The dosing of hormones is important. We aim for physiological levels (what your body would naturally make). Too much or too little hormones can cause symptoms. Monitoring your hormones regularly is important to keep you within physiological doses and give you the greatest benefits. Your Naturopathic Doctor will discuss the hormone testing schedule best for you.
