If your hormone levels get too low, it’s going to start playing havoc with your body. If your body gets out of whack, there’s a very good chance it’s going to affect every aspect of your life.
While you might think that decreasing hormone levels are a normal part of the life cycle, you need to ask yourself an important question. Is feeling sluggish and out of sorts every day really a normal part of the life cycle?
The reality is hormone levels drop for a variety of reasons. It might be because of genetics. It might be tied to the aging process. More likely, it has something to do with lifestyle issues. Let’s look at some lifestyle issues that could be affecting your hormone levels:
- Poor diet that doesn’t provide enough nutrition in the form of vitamins and enzymes
- Obesity due to a poor diet and lack of exercise
- Poor sleeping habits
- Too much stress at home and work
- Bad health practices like too much sugar intake, drug/alcohol abuse, or smoking
Any combination of the aforementioned issues can cause your hormone levels to fall below acceptable standards.
If this is happening to you, you do not have to accept it as your new normal way of functioning. No matter how old you might be, you have a right to feel happy, healthy, and wise. Your task is to figure out how to get back the hormone levels you have been losing.
The reality is you have two viable options. You could start a new vitamin regiment and make some lifestyle changes. Your other option would be to submit to an IV hormone treatment option. The question is, “Which option would best address your needs given your current circumstances?” Let’s investigate.
Are Injectable Hormones More Effective Than Oral Supplements?
The answer to the titled question is complicated. Why? Everyone’s body functions differently. What works well for one person might not be a good choice for someone else. The best way to address this question is to discuss the circumstances under which each option is more likely going to successfully raise someone’s hormone levels.
If someone’s hormone levels are dangerously low, a quicker solution would be preferable. That would point to the IV hormone treatment option. By injecting hormones directly into the human body, it allows the injected hormones to bypass all the body functions that typically slow done the processing of vitamins taken as part of oral treatment. The hormones would bypass the cumbersome digestive function in favor of going right to the source of where the hormones are most needed.
While injected hormones would clearly offer the most effective and efficient option, they do come with some possible side effects. The list of possible side effects includes:
- Onset of acne issues
- Deepening of the voice
- Sleeping problems
- Breast enlargement
- Weight gain
- Slower metabolism
- Joint and muscle pain
After looking at this list, there could certainly be issues related to someone’s gender. Does a woman really want her voice deepening? She would definitely want to take the risk if her hormones levels are too low.
If someone’s hormone levels are decreasing but not yet at dangerous levels, oral supplements might be the best solution. Since the vitamins would have more time to create the desired results with no risks, it could be the right choice.
However, taking vitamins to solve a hormone issue requires a lot of discipline. The body needs to be bombarded with vitamins to get enough in the person’s system to make a difference. If someone were to miss days or weeks of their oral supplement regiment, the effectiveness of the process would be minimal. Meanwhile, the person’s hormone levels would continue dropping.
Based on this comparison, it should be clear that both hormone options have a place in the hormone treatment process. It’s just a matter of matching the individual’s circumstances with the most effective option.
