IV (intravenous) Infusion Therapy is the latest emerging lifestyle trend, offering a quick fix therapy to boost both mind and body. Until recently, it was only available to celebs like Madonna, Rihanna and the Kardashians, but now Durbanites, can get their fix too. The experts at Exuberance Health & Wellness, Umhlanga, explain how these treatments swiftly deliver nutrients and vitamins directly to your body for a feeling of overall wellness.
IV therapy is the process of nourishing one’s body with vitamins, minerals and other natural substances directly into the bloodstream. The leading benefit of having IV nutrition is that it bypasses the digestive system thereby giving you an instant boost. While you may be freakishly afraid of needles, the one thing you have to remember when embarking on IV therapy is that you’re not sick, but rather getting a much needed vitamin boost to revitalise you. The treatments are administered by a registered nurse, and will take less than an hour, with benefits lasting between two weeks to a month. IV drips ensure 100 per cent absorption for maximum effect and minimum wastage, so a tiny drip can instantly provide therapeutic relief by addressing any lacks that may arise in your body including fatigue and vitamin deficiencies. Some vitamin and nutrient IV therapy cocktails are perfect boosts for immune and skincare, and others for the odd hangover. They are also designed to help improve anxiety, symptoms of depression, mental clarity and cognitive function, and are known to help reduce the symptoms of migraines, improve symptoms of asthma, accelerate wound healing and even help with addiction recovery.
Some of the major benefits
Enhanced Health & Wellness – IV drips can enhance your physical wellness and improve areas of your emotional health, such as anxiety, depression or sleep deprivation, just by giving your body the boost it requires to stay at peak condition. When you feed your body an ideal balance of vitamins and nutrients through infusion treatments, you are bound to look better, feel better, boost your immune system and enjoy clarity of mind and body.
Accentuated Beauty – The various formulations of IV drips include a unique blend of vitamins, nutrients and anti-oxidants that bring out your beauty by revitalizing the health and strength of your skin. Some detoxifying properties will rejuvenate your appearance from the inside out. Unlike topical creams and oral supplements, the IV therapy contains potent anti-oxidants that target and remove free radicals, which contribute to aging, scars, pigmentation and tissue damage. The anti-oxidants work to naturally reduce the appearance of fine lines, repair UV damage, and help your body eliminate harmful toxins.
IVs Support Healthy Weight Loss – Beside the energy and fitness-boosting properties of IV treatments, some infusions are specifically designed with a unique blend of lipotropic compounds, amino acid, B12 shots and other vitamins that help your body to naturally break down fat and help you burn calories faster.
