Before getting into the types of iv therapy, let’s first talk about what is IV therapy. You probably know that IV drips are traditionally used in hospitals in order to administer fluids and medicines directly to the patient’s bloodstream. IV therapy is essentially the same thing with the exception that instead of medicine you are being administered fluids, nutrients, or ozone.
At SOHMA Integrative Medicine in Lakewood and Long Beach we offer two forms of IV therapy, the Myer’s cocktail, and Ozone therapy. Join us as we go through why IV therapy is growing in popularity and the benefits of these IV therapies.
When consuming supplements orally it is unlikely that you are absorbing all the nutrients you think you may be consuming. The reason being is when consumed orally your body digests and metabolizes the supplements which significantly reduces the amounts of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that enter the bloodstream.
With IV therapy, you bypass the digestive system. When nutrients are administered directly to the bloodstream via IV, your body can make use of the fluids and nutrients immediately. Many patients notice a boost of energy, relaxed with less tension as well as improvement in their mood.
Ozone is typically thought of as a gas in the upper atmosphere that protects us from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation. But it can be used therapeutically as well. Ozone has amazing anti-inflammatory properties and can act as a disinfectant. Ozone therapy aids the body in preventing tissue damage and improves local blood circulation.
The immune system can become stimulated to aid healing after a short 30-minute session. Improved blood circulation through Ozone therapy may clean your arteries from potential viral and bacterial infections by oxidizing the toxins. Inflammation can cause oxidative stress which can cause pain and irritation. Ozone therapy can bring balance caused by oxidative stress and greatly improve pain caused by inflammation.
Even when taking necessary precautions, toxins build up in the body of everyone. Usually caused when absorbing pollution from smoke, heavy metals, or other chemicals in our daily lives. When built up in the body these toxins can have many adverse effects including the body’s ability to heal itself. Improving your diet and exercising can slow down the accumulation of toxins, though when living in a big city, a build-up can be unavoidable. Ozone therapy detoxification can help with:
- Chronic Fatigue
- Respiratory Problems
- Joint Pain
- Skin Conditions
- Digestive Issues
The Myer’s Cocktail
The Myer’s cocktail is a perfectly crafted blend of Vitamin C, B Complex, Magnesium, and Calcium delivered via IV drip. Usually as one gets older their body loses the ability to absorb nutrients the way it did when it was younger. Your body begins to need different nutrients and vitamins which are often necessary to manage proper immune system health and energy levels.
IV therapy dispenses a high dose of vitamins directly to the bloodstream without causing any significant discomfort. The blend of vitamins and nutrients can be used by the patient’s body to:
- Boost Immune System
- Ease Anxiety
- Promote Relaxation
- Aid with Migraine Pains
- Detoxify the Body
The Myer’s cocktail has been frequently used to aid in the treatment of respiratory problems, migraine, fatigue, fibromyalgia, and other conditions. If you need more information feel free to ask the helpful staff at SOHMA any questions you may have.
