Feeling fatigued and struggling to just get through your work day?
Noticing more aches and pains than usual and just don’t feel like yourself?
Is it harder to recover from your usual workout, or that you're dealing with a bit of brain fog too?
You could be dealing with nutritional deficiencies leaving your body feeling drained and unable to function optimally. This may come as a surprise, but most people suffer from nutrient deficiencies brought on by other prescription drugs that rob their bodies of essential nutrients!
In addition, gut imbalances, poor diet, constant stress, and heavy exposure to toxins in your environment, food, and beauty products can also drain your body of essential vitamins and minerals needed for normal function.
Intravenous nutritional therapy replenishes essential missing nutrients – directly into your bloodstream. Unlike supplements, IV therapy bypasses the digestive system for faster absorption so that you can start feeling the effects of the treatment right away.
Replenishing your nutrient stores can not only reboot your energy but also fortify your immune function as well as boost overall resilience towards seasonal infections like the common cold.
Being nutrient-deficient can literally feel like you’re constantly operating in slow motion – and many symptoms like fatigue, headaches, and brain fog simply vanish after receiving IV therapy.
IV therapy can also promote healthy skin and help you age more gracefully, along with improving healing post-surgery and post-workout.
While oral supplementation and eating certain foods may help, it can take up to two days for your digestive system to properly digest foods.
In addition, it may also be a challenge to consume sufficient quantities of certain foods to correct the deficiencies. While standard oral supplementation can help, IV therapy is superior because you can begin to feel the positive effects almost instantly.
Finally, certain medical issues and some medications can also block oral supplementation while IV therapy is absorbed quickly and more effortlessly by your body. In fact, within several hours, you can start to feel energized and feel the effects of the IV nutrients, right after your session.
IV infusions typically take approximately 45-60 minutes. You will be comfortably seated during the entire session and can relax, enjoy your favorite book, or listen to some soothing music.
Depending on the therapy you choose, higher-dose therapies can take slightly longer.
IV therapy is not painful — just a slight pinch from a fine needle stick similar to a blood draw experience to insert the IV needle. Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing.
Arrive well hydrated and feel free to bring a water bottle with you to sip during the treatment. Please use the restroom before the session begins. As some infusions may affect blood sugar levels, please eat 1 - 2 hours before your session. If you are diabetic, monitor your insulin dosage and bring snacks with you to your appointment.
During your therapy, it is normal to feel relaxed and notice increased energy – along with a decrease in allergies later in the day.
After your therapy, you can expect more energy in the following days, feeling renewed and enjoying more mental clarity.
