Why do you need a hormone test?
Hormones affect virtually every single aspect of your health from the way we look to the way we act and feel. Many factors can affect our hormone balance such as aging, toxin buildup, microbial imbalance and emotional or physical stress.
If your hormones are out of balance you don't feel well--your world becomes flipped upside-down! There are many symptoms related to hormone imbalances--some that you are probably familiar with like hot flashes, night sweats and PMS--and others that might not strike you as a hormone imbalance such as:
incontinence, migraines, depression, wrinkly skin, weight, cold hands or feet, acne, thyroid dysfunction, endometriosis, PCOS, infertility, irritability, concentration, PMS, short term memory issues, no energy, poor muscle tone, poor balance and coordination, excess facial hair or hair loss, inability to handle stress...
I've had blood tests done, why is this different?
Unfortunately, standardized routine blood tests don’t adequately test for or reflect hormonal imbalance. Therefore, you may have, as a patient, been told that the problem "is in your head" or is due to your "nerves," when actually it's in your hormones.
We use Diagnos-tech Laboratory’s salivary-based tests that are accurate within 92-96%, much more accurate than blood testing. Following is an excerpt from their website explaining the difference between saliva-based and blood testing:
"Why? In order to accurately study how hormones clinically affect a patient, it is necessary to look at hormone levels dynamically. In other words, hormone fluctuations are just as important as their level at any given one point in time. The practice of including a time component to the evaluation of a patient is called chronobiology. There are many well-known chronobiological processes: sleep/wake cycles, seasonal mood changes, a woman’s monthly menstrual cycle, etc. It turns out that the adrenal glands are controlled by a daily cycle…as is the thyroid gland.
The hormones that influence many of the cycles in our lives can be viewed as markers to check if our body is in a healthy state from a standpoint of chronobiology. For example, multiple sample outpatient saliva testing allows a clinician to monitor the hormone regulation of a woman over her ENTIRE monthly cycle! This information can have profound diagnostic significance and can lead to therapeutic strategies over looked by one sample testing of her hormones.
In summary, enzyme linked laboratory analysis of the saliva has become scientifically accepted, clinically applicable, an excellent alternative to serum testing, the only way to reasonably study a patient’s chronobiology, and economically feasible.
What happens after I get the results?
Specialized testing is necessary to determine hormone levels and whether each one is in appropriate balance with the other. Once the levels are determined it is important to have a knowledgeable practitioner who understands the delicacy of hormone balancing to interpret the lab results and design the appropriate course of treatment. That is what we offer at Alternative Health Atlanta.
Our approach is unique in many ways among medical and alternative health practices in helping patients recover their health and quality of life.
Our purpose is to help patients fully recover from stubborn health problems and to prevent these issues from coming back. At the same time we work to help the person improve their health so that their quality of life and stability of health are improved (often dramatically). We don’t treat a patient a few times to help them feel a bit better for a while. Patients come to us to help them resolve the causes of their problems.
We specialize in hormone imbalances. We have helped many patients that have not responded well to medical or alternative treatments. We have numerous tools and protocols to handle really difficult or “impossible” cases that have resisted all previous efforts.
Patients find that with us they get stable RESULTS instead of just a diagnosis or explanation of why they aren’t getting well. We believe we can help you too.
