Embracing Health

My doctor told me that my symptoms were “all in my head” and prescribed me anti-depressant medication – but I knew there was something drastically wrong with my hormones, and now I have the proof! Introducing…

“The Incredibly Simple, Non-Invasive Saliva Test That Measures Your Own Personal Hormone Balance With Pinpoint Accuracy”

  • Are you like hundreds of patients who go to the doctor with a long list of symptoms and leave feeling like you’ve not been heard?
  • Have you been patronised and dismissed by a doctor who doesn’t take your symptoms seriously?
  • Have you been told “it’s all in your head”, “you just need to eat less and exercise more”, “there is nothing wrong with you, your blood tests are fine”, or even worse“you are a neurotic middle-aged woman who just needs to get a life?”

Dear Ladies,

I’ve heard these stories and many more from patient after patient who are all frustrated, upset and angry with not being able to find answers to their health concerns.

They have searched, they have tried different doctors and different treatments, they have seen specialists, they have had all the standard tests, and they have come up empty handed. These ladies are fed up with not being able to get the help they need and feel they are being treated like a number who cannot interpret their own body’s signs and symptoms.

Women’s hormones are a complex and intricate balance which shifts and changes throughout our lives. When something disrupts this delicate balance – such as stress, becoming a mother, or entering menopause – we can suffer with physical and emotional symptoms that impact every aspect of our lives.

Regaining our health depends on being able to uncover what is really going on with our hormones…

Now, imagine that there was an affordable test available that gave you more information on your hormones than you could ever imagine!

Once you had this powerful knowledge in your own hands, you may never have to visit your doctor again!

“I can’t thank you enough Leisa for your advice and help. It would be so amazing for me to get my health in top top shape again. Getting to the cause of it all is a breath of fresh air. It is such a relief, and I feel very confident now I am on the road to recovery. Thank you so much for your time and expertise. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your immense kindness.”

A.N. Melbourne

Imagine if this test was one that was simple, non-invasive, and affordable; one that you could do in as little as 4 x 5 minutes throughout the day in the comfort and privacy of your own home.

A test that with the latest technological analysis that science has to offer, could provide you with incredible accuracy, your very own personalised blueprint of the status of your health.

Imagine a test that could evaluate your available energy, metabolism, thyroid, cancer risks, liver, digestive system, libido, mood, weight problems, menopausal symptoms and could even give you information on how to prevent problems before they occur.

That sounds like something too good to be true doesn’t it? Something you might wish your doctor had told you about?

Well I’m about to tell you that there IS such a test…

But Let’s Back Up A Bit First…

Many women (and men) today are suffering.

And their doctor is not able to tell them why.

I hear from so many people that they are just exhausted, there isn’t much joy in life anymore, they are feeling more irritable and more depressed than they ever have been.

The weight just keeps piling on and no diet seems to make a difference, they are looking older, their skin doesn’t have a glow anymore, their hair is thinning and falling out, and as for sex, who could be bothered?

Well Let Me Tell You, It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way!


Not only are many people suffering from below average health, there is also an army of what are called “the worried well”, a large portion of the population that are not suffering now, but live in fear of what might be on the way.

Most of us know someone who seemed quite healthy on the outside, but the next thing you know they are struck down with cancer, or they have a heart attack out of the blue. Or there is a disease in the family that many have seen their loved ones suffer with, and they would do ANYTHING to avoid going down that same path.

What if I reminded you that knowledge is power, and the more information you have, the more that you can do to protect your most precious asset – your health?

So now back to this test… Am I talking about some new-fangled, space age, never been proven, leave your brain at the door type of gimmicky test?

No, Absolutely Not!

This type of testing has been around for more than 20 years, it is based on leading edge science, and was approved by the World Health Organisation in the 1990’s, calling it “accurate, convenient and non-invasive”. If your doctor bothered to look, he would also find that there are more than 2500 scientific papers noting this type of testing.

I am talking about nothing other than… Saliva Hormone Testing.

“Taking your advice on the Saliva Hormone Tests has certainly been most beneficial. When I received your report explaining the results in such a VERY understandable language for each hormone, I was thrilled. Nobody has ever explained tests like this before, and what I could take to improve my health.”

S.B. Cairns


This simple test means that from a sample of your saliva, a precise measurement can be taken of your biologically active hormones, and with an expert interpretation of the results, you can have in your hands one of the most powerful pieces of information you may have ever had on your health.

