Balancing Hormones for Both Men and Women

If you are male or female, young or o
ld, hormones play a key role in your health.  Many people become frustrated when they tell their doctor about mood swings, inability to lose weight and insomnia just to be put on antidepressants or sleep aids.  These may relieve symptoms for only a short while and they have serious side effects over the long run.

It is important to get to the root of the problem instead of covering up symptoms.  Synthetic drugs are not what the body is craving.  Many times the natural hormones in your system need to be balanced.

Saliva Testing

The best way to test hormone levels is with saliva testing.  Hormones flow through the blood in combination of active and inactive forms.  When blood is used to assess hormone balance these different types of hormones confuse the issue.

Hormones secreted into the saliva are all active hormones.  This measure gives a much more accurate hormone levels available for the body to use.
