Dr. Bonnett believes that clients get better results if they understand the science behind the therapies they are using. Educational classes allow clients to learn in a relaxed group setting…and eliminate the need for more expensive one-on-one consultations.
Many functional medicine specialists believe that the most accurate way to measure hormones is in saliva. Saliva levels closely correlate with tissue levels of hormones, while blood levels may be very different than tissue levels and can lead to incorrect dosing of hormones.. Saliva testing is also more convenient, less painful, and less expensive than blood testing. ZRT Laboratories has more than 20 decades of providing excellent lab testing along with education for patients and providers.
Since many hormonal imbalances have common causes and many people have similar issues, the majority of women will be able to attend a group class to learn about hormones and order a saliva test, and then return for a second class to get their results, along with an individualized treatment plan that has been reviewed by Dr. Bonnett. If someone is unable to attend a class or wishes to work exclusively one-on-one with Dr. Bonnett, either in person or via a Telehealth consulting service, then that can be determined after a discussion with Dr. Bonnett
