Blood tests for active Hormones are irrelevant
Blood tests measure only the protein-bound hormones not the free, bioavailable (active) hormones - Hormones, such as estrogen and PROGESTERONE are fat soluble, i.e. not dissolvable in water, and must be attached to a protein to be transported in the blood to the appropriate organ.
Many hormones are secreted in a pulsatile fashion. Causes blood levels fluctuate;
Conventional medicine persists in using serum tests rather than urine or saliva tests - since results are incorrectly low, physicians are apt to greatly over-dose their patients, resulting in success rates usually < 30%.
Transdermally absorbed hormones are biologically active (not protein bound) and show up in the mucins of saliva. Therefore saliva hormone radioimmunoassay (RIA) is a relevant and convenient way to measure how much transdermal, free estrogen, PROGESTERONE , TESTOSTERONE, DHEA and other fat soluble hormones are actually available to carry messages to other organs. Women experiencing perimenopausal symptoms will almost always have salivary hormone levels that reflect a PROGESTERONE deficiency, estrogen excess or both.
Normal saliva PROGESTERONE level. About 0.3-0.5 ng/ml. With 1.5ng/ml at the upper limit.
You can order saliva tests to determine your hormone levels online. Here are some example sites:
A 24 hour urine test is the most accurate testing method for hormone levels - advocated by Dr. Jonothon Wright, who along with Dr. Lee, is considered a pioneer in introducing bioidentical hormone therapy in the U.S..

Being water-soluble, the protein-bound hormones pass through the kidneys and are excreted in the urine.

"The medical kit of the future"
General electrotherapy health benefits. Used systemically and/or locally at specific problem areas of the body, its effective application has many benefits:
|Detoxification||Wellness / Healthy aging||Pain relief|
|Relief from insomnia||Immune system restoral||Anti-Inflammatory|
|Maximizes cellular energy production||Accelerated tissue /bone
|Muscle relaxation / rehabilitation||Increased blood oxygen
There are several reasonably affordable electrotherapy devices available for personal use. The following electrotherapies are those that have received a significant amount of positive feedback:
|Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy|
|Near Infrared (NIR) class 4 laser therapy|
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) applies specific frequency patterns to the head area, with the following benefits:
|Balances neurotransmitters||Relieves pain||Treats depression|
|Substance abuse withdrawal||Relieves insomnia||Relieve stress / anxiety|
