Adrenal and Endocrine Natural Recovery Hormone Extract
Diseases of the endocrine system
Hormone levels that are too high or too low are an indication of a problem with the endocrine system. Hormone diseases also occur if your body does not respond to hormones in the appropriate ways. Stress, infection and changes the blood’s fluid and electrolyte balance can also influence hormone levels.
The most common endocrine disease in the United States is diabetes, a condition in which the body does not properly process glucose. This is due to the lack of insulin or, if the body is producing insulin, it is not working effectively.
Hormone imbalances can have a significant impact on the reproductive systems, particularly in women. Endocrinologists treat patients with fertility issues and also assess and treat patients with health concerns surrounding menstruation and menopause.
Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone to meet the body’s needs. Insufficient thyroid hormone can cause many of the body’s functions to slow or shut down completely.
Thyroid cancer begins in the thyroid gland and starts when the cells in the thyroid begin to change, grow uncontrollably and eventually form a tumor.
Hypoglycemia, also called low blood glucose or low blood sugar, occurs when blood glucose drops below normal levels. This typically happens as a result of treatment for diabetes when too much insulin is taken. While it can occur in people not undergoing treatment for diabetes, it is fairly rare.
A metabolic disorder occurs when there is an imbalance of substances needed to keep the body functioning — hormone levels may be too high or low. Metabolic disorder when some organs, such as your liver or pancreas, become diseased or do not function normally. Diabetes is an example.
The bones can be impacted by hormones. Osteoporosis and Osteomalacia (rickets), which causes bones to soften, come under the guise of endocrinologists.

Adrenal Glands create approx 70 of our hormones.
What are the Adrenal Glands?
No bigger than a walnut and weighing less than a grape, each of your two adrenal function glands sits like a tiny pyramid on top of a kidney (“ad” “renal” means “over” the “kidneys”). But don’t let their small size fool you; these powerful little hormone producing glands manufacture and secrete almost 50 different hormones, including steroid hormones such as adrenalin, cortisol, aldosterone, estrogen and testosterone that are absolutely essential to your health and vitality. They not only significantly affect the functioning of every single tissue, organ and gland in your body; they also have important effects on the fluid balance control and blood sugar regulation. They even regulate how you think and feel and determine how effective your immune system functions. Without the hormones the adrenals produce you would die very quickly, and when out of balance the quality of your health and wellbeing becomes severely compromised. Does it not make sense therefore to optimise the functioning of these tiny glands? Of course it does.
What is their purpose?
The adrenal glands keep your body’s reactions to stress in balance so that they are appropriate and not harmful. For example, the protective activity of anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant adrenal hormones like cortisol helps to minimise negative and allergic reactions, such as swelling and inflammation, to alcohol, drugs, foods, environmental allergens, cancer, infection, and autoimmune disorders (like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, MS, and the 70 odd other auto-immune conditions). These hormones closely affect the utilisation of carbohydrates and fats, the conversion of fats and proteins into energy, the distribution of stored fat (especially around your waist and at the sides of your face), normal blood sugar regulation (hypoglycemia is one of the problems related to poor adrenal function), and proper cardiovascular and gastrointestinal function.
After mid-life (menopause in women), the adrenal glands gradually become the major source of the sex hormones circulating throughout the body in both men and women. These hormones themselves have a whole host of physical, emotional and psychological effects, from the level of your sex drive to the tendency to gain weight. Every athlete knows that steroids (adrenal hormones) affect muscular strength and stamina.