Saliva is considered to be equivalent to “tissue” in your body, and by spitting into special collection tubes supplied by the laboratory, four times during the day and evening, we have an easy way to measure the effect your hormones are having on your body.

Why are hormones so important?“, you might ask…

Why Are Hormones Important?

Hormones are chemical substances produced by our body that are absolutely vital to our good health, and their importance is often overlooked by the medical profession. Without balanced hormones, nothing feels like it is working right.

Areas such as our physical development, fertility, libido, metabolism, stress responses, immunity, aging and sleep are all governed by our hormones.

Through many factors found in today’s lifestyle such as chemical pollutants, processed food, increasing stress and the reliance on pharmaceutical medications, we often find that our hormones are not working in the way that they should, and our quality of health declines as a result.

Because our hormones play such a large role in our well-being, any chronic illness or poor level of health may have an hormonal imbalance as a factor. Saliva hormone testing can pick up the underlying hormonal imbalances in many regular disorders:

Do You Suffer From Any of These Hormone Related Problems?

  • Pre-menstrual tension
  • Irregular or heavy menstrual cycles
  • Infertility
  • Fibrocystic breast disease
  • Uterine Fibroids
  • Weight gain
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Hot flushes
  • Family history of breast cancer


More Accurate Than Blood Testing?

Many doctor’s and naturopath’s find Saliva Hormone Testing more accurate than blood testing for very simple reasons. Hormones in saliva are called free or “active” hormones and this is a measurement of the levels of hormones that your body is actually using.

Blood tests however, measure both active and inactive hormone all lumped in together, which can give you a VERY different reading when it comes to the effect hormones are having in your body.

Another reason Saliva Tests are preferred is because of the way you can test them multiple times throughout the day to cover normal daily variations.

Cortisol, one of your adrenal hormones that helps you to cope with stress, has a daily pattern where it is highest of a morning, and gradually declines during the day until it is almost gone by night time. When we do a Saliva Test for cortisol levels, we test it four times during the day and night to establish what type of pattern your cortisol is making.


Can you imagine subjecting yourself to four blood tests during the one day to accurately measure your vitally important cortisol levels?


Here is a graph of a saliva test of a patient with a normal cortisol level, compared with a test of a patient with chronic fatigue:

Here is the Saliva Test result of that patient suffering from chronic fatigue:



See how the level is very low in the morning and drops even further by lunch time? This is such an important hormone to know about, but most doctor’s would never even think to order such a comprehensive test.

Are You Stressing Out Yet?

Because cortisol is a stress hormone, and many people find blood tests a very stressful event, blood tests for this hormone can show a very inaccurate reading as levels can rise due purely to the anxiety of having blood taken!

Even when we are in a fatigued or exhausted state we may have enough cortisol to react to a stressful event, but not enough to feel energetic on a normal daily basis.

We can measure these subtle differences – and much more – perfectly with saliva testing.

Hormones Can Be Dangerous…

Another area where Saliva Tests win hands down over blood tests, is in the testing of oestrogen levels.


Oestrogen is a very important hormone and it can be both protective and healthy, or cancer causing and dangerous.

It is the type of oestrogen that is important here, and with Saliva Testing, we look at three different types of oestrogen and evaluate not just their individual levels, but the ratios of one to the other which can mean the difference between health or hazard.


Has your doctor ever suggested testing for ALL the different types of oestrogen to see if you are at risk?

No? I didn’t think so.

Oestrone is one type of oestrogen that has been linked with fibrocystic breasts, uterine fibroids, endometrial growth, cancerous tumours and in men, prostate cancer. It is one hormone that you DON’T want to have too much of.

Here is a test result showing all three types of oestrogen and a high oestrone reading.


Ask Yourself These Questions:

  • Have you gained weight mainly around the middle section?
  • Do you have unsightly rolls of excess weight under your bra strap, or
  • If you are a man do you have a large “beer belly”?

This can often be a sign of oestrogen dominance, and it can be a danger sign for cancer.

(join my Embracing Health Membership Club for an in-depth look at oestrogen dominance in Module #2)

Why not heed the warning and find out what your oestrogen levels are?

Is This Hormone the Fountain of Youth?

Progesterone is another important hormone that we test for and is the hormone that falls drastically after menopause, much more than oestrogen does.

