Your Hypothalamus - the key to hormonal balance
Your Hypothalamus – the key to hormonal balance
Deep inside the brain, there is a small, yet vital organ known as the hypothalamus. This primitive little organ’s primary goal is to keep you alive. It controls the central nervous system which regulates sleep, sex, body temperature, food intake, and metabolism.
The hypothalamus controls your body through a series of chemical messengers called hormones. These hormones direct the actions of your body much like traffic lights direct the flow of traffic.
The Fight-or-Flight Response is an acute stress management reaction responsible to keep you away from harm. It is activated by stressors you perceive as potentially harmful.
Negative stress puts your body in constant fight or flight mode. When this happens, your hypothalamus – the part of your brain responsible to direct internal balance – produces excess hormones leading to hormonal imbalance.
Your metabolism - is the workhorse of the body
Your metabolism – is the workhorse of the body.
Just as a motor makes a car go, metabolism keeps the body alive. Daily functions required to sustain life such as breathing, and digestion are handled by the metabolic system.
This process produces a lot of toxins which must be eliminated from the body to maintain homeostasis or internal balance. Without proper body balance, a person becomes toxic, gains weight, ages faster than normal, and ultimately dies prematurely.
The types and amount of food you eat, your lifestyle habits and certain medical conditions can cause your metabolism to become “sluggish,” a condition known as Metabolic Fatigue.
Lymphatic System - Your key to health, beauty, and longevity
Lymphatic System – Your key to health, beauty, and longevity
The human body is designed to neutralize and eliminate toxins. Detoxification is the body’s natural way of getting rid of toxins and metabolic wastes.
- You are exposed to toxins from
- your environment (air)
- the foods you eat (wine, processed food, beer, smoking, a juicy hamburger or French fries, birthday cake with frosting, artificial sweeteners, foods high in fat, or sugar, coffee)
- your metabolic system
Your lymphatic system is the part of your immune system that keeps you healthy, fit, and young. How well you manage wastes and get rid of toxins depends on the condition of your lymphatic circulation.
The Lymphatic system is responsible to carry wastes to the liver to be neutralized then safely and effectively eliminated from the body through the lungs, skin, kidneys, and intestines (bowels).
Blood is pumped throughout your body by the heart. The lymphatic system does not have a pump to stimulate circulation. Lymphatic circulation is dependent on muscle contraction. The more you move, the more your body detoxifies. Conversely, the less you move your body, the more fluid, wastes, and toxins you accumulate.
- If you collect more wastes than your body can eliminate, you become toxic and your body’s ability to detoxify weakens and even more toxins build up. This is called Lymphatic Toxicity. Excess toxins are stored in fat cells, joints, muscles, the liver, even in the brain.
An excessive buildup of toxins
- Makes it difficult to lose fat
- Accelerates the aging process
- Weakens your immune systemSomeone who is experiencing lymphatic toxicity may have signs and symptoms such as
- Stiffness, aches, and pains
- Poor digestion
- Skin breakouts
- Body odor
- Poor memory
- Poor concentration
- Premature aging
- Weight gain and abnormal storage of fat
Metabolic waste management or detoxification (ridding the body of waste and toxins) is the most important thing you can do to stay healthy, sexy, fit, and young. Most people can maintain a healthy weight and slow the aging process by increasing lymphatic circulation and detoxifying often.
What is Post-Traumatic Homeostasis Syndrome (PTHS)
The reason why you gain weight, develop skin blemishes, age faster and get sick
Do you ever wonder why your body store fat in certain areas that just will not go away?
Are you tired of trying to get rid of cellulite or thigh fat without success?
What about those pesky resistant belly fat and loose skin?
Do you want to fit better in your clothes and feel more confident?
If you are struggling with resistant belly fat, loose skin, and cellulite, it may be because of a little-known condition called Post-Traumatic Homeostasis Syndrome or PTHS.
Post-Traumatic Homeostasis Syndrome is the name we use to explain what happens to your body as you age. Everyone is affected by this process. It begins early in life and progresses as you age. The degree to which you are affected by PTHS depends on how well you take care of your body, brain, and mind.
