Do you feel tired all the time or you’re not sleeping well? IV Therapy may be the answer. IV Nutrition therapy was once solely a hospital treatment, but it’s now become a popular way to treat certain conditions and boost overall wellness. But what does IV Therapy treat.
What is IV Therapy?
Intravenous (IV) Nutrition Therapy is a procedure in which a high concentration of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, are infused directly into the bloodstream. The content of the infusion varies depending on the goals of the patient, but vitamins C and B-complex, calcium, and magnesium, are often included in the mix.
What does IV Therapy treat?
IV therapy is a decades old therapy that has traditionally been used in mainstream medicine as a method of rehydration, and supplementation. However, it has now become an elective therapy that is available as an outpatient procedure.
IV Therapy is used to treat chronic conditions that do not respond well to oral medication. This includes:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Autoimmune disease
- Lyme disease
- Detoxification for drugs, alcohol, and smoking.
IV Therapy also provides a lift for the immune system, because it increases the levels of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants necessary for optimal immune function.
In addition, IV Therapy improves overall wellness. People generally feel a lot better after IV Therapy, and experience a significant surge in their energy levels. IV Therapy increases the number of nutrients the body can absorb and this boosts cell function, and improves overall health and well-being.
IV therapy isn’t for everyone, so people considering the procedure should know and understand the risks, and choose a provider wisely. Search our directory to find a practice in your area.
