- Posted on: Jan 15 2018
It’s a new year, and that means new goals and plans for bringing our best to our daily life. IV therapy is a relatively new modality and one that is experiencing exponential growth. Why? Because it works! Here, we want to discuss what IV therapy is and why you may want to jump-start your new year with a new commitment to your overall health and vitality.
What is IV therapy?
IV therapy is an intravenous method of delivering nutrients such as vitamins and minerals directly to the bloodstream. In doing so, we accomplish two things. First, IV therapy bypasses the digestive process so it does not cause unpleasant side effects such as an upset stomach. Secondly, IV therapy allows individuals to obtain the right dosage of nutrients to achieve the maximum improvement in health and wellness. For example, vitamin C is commonly used to decrease cold and flu symptoms and aid in expedited recovery. For antiviral effects to occur, blood levels of vitamin C need to reach 10 to 15 mg/dL. This level is unattainable through oral administration but can be achieved with IV therapy.
Why Choose IV therapy?
IV therapy is on the cellular level where vitamins and other nutrients are needed. Where there is chronic stress on the system, such as with disease, the cells’ capacity for absorbing and holding nutrients may be diminished. In turn, this is introducing necessary nutrients directly into the blood essentially flooding the cells with the nutrients that will facilitate greater health and wellness.
IV therapy is not only for those who have a particular illness they wish to manage. It is not indicated only for those who partied a little much during the holidays or special-event weekend. Anyone who wants to improve physical or mental performance, feel more energized and focused in their daily life, or anyone who wants to manage their aging process, can benefit from customized IV cocktails administered in the safe and comfortable environment of our Austin office..
