As we age, it’s normal to notice symptoms like: reduced energy, general and chronic fatigue, a greater need for recovery time after physical activity, and other issues. Additionally, the aging process makes it harder to throw off cold and flu symptoms and it can take longer to get over it. That’s the bad news. The good news is, there’s a host of effective treatment methods, and one of them is through IV therapy.

With IV therapy, a “cocktail” is created using materials like glycine (an amino acid), B-12, and ascorbic acid (vitamin C). These nutrients are then injected into your veins, or given intravenously. Depending on the need, cocktails can help to reduce anxiety, allow for a better nights sleep, boost the immune system, provide anti-aging benefits, work as a hangover remedy, and simply tune-up your overall health.

One of the most common cocktails used for IV therapy is the Myers “wellness” cocktail. This contains magnesium, calcium, and various B and C vitamins. It has a wide variety of uses, including treatment for asthma attacks, chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia, seasonal allergies, migraines, menstrual cramps, and recovery from athletics.

IV nutrient therapy is usually extremely safe. The only real side-effects are allergic reactions to IV nutrients, a burning sensation at the IV site, and a risk of infection or phlebitis. All of these are extremely rare, yet it’s important for us to take precautions regardless. Is this treatment method right for you?
