Your body as an orchestra
You could look at your body as being an orchestra. An orchestra is made up of various instruments, however if one of those instruments is not present it has a huge impact on the music the orchestra is playing. For example if the violins are not present then the base and cello are also not going to sound right.
Our Bodies function in the same way as an orchestra, if one part of our bio chemistry is not functioning then our body is not able to function properly and can have a huge impact on the bio chemistry processes within our body.
