IV Therapy Can Treat That?

IV Therapy Can Treat That?

Your body gets the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals it needs primarily from the food and liquids you consume. As soon as you finish chewing, your body gets to work breaking down your food and absorbing the nutrients it needs to function properly.

 

According to the Mayo Clinic, the entire process of digestion—from consumption to excretion—takes 2-5 days depending on the person. That’s a pretty long time!

 

The common American diet contains a large amount of processed food which tends to be lower in the vitamins and minerals our bodies need. If someone consumes a lot of processed food, their bodies probably are lacking the nutrients normally found in whole foods.

 

Also, our bodies sometimes need key nutrients quicker than it takes to absorb them from our diets. Enter: IV therapy.

 

IV therapy delivers nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and hydration to the body in a quick, easy, and comfortable way. You can boost your immunity, slow down aging, and give the body the minerals it needs—all in a convenient IV therapy session.

 

IV therapy can be used in many ways, and some of them might surprise you.

 

1. Immune System

Our immune system—linked with your gut microbiome—often gets overwhelmed and worn out trying to process toxins, absorb processed food, reduce inflammation, and fight off pathogens all at once. 

 

Now that school is back in season, most of us are going to be exposed to a higher level of germs and potential illnesses.

 

With an IV therapy injection, you can optimize your body’s immune system to fight off the crud circling around your community.

 

2. Hangover

After a weekend spent partying, you may find yourself waking up the next morning dehydrated, dizzy, and with a splitting headache. How on earth are you going to make it through the day ahead of you?

 

Alcohol depletes the body of nutrients and hydration, which IV therapy can restore quick as a wink—and much faster than it takes to get those nutrients back from food and water. 

 

With a hangover IV, you won’t have to nurse a hangover all day. And just a bit of friendly advice: Remember to drink more responsibly next time!

 

3. Low Energy

When it comes to nutrition, most people fixate on and demonize calories. But here’s the thing: calories are energy, and your body needs energy! That’s how your body gets the nutrients it needs to function properly.

 

Most of us suffer from low energy levels for multiple reasons. Sometimes our bodies aren’t easily absorbing the nutrients from the food we eat. This is where IV therapy can help.

 

Our Energy Booster is designed to maintain your current level of health and boost your energy by helping your body better absorb the nutrients you take in.

 

4. PMS

This one’s for all the ladies out there: If you’re struggling with PMS symptoms that are wrecking your day-to-day life, IV therapy is here to help.

 

Our IV treatment is designed to relieve PMS symptoms by nourishing your body with nutrients and bringing your body back in balance. You can also expect to feel relief and be in better spirits after a PMS Support IV session.

 

5. Medical Conditions

If you have a specific medical need or condition, we have specialized medical IVs to provide relief, hydrate your body, and get your systems back in balance.

 

Each person is unique, and so are our medically supervised IVs.

 

6. Anxiety

The nutrients found in our IV treatments—such as Vitamin C, Magnesium Chloride, and B Complex—benefit your physical body as well as your mental health. In fact, many mental health conditions such as anxiety are rooted in physical health problems.

 

For example, when your body is deficient in key nutrients, your hormones get off-kilter—including the hormones that regulate your mood and thought patterns.

 

With IV therapy, we can get the body back in balance and provide relief for your mental health, which is just as important as your physical health. 

 

A Functional Approach to IV Therapy

At Five Journeys, our approach to IV therapy is just like our approach to everything else: We seek to uncover the root cause of your health issues and treat your entire body system. Instead of isolating your system with band-aid treatments, we want to uncover what’s beneath the surface. Your body is a system of interconnected parts, like a machine with gears that interlock.

 

We take the time to get to know you, your health history, and your current health goals and situation. Then we come up with a treatment plan exclusively for you, addressing your physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual health. This may include incorporating treatments like IV therapy to help you find relief and healing inside and out. 

 

If you still have questions about our IV therapy, check out our FAQ page. We answer questions about IV therapy safety, process, appointments, pain levels, and more.
