The medical specialty of endocrinology involves the diagnostic evaluation of a wide variety of symptoms and variations and the long-term management of disorders of deficiency or excess of one or more hormones. The diagnosis and treatment of endocrine diseases are guided by laboratory tests to a greater extent than for most specialties. Many diseases are investigated through excitation/stimulation or inhibition/suppression testing. This might involve injection with a stimulating agent to test the function of an endocrine organ. Blood is then sampled to assess the changes of the relevant hormones or metabolites. An endocrinologist needs extensive knowledge of clinical chemistry and biochemistry to understand the uses and limitations of the investigations.
Ayurveda (Ayur - Veda) is an ancient healing system based on wisdom traditions which originated in India over 5,000 years ago and focuses on the balance of body, mind and consciousness. Now recognized as an important integrative tool, its use is rapidly spreading throughout the United States and other Western countries. It manages client illness at multiple levels by addressing other causes such as stress, lifestyle, and emotional patterns. Its ability to reduce symptoms and sometimes reverse imbalances has captured the interest of the scientific world due to positive findings, which have been documented by various evidence-based research programs.
