Hormone Imbalances 

Hormone imbalances can contribute to several conditions including menstrual problems, mental wellbeing, weight gain, menopausal symptoms, insomnia, stress, headaches, low libido and more. Your symptoms are often enough for Angela to get a sense of your hormonal balance, however in some cases Angela may order particular hormone tests to elicit more information. In some cases blood tests may suffice, however saliva tests will give a more accurate indication of bioavailable hormone:

  • Female Hormone Saliva Screen (Includes progesterone, oestradiol, testosterone, DHEA).
  • Male Hormone Saliva Screen (Includes testosterone, oestradiol, DHEA).
  • Adrenocortex Stress Profile – cortisol & DHEA (3 saliva samples, 8am, 4pm, 8pm)
  • Sleep Hormone Cycle Saliva Screen – cortisol & melatonin (2 saliva samples, midnight, 2am)



From 1 June 2020 Angela will be consulting from a new peaceful clinic space in Bellevue, Tauranga, and will now longer be operating from Huckleberry Wild Herbs.  Angela will still be offering a full herbal dispensary for all new scripts and refills, plus access to practitioner only product lines such as Metagenics, MediHerb, Orthoplex, Eagle, Gaia and more.  

Post Covid-19 crisis: To assist with health care costs Angela is offering 15% discount on all new scripts/refills between 1 June-1 July.  

Digital consults: Remote bookings are available for those who are unwell or unable to attend face-to-face consults.  Digital consults are discounted by 15% as some diagnostic tests are not possible remotely.
