Recently my friend Kelly, has inspired me to reflect more on hormonal health. So today I thought I would share with you 1 yoga pose that can support your endocrine health and the balance hormonal production that takes place in your head.
Did you know that you have a major hormonal production center in your head. Your head houses your hypothalamus, your pituitary glands and your pineal glands. Your hypothalamus is in charge of your pituitary gland, known as the master gland, is responsible for your overall well-being. It produces several hormones but three which you might be interested in for your hormonal health.
Adrenocorticotropic: This hormone promotes the production of cortisol, which helps to reduce stress, maintain healthy blood pressure and more.
Thyroid-stimulating hormone: This hormone helps to regulate the body’s thyroid, which is crucial in maintaining a healthy metabolism.
Luteinizing hormone: In women, this hormone regulates estrogen.
Today I´m going to show you one super simple pose for your hypothalamus and pituitary glands to balance your hormones, but before I do that if you are looking for the ultimate in support for your hormonal health, I highly recommend our membership community. We have an entire series of classes for hormonal health that support not only your hypothalamus and pituitary gland, but also your, but also in your adrenals, thyroid, pancreas, pineal and ovaries. Not only that but we include recipes, tinctures, and herbal infusions as well.
The super simple pose that we are going to do today for your hypothalamus to stimulate your pituitary gland and balance your endocrine system and hormonal health is uttanasana or standing forward fold. This yoga pose increases blood flow to your brain and hypothalamus and improves the functioning of your pituitary gland.
Stay in this pose for 30 seconds to 2 mins.
