How to feel your very best with IV wellness!

It’s a new year! And like most people, you might be thinking about ways to boost your health and energy levels so that you hit the ground running. Deciding to boost your health in 2023 is a little like making a resolution for your resolutions. Because when you feel your best, you can accomplish so much more (even if that accomplishment is taking life slowly and appreciating the small moments).

 

One overlooked health strategy is IV wellness. With IVs, you can pump your body full of essential vitamins and nutrients in an hour or less. Have a long lunch break? Use it for IV therapy. Feel a cold coming on? Let’s nip it in the bud with IV therapy.

 

Here are common benefits related to IV wellness:

  • Feeling more energetic
  • Getting over colds more quickly
  • Preventing some chronic diseases

 

How IV Wellness Becomes Your Shortcut to Health

Okay, so there are no “shortcuts” to health. The body is healthiest when approached with a holistic approach. That means you can’t cut corners or leave out an organ just to reach your goal faster. But there are more efficient ways to get healthy, and that’s exactly what IV wellness can do for you.

 

When you eat an orange, your body only absorbs 18% of the available vitamin C. Did you know that? Are you feeling a little betrayed by your daily piece of fruit? Well, there’s no point in blaming the orange for our inefficient digestion.

 

The only thing we can do is to find a better system. And that better system is found in IV wellness. Let’s take a deeper look at what you can accomplish when you try it out.

 

Absorb 100% of the Vitamins

When you digest food, your digestive system breaks down nutrients and passes them into the bloodstream. But what if we skipped those steps and injected nutrients directly into the bloodstream? That’s what happens with IV therapy – you absorb vitamins quickly (and you don’t have to eat six oranges either).

 

Match Your IV Contents to Your Needs

Five Journeys offers a wide variety of IV wellness cocktails so that you can match ingredients to your needs. Our team is also happy to recommend a specific cocktail to you based on symptoms and outcomes. For example, you might take an Anxiety Helper if work is overwhelming, or you might take an Immune Booster if you feel like you just can’t get over a cold. 

 

Treat Medical Conditions with IV Therapy

IV therapy isn’t just part of a personal spa day (though it can be). At Five Journeys, we use IVs for a number of medical treatments. For example, infusions can be used to help someone detox from heavy metals. Infusions can also reduce inflammation resulting from chronic conditions. You will need to consult one of our doctors before using IV therapy for medical purposes, but overall, these infusions can be incredibly effective.

 

Start Feeling Better ASAP

Many people love IV wellness treatments because they work fast. We’re too used to medicines taking a few days to kick in. Allergy medicine, for example, sometimes takes a week or more to start working. But not IV therapy.

 

Some clients report feeling better just 30 minutes after their IV. And IVs don’t just mask symptoms like a pain reliever or decongestant. IVs actually boost your body’s ability to fight back and operate at peak efficiency. 

 

Don’t believe us? We invite you to try IV therapy today!

 

Let’s Focus on Total Body Wellness

IV wellness is just one part of total body wellness. Like we said, there are no shortcuts to achieving peak health. You can’t simply come in for an IV treatment every month and expect full healing for your body. You need to look at every aspect of your health and come up with a consistent, holistic treatment plan. 

 

After a while, maintaining optimal health becomes second-nature. But sometimes it helps to have a partner on the journey.

 

We invite you to explore all of our services at Five Journeys. With an emphasis on functional medicine, we offer everything from nutrition coaching to allergy treatments. You’ll be able to meet with health practitioners who actually spend time listening to you, and they’ll come up with personalized treatment plans that accelerate your path to wellness.  

 

And yes, IV therapy is one of our most popular services.
