Hair Drug Testing

August 11th, 2010 by admin

Employers who use drug/alcohol test screenings on their employees are now more commonly turning to hair drug testing  and using the hair test rather than the urine, blood or saliva test.  Why?  Because there is a longer time frame for detection and the tests are very accurate. 

 

Illicit drugs such as cocaine, heroin, marijuana, prescription drugs, and many others can be detected in hair for several months and even years in people with longer hair.  Hair usually grows 1cm per month so a 3cm sample will provide a 3 month history.  Collecting the hair sample is painless and non-invasive,  unlike a blood test.

 

The courts are also requesting this method more frequently as test results are being upheld in court.  Parents who are concerned about their child’s possible drug use will find that hair drug testing at home is easy and very convenient.  Hair drug test kits (as well as drug and alcohol home tests) can be ordered online and done in the privacy of your own home. 

 

One of the disadvantages of hair drug testing is that the results from do take longer than the other methods – usually one week and up to ten days – but the accuracy and depth of information resulting is much greater and therefore a better indicator of drug or alcohol use over the longer term.

What are some of the signs that you are beginning Menopause?

September 28th, 2009 by admin

I’ve always been a 28-day-cycle girl  – you could set your clock by my period. But now it can be 25 days or 23 days and then back to 28 days. I am 46 so could this be a sign that I am beginning menopause?


Menopause is the transition period in a woman’s life when her ovaries stop producing eggs, her body produces less estrogen and progesterone, and menstruation becomes less frequent, eventually stopping altogether.

Menopause is a natural event that normally occurs between the ages of 45 and 55. Once menopause is complete (called postmenopause), you can no longer become pregnant. The symptoms of menopause are caused by changes in estrogen and progesterone levels. As the ovaries become less functional, they produce less of these hormones and the body responds accordingly.

The specific symptoms you experience and how significant (mild, moderate, or severe) varies from woman to woman. In some women, menstrual flow comes to a sudden halt. More commonly, it tapers off. During this time, your menstrual periods generally become either more closely or more widely spaced. This irregularity may last for 1 to 3 years before menstruation finally ends completely.

A gradual decrease of estrogen generally allows your body to slowly adjust to the hormonal changes. When estrogen drops suddenly, as is seen when the ovaries are removed surgically (called surgical menopause), symptoms can be more severe. Because hormone levels fall, changes occur in the entire female reproductive system. The vaginal walls become less elastic and thinner. The vagina becomes shorter. Lubricating secretions from the vagina become watery. The outside genital tissue decreases. This is called atrophy of the labia.

Symptoms : The potential symptoms include: – Hot flashes and skin flushing – Night sweats – Insomnia – Mood swings including irritability, depression, and anxiety – Irregular menstrual periods – Spotting of blood in between periods – Vaginal dryness and painful sexual intercourse – Decreased sex drive – Vaginal infections – Urinary tract infections In addition, the long-term effects of menopause include: – Bone loss and eventual osteoporosis – Changes in cholesterol levels and greater risk of heart disease.

 

To find out if you have a HORMONE IMBALANCE or are beginning to enter into MENOPAUSE get your very own home testing medical kit.  Fast results, confidential and done at your convenience in the privacy of your own home. Very simple SALIVA Test kit!
