The pituitary is the “master gland” one of the main computers of the body. It
releases hormone-like substances that stimulate other endocrine glands and
tissues to produce or release specific hormones, steroids, neurotransmitters and the like. The structure of the pituitary is divided into two parts: the posterior lobe, which is an outgrowth from part of the brain, and the anterior lobe, being an outgrowth from the pharynx. The pituitary is attached and
lives under the hypothalamus portion of your brain (behind the eyes in the
middle of the head).
The pituitary, being the master gland, controls some of the functions ofmost other glands. When the pituitary becomes weakened it can affect the
whole body, causing a chain reaction, thereby producing multiple symptoms.
The pituitary gland can affect the thyroid or adrenal glands in a positive or
negative way. It is important to understand these reflex possibilities to help
you address your weaknesses properly and to gain more successful results.
Some of the far-reaching effects of a weakened pituitary gland include neurological weaknesses such as: multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and cerebral palsy (from lack of adrenal cortex stimulation), as well as hypothyroidism, hypo-function of the ovaries, underactive or overactive tissue or cell growth,
rapid aging, diabetes, and lactation problems.
The middle of the transverse colon (large intestine) has a relationship to the pituitary and brain. Oftentimes this part of the bowel becomes impacted,
toxic and weakened, thereby feeding toxins directly to the pituitary gland. Being one of the first areas of the body formed in the embryo stages of life, the GI tract is linked to all tissues in the body in ways we do not yet understand. We do know that in the embryo stages the spinal cord and the gut tissues are the first manifestation from the head area. As the embryo cell opens up, this gut tissue now becomes the source of most of our organs and glands. This gut tissue in the fetus later becomes the GI tract, thus creating a dynamic relationship between the GI tract and the rest of the body. (Continued in comments)
