What is IV Therapy?
Several months ago I discovered IV Therapy, thanks to Katherine. I'm always one for giving credit where credit is due, but at the same time I'm looking to a lot of creators' content to learn and experience new things. I like to be cutting edge and try the latest and greatest (I did it with CoolSculpting and EmSculpt) but there's so much out there it can be overwhelming to try it all. I am not a big fan of needles, medical supplies and that smell of vitamins (you know what I'm talking about.)
Which is why I was hesitant to do this for so long, but last December I was feeling really rundown. I was groggy and lethargic, but I wasn't sick. I didn't have a any symptoms of being sick, but I just felt truly exhausted, possibly on the verge of getting sick. I finally decided to take the leap, called Tucson Wellness here in town, and scheduled an IV Nutrient Therapy session.
One of the biggest benefits is the fact that IV therapy is hydrating. It's much more concentrated than drinking ounces and ounces of water, given it's got electrolytes and other nutrients.
Jumpstart the Immune System
When it came to how I was feeling in December, I knew I needed a pick me up so the specific cocktail I did was called 'Feel Good.' This had a great concoction of magnesium, calcium, and B vitamins. If you're ever on the verge of getting sick, or you're feeling rundown a nice cocktail of all of these is going to be super effective.
Since you end up with so many electrolytes and a lot of liquid in your body, you will be peeing a lot that day as well as the next 1-2 days. This gives your body a nice detoxification to help flush out anything that needs to go.
While there's more benefits to IV therapy, the three above are my favorites and the ones I've personally experienced each time. In various cocktails, there are options to help control appetite, increase circulation, help with hormone function and more. Depending on what you're feeling your body needs, the team can build a customized package for you.
A few things to keep in mind:
You will pee a lot more day of and the next day, and it might be a bright yellow. Even though you're hydrated, it'll be yellow because the bag was a deep yellow color.
Once the drip begins, you will taste the medicine in your mouth. It's completely normal and really shows you how connected your body is to the things you consume.
It takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and 15 to receive the entire bag of fluids. It just depends on the flow and how the nurse injected the needle.
