Debunking 10 Misconceptions About IV Therapy (Part 2)

IV therapy is relatively painless.

It is not dangerous as you might think.

Unless you are looking to remedy your jet lag or hangover, it requires continuity and consistency on the patient’s part to get the optimal effects.

Its dosage differs from one individual to another.

Finally, it is better and quicker than eating food and pills to get the nutrients your body mainly needs.

Now that we straighten out the five misconceptions about IV therapy, let’s continue our list of the ten misconceptions and lay the actual truth about it from the previous blog article.

6. Misconception #6: IV therapy is only helpful if you feel sick.
Fact #6: IV therapy has many benefits that even athletes will take.

There is a preconceived notion that IV therapy helps treat people suffering from chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, migraine, and severe headaches. People who also experience hangovers and jet lags will feel better after the drip. Of course, if you are sick, IV therapy can provide an instant cure, which is entirely wrong. An IV bag has a chock-full of minerals and vitamins, including calcium, magnesium, vitamins B and C, which are beneficial for improving their athletic performance, endurance, energy levels, immune system, and nutritional intake. Sports athletes and workout enthusiasts have taken them to get a significant boost. Even healthy people can add it to their current health regimen.

7. Misconception #7: IV therapy does not relieve cold and flu symptoms.
Fact #7: With IV therapy, cold and flu go away in a shorter duration.

If oral or over-the-counter prescriptions do not work for you or have difficulties ingesting pills, IV therapy can be your option. It provides a faster relief to reduce your symptoms, even the duration of your suffering. An IV bag has electrolytes and medications to sustain your fluid levels to prevent dehydration or recover the nutrients you may have lost from the sickness. In addition, the vitamin C it contains has an impressive and quick way to fight off the symptoms, strengthen and empower the immune system over time. It can also act as a preventive measure against cold and flu.

8. Misconception #8: IV therapy is time-consuming.
Fact #8: A session typically takes 30 minutes.

The duration of the treatment is not as cumbersome as you may think. Generally, it can take 30 to 45 minutes long to infuse the contents of the whole bag. The length of time differs from one person to another, in which factors include your healthcare plan or the contents of your IV bag. Think about it. How much time do you spend eating and working out to get the results you want from your body? In comparison, IV therapy is quicker and more effective in producing results to add to your lifestyle or regimen. Besides, IV therapy requires you to stay seated during the entire procedure and divert your attention to some form of entertainment, whether reading books or watching movies.

9. Misconception #9: IV therapy takes some time to feel the effects.
Fact #9: Depending on several factors, you can feel the impact as quickly as within an hour.

The contents of the IV bag can provide the effects immediately, or it may take time. The result is prompt and experienced immediately for jet lag and hangover. People who undergo the treatment stated that they experience physical effects, such as feeling more alert and energized, after receiving it. Consuming solid foods and pills take 12-48 hours to digest them completely and only reap the nutrients at around 50-60%. As opposed to ingesting, infusing the vitamin goes directly into the body that produces the full effects.

10. Misconception #10: IV therapy is costly.
Fact #10: Preventive measures cost cheaper than treating illness.

Treating ailments is expensive, including various medications, doctor’s fees, and hospital fees. Before an illness goes out of hand, the best course of action is to prevent it by taking good care of your health. IV therapy is an excellent addition to a healthier lifestyle and more fit regimen. You may have an idea that they might be lavish and high-maintenance because celebrities are gushing over it, but this therapy fits most budgets. Consult with an IV therapist or provider for special discounts or offers. They will also be happy to tailor an affordable plan for you to suit your budget.

IV therapy may seem intimidating, but once you get to know it, you will find its splendid benefits more charming than what you may have seen or read. Nothing beats an individual’s quest for being healthy, and this treatment is a considerable boost to your lifestyle. Book an appointment now with a reputable doctor or licensed nurse to have your IV therapy. Remember to let them know about your medical history and medicines to devise a plan for you and include the vitamins and minerals you need.
