Intravenous therapy, or IV Therapy, is the newest way to boost the body’s immune system. Everyone has woken up one morning feeling like they’re about to come down with the flu. They feel groggy, tired, and sore because the body is running low on the vital resources it needs to function in day-to-day life. IV Therapy at EZCare Clinic in San Francisco can help you restore the natural balance in your body by giving it the vitamins it wants and needs.
How is IV Therapy different than taking vitamins orally?
By flushing the vitamins directly into the bloodstream, the doctors at EZCare Clinic bypass the gastrointestinal tract. The gastrointestinal tract is designed to absorb the nutrients from food, but unfortunately, it is not as great with pills. The gastrointestinal tract is not as efficient at absorbing vitamins in their pure form compared to eating food. By taking vitamins orally, a person might be missing up to 50 percent of the ingested vitamin tablet they took. This is where IV Therapy comes in. When a person receives IV Therapy in San Francisco, they can be assured that every drop of the vitamins that are being injected is going directly to the place the body can effectively use it: the bloodstream.
Why flush away the nutrients that your body desperately wants? Schedule an appointment with EZCare Clinic for an IV Therapy treatment today.
While there are many different IV treatments on the market, there is one industry standard that gets used most often. Myers’ Cocktail is the most commonly used solution of IV Therapy. Formulated in the 60s by Dr. John Myers at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, the Myers’ Cocktail was his attempt to help revolutionize the way we see diet and nutrition. Through his research, he realized that the body was only absorbing a fraction of the total vitamins we ingested daily. Worst of all, those with an unhealthy gastrointestinal system, who needed the nutrients the most, absorbed the fewest vitamins when they consumed them orally.
That was when inspiration struck Dr. Myers. By bypassing the gastrointestinal system, he was able to use his “cocktail” of key vitamins and minerals to help restore balance to those who needed it most. In doing so, he discovered several helpful side effects such as alertness and increased energy.
What’s in a Myers’ Cocktail?
While each EZCare Clinic is going to tailor the cocktail to your specific needs, there are a few staple ingredients that you see in most Myers’ Cocktails (resquaredmedical.com, 2017). Magnesium chloride helps prevent inflammation and supports a healthy immune system; it is also known to help treat asthma, migraines, and high blood pressure. Calcium gluconate helps to treat low blood calcium and builds up strong bones. AB complex promotes healthy hair and skin, prevents memory loss, and acts as a stress reliever. Finally, a large dose of vitamin C can help fight cancer and acts as an antioxidant. This is like having a Superteam of vitamins pumped directly into your bloodstream.
Best of all IV Therapy is a simple process that can take under an hour. Most IV Therapy treatments start with a small medical assessment before you are brought into a relaxing room to start the drip. Most patients will feel a “heat” that starts in your chest and moves throughout your body (womenshealthmag.com, 2015). Some patients will have a metallic taste in their mouth that will only last for a short time during the session. Afterward, you should feel rested, revitalized, and fully energized.
IV Therapy can help you battle a whole host of serious issues. Depending on the mixture you select, IV Therapy can aid in the recovery or treatment of Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS), Parkinson’s disease, Chronic depression, Lyme disease, and Cancer. By consulting a doctor at EZ Care Clinic, you can get set up with an IV Therapy that is tailored to your needs. So if you’re struggling with one of these persistent medical issues, schedule an appointment for IV Therapy at EZCare Clinic.
While Intravenous Therapy can help treat many persistent medical issues, it also has become a way for patients to avoid some common ailments, or prepare for stressful situations (portmoodyhealth.com, 2015). Myers’ Cocktail is well known for restoring the body quickly after hangovers. While it may take hours for the patient to shake off a hangover, a Myers’ Cocktail gives the body exactly what it needs to restore it to perfect function in under an hour.
So if you had one epic night partying and are paying the price the next morning, IV Therapy at EZCare Clinic in San Francisco is definitely the way to go.
People who travel also experience tiredness that is often caused by dehydration. When you’re on an airplane, the airplane cabins are dehumidified, which is extracting the moisture from the body. Add on top of that the poor food that patients ingest over their travels, and it’s no wonder that people come off the plane feeling sick and groggy. IV Therapy can help bring you back up to working speed quickly.
Why spend the day getting back up to speed when you can get there in under an hour?
Professional athletes have started using IV Therapy to restore themselves, in legal ways, after difficult workouts. Even a little dehydration can reduce performance, increase fatigue, and cause your body to be more susceptible to heat stress. By prepping your body before or after an event, you can reduce some, if not all, the negative side effect of a workout.
