Rhythm is a comprehensive assessment of the female hormones, oestradiol, progesterone and testosterone spanning a full cycle period. Imbalances revealed in this profile can help illuminate root causes of disorders such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS), infertility, and menstrual irregularities.

Balance is the key. Research has long shown that fluctuating levels of oestogen, progesterone and testosterone play a major role in a woman’s overall health, effecting

  • Menstrual Cycle
  • Appetite Level
  • Mood Swings
  • Sex Drive
  • Sleep Patterns

Imbalances of these hormones are associated with disorders such as

  • PMS
  • Breast Cancer
  • Anovulation
  • Endometriosis
  • Infertility
  • Polycystic Ovary Disease
  • Amenorrhea
  • Osteoporosis

Rhythm Plus

As well as measuring the hormones Oestrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone discussed above rhythm plus also measures melatonin and the adrenal hormones, Cortisol and DHEA and is designed to show these are influenced by the sex hormones and vica versa.

The hormone Melatonin is the major modulator of annual and circadian biorhythms in the body. Abnormalities have been closely linked to a variety of behavioural changes and mood disorders including: female hormone disturbance, insomnia, sleep-wake problems, mood disturbance, increased risk of cardiovascular disease, immune dysfunction, inhibition of ovulation and low body temperature.
