Hormonal Profiles

What are they and what are they used for?

When our organism becomes ill, suffers inflammation, physical exertion, incorrect lifestyles, or during certain periods in our life (menopause, aging), a situation of stress takes over.

This can lead to imbalanced hormone production, which alters all the other balances and main body functions.

NatrixLab Hormonal Profiles provide fundamental information to identify these imbalances, and to give specific advice to reinstate our hormonal balance.

Who should take the test?

Where and how to take the test?

The test is performed by analysing a saliva and blood sample, and can be requested in analysis laboratories, medical centres, health spas and pharmacies that offer NatrixLab diagnosis services.

Preparing for the test: fill the salivary test tubes, having in mind that it’s not recommended to eat, drink or wash your teeth in the two hours before the sampling. For sampling collecting hours and for special profiles, that need eight hours fasting, refer to the instruction manual of the diagnostic kit.

…and afterwards?

 

A specific diet combined with medication, if necessary and prescribed by a specialist, can form effective treatment to rebalance hormonal secretions in order to relieve or improve the related symptoms.

Repeating the test

We recommend repeating the test after 3-6 months. To monitor treatment or a pathology, we recommend repeating the test according to your doctor’s instructions.
