Once limited to hospitals, IV therapy is now available to everyone. IV drips have many benefits, from rehydration after strenuous exercise to relieving chronic migraine pain.
IV therapy may be for you if you’re considering options for boosting your health and well-being. It’s quick, efficient, and growing in popularity.
The Primary Medical Physicians, LLC team in Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, and Davie, Florida, evaluate your condition and recommend specific IV cocktails.
What is IV therapy?
You can imagine the bag full of liquid hanging on a hook. Attached is a tube (a catheter) that funnels the nutritious liquid into a vein in your arm. IVs work quickly because they act as an expressway for a vitamin and nutrient surge into your bloodstream.
As for what’s in that liquid, it depends on your purpose for obtaining an IV. IVs can contain high levels of Vitamin C to boost your immune system or plenty of electrolytes to remedy a hangover.
No matter your reason for seeking IV therapy, it’ll rehydrate you so your body can perform at its best.
Anyone can benefit from IV therapy. Some say it reduces anxiety, provides pain management for migraines and fibromyalgia, enhances mental clarity, and improves the energy levels of those with chronic fatigue.
For example, if you suffer from migraine disease, you know the throbbing pain a migraine attack can bring. IV therapy hydrates you via electrolytes, magnesium, and other nutrients to ensure you’re well-hydrated. IV for migraines may also include pain medication to help you recover quickly.
One popular IV formula is the Myers’ Cocktail. Named after a Baltimore doctor who developed it in the 1970s, this mixture contains high doses of Vitamins B, C, magnesium, and calcium combined with sterile water.