That is because progesterone is our fertility hormone, during the first half of our menstrual cycle, days 1 to 14 we have oestrogen at it’s highest level building the lining of the uterus. Then we produce an egg during ovulation, and the follicle the egg bursts out of produces the hormone progesterone to create an environment where a fertilised egg can be nourished. If we do not fall pregnant however, progesterone levels drop and a menstrual period is initiated.

In menopause of course, we stop ovulating and therefore stop producing progesterone.

In a healthy state we are meant to produce some progesterone from our adrenal glands, but if they are exhausted, then we are likely to produce very little.

And what woman, by menopause, is not exhausted? After career, marriage, children, family, finances, house etc. most women have very little energy left at this time of their lives.

Progesterone is one of our primary anti-aging hormones, it can help:

  • Protect against oesteoporosis,
  • Prevent cardiovascular problems,
  • Increase energy and well-being
  • Reverse menopausal symptoms such as hot flushing and
  • Balance those mood swings that make you feel like you’re going crazy!

If you find out through Saliva Hormone Testing that you are too low in progesterone, then it is simple to either balance using herbal medicine or replace with a low dose bio-identical cream – you don’t have to just “live with it!”

As well as the hormones we’ve already discussed, in a comprehensive Saliva Hormone Test, we also look at DHEA, another primary anti-aging hormone, and testosterone (ladies, is that dark hair on your upper lip getting more noticeable? Men, is your libido less than it used to be?).


Testimonials From Some VERY Satisfied Clients

Genuine Comments:

“When I turned 60 I did a full health assessment with my doctor to make sure that I was doing everything possible to prevent the breast cancer that tragically claimed my mother and my sister. When I asked the doctor about my hormone levels and if they needed to be checked, he did some basic blood tests and said that everything was fine.

I wasn’t content to leave it there and decided to search for alternative methods of detecting imbalances before they became serious – I knew that doctor’s only jumped to attention when a health problem became obvious, but I wanted to PREVENT a problem and optimise my health, not wait for a tumour to grow before I did anything about it.

When I met Leisa and found out about saliva hormone testing, I was thrilled that this simple method of diagnosis might be able to pinpoint hormonal problems BEFORE they became dangerous. I did the tests and they showed that my “bad” oestrogen was too high and my “good” oestrogen was too low – and high levels of “bad” oestrogen may be implicated in breast cancer! All I had to do was take a common nutritional supplement to help my body change the bad oestrogen into good.

What I loved was how this whole process was explained in Leisa’s report, it was so clear to understand and it put me back in charge of my own health. From her analysis of the results, Leisa also suggested further blood tests to check for nutrient deficiencies, and sure enough I was so low in a certain vitamin that is well known as a cancer preventative, that it was off the chart!

I have so much more peace of mind knowing that I have found some answers to the questions that I had about whether there were alternative ways of detecting problems before they became diseases.

I am so thankful that we found out about the high oestrone levels now, so that I can do what I can to try and prevent cancer and live a long happy life with the very best of health!”

J.L. Brisbane


“I received your report on Wednesday and have finally sat and read it and then re-read it again and again! I am shocked but not, I knew I was not good but always thought it was in my head?? However I am so grateful to you that I can actually undertand what is going on now with me.

To tell you the truth Leisa I thought I was a complete nut case all these years, I thought I was just getting worse and that there was absolutely nothing I could do about the problems I am having and feeling.

Over the years I have read numerous books on hormones, but could never understand the complete picture properly or find anyone who could simply explain it to me as you have just done. I am sitting here sobbing my heart out with absolute relief that I am not a nut case and that just one day maybe I will feel as I am supposed to feel and be.

Thank you Leisa for giving me renewed hope.”

C.S. Melbourne


“I just wanted to give you an update on my health given that you were instrumental in getting me started on a “new path to recovery”.

In short I am feeling much, much better.

My period is still about 7-9 days but I only have one heavy day which is such a change from the horrendous regime I was experiencing before. So, thanks again for your help.”

P.M. Sydney

Ok, now that you know this type of test is available, and we’ve touched on a just a small part of the enormous amount of information it can give you about your health, the next thing is how you go about ordering it for yourself, so you too, can benefit from the quality data it provides.

Order This From Your Doctor?

One very important thing you need to be aware of is that although your local doctor or naturopath can probably order this test for you – they are not likely to be able to interpret the results for you properly. You may end up with a pretty coloured report in your hand, with numbers on it that mean nothing to you, and probably mean next to nothing to your doctor either.

