IV Vitamin Therapy isn’t new, but it continues to gain popularity because of its extensive and versatile benefits that appeal to men and women of all ages and backgrounds. If you’ve been considering joining the NOVA Plastic Surgery patients who keep coming back for more IV Vitamin Therapy in Northern Virginia, we can help you take the plunge. Here are the 10 most common reasons you might be ready for IV Vitamin Therapy.
1. You’re tired.
The vast majority of patients seek vitamin infusions because they’re simply exhausted and looking for an energy boost. Perhaps they’re busy parents chasing after kids all day or overextended professionals who aren’t getting the rest and recuperation they need. Sometimes they’re none of these. In fact, many of our patients say, “There’s no reason I should feel this tired, but I do,” and IV Therapy becomes a part of their self-care routine.
2. You have frequent headaches or migraines.
Migraines can make it hard to even get out of bed, much less keep up with your daily routine. One of the most common triggers for migraines is a lack of intake of certain vitamins and minerals, which can be provided through IV Therapy to reduce frequency or severity of headaches. One of our patients said, “I’d choose an hour in this chair over an hour debilitated with a migraine any day of the week, so I’ve made IV Therapy part of my prevention plan.”
3. You’re sick all the time.
Vitamin C and zinc deficiencies can disarm your immune system, making it impossible to fight off infection and allowing normally harmless bacteria and other microorganisms to wreak havoc on your body. By using IV Vitamin Therapy to restore the vitamins and minerals your body needs to fight infection, you may be able to prevent illness, get better faster when you do catch a bug, and prevent the need for antibiotics and hospital stays.
4. You’re at risk for osteoporosis.
Though women are at particularly high risk, both men and women need to think about bone health when they’re young in order to prevent porous bones and fractures when they’re older. Calcium and magnesium are critical for bone health and sometimes hard to get through your daily diet, but IV Vitamin Therapy can help.
5. You want more vibrant skin.
Beautiful skin requires hydration and a rich supply of nutrients. Choosing a healthy diet and drinking plenty of water can help, but even then, what you consume must be absorbed by the digestive tract, which is a slow process that results in some waste. When vitamins and fluids are administered through IV, absorption is rapid and your skin reaps the benefits right away.
6. You have a chronic illness.
Some chronic illnesses, such as Crohn’s disease, can reduce your body’s ability to digest food and absorb the nutrients you need in order to stay healthy. IV Vitamin Therapy becomes a critical component of treatment in these cases, replenishing vital nutrients and hydrating at the same time.
7. You need quicker recovery after workout.
Many of our patients are athletes looking to build and repair muscle after an intense workout. Consider IV Therapy to help you make the most of your workouts—and get back to exercise and play as quickly as possible following an injury.
8. You want to feel better.
Research demonstrates close relationships between mood and what we put in our body, which means that nourishing your body can help improve your mood and alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other conditions. IV Therapy is meant to supplement, not replace, your current treatment. Never discontinue treatment without your physician’s approval.
9. You have a hangover.
Most undesirable hangover symptoms can be attributed to the dehydration caused by alcohol consumption. IV Therapy allows rapid hydration, which can provide rapid recovery.
10. You suffer from chronic pain.
Chronic pain can wreak havoc on your mind and body. Although IV Therapy is not a cure, it can help improve your overall health and wellness, making it easier to stay active and energized despite the pain.
