Hormones

The hypothalamus, located in the brain, controls the release of hormones from various glands in the body.

As we age the hypothalamus loses its ability to regulate these hormones. Thus the secretion of many of these hormones declines after age 30-35 and their effectiveness is also reduced due to the receptors down-grading.

One of the main reasons for the hypothalamus loss of regulation may be due to damage from cortisol. It is one of the few hormones known to increase with age.

We have known that chronic stress causes a raised cortisol level which damages the hypothalamus and other brain structures.

This is why we think a person's particular worldview is essential to their wellbeing and why it is so important to take hormones, nutraceuticals and select pharmaceuticals to maintain brain health as this organ is truly the conductor of the entire neuro-endrocrine sympathy played each day in our lives.

Hormones are the real "juice" of life, where many men and women are revitalized in as little as 6-8 weeks after beginning hormonal replacement. Trust your experience and you will soon be convinced of the benefits of hormonal replacement therapy (HRT).

Once hormones are restored to their youthful levels (age 30-35), balance is reinstated, receptor site sensitivity improved, and a greater sense of wellbeing and vitality is felt by the client. This hormonal replacement therapy must be done under the supervision of a physician.

Slowing the aging process is directly related to improved hormonal control, and as mentioned previously, the key is to use your diet, to control insulin and the eicosanoid hormones. In addition your longevity program may warrant you taking certain hormones, including:

Hormones**

1. Melatonin: This hormone is excreted by the pineal gland during sleep, and Melatonin production has been shown to decline as we age. Melatonin's main use has been shown to regulate sleep and circadian rhythms, and allow the individual to feel more refreshed and alert the following day.

2. Thyroid: The thyroid gland produces the hormone thyroid, used to regulate certain body functions. Many people are affected by an over or under active gland, so hormonal treatment is sometimes necessary.

3. Thymus: The thymus is a central organ in the development and maintenance of T cells. The thymus plays a key role in protecting the immune system and slowing the process of aging.

4. Tri-Estrogen: Estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) can help support health by preventing mood swings, slowing bone loss, restore libido and vaginal lubrication, and a host of other maladies associated with menopause.

5. Progesterone: Women often use progesterone cream for menopause, especially to counter-weight hormone replacement therapy; however, many forget the importance of progesterone.

6. Testosterone Precursors: Precursors of testosterone can help provide short bursts as well as long-term boosts of testosterone.

7. Pregnenolone: An important prohormone, pregnenolone is the steroid hormone involved in the formation of the following steroids: progesterone, glucocorticoids, androgens, and estrogens.

8. Growth Hormone: After the age of thirty, muscles atrophy partly due to your genetic make up and partly due to lifestyle, such as poor diet and lack of exercise. Since the body slows the production of growth hormone, supplementation may be an alternative.

9. DHEA: Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is another steroid hormone that is produced from cholesterol by the adrenal gland.
