What is IV?
Intravenous (IV) therapy is defined as the minimally invasive process of administering fluids and medicines or nutrition directly into a vein as a therapeutic treatment. This can be in the form of hydrating fluids with a combination of added vitamins, nutrients, and amino acids tailored to the individual’s needs. This process can also be referred to as an IV infusion or simply a drip.
IV therapy is used by doctors and hospitals to provide fluids and nutrients to patients the world over. This helps the patient stay hydrated and provides the necessary nutrients for treatment.
Now, the next generation of IV therapy is here. Skilled, experienced medical professionals are administering IV drips to clients ranging from family men and women to pro athletes and even cancer patients. When performed by an experienced professional, IV therapy is the absolute best way to receive fluids and nutrition.
Why IV Therapies are Important
In an ideal world, our diets would provide us with the optimal amount of essential nutrients we need not just to survive, but thrive. Unfortunately, modern living and agricultural practices make it harder than we’d think.
In a time when the average person is truly struggling with the basics such as getting enough fresh air and sleep, eating a balanced diet that is appropriately nutrient dense is challenging. Adding chronic stress, environmental pollutants, and nutrient-depleted foods to the mixture, make it nearly impossible for us to get the number of vitamins and minerals we really need.
A landmark study that looked at the nutritional quality of many various Fruit and Vegetables found:
What are the Benefits of IV Therapies?
Intravenous Vitamin Therapy has emerged as a fantastic way to complement our diets and give our bodies optimal vitamin and mineral levels. This allows essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to go right into our bloodstream directly to the cells, bypassing the digestive process, and delivering faster, more effective and efficient results, making nutrients available for immediate use.
Receiving vitamins intravenously has become an increasingly popular trend due to its application in a wide range of diseases including cancer, asthma, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, Parkinson’s disease and many others.
IV therapies have a certain advantage over conventional oral therapies. The effects of the IV infusions are extremely fast acting, with many clients reporting that they felt a difference almost immediately. In addition, the effects of IV therapy are cumulative which means that the body slowly builds up a stockpile of certain vitamins and amino acids that it can use when needed.
