Vitamin deficiency is a widespread problem, but surprisingly, you don’t hear much about it in pop culture. We all need vitamins and minerals, and a lack of the correct balance of those nutrients can lead to fatigue, weakened immunity, aches, pains, sleep trouble, and even mental problems such as depression and anxiety. In today’s world, with over-farmed soil and genetically modified fruits and vegetables, what we eat rarely provides us with all the vitamins and minerals we need. That is where IV infusions come in. Even a healthy body could periodically use a little boost from vitamins that increase energy, such as Vitamin C and B vitamins, or an immunity infusion during flu season. But vitamin IV therapy is especially useful to those that are suffering from chronic illness, migraines, heavy metal poisoning, or chronic fatigue syndrome.
Benefits of IV Therapy
An IV drip can boost the immune system of a deficient patient, without altering the immune system itself in any way. Someone suffering from a chronic viral infection can be given high-dose Vitamin C to fight the infection, and not worry about exceeding the limits, since a body can handle mega doses of Vitamin C with no side effects whatsoever.
IV infusions may vary, and they may include different “cocktails” of vitamins and minerals, depending on the condition being treated. A “Myer’s cocktail” consists of both vitamins and minerals, including calcium, which is vital for immunity as well as strong bones. This can help with allergies, fatigue, and a host of other problems.
IV treatments can also be preventative. Glutathione is an antioxidant, which helps detoxify the cells as well as proofing your body against illness.
Another treatment is NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), which helps your body with metabolism, fatigue, healing, brain function, and other age-related issues.
Beyond vitamin infusions, there is another form of IV therapy. You may have heard of chelation, but you might be unsure what it can be used for or what it is. Instead of putting something in, this IV treatment takes something out: heavy metals. Chelation is a way of removing heavy metals from your body safely so that they are excreted in your urine. Because exposure to heavy metals is so common, many people have no idea that their bodies are riddled with mercury or lead, and that this is the real cause of their fatigue or lowered immunity.
Most people think of heavy metal exposure in terms of dental work (for mercury) or working in a chemical plant or other extreme cases. But vaccines also include heavy metals, and most people are exposed to those. Heavy metals can lead to anxiety, sleeplessness, nervous system problems, and there is research suggesting that they are at the root of many chronic illnesses. Chelation can pull these heavy metals out and allow the body to heal from exposure, and function normally again.
During a treatment, an IV is simply inserted into a vein, and the nutrients are administered through a liquid that is dripped slowly into the bloodstream. There are no side effects because nothing that is going into your body is unnatural. Most people feel a boost of energy on an immediate basis, and the excess fluid is simply excreted through your urine, the same as if you had just consumed a 2-liter bottle of orange juice.
