Glandular Therapy refers to the use of glandular preparations usually from bovine or sheep source to improve or restore the function of a diseased or distressed organ. Glandular medicines are usually dried and ground-up glandular tissues that contain hormones as well as other important trace substances such as natural cell stimulators. The most common glandular medicines include ones made from adrenal, brain, thyroid, thymus, pituitary, kidney, liver, heart, pituitary, pancreas, prostate, spleen, and the uterus.
What is Glandular Therapy
Glandular therapy is a form of natural medicine that uses animal organs or glands to treat certain medical conditions. The theory behind it is that the hormones, enzymes, antibodies, and other substances found in the animal organ tissue will act as a catalyst for healing similar issues in humans.
This type of therapy has been used for hundreds of years worldwide but has recently become more popular due to advances in technology. While some studies have shown promise for using glandular therapy to improve certain health problems, further research is needed before definitive conclusions can be made. Studies show that this type of therapy can help with autoimmune diseases, reproductive health concerns, mental health issues, digestive disorders, and many other ailments.

Restore A Distressed or Diseased Organ with Glandular Therapy
Although Glandular Therapy dates back thousands of years, newer research suggests that the administration of glandular medications improves the function of the organ from which the extract was made. For example, during the last 15 years, several research centers have been studying the effect of thymus peptide extracts on the immune system as it is well known clinically that thymus extracts have immuno-modulatory effects. In Europe, thymus extracts have been a very popular addition to immunobiological cancer treatments.

To suggest the futility of animal research, antivivisectionists often point to preventive health measures such as diet. Ironically, animal experimentation has played and will continue to play a pivotal role in nutrition research.
