The endocrine system is comprised of glands which regulate the body by secreting hormones directly into the bloodstream. This important system is instrumental in regulating mood, growth and development, tissue function, metabolism, sexual function, and reproductive processes. If you suspect a problem or imbalance with your endocrine system, Dragonfly 360 Yoga & Wellness can help. Contact us at (317) 818-1800 today.
