Should You Choose IV Therapy or Oral Supplements?
In an ideal world, the human body could obtain all of the vitamins and nutrients it needs for optimal health and performance through the food we eat. But let’s face it – in our fast paced and demanding modern world, the average person is lucky to get a fraction of the nutrients they need through diet alone. Between work and family obligations, and what time is left over for recreational pursuits and exercise (if any!) making the extra time and effort to cook and eat all of the servings of broccoli and lean meats that the food pyramid recommends is virtually impossible!
People with existing health issues or about to undergo surgery are especially vulnerable and need to ensureoptimal immune function for adequate healing and recovery. At surgery recovery room in Los Angeles Pearl Recovery Retreat, patients can undergo IV Therapy after surgery for a super-charged immune boost.
Vitamins and oral supplements have traditionally been an easy and convenient way to get the daily recommended dose of vitamin C and Magnesium, but even taking a multi-vitamin can only provide a limited dose of the nutrients the body needs.
How IV Therapy Can Help Patients Recover After Surgery
IV Therapy is a procedure where essential vitamins and nutrients are injected directly into the patient’s bloodstream intravenously, ensuring maximum absorption and impact. Dosages and combinations vary according to each patient’s unique and individual needs, but typical treatments consist of a combination of:
- amino acids (of particular importance to patients recovering from surgery)
IV therapy is an excellent resource for anyone looking to complement and maintain an already healthy lifestyle and nutrition plan, or to recover from everything from a common cold and flu to a surgical procedure.
The elevated dosage and absorption rates available through IV therapy make it an ideal solution for post surgery healing and wound care. Collagen, which is naturally produced by the body, works to provide structural integrity to the skin and vitamin C helps to stimulate collagen production.
With a dose of IV therapy, patients can receive vitamin C and zinc to supercharge collagen production and increase healing time and results in a way that an oral multi-vitamin simply cannot. IV therapy doses can also help fight and prevent inflammation, which is critical to healthy healing after a surgical procedure.
Types of IV Therapy
