Hormones are temporary messengers that affect our bodies in a large array of ways. There are hormones that: induce hunger, shut-off hunger, regulate heart beat, affect sexual function, handle pregnancy, create energy, affect digestion, functions of thyroid parathyroid and adrenal glands, produce feelings of happiness or highs, induce sleepiness, regulate cell growth, how the body stores energy, how much salt it stores, growth and developmental characteristics, the rate that calories are burned, and so much more. Essentially, hormones serve as messengers that control and coordinate activities throughout the body.
Hormones can affect body functions close to where they are produced and released, far from their release location, or anywhere in between this range. Each type only acts upon certain organs or tissues.
Depending on how close or far they have effects, and if they act upon several areas or just one specific local, they have been classified differently. There are endocrine, exocrine, paracrine, and autocrine.
Endocrine is the name given to those that are released into the body system without ducts, and can travel all over the body, depending on each function.
Exocrine system releases it’s hormones through ducts.
Paracrine signaling is a form of cell signaling in which the target cell is near the signal-releasing cell, altering the behavior or differentiation of those competent cells.
Autocrine signaling is a form of signaling in which a cell secretes a hormone or chemical messenger that binds to autocrine receptors on the same cell, leading to changes in the cells.
Juxtacrine signaling is a type of intercellular communication that is transmitted via oligosaccharide, lipid, or protein components of a cell membrane, and may affect either the emitting cell or cells immediately adjacent, and they require physical contact between the two cells involved.
In addition to the specialized endocrine organs mentioned above, many other organs that are part of other body systems, such as bone, kidney, liver, heart and gonads, have secondary endocrine functions. For example the kidney secretes endocrine hormones such as erythropoietin and renin.
Most types of hormones are produced only under certain conditions. For example: the uterus and placenta produce hormones only when pregnant. Also, the skin produces calcidiol, which turns vitamin D into vitamin D3, only when it is receiving vitamin D, such as during sun exposure. And the parathyroid releases parathyroid hormone, which causes an increase in calcium in the blood stream to regulate it, especially useful when one has eaten acidic foods and the pH of the blood has started to become acidic, a situation that causes instant death.
A number of glands that signal each other in sequence are usually referred to as an axis. An example is the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.
No wonder our hormones can easily get out of wack - and make us feel really off our game!
So we can see that proper hormone function within the body is extremely important. When a system goes haywire, such as in diabetes miliitus, thyroid disease, and obesity, the effects are far reaching, leading to discomfort, misery, failing of body systems, and even death.
When one’s hormones are out of balance, the body will try other mechanisms to counteract the effects, throwing other hormones out of balance. This could be manifest as a ravenous appetite, low energy, dry skin, lack of appetite, poor circulation, foggy thinking, inability to remember things, lack of focus, sleep disruption, narcolepsy, and so much more.
Through using the IQS™ System, we are able to pinpoint exactly which hormones are out of balance, and find a dilution when it was in balance, to help balance one’s hormones. Many times, while testing, I’ve gotten responses through the clients’ meridian points for changes to only some of the hormones out of balance. This has been interpreted, because of the pattern we’ve seen, to mean that the remainder of the hormones which are also out of balance, are compensatory in nature, therefore will be rebalanced by the body, once the main stressing hormones have been realigned to their proper balance.
It’s very easy to see which hormones are out of balance, while doing an endocrine system survey on the IQS™ System. Then prioritizing the ones that are stressed, going from those of lowest ‘value’ on the readings received into the computer, meaning they have been chronically stressed, and then using out of balance hormones that have the highest readings into the computer, meaning they are more temporarily stressed, we are able to assess the proper order for realignment.
Once these proper balancing dilutions are ‘imprinted’ into an APT™ (Analogous Personal Transcript), the new reminder messages for the innate intelligence’s focus can be directed to make changes to the hormone and hormone gland functions. Within two weeks most clients have noted great improvement in whatever functions have been out of balance and giving them discomfort or pain previously.
The other hormones that have been out of balance, as secondary change to the initial out of balance problems, usually correct themselves from the body and innate intelligence. Still, it has proven valuable and helpful to have our clients return two weeks later to run another scan, to see what other hormones may still be out of balance and need an APT™ of their own, for rebalancing.
This program has shown to be helpful with weight loss and weight management, as well. Appetite, satiation, fat storage, and fat metabolism are all regulated by hormones. Balancing these hormone sets helps greatly in changing the body patterns and reducing excess fat stores.
Roy Curtin, Ph.D is the man who developed this system for using APTs™ to give the directed attention for the new balanced programming to the clients. Through my use of the IQS™ System and these APTs™, I’ve been able to help many of my clients with their out-of-balance hormone issues, and help their bodies restore their proper functions. These are all available through www.i2iNetwork.com . Out of balance hormones, and their deleterious affects, afflict millions of people around the earth. Other practitioners, like myself, can help many of their patients and clients to recover their proper hormone functions and restore their own health, with fast, simple hormone scans, using the IQS™ System.
