Understanding Your THYROID...and keeping it in shape....

The thyroid, adrenal, sex, gonads, pituitary glands... are all controlled by higher centers of the brain and nervous systems. All of these Glands secrete horomones into the blood stream in an attempt to bring balance within the body. The Endoctrine System is made up of these glands that secretes the horomones and they are located in the intestines, kidneys, lungs, heart, and blood vessels. These Glands try and maintain homeostasis (meaning that they are trying to keep your system balanced and stabilized.) ...So when the "Pituitary gland" which is like the "Master Gland" is not well, the thyroid and other glands will not be at its best, and in turn your metabolism becomes effected and possibly off balance.

Glands are an integrated part of the bodys' system and they determine your size, weight, stature, hair distribution, sound of your voice, emotions, occurance of head pain, etc... So take care of yourselves, but if you are having Thyroid problems.
