Common Myths About IV Therapy
IV therapy is a fantastic way to promote healing and feel better in general. It is widely utilized by doctors and hospitals all over the nation. However, there seems to be some common misconceptions and myths about the treatment. These misleading facts are something we seek to dispel at Pearl Recovery Retreat. Today, we’ll be going over some of these common myths and debunking them with the facts. IV therapy is a safe and fantastic addition to your post-surgery recovery treatment!
Myth: It’s Unsafe
This is the worst myth out there, so we’ll be busting this one first. The fact is, IV therapy is considered a safe healing treatment by doctors and hospitals around the world. As long as the process is administered by a medical professional, like at Pearl Recovery Retreat, there’s absolutely nothing to worry about. It’s also less invasive than typical IVs. The needle used is very small and you’ll likely experience little to no discomfort.
Myth: It’s No More Effective Than Consuming the Nutrients Through Food
Another common myth is that you can get the same benefits of IV therapy by simply ingesting nutrient rich foods or vitamins. Again, this is extremely misleading information. Typically, you never get the full benefits of ingested nutrients. By the time they’re broken down and ready to enter the bloodstream, they’ve probably lost a lot of their value. Sure, eating these foods is good for you, and you still get some nutritional benefit, but it’s nothing compared to the nutrients you receive in IV therapy. In IV therapy, the nutrients are released straight into the bloodstream, so you get the pure effects.
Myth: There’s No Science Behind It
Wrong again! This myth is ridiculously easy to debunk. First of all, it would be odd for doctors to use a treatment that wasn’t proven to work. Looking a little deeper, when you’re recovering from surgery your body may be experiencing some nutrient deficiency, or you may feel weaker. IV therapy almost instantaneously gives your body the nutrients it needs to rebalance its nutrient levels. The science behind it is quite sound.
