Vitamins and minerals are necessary for our cells to function properly. By using IV therapy, large doses of vitamins and minerals are safely delivered into the bloodstreams that would not be tolerated orally. More often than not, your body is dehydrated and malnourished because of poor eating habits, stress and lack of exercise. Some benefits you may experience include hydration, decreased stress and anxiety, increased energy levels, improved sleep and immunity. Most of us don't realize that the healthy food we consume and the nutritious drinks are only somewhat absorbed. Even our daily vitamins and supplements are lost in the digestion process. IV vitamin infusions provide instant delivery, allowing for maximum benefits and complete absorption.
IV Therapy has many key benefits for our health and wellness including:
We suggest IV Therapy because in today’s fast paced society, fatigue can be a major inhibitor to success. Fatigue can be due to a number of causes such as poor diet or infection. Commonly, a deficiency of B vitamins can contribute to fatigue. Intravenous Therapy for fatigue includes vitamin C and B complex vitamins.
Patients who have had bariatric surgery may have nutritional deficiencies. These include:
· Vitamin deficiencies
· Mineral deficiencies
· Macro nutrient deficiencies including protein, fats or carbohydrates
· Not eating enough or not absorbing enough of the right vitamins and minerals
· Caloric deficiencies
Because bariatric surgery involves complex procedures that often rearrange the anatomy of the digestive system various complications and deficiencies in the fat-soluble vitamins, vitamin B12, iron, calcium, and folate can occur.
Dehydration occurs frequently and is due to multiple factors. The very small surgically created gastric pouch makes it extremely difficult for patients to hold much fluid. Because dumping syndrome occurs if fluids are mixed with food, patients also must drink fluids separately from meals. (Fluid with a meal can solubilize food and increase osmolarity.) As a result, patients must constantly sip fluid throughout the day to meet their fluid requirements.
Recovery after Surgery
It is imperative for your body to have the proper level of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to enable recovery and healing after surgery. IV Therapy is an excellent way to ensure your body has those essential nutrients. Achieving pharmacologically active effective concentrations of Vitamin C – and many other nutrients – in the blood and tissues is best accomplished by IV administration. Although Vitamin C alone is very helpful, we believe that using the Myers’ Cocktail may be even better because it contains Vitamin C in addition to B-complex vitamins and zinc, all of which are synergistic with each other and are good for the skin. IV glutathione may substantially reduce inflammation and promote tissue repair; therefore, we also recommend it for post-surgical wound healing. For best results, we recommend coming in for treatment both in advance of your surgery and after surgery. This gives your body more ammunition to tackle the task of repairing your skin and connective tissues. We suggest 1-2 treatments before and another 1-2 treatments after surgery for best results.
Enhanced Athletic Performance
IV Therapy can improve the way the body performs by enhancing overall hydration and ensuring the proper vitamins and minerals are available for optimum metabolism function. It can also reduce post work-out recovery time by flushing out lactic acid and decreasing muscle soreness. Common preparations include high dose Vitamin C and B complex.
Slowing the Aging Process
As we age, our collagen stores decrease rapidly. Collagen is necessary for healthy appearing skin and the reduction of skin aging. Glutathione is an anti-oxidant that helps to eliminate toxins in the body, protects the collagen fibers and elasticity of the skin. It can also decrease melanin that is responsible for sun/age spots. Intravenous Therapy to fight the inevitable signs of aging can include a combination of Glutathione, vitamin B complex, vitamin C and normal saline.
Revitalizing After Long Travel, Jet Lag and Hang Over
The body typically suffers significant dehydration and a weakened immune system after long travel and alcohol consumption. IV Therapy can replenish that lost hydration and replace those vitamins and minerals that have diminished leaving you feeling refreshed and energized.
