When people hear IV Therapy their immediate assumption might be that it is required to go to a hospital. Or perhaps people are just not aware that IV therapy has therapeutic properties that can help with everyday health challenges.
Today we’re going to get more acquainted with the usages of IV Therapy. We invite you to consider whether IV therapy should be part of your healthcare treatment plan.
What is IV Therapy
IV is short for Intravenous, making IV Therapy a therapeutic intravenous treatment. Unlike its medical counterpart you do not need to go to a hospital in order to receive IV Therapy. The IV is used as a delivery method for fluids, minerals, and vitamins. At SOHMA Integrative Medicine we offer the Myer’s Cocktail which is a blend of Vitamin C, B Complex, Magnesium and Calcium. By taking this blend through an IV instead of orally, you bypass the digestive system. IV Therapy allows your body to take full advantage of the vitamins and minerals more efficiently. Many are unaware that the digestive system tends to break down most of the nutrients before the body can use them.
What is in the Myer’s Cocktail
Vitamin C is a known immunity booster and is a needed component of the body to grow and repair body tissues. It being an antioxidant helps protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals being the resulting molecules after the body breaks down food. They can also occur when exposed to toxins in the atmosphere like pollution, smoke and radiation.
Vitamin B complex is made up of various sets of vitamin B. The body uses Vitamin B in a number of forms, such as converting food to energy, lifting your mood and improving your cognitive effectiveness.
In order to maintain normal nerve and muscle function the body uses Magnesium.
Calcium is known to be necessary to build and protect bones, helps muscles contract and the heart to beat.
IV Therapy Uses
There are many different uses for IV Therapy that vary from person to person as everyone has a different lifestyle. Some of the different benefits IV therapy is known to have include:
- Immune System Support
- Increased Energy Levels
- Cardiovascular Health
For athletic lifestyles IV therapy can help by boosting energy levels to keep you strong and energetic for the rest of the day. It can be used to rehydrate the body after a particularly grueling exercise session. If you have been feeling sluggish throughout the day it could be that you need to relax and detoxify your body from toxins you may have been gathering by just living in a large metropolitan city. Regardless of your lifestyle choices, Myer’s Cocktail IV therapy can serve to better your health by letting your body take advantage of the nutrients being passed through the IV, and letting your body recover naturally.
Myer’s Cocktail has also been used to aid a number of conditions including:
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Acute Muscle Spasm
- Upper Respiratory Conditions
Myer’s cocktail IV therapy has been found to be effective at relieving symptoms from seasonal allergies, upper respiratory infection, and sinusitis. Delivering a more concentrated dose of vitamin supplements through IV can help to bring balance to the body. Helping reduce fatigue and elevate energy levels.
IV Therapy can help you in many different ways. Though it is up to you to make the decision of letting your body recover the natural way is up to you.
