My passion is to empower you to achieve peak health and wellness in menopause and hormone and other testing can support this. There are many tests available to functional medicine practitioners which are widely recognised as reliable both in the industry and with GP’s. They often go further than what a GP can offer under the NHS. The results are very helpful in painting you’re health picture and is especially true where testing hormones is indicated.
The saying what’s measured, gets managed is true! We don’t know what we don’t know! That’s very powerful information and why I believe in testing and not guessing! Once you have the facts you can explore your options more effectively. You can find tests online by doing a quick quiz but these won’t be properly personalised. It may not measure what you need to know. Also how will you interpret it? And how will you use the results to improve your diet and lifestyle without an Optimal Nutrition Plan?
I will advise you on the most effective tests for your health concerns that give the most valuable information in relation to cost. The additional test cost will be advised which will include additional time for interpretation. In many ways this cost is balanced by the time we save by being more specific in our approach. You can be assured your Optimal Nutrition Plan will utilise this information tailoring food and lifestyle changes accordingly.
Can you test your hormones in menopause?
So what are your hormones doing? It’s a good question especially when your experiencing different symptoms associated with the menopause. I can support you without testing as there is so much that can be done to rebalance hormones initially. However, if weight is hanging around, your hot and bothered and losing sleep you may want a more specific plan then testing can really help. I hear you say ‘tests can’t accurately measure the hormonal changes’ in menopause?
Because of my work around nutrition and hormones, I often use the DUTCH test. A comprehensive hormone test that gives many hormone and neurotransmitter markers.
