Human Growth Hormones, Secretagogues, and Why They Matter

Human Growth Hormone – If It Is A Necessary Human Hormone, Why Is It So Actively Controlled?

For decades the US government has punished doctors for prescribing growth hormone for adults.  Doctors who practice anti-aging medicine are targeted by the government when they prescribe growth hormone for the diseases and symptoms of aging.  There can be only a few reasons for this: that the government wants us to become old and sick and die. Or they think GH is more dangerous than opioids—which it is not—because they limit the pharmaceutical companies who make it and punish doctors for prescribing even small numbers of prescriptions,  Or they are so invested in the investment of medical care for the elderly that they make more money when we are sick than when we are well?

If their mission is not to keep this miraculous drug / hormone from the public, then what might it be?

To understand the issue, it is important to understand this hormone: and how important it is to our health.

  • Human growth hormone is naturally made by the human body and is plentiful when we are young but disappears as we age.
  • Human growth hormone supplementation for aging is dramatic and shows striking improvements in health, ability to think, energy levels, prevention of disease, and the “shrinking “of the human body that accompanies aging and gives us the feeling of normal mood and wellbeing.
  • This hormone, along with testosterone are the two hormones that control “growth

** The human body is constantly in flux, growing and breaking down in a balanced homeostasis controlled by our hormones, with growth hormone and testosterone replacing cells that are old or damaged and building tissues like muscle and bone, and other hormones like thyroid and cortisol that break down tissues and old cells  for destruction.  When GH and low testosterone occur, the body stops growing as much as it breaks down and it makes it impossible to keep normal muscle mass, bone mass and brain function. 

Where is it made?

It is made in the pituitary gland in the brain and is stimulated by stimulatory hormones from the hypothalamus part of the brain.  It is regulated by feedback from the body.

What is the best way to replace our growth hormone?

  • Testosterone pellets
  • GH stimulating hormone—peptide hormone replacement
