Moms can wear themselves thin always on the go, not getting enough sunlight, not eating right, missing sleep. If you are feeling worn down, have trouble sleeping, or feel low on energy, it may be time for a refresher. Consider IV hydration and vitamin therapy.

IV therapy has been utilized for over 50 years and allows for 100% absorption of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and IV fluids for overall mind-body wellness. It was developed by Dr. John Myers (the Myer’s cocktail) to help alleviate a variation of symptoms and conditions such as dehydration, chronic fatigue, brain fog, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, allergies, asthma, migraines, and hangovers. In recent years, IV wellness spas have expanded this therapy practices.

Whether you are experiencing basic hydration or need to increase your immunity, recovery, or energy and need vitamins and amino acids added to your drip, drips can be customized for your specific needs. Custom vitamin recipes can be concocted for energizing, fat burning, focus, performance, hydration, immunity, stress reduction, cellular repair, and vitamin replenishing. 

You’ll want to choose a practice whose IV infusion specialists are certified medical professionals trained and experienced in administering IV treatments. 

What happens when you get an IC drip or infusion?

Your IV is prepared using a localized numbing agent and very small needles so you will barely feel a thing (but everyone has a different pain threshold). You might feel some warmth as certain nutrients enter the bloodstream such as B vitamins or magnesium.

Otherwise, the experience can be quite relaxing. The drip itself takes approximately 30 minutes. 

What can you expect after an IV infusion treatment?

Most people notice an increase in energy levels and an overall health enhancing boost after an IV vitamin infusion. Optimum vitamin and mineral levels support proper metabolism, cortisol levels, cellular health, mood, and good sleep patterns. Vitamin therapy can also be an immune system boost which is very helpful during the winter months and during allergy season.

Depending on your nutritional needs you may see dramatic effects after the first IV. People who get regular IVs will feel less dramatic effects as their body starts to obtain optimal hydration and nutritional balance. 

How often will I need hydration or vitamin infusion treatments?

Some get IV weekly, multiple times a week, several times a month, or as needed.

Why get IV Hydration instead of supplements?

Speed. It can be helpful to bypass the digestive track and go directly to the bloodstream for high absorption at a cellular level, especially for those dealing with digestive issues such as constipation, Crohn’s, Celiac, IBS.
