Here’s the classic way of thinking about hormones.
- We know of all the hormones in the body.
- We know what all the hormones in our bodies do.
Now here’s the truth…
We are discovering new hormones and signaling molecules every day. We are also discovering new roles for hormones every day.
It is true that your hormones regulate the functions in your body, but they do so in concert, with dozens if not hundreds acting together to cause a certain effect, and to regulate and guide that particular effect.
In this way you can picture your hormones and the roles they play in your body like a spider web…
With all the hormones working together, depending on each other while at the same time creating checks and balances that allow for an intricate design to take….This design being your metabolism.
The thought that we can decide health or a health-outcome by any one hormone is ludicrous.
Don’t get caught up in the thinking that there are ‘good’ and ‘bad’ hormones in your body…It doesn’t matter if we’re talking fat loss, muscle building or disease prevention.
They all work together and they all serve a purpose.
