Did you know IV can be used as a therapy?
At some point you may have seen an IV drip in a medical drama or at your local hospital.
At SOHMA Integrative Medicine of Long Beach and Lakewood CA we offer two forms of IV therapy. We offer the Myer’s cocktail and Ozone therapy. Both of these therapies have a variety of benefits which we’ll go over today. As well as answer the question of how often you can get IV therapy?
What is Myer’s Cocktail
Let’s begin with the Myer’s cocktail. Myer’s cocktail is an IV therapy with a crafted blend of nutrients in a saline solution. This includes Vitamin B complex, Vitamin C, Calcium and Magnesium.
As our bodies age, it begins to absorb nutrients differently. Making it necessary to supplement our diets with vitamins and minerals. We need this to manage our energy levels and keep our immune system healthy. Although you can take supplements orally, the digestive system is inefficient at absorbing all the nutrients you take. IV therapy allows us to bypass the digestive system which can otherwise destroy some of the nutrients you’re attempting to supplement.
This leads the body to absorb the nutrients in the Myer’s cocktail directly into the bloodstream. Allowing the body to make use of them at a higher concentration and much faster than if consumed orally. Some of the benefits of the Myer’s cocktail include:
- Boost to the immune system
- Boost of energy
Myer’s cocktail has also been used to help treat some conditions like:
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
What is Ozone Therapy?
Ozone is most commonly known for being found in the earth’s atmosphere creating a layer that protects us from ultraviolet rays from the sun. However ozone can be used therapeutically here on the surface as well. Ozone is known to have anti-inflammatory properties, and also acts as a disinfectant. Ozone can help prevent viral replication in the and may kill bacteria in the body.
Our immune system is the first line of defense our body has to prevent infections. But as we age our natural immune system also begins to decline. After a short 30 minute session of Ozone therapy the immune system becomes stimulated and aids healing. Ozone’s anti-inflammatory helps the body focus on fighting off pathogens. This can improve your blood circulation and may cleanse your arteries from potential viral and bacterial infection by oxidizing the toxins.
Ozone therapy can also help manage symptoms from”
- Joint pain
- Respiratory problems
- Skin conditions
- Chronic fatigue
And other conditions, if you have any questions about how helpful Ozone therapy can be, feel free to ask the helpful staff at SOHMA about the benefits of IV therapy.
How Often can I get IV therapy?
Like many complicated questions, it varies from person to person.
For Myer’s cocktail most people can have this IV therapy about once or twice per week. Many patients see a difference after just the first session. Some patients notice a notable improvement of their conditions after about 4 weeks. Afterwards you should be able to tell if the IV therapy is showing the desired results.
For Ozone therapy once again it depends on the condition you are trying to treat. Oftentimes you may require therapy three or four sessions per week. Just like any other treatment, it takes time to see long term benefits.
When administered by a professional, adverse side effects from Myer’s cocktail IV therapy and Ozone therapy are extremely rare. Though you should make sure to let the administrator of the IV therapy know if you have any allergies or are taking any medication so that you can minimize any risk factors.
