Michael Smith
Hi, my name is Michael Smith, ND BHSC and Head Practitioner at Planet Naturopath.

While I don’t know the exact reason you’re interested in doing the DUTCH hormone test, I do know you’re searching for answers.

Whether that means looking for natural solutions to chronic health problems, finding out the cause of your fatigue, eliminating hormone symptoms, or just wanting to optimize your health. 

If you want to find those answers, I can tell you the best way to start… is with testing.

But not just any old test. Doctors only offer basic pathology tests, and often these tests come back showing that “everything is fine”, yet you feel far from feeling great.

Our DUTCH hormone test, on the other hand, looks at a wider range of hormones, as well as assessing how your body is metabolizing and detoxifying these hormones, this is important for overall health and reducing cancer risk.

But what makes the DUTCH Test from Planet Naturopath invaluable, is what happens after you get your results. With our 60 minute in-depth one on one consultation, I’ll explain what your results actually mean to you, your health, and your body.

This is the fun part for me, because as Head Practitioner I enjoy doing all the consultations with our clients. My passion is helping people find natural solutions to optimize their health.

I’ll give you the complete details how the consultations work and how they can benefit you, but let’s start with:

How does the DUTCH test process work?

When you order your DUTCH test – you’ll receive your kit with easy to follow instructions that you can administer in the privacy of your own home.

DUTCH or Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones – uses a special litmus paper to collect your urine samples. You provide 4-5 samples. Let them dry overnight. Then they’re ready to ship back to the lab for processing.

The DUTCH test is the most advanced and comprehensive hormone test on the market because it measures your hormones and hormone metabolites (called conjugates) which also measure hormone production and hormone breakdown.

The DUTCH test measures these hormones and metabolites:

  • arrow-circle-o-right
    Total metabolized cortisol – this shows you how much cortisol your body is making over the entire day and can be very different to the free cortisol level. The amount of cortisol you are producing will help to guide your treatment plan.
  • arrow-circle-o-right
    Total cortisone – tells us how quickly your body is deactivating cortisol to cortisone
  • arrow-circle-o-right
    Free cortisol – this shows you the active levels of cortisol in your body, the level and rhythm of free cortisol will help to guide your treatment plan.
  • arrow-circle-o-right
    Free cortisone – plus the metabolites of cortisone to show how quickly cortisol is getting deactivated to cortisone, this will help to guide us on the best treatment strategy for you
  • arrow-circle-o-right
    Tetrahyrdocortisone – this is a metabolite of cortisone
    a-tetrahydrocortisol –
    this is a metabolite of cortisol
    b-tetrahydrocortisol –
    this is a metabolite of cortisol
  • arrow-circle-o-right
    DHEAs – is a precursor to testosterone and estrogen, a high level can indicate PCOS and inflammation, a low level can indicate adrenal insufficiency
  • arrow-circle-o-right
    Testosterone – there is an optimal range for men and women which is associated with vitality and wellbeing, low levels can affect mood, fertility, libido and athletic performance.
  • arrow-circle-o-right
    Progesterone metabolites – (a-pregnanediol, b-pregnanediol) will indicate your total progesterone levels, these are also precursors to make the neurotransmitter GABA. Low progesterone levels can lead to PMS symptoms and infertility
  • arrow-circle-o-right
    Androgen metabolites of DHEAS and Testosterone – this is important to assess how well your body is processing testosterone, if it is metabolized down the 5a-DHT pathway this can cause hair loss, skin problems, aggression and even increase prostate cancer risk in men.
  • arrow-circle-o-right
    Estrogens – which includes estrone, estradiol, estriol, the balance between estrogen and progesterone is important for fertility, PMS and menopausal symptoms
  • arrow-circle-o-right
    Estrogen metabolites – these metabolites show how your body is detoxifying estrogen and if this is not done correctly it can increase your risk of breast cancer, prostate cancer, cysts and fibroids.
  • arrow-circle-o-right
    6-OH-melatonin-sulfate – which assesses melatonin production, low melatonin can affect sleep quality making it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep. Melatonin also has antioxidant affects which can help to protect the brain and improve mood.

    Just added to the DUTCH test are markers for neurotransmitters, B12, B6 and glutathione

What Our Patients Have to Say

I would recommend Michael's service to anyone with digestive issues, hormone imbalances (including women who are having a terrible time of peri/menopause symptoms), unexplained or sudden weight gain, and health associated anxiety. These were all my symptoms. Under Michael's expert and precise, compassionate and thoughtful guidance, I have been able to regain a normal life again.

Everyone thought I had a thyroid problem because high estrogen shares the same symptoms as hypothyroidism. I hardly ate anything unnatural or highly inflammatory and kept my calories at 1400 daily plus did HIT training, strength based training and moderate exercise too like walking and yoga. I took the recommended supplements and great news, I'm now down to 69kgs in a few months of doing EXACTLY what you suggested.
