The pituitary gland produces various hormones which influence and regulate the activity of the other endocrine glands viz. Thyroid, Para-Thyroid, Adrenal, Pancreas, Ovaries in female and Testis in male. In return this pituitary gland is intimately connected through the hypothalamus with the limbic system or the emotional brain. This inter-linking of the endocrine and the nervous system ultimately integrates all the functions of the human body in one composite force. Whether it is conscious or unconscious, volitional or the vegetative, rapidly changing or enduring, all these activities in the human body are integrated in one whole, through these neuro-endocrine systems.
The ancient sages and different books on Yoga by them depict that yoga helps immensely to improve the functioning of endocrine glands. Yogas like Nabhiyasana, Sirshasana, Sarvangasana and Mayurasana are prescribed to cure the imbalance of endocrinal system. These asanas have direct effect on the pituitary gland, parathyroid glands, thyroid glands, pancreatic and adrenal glands.
