  • How do hormones play a role in the aging process?

    This is the most important question. Earlier it was thought that our hormones decline because we age, but now it is confirmed that we age because our hormone decline.

    The Neuro-endocrine system is a complex network of chemicals from the nervous system and the endocrine system that governs the release of our hormones and other vital body processes.

    With advanced age, lower levels of hormones can have disastrous effects on the way our bodies function.

    The Growth hormone, Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone, DHEA, Melatonin and Thyroid all have specific functions and activities both alone and in conjunction with other hormones. The shortage of these hormones accelerates the aging process.

    Hormones are vital for repairing and regulating our bodily functions and when aging causes a drop in hormone production, it causes a decline in our body's ability to repair and regulate itself.

    Moreover hormone production is highly interactive. The drop in production of any one hormone is likely to have and affect on the whole mechanism, signaling other organs to release lower levels of other hormone.

    Thus, hormone replacement/Corrective therapy, a frequent component of any anti-aging treatment, helps to reset the body's hormonal clock and so can reverse or delay the effects of aging.

    If our hormones are being produced at youthful levels, the cells of our bodies are stimulated to be metabolically active, thus, we stay young.

The symptoms of Aging and Hormonal imbalances are so similar that the fact that hormonal imbalance brings aging prematurely cannot be ignored.
