In today’s fast-paced world, it can be easy to forget that your body needs a broad range of micronutrients to perform its millions of biological processes. Sadly, our food supply has been depleted of nutrients by over-farming, excessive food processing, and chemical pesticides and fertilizers that make fresh foods toxic to human health.
There are thousands of drugs on the market designed to offset the metabolic consequences of nutrient deficiency, but at the end of the day, food is the only medicine that can truly bring healing.
When nutrients are severely depleted, IV vitamin therapy can be a fast and effective way to give your body a megadose of micronutrients to restore optimal health. Because micronutrients are classified as food and not drugs, you don’t need a prescription to enjoy all the benefits of IV vitamin therapy.
Here are five life-saving ways that Vitamin IV therapy can keep you healthy and help you heal.
5 Lifesaving Benefits of Vitamin IV Therapy
1. Boost your immune system
Stress, poor diet, lack of sleep and too little exercise form a recipe for burnout that undermines your immune system. In fact, dozens of studies of hospitalized Covid patients point to low levels of Vitamin D, Vitamin C, magnesium and other vital nutrients. When coupled with obesity and metabolic syndrome, those shared common denominators can lead to death.
In cancer patients, doctors use high dose Vitamin C IV therapy to offset immune-suppressing responses to cancer treatments. Optimizing your nutritional status can help protect you from disease, and help you recover more quickly when you do become ill.
2. Speed recovery from drugs and alcohol
Opioid addiction has reached epidemic proportions in the USA, with more people dying of opioid overdose than from the coronavirus in 2021. People who are breaking free of substance abuse are turning to NAD IV therapy to help escape the clutches of addiction.
NAD is a powerful coenzyme found in every living cell. NAD IV therapy has been recognized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as the best current solution for substance addiction and post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS).
A growing body of research has shown NAD IV therapy to significantly reduce acute withdrawal symptoms from alcohol and opioids, making it possible for millions to kick their deadly habits.
NAD IV therapy is also used to effectively treat symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a condition that all too often leads to suicide.
3. Treat severe dehydration
Acute dehydration from sports, exercise, soaring temperatures and high humidity can be deadly. Your body is made up of nearly 70% water, and your brain exceeds 75%. When you become dehydrated, your systems and vital organs cannot function.
Not only do multiple biological processes require a fluid medium, but your brain, heart and central nervous system rely on electrolytes to transport nerve impulses and sustain a regular heartbeat. Without adequate water and electrolytes, your cognitive function takes a nosedive, making you fatigued, foggy-brained and unable to perform at your peak.
Drinking water alone is not enough to rehydrate. You need electrolytes as well, and drinking too much water when your electrolytes are already depleted can further dilute them, increasing your risk of death. Rehydration IV therapy is a fast and effective solution for restoring your fluid and electrolyte levels, to quickly put your body back in balance.
4. Replenish depleted nutrients
Nutrient deficiency is a precursor for a number of metabolic problems that undermine your health. One nutrient in particular that is often deficient in vegans and vegetarians is Vitamin B12, which is derived almost exclusively from animal products.
B12 is essential for a healthy cardiovascular and central nervous system. It plays a key role in red blood cell formation and in the formation of the protective myelin sheath that encases your nerves. Severe B12 deficiency can cause fatigue, shortness of breath, numbness, poor balance, and memory loss. Chronic deficiency can lead to premature death.
B12 IV therapy or B12 MIC injections can be lifesavers if you are deficient.
5. Detox from alcohol
Most people drink some type of alcohol, whether it’s beer, wine or hard liquor, and while it is socially acceptable, your body treats alcohol as a deadly toxin. When you consume more alcohol than your liver can process, it crosses the blood-brain barrier and dramatically affects your cognition. In severe cases, alcohol poisoning can lead to death.
A hangover is a cluster of metabolic symptoms from consuming too much alcohol, and if it doesn’t actually kill you, it can feel like death. There are dozens of folk remedies for hangover treatment, but most of them don’t help.
The only remedy that works to quickly banish hangover symptoms and restore metabolic balance is IV hangover therapy. An IV hangover cocktail rehydrates, restores electrolytes, and delivers potent medicine to reduce headache and nausea. An hour of IV hangover therapy can detoxify your body and banish symptoms so you can face the world as your best self.
