Getting Up Close and Personal with IV Vitamin Therapy
Irrespective of the fact that the human body is an awesome machine that heals itself, defends itself against a myriad of bacteria, and performs a host of other wonders, our day-to-day strains can compromise the natural functions of our internal systems. Just take into consideration everything we consume on a daily basis, from sugary soft drinks and salty snacks, to the fat-laden fast foods, and alcoholic beverages. Not only that, but our energy stores are depleted and key vitamins are used up on a day in, day out basis, forcing our bodies to compensate – often yielding unfortunate, unwanted symptoms.
IV Vitamin Therapy restores our nutrient levels to their optimal state. Indeed, for those who have never heard of the approach, it can sound strange. This treatment has actually been studied for quite some time now, with medical professionals acknowledging that medications could be injected intravenously since the 1600s.
A Brief History
Before we delve into the multitude of benefits IV therapy brings to the medical landscape, let’s look at the science that inspired this evolution – and revolution, for that matter – in the field of intravenous healing.
It was Dr. Thomas Latta in the 1930s who came to the conclusion that salt water injected into the bloodstream could help combat cholera, but it wasn’t until the 1960s that IV therapy really began to take hold and become mainstream, so to speak. Dr. John Myers developed a “cocktail” of vitamins and minerals which were injected into patients who suffered from a sweeping range of conditions. Essentially, due to a lack of scientific methods, original attempts to deliver IV fluids and drugs were met with little success, yet it was two World Wars that ushered in the era of modern IV therapy…with the greatest advancements in drugs, equipment, and procedures occurring in the last 25 years.
Purpose, Benefits and More
The primary purpose is to improve the quality of life, as vitamin deficiencies can yield a number of problems, including:
Decreased physical activity
Decreased cognitive function
Heightened sensitivity to light
Decreased recovery times
Unexplained weight gain
Here’s the bottom line
When your body receives the vitamins and nutrients it requires to thrive, you can turn your attention to what matters most – living the most fulfilling life possible. What’s more, by restoring your body to its optimum nutrient and vitamin levels, you can reduce or otherwise eradicate the aforementioned symptoms.
In fact, we have heard from some patients who report feeling better within mere minutes of receiving a treatment. Now, because the symptoms of vitamin deficiencies vary so widely, so do the benefits of receiving IV therapy. Ever since the also-aforementioned Myers “cocktail” was invented in the ‘60s, new concoctions have been developed to help combat specific deficiencies. Alas, IV therapy isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. It is tailored to each patient’s individual needs, with a primary benefit being that it delivers the key vitamins to patients where they need them.
Additionally, IV drip therapy benefits include:
Reduced instances of migraines
Improved physical stamina
Improved mood and cognitive function
More restful nights of sleep
