What is IV therapy?
The IV Myers Restorative Treatment is a type of preventive medicine that optimizes immunity and helps purge the body of disease. IV therapy is often used to help treat conditions like chronic fatigue, stress, muscle pain, spasms, respiratory ailments, and as a counterpart to cancer treatment.
As a preventive measure, IV therapy is administered to patients intravenously, delivering vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to the body in high levels, which means they impact your system immediately. These powerful cocktails can kill viruses and support the glands while working synergistically with supplements that are taken orally.
All vitamins work as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents. When you need help with tissue recovery and repair, IV therapy optimally increases immunity and offers results like faster healing time and enhanced overall functioning.
Are there different types of IV therapy?
There are two main types of IV therapy: nutritional and chelation. Through a nutritional IV, you will receive vitamin C, glutathione, B12, calcium, magnesium, and more. Chelation IV therapy is intended for detox, adrenals, wellness, and anti-aging.
IV therapy is not one size fits all. The treatment is customized to be as beneficial as possible to individual patients so that achieving concrete and therapeutic results through preventive medical efforts is successful.
Who needs IV therapy?
Almost anyone can benefit from IV therapy, but it’s most effective when paired with functional medicine and preventative care. Dr. Lewerenz and his team will take the time to learn about your specific medical needs and craft an IV cocktail to supercharge your body. We often recommend IV therapy to people seeking to reverse and treat:
- Autoimmune disease
- Thyroid issues
- Frequent respiratory infections
- Fatigue and tiredness
- Some cancers
Patients can achieve higher-than-normal blood levels with intravenous therapy, which provides an immediate therapeutic response and corrects deficiencies. These mega-doses of vitamins and minerals are customized to the needs of every individual patient. In its work as a health booster, IV therapy also works by introducing antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents to the body. These perks ward against the development of disease or illness while also making it possible for bodily tissues to achieve recovery and repair themselves.
Let’s Highlight Glutathione
Glutathione is the most powerful antioxidant in the human body. Balanced levels of glutathione are critical for a person to maintain a high-functioning immune system.
Glutathione is also known for:
- Aiding in liver detox by helping to remove chemicals, drugs, and foreign bodies.
- Contributing to tumor death (apoptosis).
- Preventing and aiding in nerve damage (neuropathy).
- Slowing the progression of Parkinson’s disease.
- Decreasing free radical damage caused by exposure to radiation and toxicity.
- Helping with weight loss.
- Conjugating compounds like xenobiotics and carcinogens to help prevent cancer.
A naturally occurring substance, glutathione levels plummet when a person is sick or full of toxins. Compounding this problem is the fact that glutathione is a poorly absorbed antioxidant – unless administered intravenously.
Say yes to IV therapy and preventive medicine
Ultimately, IV therapy corrects bodily deficiencies, and does so in an efficient manner. Most IVs are administered as drips or slow IV pushes and take 30 minutes to one hour to complete. Depending on your current well-being and health goals, one to 6 treatments may be recommended, 8 to 12 treatments, or more.
