the endocrine system, hormones and chakras

The endocrine system, hormones, nervous system and chakras are connected and interrelated.

The seven main ductless endocrine glands secrete hormones through the blood. They include the adrenals, pancreas, thymus, thyroid, pituitary, pineal, ovaries and testes, hypothalamus, parathyroid and duodenum.

Hormones play a critical role in many functions of the body and are the chemical messengers that transfer signals to perform many biological functions.

Hormones are produced by the endocrine glands bind with protein receptors of the cell. Humans have some 50 known hormones, of which some are water-soluble and others fat-soluble.

Keeping the proper functioning of the endocrine system is important. Not only does it work with the physical body and the balancing of hormones, but also affects our spiritual self with the soul connection through the pineal gland.
