There are no clear markers. From my approach and my experience all those years, for me it’s 50% or even more the report of the feelings that the woman has and 50% and the blood tests are mainly to confirm that there is an imbalance because I do have the feeling, the immune system is as we know, I have autoimmune problems so, I have studied a lot of things to myself. Changes like this happen very fast so, when we have those changes then, it’s very difficult to measure. it very very difficult so, for example, what we know what I have observed actually that the immune system gets more angry at night. That’s something which is very characteristic and for some reason during night I can see more expressions of a strong immune system rather than during the day, for example, when we have a mild viral infection, many people tend to get sweaty during the night. Having like a, for me it’s like a war, this is actually when the big part of the work happens and then the next day the body calms down and it’s back to normal and has dealt with this problem. So, imagine in those hours how many different measurements you can have when you try to count mainly the soldiers that the immune system produces and I have to tell you that there are many.
