Pituitary Gland

The pituitary gland is termed the “Master Gland” because it directs other organs and endocrine glands, such as the adrenal glands, to suppress or induce hormone production. Pituitary disorders occur when the pituitary gland produces too many or not enough hormones. Hormones are chemicals that are released into the bloodstream. It is important that the body releases normal amounts of hormones because they send messages to cells throughout the body in order to regulate bodily functions, such as growth, metabolism, and sexual development. Many experts consider the pituitary gland to be the most important part of the endocrine system because it secretes hormones that regulate the functions of many other endocrine glands. As a result, patients with pituitary disorders may experience a disruption in many different bodily functions

The pituitary gland is involved in several functions of the body including:

Growth Hormone (GH) Production; which regulates bone and tissue growth. It also helps maintain a healthy balance of muscle and fat tissue in the body.

Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH); which signals the thyroid gland to secrete other hormones that regulate the body’s metabolism.

PITIUITARY HEALTH IS IMPERATIVE FOR HORMONE PRODUCTION AND REGULATION

Conditions associated with Pituitary are Acromegaly, Cushing disease and Pituitary tumor.

Gallbladder

The gallbladder is a small sac found just under the liver. It stores bile made by the liver. Bile helps you digest fats.

gallbladderGallstones Signs or Symptoms to look for:

  • Sharp stabbing pain on the right side of the Stomach
  • Pain can develop suddenly in the center of the upper belly and spread to the right upper back or shoulder blade area. It is usually hard to get comfortable; moving around does not make the pain go away.
  • Can prevent you from taking normal or deep breaths.
  • Last 15 minutes to 24 hours; 1 to 5 hours of continuous pain is common.
  • Occur after meals
  • Most gallstones do not cause problems. But if they block a duct, they usually need medical attention to break up the stones or remove the Gallbladder.

The Gallbladder is a very important organ, it helps produce energy. Bile is needed to break down fats for energy, decreased energy and strength is possible, if the gallbladder is not healthy or removed. When moderate to large quantities of fat are consumed, the gallbladder releases large amounts of bile.

Low fat programs and patients that eat a little food, can cause Gallstones. If you don’t use the Gallbladder, Stones will form and then trouble begins.

If your gallbladder is slacking, you need a supplement that energizes, detoxs and cleans the gallbladder. Go to a L3W provider and find out if your gallbladder needs help. Find out what Bio-Chemical type you are. The program gives the patient combination of fat, protein and carbohydrates.

Thymus Gland and Immune system

The Thymus Gland and Immune system

ThymusThe thymus is located in the upper part of the chest. It is made of two lobes that join in front of the trachea. The thymus is an important part of children’s immune systems. It grows larger until puberty and then begins to shrink. The gland produces thymosins, which are hormones that stimulate the development of antibodies. The thymus also produces T-lymphocytes which are white blood cells that fight infections and destroy abnormal cells.

The main function of the thymus gland is to produce and process lymphocytes or T cells (in T cells ‘T’ stands for thymus derived). Lymphocytes are White Blood Cells (WBCs), which are also known as leukocytes. After the white blood cells mature, they leave the thymus gland and get settled in the spleen and the lymph nodes, where a fresh batch of T cells is produced. These white blood cells are the body’s immune system and protect the body by producing antibodies that stop the invasion of foreign agents, bacteria and viruses. These cells also ensure the proper functioning of the body system and look after the wear and tear of the organs. Another function of thymus gland is to prevent the abnormal growth of cells that may lead to cancer. The T lymphocytes travel from the bone marrow to the thymus gland where they remain until they get activated. After maturity, the lymphocytes enter the blood stream. From there they travel to other lymphatic organs and provide defense mechanism against diseases. In some cases, the thymus gland may become underactive. The individual may have a weak immune system and be prone to many infections and allergies. These infections can be chronic and may continue for a long time. When there is a lack of T cells in the body, it can lead to immunodeficiency diseases. The person suffering from immunodeficiency diseases may show symptoms like extreme sweating, puffiness or soreness of the throat, swelling in the glands and depression.

Malnutrition and a deficiency of protein at an early age, can lead to the slow or limited growth of the thymus, thus impairing the normal functioning of the lymphocytes. Have your child get the L3W profile to eat the correct foods for Thymus development.

Autoimmune diseases are caused by a hyperactive immune system that instead of attacking foreign pathogens reacts against the host organism (self) causing disease. One of the primary functions of the thymus is to prevent autoimmunity through the process of central tolerance, immunologic tolerance to self antigens.

If the patient has a Thymus problem, L3W recommends a pure Thymus extract to help the Thymus run more efficiently. Death is a progressive weakness of the immune system. We all have cancer cells in our body, but a healthy Thymus combats the cancer cells so they don’t proliferate. L3W program reduces stress on the organs and glands, which puts less stress on the immune system. Call a L3W provider to get tested now!!
