Note: I was paid to write this post, however I only work with companies I trust enough to endorse and believe would be of great value to my readers.
I recently had the opportunity to get my hormones and adrenals tested through lab work from a company called Pure Prescriptions. When I was first asked if I was interested in getting lab work done, my response was, “Heck yes! Bring it!”
You see, for the past year and a half, I have been working hard to heal my hormones through diet and lifestyle changes. I suffered with major PMS and ovarian cysts ever since I was a teenager. Even though many think PMS is just a normal part of being a woman, nothing could be further from the truth! Did you know that having PMS symptoms is one of the telltale signs that you have a hormonal imbalance?
And when your hormones are out of whack, it can create a real mess in your life! Moodiness, unable to handle stress, inability to lose weight, insomnia, and lack of energy are just a few of the unpleasant symptoms when your hormones are not balanced properly.
So while my diet and lifestyle changes completely eliminated the hormone imbalance symptoms for me (woo!), I couldn’t wait to see if my Pure Prescriptions lab work would confirm my results.
How Lab Testing Works
I first had a phone consultation with Dr. Chad from Pure Prescriptions, who was awesome. Then my lab testing kit was mailed to me. It was just simple salvia tests that I had to take at certain times during the day. After my samples were taken, I sent the kit back and a few days later my results (with really cool charts!) were emailed to me. And lastly, I had another consultation over the phone with Dr. Chad to go over my results. Can I take a moment to say just how refreshing it is to speak to a doctor who completely gets it?! And not to mention, I didn’t have to leave my home or wait in a crowded doctor’s office (double woo!!).
Even though my lab work results came back all in the normal ranges (that’s a reason for another woo!), there were 2 areas that looked like they could use a boost just to get my numbers at more optimal levels. He recommended that I tweak my diet just a little and he also put me on 2 Pure Prescriptions supplements to take for just 3 months. I kid you not, within the first day of following his diet advice and taking the supplements, I gained some major energy! It’s now been a few weeks later and I’m absolutely loving the changes I’m seeing. I feel like it was just the tweak my body needed to run at a more optimal level. A huge thank you and shout out to Dr. Chad over at Pure Prescriptions!
If you are experiencing symptoms of a hormonal imbalance or are sick of being sick and tired and want to get to the bottom of it, I encourage you to look into getting some lab work done and to speak to a holistic doctor like Dr. Chad who can work with you to get to the root of the problem. Covering your symptoms up with prescription medications is not the answer and almost always leads to more problems (and even more prescriptions!) down the road.
There are many different lab tests Pure Prescriptions offers for every health concern:
- Hormones for both men and women
- Gluten and Food Allergies
- Adrenal Health
- ….and more!
