No, because hypothalamus is the control center of homeostasis without it, it would be impossible to live. Hypothalamus controls almost vital functions for survival. such as: respirations, digestion, blood pressures, heart rate, and among many other things.

It regulates metabolism. Plus it releasing hormones like TRH, which is needed for the thyroid to function

yes but the hypothalamus is instrumental in memory, so you would have nearly no long term memory, to see someone who has had this happen to them look up Clive Wearing.

No, because the hypothalamus manufactures the hormones for the posterior pituitary gland and it sends the instructions for the anterior pituitary gland to produce hormones.

No; normal, healthy individuals without a disease affecting their hypothalamus do not need to "reset" their hypothalamus with medications. Only in certain disease states do patients need to take medications to alter the function of the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus has exquisite control over many regulatory functions of the body. These include hunger, day/night cycles, basal metabolic rate, growth, fertility, pregnancy, sexual behavior, temperature, etc. In most individuals, the hypothalamus does a marvelously good job at regulating these functions without any need for medication. In fact, trying to "reset" the hypothalamus with medications when it isn't necessary can actually lead to more harm than good.
