Do IV Vitamins really Work?
IV vitamin therapy has been one of Hollywood’s best-kept secrets until Instagram influencers began spreading the word across social media. Celebrities like TV personality, Chrissy Tiegan, Grammy award artist Madonna, and Oscar winner Brad Pitt, have all sworn by it to keep them at the top of their game.
Why has IV vitamin drips like the Myers’ Cocktail and Glutathione have become one of the most sought-after health and wellness services in the nation? It has so many incredible benefits.
At our office, clients use IV therapy to manage chronic conditions like fatigue, migraines, asthma. It’s also the first choice for getting over a hangover or boosting immunity and energy
Today we’ll discuss the science behind the vitamin IV craze, along with the amazing benefits.
The Facts on IV Vitamins
At Total Health and Wellness, the two most popular options for IV vitamin sessions are the Myers Cocktail and Glutathione.
The Myers Cocktail is the brainchild of Dr. John Myers. Many researchers consider Dr. Myers to be a pioneer for vitamin infusion therapy. Originally, he was searching for an innovative approach to treating chronically ill patients when he discovered vitamin infusions.
Good food is filled with nutrients and minerals that are essential to optimal health and wellness. Unfortunately, many of the staples in the American diet are high in calories but low in vital vitamins. Dr. Myers decided to take a holistic approach to patient care. Instead of prescribing prescription medications with lackluster results, he incorporated healing by way of nutritional therapy.
In many cases, eating fruits and veggies isn’t enough. The quality of the soil is often poor and lacks many of the same minerals that are crucial for growing fruits that are rich in nutrients like magnesium.
Years of a diet built on poor eating habits can cause the gut to become inflamed and stop working, making it utterly impossible to absorb the proper nutrients not only in the foods we eat but in our vitamins and supplements as well. Many clients don’t even realize that certain medications can also inhibit your ability to synthesize nutrients and virtually heal yourself from the inside out.
What are the Benefits?
The digestive process doesn’t capture all of the vitamins within the food. IV vitamin therapy allows a qualified physician to bypass the digestive system so you can absorb 100% of the nutrients. It’s a quick and easy process, lasting only 30 - 45 minutes, with minimal waste with maximum effects.
The Myers’ cocktail is a combination of multiple B vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium, calcium, and selenium. Many of my clients will book monthly IV sessions to boost their immune system. Whether you travel for work or play, and the IV infusion can fortify your body’s natural defense systems, so you avoid catching the common cold. IV vitamin infusions have become a popular part of many Millenials’ back-to-school prep. Classroom stress and dorm-style living can make you vulnerable to coming down with the flu.
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that has been linked to reversing signs of premature aging by combating cellular damage and revitalizing the skin. You can look and feel younger from the
The B vitamins and glutathione work together to naturally detoxify the body and reenergize your system at the cellular level.
At our office, I like to offer personalized micronutrient testing so we can figure out which vitamins you may be lacking and deliver the ideal dosage for the greatest impact.
Professional athletes will book IV Vitamin treatments to speed up recovery periods after intense workouts. A session can relieve sore muscles and combat exhaustion.
Vitamin infusions are an incredibly popular “hangover” treatment, too. The Myers’ cocktail contains components to rehydrate your system and quickly metabolize alcohol.
Chronic Health Complications
Both the Glutathione IV treatment and the Myers’ Cocktail work together to combat chronic fatigue, asthma, and fibromyalgia by supplying an extra dose of nutrients and energy to tired, overworked cells.
It can also relieve common symptoms associated with PMS and menstruation likes mood swings and pain. I have several clients who will come in religiously either before their period or during their cycle to manage any discomfort.
Every client is different. If you’re using IV vitamin therapy to manage chronic migraines, I suggest coming in before or during your next migraine to try it out.
Why do I use it?
Do you ever have that feeling that you’re just not yourself? You can’t manage to think clearly or focus on anything. It’s like your brain feels dull. Whenever I find myself coming down with a serious case of brain fog, I know it’s time for a glutathione IV session. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that instantly boosts memory and clears brain fog. I can get rust out and get back to doing what I love, working with my clients!
I also use it as a treat after a stressful week. For a portion of my day, I get to relax in the therapy
room and catch up on some much needed “me time,” unwinding with a gentle blue light and calming music.
