About the Endocrine System
Endocrine Glands and Hormones

The Endocrine System Essentials

The endocrine system is made up of a network of glands.
These glands secrete hormones to regulate many bodily functions, including growth and metabolism.
Endocrine diseases are common and usually occur when glands produce an incorrect amount of hormones.

The endocrine system helps control the following processes and systems:

~ Growth and development
~ Homeostasis (the internal balance of body systems)
~ Metabolism (body energy levels)
~ Reproduction
~ Response to stimuli (stress and/or injury)

The Endocrine Network
The endocrine system completes these tasks through its network of glands, which are small but highly important organs that produce, store, and secrete hormones.

The glands of the endocrine system are:
~ Hypothalamus
~ Pineal Gland
~ Pituitary Gland
~ Thyroid
~ Parathyroid
~ Thymus
~ Adrenal
~ Pancreas
~ Ovaries
~ Testes

These glands produce different types of hormones that evoke a specific response in other cells, tissues, and/or organs located throughout the body. The hormones reach these faraway targets using the blood stream. Like the nervous system, the endocrine system is one of your body’s main communicators. But instead of using nerves to transmit information, the endocrine system uses blood vessels to deliver hormones to cells.

Female Hormonal Imbalance

Posted in ENDOCTRINE DISORDER, NATURAL WELL BEING, PARASITES, PCOS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 5:20 pm by PCOSLady

YEAST and PARASITES
~
PCOS Lady:
Ladies, these symptoms are what many of us experience! Many doctors treat the disease in us not us in disease… Which means we are always sick, not feeling our best! Homeopath treats “YOU” naturally! Dr Tien says to treat yeast and parasites together to rid them from you… I have read you have to treat the whole “YOU” at one time since parasites scurry to other areas in your body…
~
Natural Remedies for Female Hormonal Imbalance
~
By Dr. Juliet Tien (Dr. J), D.N. Sc.
~ ~ ~
There are more than 250,000 species of yeasts and parasites. I can not describe them all. The above are most commonly seen among the people in Northern America. In other words, you have been feeding an “extended family” involuntarily. Not only do yeasts and parasites suck your energy, they also deposit toxins after they have a rock ‘n roll party in your body. That’s why you feel fatigued, and also suffer allergy symptoms.
~
This article addresses female hormonal imbalance. Let me ask you a few questions, and please answer honestly.
~
* ~ Have you been plagued with itchy, foul-smelling, yellowish vaginal discharge?
* ~ Do you experience pain during sexual intercourse?
* ~ Are you avoiding sex because you are always tired?
* ~ Are you lethargic no matter how much time you’ve stayed in bed?
* ~ Are your menstrual cycles irregular and painful?
* ~ Are you bothered by menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, sugar craving, weight gain, and loss of libido?
* ~ Are you troubled by mood swings?
~
If any of the above symptoms apply to you, then you suffer from hormonal imbalance knowingly or unknowingly. In order to regain the long-lasting balance, the following are essential natural remedies for you to consider:
~
Yeast-Free Nutritional Program:
All human beings, regardless of gender and age, should adopt a yeast-free nutritional program to regain health and balance. A yeast-free nutritional program contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.
~
You might ask, “What can I eat then?” To learn about the details in terms of what you can eat, and what you should avoid, read my two books, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing and Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking. These books may be available in your local libraries in the U.S.
~
You may deviate from the principles of a yeast-free nutritional program from time to time. As long as you go for moderation, occasional deviation will not spoil your yeast-free nutritional program completely. Do whatever you can. If you could do 50%, you will get 50% of the benefits. If you could do 70%, you will get 70% of the benefits. Don’t wait for the perfect time to start this life-changing nutritional program, because a perfect time may never come!
~
Yeast and parasites are like “Siamese Twins.” They go hand in hand. However, in the herbal market today, you will find herbal formulas for removing yeasts or parasites, but not for both. This is because of the manufacturers’ lack of understanding about how the overgrowth of yeast and parasites occur. In order to enjoy long-lasting health benefits, you must control the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites simultaneously.
~
In addition to a yeast-free nutritional program, if your body is too toxic, you need to consider herbal therapy as well. The following types of herbal formulas are proven to be most effective in helping thousands of my clients regain their hormonal balance.

Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X)
~
What is it?
~
Metabolic Syndrome, a.k.a. Syndrome X, occurs in 24% of U.S. adults, or approximately 60-75 million Americans. It is usually associated with obesity. It is a condition that features the combination of insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia (excessive or too much insulin), which has profound health implications. It is commonly associated with coronary heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes mellitus type 2. These individuals often have lipid profiles in which they have elevated triglycerides with low HDL levels (their triglyceride/HDL ratios are usually over 4.) Their fasting insulin levels are above 8.
~
DO I HAVE METABOLIC SYNDROME?
~
Here are ten clues:
* I cannot lose weight.
* I tend to gain weight in the “apple” distribution.
* I crave sugar and carbohydrates.
* My energy levels are erratic.
* I have a family history of diabetes.
* I had a large baby (over nine pounds) and/or had gestational diabetes.
* I have a history of polycystic ovaries.
* I have non-European ancestry.
* I have a tendency to hypertension and/or borderline blood sugars.
* I have skin tags around my neck and upper body.
~
The five clinical criteria doctors use to diagnose metabolic syndrome are listed below. If you have three of them, see your health provider for an in depth work-up.
~
FIVE CLINICAL CRITERIA OF METABOLIC SYNDROME
~
* Elevated waist circumference (greater than 40 inches in males and 35 inches in females)
* Triglyceride levels above 150 mg/dl
* Decreased HDL (less than 40 mg/dl for men and below 50 mg/dl for females)
* Blood pressure above 130/85
* Fasting glucose above 110 mg/dl

Hyperthyroidism vs Hypothyroidism Symptoms

Posted in ENDOCTRINE DISORDER, MISDIAGNOSED, RELATED: HORMONES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 11:30 pm by PCOSLady


HYPERTHYROIDISM vs HYPOTHYROIDISM SYMPTOMS

~
PCOS Lady:
Many PCOS ladies will also have a thyroid issue… I have posted the symptoms and info to help you tell the differences and be better informed…
~
Seeing an endocrinologist is your best choice of doctors. Your doctor may tell you your thyroid was fine after a TSH only. Some people see multiple doctors before being told they have a thyroid problem. You may be misdiagnosed with depression or Diabetes or not diagnosed with anything!
~ Keeping a list of your symptoms will help in getting diagnosed properly…
~ Be sure your doctor addresses all your concerns and symptoms…
~
SYMPTOMS COUNT
!
~
Your symptoms will show you have a thyroid problem. You may be hyperthyroid or hypothyroidism. Absence of periods leans to Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism.

http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/h/hypothyroidism/symptoms.htm – symptom_list
~
Hyperthyroidism Symptoms:
~

~

~ difficulty tolerating cold and lower body temperature

~ tingling sensation in wrists and hands that mimics carpal tunnel syndrome
~ memory loss, fuzzy thinking, difficulty following conversation or train of thought
~ slowness or slurring of speech
~
Different sources vary the symptoms lists. Keep in mind that, as with many medical disorders, you may only have a few of the symptoms. And just because you don’t have a hallmark symptom of a disorder doesn’t mean you don’t have it.
~
Many times basic and general tests will not reveal certain problems like thyroid disease, prediabetes. You may need to insist on more detailed, targeted tests, even if you feel you have an excellent doctor.
~
SYMPTOMS COUNT!

PCOS Lady:
I have PCOS with 28 mild symptoms… Dr Chang in California told me at first i did not have PCOS… I pushed the symptoms i had and quoted his words back at him on points… He agreed i had PCOS!
