When people think about getting an IV they often think about being in the hospital and getting an IV only when they are sick and in dire straits. Those types of IV’s are utilized on a daily basis around the world. But, if your focus is on staying out of the hospital, on staying well, and on preventing illness and disease, then you will want to know about wellness IV’s.
A wellness IV is an IV that you get in a doctor’s office with the goal of optimizing your health. Your body is an amazing network of cells that require certain nutrients, water, and oxygen in order to function optimally. When your cells function optimally, you look and feel your best. A wellness IV is one way to ensure that your cells are receiving exactly what they need in order to function optimally.
Often we do not give our cells what they need in the foods that we eat and besides that, we are continuously exposing them to toxins (stress, chemicals, artificial hormones, etc.) which affects their nutrient requirements and ability to function. This can result in fatigue, increased aches and pains, an increased susceptibility to infections (viruses, Lyme disease, Shingles, etc.), a diagnosis of an autoimmune disease (M.S., Hashimotos thyroiditis, Lupus, etc.), a cardiovascular disease (heart attack, elevated blood pressure, peripheral vascular disease, etc.), an overall decrease in vitality, etc. The list goes on……
Our bodies are designed to heal themselves. If your body does not heal correctly, you may get sick often, and/or you have a chronic disease; this indicates that your cells do not have the appropriate nutrients and environment to heal correctly.
I always advise having a healthy whole food diet, getting adequate sleep, having regular exercise, minimizing toxin exposure, taking the right supplements, and getting your hormones balanced. All of these things are important to feeling healthy and vital. Getting a wellness IV is an easy thing to add to your wellness regime to ensure that your body is functioning optimally.
If you are overall feeling well, then you may want to add in a wellness IV on an as needed basis to keep your body in optimal shape. If you have any symptoms or have been diagnosed with an illness or disease then you will want to add in a wellness IV on a more regular basis until you are feeling much better.
People that have autoimmune diseases have seen their symptoms decrease or disappear with the use of wellness IV’s combined with appropriate lifestyle changes. How amazing is it to have that happen without the use of medications??
I have had patients diagnosed with Shingles who came in for a wellness IV two days in a row, subsequently feeling great! I have also had patients with other acute viruses and even the recently highly publicized post viral syndrome (from a virus which I can not name here but that is on the news everywhere…) who come in for a few wellness IV’s and had what seemed like miraculous recoveries. These IV’s have been absolutely amazing and I have seen zero complications from them. Yet if I talk about them publicly in relation to the current infection being talked about, that information is taken down. This is why I wanted to write this article, so that I can share this information and let you make your own choices.
How often you get a wellness IV depends upon what you are getting it for. If it is for prevention then typically people get an IV before travelling, when around ill people, or every few months. If is for therapy, then it depends on what you have. If it is an acute illness such as a viral infection then typically a few IV’s, spaced apart based upon the illness, is adequate. If it is a chronic illness such as an autoimmune disease or cardiovascular disease then typically it is a series of wellness IV’s spaced 1-2 weeks apart.
We are all made up of cells that are responsible for ensuring that our body functions optimally. When the cells do not function properly, the body suffers. At least 50% of the American population is suffering from a chronic disease and an overwhelming majority of Americans suffer from recurrent infections, fatigue, pain, etc. This can rob you of your vitality and ability to function in your life.
Our body has the amazing ability to heal itself and when it is not doing that, something is wrong. Often the body is deficient in nutrients or oxygen utilization. You can support your body by eating a healthy whole food diet, getting adequate rest, exercising regularly, avoiding toxins as much as possible, taking the right supplements, and getting your hormones balanced. In addition, by getting a wellness IV, you can help your cells to regain their optimal function.
