Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Drips are an alternative to daily oral medication

IV Drips continues to save lives daily. They’re fast, effective, budget-friendly(cost-effective), and available as an option, IV therapy has become the best solution for people suffering with vitamin deficiency and unable to use oral vitamins, dehydration, hangover, and a host of  other benefits to excite.

As a Mom of three, I’ve always struggled to get my kids to swallow their medication, usually due to the very sweet or bitter taste or a general dislike of the swallowing process.

I was a tonsillitis sufferer for many years before I decided to have them removed surgically. As a child, I remember how my mom struggled with managing my symptoms when I couldn’t swallow or keep anything down. I remember how she would helplessly watch me struggle with these symptoms; headaches, nausea, vomiting, body pains high, temperature , dehydration and weakness. Incidentally, my childhood health journey with my Mom seems to be my reality with my 14-year-old daughter, except that I have more options to explore, thanks to alternative therapies like IV infusion drips.

So, What is IV Therapy and how does it work?

Intravenous (IV) infusion drip is a process where fluids composed of essential minerals, electrolytes and sometimes vitamins that maximize natural health, performance, recovery and general wellness are administered through the vein directly and delivered directly to the blood.

The greatest benefit of IV therapy is that the medication is administered directly into the bloodstream so it offers quick relief, as opposed to conventional oral medication where the medicine has to go through the process of breaking down and eventually absorbing the tablet or oral medication into the bloodstream to produce the desired effect. This means you get the full benefits of the drip without burdening your gut, kidneys, liver and other major organs with the processing and eliminating any unwanted by-products.

What Conditions Can IV Therapy Help With?

Different types of vitamin drips can be tailor-mixed to meet individual health needs and schedules. Some of the conditions that benefit from IV drip therapy include, but not limited to:

  • Nausea
  • Cold and flu
  • Dehydration
  • Hangovers
  • Migraine and headache
  • Morning sickness
  • Fatigue
  • Weakened immune system
  • Ageing and certain skin conditions
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Food poisoning, and many more.
