Conditions Treated with IV Therapy

Because of illness or the normal course of aging, some people are unable to properly absorb the nutrients their body needs for optimal health. This is often due to issues with the gastrointestinal tract. Intravenous nutrient therapy (IV Therapy) is an alternate way for these people to receive the vitamins and minerals their body may be lacking. Nutrients are delivered directly to the blood stream and quickly transported to cell membranes that nourish the body.

Healthcare professionals who specialize in anti-aging or naturopathic medicine may recommend IV therapy as a means of reversing the effects of aging and strengthening the body’s immune system. IV therapy is also an effective treatment for a variety of health conditions, including the following:

Acute Muscle Spasm

Muscle spasms are often painful constrictions in the blood vessels, and through increased vitamin intake, the nourishment of muscles that have a tendency to spasm can be improved. When the blood is nourished with nutrients, it can nourish muscles and tissues as well, which may reduce muscle spasms. An IV Therapy doctor can concoct a combination of nutrients that will reduce acute muscle spasms.

Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome

High stress levels for an extended period of time often lead to Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome, or tired adrenal glands. People with Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome commonly suffer from constant mental and physical fatigue, insomnia, cravings for salty foods, intolerance to stress, and difficulty getting out of bed in the morning. Nutrients such as B Vitamins, high dosages of vitamin C, and Meyer’s Cocktail can often help to restore adrenal gland function and improve the symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome.

Allergies & Allergic Rhinitis

Increased inflammation in the body’s endocrine system can increase allergic responses. IV Therapy nutrient prescriptions that include glutathione, B Vitamins, magnesium, and Vitamin C can help the body’s immune system to function better and potentially decrease allergic reactions. Many patients that have participated in IV Therapy have been able to reduce allergic reactions to foods, animals, dust, and pollen.

Allergic rhinitis occurs when the immune system overreacts to allergens in the air, and many people experience sneezing, itchy eyes, and a runny or stuffy nose. This can happen with seasonal changes, but it is most common during the springtime. IV Therapy can supplement the immune system and reduce the severity of allergic rhinitis. An IV Therapy doctor can help patients to determine what combination of nutrients will best suit their specific needs.

Asthma

Asthma is a serious lung disease that is marked by acute attacks in response to a variety of triggers. During an attack, the airways become narrow and inflamed. This typically causes wheezing, shortness of breath, coughing, and a feeling of tightness in the chest.

Cancer & Chemotherapy

Along with improved nutrition and cancer-fighting medications, IV therapy can help to reduce or eliminate the symptoms associated with several types of cancer as well as aid in recovery from some of the cancer treatments that are hard on the body. Vitamin C is a common vitamin in almost every IV Drip and has scientifically proven to slow the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body. IV Drips containing high doses of Vitamin C can not only help prevent cancer cells from regenerating and growing, but also help patients recover from the drastic effects of chemotherapy.

Cardiovascular Disease

Cardiovascular disease is one of the most preventable diseases, and yet, it is the one of the biggest killers in the country. Avoiding foods high in unhealthy fats, too much meat, and getting healthy amounts of exercise can help to avoid the development of cardiovascular disease. Healthy amounts of nutrients can help to flush out unwanted lipids and maintain healthy heart function. An IV Therapy specialist can help patients to decide which combination of nutrients can best benefit their specific cardiovascular needs.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Patients with this disorder feel constantly exhausted, regardless of the number of hours of sleep they receive each night. It is a frustrating condition to have because it is not explained by an underlying disorder and is often misdiagnosed by doctors. IV therapy can be used to infuse the body with nutrients needed to sustain energy all day.

Chronic Urticaria

Stress, endocrine imbalances, and allergic reactions are often responsible for chronic urticarial reactions. Hives or urticarial outbreaks can be helped with nutrients that help the immune system and quell inflammation. B vitamins, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C, and glutathione can all help to improve immune function and reduce inflammation. An IV Therapy specialist can best help patients determine which nutrient combination will improve their chronic hives.

Dehydration

There are many levels of dehydration, which can range from life threatening to day-to-day dehydration. Many people do not drink enough water on a daily basis because they get too busy, forget, or do not like to drink water. Hydration in the body helps the kidneys to function and flush out waste, while eliminating sodium and maintaining electrolyte balance. IV Therapy can help men and women to regain hydration, eliminate toxins, and benefit their kidneys.

Depression

Nutrient deficits and toxicity can help to promote depression and poor moods in general. Glutathione, which is known to be a master detoxifier, can help to reduce the build up of toxins and help to improve overall moods. Vitamin C and B vitamins can also improve moods and help to reduce depression. An IV Therapy specialist can help patients that are encountering depression to determine which nutrients should be a part of their IV Therapy prescription in order to improve their specific condition.

Fatigue

Fast paced lifestyles, poor diets, lack of sleep, and mental or physical overwork are all factors in general fatigue. Many B vitamins that are offered in IV Therapy can help men and women to boost their energy levels throughout the day. While many foods contain B vitamins, the potency of these vitamins is often lost during the digestive process; however, IV Therapy injects the vitamins directly into the bloodstream, allowing them to be immediately used. An IV Therapy specialist can help patients to increase their general energy levels with specialized nutrient prescriptions.

