What Issues Can You Address With IV Therapy?

December 1, 2020

At Medwin Family Medicine & Rehab in Brownsville, TX, we offer patients opportunities to achieve optimal health through IV therapy. Many patients lack sufficient nutritional support in their diets, which can lead to various health issues, including skin and digestion problems, bone diseases, unregulated metabolisms, and more.

IV therapy provides you with a formula of nutrients, including vitamins, amino acids, glucose, salts, and lipids, to support your immune system, energy, and overall wellness. Such a powerful therapy can address many health issues, replacing the need to depend on slow-acting oral vitamins and other less effective treatment methods.

What Health Issues Can You Address With IV Therapy?

Traditionally, intravenous nutrients were used in hospitals to rehydrate patients who were too sick to eat or drink. Today, IV nutrient therapy helps patients receive the highest amount of vitamin and mineral absorption directly in their bloodstream. Instead of having to wait for nutrients to pass through your digestive tract, where they are lost or improperly absorbed, you can now deliver them right into your bloodstream. As a result, you can quickly replenish any nutritional deficiencies and achieve optimal health.

IV nutritional therapy can help address an abundance of health issues, including allergies, cancer, chemic toxicity, drug withdrawal, menstrual cramps, chronic tiredness, muscle spasms, brain disorders, immune disorders are more. Here is a look at just a few issues it can best address:


Many patients who have fibromyalgia find IV therapies helpful in relieving pain associated with muscle soreness, increasing energy, and staying focused for a better quality of life. Such nutrients have been known to alleviate bothersome systems such as trigger points and insomnia. Vitamin infusions can rapidly boost your B-vitamin levels, which can stabilize nerve conduction and ease your pain.

Lyme disease

Lyme disease is an inflammatory disease caused by a bite from an infected tick and can cause localized skin infections, fever, headaches, and fatigue. When left untreated, this disease can potentially spread to the heart, joints, and nervous system. Though it is typically treated with a round of antibiotics, it can also be adequately treated with a course of IV therapy.

Viral & Bacterial Infections

IV therapies are a popular and effective way to treat viral infections such as the common cold, HIV, sinus infections, allergies, stomach viruses, and the flu. Evidence suggests that they may also be useful in treating bacterial infections. Infusions made with high doses of hydrogen peroxide can be used to release more oxygen into your body, which can kill viruses, bacteria, fungi, yeast, and other harmful microorganisms.

Cardiovascular Disease

Vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, potassium, taurine, arginine, carnitine, proline, and phosphatidylcholine effectively support cardiovascular health by treating and improving signs, symptoms, and blood parameters. An infusion of these minerals can help treat high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure to protect your heart health.

What Wellness Issues Can It Address?

Signs of Aging

Did you know that in addition to addressing physical issues, IV therapy can also help you reduce signs of aging so you can maintain your youthful appearance? Anti-aging treatments can support your memory function and slow the onset of degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Plus, it can help you maintain smooth skin, healthy nails, and glowing hair. Anyone struggling with damaged skin or a decrease in collagen production may also benefit from such treatment.

Weight Loss

If you currently keep a healthy diet and regular exercise routine but aren’t getting the results you want, you may benefit from an IV infusion. IV therapy can help boost your metabolism to help burn fat more effectively. It can also help suppress food and sugar cravings. While such a treatment cannot replace a healthy diet and exercise regimen, it can support weight loss and help you achieve your desired weight faster.

Hormonal Imbalances

When there are too many or too few hormonal agents in your bloodstream, it can cause hormonal imbalances, which may bring about adverse effects to your body. Hormonal agents are produced by your endocrine system and travel through the bloodstream to help your organs and tissues function properly.

An imbalance can lead to issues with your metabolism and cravings, heart rate, sleep cycles, sexual function, body temperature, and mood. Since many hormonal imbalances are linked to a vitamin B12 deficiency, an IV infusion of B vitamins may rebalance your hormones.

Mood Disorders

Mood disorders are just one byproduct of a nutritional deficiency. If you feel depressed, mentally exhausted, or down in the dumps, you may be suffering from an underlying cause of chronic dehydration. With IV nutrient therapy, you can directly send an infusion of B vitamins into your bloodstream to help support good mental and emotional health. Such a treatment may be able to help with sugar cravings, anxiety, restlessness, and irritability.

IV therapies are a great way to experience the immediate effects that vitamins and minerals can have on your health by bypassing your digestive system altogether and going directly into your bloodstream. Best of all, a typical treatment session is relatively short. You can receive treatment in under the time it takes to see a movie!
