More professionals are turning to a surprising treatment to reduce stress and improve their health – IV Vitamin therapy. But what is IV therapy, and how does it work?
What is IV Therapy?
IV therapy uses a mixture of vitamins, like vitamin C and magnesium to improve energy levels and boost immune systems. They are administered via fluid IV, bypassing the digestive system to enable the vitamins to work quickly. While this sounds like a very unusual treatment, it’s becoming more and more popular, with busy professionals enjoying the benefits that can come from powerful vitamins.
How Does IV Therapy Work?
You will receive a mixture of vitamins in liquid form, directed through a small tube into the vein. Treatment can take anywhere from 20 minutes up to an hour. You can get IV treatment in a clinic, at home, or even at work.
Is IV Therapy Safe?
Yes, if done correctly. IV therapy needs to be done by trained professionals using clean, sterile equipment. You can always ask your practitioner how they keep their clients safe as well as their qualifications and training.
Here are a few reasons why IV therapy is so tempting for professionals:
Stress – Stress can impact your body and mind in a myriad of ways. As well as having a detrimental impact on your wellbeing, high stress levels can interfere with productivity and cause you to make mistakes. You may always feel under pressure, which is difficult in a fast-paced, professional environment. If you need to make quick decisions, stress can get in the way.
You may also experience headaches, insomnia, weight loss or weight gain, and blood pressure problems. Fluid IV treatments including magnesium can help with this, particularly if you are suffering from sleepless nights. More sleep can help you be more productive at work and reduce sick days as you will be more likely to fight off infections.
Sickness – High-pressure environments combined with close working conditions mean that sickness can sweep through the workplace quickly. When you are stressed, your immune system may become compromised, meaning you’re more likely to get ill. Immune-boosting IV treatments, including vitamin C and selenium, can help your white blood cells fight off infections.
Energy – If you feel constantly tired, it might be that your body needs a vitamin boost to help you to keep going. Long working hours and stressful situations can drain you of energy, so if you find yourself crashing in the evenings and at the weekends, a vitamin drip can help you. B vitamins, magnesium, and other ingredients like taurine can give you a much-needed energy boost.
