9 Benefits of Hydration IV Therapy

By | IV Therapy | No Comments
Written by Chris Meisenhalder

 

You’ve probably been told many times that it’s important to stay hydrated. That used to mean drinking plenty of water and other fluids. But, now there’s a much better way to get your fluids—hydration IV therapy. Active, health-conscious people are discovering that the benefits of hydration IV therapy even outweigh the benefits of drinking lots of water. Here are nine of the key benefits hydration IV therapy delivers:

1. Hydration IV Therapy is More Efficient

Drinking fluids is actually not an efficient way to stave off dehydration. When you drink from a water bottle after a workout the tissues in your throat and along your digestive tract absorb most of the liquid. But, all of the tissues in your body need to be hydrated. That’s the reason you have to drink a lot of water to sufficiently hydrate yourself. Hydration IV therapy injects the fluids directly into your bloodstream so your body can deliver the fluids where you need them most. It’s a faster, more efficient way to hydrate your body.

2. You Need More Than Just Fluids

When your workouts are intense, you are losing more than just fluids. Drinking water isn’t enough. You also need to replenish your electrolytes and other lost nutrients. Drinking water doesn’t do that. Plus, drinking isn’t an efficient way to deliver the nutrients you need when you need them. Hydration IV therapy allows you not only get hydrated, but you also can refresh and replenish your body with the nutrients you need right away.

3. Hydration Therapy is Easier on Your Digestive System

Drinking a lot of fluids can be hard on your digestive system. Often you have to drink a higher volume of fluids than your body can absorb at one time. Your digestive system must work overtime to get rid of the fluids it cannot process. When your body starts to try and get rid of the excess fluids, it can lead to you flushing out many of the nutrients your body needs. If you are taking supplements with our fluids, those supplements can irritate your digestive tract. Hydration IV therapy allows your body to absorb nutrients and fluids without relying on the digestive system. It creates less waste than drinking fluids, and your body can retain more of the nutrients it needs.

4. Reduced Recovery Time

Hydration is critical to the recovery of your body. Athletes need hydration after a workout to help decrease muscle soreness and stiffness. If you are feeling tired after a long day at the office, you are actually dehydrated and need fluids right away to restore your energy. Fluids even help you recover from a hangover faster. Because it is so efficient, hydration IV therapy helps your body recover faster than drinking fluids does after you have been pushing yourself in a workout. The mixture of vitamins, nutrients, and fluids that you get with hydration IV therapy allows you to get back to feeling great in no time.

5. Hydration IV Therapy is Customized to Your Body

We are all different. Our bodies have different needs depending on our health, activity level, and our lifestyle. Drinking fluids doesn’t give your body the specific things it needs to perform at the highest levels. Hydration IV therapy is completely customized to your body. You get the perfect mix of fluids, electrolytes, and nutrients that you need to feel your best. You can have hydration IV therapy that focuses on:
– Athletic recovery
– Energy boosts
– Hangover recovery
– Skin care
– Immunity boosts

6. Immunity Boosts

Nobody likes to be sick. Hydration IV therapy can help you avoid many common illnesses by providing you with a quick and efficient dose of immunity-boosting compounds like Vitamin C and Vitamin B12. Having these vitamins put directly into your bloodstream through IV therapy makes them much more effective than taking them orally. IV therapy is designed to get these immunity boosters to the parts of your body where you need them most.

7. Flushes Toxins from Your System

Dehydration affects your body in many different ways. It can lead to problems with your digestive tract, like constipation. It can damage your liver and kidneys and allow toxins to build up in your system. Hydration IV therapy flushes your body with clean fluids and helps improve the functioning of your vital organs. IV therapy allows your liver and kidneys to do their jobs more efficiently. Your kidneys and liver work to filter out toxins in your body and then eliminate those toxins. Drinking fluids often is too slow to allow your organs to get rid of all of the toxins that have built up. IV therapy quickly delivers the fluids in the proper amounts to all of your vital organs.

