Benefits of IV Nutritional Therapy
Intravenous (IV) Nutritional Therapy is becoming a popular part of a wellness routine that delivers vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to the body via the bloodstream to help fight aging and stress by improving needed nutrition to your cells, boost your brain power, and combat fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and chronic pain. IV drips are essentially more concentrated ways you can get vitamins by bypassing the stomach and intestines for maximum results.
People who have IV Nutritional Therapy often report that they can feel a difference within hours after getting the treatment. They report an increase in energy and well being, improved physical performance, healing and recovery from sports and surgery, lowered stress and an enhanced immune system.
IV Nutritional Therapy is used to treat the following:
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Chronic Depression
- Congestive Heart Failure
- Seasonal Allergies
- Urinary Tract Infection
- Acute and Chronic Viral infection
The beauty of having IV nutritional therapy is that it is customized to your nutritional requirements to help you achieve your optimal health.
Common IV Nutritional Infusions
Nutritional Injections: This version boosts your energy, promotes better sleep, boosts your work performance, and just plain feels good.
B12 Therapy: This fights chronic fatigue and boosts energy levels.
Glutathione: This is an antioxidant crucial for optimal health and helps detoxify the body.
Meyer’s Cocktail: This is an infusion of calcium, magnesium, vitamin B complex, B5, B6, B12, vitamin C, and minerals diluted in water. People choose this infusion to overcome vitamin deficiencies, combat anxiety, stress and depression, as well as relieve headaches and the symptoms of chronic fatigue.
One of the ways IV nutritional therapy works is that it bypasses the gastrointestinal tract that often stalls absorption. Now it can be administered and tolerated better than if taken orally. By directly sending the nutrients into the cells they work better for your body. You may benefit from this therapy by having it just a few times, regularly or for a longer time, depending on your needs and the conditions being treated.
You want to make sure you don’t get too high of a dosage of certain vitamins and minerals. If you have kidney disease, heart problems or high blood pressure you need to make sure you don’t get a fluid overload. Potential side effects of IV nutritional therapy may include blood clots, air embolism through the IV line, and possible infection from the needle. It is always a good idea to check with your doctor first to make sure you get the right kind of infusion and make sure that the IV solution doesn’t interact negatively with your current medications. In general, IV Nutritional Therapy is considered safe and well-tolerated by most people and is worth looking into if you are struggling with your health.
Initial Exam and Review
You will need to come in for an initial assessment. Your blood will be taken and checked with a lab and your medical history reviewed. From there we can tailor a treatment plan that is best for you, including addressing any deficiencies you may have so that we can add the needed nutrients into your infusion.
