Hormone and Fertility Profile
Welcome to Therapy Works. You can find our integrated health clinic at Suite 3b/367 Barrenjoey Rd Newport NSW 2106. We offer a range of clinical testing services: Mood and cognition profiling, nutrigenomic profiles, detoxification profiles and hormone and fertility profiles.
Hormones are important for a wide range of bodily functions. Hormonal imbalances may contribute to certain health concerns that affect fertility, pregnancy and overall health in general. Having a greater understanding of key genetic influences can be important for supporting hormonal health, addressing systemic health concerns and developing holistic preconception care plans to prepared the body for pregnancy, birth and beyond.
What do test results mean?
The Hormone and Fertility Profile can help reveal underlying influences affecting endocrine and reproductive health issues. Pregnancy health can be optimised by identifying the right nutrients according to your genetic profile.
