"If we should leave well enough alone, does that apply to all the hormone producing glands in our body or just some of them? Should we try to rev up the adrenals and not worry about the ovaries or rev up the thyroid but not worry about ... whatever.
Are some glands [and use the word loosely here for lack of a more specific one...whatever is producing hormones!] supposed to slow as we age and if so, why shouldn't we let 'nature' take it's course and not fiddle with it?"
Very sound and cogent point, Marci. I currently believe that ALL systems of the physical body can be held in optimum (or close to) functionality.
This "natural transitioning" is a faulty premise, imo.
