The adrenal glands are small powerful glands that secrete numerous hormones and work with the nervous system to respond to stress.
Traditionally, life was lived in harmony with nature and our adrenal glands prepared our body for fight or flight. Today, as we are exposed to increasing amounts of low-level stress, fear, and anxiety, our adrenal glands are constantly over-stimulated, affecting their vital energy and their ability to function optimally, resulting in an array of symptoms.
Reconnecting with traditional Indian holistic therapies enables us to restore our body’s energies and empower our adrenal glands.
