Take the test: Is your hormone balance in balance?

Have you ever wondered, "Are my hormones out of balance?" and “Where should I start?” I hear these questions all the time. My advice: Let's start by identifying the possible hormonal imbalance you may have.
As a health coach, I regularly come across these imbalances:
  • High or low cortisol levels
  • High or low estrogen levels
  • Low progesterone levels
  • Low thyroid function
  • High androgens (PCOS)
Beyond testing, symptoms offer valuable insight into your overall well-being.

This is how you take the test:
  1. Take a pen and maybe print out the quiz. Otherwise, you can also mark the hooks on a piece of paper.
  2. For each category of hormonal imbalance you will find a list of symptoms. Review these symptoms and put a checkmark (✓) next to any you are currently experiencing. You can mark as many symptoms as apply to you.
  3. After checking the symptoms, add up the number of checkmarks for each category. The goal is to find out which category has the highest number of flagged symptoms.
The category with the highest number of symptoms flagged could indicate a possible hormonal imbalance you may be experiencing.

Interpretation of the test:

The category with the highest score could indicate the possible hormonal imbalance affecting you.

Could you have more than one hormonal imbalance? Absolutely! In fact, this happens more often than you think. Hormones do not exist in a vacuum. Our endocrine system is interconnected. So if there is an imbalance in one area, it is entirely possible to experience imbalances in other areas as well.
