, Lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. It can also increase and enhance energy levels, improve physical strength, libido, memory and immunity and protects against the effects of stress.


Other tests are available and can be discussed with your practitioner.


These tests are all done via an external pathology laboratory.
