What is anti-aging medicine? Anti-aging medicine blends traditional principles with the latest advances in medical research to treat and prevent the causes of aging.The hallmark of anti-aging therapy is prevention, with a focus on the identification of risk factors of disease, lifestyle improvements, and hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
Anti-aging medicine seeks to prevent disease and maintain health.
Through attention to diet, exercise, nutrition, stress reduction, and HRT, men and women may attain remarkable benefits in health. Many adults see the vitality of their parents slowly dissipating, as they progress toward debility and old age. They know there has to be an alternative path.
Is anti-aging medicine vanity medicine? In a sense, yes. We all desire to look, as well as feel, at our optimal level.Anti-aging therapy offers benefits in physical appearance-decreased fat, increased muscle, better skin. Sexual benefits, specifically with testosterone replacement therapy, are pronounced.
Youth is a blessing. Like many things of great value or beauty, its worth is not fully appreciated until it is gone. Anti-aging medicine seeks to restore the pleasures of youth, and to extend the years of enjoyment of such pleasures.
Growth hormone, also known as somatotropin, is the largest protein hormone of about 191 amino acids that is synthesized and secreted by cells called somatotrophs in the anterior pituitary gland. It is a major participant in control of several complex physiologic processes, including growth and metabolism.
A critical concept in understanding growth hormone activity is that it has two distinct types of effects:
Direct effects are the result of growth hormone binding its receptor on target cells. Fat cells (adipocytes), for example, have growth hormone receptors, and growth hormone stimulates them to break down triglyceride and suppresses their ability to take up and accumulate circulating lipids.
Indirect effects are mediated primarily by an insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), a hormone that is secreted from the liver and other tissues in response to growth hormone. A majority of the growth promoting effects of growth hormone is actually due to IGF-1 acting on its target cells.
Keeping this distinction in mind, we can discuss two major roles of growth hormone and its minion IGF-1 in physiology.
Growth is a very complex process, and requires the coordinated action of several hormones. The major role of growth hormone in stimulating body growth is to stimulate the liver and other tissues to secrete IGF-1. IGF-1 stimulates proliferation of chondrocytes (cartilage cells), resulting in bone growth. Growth hormone does seem to have a direct effect on bone growth in stimulating differentiation of chondrocytes.
IGF-1 also appears to be the key player in muscle growth. It stimulates both the differentiation and proliferation of myoblasts. It also stimulates amino acid uptake and protein synthesis in muscle and other tissues.
Growth hormone has important effects on protein, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. In some cases, a direct effect of growth hormone has been clearly demonstrated, in others, IGF-1 is thought to be the critical mediator, and some cases it appears that both direct and indirect effects are at play.
Protein metabolism: In general, growth hormone stimulates protein anabolism in many tissues. This effect reflects increased amino acid uptake, increased protein synthesis and decreased oxidation of proteins.
Fat metabolism: Growth hormone enhances the utilization of fat by stimulating triglyceride breakdown and oxidation in adipocytes.
Carbohydrate metabolism: Growth hormone is one of a battery of hormones that serves to maintain blood glucose within a normal range. Growth hormone is often said to have anti-insulin activity, because it suppresses the abilities of insulin to stimulate uptake of glucose in peripheral tissues and enhance glucose synthesis in the liver. Somewhat paradoxically, administration of growth hormone stimulates insulin secretion, leading to hyperinsulinemia.
Production of growth hormone is modulated by many factors, including stress, exercise, nutrition, and sleep. However, its primary controllers are two hypothalamic hormones, growth hormone –releasing hormone (GHRH), which stimulates its release, and somatostatin (SKIF), which inhibits its release.
HGH is the ultimate anti-aging therapy. It effects almost every cell in the body, rejuvenating the skin and bones, regenerating the heart, liver, lungs, and kidneys, bringing organ and tissue function back to youthful levels.
It is an anti-disease medicine that revitalizes the immune system, lowers the risk factors for heart attack and stroke, improves oxygen uptake in emphysema patients, and prevents osteoporosis.
It is under investigation for a host of different diseases from osteoporosis to post-polio syndrome to AIDS.
It is the most effective anti-obesity drug ever discovered, speeding up your metabolism to youthful levels, reshaping your body by selectively reducing fat from your waist, abdomen, hips, and thighs, and at the same time increasing lean muscle.
It revives sexuality and potency in older men. It is cosmetic surgery in a bottle, smoothing out facial wrinkles, restoring the elasticity, thickness, and contours of youthful skin, reversing the loss of extracellular water that makes old people look like dried-up prunes.It has healing powers that close ulcerated wounds and regrow burned skin. It is the secret ingredient in the age-defying bodies of weight lifters and it enhances exercise performance, allowing you to do Higher-intensity workouts for a longer duration. It reverses the insomnia of later life, restoring the “slow wave” or deepest level of sleep.
It is a mood elevator,lifting spirits,bringing back a zest for life that many people thought was lost forever.The latest research shows that it holds promise for the treatment of that most terrifying disease of aging-Alzheimer’s. The list of benefits seems to grow with each new study.
Growth hormone therapy is not just for those who are seriously deficient in the hormone. As studies point out that “in middle and late adulthood all people experience a series of changes in their body compositions”, including loss of lean muscle, increase in body-fat, and atrophy of skeletal muscle, liver, kidney, spleen, skin, and bone. These changes have been considered unavoidable results of aging. The things we associate with aging-from middle age spread to being shrunken,bent-over, frail, and weak-may be due wholly, or in part, to the decline of growth hormone.
There is no reason to wait until you are a senior citizen to enjoy the benefits of HGH replacement. In fact there is every reason to believe it is better to start at a much younger age when the levels of your own hormone have already begun to decline, maybe we should be giving human growth hormone replacement therapy earlier instead of attempting to treat tissues that have seen little or no growth hormone for decades. If you look at data, people have so-called elderly levels by the age of 40.
Being shrunken, bent-over, frail, and weak is what will happen if you let nature take its course. Dietary changes and exercise can delay or prevent some of the results of aging, but actual age reversal requires putting back what was lost over the years. If we are to live long and prosper, we need to have available to us the substances that will make our later years as vital and important as our earlier ones.
In accounts of the men and women who are taking Hgh this type of life extension is happening. If you go by how you feel when you wake up in the morning, awake and eager ready to start the day, rather than feeling lie you have to drag yourself thru another day, in terms of what you can accomplish, using growth hormone is like being handed 20 years.
With growth hormone therapy, there is no longer any reason to feel that you are too old to do anything you have dreamed of doing. Growth hormone therapy can give you back what nature has taken away. By replenishing your supply of growth hormone, you can recover your vigor, health, looks, and sexuality. For the first time in history we can intervene in the aging process, restore many aspects of youth, Resist disease, greatly improve your quality of life and possibly even extend your life span.
