Many individuals go to the doctor complaining about similar symptoms. They can’t shake the fatigue that makes them feel sluggish all day, they feel like they get sick every time the temperature changes and they just don’t feel as young as they used to.
If this describes you, it may be because you’re not getting enough of the right vitamins and minerals to keep you active and healthy.
Intravenous nutrient therapy can help you break out of your rut, have more energy and stave off illness.
Why deliver nutrients intravenously?
Many individuals in the United States have a vitamin B12 deficiency. Research shows that up to 40 percent of people in the United States have levels of vitamin B12 that fall below the normal range. Although this vitamin is crucial for metabolism and energy, the people who are deficient are often those who need the vitamin the most.
In order to get vitamin B12 from food, your stomach acid must act on the food, releasing the vitamin so your body can use it. Certain medications or conditions that affect the digestive system can affect your absorption of this vitamin. Vitamin B12 shots deliver the vitamin in a form your body can use immediately, regardless of underlying digestive issues.
You may pop a multivitamin every day or take a plethora of oral supplements each day, each one carefully selected to prevent or manage a specific aspect of your health. However, this may not be enough. Administering IV vitamins can put more of what you need into your bloodstream than simply swallowing a supplement. For example, IV administration of vitamin C delivers 50 to 100 times as much of the nutrient into your bloodstream than taking a pill.
Higher doses of certain vitamins can affect your body differently than lower doses. High doses of IV vitamin C can deliver results similar to those of over-the-counter antiviral medications or antihistamines without the side effects that come with taking it orally.
Nutrient deficiencies often occur at the cellular level, and IV vitamin therapy can help essential vitamins and minerals enter the cells and remain there to perform more effective healing.
What can IV nutrient therapy help with?
If you’re feeling run down, stressed or on the verge of coming down with a virus, IV vitamin and nutrient therapy can provide the vitamins and minerals your body needs to regenerate cells, increase your energy, boost your metabolism and help you fight disease.
When you’re feeling particularly overwhelmed with life, your blood pressure may increase, you may have trouble sleeping and your stress hormones may be on overdrive, putting you at risk for illness. The B vitamins, magnesium and other nutrients in IV nutrient therapy can instantly lower your anxiety and blood pressure, leaving you with a sense of calm.
If a boost of vitality is what you need, high doses of vitamin C can invigorate your cells, revitalizing you and helping to ward off sickness. The right combination of B vitamins and other minerals included in IV nutrient therapy can help you turn fuel into energy, improving your mood, boosting your motivation and helping with attention and memory problems so you can perform your best.
Immunity and disease prevention
Glutathione and lipoic acid can help the liver to filter out toxins from the body. These antioxidants, as well as amino acids, vitamin C, B vitamins and magnesium can load up the body with everything it needs to recover from illness, detoxify itself from contaminants and boost the immune system.
The right combination of nutrients can help reduce inflammation, which can help athletes recover from training. This can also be a boon to individuals with muscle aches and fatigue that result from other health conditions.
The nutrients in IV cocktails, especially vitamin B12, can work as a hangover cure. Vitamin B12 helps the body metabolize alcohol and floods you with energy. Electrolytes help equalize the salt and potassium imbalance caused by dehydration. Other minerals help depleted cells get exactly what they need so you can function optimally after a night of overindulgence instead of feeling fuzzy, nauseated and dizzy.
This specialized formula adds L-carnitine to help your body burn fat for energy, along with MIC to further eliminate fat and toxins from the body, and chromium for fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis.
Get your daily dose of youth with this special blend of anti-aging and antioxidant nutrients that enhance how you look, feel and heal. A high concentration of vitamin C protects from free radicals and promotes healthy skin and nails, while vitamin B12 fights fatigue, and trace minerals and magnesium provide an inner peace and outer glow.
Refresh your beauty and your body with this mini-yet-mighty dosage of anti-aging nutrients that turn back the clock and turn up your energy.
The Meyers Cocktail
One of the most commonly used blends of IV vitamins and minerals is the Meyers cocktail. This mixture of magnesium, B vitamins, calcium and vitamin C was initially given to patients by John Myers, a physician who noticed the many benefits of administering these crucial nutrients intravenously. The cocktail is beneficial in treating a variety of illnesses, symptoms and discomforts, such as fibromyalgia, respiratory infections, sinus infections, seasonal allergies, menstrual cramps, asthma, and fatigue.
You don’t have to be sick to benefit from IV nutrition. The therapy can simply enhance your overall wellness and help you feel your best, especially if you know you’ve slacked on healthy eating, getting rest and exercising. If you’re getting IV nutrients for chronic illness, you may see such drastic improvements over time that you can dial down on the frequency of your visits.
