Hi Susan,

Check the web under:

ACTH which controls cortisol release
GI Track

Research by the Institute of HeartMath created
techniques that control the balance in the Sympathetic and
Parasympathetic, two main branches of the Autonomic Nervous System.

Relatively new understandings of the importance of coherent signals going
up the Vega nerve (that goes from the heart to the brain) that are part of
managing the negative effect of the "perception" of a stressful situation.

Hey, Important stuff you are getting into.

Take care,

> - One, the Adrenal Medulla releases epinephrine and norepinephrine.
> - Two, the Adrenal Cortex releases glucocorticoids, including cortisol.
>I am not even certain if these two are correct. Please Help!
