How IV Therapy Improves Your Overall Health

Did your last cold deplete all of your energy stores? Surprisingly, IV therapy can help hydrate and energize you after a cold, but that’s just one of its benefits. The popularity of IV therapy blossomed as celebrities publicly shared their success with the treatment as a way to detox and rehydrate after a long weekend, but the reality is that there are many different formulas and a variety of uses for IV therapy. 

At Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Jack Hensel Jr. is proud to offer safe and effective IV therapies to help patients improve their overall wellness. If you’re considering IV therapy, there are many ways that our FDA-approved IV therapies can improve your overall health.

IV therapy can:

1. Replenish essential nutrients

One of the most popular IV formulas -- the Myers’ cocktail -- can rehydrate and re-energize you. With the B vitamins, magnesium, and vitamin C, this IV therapy is known for soothing muscles while providing the nutrients that help you feel your best. 

2. Support healthy weight loss 

There’s no denying that the market is flooded with get-skinny-quick schemes, but the majority of “easy solutions” are not good for your body. IV therapy isn’t a magic cure for weight loss, but it does support your body so that you can reach your weight-loss goals. The nutrients in IV therapy support a healthy immune system, boost your energy levels, and speed up your metabolism -- three things that are essential for losing weight in a safe manner.

Combine our Athletic Boost IV with a healthy diet and exercise routine for the ultimate kickstart to wellness. Maintaining a healthy weight helps promote good cardiovascular health while reducing your risk of certain diseases like diabetes and some cancers.

3. Support your body during cold and flu season

It’s October, which means it’s the official start to cold and flu season. Thankfully, there are many ways to decrease your risk of catching a cold this year. In addition to practicing good hygiene and following a well-balanced diet, you can also consider IV therapy. Certain formulas of IV therapy are intended to support your immune system after a cold -- or even as a preventive measure. Immune-boosting IV therapies help keep colds at bay thanks to their generous dose of vitamin C. These formulas also contain glutathione and B vitamins.

4. Boost your hydration levels

Do you drink the daily recommendation of 64+ ounces of water? Staying properly hydrated doesn’t just give you soft, supple skin; every single cell in your body depends on adequate hydration in order to function properly. Proper hydration is essential for healthy digestion, weight loss, increased energy, and even positive moods.

IV therapy can help you combat dehydration after a cold, after traveling, or even after a long weekend. At Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center, we also encourage IV therapy as a way for patients to promote healing and hydration after surgery.

5. Combat symptoms of PMS 

Did you know that magnesium is a nutrient known for combating muscle cramps? When magnesium is combined with other nutrients (such as vitamin B complex and lipotropic enzymes), IV therapy can help alleviate symptoms of premenstrual syndrome.

Not sure which IV therapy is right for you? Dr. Henley and our team at Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center offer personalized support when designing your IV formulas and treatment plans based on your specific needs and goals.
