IV therapy is an alternative medicine treatment to give you a large amount of specific vitamins and minerals through your veins, a process sometimes called an infusion.
Many different vitamins and minerals can be included in IV therapy, with each carefully chosen for their specific positive effects on your health.
Two of the most popular types of IV therapy are:
The Myers’ cocktail is a combination of vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium, calcium, and sterile water.
This therapy has been found effective for a broad spectrum of issues, including fatigue, muscle spasms, respiratory tract infections, migraines, and many other health problems.
NAD is a coenzyme. It occurs naturally in the human body and helps to protect your cells. NAD can also help with cellular regeneration, and it’s crucial for healthy bodily function. As you age, however, your body makes lesser amounts of NAD.
NAD therapy can restore these higher levels. This type of therapy may help to promote healthy brain function, slow the aging process, and diminish inflammation, along with other positive effects.
While you can take vitamins and minerals by mouth, the effects just aren’t the same as those of IV therapy. When taken orally, capsules and tablets must make the long trek through your digestive system.
During the digestive process, you can lose about half (or more) of the vitamin or mineral, so you end up absorbing far less than you actually take. With IV therapy, you absorb every bit of the vitamins and minerals in your infusion immediately because you avoid the whole digestive process.
During IV therapy, the House Call Doctors of Pacific Northwest PLLC team helps you to get situated in a comfortable position in a chair (either in the office or in your home).
They use a very thin needle to reach an arm or hand vein, and then slide a thin, hollow tube (catheter) into your vein and pull the needle out. The solution drips into your veins over 45-60 minutes. You can take a nap, read, or watch TV during your infusion.
IV therapy can have immediate results, so why wait? Book your IV therapy by calling House Call Doctors of Pacific Northwest PLLC or clicking the online scheduling tool now.
