GLANDS AND ORGANS WHILE SINGING
A brief description of gland and organ functions helps one realize their importance to the body's health and the need for the previously described exercises. When our glands function properly, they provide everything necessary for the brain to function optimally in order to be used by our Real Self - our God within. (Read "The Miracle of the Glandular System", by Dr. O.Z.A. Hanish)
Pineal, or Master Gland - receives and sends light to the Pituitary, enabling it to function properly. The Pineal Gland gives our cells the ability to correspond to the different colors of the spectrum. It is cited as the gland of the Third Eye.
Pituitary Gland - the Commander-in-Chief, is extremely important in that it receives light from the Pineal gland enabling it to secrete hormones that regulate the activity of other glands, making it possible for them to release their hormones. Hormones produced by the pituitary gland include: ADH, which conserves the body's water; OXYTOCIN, which causes contraction of the uterus during pregnancy and ejection of milk during suckling; FSH, which prepares the follicles of the ovaries to produce female sex cells and stimulates the production of male sex cells by the testes; ICSH, which stimulates the ovaries to produce estrogenic hormones in the female and stimulates the testes to produce testosterone (male hormone); LTH, which stimulates the ovaries to produce progesterone and assists in stimulating the breasts to produce milk; TSH, which stimulates the thyroid to produce its hormones; ACTH, which stimulates the cortex of the adrenal glands to produce certain steroid hormones; and STH, which promotes growth and development of the entire body.
Lymphoid System - is woven by means of lymph capillaries and vessels throughout the circulatory system and bathes and cleanses the body of deadly toxins. The lymphoid tissues are designed to provide one of the body's defenses against germs and thus against disease. Lymph nodes are organs that play an important part in producing antibodies.
Thyroid Gland - controls the body's metabolic rate, essential for normal growth of muscles, bones, glands, organs, mental development and sexual maturity. The thyroid gland produces three hormones: Thyroxine and triiodothyronine increase the consumption of oxygen by most of the body's tissues, improve a person's ability to think, and are needed for normal growth and skeletal development in a child acting in conjunction with the growth-promoting hormone produced by the pituitary gland; Thyrocalcitonin influences the amount of calcium which circulates in the blood. It is antagonistic to the parathyroid hormone produced by the parathyroid glands and therefore helps in maintaining a precise balance between the amount of calcium in the blood and that which is stored in the body's bones.
Thymus Gland - is considered the key to our immune system. It is concerned with the development and maintenance of the lymphoid system. It has an important influence in the body's immune mechanism by which germs and other foreign substances are combated and by which transplanted tissues or organs may be rejected. Spiritually, this gland is a messenger carrier directly from our God-Center, through a series of battery-like connections, up through the back of the neck to the brain. This explains how we hear "the still small voice within."
Liver - has several functions to perform: storing vitamins, building fat molecules, combining amino acid molecules to form the kinds of proteins which the body needs, converting and storing carbohydrate, combating poisons. The liver produces bile, which is carried through a large duct to the inside of the duodenum. About halfway between the liver and the duodenum, the gallbladder is connected with the duct. The gallbladder serves as a reservoir of the bile. Bile helps to emulsify fat. Without this organ the body could sustain itself only a limited time.
Pancreas - secretes insulin, aids in digestion, and stimulates the liver in breaking down stored glucose. It controls the rate at which blood sugar is used by the cells through insulin and also produces pancreatic juice, which contains a number of enzymes. A tube-like duct from the pancreas to the inside of the duodenum carries the pancreatic juice. The enzymes act on carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
Spleen - filters foreign particles from the blood, forms antibodies, and filters old blood cells of the liver for use in producing bile. The spleen has the unique capacity to separating the worn-out red blood cells from those in good condition and disposing of them while keeping about 85 percent of the iron that they contain from being lost. The spleen also acts as an emergency organ. It contains a considerable amount of blood and, in a case of severe blood loss, the outer covering contracts strongly and forces extra blood into general circulation to help take the place of what has been lost.
Colon - needs periodic cleansing due to impacted putrefication of foods that can be absorbed by the body as deadly toxins. The exercises help break down the impactions. Warm water enemas are also recommended.
Adrenal Glands - cap the upper part of each kidney and produce steroids, some of which affect particularly liver cells, muscle cells, and fat cells to bring about the conversion of protein and fat to carbohydrate. Another hormone acts on the kidneys to aid in the elimination of potassium and the retention of sodium. These glands help maintain the body's fluid and mineral balance, provide energy, regulate blood-sugar levels and protein metabolism and produce hormones to aid the body's response to danger and stress.
Sacrum - protects the generative organs. The prescribed exercises
revitalize these organs, necessary to regenerate the body for youthful
appearance and activity.
