Every day, your body is subjected to dangerous toxins that can lower your resistance and contribute to illness. If you’re battling a chronic disease, the threat is even more real, and you have to be that much more careful with your health. To boost your immune system and help your body heal itself naturally, IV vitamin therapy is a worthwhile and beneficial option. The process involves administering vitamins via an IV drip line. Note that this is different from vitamin injections, which are when vitamins are given in single-shot dosages.
What Does IV Vitamin Therapy Treat?
With IV vitamin therapy, vitamins are used to treat an array of disorders by delivering quick, effective results. IV vitamin therapy can be used to treat an assortment of health issues, including:
• Allergic rhinitis
• Cardiovascular disease
• Chronic depression
• Chronic fatigue
• Muscle spasms
• Migraine and tension headaches
• Respiratory problems
• Vitamin deficiencies due to diet
• Weight issues
• Withdrawal from narcotics
With IV vitamin therapy, natural vitamins and minerals are delivered right into the bloodstream. When you take vitamins orally, they have to go through the digestive tract. By bypassing that step, the body is able to absorb 100% of the vitamin’s nutrients. In turn, the nutrients are immediately available to the cells.
While IV vitamin therapy is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle, it can be a useful addition to living a healthy life. Vitamin therapy can help supplement nutrients that are missing from your regular diet in order to improve immunity, energy and the healing process.
IV Vitamin Therapy Benefits
IV vitamin therapy brings antioxidants, minerals, nutrients, and vitamins straight to the bloodstream, which helps the immune system better protect and repair your body. There are several benefits of IV vitamin therapy, including:
• 100% absorption instead of just partial absorption
• Efficient deliver of nutrients to the body
• High vitamin doses can be tolerated, which wouldn’t be possible orally
• Immune system enhancements treat and prevent illnesses
• Increased energy and alertness
• Slows down the side effects of aging
The best part about IV vitamin therapy is that it’s extremely safe. It’s considered a minimally-invasive method that’s easily tolerated by most clients. There’s also a very low risk of developing any dangerous or adverse side effects. Additionally, before vitamin therapy treatment, your blood pressure, vital signs and health history will be taken into consideration to ensure this is the right treatment for you. Doses are personalized to the client and every single session is strictly supervised by a medical professional.
IV Vitamin Therapy Side Effects
Though IV vitamin therapy is highly safe and easily handled by most clients, it’s still important to know what to expect in terms of post-treatment and potential side effects. Most commonly, clients experience irritation where the IV was inserted. It’s also possible that you’ll get a flushing and/or warm sensation while the treatment is going on. It’s also common to taste vitamins in the mouth post-infusion. In order to minimize side effects, discomfort and sensitivity, most clients start with low doses of vitamins and build up to stronger doses. Either way, though, you can be comfortable knowing that most people experience very few, mild side effects. There are positive side effects of IV vitamin therapy, too. In addition to how beneficial it is to have vitamins delivered directly to your bloodstream, many people feel more energetic and alert post-treatment, and you may also find that your mood improves. Plus, just knowing that your health is improving by the minute is enough to raise your mood.
Who is a Good Candidate for IV Vitamin Therapy?
Most people will benefit from getting more vitamins and nutrients into their body to promote better health. However, IV vitamin therapy isn’t a necessity for every single person. If you’re in your 20s or 30s and eat a healthy diet with plenty of fruit, veggies, lean meats and fish, you may not need vitamin therapy; it’s possible you don’t even need to take a daily vitamin since you get so many nutrients through your diet. However, if you eat a vegetarian diet, you’re likely low in Vitamin B, in which case IV vitamin therapy would certainly help. Other common reason to get IV vitamin therapy is if you take acid-blocking medications or if you have a chronic illness like fatigue or fibromyalgia. Ready to get started with IV vitamin therapy?
