Marg, I don't have to much of my mind left after the brain tumor was removed! :-) :^)
Glands form part of the endocrine system. The pituitary gland under the brain controls all the other glands in the body. Glands control how fast you grow, how your body burns food for energy and other bodily functions. Glands produce chemical secretions or excretions that regulate bodily functions. The whole body suffers when they malfunction. The underlying theory in Glandular Therapy is that by ingesting glandular material from a certain animal gland, the corresponding human gland will work better. Glandulars also refer to other organ parts of the body that are taken as supplements, including extract from the heart, spleen, pancreas and liver.
