The pituitary gland is an endocrine gland found at the base of the brain. This gland is responsible for controlling all of the other hormone-producing endocrine glands of the body. The human growth hormone, also known as HGH, is produced by the pituitary gland from the time of birth. As a person ages, the production of this hormone often declines, leading to health issues such as memory loss, accumulation of excess body fat, and decreased organ functioning. By finding ways to stimulate the pituitary gland, many of these health issues may be able to be lessened or even avoided.

Exercise is one of the easiest and most natural ways to stimulate the pituitary gland. A regular exercise program does not have to be strenuous or uncomfortable. The most important thing to consider when developing an exercise routine is to creatively find ways to keep the body moving. Simple lifestyle changes such as using stairs instead of the elevator or parking a little farther away from the door at the grocery store can help increase exercise and maintain optimal health. Yoga involves gentle stretching exercises and can also help to promote relaxation and an overall feeling of well-being.

Maintaining a proper body weight often helps to stimulate the pituitary gland and increase production of HGH. Eating a healthy, balanced diet as directed by a medical professional is the safest way to achieve and maintain a proper body weight. The combination of a healthy diet and exercise work better than either practice alone.

Increasing the amount of protein in the diet is believed to help stimulate the pituitary gland. A person considering this method should consult a medical professional to make sure that increasing protein levels is a healthy choice. For instance, people with a medical condition such as kidney disease may need to actually decrease protein intake in order to prevent further kidney damage.

Some herbal supplements are thought to increase pituitary gland stimulation. Some of these supplements include ginseng, alfalfa, and gotu kola. It is important to note that some herbal medications may interfere with prescription medications a person may be taking. It is important to consult a medical professional before beginning any new medication, even if the medication is herbal in nature or purchased over the counter without a prescription. If natural methods are not successful, the healthcare provider may be able to prescribe medications that can be used to help stimulate the pituitary gland.

Does stimulation of the pituitary gland help for increasing height and at what age?

You might want to check with a medical professional before replying to this thread, just to make sure it's not harmful to your health.

My sister has the problem of "no detectable abnormality in the pituitary gland" and she is not like other women. A doctor advised us we need to give her these injections for up to one year. Nordiplropin or saizen are the names of the two injections.

Can anyone help me? Without this injection, how can we develop the pituitary gland? These injections are very expensive. Can anyone advise me where I can able get these injections easily?

When it comes to exercise, I find that getting my heart beat up to a certain amount, then holding it there for about 20 minutes at a time, once per day seems to make everything come right. It could be partially because it is stimulating the pituitary gland.

I mean, it's great for weight loss and all that. But, I find it balances my mood, my appetite, my concentration, and everything else as well.

Usually I just try to go for a walk with a 20 minute run incorporated into it each morning or evening. If I can't make it outside for a run, I try to do a vigorous yoga routine, like the salute to the sun instead.

I get antsy if I don't do it, and then I feel sluggish all day.

I wonder if eating more protein stimulates the pituitary gland because it helps with weight loss, or because of the protein itself.

Protein can make you feel full for longer and people who eat more protein tend to lose weight anyway, so either way it is a good idea if you want to stimulate your pituitary gland.

If you are having what you suspect are pituitary gland problems though, you should check with your doctor as the symptoms could be something else.
