The female hormone levels and ratios are particularly important for us to be able understand any abnormalities in the female cycle. It makes sense that all hormone systems work in concert with each other to maintain a state of balance.
The main hormones affecting the menstural cycle and fertility are produced by the glands in the brain and by the ovaries. Imbalances in these hormones can present as disruptions to a normal healthy cycle and greatly affect a sense of overall wellbeing. Disruptions include everything from mild or severe pre-menstrual tension, endometriosis, early onset menopause and polycystic ovarian syndrome and of course imbalances are highly important to flag breast cancer, which is a attributable to dominance of aggressive estrogens.
There are naturally ‘good’ and ‘bad’ forms of estrogen that naturally occur in the body and we want to ensure we are driving the positive pathways. This test will help you understand which hormones pathways may be dominant and start to intervene in order to reduce symptoms as well as help prevent more serious hormone related diseases down the track.
