5 Impressive Benefits of Nutritional IV Therapy

Nutritional IV Therapy Dr. David Johnston The Osteopathic Wellness Center

If hooking up to an IV sounds like something you’d only see in a hospital, think again. Nutritional IV therapy offers life-changing benefits to countless people dealing with a wide range of issues, including slow metabolism, dehydration, low energy, chronic pain, and more.

The Osteopathic Wellness Center offers it right here in Ridgefield. With virtually no negative side effects, the upside to nutritional IV therapy offers multiple risk-free benefits. Here are five of them:

1. More effective and efficient

Everybody knows that vitamins and minerals are keys to good health, but it might surprise you to learn that the supplements lining the wall in your local drug store (and likely filling your medicine cabinet) are not nearly as effective as they claim.

Before you gain any benefits from a pill, it must first travel through your stomach and into your small intestine. Much like the burger you had for lunch, this requires digestion, which takes a while. And the small doses available over the counter barely meet your body’s minimum needs.

Often, those pills are packed with hard-to-digest fillers and coatings that make it impossible for your body to break it down in time to do any good. Whatever isn’t absorbed in 20 minutes goes down the toilet (literally).

Now imagine a more direct route, one that delivers the nutrients straight to your bloodstream. Nutritional IV therapy bypasses the middleman and floods your system with 100% of the nutrients.

2. Improved healing

When your body suffers a trauma, or even minor surgery, it needs collagen to restore the structure of your skin and speed up the healing process. Vitamin C, zinc, and vitamin B-complex work together to produce the much-needed collagen, but oral supplements just can’t get the job done.

IV therapy, however, gives you the super doses of vitamins and minerals needed after surgery. It also eliminates the cramps, nausea, and diarrhea often associated with oral supplements.

3. Strengthened immune system

Tired of getting sick during cold and flu season? Tired of fighting a chronic illness that keeps you fatigued and weak? It may be time to join the growing number of health-conscious people demanding an alternative to ineffective remedies. With nutritional IV therapy, you can combat illness, boost immunity, and give yourself the best possible chance of staying healthy.

Dr. David Johnston will set you up with a customized combination of vitamins and minerals to support your immune system. He might suggest a blend of vitamins C and B to increase your metabolic process and energy level. He may add zinc and magnesium or other minerals to boost your immune functions and stabilize your hormones. Together, you can make the right decisions for your personal wellness goals.

4. Enhanced athletic performance

The 2019 Pamby Ridgefield Half Marathon and 7-Miler is just around the corner — are you in tip-top condition? Prep yourself like a professional athlete, and give yourself a healthy (and legal) advantage.

As you know, competitive athletes repeatedly tear down and build up muscle tissue, stress their joints, and deplete essential nutrients. Whether you’re training for the upcoming marathon, gearing up for a company softball game, or pumping iron at the gym, nutritional IV therapy is the most efficient way to boost the recovery process without drugs or other illegal enhancements.

Nutritional IV therapy not only replenishes the vital vitamins and minerals necessary for energy production and cell regeneration, it also vastly increases your hydration, which flushes out toxins and improves organ function. Dr. Johnston develops a customized cocktail that increases your endurance and helps you perform at the highest level possible.

5. Pain relief

Millions of Americans spend between $560 and $635 billion every year treating their persistent pain. Between the costs of physician visits, treatments, prescriptions, and missed work, the expense can be even more debilitating than the pain.

If you suffer from chronic pain but hate the idea of taking drugs that may be habit-forming, you have a choice. Studies show that non-opiate nutritional IV therapy helps many people reduce and/or overcome their tough pain, including the symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.

These are only a few of the many benefits nutritional IV therapy offers. More and more people are turning to this amazing treatment to: boost energy, lose weight, overcome hangovers, fight free radicals, recover from jetlag, increase their metabolism, and more.
