I hear this a LOT. So many of us are overloaded with commitments and responsibilities.. we may not take care of ourselves the way we should, we often don't sleep well (or wake up feeling refreshed). Then, if we find ourselves at the doctors surgery we often get told "your depressed" or "just relax a bit, here have a script for some sleeping pills" It's frustrating to say the least.

When ladies come to see me with the "TATT" symptom (Tired All The Time) I will first address the state of their ADRENAL SYSTEM. The adrenals are responsible for how your body deals with stress. You can waste a lot of time (and money) trying to feel better if you neglect to repair adrenal function first.
One of the tests I include often in my consultations with ladies is the "adrenal & female hormone profile" which includes both saliva and dried blood spot testing. This test provides a broad assessment of possible hormonal imbalances because it assesses sex and adrenal hormones. The two key hormone systems work in conjunction with one another, and an imbalance in one system affects the balance of others as well.
This comprehensive assessment looks at the diurnal cortisol levels in saliva and assesses six key female hormones which allows me to determine appropriate treatment to restore balance and achieve overall wellness. Common conditions where this test is really valuable include:

Time and time again I hear people ask "why do I feel so bad when they tell me there's nothing wrong?" My goal is to help solve your health problems, to get to the bottom of things, not just symptom control but to bring about a return to good health.
