Life can take a toll on your body. Each day, you’re exposed to environmental toxins that challenge your physiology. And situations such as dehydration, aging, nutrient deficiencies, illness, medical treatments, and stress can wear your body down and leave you feeling fatigued.
IV therapy offers an excellent way to refresh your body and give yourself the revitalizing boost you need to feel like yourself again. This exciting treatment delivers replenishing fluids and nutrients directly into your bloodstream when you need them most.
At Living Waters Regenerative Medicine Center in Gulf Breeze, Florida, integrative and internal medicine physician Deborah D. Viglione, MD, can provide you with personalized IV therapy treatments that are custom-formulated to give you just the boost you need. Here, we explain how IV therapy works and what you can expect from your treatment.
Fluids and more
IV therapy revitalizes your body with fluids. But your IV contains more than just water. It’s a customized cocktail of vitamins, minerals, ozone, and even medications such as antibiotics or anti-nausea medications if you need them.
Some of the nutrients you may receive include B vitamins, which boost metabolism; vitamin C, which helps strengthen your immune system; magnesium, which plays an important role in reducing inflammation; and antioxidants that contribute to heart health and protection from cancer.
Your IV may also contain a compound known as ozonated saline, which is a type of bio-oxidative therapy. This therapy delivers healing oxygen that can help destroy harmful cells.
If you have an illness caused by exposure to heavy metals, your IV therapy may also be designed to support chelation, which helps reduce the burden that heavy metals place on your body.
Receiving IV treatment for a range of conditions
People turn to IV therapy for replenishment in response to some of the following conditions:
- General fatigue
- Challenging athletic performance or strenuous exercise
- Chronic medical conditions
- Jet lag
- Heavy metal-related illness
- Recovery from illness
- Treatment for serious medical conditions, such as cancer
To administer IV therapy, your provider inserts a small needle with a catheter (thin tube) into one of your veins. Your replenishing treatment flows directly into your bloodstream while you relax, and your blood carries them throughout your body.
Most people report feeling energized by their IV therapy. You may even notice that your skin looks better and you appear to have a glow of good health. Some patients think of IV therapy as a mini vacation.
