Traditionally, the aging process has been considered physiologic and unavoidable, but it may not be necessary to accept the grim stereotype of aging as an unalterable process of decline and loss. Genetic factors, lifestyle, and societal investments in a safe and healthful environment are important aspects of successful aging.

The 4 Key mediators of Aging and Health are

  • HORMONES
  • NEUROTRANSMITTERS
  • ANTIOXIDATION SYSTEM
  • ANTIINFLAMMATORY SYSTEM








The 5 pauses of life define the milestones of Aging process

  • Menopause (When Estrogen and Progesterone levels fall in a woman)
  • Andropause (When Testosterone levels start falling in men)
  • Adrenopause (When Adrenal hormones start declining)
  • Somatopause (When Growth hormone starts falling)
  • Thyropause (When the Thyroid Hormones decline)








Hormones modulate almost all the features of health (being young)

  • Skin health and texture (Thyroid Hormones, Growth Hormone, Estrogen, DHEA, Melatonin)
  • Hairs (Thyroid Hormones, Growth Hormone , Estrogen, Testosterone, Melatonin)
  • Bone and muscle strength (Growth Hormone, Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone, DHEA, Vitamin D)
  • Mood, Memory and Brain health (Growth Hormone, Thyroid Hormones, Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone, DHEA, Melatonin, Vitamon D)
  • Libido, Orgasm and Sexual health (Testosterone, Estrogen, DHEA, Thyroid Hormones)
  • Fertility (Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone, Thyroid Hormones, Growth Hormone)
  • Metabolism, Lean body mass and Body weight (Ghrelin, Leptin, Adiponectin, GLP-1,Insulin, Thyroid hormones, Growth Hormone, Testosterone,DHEA, Progesterone)
  • Immunity (Melatonin, Cortisol , DHEA, Thyroid Hormones, Estrogen)
  • Sleep (Melatonin, Progesterone)
  • Appetite (Ghrelin, Leptin, Adiponectin, Insulin, Growth Hormone, Thyroid hormones, Testosterone, GLP-1, Glucagon , Cortisol)
  • Cardiac Health (Testosterone, Estrogen, Vitamon D, Thyroid hormones)

Hormones like Growth hormone, Testosterone, Estrogen, Thyroid, Cortisol, DHEA, Melatonin do play pivotal role in Aging process and their better understanding and expertise in their manipulations is definitely an array of hope in Antiaging Medicine. Although Aging does not simply result from a variety of hormone deficiency states, medical intervention in the processes of menopause, andropause, adrenopause,thyropause or somatopause may prevent or delay many aspects of the aging process.
