IV Therapy

What is IV therapy?

In the mid-20th century, a physician from Baltimore named Dr. John Myers began to suspect that many of the chronic conditions that plagued his patients were caused by a combination of dehydration and lack of complete nourishment. He devised “cocktails” composed of vitamins, minerals, and fluids that he administered intravenously so that the benefits went directly into damaged, depleted, tissues, rather than being absorbed by the digestive system and excreted.

At Alternative Wellness Clinic, the wellness professionals base IV therapy upon your symptoms and complaints.

What kinds of conditions does IV therapy help?

Up to 75% of women and men in the United States suffer from chronic dehydration. Even if you think you’re drinking enough, if your skin is loose, thin, or dry, or if you often feel fatigued and lack energy, you could be dehydrated. If you’re eating foods that aren’t right for your body, you could also have a low-grade inflammation that impairs your health and vitality.

An IV treatment replenishes your cells with water and nutrients. Conditions that improve with IV therapy include:

  • Inflammation
  • Chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia
  • Immune deficiency
  • Asthma and respiratory infections
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Chronic hives and allergies
  • Migraines and other headaches

IV therapy may help you battle an acute or chronic viral infection. Your team may recommend an IV treatment when you have regenerative medicine treatments because it augments regenerative medicine by supplying your body with extra nutrients.

What is in IV therapy?

Your wellness professional chooses the exact composition of your IV therapy based on your symptoms and complaints. Most IV treatments consist of a blend of nutrients which may include:

  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin B complex
  • Vitamin B12
  • Electrolytes 
  • Other vitamins and minerals

You may need different compositions at different times, depending on what kind of stress your body is handling.

What happens when I get IV therapy?

An IV therapy session is relaxing. While you rest comfortably in a treatment chair, your medical professional inserts an IV into one arm. The nutrient-infused fluid flows into your bloodstream, and the entire session takes about one hour.

What are the benefits of IV therapy?

IV fluid and nutrients help your organs function better and aid the liver in its detoxification tasks. You’ll notice benefits such as:

  • Plumper, younger-looking skin
  • Faster recovery after sports
  • Stronger immune system
  • Less pain and dysfunction
  • Better sleep
  • Alleviated symptoms
