Hormonal Assessments Burlington

Hormonal Assessments


Interactions between five hormones – estradiol, progesterone, cortisol, DHEA and testosterone – are fundamental to a woman’s health and well-being. Hormone imbalance can negatively impact health in a number of ways, including:

  • Weight gain
  • Mood problems and depression
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Hot flashes
  • Bone loss
  • Breast cancer

Although it can occur at any time, hormone imbalance is particularly prevalent in women beginning at perimenopause. Learn more about each hormone and how an imbalance can lead to symptoms and chronic disease 


Four hormones – testosterone, estradiol, cortisol and DHEA – are key in men’s health. Hormone imbalance may lead to:

  • Bone loss
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Memory loss
  • Mood problems and depression
  • Breast enlargement
  • Weight gain
  • Prostate enlargement (called Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or BPH)

How we test

Saliva hormone testing is an excellent way to identify hormone imbalance in women and men, as saliva measures hormone that has actually entered tissue (before getting into saliva, the hormone must pass through saliva gland tissue). It is painless, stress free and easy to self administer at home.

If testing reveals a hormone imbalance, your NEX Wellness team can recommend non-invasive treatment approaches such as lifestyle changes and nutritional support, including appropriate supplements.
