How does IV therapy work?
IV therapy is a procedure that uses an intravenous drip to infuse essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the body. The advantage of this is that higher levels of nutrients can often be introduced into the body than would be possible orally.
What conditions can IV therapy treat?
IV therapy can be effective in treating and supplementing treatment for a number of conditions. Some of the most commonly treated conditions include fatigue, cold, flu, intestinal malabsorption, wound healing, and much more. IV therapy can also be used for a number of other purposes such as enhancing athletic performance and supplementing cancer treatments such as chemotherapy.
