Understanding IV Therapy

Posted on: June 21, 2016 in Category: Wellness Guide

Understanding IV Therapy

Understanding Intravenous TherapyYour body needs sufficient levels of vitamins and nutrients to thrive. The problem is that so many of these vitamins and nutrients quickly grow deficient thanks to our highly-processed diets. Vitamins that may have once played a dominant role in our diet are now best found in a bottle, and even then the amount of the vitamin that you are getting is significantly less. A vitamin deficiency isn’t necessarily going to make you feel ill, but it will prevent you from experiencing maximum well-being.

IV therapy has become a leading form of anti-aging therapy as it helps to restore vitamin and nutrient levels to their ideal place, thereby improving overall wellbeing without requiring significant change to dietary patterns.

What are Intravenous Infusions?

IV therapy uses a small catheter to administer fluids directly into a vein in your hand. This allows vitamins, minerals and other medications to directly enter your bloodstream under sterile conditions through IV tubing.

By administering fluids, vitamins, minerals and medications directly into a vein you are receiving the full, complete benefits of vitamins and medications directly into your blood stream by bypassing your stomach and intestines. During the intravenous infusion you will be monitored by a physician who is a board certified cardiac anesthesiologist and pain medicine specialist certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology.

IV therapy is recommended in the treatment of fibromyalgia, in addition to immune system support for those seeking to lose weight or participate in an anti-aging program.
