Natural Health Charts: Endocrine System
The human body consists of eight basic body systems (i.e., cardiovascular, circulatory, endocrine, muscular, nervous, reproductive, sensory and skeletal systems), and six systems of detoxification (i.e., the immune, lymphatic, digestive, urinary, respiratory and integumentary systems). The eight health factors can be used to prevent and treat nearly any infection, illness and disease, by achieving and maintaining a general state of homeostasis for all body systems. Certain amounts of additional nutrients, foods, herbs, chemicals, body chemicals, phytochemicals and/or other natural substances can also be used to build and rebuild, strengthen, repair, detoxify and heal each individual body system, based on its own functions and requirements.

Endocrine System

The endocrine system generally consists of the pancreas, ovaries, testes, and glands (i.e., adrenal, lymph, pituitary, thyroid, thymus, hypothalamus, parathyroid, pineal and other glands), which work together to produce and secrete hormones for regulating growth, development, puberty, and general metabolism.