8. Improves Cognitive Function

Your brain needs to be well hydrated to work effectively or at its best. By the time you experience thirst, you are already dehydrated. At the earliest signs of dehydration, your brain begins to slow down. You don’t process information as quickly, and your memory may become impaired. Fluids keep your brain functioning properly. When you are well-hydrated, you make better decisions. However, the brain is one of the last places to get hydrated when you are only drinking fluids. Hydration IV therapy improves your cognitive functions much faster than just drinking water.

9. Improved Skin, Joint, and Muscle Health

We are all between 55% and 60% water. When we are dehydrated, we immediately feel the effects. But, the signs of dehydration are more than just being thirsty. Dry skin, joint pain, and muscle aches are also all signs of inadequate hydration. However, getting enough liquids to these trouble areas is a real challenge if you are only drinking fluids. Hydration IV therapy will rapidly improve the health of your skin, joints, and muscles. The powerful influx of fluids and nutrients flushes toxins from these areas and restores them to full health. Hydration IV therapy helps you look and feel healthy, so you can always be at your best.

High Dosage Ascorbic Acid Infusions

Written by Gene Lou, MD

 

Vitamin C or Ascorbic Acid has been well studied since its push into the public eye by Dr Linus Pauling. It has many wonderful properties that help in immune function. Vitamin C is a free radical catcher and antioxidant, and therefore reduces the oxidative stress brought on by inflammatory reactions to infection. It is a key factor in the immune system’s ability to fight infection and is 80x more concentrated in the white blood cells than the rest of the body. It leads to increased production of interferon and reduces the ability of viral replication by interfering with viral DNA/RNA reproduction. In test tubes Vitamin C is able to neutralize all toxins from snake venom to heavy metals, pesticides, cyanide, alcohol, and carbon monoxide.

While the old adage was taking high doses of Vitamin C orally could aid in fighting illnesses, it has been shown that the body will not efficiently absorb over 500mg orally versus when administered intravenously. The excess is just excreted when taken orally. By contrast intravenous Vitamin C is nearly completely absorbed and has not been shown to lead to kidney stones.

High dosage intravenous Vitamin C has been shown to aid in improvement and recovery from illnesses such as Lyme disease, Epstein Barr Virus (mono), Herpes/Zoster/Chicken Pox, West Nile Virus, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons, ALS, Alzheimers, Crohns Disease, Polio, Diphtheria, Measles, Mumps, Viral Pneumonia, and even Cancer.

Cryo Therapy as a Recovery Tool – Should Athletes Use Cryo?

By | Blog, Cryotherapy | No Comments

There are a ton of medical benefits to cryo therapy, making it popular among all types of people. One of the biggest of these benefits is for muscle recovery. It’s even more beneficial for athletes who use their bodies in a highly active way during training, competing, or actual games they play. You’ve probably heard of athletes doing the archaic ice bath a time or two. Today though, athletes can get the same benefits that they did from an hour long ice bath, in a 2 minute hop in the cryo spa.

Anyone who is healthy and active can benefit from cryotherapy sessions, and that’s why thrIVe Drip Spa in Houston has been such a hit. This treatment has been used for decades since the early 70s in Europe, but is just now making a big impact on those who use it in the United States. If you’re into total body optimization, adding a cryo therapy session to your training regimen is easily something you should consider.

The Science Behind Cryotherapy Today

The way that cryo therapy works is simple. In a “cryo spa” a single person chamber is used, you enter the Cryo sauna that is cooled down by a liquid form of nitrogen. Your head and neck are sticking out of the chamber, so that you are breathing room temperature air. Then it allows the surface of the rest of your body to cool down by 30-50 degrees in the three minutes that you are in the extremely cold space. The air alone is chilled to -184 degrees.

Don’t worry though, you don’t have to do the full three minutes. You can build your way up from 30 seconds to three minutes after a few treatments. It just depends on what you can handle. Keep in mind though that your core temperature is not affected, so it’s completely safe. What your body does is response to the cryotherapy is simply amazing. Not only does it release feel good endorphins, burn calories, kick start your metabolism, but it also promotes pain management and muscle rehabilitation when they are sore after sports activity.

