Nutritional IV Therapies Q & A
What are nutritional IV therapies?
Nutritional IV therapies are vitamins and nutrients that you receive intravenously. Dr. John Myers first developed IV vitamin drips in the 1970s, for which the Myers’ Cocktail — a mix of magnesium, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C — is named.
Intravenous therapies are often helpful to people suffering with a variety of health conditions. Nutritional IV therapies are fast-acting because the vitamins and other nutrients don’t have to filter through your digestive system. Instead, the solution goes directly into your veins where your body can quickly absorb the supplements through your bloodstream.
This method of treating illness and chronic conditions produces higher levels of vitamins and minerals in your body than if you took them through food or oral supplements.
Who can benefit from nutritional IV therapies?
Nutritional IV therapies can help improve a variety of illnesses and health problems, including:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Chronic pain
- Respiratory infections
- Muscle spasms
Intravenous therapies can also help improve the condition of your skin, relieve stress, and boost your immune system. If you have an illness that prevents you from eating enough, or impedes your body’s ability to absorb nutrients through your digestive system, IV therapy may be beneficial to your overall health and wellness. Additionally, you may benefit from high doses of vitamin C administered intravenously as part of your treatment for certain types of cancer.
What can I expect from nutritional IV therapy?
Most nutritional IV therapy treatments take about 20 minutes. You sit or lie down comfortably while your provider inserts a needle into your arm and allows the vitamins to slowly enter your bloodstream. You feel a slight pinch at the insertion point of the needle, which is easy to tolerate.
After that, there’s no pain as you relax and allow the nutrients to flow into your blood. You may feel the effects shortly after you receive an IV therapy drip. Depending on your health needs, the naturopathic medical team at Genesis Natural Medicine Center creates an IV solution that’s best for you.
IV therapy may be part of your overall treatment plan for a variety of health issues. In conjunction with oral supplements and other treatments, nutritional IV therapy can help improve your quality of life.
