This profile analyses how you regulate sleep and stress throughout the day and gives us a good indication of when your body is likely to be suffering from fatigue. It does this by testing your saliva at three times in a day to determine patterns in your hormone production.
The reason this test is important is that long term overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones can disrupt almost all of your body’s processes. This puts you at increased risk of further health challenges such as anxiety, depression, digestive challenges, heart conditions (heart disease, high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke). Long term poor quality sleep can result in an increased risk of all of the above, and diabetes and obesity.
DEPENDING ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE TESTING PROFILES YOU HAVE REQUESTED, RESULTS CAN TAKE UP TO 3 WEEKS.
Cortisol is a hormone that is released by the adrenal glands predominantly at times of stress or danger. Too much cortisol can result in weight gain, easy bruising, flushed face and muscle weakness.
Melatonin is a neurotransmitter that should be at its peak at night, and low levels can impact your sleep quality. It is also important in inflammation regulation, blood sugar, healing, mood and metabolism.
DHEA is frequently referred to as the anti-aging hormone. Low levels can indicate auto-immune conditions, memory loss, mood problems and low energy. Conversely, high levels can indicate fatigue, weight gain, acne, irritability, stress and infertility.
