The Neuro-endocrine Theory of Aging first proposed in the 1960's by Prof. Vladimir Dilman, along with Dr. Ward Dean, is the apical information that enwreathes all the various aspects of kundalini theory and specifically deals with how we might recover receptor sensitivity and receptor numbers after an awakening. The Neuro-endocrine Theory of Aging is outlined in Ward Dean's articles at vrp.com in 21 papers.
"The central thesis of the Neuro-endocrine Theory is that the aging process is caused by an age-related loss of central (hypothalamic) and peripheral receptor sensitivity to inhibition by hormones and other signaling substances. This loss of hypothalamic sensitivity results in a progressive shifting of homeostasis--the body's regulatory system for maintaining internal balance--and altered levels of hormones, neurotransmitters, and cell signalers. These metabolic shifts are believed to cause aging and the diseases of aging." ~ Ward Dean M.D.
Dilman believed that the level of catecholamines (epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine) is one of the most important factors determining hypothalamic sensitivity and homeostatic balance. The Catecholamine receptors decline with age and are damaged both by the toxic effects of emotional repression, stress and the extreme chemistry like kundalini awakenings.
Three ways of enhancing catecholamine metabolism:
Following are some supplements Dr. Dean suggests for increasing receptor sensitivity. They all have multiple mechanisms of action, without toxicity: Ginkgo Biloba, Goat's rue, Acetyl-L-Carnitine, Cinnamon Extract, S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe), Phosphatidylserine, Acetyl-l-Carnitine (ALC), Tribulus terrestris, Chaste Berry, Forskolin, Chromium picolinate, Vanadyl Sulfate, Essential Fatty Acids (EFA), Tryptophan, (5-HTP), Blueberries, Spinach, Strawberries, Succinic acid, Calcium-2 AEP, Black Cohosh.
