IV therapy is the hottest new health and wellness treatment
The wellness industry is projected to be valued at $7 trillion by 2025, and it has really grown exponentially in the past decade. There are a lot of contributing factors to that growth, but the expanded availability of wellness treatments and the newfound motivation for individuals to take control of their health and wellness are the biggest.
One of the fastest growing and most popular new parts of a holistic health and wellness regimen is IV therapy, and IV therapy isn’t just for celebrities or multi-millionaires anymore! IV therapy is a huge part of 10X Health’s five-part wellness plan, but safety is the #1 factor that our patients ask and care about the most, and for good reason!
So, is IV therapy safe? Absolutely, and let’s dig into why.
What is IV therapy?
IV therapy is the fastest way for your body to get the vital missing nutrients and minerals it needs to perform optimally, and the actual treatment involves the administration of fluids and nutrients intravenously.
When you schedule an appointment, the 10X Health team will learn more about your unique needs and help to uncover any vitamin deficiencies you may have. From there, we will mix up a custom “cocktail” complete with fluids and nutrients that target your unique needs while replenishing your body at the same time.
Now, this is the part where we get a lot of questions about the safety of the treatment. Once your 10X cocktail is mixed and ready to give your body exactly what it needs, one of our 10X Health specialists will bring it right to your home and place the IV to administer the therapy wherever you’re most comfortable. Spoiler alert: this process does involve a needle, which is why safety is a big consideration for folks when considering adding IV therapy to their wellness regimen.
Is IV therapy really safe?
As with any health or medical treatment, there are risks and benefits for IV therapy, but, thanks to today’s technology and 10X Health’s years of experience in this space, doing an IV therapy treatment with 10X is perfectly safe for most healthy individuals, and we work closely with our clients to help them weigh the risks and benefits for their unique case.
One of the biggest ways 10X can help to control the safety of an IV therapy treatment is by only working with providers who are experts at placing IVs and administering IV drips. All medical treatments come with possible risks, but through precision dosing and the expert care of our medical team, clients can feel at ease knowing that they are receiving only the best care from the most skilled and experienced providers.
While IV therapy is more accessible than ever, and there are tons of measures in place for the safety of our patients, it’s always a good idea to check with your healthcare provider before scheduling an appointment for an IV drip. Your doctor will know if you have any conditions that may make IV therapy at higher risk (or even unsafe) for you, and they can help you weigh those pros and cons.
If you’re considering IV therapy outside a hospital, there are a few ways you can ensure your safety during treatment, but as a first step, make sure you’re asking these questions of your provider:
- Does the individual administering the IV have experience with this procedure?
- Can you show me the credentials that certify you to perform IV therapy?
- What’s in the IV cocktail, and is the fluid mixture custom to my unique needs?
Why IV therapy?
Now that we know IV therapy is safe and have talked about the risks, let’s talk about the benefits. IV therapy has a host of benefits and is a much more efficient way to give your body the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients it needs to perform at an optimal level.
One of the reasons why folks choose to do IV therapy is to supplement their vitamin needs because IV cocktails can be customized to give your body exactly what it needs, like Vitamin C, for example.
Another reason to choose IV therapy as part of your health and wellness regimen is to assist with hydration and restoration of the body. 10X Health can even add NAD to your IV drip, which is a vital coenzyme in your cells that naturally depletes over time leading to the effects of aging.
Regardless of what you’re wanting to gain from IV therapy, it is very easy to customize the treatment to meet exactly your needs and desired outcomes.
