Intravenous (IV) therapy is a useful method for delivering nutrition that your body needs. Instead of going through the digestive process, it allows the vitamins and nutrients to go directly to your bloodstream, providing faster, more effective results.
In addition to being used in hospitals to treat people who are dehydrated or are too sick to eat properly, vitamin therapies can be used to quickly improve vitamin deficiencies and revitalize the body. They are customized to meet a patient’s specific health needs, restoring – and possibly improving – general health and well-being. Vitamin therapies also offer a number of other benefits.
If your body is unable to properly absorb the nutrients it needs due to medications or medical issues, IV therapy ensures that those vitamins are effectively delivered. As they are completely and quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, your body can utilize them immediately.
Conditions such as chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, or even a cold or respiratory illness could cause a drop in energy levels. IV therapy can boost the immune system, helping you to feel refreshed and energized.
IV therapy is the most efficient method for providing your body with optimal hydration to support all vital organ functions, preventing issues like kidney stones, constipation, and muscle damage.
Most IV therapies take less than one hour, and you don’t have to do anything but relax and wait for it to complete.
At Foyé MD and Spa, we can create a custom therapy to meet your nutritional needs and treatment goals. It can include vitamins such as calcium, magnesium, and vitamins B and C to treat fatigue, allergies, muscle spasms or other issues.
IV therapy decreases or eliminates the need for nutritional supplements. Be sure to discuss your nutritional needs with your doctor before changing your supplement regimen.
Just as nutritional supplements can boost your immune system, IV therapy can provide doses of vitamins such as vitamin C to build immunity and even prevent or fight cancer. Regular therapy can also help chronic conditions like respiratory illnesses and migraines from developing.
It can take up to two days to completely digest foods that you eat, which means that it will take some time to absorb the vitamins and nutrients of that food. With IV therapy, the positive effects – increased energy, improved mood, clearer thinking – can be felt almost instantly.
IV therapy can help to ensure that athletes are properly hydrated after excessive sweating and can also replenish lost vitamins and minerals to help with tired muscles, exhaustion, and recovery time.
Your everyday environment contains toxins that can take a toll on your health as well as your appearance. IV therapy provides antioxidants that your body can use to flush out those harmful toxins more effectively and fight off premature signs of aging.
