Adrenal Gland Imbalance

The adrenal glands consist of two sections;1.) An inner part called the medulla produces stress hormones and an2.) outer part called the cortex secretes critical hormones called glucocorticoids and aldosterones. Because of these hormones, the cortex has a far greater impact on overall health than the medulla does.Why are aldosterone and glucocorticoids so important?Because they 1..) directly affect blood pressure 2..) mineral absorbtion 3..) help regulate the conversion of carbohydrates into energy. This can lead to life-threatening fluid and mineral loss unless these hormones are replaced. Nutmeg, for example, has adrenal-like activity that raises the energy levels. Nutmeg, Sage with nutmeg, clove, rosemary or basil, are all helpfull Add the essential oils to 1 teaspoon of massage oil and apply as a hot compress over the adrenal glands (located on top of the kidneys).3 drops clove, 3 drops nutmeg,7 drops rosemary. Also take 1 pill Thryomin (non-vegetarian) –at night. Endoflex ess oil should be rubbed onto feet and glandular organs immediately after waking and is most helpful for support of the adrenals
