Saliva Test for Hormone Levels

Saliva testing is just that, testing your saliva for all hormones.  A naturopath can furnish you with a kit for the specific hormone panel which you are wanting to test.  Follow the instructions exactly.  You will need to spit into a little tube several times a day over a series of days.  You would think you will never run out of saliva, but it can be surprisingly challenging to collect the amount that the sample requires.  Just be patient with yourself, and allow a few minutes of quiet during collection.

Your test kit is then returned to the Naturopath, who will then forward it directly to the lab and you will have your results within one or two weeks, depending on how far afield the lab is from your home town.  Saliva testing is not generally covered by government medical plans, but it may be covered under your corporate benefits.  Check with your administrator.
