How Many Hormones Are There In The Human Body?

by | Last updated: Jan 16, 2023 | Hypothalamus | 0 comments

You have more hormones in the human body than you realize. Let’s talk.

When I mention Hormones in the human body, what do you imagine I’m referring to? Sex hormones? Like estrogen, progesterone and testosterone? Or thyroid hormones? Adrenal hormones like cortisol and DHEA Insulin? Growth hormone? Melatonin?

I’m talking about all your Hormones. All of the above plus – leptin, grehlin, melanocyte stimulating hormone, erythropoietin, vasopressin, oxytocin, renin, angiotensin, parathyroid hormone.

And all your neurotransmitters – like dopamine, serotonin, acetylcholine, GABA, norepinephrine.

And all your immune factors – like interferon, interleukin. Your body produces are more than 200 hormones!

All the chemicals your body makes that act as messengers are essentially Hormones!

You see, that is what Hormones are – messengers. Hormones communicate to your cells, your tissues, your organs what’s going on in another part of your body as well as what’s going on outside of your body!

For instance, when the sun goes down the pink rays of dusk block the blue light of day. These pink light waves effectively turn on your pineal gland – a tiny organ in your brain- and tells it to start making Melatonin. So you can sleep. The light energy outside of your body affects hormonal production inside your body. Melatonin is the nocturnal messenger hormone that induces sleep and shuts down your daytime hormone activity, so your nighttime hormones can do their job. Like turning on your immune system to protect you from invasion, infection, and cancer. That’s why when you do not get enough sleep, you’re more likely to get sick.

Hormones tell your cells what to do.

Produce more energy. Make more enzymes. Reproduce and make new you. Go to sleep. Clean house. Get rid of invaders. Even tell cells when to die (especially cancer cells). All communication within your body is directed by your hormones. When you’re sick and tired, you’re experiencing hormonal miscommunication.

The secret to balancing your hormones, neurotransmitters, and immune factors is to support your hypothalamus. Why? Because your hypothalamus is the maestro of your symphony of hormones. 

Think of all your body as hardware and all your hormones as software. Your hypothalamus is your operating system. Your hypothalamus controls all your hormones, directs your neurotransmitter production and your immune function.

Supporting your hypothalamus is crucial to keeping your Hormones in Harmony!
