First I want to thank you for your comments! I was completely unaware of this research you mentioned Linda, thank you very much. The reason why I started to think of HGH is my experience with pregnancies.
In my second pregnancy I experienced great improvement, and I think it is not only to thank to the suppression of the immune system but primarily to the increased presence of the growth factor because of the baby. I am aware of the immune system stimulation but LDN does it too, and still so many people benefit on it. I am not sure if the imuunosuppresion is so beneficial to us – yes, on short term it certainly is, I experienced it too, but a long term benefit is doubtable I think.
To exclude my doubts about immuno- suppression during pregnancy I also tried the Estriol – pregnancy hormone which suppress immune system during the pregnancy – no improvement at all. Neither my deterioration stopped. (more information on Estriol http://www.neurologyreviews.com/nov02/n ... triol.html
So I assume the only reason I experienced such a great improvement during my second pregnancy is the growth hormone.
The difference between HGH en IGF-1 is that HGH stimulates production of IGF-1.
In addition to increasing height in children and adolescents, HGH has many other effects on the body:
Increases calcium retention, and strengthens and increases the mineralization of bone
Increases muscle mass through the division of muscle cells
Increases protein synthesis
Stimulating the growth of all internal organs excluding the brain
Plays a role in fuel homeostasis
It stimulates the immune system
Children with the growth problems are medicated with HGH.HGH is also used for medical purpose in maintaining muscle mass in wasting due to AIDS.
And look what I found on the Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Growth_hormone
Uses that are controversial include
GH treatment for remission of Multiple sclerosis
GH treatment to reverse effects of aging in older adults (see below)
GH treatment to enhance weight loss in obesity
GH treatment for fibromyalgia
GH treatment for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis
GH treatment for idiopathic short stature
GH treatment for bodybuilding or athletic enhancement
I am planning to use 2 IU of HGH, not more than that. This dosage is recommended for the reverse effects of aging. Top sportiest use up to 12IU a day, which is way to much… I am convinced that the dosage makes great difference.
