In order to successfully implement any type of #estrogen #progesterone or #testosterone modifying approach, we must get the entire picture of the hormone fluctuation that takes place during the ~28-35 day female cycle. .. An 11 sample saliva test, with samples collected periodically throughout the entire cycle (rather than one blood sample taken on Tuesday, @ 9:30am; day 6 of the cycle) allows us to chart, graph, and analyze the desired peaks, dips, and surges in the aforementioned hormones (along with their precursors: #fsh #lh and #dhea ) we need to see throughout an optimally functioning cycle. ..

This is crucial for all function, but is obviously pertinent for matters of #fertility , severity of #pms symptoms (i.e. #headache , #cramping , #bloating ), heavy bleeding, spotting, #pcos , and beyond. .. Check out an example of this test, along with an explanation of how we interpret the findings over at: https://onebody.live . .. #insulin #endocrine
