ADRENALS

SYSTEM: Glandular (Endocrine)

CATEGORY: Gland

NUMBER: Two

SHAPE: Triangular (See Adrenals Title Page)

SIZE:  1.8 ounce

LOCATION: Lies on top of the kidneys on either side of the back midway up.

FUNCTION: Called the flight or fight gland. Helps the body cope with trauma, stress or threatening conditions.

Produces cortisone and adrenaline plus other hormones (including: testosterone, progesterone and estrogen)

Regulates and balances fluids, hormones, sugar levels, energy heart rate and minerals.

KINESIOLOGY:   2 to 3 inches above the naval on torso (see page Adrenals-4)

IRIDOLOGY: In both eyes.  In right eye at 5:40 to 5:50 and in left eye at 6:10 to 6:20 above the kidneys and must be touching the autonomic nerve wreath.

Large or pulsating pupil can indicate possible adrenal exhaustion. (See page Adrenal-5)

REFLEXOLOGY: Right below pad of foot straight down from the second toe from the pinky (see page Adrenals-6)

BODY INDICATORS: None of which I am aware.

HELPS TO IMPROVE FUNCTION: Less stressful lifestyle. Meditation.  Vitamins and minerals are essential.

DETRIMENTAL TO ITS HEALTH: Stress, stimulants such as coffee,  tea (black or orange pekoe), caffeine, sodas, sugar and some medications.

POSSIBLE SYMPTOMS/HEALTH CONDITIONS:

HYPERACTIVITY (OVERACTIVE)

Diabetes, hypoglycemia, sinus problems, weakened immune system, nervousness and Cushing's Disease.

HYPOACTIVITY (UNDERACTIVE)

Weak adrenal cortex, hypoglycemia- (low blood sugar), and diabetes. Typical night person-(wants to sleep in mornings, but can stay up late at night, usually has a mid afternoon lag in energy getting a second wind in the evening.)

Addison's Disease, retains sodium (salt), sometimes allergic to citrus and tomatoes which indicates a Pantothenic Acid (B-5 deficiency)

MAIN MINERALS: Potassium, Organic Sodium, Magnesium and Calcium

MAIN VITAMINS: A,C, B-5 (Pantothenic Acid) and B-complex   

HERBS 

HISTORICALLY USED FOR:

Alfalfa  

High in Potassium and Sodium

Bee Pollen  

High in Potassium

Bayberry    

Builds and nourishes adrenals

Juniper Berries

Stimulates adrenal glands

Licorice root

My favorite (caution not for those with   diabetes or chronic high blood pressure)

   
HERBAL COMBO  HISTORICALLY USED FOR:
HY-C or HY-A Usually suggested for hypoglycemics
Pro-Pancreas (formally P-14) Usually suggested for diabetics

 
HOMEOPATHIC REMEDY FOR:
Fatigue/Exhaustion Energy while you build adrenals

           
OTHER SUPPLEMENTS HISTORICALLY USED FOR:
 L-Tyrosine  Relieves excess stress on adrenals    (amino acid)

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:

Floaters can indicate low blood sugar.

It is best when working with one gland to nutritionally support all glands. Therefore, I suggest Mastergland to be used as a base for any other supplement to help prevent weakening or stressing other glands.

When working with the adrenals also take into consideration the pituitary gland.  Weak adrenals could be a possible prelude or postlude to a weakened pancreas or liver.  

Adrenals produce fight or flight hormones.  

To test adrenal function take blood pressure while lying down, wait 5 minutes, take blood pressure again while standing, blood pressure lower while standing strongly indicates hypoactivity of the adrenal glands.

Symptoms of Addison's Disease: underactive adrenal function which symptoms include weakness, fatigue, digestive disturbances and discoloration of skin pigmentation where skin is rubbed such as bra, belt or top of arms and legs or in skin folds.

Symptoms of Cushing's Disease: Rapid obesity, osteoporosis, dryness of the skin, weight gain usually in neck, upper arms, upper legs and trunk of the body.        
QUESTIONS TO ASK YES INDICATES
Do you get charley horses A possible lack of potassium?
