Treating Endocrine Disorders through Ayurveda

Not just Physical Symptoms & Imbalances

The human endocrine system consists of a collective network of glands. These glands secrete hormones (chemicals) that regulate the functions of the human body. Markedly, they are critical to the body’s wholeness and its well-being. The blood transports the hormones from the endocrine glands to various parts of the body. Endocrine disorders are due to the imbalance of the hormones in the human body.

They include growth (too tall, too short), hairiness, girth, abnormal skin and coloration. Interestingly, all these can be directly connected to the endocrine functions.

What are the Causes

Endocrine Disorders treatment in Ayurveda

Endocrine disorders can be a result of a variety of reasons. In fact, there is no one specific reason that hinders the functioning of the entire process. Hence there can be a range of possibilities. The most Inability of the specific glands to produce the hormones is the most common. This may be due to damage or disease, genetic factors or tumours on the glands. Body conditions and body infections are also possible factors. These affect the production – over or under levels – which are also possible reasons.

Hormones of endocrine glands are one of the body’s main communicators. A breakdown of this simple process helps in understanding this better. The inability to produce/send from source, difficulty in transportation ( through the blood), and the inability of the recipient tissue to “understand” and do the desirable action – these are the 3 main aspects. Breakdown in any of these simple stages leads to imbalances. Subsequently, it results in endocrine disorders.
