Hormones, Adrenal, & Thyroid

Hormone Solutions

Hormones are your body's chemical messengers that serve as a form of communications between different organs and tissues.  They regulate physiological and behavioral activities including digestion, metabolism, respiration, tissue function, sensory perception, sleep, excretion, lactation, stress, growth and development, movement, reproduction, and mood.  The brain is a target for many of the hormones, and it regulates the secretion of these hormones.  Too much or too little of a hormone can be serious because it only takes a small amount to cause major changes in cells or even the whole body.

Adrenal Solutions

The adrenal glands are located on the top of each kidney.  They produce hormones that one can't live without, including sex hormones and cortisol which helps you respond to stress and many other important functions.  Adrenal gland disorders are conditions that interfere with the normal functioning of the adrenal glands from deficiencies in the availability of steroids.

The adrenal cortex produces cortisol, a hormone that regulates nearly every type of organ and tissue within the body.  This may also include impaired production of aldosterone, which regulates sodium conservations, potassium secretion, and water retention.  When the proportions are disrupted, it results in low blood pressure.  It is common for most patients with adrenal insufficiency to experience fatigue, poor appetites, dizziness, weight loss, nausea, and crave salty foods due to urinary losses of sodium.

Thyroid Solutions

The thyroid is in the neck below the Adam's apple.  When there is no inflammation or swelling in the thyroid you can't feel it on the exterior.  The thyroid is packed with blood vessels and nerves which are important for voice quality.  The thyroid excretes hormones simply called thyroid hormones and the main one is thyroxine or T4.  These hormones are throughout the body and influence metabolism, growth and development, as well as body temperature.  The health of the thyroid is vital for hormones to be correctly regulated throughout the entire body.  In order to avoid severe issues, good thyroid health is imperative.
