IV Myers Restorative Treatment

There are undoubtedly times in your life when you just don’t feel like your best. Perhaps you haven’t been eating right, not exercising enough, or have been less than kind to your body. Improving your patterns of self-care are usually sufficient to get you back to normal. However, when you are doing all the proper things to keep your body running smoothly, you may still feel off. At times like this, IV therapy can be an effective way to recharge your health, boost your immune system, jump-start your energy levels, and improve the overall functioning and recovery abilities of your body.

What is IV therapy?

The IV Myers Restorative Treatment is a type of preventive medicine that optimizes immunity and helps purge the body of disease. IV therapy is often used to help treat conditions like chronic fatigue, stress, muscle pain, spasms, respiratory ailments, and as a counterpart to cancer treatment.

As a preventive measure, IV therapy is administered to patients intravenously, delivering vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to the body in high levels, which means they impact your system immediately. These powerful cocktails can kill viruses and support the glands while working synergistically with supplements that are taken orally.

All vitamins work as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents. When you need help with tissue recovery and repair, IV therapy optimally increases immunity and offers results like faster healing time and enhanced overall functionining.

Are there different types of IV therapy?

There are two main types of IV therapy: nutritional and chelation. Through a nutritional IV, you will receive vitamin C, glutathione, B12, calcium, magnesium, and more. Chelation IV therapy is intended for detox, adrenals, wellness, and anti-aging.

IV therapy is not one size fits all. The treatment is customized to be as beneficial as possible to individual patients so that achieving concrete and therapeutic results through preventive medical efforts is successful.

What is glutathione?

Glutathione is not an often-heard word, but it is the most powerful antioxidant in the human body. Good levels of glutathione are critical for a person to maintain a smooth-operating immune system.

Glutathione is also known for:

  • Aiding in liver detox by helping to remove chemicals, drugs, and foreign bodies.
  • Contributing to tumor death (apoptosis).
  • Preventing and aiding in nerve damage (neuropathy).
  • Slowing the progression of Parkinson’s disease.
  • Decreasing free radical damage caused by exposure to radiation and toxicity.
  • Helping with weight loss.
  • Conjugating compounds like xenobiotics and carcinogens to help prevent cancer.

A naturally occurring substance, glutathione production and levels plummet when a person is sick or full of toxins. Compounding this problem is the fact that glutathione is a poorly absorbed antioxidant – unless administered intravenously.

Who needs IV therapy?

It could be argued that nearly anyone can benefit from IV therapy. Daily life is taxing and can be toxic depending on what you eat, where and how you work, and the chemicals and properties to which you are exposed. If any of your habits or health conditions prevent you from properly absorbing the necessary substances that your body needs, IV therapy can be the ideal solution. IV therapy bypasses the digestive system completely – an advantage because some nutrients are poorly absorbed by the body naturally – and allows the nutrients your body needs most to travel through your system immediately.

Patients can achieve higher-than-normal blood levels with intravenous therapy, which provide an immediate therapeutic response and correct deficiencies. These mega-doses of vitamins and minerals are customized to the needs of every individual patient. In its work as a health-booster, IV therapy also works by introducing antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents to the body. These perks ward against the development of disease or illness while also making it possible for bodily tissues to achieve recovery and repair themselves.

Say yes to IV therapy and preventive medicine

Ultimately, IV therapy corrects bodily deficiencies, and does so in an efficient manner. Most IVs are administered as drips or slow IV pushes and take 30 minutes to one hour to complete. Depending on your current well-being and health goals, one to 6 treatments may be recommended, 8 to 12 treatments, or more.
