5 Benefits of IV Therapy

Feb 01, 2022

IV therapy isn’t a new concept. 

If you’ve ever had a bad stomach flu and been severely dehydrated, you may have received an IV drip full of electrolytes (sugars and salts) at the hospital. Within an hour or two, you probably felt better and went home. 

IV drips at local clinics are all the rage now for this very reason. They help you feel better and improve your overall health. You can even get different combinations of nutrients to help you look and feel your best. 

At The Wellpath at our offices in Midtown Manhattan and West Park, New York, Dr. Heskett offers a variety of IV therapies to treat everything from memory loss to a bad hangover

Why IV therapy works so well

This treatment is effective because the nutrients, vitamins, and medications are delivered directly into your vein through an IV, bypassing your digestive system. 

This means that you feel the effects faster instead of eating and waiting for your body to digest the food and absorb the nutrients. And sometimes, your body doesn’t even absorb the nutrients you need, which makes you feel tired, lethargic, and just blah.

How can IV therapy benefit you?

Here are just five ways, of many, that IV therapy can help you look and feel your best.

1. Control diabetes

Are you having trouble controlling diabetes through healthy eating and exercise? 

Pulsation insulin infusion therapy may help control your blood sugar, lower your risk of developing severe health conditions, and improve your quality of life. This innovative treatment delivers insulin in pulses, similar to how your pancreas naturally works. 

2. Look and feel younger

There is a real fountain of youth, and it’s called anti-aging infusion therapy. 

This IV therapy helps you get a step closer to recapturing your healthy, glowing skin of years past. It can also help you feel younger by improving your mood, combating fatigue, and giving you more energy. 

IV therapy can help:

  • Slow down the aging process
  • Prevent free radicals from damaging every cell in your body
  • Brighten your skin and make it glow
  • Strengthen your hair and nails
  • Improve your memory

3. Improve physical performance

Whether you’re an athlete, a team player at work, or a weekend warrior, your body can get damaged if you push it too hard. 

For example, when you lift weights, your muscles develop tiny tears. As these tears repair, you gain strength and muscle mass. But if you overtrain or overextend yourself physically at work, your muscle mass will be reduced. This is why rest is so important, especially for athletes of all levels and abilities. 

Working out hard and for prolonged periods also releases free radicals that damage your cells. Performance infusion therapy contains amino acids to help repair muscles and vitamins to combat damage from free radicals. It can also help you recover faster by hydrating your body and reducing recovery time between hard workouts, games, or competitions.

4. Relieve a hangover

Did you drink a little too much when you went out with your friends? You don’t need us to tell you that you’ll feel awful the next day, but we can help with the hangover. 

Alcohol dehydrates you and constricts blood vessels, which causes a headache and overworks your liver. You may feel tired and nauseated on top of everything else. 

IV therapy can help relieve a hangover by replacing electrolytes (sugars and salts), giving you a vitamin boost, and controlling your nausea.   

5. Improve memory

We all have trouble remembering things once in a while, but if it happens more often than you’d like, try IV therapy to improve your memory. By getting the nutrients you need, your brain can function at its best.
