When everything is performing well, our hormone function will be quite harmonious. Yet sometimes our hormones can get out of whack, consequently causing a multitude of unwanted side effects.

so why use the dutch test?
Standard blood tests for hormones can only offer a snap shot of the particular moment bloods are drawn, whereas urinary hormone profiles collected at different times of the day gives us a true picture of the overall orchestration of hormonal activity. Reproductive hormonal issues are often interwoven with stress hormone imbalances, hence this package utilises the DUTCH test, which offers a full insight to both of these areas.
The ‘JCN Happy Hormones Package’ is a personalised program using individual results from DUTCH test profiling.
