Treating Endocrine Disorders through Ayurveda

Not just Physical Symptoms & Imbalances

The human endocrine system consists of the collective network of glands that secrete hormones ( chemicals) that regulate the functions of the human body and are critical to the wholeness and its well-being. The endocrine glands secrete the hormones inside of the human body, using blood as its transporter.

Common Endocrinal Disorders

Our Endocrine Glands

  • Hypothalamus
  • Pineal Gland
  • Pituitary Gland
  • Thyroid
  • Pancreas
  • Parathyroid
  • Adrenal
  • Thymus,
  • Testes
  • Ovaries

Common Disorders

The common endocrinal disorders include Type 1 & 2 Diabetes, Adrenal Disorders, Hyper/Hypo Thyroidism, Low Testosterone
Hypoglycemia, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, Pituitary Disorders, Menopause, Goiters and Cushing’s Syndrome, amongst others.

A rigorous following of the Ayurvedic regimen can help a significant part in healing hormonal imbalances brought about by endocrinal disorders. Sage Charaka mentions 8 undesirable constitutions 9 (nindita purusha) in the Suthra Sthana that specifically state anomalies in growth ( too tall, too short), hairiness, girth, abnormal skin coloration – all of which can be directly connected to the endocrine functions.

What are the Causes

When it comes to endocrine disorders, there is no one specific causative that hinders the functioning of the entire process, and hence there can be a range of possibilities. The most common ones include the inability of the specific glands to produce the hormones due to damage or disease, genetic factors, tumours on the glands, body infections, and body conditions that affect the production – over or under levels.

As one of the body’s main communicators, the hormones of the endocrine glands become our internal messengers-cum-facilitators, and a breakdown of this simple process – 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 is what leads to imbalances, resulting in endocrine disorders.
