One of the major systems in the human body is the endocrine system. This system is composed of a number of glands that communicate information and control responses throughout the body.
The body is composed on two main types of glands. The exocrine glands release outside of the body (e.g., tears and sweat). Endocrine glands are located within the body.
You might say endocrine glands are a little bossy — they tell your cells what to do, which is actually a good thing. Without your endocrine glands — and the hormones they release — your cells wouldn’t know when to do important things.
A CHAKRA BALANCE
The endocrine system is part of the body’s main control mechanism. It comprises of a number of ductless glands that produce the hormones, acting as chemical messengers, that are secreted into the bloodstream from particular organs to stimulate or inhibit physical processes. By adjusting the hormone levels, the endocrine system works to maintain the body in a state of optimum health.

The adrenal glands produce adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine when the body is in a stressed state.
The ovaries produce progesterone which prepares the uterus to be implanted with a fertilised egg and oestrogen whig aids in breast development. The testes produce androgen which assist in sexual arousal.
STOMACH/NAVEL/SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA
The pancreas secretes substances for the digestion of food, such as insulin which assists in regulating our blood sugar levels.
The thymus produces lymphocytes, which help to boost our immunity by attacking invading organisms.
The thyroid produces thyroxine, which controls the metabolism in the body. The parathyroid glands regulate serum calcium and phosphate.
THIRD EYE CHAKRA
The pituitary gland is like the commanding officer that helps to regulate all the glands in the body based on the messages it has received from the hypothalamus.
The pineal gland lies deep within the brain and produces melatonin which helps maintain your circadian rhythms and quality of sleep.