What you want is someone who has analysed hundreds of these tests, and is so experienced with understanding the health implications and patterns found in the numbers, that she is in demand from doctors and naturopaths around the country to teach them how to properly interpret the results.

And that person is me.

I have analysed hundreds of these reports for patients personally, and I have studied hormonal health vigorously, reading hundreds of books, attending intensive hormone related seminars such as the International Hormone Conference, and studied the relationship between imbalanced hormone levels and all the different health disorders that can come from that.

Recently, I was hired by Healthscope Laboratories (previously ARL Functional Pathology) to lecture to doctors and naturopaths around the country and present them with expert tuition on the understanding, interpretation and analysis of the Saliva Hormone Test results, and how to apply that knowledge to develop strategies for healing.

Not only that, as an experienced naturopath running cutting edge detox & health retreats, I can guide you through the many options available to people to balance their hormones naturally.

It’s not enough to just have access to information – you need to know what that information means. Without the right analysis, your tests could be a total waste of time, effort and money.

And if you need extra help, I can direct you towards doctors who specialise in bio-identical hormone replacement which offers a safer alternative to pharmaceutical HRT.

By now you must be wondering… How do I do this?

How Do I Get My Tests Done?

I have a special offer for readers of this site. When you order a complete set of Saliva Hormone Tests through this site, I will personally analyse your results and provide you with a comprehensive 20-25 page report explaining your individual results, what they mean for your health, and suggestions about how to recover your health through balancing your hormones. In addition to that you will also receive a complimentary 15 minute phone consultation with the Embracing Health Naturopath to explain your results and answer any questions you may have.

I will also suggest further testing, such as blood tests, urine analysis, liver function or stool testing if I feel they are appropriate, and provide you with everything that you need to know, to take control of your own health.  If you want to continue naturopathic support with us we also offer discounts on those for people who have had this test done.

You Will Simply Not Find This Type Of Personalised Service Anywhere Else!

Your doctor certainly won’t put the time and energy into educating you about your health, your naturopath probably hasn’t specialised in hormones, and if you do find someone knowledgeable about these tests, they are probably booked up way in advance, cost hundreds of dollars to see, and don’t have the time to answer all your questions.

My report takes you step by step through your results and your half hour review will ensure you will have all the information you need. Your report is laid out in an easy to understand, straightforward way that answers your questions as we go, but remember our naturopath is also there for further clarification, if need be. We help you to recognise why you feel the way you do, and what simple steps you can take to improve your health.

If you are finally ready to get some REAL answers, then here is what you do:

When you click on the order button below, you will be taken to a page where you enter your details to order your Saliva Hormone Test Kit which includes my Comprehensive Analysis of your results and your 15 minute phone consultation.

Remember not to exit the site after you have paid as you will be automatically taken to a  page to fill in a short questionnaire which will give me more information about your health concerns.

Once you finish ordering the tests online, within a couple of days you will receive the test kit at your home address. Full instructions on how to do the test can be downloaded from the Thank You page once you have gone through the order process and questionnaire.


Once you have completed the samples, they are sent back to Healthscope in the envelope that is provided, and it takes about two to three weeks for them to process your tests. Then I receive your results and depending on the volume of tests I have to analyse, you will receive your full PDF report within one to two weeks after that. So the full process is most likely to take 3-6 weeks.


It’s That Easy To Get The Most In Depth,
Personalised Report On Your Health That You Have Ever Had!

Now that you know exactly how to obtain this essential information, the rest is entirely up to you.

You basically have 3 choices:

  • You could do nothing right now, but at least you have the knowledge that this type of testing is available and if you do get sick, you can then kick yourself for not doing something that could have prevented your illness. Or maybe you could keep doing the rounds of doctors, specialists, endocrinologists and naturopath’s – spending thousands of dollars and having test after useless test that gets you nowhere.

Or maybe…

  • You can go to your local doctor and get them to order the saliva test kit for you and you will get some results, but you won’t know what to do with them.

If you choose any of those options, let’s at least part as friends and let me give you some free health information that will keep us in touch, and you can still benefit from my health tips and principles. (See below)


  • You can click on the order button below and do what it takes to look after number one, and receive your own personalised, individual report, as well as your 15 minute review that could have far reaching implications for your health for the rest of your life. So now my question to you is….
