The World of Hormones...

There are so many hormones we still do not know them all! They come from glands that are located in our head, our neck, our abdomen, and even between our legs. Many of these (glands) are major contributors to our health and our longevity. They enhance our way of being. They secrete chemical messengers called hormones. To understand hormones we must understand the glands that secrete them. To do this we will be using both narrative and links to other educational web sites. We know we run the risk of losing you from our web site by referencing other links, but at the Baucom Institute, we want you to be informed and knowledgeable. So, letís begin.
