Hormones are an integral part of optimizing health & weight.
Revivelife has researched the hormone testing available for specificity, accuracy, quality, comprehensiveness and cost to bring you the nutrient tests offered. All hormone testing can be customized to suit your needs. If you don’t see a particular test listed here, feel free to ask if it is available. Results are generally available in 2 weeks once the lab has received your sample.
How do I know which hormone test is right for me? +
Your Naturopath or Nurse Practitioner will help assess which test is right for you, including an analysis of the most cost efficient path of testing. We recommend a New Patient Visit with one of our Naturopathic Doctors for the most comprehensive approach to your health or a Pre-Lab Visit for a quick snapshot prior to lab testing as there are many tests available. Lab testing alone is a one-dimensional picture of your health. The expertise of a health professional is required to create a three-dimensional picture for proper selection, and interpretation of lab testing. To complete your care we recommend booking your Post-Lab consult 2 weeks after testing to review your results and receive your tailored health plan.
How are these hormone tests different than the tests that my doctor does? +
The hormone tests available through Naturopaths, Nurse Practitioners or Integrative Doctors incorporate the latest scientific strategies and are more detailed than what traditional doctors most often use that are covered by provincial insurance plans such as OHIP. Your clinician will also refer you back to your medical practitioner when tests are available that are covered by insurance plans. Integrative practitioners will also assess your lab results based on optimal vs normal ranges to be proactive vs reactive in health.
Are these hormone tests covered under insurance plans? +
Third party insurance companies may cover all or a portion of your consultations and hormone lab testing. Please check with your individual provider for details and how to submit claims.
What are common symptoms of a hormone imbalance? +
How are hormone imbalances treated? +
Your Revivelife integrative practitioner will review all findings and create a personalized plan for you based on what are the root causes of the Hormone Imbalance. Often lifestyle modifications to promote optimal sleep, fitness, nutrition, and reduced stress create significant improvements in hormone balance and are the foundation of hormone health. Your plan will include essential nutrients such as vitamin B5, or others specific to you. Vitamin B5 is a crucial vitamin required to form the “mother hormone” pregnenolone from cholesterol that cascades into all other sex hormones. Your practitioner will share key food sources of vitamin B5, including pumpkin seeds, whole grains, avocados, and recipes that can help you include these foods in your daily menu. Targeted supplements, herbals, acupuncture, or a referral to our bio-identical hormone prescribers are customized to suit your needs.
