The benefits of 417 INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE are many, and include everything from hydration to reducing the effects of hangovers to boosting energy levels. IV Therapy also helps improve nutrient absorption, because it bypasses the digestive tract. This makes it especially beneficial for people with sensitive stomachs or digestion problems. The IV drip itself usually consists of a saline solution (water and sodium chloride) and may also contain sugar (glucose or dextrose).
IV Therapy can help reduce the severity of nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea from food poisoning. It can also provide a quick fix for a hangover, and alleviate the pain of a migraine headache. IV fluids can also be used to treat certain illnesses and injuries, including pneumonia, pneumonia, shingles, and sepsis. Other IV treatments include magnesium sulfate for acute asthma, high dose vitamin C to combat cancer, and other medications that aren’t easily administered through a nebulizer.
Getting IV Treatment
The treatment process is fairly simple. After a medical professional performs an examination and takes a patient’s blood pressure, they insert a small needle into one of the patient’s veins and then attach a tube to the needle that leads to an IV bag. The IV bag contains saline or a blend of vitamins and minerals customized for the patient’s symptoms. The patient lies back, and the saline solution is delivered to their body through the vein. This process only takes about 30-60 minutes, and the results are immediate.
