The Glandular System

The glandular system communicates using chemical messengers called hormones, which stimulate reactions that may last from a few hours to several days. Glandular system concerns include hormone imbalances, weak adrenal glands, thyroid imbalance, diabetes, hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia.

About Other Glands
1. Pituitary, Thymus
2. The Thyroid

Adrenals - Pancreas

  Cope with internal and external stresses - Suma combination is a collection of adaptogens. These are not correctives for any specific health problem, but bring the whole body back into balance. Adaptogens are also recommended as preventives against the causes of aging and other degenerative processes.
Internal stress includes degenerative diseases, advanced age or debility, immune deficiency and chronic fatigue. External stress includes exertion requiring stamina and endurance, exposure to extreme temperatures, and emotionally demanding circumstances.
  Nutri-Calm is a soothing blend of vitamins, minerals and herbs to help the nervous system cope with both short-term and long-term stress.
It helps to relieve symptoms related to an overactive nervous system including itching, hyperactivity, anorexia, and the problems of drug and alcohol withdrawal.
Nutri-Calm contains nutrients needed by nerve cells to grow and produce nerve energy.
It improves stress response by building adrenal glands and glands that produce nerve-regulating hormones.

Of course, it strengthens the real heart and circulatory system too (biota is similar to hawthorn).
Balanced B Complex
  Particularly important for the nervous system, vital for good digestive function and enzyme reactions that control energy, circulation, hormones and overall health Many different vitamin B compounds are grouped under the name B-complex.
Physically stressful conditions can also deplete the body of B vitamins. B-vitamins are particularly important for the nervous system and are also vital for good digestive function and enzyme reactions that control energy, circulation, hormones and overall health.
Their actions are interdependent, so for greatest efficiency the complex should be taken together.

II. The Pancreas

1. Blood Sugar Low

Sugar cravings
Sudden fatigue in mid-afternoon
Irritability or confusion when food is not eaten regularly
Sudden coldness of limbs or nose
Mood swings

Our Suggestion

Licorice Root
Its anti-spasmodic, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory actions make for excellent throat lozenges and ulcer remedies.
It helps to destroy viruses and to stimulate and clear the lymphatic system. Licorice feeds and activates the adrenal glands for a higher, more even level of energy. It has hormone-building effects. It is used by hypoglycemics to improve blood sugar regulation. Licorice can gradually increase sodium retention so long-term users of licorice should add a potassium supplement and reduce salt use. Diabetics should avoid licorice root which is very sweet.

2. Blood Sugar High
Constant thirst with frequent urination
High-carbohydrate, low-protein diet
High consumption of hydrogenated oils
Sedentary lifestyle/lack of exercise
Medical diagnosis of diabetes
Insulin Deficiency

    Our Suggestion



    • Supports normal-range blood sugar levels.
    • Activates cell glucose transporters.
    • Supports the liver; aids digestion
      It balances the glandular systems, particularly the pancreas and liver. This produces its blood sugar-regulating properties (especially for hypoglycemia but also diabetes) and its hormonal-regulating properties (for menopause, night sweats, insomnia, nervous exhaustion). It strengthen kidneys. Tissue dryness is associated with flushing, hot flashes, inflammations, dry skin, dry eyes, mouth, cough, stools.

    The glandular and nervous systems work intimately together to maintain balance among all of the body systems. Together, these systems regulate both voluntary and involuntary actions within the body such as growth, metabolism, digestion, elimination, menstruation and sleep. These systems also serve as the body's means of communication between cells.
