IV therapy bypasses the digestive system and puts necessary vitamins and minerals directly into your blood system to be carried to the cells of your body, where they’re needed most. Even if you are eating the recommended 6-8 servings of veggies and 2-4 servings of fruit a day (a serving size is equivalent to ½ cup of raw veggies, ½ cup cooked veggies, 1 cup green leafy, 1 medium fruit, ½ cup of berries or cut up fruit), our food supply chain contains less and less vitamin and mineral content every year due to current farming practices. (And even if you are eating all organic, we have a ways to go before our soils are replenished with the full array of nutrients). Also, many people have chronic digestive issues so which means they absorb even less from their foods. Due to these facts, IV therapy can support your overall health in several ways.
- Hydration- Especially here in the Arizona desert, we often don’t realize that the dry climate is depleting us significantly. Even if you think you’re drinking enough water daily does that mean it is getting INTO your cells? IV therapy in a base of electrolytes ensures your cells recognize and take up the fluids.
- Supports Immunity- Vitamin C IV has long been used to support overall immunity as well as treating many illnesses such as flu (stomach and upper respiratory), pneumonia, COVID, and shingles – among many others.
- Improves energy levels- Being low in vitamins and minerals such as B-vitamins, trace minerals and amino acids can lead to fatigue. If health conditions such as low thyroid and anemia have been ruled out as the cause of your fatigue, IV vitamin and mineral therapy can help! A B12 shot following the IV can give an additional boost as most of us are depleted of this important water-soluble vitamin!
- It’s Fast- In a session lasting only about 40 minutes, we’ll give your body a shot containing concentrated levels of vitamins, minerals & antioxidants.
- Decreased Toxins- Our antioxidants help to support liver health and speed the removal of toxins from your body. Our serum is the perfect companion for a session of fasting or cleansing.
- Delayed Aging- The nutrients in our serum can delay the onset of dementia and other age-related conditions. Certain items we carry also improve overall mental function.
- Hangover Relief- Did you have a bit too much fun last night on the town? Our IV’s improve headaches, nausea, body aches all while providing hydration and replacement of essential electrolytes, minerals and vitamins.
- Reduces Headaches- Magnesium is an effective and natural way to relive and reduce the frequency of migraines, cluster headaches and tension headaches.
- Reduces Stress- Our IV’s contain Magnesium, Vitamin C, B Vitamins, and Glycine just to name a few which can improve health of the adrenal system and reduce stress levels.
- Faster Recovery Times- If you’ve recently had surgery or experienced an injury, our IV’s can help you recover more quickly by delivering amino acids, antioxidants and nutrients directly into the bloodstream.
