With IV Therapy
Intravenous (IV) Therapy for Health and Wellness
If you’re dealing with fatigue, stress, frequent illness, imbalanced hormones, excess toxins or dull skin, then IV therapy may just be the solution to your problems.
IV therapy involves the direct injection of specially formulated fluids into your veins to promote hydration and wellness. It’s a common method used by healthcare professionals to deliver various medications, vitamins, and other necessary fluids to the body.
What is Intravenous (IV) Therapy?
IV therapy can deliver a powerhouse of minerals and vitamins directly into your bloodstream. An example is the Myers’ Cocktail, a potent mixture that’s rich in Vitamin B, Vitamin C, magnesium, and calcium.
This treatment leads to quick patient recovery, meaning there’s no need to wait for the digestive system to process and absorb the nutrients.
Why is Intravenous (IV) Therapy Used?
IV therapy allows nutrients to be delivered to the body rapidly compared to other methods. This therapy is performed exclusively by professionals using an IV line to bypass the gastrointestinal tract, allowing the body to absorb the nutrients rapidly.
This is key because digestion can impact nutrient absorption due to metabolism, activity levels, energy, age, genetics, interactions with other substances we consume—the list goes on.
During the procedure, a tube is inserted into a vein in the hand or arm, and then connected to a bag of IV fluids that drip directly into the vein.
What Conditions or Diseases Can IV Vitamin Therapy Treat?
- Serious dehydration
- Inability to eat
- Malnutrition or vitamin deficiency
- Chronic fatigue
- Muscle spasms
- Sinus issues
- Respiratory tract infections
If you’re unable to do IV therapy because finding your vein is difficult or for any other reason, then intramuscular injections (IM Shots) can be an alternative.
What Are Intramuscular Injection (IM Shots)?
Similar to its counterpart, IV therapy, an intramuscular injection delivers medication directly into the muscles, allowing quick absorption into the bloodstream. This prevents vein sensitivity and the challenge of finding the perfect spot.
Why Are IM Shots Used?
IM injections are used as an alternative to IVs and oral medication. As mentioned above, the absorption of medications through the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) can take time and may even lessen the effectiveness of certain drugs when swallowed. Since the muscles have a rich blood supply, it allows the nutrients to be delivered into the bloodstream quickly.
Intramuscular injections (IM shots) can be used when:
- Finding a suitable vein is challenging
- When the digestive system causes oral pills to be ineffective
