The nervous system control body activities through electrical impulses, the endocrine system uses chemical mesengers called hormones. Both the systems combined control all unconscious body functions and maintain our body at the best. The endocrine glands release hormones that are absorbed into the blood so that they circulate and can act on one, or more than one, distance tissue. Chemical receptors on the surface of or inside the target cells respond to each hormone, resulting in specific cell activities. The hypothalamus, part of the brain, links nervous and hormonal controls mainly by its influence on the nearby pituitary gland, which in turn regulates the activity of the thyroid gland, adrenal glands and gonads (ovaries and testes). The other principal endcrine glands are the parathyroids and the insulin-producing islets of the pancreas.
The level of all hormone secretion is delicately adjusted to avoid too much or too little, mainly by feedback control. When cheical sensors in the hypothalamus detect that thyroid hormones in the blood are too low, the hypothalamus directs the pituitary to release more thyroid stimulating hormone so that more thyroid hormone is produced. When blood thyroid hormones becoe adequate this extra stimulation stops.
The endocrine glands ;
Pituitary ; Lying at the base of the brain beneath the hypothalamus, it has been called the master gland as it regulates body activities. It has two parts, the anterior(front) and posterior(back). Anterior pituitary hormones stimulate endocrine or other glands to produce secretion or grow, in addition it stimulate the thyroid, adrenals and gonads. Its growth increases the rate of growth of all tissues andprolactin stimulates milk production. The posterior pituitary produces oxytocin, to stimulate uterine contractions in childbirth, and antidiuretic hormone, which regulates the volume of urine produced.
Thyroid ; This gland is wrapped around the front of the trachea, windpipe and its hormones regulate the metabolism and growth by increasing oxygen consumpton, energy production and protein synthesis. The thyroid needs iodine from food and water to make its main hormones, thyroxine(T4) and tri-iodothronine(T3). A third hormone, calcitonin, is produced by different thyroid cells and helps parathyroid hormone to regulate calcium levels in the blood.
Parathyroid Glands ; When chemical sensors in the four pea sized parathyroid glands behind the thyroid detect that blood calcium is too low, they secrete more calcium being released from bones into blood, more being absorbed from the intestine and more being conserved by the kidneys. The action quickly restore the blood calcium level, if it begins to get too high, the parathyroids release less hormone.
Adrenal Glands ; One capping each kidney, the pyramid shaped, adrenal glands consist of two parts, an outer cortex and an inner medulla. The cortex produces a number of corticosteroid hormones; aldosterone, which helps to maintain adequate body water by influencing reabsorption of minerals by the kidneys; glucocorticoids which promote glucose production and help the body respond to stresses such as injury and severe anxiety; and some male hormones in both the sexes. The adrenal medulla is part of the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system and produce adrenalin and noradrenalin inresponse to acute physical or emotional stress. Impulses from the hypothalamus travel along sympathetic nerves to jolt the adrenal medulla into releasing its hormones to prepare the body for immediate protective action.
Pancreas ; Scattered throughout the pancrease enqyme producing tissue are small clusters of endocrine cells, the islets of langerhans. Different cells in the islets produce hormones, insulin and glucagon, which regulate fluctuations in blood glucose levels. When blood glucose increase after a meal, insulin limits its level by speeding the entry of glucose into the cells and by accelerating conversion of glucose to glycogen for storage. Glucagon has the opposite effect; when blood glucose falls below normal, it hastens conversion of glycogen to glucose and helps the liver to convert oter nutrients into glucose.
Testes, Ovaries : Inside the testis-connective tissue partitions divide the testis into lobules that house the coiled tubules, from which fully formed sperm travel via short ducts to the epididymis. AND, closs section of shaft of penis contains three cylinders of erectile tissue surrounded by capsules – the two cavernous bodies in front and a spongy body behind. During sexual arousal blood distends erectile tissue and makes it hard. With its thinner capsule, the spongy body becomes less hard so that semen can be ejaculated through the urethra. Reproductive system, controlled by Coldness meridien ; Uterus is a hollow organ as Yang, so is penis that becomes fulled with the blood. Both, uterus and penis are controlled by the Spinal Cord. Ovaries and testies are full of substance and controlled by the brain meridien. Darkness finger controls reproductive system according to energy concept of acupuncture sujok. The Kidney is supported by sex and reproductive function in men, and with kidney and liver in women.
ACUPUNCTURE SuJok – Treatment is associated with the improvement or cure of HORMONAL and decreased use of medications, as the concept too emphasise at the EMOTIONAL level. Thus, with the energy concept of Acupuncture SuJok, treatment is effective to have positive results. The course of treatment is defenietly uneventful. Moreover the treatment concept is only on the palms. If looking for EFFECTIVE CURE results ;
