Cortisol examination + 0.5 hour consultation
Laboratory analysis of the stress hormone Cortisol.
To determine current hormonal status in the morning after waking up (Note: 3 measurements gives 1 value determination).
Why the Cortisol Survey?
Cortisol is one of the most important stress hormones. Cortisol supports the body during stress and allows the important processes in the body to be carried out. When there is prolonged stress and cortisol needs to be produced a lot, the body eventually becomes exhausted. The body remains in readiness and this costs a lot of energy.
Long-term stress can cause hormone imbalances, feeling agitated, insomnia, constant fatigue, bowel problems, high breathing and feelings of exhaustion, among other things.
During the half-hour consultation, one of our therapists will discuss the results with you and personalized advice will be given on how you can maintain or improve good cortisol levels.
Note: From 18 years of age. At a lower age, measurements can be taken, but there is no interpretation of the result, because there are no validated reference ranges for people under 18.
For reliable results, it is important to take the test on a day that is representative of the test subject's life. In extreme circumstances such as illness, mourning, etc., it is better to wait to take the test.
How does the sampling work?
You take this test easily by doing the saliva test yourself at home. You send in the saliva and after 2-3 weeks you will receive the results. You can discuss the results with our therapist.
