What Is Your Endocrine System? How Is It Affecting You Now? And What Do Hormones Have To Do With It?
As you age, learning & knowing about your endocrine system function of hormones is essential to understanding how you will age gracefully. The endocrine system is made up of several types of glands, like your Hypothalamus, Pituitary, Adrenals, Thyroid, Parathyroid, and Pineal gland. They are in charge of running your entire body, physically, emotionally, sexually and mentally. For you to experience optimal health, you must have a well functioning endocrine system, and for that to occur, your hormones must be balanced.
As we mentioned, the endocrine system is made up of several types of glands that make and secrete hormones in the human body. A hormone is a chemical the body produces to control and regulate the activity within your cells and organs. Hormones play a critical part in every bodily function like growth, digestion, metabolism, reproduction, sex drive, and mood. Think of them as “messenger molecules” that give your cells and organs instructions. For example, insulin is a hormone that causes cells to absorb sugar (glucose), and glucagon helps burn the sugar out of the fat cell. Luteinizing hormone helps you produce more natural testosterone and sperm count, while DHEA serves as a steroidogenic metabolic intermediate in the formation of sex hormones like progesterone to testosterone and estradiol, which all affect the previous points made in regards to hormones. These are just a few of the hundreds of hormonal functions you have every day in your body.
So to relate this to actual events we might have heard of or could encounter, or might even be experiencing at this very moment: When a person is having a weight or energy problem, it is best that they get a complete thyroid checkup. If they are having a growth or recovery issue, the pituitary gland should be checked. If they are losing their hair, DHT hormone should be checked. If water retention or loss of sexual desire becomes an issue, testosterone and estrogen hormones should be checked. Your Hormones run your emotions as well, and if not balanced properly, it can bring about depression, anxiety, irritability, and agitation.
THE ENDOCRINE SYSTEM - HOW IT WORKS
Hopefully, by now, you are starting to see hormone optimization therapy as we do. If you don't, see it as tricking the hormonal circadian rhythm of the body into thinking that it is biologically younger than it is. Your hormone levels will be therapeutically optimized, and the body will not know the difference, and it can now run as smoothly as it did when in your twenties.
So, instead of letting your system slow down due to the old school aging process, why not with the help of medically backed up science and supervised therapy, get the precise hormones needed and optimized by a specialized physician in the field, like Dr. Rudolph Eberwein. Here is a doctor with real results, and someone who not only prescribes these type of treatments when necessary, but can speak to you from an experience level. Meet Dr. Rudolph Eberwein
