What is IV Hydration or nutrition therapy?
When a person receives an IV vitamin treatment, they’re receiving a liquid mixture of vitamins and minerals into a vein. This allows the nutrients to be absorbed quickly and directly into the bloodstream, a method that produces higher levels of the vitamins and minerals in your body, compared with absorption through the digestive track.
Several factors affect our body’s ability to absorb nutrients in the stomach; these include age, metabolism, health status, genetics, interactions with other products we consume, and the physical and chemical makeup of the nutritional supplement or food. Higher levels of the vitamins and minerals in your bloodstream lead to greater uptake into cells, which theoretically will use the nutrients to maintain health and fight illness.
At Wyoming Wellness Center we offer several vitamin infusions that can be used to treat a wide variety of health concerns. One of the most popular is Myers' Cocktail. Conditions that have responded positively to the Myers’ cocktail treatment include asthma, migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, pain, allergies, and sinus and respiratory tract infections. A number of other disease states, including angina and hyperthyroidism, have also shown promising results to IV vitamin infusions.
Many people are also using IV vitamin therapy for quick rehydration after an intense sporting event, such as running a marathon, to cure a hangover, or for improved skin clarity.
