regulator

 [reg´u-la″tor]
in the adaptation model of nursing, one of two major internal processing subsystems by which an individual adapts to or copes with internal and external environmental stimuli.

These inputs are transformed into perception, thereby linking the regulator subsystem to the cognator subsystem.

Patient discussion about regulator

Q. My hormones are always out of wake. How can I regulate my periods? I like to try with herbs. I am 32 years old and I have 2 children. After my second delivery I had irregular periods. I have been on BC most of my life to regulate my periods but I don't like them. And I feel sick. My physician said that my thyroid is low but within normal range. My hormones are always out of wake. How can I regulate my periods? I like to try with herbs.

A. My dear your decision is good. There is nothing to feel sick; most of the women are having this problem. My daughter had the same problem like you; we tried so many meds but in vain. At last we tried with herbal meds really it is amazing, after that she had regular period. Now she is happy. I suggest you to try with herbal meds. Good Luck.
