In one of the ancient scriptures of India, it has been clearly stated – know thyself.  Of course, In order to do that you need to contemplate or meditate, for which you need to have a clam mind.  In this fast paced world where patience seems a myth, the rapid demand on the hormones can affect your emotions and the hormones may retaliate.  This interdependence and interaction between your mind and your hormones does have an impact on your bodily functions and well being.  You may be surprised to realize that every thought or deed is either preceded and/or followed by a change in one or another hormone.  It is time to reflect and achieve the balance needed to peacefully co-exist within your own personal universe.  Bon voyage…………….
