Reasons to Consider IV Therapy



Reasons to Consider IV Therapy

Dehydration is a common yet potentially dangerous problem when you lose or use more fluids than you intake. It may be due to illness, vigorous exercise, alcohol consumption, or high heat. Regardless of the cause, dehydration effects such as headaches, low energy levels, constipation, and poor physical performance are usually painful and annoying. The good news is that The Total You Medical Spa offers Memorial aesthetic RN, IV therapy being one of many services. It is the fastest way to rehydrate and boost nutrition at a cellular level. Below are other benefits of IV therapy.

Cures hangover symptoms

You are most likely to have a hangover after a wild night out with friends due to the dehydration effects of alcohol. Besides being painful and frustrating, hangovers can also interfere with job performance. Typical hangover symptoms include fatigue, excessive thirst, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, and headaches. The good news is that IV hydration can help restore fluids in your body within the shortest time. Healthcare providers also add electrolytes, including sodium chloride, to help relieve dehydration symptoms, including dizziness, thirst, and fatigue. Many people also choose to ass anti-nausea or anti-inflammatory medication to eliminate inflammation caused by excessive drinking. Most people experience symptom relief after an hour of IV hydration.

Promotes weight loss

Losing extra weight requires effort and consistency, which can be challenging for most people. For this reason, many people combine their weight loss strategies with IV therapy to boost their weight loss efforts. IV therapy for weight loss uses three main supplements: carnitine, alpha-lipoic acid, and lipotropic injections.

Carnitine is an amino acid that delivers fat to the mitochondria cells for use as energy. It is a conditionally essential nutrient, meaning we can get it from our diet, but certain people can’t. They include vegans and individuals with medical problems that inhibit nutrient absorption.

Alpha-lipoic acid is an organic compound that works with the body’s mitochondria to boost metabolism, eliminate toxins and prevent inflammation. And lipotropic injections are injectable compounds that burn fat.

It is essential to understand that IV therapy is not a substitute for other weight loss processes. It works best when combined with regular exercise and healthy eating.

Eases anxiety and promotes relaxation effects

Many people report feeling more at ease after IV therapy. Your provider may add magnesium sulfate to the drip solution; this electrolyte helps lower blood pressure and may also:

  • Relax your muscles
  • Calm feelings of anxiety
  • Support immune function
  • Prevent migraines and headaches
  • Promote a good night’s sleep

Besides IV hydration, Magnesium sulfate is used in other applications, including Epsom salt treatments, to offer the same calming effects.

Promotes good cardiovascular health

Drip therapy can also improve the function of your cardiovascular system, thanks to add-ins such as arginine, trio amino, calcium, and magnesium sulfate. Tri amino and arginine are amino acids that help relax your blood vessels; this lowers blood pressure and can also help with symptoms of erectile dysfunction.

On the other hand, calcium is not only beneficial for strong bones and teeth, but it also regulates the contraction and dilation of blood vessels. Magnesium is also key in the regulation of blood pressure.
