1) Make sure at least one month has passed since you started taking hormone supplements before beginning any of the HormoneChecks. Time is required before the hormone reaches equilibrium with binding proteins in the blood, specimens collected too soon do not accurately reflect hormone concentrations in the saliva.
2) The specimen must be collected 24 hours after last dose. Preferably, the specimen should be collected in the morning, before the daily morning dose is taken. If you are taking one of the hormones or supplements twice a day, consult with your Health Care Provider about reducing your dosage to once a day.
ARE YOU HANDLING STRESS THE BEST WAY FOR YOUR BODY?
Stress is good for you.
It's true. Stress is often thought of in a negative light--and with good
reason. However, stress, both physical and emotional, also helps your body stay
active and alert, more prepared for obstacles it may face. Two hormones, DHEA
(dehydroepiandrosterone) and cortisol, are your body's main forces for coping
with stress. An imbalance of these hormones puts your body at a great
disadvantage for handling the sometimes overwhelming feeling that stress
That's where StressCheckcomes in.
StressCheck by BodyBalance measures your DHEA (sulfate) and cortisol
levels to determine if they are properly balanced. Classified as "stress"
hormones--DHEA and cortisol are hormones that serve as markers of stress
response, regulating how your body reacts during stress. Each hormone is
released into your bloodstream from your adrenal glands when your body feels
stress and helps your body make the necessary adjustments to protect your
These two hormones balance each other to ensure a healthy stress response.
DHEA is anabolic, a constructive hormone that can boost the immune system,
decrease blood pressure, and helps to regulate sleep, among its many functions.
Cortisol is a catabolic hormone, a disruptive hormone that, in an unbalanced
state, can weaken and break down the immune system, increase blood pressure, and
prevent restful sleep. Yet when your body feels stress, cortisol is essential.
Cortisol maintains and raises your energy levels to assist your body during that
stressful period. Together. these two hormones work to provide your body with
optimal stress response and good overall health.
