In a perfect world, the master stress hormone cortisol should be in sync with the master sleep hormone melatonin. Each hormone counter-balances the other in a precise rhythm – when cortisol is high melatonin should be low, and when melatonin is high cortisol should be low. For many people, this rhythm is out of balance.
This sleep-wake cycle testing reveals whether hormones are your hidden barrier to restful sleep. It measures cortisol and melatonin in dried urine at 4 time points – providing a true 24-hour sleep-wake pattern.
