Menopause Can Bring On A Confusing Array Of Symptoms...

...Some of which are hard to even identify as menopause-related.

That often has us playing symptom wack-a-mole with all kinds of remedies and hormones.

And while you can find success with careful experimentation, it’s so much easier to find that delicate balance our body needs when we have more information to guide our decision making.

Getting Good Hormone Data

Woman freaked out

Historically we’ve only been able to gather data about our health when working with doctors.

But only about 1 in 5 doctors have any training in post-menopausal women’s health, which too often leaves us managing our own healthcare in menopause.

Luckily, our generation is better-equipped to tackle our menopause symptoms than ever before.

Women have access to information, we can get bioidentical hormones online, and now we have access to Salivary Hormone Testing—a tool previously only available through integrative health practitioners.

Hormone Knowledge Is Power

Hormones are not only part of reproduction, they are involved with everything

From the time we are conceived to the time we die, our endocrine system regulates all biological processes, including the development of the brain and nervous system, the strength of our bones, the health of our cardiovascular system, as well as helping manage metabolism and blood sugar.

And the reason menopause can feel so crappy is that many key hormone levels drop significantly from age 45 onwards. 

The endocrine system is a sensitive system in our body, and when we can tune it up just right, we can feel great, but if we have too much or insufficient amounts of various hormones, we can feel worse.

That’s where Salivary Hormone Testing comes in.

Super Saliva


Most physicians order blood tests, but blood only shows the total amount of hormones in your body, and some of those hormones are already “bound” and unavailable for use.

Saliva tests are uniquely suited to measuring sex hormones because the saliva gland filters out bound hormones. The report shows you the amount of active hormones your body can actually use. 

Saliva is the only consistently effective test if you are using topical hormones.

Which Hormones to Test?


There are some key hormones that impact symptoms. Knowing these levels can help guide you in making appropriate adjustments.

Estriol: an estrogen vital for skin, elasticity, collagen, & vaginal health.

Estradiol: an estrogen important for bone, memory, serotonin, glucose transport into the brain, nerve growth factor, & improving insulin sensitivity.

Estrone: an estradiol metabolite, it is important to know its not getting too high.

Progesterone: this helps with sleep, reduces cholesterol, acts as a diuretic, supports thyroid, helps with fat burning, and mood regulation.

Testosterone: important for brain health, strength and vitality, libido, orgasm, bone density.

DHEA: a precursor hormone needed for stress management, memory, motivation, well being, & immune function.

Cortisol: regulates the immune system response, triggers stress response and maintains sleep-wake cycles. As a result of long-term stress or illness, cortisol production may change and result in lots of symptoms.


Data With Depth

Information you can actually use

With just four saliva samples, you will have the information you need about your hormone levels.

But we don’t stop there—our hormone tests are made with menopausal women in mind. The Hormone Report gives you your current hormone levels, the "normal" levels for women in your age range, and most importantly, a range of optimal levels to help you make supplementation decisions.

You don’t need a medical degree to understand your report, but should you want someone to talk to in more detail about your report, we can connect you with a Health Coach for additional information.

  • Have tried bioidentical hormones for 2-3 months, but are still struggling with symptoms
  • Have successfully reduced some symptoms only to trigger new ones
  • Or just have a deep desire to know their body well, and want to tackle menopause with as much data as possible

Saliva Hormone testing provides the insights you need to supplement more confidently.

Our Team's Response To Their Hormone Tests...


“My Saliva Test results were so helpful. I have a much clearer understanding of how my current BHRT is affecting my body, where things are "just right", AND where I'm lagging. It's been very helpful to bring the saliva test to my doctor so that we can compare the results with my bloodwork, in particular because 100% of my BHRT is topical application.”


“I couldn't believe how well the cortisol levels on the lab results mirrored my energy levels in real life. I was not surprised my testosterone was high, I've suspected I had insulin resistance, and high testosterone can be a indication of this. This motivated me to cut back on sugar and supplement with vitamin D3.”

Cynthia C.

“I was so excited to take this saliva hormone test! It was the first time I had ever had access to one! I learned which hormones were really low and was able to start adding those into my routine. I have noticed such a huge improvement! I feel so much better! I would have never figured this out without this test!”

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the difference between the Comprehensive Plus and the Menopause Hormone Panel?

    The main difference is the number of hormones tested. The Comprehensive Plus has all the sex hormones ( Estradiol, Estriol, Estrone, Progesterone, DHEA and testosterone) and Cortisol at 4 times during the day, for a total of 10 hormones, and provides a full hormone picture. The 4 cortisol samples allows the lab to plot the Cortisol Curve for a full picture of adrenal function. 

    The Menopause Hormone Panel includes just the sex hormones for a total of 6 hormones.

  • How long does it take to get my results back?

    From when FedEx picks up your sample it usually takes 7-10 business days for the sample to get to the lab, to go through the lab processing, for the results to be reviewed, and for the report to be available on our Lab Portal. We send you an email when the results are ready for you to access.

  • How do I access my results?

    You will receive an email that will have the instructions on how to access your results. Take a few minutes to read through the instructions a couple of times and then you’ll be ready to set up your access and download your results.

  • Why can my hormone tests from my doctor be “normal” but my saliva test shows I am low in some hormones?

    “Normal” reference ranges are not the same as “optimal” reference ranges. For example most women by age 70 will make very little estrogen, progesterone, and not much testosterone or DHEA. It is “normal” for levels to be low. However, it is often precisely the lack of hormones that results in symptoms. While those symptoms might be “normal” and common for a woman of 70, that doesn’t mean something can’t be done to resolve those symptoms. Adding hormones and getting her levels into an optimum range will help her be healthy and well.

  • Why isn’t saliva testing covered by insurance?

    It’s an interesting question—because saliva testing has been around for decades. Medicare generally does not cover saliva testing. Some private insurance may cover it, but many insurance companies still consider it “experimental” and so don’t cover it. 

  • What is estrone and why test it?

    Estrone is one of the three major estrogens and is much weaker than the power punching estradiol. Estrone can be converted to estradiol. Estrone levels will likely stay the same or may increase after menopause. Estrone is usually the only main estrogen found in post menopausal women. Estrone can be metabolized to both healthy and unhealthy metabolites. Estrone levels which are higher than the usual age range could lead to higher levels of harmful metabolites, especially those associated with a higher risk for breast and ovarian cancer. Knowing if your estrone levels are high is part of understanding any potential risks for developing breast and ovarian cancer.
