Adrenal glands are small, triangular-shaped glands located on top of both kidneys that produce hormones that help regulate your metabolism, immune system, blood pressure, and response to stress. The face points are located in the middle of a diagonal line that runs from the flare of the nostril to the corner of the lip. For the exact location see the diagram. It is right on the root of the teeth.
We hear a lot about inflammation and adrenal fatigue these days. Adrenal fatigue is the result of the adrenal glands being overworked from releasing adrenalin and cortisol; the two hormones associated with the stress response. When stress is chronic, cortisol levels remain high and are associated with brain fog, decrease immune function, weight gain and increased inflammation.
You can use this point in conjunction with stress management tools, nutrition, and supplements to support the adrenals and reduce inflammation. Inflammation is indicated with any diagnosis with the suffix of “itis’; arthritis, tonsilitis, colitis.
