Individuals across the globe are following sensible exercise and nutrition plans to reach optimal health. Despite these efforts, the majority of both men and women are consistently suffering from dehydration, malnutrition and toxicity. They are generally not even aware of these conditions. This is because most people do not drink nearly enough fluids, are consuming foods without enough or the correct nutrients and are exposed to the dangerous toxins in the environment on a daily basis. When these elements are combined with potential diseases, illnesses and a busy lifestyle filled with stress, the body is pushed to the limit. The healthiest body absorbs just fifteen percent of all the hydration received from drinks, food and oral supplements. This means something extra is necessary to fill in the gaps. This is where IV therapy becomes important.
Even if the individual resides in an area with minimal pollution, purchases just healthy and organic foods, uses cleaners for their home containing no chemicals, drinks enough water and consumes a healthy and nutritious diet, they are still impacted by the same conditions. IV therapy is an excellent tool used by medical professionals for replenishing the nutritional and micronutrient status of numerous individuals. According to studies, the vitamins administered during this therapy improve overall wellness, help attain optimal health and improve numerous medical conditions. The reason this treatment is both efficient and effective at replenishing minerals and vitamins is the digestive system is bypassed. This enables the individual to receive 100 percent absorption.
Multivitamins, medications and foods must be swallowed whole or chewed. Either way, they are broken down by the acid in your stomach. The process of absorption and digestion begins in your small intestine. The food is then broken down by enzymes into tiny molecular pieces. This process eventually results in amino acids. The amino acids are absorbed by the small intestine and then sent to your blood, where they travel to your liver. This is the primary organ for detoxification. The assimilation of the minerals and vitamins contained in your food is an extremely complex process. There are so many steps that this process can easily be interrupted. This is one of the reasons this therapy is so important.
IV vitamins enable 100 percent absorption because both minerals and vitamins are sent directly to your blood. This means a lot of people can receive more efficient benefits from this therapy as opposed to taking medications or food orally. One of the most frequently used IV’s for this therapy is called a Myer’s cocktail. This specific therapy was named after Dr. Myer. The original contents of this treatment remain unknown because the exact contents were never written down. Dr. John Myer’s patients stated a slow push of vitamins was performed with a ten millimeter syringe to deliver the nutrients directly into the vein. There are currently different minerals and vitamins used for the Myer’s cocktail. This is used for the treatment of specific diseases.
An IV bag is currently used for the Myer’s cocktail as opposed to using a syringe to push the vitamins into your vein. This enables you to receive more of the nutrients and vitamins. The most common nutrients used in the IV include vitamin C, magnesium chloride, B complex and calcium chloride. Due to the high concentration of the dosage, this therapy is rarely recommended more than twice a month. Your system will retain the vitamins for about two or three weeks to maintain your levels. This is dependent on the reason you are receiving the treatment and your unique needs.
The treatment is free of stress, generally well-tolerated and effective. The risks are virtually nonexistent. This is simply a good option for providing your body with the necessary amount of minerals and vitamins that it requires for optimal functioning. This is an excellent option for increasing the amount of your vitamin supplement content actually absorbed by your body. When you take vitamins orally, only a small amount makes it into your bloodstream. This means most of the vitamins are not transported to your cells. This can lead to a micronutrient deficiency. The reason for the popularity of this therapy is large amounts of important vitamins can be sent directly into your bloodstream.
The process begins when you are tested to determine exactly what and how much your body needs for the preparation of a customized IV vitamin solution. This ensures you will be receiving the correct dosage of vitamins and minerals for your individual wants and needs. The treatment is usually a gradual administration through an IV. This process generally takes less than one hour. It is important not to rush your treatment. This can result in a feeling of warmth due to the fast introduction of magnesium into your circulatory system. If your IV is administered slowly, this sensation is usually eliminated. Rushing your treatment can also result in your tasting vitamins once your treatment has been completed.
A lot of issues can result from a vitamin deficiency. Some of these issues can include:
• Difficulty sleeping or insomnia
• Tiredness throughout the day
• A heightened sensitivity to light
• A decrease in physical performance
• Undesirable weight gain
• An increased period of time necessary for recovery
• A decrease in cognitive function
When the ideal levels of nutrients and vitamins have been restored in your body, all of these symptoms can usually be either eliminated or reduced. Numerous individuals have stated just minutes after completing their treatment, they felt better. Due to the wide range of symptoms triggered by a vitamin deficiency, numerous different IV combinations are available. The invention of the Myer’s cocktail occurred during the 1960s. Since then, more and more cocktails have been created for the treatment of specific deficiencies. This means the one-size-fits-all approach does not work with this therapy. The contents of every IV must be customized for the specific needs of each individual. The benefits include:
• A decrease in the signs of the aging process
• An improvement in the quality of sleep
• Fighting off the flu or a cold
• Improved physical performance
• An improved complexion
• Improved cognitive function and mood
• An energy boost
• The loss of weight
• An increase in the time required for recovery
• A decrease in the number of migraines
Your gastrointestinal tract or GI tract is contained within your digestive system. This includes your gallbladder, pancreas and liver. The most complicated portion of the digestive system is your GI tract. This is due to the hollow organs running in a twisting path throughout your system. As food travels along this path, it breaks down into proteins, carbohydrates, minerals, nutrients, fats, vitamins and water. This enables absorption by your bloodstream and disbursement all over your body. Although most individuals have a fairly efficient digestive tract, it is usually not efficient enough to achieve optimal results. The nutrients derived from food are dependent on the way they are processed. Your digestive tract efficiency is determined by the way your food is broken down by the microbes.
Your digestion is also impacted by the way you consume your food. Your body needs time for all of the nutrients you consume orally to be absorbed. All of them will not be absorbed by your body. This often makes it hard to provide your body with enough vitamins. IV therapy bypasses your digestive tract. This means the most important nutrients are delivered right to your bloodstream. It is important to note this will boost your health as opposed to replacing meals.

This is because if your stomach is empty when the IV is administered, you can become nauseous due to the B vitamins. If you are receiving magnesium, it is extremely important your IV is delivered slowly to avoid any potential side effects. Special care will be taken with frail and elderly individuals. In these cases, the administration of the vitamin push or IV is generally slowed down even further. This is an excellent solution for helping eliminate the possibility of any adverse effects.
Individuals using diuretic medications also require special care. This is because these medications result in the loss of a lot of potassium.
