Yoga & Womanhood

Hypothalamus controls the hormones of pituitary, which in turn controls ovaries. This is called Hypothalamopitutaryovarian axis.

Hypothalamus is the head quarter of limbic System. It is a part of brain which receives all the sensory information from thalamus & gives rise to emotions. These emotional reactions give rise to our actions.

Hypothalamus is constantly in communication with cerebral cortex. It receives sensory information, for vision,smell,hearing,taste,and fine touch form body. Its’ function is to analyze it, store it, learn from it. If our cerebral activity is over functioning, it sends different signals to hypothalamus, disturbing its’ function.

Thus there is a to & fro communication between both of them.

Emotions like fear, anxiety, insecurity, frustration offen lead to hypothalamic dysfunction.