In some cases, it’s necessary to return on a regular basis to maintain results. Outcomes vary depending on the reason for the therapy, the symptoms and the dosage, but many people choose to undergo therapy regularly because it dramatically improves their quality of life.
Why wait for wellness when the direct path to better health is having the nutrients you need delivered directly into your system?
If you’re always tired, have a chronic illness, feel like you’re coming down with a cold or just want to feel like you’re on top of the world, call us to find out more about our intravenous nutrient therapy. We can discuss the benefits of a Myers’ cocktail or a customized blend of nutrients to help you get back your energy and feel like your best again.

Your skin is like a mirror which reflects your overall health that includes physical, emotional and mental health. Similar to the other organs in our body, the skin also undergoes wear and tear over the years owing to the adverse conditions that our skin is exposed to every day. If we look at our previous generations, the aging process was very slow. Even today if you take a look at your grandmother’s hands, they might look younger than yours. This state can be blamed on the unhealthy lifestyle that we follow today; junk food, lack of sleep and exercise, irregular working hours, stress and negligence towards skincare.
Beat the Aging Clock at a Medical Spa
Of course, we feel more confident and happy when others compliment our glowing skin and say that we look much younger than our age. And it is very much possible to get the glowing look with all the safe treatments and techniques that are available today.
For anti-aging treatments you do not have to go to the regular boring skin clinics. You can get your anti-aging services and treatments with the comfort and rejuvenating experience of a spa at a Medical Spa. These are small clinics operated by doctors and aestheticians and these clinics give you all the pleasures of a spa. They provide services such as skincare treatments, laser hair removal, skin tightening, skin resurfacing, photo facial, facial skin lifting, body contouring, tattoo removals, micro needling and cellulite reduction.
Medical Spas also offer something known as IV Nutrient Therapy. We know that skin stays healthy when it is nourished with all the essential nutrients and vitamins. With the fast paced lifestyle, having a nutritious diet is most of the time overlooked. But with IV Nutrient Therapy you could supplement the vitamin deficiency in your body by introducing the nutrients directly into your blood streams through IV drips. This vitamin and nutrient therapy not only benefits the skin but is also good for the improved functioning of all the other organs in your body. Some med spas menu wellness services such as health and diet advice through dieticians and naturopathic doctors with free consultations.
What to Expect From a Genuine Medi Spa
In the United States there are around 4,500 medi spas today and it could become difficult to find the real deal. But with a little of background check this would be an easy task.
- Good medical spas always exhibit professionalism. They will have qualified doctors, experienced staff, well equipped and clean treatment rooms. The staff and doctor would be cordial enough to school you on the various treatments and procedures and they would take good efforts to make you feel comfortable.
- Staff at a genuine medical spa will not promote miracle results but in fact they will be open with you about the expected results of a treatment including the side effects.
- Professional med spas have doctors who are more involved at the Spa and patients through regular visits and consultations.
Skin Care Tips for a Healthy and Younger You
Before you go into the tips it is important to understand that skin aging is a process of the nature and that there is no way to completely prevent it, but we can definitely delay the aging process so that you can take your time in aging gracefully.
- Exposure to the sun: Too much sun exposure is bad but 15 to 20 minutes in the sun is actually good for you because sun is your source of vitamin D which is an essential nutrient for your body. But if you are going to stay longer than that use sunscreen for cover yourself up.
- Have you noticed how raisins look ugly when compared to fresh grapes? Similarly when your body gets dehydrated, the skin loses its elasticity and suppleness and becomes wrinkled.
- A bad habit that causes skin to lose its elasticity is smoking. Smoking is proven to reduce blood supply to the skin causing premature aging.
- Eat your way to a beautiful you. You are what you eat. Eating fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and cutting down on sugar, meat and processed food results in a fresh younger looking skin.
- No stress no wrinkles: stress leads to the production of cortisol hormones which makes skin thinner and prone to wrinkles.
- Cleanse Tone & Moisturise: This is a ritual that people with any skin type needs to follow to have a healthy skin. When your skin is moist lines are kept at bay.
- Don’t overdo face washing. Your face naturally produces oil to keep the skin moist. So with constant washing these natural oils are stripped off from the skin.
- Sleep tight: Lack of sleep causes stress which makes our body release stress hormones and causes collagen breakdown, so a goodnight’s sleep is essential to keep wrinkles away.
- And always consult a good dermatologist before you decide on going for a chemical skin treatment.
