Hormones are like messengers to your nervous system telling them how to build your body.

Whatever your hormones tell your nervous system to do your body finds a way to do it.

When you look at how a person’s body changes at puberty, you can see the power of hormones. It has the power to change the shape of bones, determine the height, muscle size, skin tightness, to name a few. You know how a boy becomes a man and a girl becomes a woman and the face changes shape? That’s hormones. Powerful stuff.

Diet and exercise has minimal effect compared to these fat shredding and skin tightening hormones.

Let’s Go Over Some Definitions…

Hormones:

A chemical secreted by an endocrine gland or some nerve cells that regulate the function of a specific tissue or organ.

Gland:

An organ in your body that produces and secretes hormones.

Endocrine:

Means relating to anything having to do with hormone secretion inside the body.

Receptors:

A molecule or site on a cell surface that binds with a specific hormone molecule. It is what signals the body that that hormone has reached the cell. It triggers a series of actions to use that hormone.

Other Things Hormones Do…

  • Stimulation or inhibition of growth. This is growth of the whole body, or even growth of certain body parts, like reproductive organs, muscles, etc.
  • Mood swings. I’ll tell you something, if people really understood the effect hormones had on mental focus, moods, and emotional wellness, there would be no use of anti-psychotic or antidepressant drugs at all.
  • Induction or suppression of cell death. Every cell that makes up your body has a lifetime length. Some cells reproduce and “turnover” faster. Your hormones can extend the length of these lifetimes or shorten them. The reason some people look much older than they should and the reason some people look younger that they should, do so because of the balance of hormones.
  • Activation or inhibition of the immune system. There are hormones that directly affect your immune system almost like the drawbridge of a castle. They can make your body an indestructible fortress or a village with huts and tents ready to be invaded.
  • Preparation of the body for the environment. When you are involved in fighting, sex, fleeing, mating, and other activity, it is your hormones that cause the changes in your body.
  • Preparation of the body for a new phase of life. This refers to the major phases of your physical growth such as puberty, parenting, and menopause.
  • Control of the reproductive cycle. Your menstrual cycle, ability to create children whether you are a man or a woman, puberty to menopause, sperm production, ovum production, etc., are all controlled by your hormones.
  • Regulation of metabolism. This includes the speed of your metabolism, the production and utilization of enzyme activity, utilization of oxygen, and hydration.
  • Precursor to other hormones. A hormone may regulate the production and release of other hormones. There are hormones that combine with nutrients to produce another hormone.

Architect Of Your Body

Hormones are THE things that direct how your body is created.Obviously we are most interested in the effect hormones have on your weight.

Inability to Lose Weight

All hormones promote life. But when there are more aging hormones than anti-aging hormones there will be fat storage. If you solve your hormone imbalance, you will start to get your old body back.

There is a natural progression of growth and decay. Anabolism and catabolism are the two ends of the cycle of life.

But what I am presenting is an unnatural pull on all of society. The whole of society is being pulled to the catabolic age-accelerating direction. This is why death today is cause by heart attack and stroke.

“There are two basic sets of hormones:
Anabolic, Antiaging and Fat-Burning
And…
Catabolic Aging and Fat-Storing…”

I want you to move towards anabolism.
