Learn How IV Therapy Can Boost Your Energy

If you have ever spent any time in the hospital, you may have been connected to an IV to get medication, nutrition, or to overcome dehydration. But IV therapy is now being used for many conditions, including migraines, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome. And illness is not the only thing IV therapy treats, it’s now popular as a boost for healthy people as well, such as, athletes who use it for rejuvenation, and others who rely on it for healthier skin and to boost their immunity and energy.

When you come to see Dr. Anwar Gerges and the whole team at our state-of-the-art KeyLife Med Spa in San Antonio, Texas, we offer you an impressive selection of noninvasive and minimally invasive aesthetic services. IV therapy is one of them, and it can help restore your nutritional balance and provide many other benefits.

How IV therapy boosts your energy

What we put into our bodies is energy and fuel, and if we could eat well and get all the nutrients from food that would be that. But our digestive system is tricky, and we don’t always break things down in the best way. Many of the micronutrients we need, like vitamins and minerals, don’t get absorbed when we digest food or vitamin supplements.

With an IV treatment a small tube is inserted into a vein and a liquid filled with vitamins and minerals goes right into the bloodstream. This means those vital and beneficial elements are more quickly absorbed and can give you more energy right away. With an IV, you are getting a higher and more intense concentration, and the absorption percentage increases from about 50% to 90%.

The IV vitamin drip has been around since the 1970s, and the most famous and popular mix known as the “Myers’ Cocktail” is made up of magnesium, vitamin C, calcium, and B vitamins. Magnesium and calcium are good for the bones. Vitamin C is good for many things, including collagen, ligaments, tendons, and blood vessels. And B vitamins can help with skin wounds, migraines, depression, and anxiety. The mix is also great for dealing with symptoms arising from chronic disease and conditions, and of course, for boosting your energy, but Dr. Gerges can create a unique combination specifically for you to address specific concerns and desires.

IV therapy — How long and how often

The drips last about 30 minutes and you can relax and get some sleep, read or do some work. But it’s important that they’re administered by a trained professional, as there can be some complications. And if you’re on certain medications or have congestive heart failure you shouldn’t have IV therapy. For everyone else who can do the therapy, know you’re in good hands with our team who are specialists in the procedure.

The treatment can be done weekly, monthly, or even a few times a year. You and Dr. Gerges will discuss your personal goals and come with up with a game plan, time frame, and schedule. If you’re low on essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, you may be suffering from a lack of energy or even chronic fatigue. Let IV therapy give you your energy back.
