Here in Arizona, we’re lucky in that we don’t face the same blizzards and other hazards of winter that many do, but the season still presents some challenges when it comes to your health. Dehydration, weakened immune systems, fatigue, and more, tend to flare during the shorter, colder days of winter, all of which can be remedied by IV drip therapy.
At Aesthetic Assets, Pam Andow, Stacey Molina, Tamara Kaye, Natallie Swain, and the rest of our team of skilled wellness experts believe that people radiate from the inside out. While we offer an extensive range of products and services that can help you look your best on the outside, there’s nothing like great health on the inside to help you truly shine.
To that end, we offer targeted IV drip therapies that can tackle everything from fatigue and hangovers to protection against illness and dehydration.
Here, we take a look at the advantages of IV drip therapy in giving your health and wellness a boost this winter.
Why an IV drip?
Your body needs a certain amount of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to function optimally, but our modern diets often fall short. While you can take supplements to make up the difference, these supplements must be broken down by your gastrointestinal tract before they can reach your bloodstream.
With an IV drip, we deliver the vitamins and nutrients directly into your blood, giving you the full benefits. In fact, this practice has been in use in hospitals for more than a century as an effective way to quickly deliver medications, hydration, and vitamins.
In addition to delivering supplements more effectively, IV infusions can also quickly rehydrate your body by delivering water and electrolytes into your blood.
Types of IV drips
At our practice, we offer three different types of IV infusions, including:
The Myers’ Cocktail
Developed in the 1970s by Dr. John Myers, this IV infusion includes high doses of:
- Vitamin C
- B vitamins
We turn to the Myers’ cocktail as an overall wellness tool that can combat dehydration, fatigue, stress, toxins, and dull skin.
Low-dose vitamin C
With winter comes cold and flu season, as well as all the other pesky viruses in the air. To keep your immune system in great shape so that it can fight back against these viruses, we offer low-dose vitamin C IV drips. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that protects your cells against harmful free radicals.
As an added bonus, vitamin C also supports skin and bone health. In addition to the Vitamin C, other vitamins and minerals are added for enhanced benefit to the body’s immune system.
The holiday season may be full of joy, but the joy can come at a cost in the form of a hangover. If you want to bounce back quickly from a hangover, we offer a specialized IV drip that contains water and electrolytes that quickly rehydrate your body, as well as glutathione, which is an antioxidant that helps your liver to detoxify your body more quickly.
