Stress, Inflammation, Brain, Heart and the HPA Axis

Listen to Dr. Tom Roselle DC discuss stress, inflammation, brain, heart and the HPA Axis. The hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis which is the body’s central stress response system.

The hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis (HPA Axis) is a complex set of direct influences and feedback interactions among three components: 1.) the hypothalamus, 2.) the pituitary gland (a pea-shaped structure located below the thalamus), and 3.) the adrenal (also called “suprarenal”) glands (small, conical organs on top of the kidneys).
