The hypothalamus does control love and pleasure.

The hypothalamus does cause aggression and also controls anger.

Two brain areas known as the amygdala and the hypothalamus are involved in the neural network of aggressive behavior.

The hypothalamus controls anger by stimulating the lateral hypothalamus which causes autonomic and somatic responses.

The hypothalamus does control anger and the lateral parts of the hypothalamus are involved in pleasure, rage and anger emotions.

The hypothalamus does control behavior and maintains homeostasis by controlling the autonomic, somatic and endocrine behavior.

And secondly the hypothalamus output also regulates the endocrine system, autonomic system and somatic behavior.

The hypothalamus does not control consciousness and thinking as consciousness and thinking are controlled by the cerebrum which is a part of the forebrain.

Your hypothalamus does control the body temperature, hunger and thirst, mood, sex drive, blood pressure and sleep.

The organ that the hypothalamus controls is the reproductive organs, kidneys, adrenal glands, thyroid gland, pituitary gland and the musculoskeletal system.

If the hypothalamus is damaged it can lead to dysfunctions of body temperature, growth, weight, water balance, milk production, emotions, and even sleep cycles.

Common symptoms of a damaged hypothalamus include.

Fatigue and/or insomnia.
Muscle weakness.
Frequent thirst and/or dehydration.
Unexplained weight loss or gain.
Changes in appetite or poor appetite.
High or low blood pressure.
Frequent urination.

The hormones that regulates the hypothalamus are GHRH, which stimulates GH release, and somatostatin, which inhibits GH release.

Essential oils that are good for the hypothalamus are Patchouli, Frankincense and Bay Leaf essential oils.

The hypothalamus is a structure which is deep within your brain.

The hypothalamus is the main link between your endocrine system and your nervous system.

And the hypothalamus keeps the body balanced in a stable state called homeostasis.

The hypothalamus is a small area in the center of the brain.

It helps produce hormones that regulate heart rate, body temperature, hunger, and the sleep-wake cycle.

Numerous dysfunctions may manifest as a result of hypothalamic injury, including body temperature, growth, weight, water balance, milk production, emotions, and even sleep cycles.

The hypothalamus responds to a variety of signals from the internal and external environment including body temperature, hunger, feelings of being full up after eating, blood pressure and levels of hormones in the circulation.

The hypothalamus ultimately affects the functions of the pituitary gland, thyroid gland, adrenal glands, kidneys, musculoskeletal system, and reproductive organs.

Many causes of hypothalamic dysfunction are treatable or reversible.

Most of the time, missing hormones can be replaced.

The hypothalamus plays a crucial role in many of our bodily functions which can be lost after a traumatic event such as a head injury or tumor.

Fortunately, many of these functions can be improved and restored with hormonal therapy.

The sooner you seek treatment, the higher the chances of improving hypothalamus damage.

Disorders of the hypothalamus and/or anterior pituitary can also result in hypopituitarism, including adrenal insufficiency, hypothyroidism, hypogonadism, growth hormone deficiency.

You can reset the hypothalamus by doing the following.

Increase Chromium Intake. Chromium is a trace mineral needed by the body in small amounts for healthy functioning.
Use Essential Oils.
Try Vitex (Especially If You're a Woman).
Eat Healthy Fats.
Get Enough Sleep and Reduce Stress.
Exercise Regularly.
