Have you ever been to the doctor knowing something’s wrong and you’re pretty sure it’s your hormones, so he runs blood tests and you go back for the results to be be told they’re all normal? How can your blood tests be normal when you feel like crap?

It’s because your hormones are not easily measured by blood work. In fact what’s floating around in your blood is not an adequate representation of how your hormones are actually functioning in your body. Taking blood work to measure hormone function is like trying to take a census by counting cars on the freeways on Los Angeles. The cars are not reflective of how many people live in LA! Plus it matters what time of day and what day of the week you count the cars!

Same with you Hormones. Your hormones are not the same every minute of every day. Each of your hormones has its own circadian rhythm, it’s own weekly and monthly rhythm as well as its own seasonal rhythm. So how you going to know if your hormones are out of balance? Your symptoms are more reflective of your hormones.

Are you sleeping through the night? If not your cortisol, estrogen and melatonin may be out of balance.

Are you having trouble losing weight? If so, your thyroid hormones, estrogen, cortisol and insulin may be out of balance.

Are you tired all the time? If so, then your insulin, thyroid hormones specifically T3, and DHEA may be out of balance.

Are you losing your hair? If so, then your DHEA and T3 may be out of balance.

You see how complicated it can be.

You can spend a lot of time and money tweaking each of your hormones. In fact that’s most doctors focus on – just one hormone at a time. Yet they all work together. It’s kind of like taking your car into the mechanic. And they fix the one squeak. So you take your car home and then something else goes wrong. So you take it back to the mechanic. And they fix another thing. And then your car won’t start. And now they think you need a whole new transmission! So why didn’t the mechanic look at the whole engine? Why didn’t they just get to the root of the problem and fix it the first time?

The same thing happens when you go to doctor and they give you a prescription that addresses one symptom. That’s not getting to the root issue. That is a bandage, at best. Because sooner or later, you are going to need an overhaul!
