Adrenal Fatigue Salivary Test

Adrenal Fatigue Sample Report

Hormones are essential chemical messengers which regulate routine processes in the body. Hormone imbalances can affect a wide range of body functions including:

  • metabolism and appetite,
  • heart rate
  • sleep cycles
  • reproductive cycles and sexual function
  • general growth and development
  • mood and stress levels
  • body temperature

All of these can negatively affect quality of life and may increase the risk for hormone-related diseases, including hormone-sensitive cancers.

A comprehensive assessment of individual hormones would provide patterns of imbalances in different hormones, while assessment of their metabolites would provide beneficial information on affected downstream pathways. This would help to treat underlying causes of hormone imbalances and identify disease risks associated with individual hormone metabolites.

Assessment of sex and adrenal hormones is critical to differentiate hormonal imbalance from other common conditions which have overlapping symptoms, such as: chronic infections, toxic exposures, GI malabsorption, hepatic detoxification problems, and metabolic disorders.

Hormones, especially adrenal hormones and sex hormones, are interconnected with neurotransmitters. An imbalance in adrenal and sex hormones could lead to neurotransmitter imbalances which could revert back to cause hormonal imbalances. Consider running a Vibrant Hormones panel alongside a Neurotransmitters panel for the most accurate assessment of causes of hormone imbalances and their connected neurotransmitter pathways.

The Vibrant Hormones panel is the most comprehensive panel available to assess the status of hormones in the human body. It eliminates the guesswork of determining root causes of generic and global symptoms and provides practitioners with a clear-cut picture of hormonal imbalances present.
