Health benefits of IV Therapy
IV therapy is gaining more recognition as a preventative and therapeutic treatment for many health conditions! As we deal with low energy levels, increasing stress, environmental pollutants, poor diets, nutrient-depleted soil, overuse of medications, and chronic health conditions, IV therapy is an effective way to replenish nutrients, support metabolic processes and optimize health! There are a number of health benefits to IV Therapy and at NEX Wellness, we can administer high-end IV Therapy Treatment. If you are looking for information about the health benefits of IV Therapy, then you have come to the right place at NEX Wellness. In this blog, we share some information about some of these health benefits.
What is IV Therapy?
Intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy is an infusion of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are delivered directly into the bloodstream. It is a specialized therapy that allows higher concentrations of these nutrients to be delivered to the cells since the procedure bypasses the digestive system. Our cells then use these nutrients to increase energy production, help metabolism, support detoxification pathways, and support the repair and healing processes of the body. The greatest benefit of IV therapy is that its therapeutic effects are beyond what can be achieved by oral supplementation.
Who can benefit from IV Therapy Treatment?
Many conditions can benefit from IV therapy, including:
- Adrenal fatigue
- Burnout and chronic stress
- Chronic Fatigue
- Poor immune function
- Athletic Support – Rehydration and Recovery
- Acute or chronic infections (colds/flu)
- Crohns/colitis/malabsorption issues
- PMS & Hormone imbalances
- Anxiety and depression
- Weight loss & metabolism
What is in the IV?
The most common IV is called a “Myer’s Cocktail” which contains Vitamin C, B vitamins, Magnesium, and Calcium. IV infusions are often customized by adding additional nutrients based on the patient’s individual needs and as recommended by your Naturopathic Doctor.
What’s the difference between taking vitamins orally or by IV?
Vitamin supplements that are taken orally are absorbed into the body in the small intestine. Absorption rates can vary from individual to individual depending on various factors (i.e stress, chronic disease, gut inflammation, etc). Absorption is also limited by whether nutrients are actively or passively absorbed by the body. IV therapy bypasses the absorption process and 100% of the nutrients are delivered directly to the cells. Therefore, patients tend to feel better more quickly than with oral supplementation.
Is it safe?
Generally, IV therapy is well tolerated by most patients. A detailed health history is required prior to IV therapy to determine whether IV therapy is appropriate for each patient. The procedure involves the use of sterile equipment and materials to reduce the risk of infection. Some of the risks of IV therapy include local swelling, bruising or irritation of a vein, however, your Naturopathic Doctor will be monitoring you throughout the treatment. Overall, IV therapy is very safe.
