The New Year brings new resolutions, hopes of new opportunities, new outlooks, and new goals. One thing people lack when making their New Year’s resolutions is self-care; to attain your goals and improve your life, you need to feel good first! Holidays are a time of high stress, so we see a lot of fatigue, colds, and the flu.
Nutritional IV therapy, as the name implies, is delivering specific vitamins and minerals via intravenous solution, or IV. When you take a supplement, those nutrients in that capsule have to be absorbed. They first have to go to the stomach, hopefully, withstand the stomach acid, get into the small intestine, and then be absorbed there. If you have gastrointestinal symptoms/issues and or a poor diet, this process may not work as well as it should, and so you may not be absorbing what you’re taking! By receiving nutrients via IV, you bypass the entire gastrointestinal tract, making absorption maximal and thus optional.
Nutritional IV therapy may help the following:
Improve fatigue • Rehydrate your body
Reduce inflammation • Regulate hormones
Provide energy or fight off a cold.
We offer this service at Revitalize. Since we emphasize an evidence-based approach, we do require a screening including testing before receiving your first IV; this is to make sure you don’t have a reason not to get it and to ensure your safety.
Eating less processed food, drinking less alcohol, and getting enough sleep during the holidays can help prevent fatigue or getting a cold. But if it does happen, we now can help.
