HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINES FOR PITUITARY GLAND AFFECTIONS
The the pituitary gland, or hypophysis, is an endocrine gland about the size of a pea and weighing 0.5 grams (0.018 oz) in humans. It is a protrusion off the bottom of the hypothalamus at the base of the brain . The hypophysis rests upon thehypophysial fossa of thesphenoid bone in the center of the middle cranial fossa and is surrounded by a small bony cavity covered by adural fold The anterior pituitary (or adenohypophysis) is a lobe of the gland that regulates several physiological processes (including stress, growth, reproduction, and lactation). The intermediate lobe synthesizes and secretes melanocyte – stimulating hormone . The posterior pituitary (or neurohypophysis) is a lobe of the gland that is functionally connected to the hypothalamus by the median eminence via a small tube called the pituitary stalk (also called the infundibular stalk or the infundibulum).
Hormones secreted from the pituitary gland help control:- growth, blood pressure , certain functions of the sex organs thyroid gland , and metabolism as well as some aspects of pregnancy , child birth, nursing , water/salt concentration and the kidney , temperature regulation and pain relief
