Optimizing your health and treating ailments or illnesses can be achieved through a variety of modalities. What works best for you and your individual health will depend on an array of factors and may also be influenced by whether you want to use like prescription medications which may come with a host of side effects or utilize other more holistic and natural modalities. One excellent tool that naturopathic practitioners use for both preventative medicine and the treatment of specific ailments or illnesses is IV therapy.
Although you can get many of the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients you need from nutrition and supplements, the majority of people do not consume a perfectly balanced diet at all times, or even consistently. Additionally, many health conditioners and diseases may inhibit your body’s ability to make necessary nutrients or absorb them when consumed. IV therapy works by bypassing the digestive system and supplying vitamins, minerals, and nutrients directly to the bloodstream for vastly superior absorption and rapid results.
IV therapy, also known as Infusion therapy should always be performed in a safe and reputable physician’s practice under the supervision and guidance of a naturopath to ensure that the process is safe and that you are getting exactly what you need for your unique health. As we enter cold and flu season, and will likely see an increase in COVID 19, most people want to do everything possible to boost their immunity naturally and avoid illness. IV therapy can be customized to what you need and can boost immunity when you need it most.
Additionally, your customized IV therapy can be strategically used as part of your holistic wellness plan for detoxification, adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue, chronic infections, allergies, and many other medical conditions. If you are an athlete or in a strict training program, IV therapy can be further customized to support athletic performance, reduce recovery time, and optimize performance. When used correctly under the supervision of a naturopathic practitioner, IV therapy can reduce medical expenses and decrease the time you spend in medical clinics, hospitals, and nursing homes – something everyone can appreciate!
