Hormones are information messengers which influence the cellular response. When one of the hormone is in deficiency hormone imbalance occurs, manifesting itself through a variety of symptoms. The main group of hormones that are being investigated in saliva are sex hormones (Progesterone, Estradiol and Testosterone). Salivary hormones (especially sex hormones) analysis is useful in determination of menopausal problems, infertility treatment and for the introduction of hormonal therapy.
The second group are the hormones that affect our well-being and respond to everyday problems such as stress in the workplace, Burnout and depression. Salivary hormones analysis of cortisol and DHEA and melatonin can be used to assess the health of Adrenal gland, how it impacts the thyroid and why we can’t sleep.
Our specialty is hormone determination from saliva, in such we can measure free levels of hormones. Free level means it is a biologically active hormone – which, if necessary, eliminated in the blood, and then travels to cells. Bound hormones are more present in the blood – a 95-99% of the supply of the hormone, however, because they are tied to transfer proteins are not active. Therefore salivary hormones are the best way to know your exact number.
