Better Everyday #45 Hormone Testing Options, Deciphering Menstrual Bleeding & Statins

May 12, 2017

We were due for a Q&A ladies and today’s the day!

We covered a question that comes in to us a hundred different ways: what testing should you get to assess your hormones?

So we walked through the difference between blood/serum, saliva and urine testing, the pros and cons, accuracy and the most important part: is that test evaluating what you really need to know about?

There was also a great question about spotting with ovulation so we gave a quick tutorial on interpreting menses and hormone related bleeding as well as reminding you all to always look past the ovaries when thinking about an estrogen-progesterone problem by evaluating stress, sleep, diet, and of course thyroid. Finally we tackled a big, big question on lowering cholesterol without statin medications.

Is a swap for a more natural cholesterol lowering supplement the way to go? Or is it part of a much bigger issue?
