Endocrine System

The endocrine system consists of organs, hormones, the thyroid gland, and adrenal glands. These carry hormones around your body and get them where they need to go. Hormones communicate digestion, metabolism, sleep cycles, stress, growth, reproduction, and mood. The endocrine system is susceptible to certain diseases. These diseases include diabetes, thyroid disease, and obesity. 


Hormones are susceptible in an imbalance, which in turn, can lead to a wealth of problems in your body. Think of them as your body's messengers for its most important mail. If the mail doesn't get where it needs to go, parts of your body are not receiving instructions on how to function. This malfunction could make you sleepy or sweaty for seemingly no reason. It is important that the endocrine system is functioning and that hormone levels are balanced.
