 You may be doing all of the right things— eating healthy, getting quality sleep, and exercising, but you are still experiencing fatigue, brain fog, and/or are feeling unwell. Maybe you’re taking a variety of supplements trying to support your body, but it doesn’t feel like it is doing anything. What else can you do to support your health?

IV therapy, short for intravenous therapy, involves the administration of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients directly into the bloodstream, nourishing and supporting your body from within.  Though hospitals have been offering IV therapy for hydration and nutrients for years, it has gained traction over the last few years in wellness clinics and spas. There are many benefits to IV Therapy! 

 

What Are the Benefits of IV Therapy?

IV Therapy’s benefits can vary widely, based on the infusion you are receiving. From boosting energy levels and enhancing immune function to promoting detoxification and supporting overall well-being, IV therapy offers a multitude of benefits. Below are some examples of ways that IV therapy can benefit you:

  1. Enhanced Nutrient Absorption: With IV therapy, vital nutrients bypass the digestive system, ensuring maximum absorption and utilization within your body. This means that your cells receive the nutrients they need.
  2. Increased Energy Levels: IV therapy can replenish your body with essential vitamins like B12 and vitamin C, known for their energy-boosting properties. This can help in cases of chronic fatigue, helping to increase your energy. However, it is important to first know what is causing your fatigue, in order to address it appropriately with an effective treatment. 
  3. Immune System Support: IV therapy supports your immune system by delivering powerful antioxidants and immune-boosting nutrients directly to your cells. This will build some resiliency with your immune system and help to fight off common colds. 
  4. Faster Recovery and Rejuvenation: Whether you’re an athlete, recovering from a busy lifestyle, or simply seeking a wellness boost, IV therapy can aid in faster recovery and rejuvenation. By delivering vital nutrients directly where they are needed most, IV therapy helps speed up the healing process and promotes tissue repair.
  5. Glowing Skin: IV therapy isn’t just for boosting your internal well-being; it can also give your skin a radiant, healthy glow. By providing your body with essential nutrients like vitamin C and collagen, IV therapy supports skin elasticity, fights oxidative stress, and promotes a youthful complexion.

At Vida Integrated Health we offer a variety of infusion options and personalize these treatments to each patient. 

The Top Four (Most Common) Infusions Are:

IV Glutathione Therapy

IV Iron Sucrose Therapy

IV Vitamin C Therapy

IV Multi-Nutrient Therapy

  • Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect tissues from inflammation and quells inflammatory processes in the body.
  • Iron is an essential element in many of our body processes. Most people think of red blood cell production when they think of iron, but that is only one important function it plays a role in. Iron is also important in the production of chemical energy (ATP) in our mitochondria, the production of neurotransmitters and as part of the clotting cascade, to name a few. It is important to treat iron deficiency regardless of if anemia is also present.
  • Vitamin C has different properties depending on the dose. In doses below 10 grams, it is another powerful antioxidant that protects tissues from inflammation. In doses higher than 10 grams, it can take on pro-oxidative function. This can help be helpful in stimulating a healing response in chronic disease.
  • Multi-Nutrient IV therapy is a great way to treat micronutrient deficiencies by bypassing the gut. In the setting of chronic digestive symptoms or conditions, micronutrient deficiencies can develop due to malabsorption. People tend to feel better fasting if we boost micronutrient levels while simultaneously working on improving function at the gut lining so they start absorbing more of the nutrients they are consuming
