The Dangers Of Anti-Aging Medicine

Aug 4, 2008
Due to technology and medicine, there are many ways for people to reverse the signs of aging. Plastic surgery procedures and anti-aging medical injections are becoming increasingly popular as more and more people look for anti-aging solutions.

Anti-aging medicine injections have become known as "a fountain of youth in a syringe." These shots are a chemical cocktail of bits and pieces found normally floating around the human metabolism.

The ingredients are usually:
* Human Growth Hormone (HGH)
* Testosterone
* Progesterone
* Estrogen
* DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone)

Sometimes herbs will be added. But there are dangers of using anti aging medicine, just as there are dangers involved in any medicinal therapy.

We know so little about the abilities of hormones and how they communicate with each other. What we don't know makes the dangers of anti-aging medicine injections almost inevitable. Who knows what will show up in thirty years when the first people to have this done are exposed to any potential long-term effects.

We Are All Individuals

Just as there are dangers with taking herbal medicines, there are dangers involved with taking anti-aging medicine injections. You have to take into account every medical condition, every medication, every supplement and every condition you are prone to get before taking anti-aging medicine. There is no "one size fits all" with any medicine.

The ingredients used in the medical injection are usually NOT tailored for each individual, but are made en masse. These are serious and often overlooked dangers of anti-aging medicines. Just because the shots seemed to help one person does not mean they will help you. On the contrary, they could trigger an allergic reaction or worse.

Anti-Aging Medicine May Not Work

There is no scientific proof that anti-aging injections will make you feel younger, if not look younger. The "evidence" is of questionable not-so-clinical trials and anecdotal evidence. Hormones and nutritional supplements are not the reasons why we age. In fact, we're not entirely sure of just why we age.

And no medical insurance will cover anti-aging procedures. The high cost and low guarantees are one of the more practical dangers of anti-aging medicines. In conclusion, the potential dangers of anti-aging medicines far outweigh any results, in my opinion.

What If The Anti-Aging Treatment is Natural?

Although I would always recommend natural anti-aging products over medicine, the term "Natural" does not necessarily mean good for "your" skin. Take look at the ingredients and try the product out and see how it feels on your skin.

If it feels good, you see results, and it doesn't irritate your skin you have found a good natural anti-aging product for you. There are a lot of products out there so try a few and use what you like best. Good luck on your journey towards health and wellness!
