The series of self-tests assess your level of each of the fifteen most important hormones.
What is Hormone Balance?
A hormone (from Greek - "impetus") is a chemical released by a cell in one part of the body, that sends out messages that affect cells in other parts of the organism. Only a small amount of hormone is required to alter cell metabolism. It is essentially a chemical messenger that transports a signal from one cell to another. All multicellular organisms produce hormones; plant hormones are also called phytohormones.
Hormones in animals are often transported in the blood. Cells respond to a hormone when they express a specific receptor for that hormone. The hormone binds to the receptor protein, resulting in the activation of a signal transduction mechanism that ultimately leads to cell type-specific responses.

Fill in those symptoms you are currently experiencing to see if they are associated either with a deficiency or excess of specific hormones.
The series of self-tests assess your level of each of the fifteen most important hormones. (of course, you'll need to conform these result with some lab tests before beginning any king of treatment.)
