SAm BEau Patrick Hormone Testing

The GOOD news is you can measure them accurately on a saliva test, easily and affordably.

Hormone imbalances are very common. In a study in 2010, 84% of women reported feeling "hormonal" at some time and most are not detected or diagnosed. 

Hormones testing is best done on saliva testing for most accurate results, and interpreted by a professional who specialises in this area.

Hormones are produced by both sexes.

Your body makes stress hormones, sex hormones, sugar hormones, cardiovascular hormones... In fact the body uses hormones to relay messages to one part of your body to another. 

If you feel stressed, are not eating foods appropriate for your needs, are suffering with a nutritional deficiencies and other factors, your hormones can go out of balance. 

There are also times in your life where are your hormone status naturally changes such as puberty, pregnancy, breast feeding and menopause.

YOU are not broken if you experience symptoms during this time, nor should these normal states be treated like a disease.

If you are suffering with symptoms, it is because your hormones are not balanced.

Balancing your hormones will usually settle your symptoms, and usually negate the need for medication which is the safe, cheapest way to go. 

The below is an example of a saliva hormone test result. This woman had been given HRT (estradiol) yet ALREADY had high estrogen.

Hormone imbalances may present in many ways:

  • Irritability
  • Low energy levels
  • An inability to relax
  • Weight gain, or inability to lose weight
  • Sleep issues
  • Fertility issues
  • Flushing and sex drive issues!
  • Menopause - flushes, insomnia, weight gain, low sex drive, depression, anxiety
  • Cancers affecting the reproductive organs eg: breast tissue, ovaries, endometrium

Trying to guess the hormone that is “out” is like trying to find the needle in the hay-stack. You may get it right, but even with over 33 years experience in reading hormone results, I still find it can be tricky and not easy.

Saliva testing for sex hormones (and even some adrenal hormones) is considered “Gold Standard.”

Unfortunately in many countries, including Australia, saliva testing is not covered by Medicare.

However a small investment into your health may one day save your life, or at least improve it!

Sudden cessation of HRT is not recommended so if this is you please contact Sam for more options.

Frequently Asked Questions

How accurate is the test?

Testing the above hormones are best done on saliva testing.

Saliva testing has the advantage of reflecting non-protein bound, or  the "free" active hormone component.

Steroid hormones mostly bind to certain proteins in the blood. It is the free non-bounded hormone that is more readily available to your cells and best reflects your hormone levels.

Another benefit is being able to measure what hormones are absorbed, where as serum (blood levels) don't show you that.
