Hormones are chemicals in the body released by cells or glands that send messages to various parts of the body. There are various hormones each with their own purpose. However, because hormone levels can fluctuate, our bodies can be subjected to some unpleasant and unhealthy effects. Hormones, including estrogen, testosterone, and adrenaline play a large role in healthy body function. Hormone issues can wreak havoc on your body and personal well-being. Fortunately, there is an easy and noninvasive test that is an extremely useful tool used to diagnose issues affecting our health.

What Is Saliva Testing?

Saliva testing is an easy and affordable tool that can provide extensive information about the state of the hormones in our bodies. It is in saliva that active hormones are found, andapple-18721 those which affect how a person feels. The results of your saliva test, which are typically available within a week, provide an extensive picture of your body's emotional, immunological, nutritional, and metabolic health.

Once your initial saliva test is completed, a skilled chiropractor can develop a customized healing plan to improve your health. Additional saliva tests may be done as treatment advances to help monitor your progress.

The Healing Process

Treatment programs for hormone imbalance must be customized to each individual’s body to be helpful. You may be familiar with the term “Hormone Replacement Therapy” as a medical treatment for hormone imbalance. Though popular, this type of therapy has drawbacks because it is based on the principle that each individual requires the same hormones and amounts for optimal health.
