Typically, the main type of hormone tests provided by traditional doctors are standard blood tests (because they are covered by insurance), which unfortunately do not measure free, 'bioavailable' I.e. active hormone levels, and therefore do not shed nearly as much light on the key imbalances behind the symptoms we are presently experiencing!

Rye here 👋! I've had gut issues for as long as I can remember, but it wasn't until my mid 20's that I started experiencing extreme bloating and stabbing stomach aches daily, and I became desperate to get to the root! I saw multiple doctors who told me I had "IBS" (a blanket term for pretty much any gut symptom under the sun) and told me to cut out gluten, dairy and corn. I also saw a gastroenterologist who told me that it's perfectly "normal" to be constipated and bloated (adding that he has a p…
