Find out how the hypothalamus works and why we
get fat if it doesn’t work. Benefits when it does work properly
Very Important Read.
It is often really difficult to come to terms with the fact that no matter how hard you try to lose weight it seems to be a never-ending battle. Once you understand its not all about self control and that there are physiological reasons for weight gain it is much easier to understand what Dr Simeons understood when he created the HCG diet .He knew the hypothalamus gland had a huge influence over how weight was managed. When you understand the function of the hypothalamus you will understand why the Smart drops work. “They are a homeopathic hypothalamus optimiser.”
Functions of the Hypothalamus:
The hypothalamus is the master gland… it secretes the hormones that control the pituitary gland which secretes the hormones that control the endocrine glands.
The endocrine system consists of glands that, through the secretion of hormones, regulate just about every aspect of your body in very specific ways. Almost every cell and organ of the body is regulated by the endocrine system.
It controls your height, your weight, your eye color, and your waistline everything that determined our set point weight at birth. We were designed to be a certain height and a certain weight and we destroyed and basically manipulated our set point and pushed it out of whack by making poor eating choices and having a western diet.
Here are just a few of its functions:
• Hormonal/neurotransmitter regulation’ • Mood & behavior functions
• Sleep cycles
• Hunger and salt cravings
• Body temperature regulation • Bladder function
• Ovarian function
• Pituitary gland regulation • Blood pressure regulation • Feeding reflexes
• Water preservation
• Testicular function
• Heart rate
What causes its dysfunction?
The function of these vital systems can be altered by various causes ranging from toxic chemicals , MSG ,food mishandling, dependency & substance withdrawal, stress or psychological responses to simple functional deficits, hyperactivity or learning disabilities. Unfortunately, Hypothalamic function also becomes impaired with age, so as we grow older the Hypothalamus needs support to maintain optimum performance
The Hypothalamus and Weight Management:
It appears that almost everything the Hypothalamus does is related in some way to weight management and controlled weight loss. Simply put, when the Hypothalamus is “broken,” food becomes increasingly more important, but increasingly more unfulfilling. We end up never feeling satisfied with the foods which we have eaten, gradually eating more and more to try to compensate for whatever is lacking!
From a metabolism stand point the Hypothalamus not only governs the motivation to eat, stimulating hunger and appetite, but most importantly how eating is to be experienced and reflected upon, whether it is satisfying or not, and how deep the satisfaction occurs. This gives us an idea as to just how important healthy Hypothalamic function really is!
When the Hypothalamus is not working correctly, when it’s not functioning up to par, the wrong neuro-signals are generated by the brain and the wrong neuro-messages are received by the brain, resulting in an inaccurate integration of all our sensory input, leading to faulty perceptions which are very subtle but nonetheless powerful, making us feel empty, deprived and emotionally “unsatisfied.” Dysfunction of the hypothalamus often leads to depression, hyperactivity, abnormal responses to stress, or disturbances in brain functioning.
Some of the physical aspects of Hypothalamic dysfunction are:
Disordered sleep, multiple hormonal dysfunctions, Immune dysfunction, and Autonomic dysfunction, Altered body temperatures.
Benefits of The Hypothalamus working properly
