As the effects of COVID-19 continue to hang over our lives, now more than ever people are beginning to take their health and wellness seriously. One solution to boost your immunity and strengthen your body’s defenses against infectious diseases is Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy. This hydration therapy not only helps in detoxifying the body but can also provide essential vitamins and minerals that may be lacking from a normal diet. But what exactly is IV vitamin therapy? And how does it work? Let’s find out.
IV vitamin therapy involves infusing vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, hyaluronic acid and other nutrient compounds directly into the bloodstream through an intravenous drip. It creates a much more efficient delivery system for nutrients as they enter the bloodstream quickly without needing digestion or absorption by the stomach or gut.
Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy
IV vitamin therapy is known to offer many benefits such as providing energy boosts, improving mood and mental clarity, aiding weight loss efforts by burning fat faster and helping to slow the aging process by reducing stress on organs such as the kidneys and liver. In addition to these health benefits, it can also help strengthen the immune system by providing essential vitamins and minerals that support overall immune health during cold or flu season.
Types of vitamins used in intravenous vitamin therapy
The type of vitamins used in an IV vitamin drip depends on individual needs, but commonly includes B vitamins such as B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacinamide), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine) and B12 (cobalamin). Other vitamins may include magnesium, calcium, zinc, selenium etc depending on individual requirements. Allergy testing may be carried out prior to treatment so that any allergies can be identified before any medication or supplements are administered via an IV drip.
Who can benefit from intravenous vitamin therapy?
Anyone looking for a safe way to improve their overall well-being could benefit from this type of hydration therapy, regardless of age or gender, as long as they are healthy enough for treatment and have no complications from pre-existing conditions such as cancer or kidney disease. For those looking for alternative ways to boost their immune system during the cold and flu season, this could prove particularly beneficial as it provides quick relief with minimal side effects compared to traditional medications such as oral antibiotics prescribed by doctors for infections such as strep throat or sinusitis.
How long does the treatment take?
Treatments usually last between 30 minutes and 1 hour, depending on individual needs. During the treatment, patients are often relaxed, sitting comfortably in a recliner chair, while receiving infusions through a secure needle inserted into veins near the elbows, usually under the supervision of trained professionals in clinics that specialize in providing this service.
Caring for yourself after treatment
After treatment, patients should make sure they get plenty of rest while drinking plenty of water, which would help flush out toxins released during treatment and make them feel better prepared to fight off illnesses that naturally arise from everyday activities such as traveling, attending social events, etc. While most people experience no side effects after treatment, some have reported feeling nauseous afterward, which should disappear after drinking fluids.
A weakened immune system puts us at risk of illnesses ranging from colds/flu viruses to serious illnesses including COVID-19, therefore having a strong immune system is a key factor when considering overall health & well-being. With today’s advances in modern medicine, using new technologies such as IV vitamin therapy, we can continue to fight off illness & maintain a balanced lifestyle even during pandemic times.