Fibromyalgia

While fibromyalgia can occur in men, it mostly occurs in women over the age of 50. Symptoms such as widespread muscular pain, mental fogginess, tender points, fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, and depression can all occur with fibromyalgia. People that suffer with fibromyalgia often experience a greatly reduced quality of life. The nutrients in IV Therapy, such as glutathione, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and vitamin C can all help to reduce the inflammatory effects and symptoms of fibromyalgia.

Gluten Sensitivity & Celiac Disease

Gluten intolerance, which is sometimes known as Celiac Disease, occurs when gluten inflames the intestines, causing diarrhea, bleeding, abdominal pain, gas, and bloating. Many people are afflicted with this disorder, and they can greatly benefit from nutrients that reduce inflammation and allergic reactions. Nutrients such as glutathione, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and Vitamin C can help men and women with gluten intolerance to reduce intestinal inflammation caused from the intake of gluten.

Hangovers

A night of excessive drinking can lead to withdrawals the next day and symptoms that include a headache, drowsiness, sweating, nausea, poor concentration, dizziness, and anxiety. When a high level of alcohol is ingested, the byproducts can often increase toxicity in the liver, even after the symptoms of the dreaded hangover have faded away. Generally, it takes around 21 days for the cells of the liver to heal from one night of excessive drinking; however, many people may drink more frequently than every 21 days, leading to increased hepatic toxicity.

IV Therapy prescriptions that contain glutathione can help to flush out toxins from the liver and the bloodstream. Other nutrients can help the body to heal from repeated alcohol ingestion and replenish nutrients that are lost due to heavy drinking. IV Therapy cocktails that contain B Vitamins, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and Vitamin C can help men and women to improve their general health. An IV Therapy specialist can help patients to decide which nutrients are best for their individual lifestyle habits and personal health goals.

Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a dangerous blood borne virus that can have devastating consequences for the liver, as it often leads to cirrhosis. While the body tries to fight this virus, over 65% of people with Hepatitis C will have chronic hepatitis. Over time, the body’s attempt to fight the virus wears down immune function, and the byproducts of the virus can cause toxins to accumulate. A specialized IV Therapy concoction, such as Myer’s Cocktail can help to restore immune function and rid the body of viral toxins.

High Blood Pressure

Blood pressure is a set of numbers that measures the force of blood as it pushes against the artery walls. When the heart has to work too hard to pump blood, it results in high blood pressure. This in turn can lead to stroke, heart failure, coronary artery disease, and kidney failure. IV therapy can be used to provide the body with nutrients that can aid in natural blood pressure regulation and stabilization.

Hyperthyroidism

An excessive production of thyroid hormone can lead to hyperthyroidism, which often presents with symptoms that include panic attacks, anxiety, an increased heart rate, weight loss, insomnia, and increased bowel movements. Medication is often used to help balance the production of thyroid hormone; however, IV Therapy can benefit the body’s overall health in order to improve the consequences of hyperthyroidism. Vitamins, nutrients, and minerals that benefit the endocrine system can be added to IV Therapy prescriptions.

Migraines

A migraine is an extremely painful form of headache caused by the enlargement of blood vessels and the release of nerve fibers located near these blood vessels. During a migraine, a person can experience visual hallucinations, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and a complete intolerance for light and noise. Diet and hydration have been shown to reduce migraine frequency and severity, and IV nutrient therapy can provide the necessary dietary supplements and added hydration to promote this relief.

Narcotic Withdrawal

Narcotics cause incredible damage to the nervous and endocrine system, while causing imbalances in different parts of the brain and with neurotransmitters. They also cause toxicity to accumulate in the liver and the bloodstream. IV Therapy can use specialized nutrients, such as glutathione, to rid the body of harmful toxins that are leftover from narcotic use. Specialized prescriptions, such as Meyer’s cocktail can also replenish nutrients that were eaten up in the body’s attempts to maintain homeostasis during drug use. An IV Therapy specialist can help patients to regain their health and get through the aftermath of narcotic use with specialized protocols.

Macular Degeneration

This eye disease is the leading cause of vision loss and affects more than 10 million Americans. Macular degeneration occurs when the central part of the eye’s retina starts to deteriorate. The central portion of the retina sends visual messages from the optic nerve of the eye to the brain. People with this condition have difficulty reading fine print, recognizing colors or faces, and even driving a car. Proper vitamin intake and nutrition are directly related with eyesight and IV therapy can be used to supplement the body with these nutrients.

Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s is a progressive movement disorder, which means that its symptoms typically worsen over time. People with this condition usually experience tremors in the hands, face, jaw, arms, or legs. As Parkinson’s progresses, the body becomes rigid and the person moves extremely slowly. Balance and coordination are affected as well. IV therapy has been used as an alternative treatment to help ease the symptoms associated with Parkinson’s Disease by promoting the body’s ability to function efficiently.

Upper Respiratory Tract Infections

Many people suffer from colds or upper respiratory tract infections once or twice per year when the weather changes or if they do not wear enough clothes outside. However, some people get upper respiratory tract infections several times per year, despite taking measures to maintain good health. Nutrients in IV Therapy can help to boost immune function and prevent the recurrence of upper respiratory tract infections. Vitamin B12, in particular, is known to boost immunity and prevent seasonal illnesses, such as colds or flus.
