Healing and the Endocrine System

I'm delighted to present a guest post by Alison Woodman of A.M. Healing, a student healer at the Harry Edwards Sanctuary. Alison was kind enough to share her learnings on the Endocrine System with us as it is an integral part of the energy healing curriculum. Thank You Alison for your insight and generosity!  

The Body's Main Control System - by Alison Woodman

There are 11 systems that operate within our physical bodies and they are: 

  • The Digestive System 
  • The Urinary System
  • The Cardiovascular System
  • The Central Nervous System 
  • The Skeletal System  
  • The Respiratory System 
  • The Muscular System
  • The Endocrine System
  • The Reproductive System
  • The Lymphatic systems 
  • The Integument System   

As healers we are very interested in The Endocrine system because of it's alignment with The Chakras. The Chakras are not physical but simply aspects of the consciousness in the same way that the aura is. The Endocrine System is a group of Glands controlled by the Pituitary Gland. Some describe the Pituitary gland as the orchestra conductor because this gland controls the others by sending messages relating to the secretion of hormones. If the Pituitary gland is not functioning correctly then you can bet that the other glands will be under strain too. The hormone secretion through the kidneys and liver are vitally linked to our feeling WELL and spiritual healing can be a great way to connect with Chakras and inevitably The Endocrine system. Why are they connected you may wonder? Well as luck would have it the 7 glands within The Endocrine system are aligned perfectly with the 7 Main Chakras. They are linked of that there is no doubt and listed below are the 7 Chakras , The link with the glands and the possible issues and emotions relating to them both.

Each of the following will present the chakra-gland pairing, along with the issue they are linked with: 

  • Crown Charka - Pineal Gland - Spiritual denial/ migraines
  • Brow Chakra - Pituitary Gland - Truth/intuition/depression/ mood swings
  • Throat Chakra - Thyroid Gland - Communication or lack of father issues
  • Heart Chakra - Thymus Gland -Love/immune system/ balance/ trust/ jealousy 
  • Solar plexus - The Pancreas - Mind/ no emotions/ fear/ diabetes/ wisdom
  • Sacral Chakra - The Adrenals - Joy/ shock/ creativity/ hysterectomy/ prostrate
  • Base Chakra - Gonads - Courage/Pysical needs/ Resentment/ Anger
So from the above information it is easy to see how working on the various Chakras during a healing session and ensuring they are fully open and spinning correctly greatly benefits that particular area of The Endocrine system as they are highly integrated. It is vitally important to look after your body with diet and exercise to ensure that the correct balance is met because after all our Biography will ultimately becomes our Biography. Look after yourselves guys x"

  1. Geena, I recall our conversation on DIS-ease within one's body. I've had type1 Diabetes since age 9 and I'm betting it would get better the more balanced my energies and chakras become. THANK-YOU Alison for guest posting :)

    1. Hi Emili, Thanks for the comment! Yes I do remember the conversation. Try one of the chakra balancing meditations on youtube and see how you feel. I've also heard diabetes is about "not feeling life is sweet enough" .... it is mean to link to people eating too many sweets to compensate and then throwing their body out of whack.

      Any thoughts on that?


  2. Thank for share :) About Diabetes, I have heard that too, about 'life not being sweet enought' but as well in relation to breast feeding and feeling regected by mother. Meaning issues with mother not being there for them, not enough nourechement. Most things related with mouth/oral like food, drink, smoking, etc can mostly be related with issues with mother in Freudian Psychology. And I think it makes sense too in energecticly. xxx