Athletes Love Cryo therapy

It’s no surprise given what we’ve discussed that athletes are loving cryotherapy. It’s become a “hot trend” in the spa world that is cool for anyone to try out. Not that athletes have a huge weight management problem, but it does promote weight loss by burning a high number of calories during each session, and rev up the metabolism into high gear.

Simply put, a simple few minute session can assist in the overall training regimen that many athletes subscribe to by promoting healthy muscle tissue, and causing you to lose fat cells in the process. If you’re not trying to shed major wait, it’s a very least a great way for wrestlers and gymnasts to drop a weight class in a pinch.

Celeb Trends: Cryo Therapy for Recovery

Star athletes who are in peak physical condition have said that they like the benefits of this specialized medispa treatment after a tough game. Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers and LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers have said that they have used cryotherapy to help heal injuries they sustain on the court as professional basketball players.

If it’s good enough for “The King” it should be good enough for regular athletes everywhere who want to up their recovery process faster after intense activity. Some pro basketball teams have even invested in their own cryotherapy chambers to utilize for their athletes on a regular basis during the hard playing season.

In other sports such as boxing, one of the greatest athletes in the world right now is Floyd Mayweather Jr. He is an advocate of cryotherapy for all the benefits that it provides to him after the injuries he sustains in the rink, or during intense training. Think about how you would ice a muscle injury after playing a certain sport. That’s how cryotherapy benefits your entire body with taking this simple concept to an extremely cool level of effectiveness.

Myers IV Therapy: Recovery Made Simple

By | Blog, IV Therapy | One Comment

Being busy is good, but hectic schedules can take a lot out of you. After awhile, travel, deadlines and late nights can take their toll. For those with non-stop schedules, IV therapy in Houston offers a quick and effective way to get a much needed boost. One of the most popular “drips” (or IV Infusion Therapy treatments) is the Myers IV therapy Drip.

The Myers Drip, also known as the Myers Cocktail, is a blend of vitamins and minerals first pioneered by Dr. John Myers, a Maryland physician who treated patients through IV infusion therapy. The blend includes B vitamins, magnesium, calcium and vitamin C, as well as electrolytes. It’s administered by IV, just like nutrients are in a clinical setting.

How is the Myers IV Therapy Drip Helpful?

This blend helps busy Houston professionals recover from the rigors of the city’s busy life. B vitamins help us better convert food to fuel and keep us running throughout the day. Everyone knows that calcium helps your bones, but it is also vital to your nervous system, keeping signals firing accurately.

Vitamin C keeps you looking younger by supporting lusher, skin and battling wrinkles. Magnesium is a powerful booster that can help you fight stress, fatigue, aches and pains and even feelings of depression. And, magnesium and vitamin C support your immune system. Together, these support your body’s functions better, increase your energy levels and give you a secret weapon that can get you back to 100% fast.

Benefits of Myers IV Therapy Drip

  • Fights stress
  • Energy and focus
  • Fights Fatigue
  • Improves Muscle growth and recovery
  • Improves Immunity

Why choose IV infusion therapy Instead of Other Options?

Vitamins come in pill form, but that can be the least effective way to consume them. Pills are not always fully analyzed for their vitamin and mineral content; these degrade with age, so you do not know what you are getting. Plus, it all has to go through your digestive system before you can get the benefits.

With IV therapy, you blast through barriers to get these vital nutrients right to where they do your body the most good. From the moment you start your IV infusion therapy, you start feeling the positive effects of the hydration and the electrolytes. The vitamins and minerals go directly into your blood stream, restoring you and helping you recover from everything you put your body through day after day. Therapy is quick and efficient and administered in our relaxing drip spa. You’ll be out and back to you day before you know it.

Ambitious and busy Houstonians work hard and work smart. The Myers IV is a tool to speed your way to recovery when you don’t have time to slow down. By taking a short time out and using this highly effective shortcut, you take a shortcut back to fighting shape.
