Human saliva is one of the most accurate measurements of human hormone levels.
Hormones circulating in the saliva represent the hormones that are actually available to the body. Only five percent of the hormone levels circulating in the bloodstream are available to the tissues and cells. So the water stores are the most effective vehicles in which the tissues have access to hormones. Because hormones are sticky and have less resistance in a matrix of water, saliva is a more accurate gauge for hormones opposed to the bloodstream. Plus, every cell in the human body is immersed in a pool of water.
Dr. Hull highly recommends having a saliva hormone profile test performed if you have concerns about hormonal imbalances, high cholesterol, hair loss, or loss of libido. As with the hair analysis, the key to a good hormone analysis is in the interpretation. Dr. Hull includes a full interpretation report with each hormone analysis.
We no longer offer the hormone test, please consider our hair analysis.
