The Language of Cells
Our bodies contain some 60 trillion cells that must communicate with each other in order to carry out functions. Their language is conducted by hormones, the chief chemical messengers between cells. Travelling through the blood, hormones enter cells through “receptor” sites much as a key unlocks a door. Once inside, they get to work flipping the switches that govern growth, development, and mental and physical functions throughout life.
Balance—the Key to Health
Hormones exist in harmony with each other – partners in a delicate balancing act. When levels of each hormone are in the right proportions, body systems are stable. When balance is lost, hormone deficiencies and excesses can become toxic to the body, causing unwanted symptoms, disorders and disease.
