Weighing the pros and cons of IV therapy
The majority of folks who do IV therapy on a regular basis choose to schedule their treatments in the morning or early afternoon, so many people wonder if IV therapy will make them tired for the rest of the day. After all, battling that afternoon slump is hard enough as it is!
The answer? Quite the contrary! With the right mixture of fluids and nutrients measured specifically for your body’s needs, IV therapy should actually give you a boost of energy to tackle the rest of the day.
What exactly is IV therapy?
Through the intravenous administration of fluids and nutrients, IV therapy is the most efficient way to deliver essential vitamins and minerals into your body.
When you book an IV therapy appointment with 10X Health, our team will take the time to get to know more about your unique goals and needs in order to create a custom cocktail to meet those needs. Whether you’re looking to target vitamin deficiencies, rehydrate after a workout, or improve the look of your skin, your IV drip can be highly custom to you.
From there, our experienced team will place the IV and make sure you’re as comfortable as possible during your 45-60 minute treatment. After an hour, you can jump right back into your day!
What are the risks and benefits of IV therapy?
With any health treatment, there are risks and benefits to IV therapy, but for most healthy individuals, the benefits far outweigh the potential risks. The risks may be different for each person, but the most common side effects include some soreness of the injection site and nausea. Very rarely do folks experience tiredness or fatigue after treatment, making it perfectly okay to book an appointment any time of day.
On the flip side, the potential benefits of IV therapy are vast, and depending on the specific IV cocktail you choose, may include:
- Quicker rehydration
- Boosted immunity
- Slower aging
- Improved skin
- Faster muscle recovery
- Reduced inflammation
- Hangover recovery
- Improved energy levels
How does IV therapy improve energy and fight fatigue?
While some may worry that IV therapy will cause tiredness or fatigue, IV therapy is actually frequently used to boost energy and even treat chronic fatigue syndrome.
It does this in a few different ways. The first is that you can get a very specified dose of vitamins that may help fight against fatigue, like Iron, Vitamin B12, and Vitamin D. Secondarily, IV therapy can help replenish and restore your cells, helping to address aches and pains or physical tiredness you may be feeling.
Lastly, IV therapy can boost NAD in your body, which, as we age, is one of the biggest causes of tiredness and lack of energy. 10X Health offers NAD IV therapy for this exact reason.
While most of our clients end their treatments feeling refreshed and energized, it’s important to remember that not all bodies are the same, so not all bodies will react the same way to treatments like IV therapy. The only way to really know how your body will respond and if tiredness will immediately follow is to give it a try!