This condition affects body image, self-esteem, and Lifestyle. People with PTHS develop resistant fat, resistant belly fat, loose skin, and cellulite. It even affects your skin and how you age.
Five Stages of PTHS
Think of PHTS as the rate of wear and tear on your body. Your body must maintain internal balance in order to function properly, guard against diseases, and age at a normal rate. This internal balance is called homeostasis. Post-Traumatic Homeostasis Syndrome develops when your body goes off balance because it accumulates more wastes and toxins than it can manage. When this happens, you become toxic and chronic inflammation sets in.
There are five stages of PTHS.
- Stage Zero; you are healthy but experiencing symptoms of PTHS but showing few outward signs.
- Stage One; the signs and symptoms of PTHS are beginning to affect your lifestyle.
- Stage Two; PTHS is affecting the way you look, how you feel and fit in your clothes.
- Stage Three; you are experiencing most of the signs and symptoms of PTHS.
- Stage Four; PTHS has progressed to physical illness – metabolic syndrome, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chronic inflammation and more.
Your stage of PTHS is based on several factors. Your lifestyle, what you eat, how well you sleep, your activity level and how you manage stress, all contribute to your stage of PTHS. The more advanced your stage of PTHS the more time and effort you must commit to manage the condition and get your body back in balance.
What are the causes of PTHS?
Post-Traumatic Homeostasis Syndrome which is chronic internal imbalance is brought on by your body’s inability to effectively get rid of wastes, toxins, and excess hormones. High levels of toxins in your blood is dangerous to your health and wellness.
Because your body is built to maintain balance, it must get rid of toxins. When, for whatever reason, your body is unable to detoxify, it stores toxins, wastes products, and excess hormones in your fat cells. This is only a temporary fix. As you continue to build up more toxins, the condition becomes chronic. Your fat cells enlarge to create more storage space to store up toxins and other wastes products.
You may be exposed to toxins, wastes products, and excess hormones from
- the environment
- the foods you eat
- your metabolic system
- chronic stress
How your body develops PTHS
The hypothalamus is the part of your brain responsible to keep you alive by directing all the functions of your body.
Physical stressors, psychological trauma and daily life produce negative stress. Chronic stress triggers your hypothalamus to activate your body’s fight-or-flight response. This creates a cascade of hormonal responses preparing your body to protect itself from danger.
Chronic negative stress keeps the hypothalamus in a constant state of fight or flight flooding your body with hormones. Over time, the hypothalamus becomes tired (hypothalamic fatigue), causing hormonal imbalance.
Your metabolism regulates your body’s internal balance.
When your body is in Fight or Flight mode, your metabolism increases. Chronic negative stress forces your metabolism to work too hard eventually causing a condition called metabolic fatigue. A tired metabolism cannot function well. Food is not process properly, you eat more than you need, and you store more fat.
Your lymphatic system, part of your immune system, helps your body get rid of excess fluids, wastes, toxins, and other unwanted substances.
Chronic negative stress keeps your body in a constant state of fight or flight inundating your lymphatic system with hormones, excess fluids, wastes and toxins. Over time, this toxic buildup weakens your immune system. The lymphatic system becomes congested, and circulation is decreased.
Three main dysfunction happens when the body is in constant fight or flight:
- Hypothalamic fatigue and hormonal imbalance
- Metabolic fatigue and slow metabolism
- lymphatic toxicity and decreased lymphatic circulation
The combination of hormonal imbalance, slow metabolism, and lymphatic toxicity is what we call Post-Traumatic Homeostasis Syndrome or PTHS. The body is inflamed and out of balance.
The immediate aesthetic results of PTHS are
- weight gain and resistant fat
- cellulite and skin changes
- premature aging
Say No to Surgery
Individuals with history of surgery are at higher risk and have a much harder time with PTHS. This is because surgery permanently damages the lymphatic system by destroying lymphatic vessels. Often these unsuspecting individuals will have multiple surgeries in an attempt to fix the problem, when in fact, they are, unwittingly, making a bad situation worse.
What are the signs and symptoms of PTHS?
