During your initial consultation, if hormonal balance is indicated, you may be recommend to specific hormonal testing of which there are different types.
Blood test: Represents total levels of bound hormone currently circulating in the body.
Saliva test: Shows unbound or ‘free’ hormones that are bio-available to the body.
Urine testing: shows hormone metabolism/excretion as compared to normal levels.
You will be advised by your Naturopath what test/s are ideal for you after your initial assessment. A treatment plan targeting any hormonal imbalance shown can then be undertaken.
Hormone testing can range from $50-$550 depending on how extensive the testing is required to be.
