Hormone Profiling (Advanced Body Fat Analysis)
People come in all shapes and sizes. We have all come to appreciate the unique appearance of individuals. It is actually pretty amazing to think that of the close to 7 billion people on the planet, not one is physically identical. Even twins can vary in shape, behavior, likes and dislikes, etc.
The fact is we are as different on the inside as we are on the outside. We each have a unique biochemistry that sets us apart from everyone else. While we all undoubtedly share common traits and overlapping metabolic tendencies, to assume we will all derive equal benefit from the same diet is a very short-sighted.
Hormones not only tell the body how to use the fuel it consumes, but they also may be playing a role in where on the body fat is stored. This is a complicated and controversial matter, and we caution you not to think of hormones in an all-or-nothing fashion. Hormones behave differently depending on their ratios with other hormones. It is impossible to know the effects of one hormone without understanding the impact of others. The reason so many people have stubborn problems areas are due to imbalances in their body biochemistry, especially with hormones.
Your body fat levels and corresponding imbalanced hormones can be improved and effectively managed through a combination of diet, exercise, a targeted supplementation program and lifestyle modifications.
This assessment takes approximately 30-45 minutes. It entails taking body fat measurements from 13 sites on the body with Harpenden calipers.
Although there are many other methods to test body fat, such as underwater weighing and electrical impedance, we believe that body fat testing with skin calipers is the best method to be used for body fat analysis because it can determine precisely the amount of fat in each of the major fat-testing sites where other testing methods only tell you your overall body fat.
We then take time to analyse the results and research the best plan to get you optimal results and any imbalanced hormones back on track.
