What are the Benefits of IV Therapy?
IV Therapy is a natural way to fight the effects of aging, detox the body, and treat many conditions, using your body’s own chemistry and its ability to use vitamins, nutrients, and minerals to heal itself. IV Therapy works by directly infusing these nutrients into your bloodstream intravenously, bypassing the digestive system so that they can go to work in your body immediately. This makes IV Therapy at OC Medical Tustin superior to a combination of diet and oral supplements alone, if you consider how the digestive system can negatively impact nutrient absorption. Some treatment options like High Dose Vitamin C would be impossible to receive by other means.
Through IV Therapy, Arturo Portales, DO, FAARFM, at OC Medical Tustin provides precise and individualized doses of the nutrients your body needs to feel healthy and happy. Powerful, high-quality nutrients are used in customized formulas based on the latest research to safely and effectively address patients’ specific health concerns and nutritional deficiencies. After an IV Therapy treatment, patients in Orange County report feeling calm, focused, energized and hydrated, and they can enjoy the following health benefits:
Harmful toxins are present all around us. There may be no escaping the smog in the air or mercury in your tuna, but there are ways to rid yourself of these toxins. Different forms of IV Therapy, including glutathione IV Therapy and chelation therapy, feature nutrients that bind to the toxins in your body and safely evacuate them. IV Therapy is also effective for treating more severe situations, like heavy metal poisoning or dealing with the aftermath of chemotherapy.
IMPROVED IMMUNITY & WELLBEING
Proper nutrition and hydration are the fuel that your immune system needs to properly battle illness and infection, and nothing delivers vital nutrients directly to your bloodstream like IV Therapy. For a healthy and active immune system, your body needs fuel in the form of Vitamin C, B Vitamins, alpha-lipoic acid, and more. Many patients in Orange County pursue IV Therapy at OC Medical Tustin to boost their immune systems during cold and flu season, as well as before and after air travel.
As we age, it’s only natural that we experience a decline in our natural defenses against toxins and cellular damage, which lead to breakdowns in joint health, brain function, energy levels, and libido. IV Therapies that detoxify the body and restore essential nutrients such as glutathione, alpha-lipoic acid and Vitamin C, can help you fight these effects of aging, leaving you feeling refreshed and energized.
As our bodies age, the digestive tract loses some of its capacity to absorb nutrients, and illness and injury can make this even worse. Bypassing your digestive tract with IV Therapy allows you to effectively supplement your diet and infuse the nutrients your body craves directly into your bloodstream.
How many glasses of water have you had today? Your body craves hydration, and that’s especially important when you are sick, recovering from a workout or trying to preserve the appearance and elasticity of your skin.
Along with nutrients you receive intravenously, IV Therapy provides ample fluids that will restore your internal systems and keep your body healthy.
BOOST ENERGY LEVELS
IV Therapy is great not only for boosting your physical energy, but also your mental energy. Instead of caffeinating yourself to get through the day, why not schedule an IV Infusion at OC Medical in Orange County, and get a natural boost to help you make it through your busy lifestyle?
When you are ill, your body doesn’t do a very good job of absorbing and using nutrients properly. Stomach illnesses can make absorption particularly difficult, and recovery following medical procedures can often be more frustrating than the procedures themselves. IV Therapy solutions containing Vitamin C, alpha-lipoic acid, amino acids and Vitamin B12 get the nutrients your body needs directly into your bloodstream, so that your body is better able to recover, fight off illness, and get back to feeling well again.
IV Therapy can be a great addition to your stress-management and self-care routine. For some people, the simple act of sitting and relaxing for about an hour at OC Medical Tustin can be meditative. Beyond this calming experience, IV Therapy gives your body the amino acids, vitamins. minerals and nutrients it needs, to cope with stress naturally.
