What Is All The Hype About IV Therapy?: How To Boost Your Immune System This Fall
The best way to have our nutritional needs met is through food, but for many people eating the proper, nutrient-dense foods isn’t always possible. This is something I hear often in the clinic because people are busy, sometimes they need to grab lunch on the run or eat something quickly at their desk, or sometimes its challenging to find these good quality foods.
When we throw our busy lifestyles into the mix, the demand for these nutrients increases even more. This high demand on the body for nutrients depletes us, and thereby can cause sleep quality issues, muscle pain and twitching, decreases in energy throughout the day, mood fluctuations, migraines and headaches, and anxiety-like symptoms. Most of these symptoms are seen in those who are experiencing burn out.
IV therapy infuses vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream. It can be used to quickly and efficiently correct common nutrient deficiencies by delivering a high dose of nutrients into the muscle via injection. Some examples include:
- B12 injections can be used to support mental and neurological health, increase energy, and address sleep problems.
- Magnesium is often depleted by stress. Injections can help treat tight muscles, restless leg syndrome, high blood pressure, and a host of other concerns.
- Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C are used to increase blood concentrations of several nutrients more quickly and efficiently than oral supplements.
Receiving nutrients by IV is ideal for those who have digestive concerns and GI disorders such as Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis because we don’t have to worry about absorption. IV therapy is also a great treatment option if you’re suffering from chronic pain conditions, fibromyalgia, or stress and fatigue. It also supports the immune system and can help optimize athletic performance.
