Hormones are chemical messengers that travel through the body coordinating processes like growth, metabolism, and fertility. They regulate different activities from digestion to metabolism and sleep or stress. Hormones also control body functions like hunger or complex systems like reproduction, and even the emotions and mood. The body has many different hormones, but certain types have a bigger role to play in the body’s health and well-being.

When the hormones are in proper balance, they help our body to feel great, but small problems with hormones can cause serious and symptoms.
Your hormonal system is what carries the nervous system information to the actual organs. It is the brain/body communication.
Nerves are bundles of axons in the peripheral nervous system the carry signals between the brain and the spinal cord and the rest of the body, kind of like an information street. The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord, sensory organs, and all of the nerves that connect these organs to the rest of the body. Together, these organs are responsible for the control of the body and communication among its parts.
If the nervous system is not balanced, then all the organs and glands do not have the power to maintain health or to heal.
