IV drip therapy is a health care treatment that delivers a customized selection of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to a patient via a catheter inserted into his or her vein. It is used to combat nutritional deficiencies, dehydration and general malaise and ill health, quickly restoring the body’s supply of vital nutrients so that optimal health can be achieved. Take a look at five important ways that IV drip therapy can revamp your health:
Add Valuable Nutrients to Your Body
First and foremost, IV drip therapy delivers nutrients to the body quickly. In a perfect world, everyone would eat the right foods in the right amounts to guarantee the delivery of these nutrients to his or her body. In developing countries, however, most don’t, leaving much of the world’s population at a deficient. Even in industrialized nations many struggle to reach the EAR, or the estimated amount of nutrients needed to meet the requirements of at least 50% of healthy individuals in a group. Inadequate diets, as well as medications and/or diseases that interfere with nutrient absorption, make it difficult for thousands of people in the U.S. alone to maintain sufficient levels of nutrients at any one time. Supplements can help, but they take time for the body to absorb and begin to work. IV drip therapy is a better option because it delivers nutrients directly into the bloodstream so that they are immediately available for uptake in the body.
Rid Your Body of Toxins
In addition to environmental pollutants and other unstable molecules (called free radicals) that enter the body, there are toxins that are created by the body itself as natural by-products of various cellular processes. IV drip therapy can be used to supply the body with powerful antioxidants that help combat free radicals and even remove them from the body.
Hydrate Your Body
The high water content of IV drip therapy solutions means patients receive instant hydration, creating pressure in the body’s cells that supports their structure and enables them to function at an optimal level.
Of course, vitamins and minerals are essential sources of fuel for the body, supplying it with the energy needed to carry out normal cellular functions. If any nutrients are missing from the body, cells don’t have the tools they need to regenerate and are unable to replace dead, decayed and damaged tissue. IV drip therapy can be utilized to boost natural regeneration within the body and, thus, potentially slow the progression of degenerative disease.
Improve Your Natural Immunity
Finally, IV drip therapy is a great way to bolster the immune system. Studies show that several types of vitamins are especially critical for the development of immune cells, vitamins A, C, E and B-6, along with zinc, selenium, iron, and copper, in particular. When these nutrients are included in an IV drip therapy, patients usually feel and heal better!
