Energize with IV Vitamin Therapy

IV-vitamin-therapyFeeling sick or run down? Need a boost for an upcoming sporting event? Try IV vitamin therapy, an infusion of vitamins that helps treat and prevent a wide variety of conditions and helps improve overall health and wellbeing. This month, buy three and get the fourth free!

How do you know if it's right for you? Here are three reasons to try IV vitamin therapy:

1. You caught a bug.

When your defenses are down, it pays to nourish your troops with the best available resources. While oral vitamin C supplements have limited absorption and gastrointestinal side effects at higher doses, an immune infusion provides a high dose of vitamin C that your body can actually absorb and utilize. Along with vitamin C, you will receive a mixture of B vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and hydrating fluids to reduce cold and flu symptoms while fighting the bug. At early signs of a cold, this treatment can prevent progression and get you back on track.

2. You are chronically tired

If you are dragging through your days, a weekly Myers' Cocktail should be a part of your plan to bounce back. Chronic fatigue can be caused by stress. That's because in moments of high stress, our bodies require more fuel to keep going. If you have experienced prolonged stress, your nutrient reserves could be zapped. The Myers' Cocktail provides a combination of energizing nutrients, including vitamin B12 and selenium.

3. You are training for a race or sporting event

Although exercise certainly makes us feel better, long and hard training can be stressful on the body. With exercise, our stress hormone, cortisol, becomes elevated and the body taps into its reserves. Amino acid drips can supply the body with the building blocks needed to maintain muscle, hydrate and cope with the stress of training. Treatment frequency varies depending on the intensity and duration of the training program, but most clients find that these infusions make workouts more productive and recovery faster.
