In today’s blog, I’m going to reveal what your options are when you want to get your hormones checked, but your doctor won’t do it for you?
Getting your hormones checked is super critical if you want to cure your hormonal acne because you can’t rebalance your hormones if you don’t know what hormones are out of balance.
Seems pretty straightforward, doesn’t it?
You would think so, but it’s often not a view shared by your doctor. But testing allows you to pinpoint what hormones are out of balance so you know…
Do you have high testosterone?
Do you have high or low cortisol?
Do you have low progesterone?
Or is your estrogen high or low?
It’s critical to know which of these hormones are not where they should be, so you can get them back into balance, reduce oil production and clear up your acne.
Another super important reason why you need to get your hormones checked is because it stops you guessing at what supplements you need.
Whenever a new young woman comes to see me for help to clear up her acne naturally, she’ll already be taking supplements. But the supplements she’s taking are obviously not working because her acne is still there. The supplements aren’t working because while the young woman might have a little bit of an idea of what’s causing her acne, she doesn’t really know because she hasn’t had her hormones checked and she’s picked the wrong supplements.
So, pretty much she’s wasting money on supplements she doesn’t really need.
However, when you get your hormones checked you find out exactly what hormones you have out of balance and so then you can design an individualized supplement program to rebalance your hormones and give yourself picture perfect skin. So to repeat, it’s super critical that you get your hormones checked.
As important as checking your hormone levels are it unfortunately seems most doctors won’t do it for you. so why is this?
One of the main reasons I feel that the doctors don’t want to check your hormones is because they’re lazy. They don’t want to do it.
And two, they don’t think it’s important. This is because they already know what they’re going to prescribe you. In their mind, when you come in and they look at you and you’ve got acne along your jaw, or on your neck, or on your chin, or around your mouth, or maybe some on your body, they know the acne is hormonal. So straight away in their mind, they think “I’m going to use the birth control pill”. Then when you ask them, “oh, can I get my hormones checked?” they’re like, “Nope. We don’t need to do that”.
They know what they’re going to do. They’re going to use birth control.
And this is despite the fact you’ve asked to get your hormones checked because you DON’T want to use a birth control pill, or any other medications. You want to find out how you can cure your acne issues naturally. You understand you need to know your hormone levels and so you need to get them checked.
But because the doctors don’t really believe in treating things naturally, they just want to put you on the pill, or they want to put you on Accutane or Roaccutane, or they want to use antibiotics, or they might want to use all of these.
And so, they just don’t believe there’s any need to check your hormones, because the treatments they’re going to give to you don’t require them to know exactly what your hormone levels are like.
However, when you want to treat acne naturally, you do need to know what your hormone levels are because what you will use depends on what hormones are out of balance. Your specific hormone imbalances determine what supplements you’ll use. And so, to choose the right supplements, you need to know what hormone imbalances you have.
So then what do you do if your doctor won’t check your hormones for you?
