Hormone Tests

Hormone Tests

At LifeWorks Wellness Center we offer a number of tests which provide your healthcare practitioner with a full analysis of your hormone levels.

Flexitest

A saliva test that allows us to customize your specific hormonal testing. It includes a complete adrenal (cortisol and DHEA) profile with the hormone evaluation.

The Estronex 2/16 Test

The Estronex 2/16 Test is a measurement of these two important forms of estrogen: 2-OHE1 (the ‘good’ estrogen) and 16-a-OHE1 (the ‘bad’ estrogen). The ratio of ‘good to bad’ estrogen is determined from a single urine specimen. Studies have shown that women with low Estronex 2/16 ratios have much higher rates of breast cancer. Low Estronex 2/16 ratios also indicate increased long-term risk for other estrogen-sensitive cancers, including uterine, ovarian, cervical and even head and neck cancers.

Dr. Minkoff

About Dr. Minkoff

In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established LifeWorks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
