Feeling Run-Down? IV Vitamin Therapy Can Give You a Boost

Do you frequently feel run down in the middle of the day? Unsure of whether your body is getting the right amount of nutrients? You may be a good candidate for IV therapy, offered by the caring staff at Weight Loss and Vitality in Washington, D.C. and Alexandria, Virginia. A brief therapy session can restore your vitamin and nutrient levels while relieving symptoms of fatigue and dehydration.

What IV therapy is

A safe and increasingly popular procedure, IV therapy provides vitamins and a boost of hydration into your bloodstream in as little as 45 to 60 minutes. Conditions that IV therapy treats include weakened immune systems and the signs of aging, revitalizing your body’s natural defense and giving you a fresher look. It has also been known to help rehydrate after a hangover by replacing electrolytes.

Overall, the effects of IV therapy enhance your health and energy levels.

What to expect during IV therapy

Clients who experience IV therapy at Weight Loss and Vitality find the procedure relaxing and revitalizing. Before you begin, your provider will conduct an assessment to rule out any vitamin deficiencies or hormonal imbalances that may counter the effects of the treatment, or otherwise make it unsafe. A customized IV drip will be made for you with the nutrients you need most, based on your unique needs.

Once the IV is inserted, you’ll get to relax in a comfortable chair and read, watch TV, use your phone, or even nap! Depending on your needs for the treatment, your provider may recommend coming in for IV therapy every two or three weeks.

Benefits of IV therapy

Even if you consume the recommended amount of vitamins through your diet, some people’s bodies have more difficulty processing them than others. Sometimes this is due to inflammation, or other dietary issues. Through IV therapy, you will receive the vitamins and nutrients that your body is lacking, resulting in boosted energy and the health benefits of proper vitamin absorption. You may also notice that it’s easier to lose weight when you have more energy and necessary vitamins.
