The art of being comfortable in your own skin
When you have spent hours on a plane, worked outside too long in the heat, or worked out harder than usual, you can feel dehydrated and sluggish. Much like after an illness or overindulgence, you may feel as if you aren’t thinking clearly, and everything seems to take more effort than it should. If this sounds familiar, IV therapy may be just what you need.
What is IV Therapy
Intravenous therapy is not just a trend for the rich and famous. Many health-conscious people are using it periodically as a complement to a healthy lifestyle. It is quick, affordable, and proponents of the therapy report immediate results. At Bodyology, we customize the treatment to your specific needs, whether it is to boost your energy, shore up your immune system, or supplement your health regimen.
How It Works
When you take a vitamin orally, it must travel through your digestive tract, where the body absorbs approximately 50% of the vitamin. With IV vitamin therapy, the solution carries the vitamins directly to your bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system, where up to 90% of the vitamin is retained. Not only will a vitamin solution be more readily absorbed, but a higher concentration of vitamins and minerals can also be administered as compared to pills or diet alone.
Why Rehydration Therapy
Different formulations may be indicated based on your individual needs. Vitamin therapy has been effectively used when combined with minerals like magnesium for stress and difficulty sleeping. B12 can help with jet lag, exhaustion, and may provide a defense against illness. The Myers’ Cocktail, a solution of calcium, B vitamins (including B12), magnesium, and vitamin C, has provided relief of symptoms for those suffering from conditions like chronic fatigue syndrome, asthma, fibromyalgia, respiratory infections, and muscle pain. Other formulations have helped with skin clarity from acne.
Professional sports have used IV therapy to combat dehydration and provide increased energy when the games go into overtime, like in the NHL. Runners have also been treated with IV rehydration therapy after running marathons. The minerals and electrolytes that are lost during intense physical exertion and sweating not only deplete the athlete’s energy but could also cause serious health consequences if not treated.