Three conditions predispose you to develop PTHS.
- Your environment
- Daily stress
Post-Traumatic Homeostasis Syndrome (PTHS) is commonly seen in individuals with history of
- Mental illness
- Overeating or poor nutrition
- Drug use
These events cause chronic stress and puts the body in a state of constant fight or flight mode leading to PTHS.
People with PTHS present with aesthetic complaints that may include:
- Inability to lose weight or maintain weight loss despite extreme dieting & exercising
- Formation of resistant fat that does not respond to diet & exercise
- Abnormal distribution of resistant fat in specific areas such as:
- arms, neck and shoulders (linebacker look)
- upper back (bra line)
- Love handles (Tire effect around the midsection)
- hips and thighs
- inner thighs (bulging)
⦁ Skin problems
⦁ Development or worsening of cellulite
⦁ Loose skin, sagginess
⦁ Premature aging
Other, often overlooked, symptoms include,
- Depression / anxiety
- Poor sex life
- Relationships problems
- Lack of focus
- Decrease productivity at work
- Loss of income
How your body naturally breaks down fat
To carry out all its functions, your body requires fuel. Even at rest, you need energy to stay alive. The least amount of energy you need to survive is determined by your Basal Metabolic Rate or BMR for short.
Since you are not eating all the time, your body must store energy from the foods you eat to use later. Your metabolism stores energy in the form of sugar called glycogen and fat called triglycerides. Sugar is stored in your liver, and muscle, while fat is stored in the fat tissue called adipocyte.
As you go about your daily activities, your body continuously draws from the stored energy to carry its functions. During times of prolonged activity or fasting, fat cells are broken down for fuel. This is called lipolysis.
How Your Body Breaks Down Fat
There are many reasons why your body breaks down fat. Sometimes it is because of extreme stress or a medical condition. Other times it is intentional like when you diet and exercise to lose weight. Whether the weight loss is intentional or not, your body follows a specific process to break down fat for energy.
For the sake of simplicity, we have grouped the body’s natural process of fat breakdown to 3 simple steps.
- Melt – Fat is released from the fat cell
- Move – Fat enters the lymphatic circulation is carried to the liver where it is converted to energy
- Flush – Fat byproducts and wastes are flushed out of your body through the kidneys and bowels
You can think of this 3-step process as Melt – Move – Flush.
What is Resistant Fat
No matter how much we exercise or limit calories, we are all genetically pre-disposed to accumulate fat in certain areas that just will not go away. This is because of resistant fat.
Let us face it; all the sit ups in the world will not get rid of your stubborn belly fat, love handles or cellulite on the buttocks, hips, and thighs.
Resistant fat or stubborn fat is fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. Resistant fat is caused by excess levels of abnormal estrogen, wastes, and toxins stored in your fat cells.
This is the reason why it is difficult for people with resistant fat to lose weight. Resistant fat or stubborn fat are often found in
Resistant fat in the in the lower body – Hip fat, saddle bags, inner thigh fat – is especially difficult to treat because of the associated congestion and fluid accumulation.
What Causes Excess Levels of Estrogen?
There are many causes of excess levels of estrogen in the body. Some of those include,
- Abnormal overproduction of estrogen
- Environmental exposure to xenoestrogens
- Estrogens from foods we eat
- Liver disease
When you have too much estrogen in your body, it creates a condition called Estrogen Dominance.
What Are the Symptoms of Estrogen Dominance?
Estrogen Dominance can cause
- Weight gain
- Abnormal distribution of fat (belly, hips & thighs)
- Mood swings, irritability
- Mental cloudiness
- Increased risk of breast and prostate cancer
If you think you may be experiencing estrogen dominance, consider the ZeddWellMD NEWSRx Metabolic Prescription designed specifically to manage Estrogen Dominance.

Your hypothalamus is responsible to keep track of and maintain your body’s fat level. Any time you lose fat without following your body’s natural process, the hypothalamus goes to work to restore your body fat to its previous level.
Because of this, any weight loss or fat loss procedure that does not follow the body’s natural process may give you temporary results but will eventually lead to more weight gain.
