By @conscious_collective "Although we rarely think about them, the glands of the endocrine system and the hormones they release influence almost every cell, organ, and function of our bodies. The endocrine system is instrumental in regulating mood, growth and development, tissue function, and metabolism, as well as sexual function, and reproductive processes. In general, the endocrine system is in charge of body processes that happen slowly, such as cell growth. Faster processes like breathing and body movement are controlled by the nervous system. But even though the nervous system and endocrine system are separate, they often work together to help the body function properly. Endocrine systems are found in all mammals, birds, fish, and many other types of living organisms. They are made up of glands located throughout the body. Hormones that are made by the glands are released into the bloodstream or the fluid surrounding the cells. Receptors in various organs and tissues recognize and respond to the hormones. Hormones are released by glands and travel throughout the body as chemical messengers. In eastern philosophies and medical traditions the glands of the endocrine system are associated with the chakras. Each gland corresponds with a particular chakra. Just as people in the east believe balancing the chakras is essential for health, in western medical practices it is known that balancing the endocrine system is essential for health.
"If you skew the endocrine system, you lose the pathways to self. When endocrine patterns change, it alters the way you think and feel. One shift in the pattern tends to trip another."
