Vitamin IV Therapy
Increasing your intake of vitamins and minerals can have an incredible impact on your health and well-being, but taking all those supplements orally can leave you with an upset stomach or other digestive issues. That’s why we offer nutritional IV therapy to give your body what it needs in a way that’s easy to process.
My Anti Aging MD provides the following nutritional IV therapies:
- Vitamin C
- Myers’ Cocktail
Vitamin IV Therapy
High doses of vitamin C can effectively treat common ailments—like the cold, flu, and allergies—but it has some lesser-known uses as well. Because vitamin C helps the body produce powerful neurotransmitters like serotonin, vitamin C IV therapy can also help with neurological problems like depression and fatigue. Vitamin C is also vital for quick recovery after big events like surgery. Getting vitamin C IV therapy before and after surgery will speed up your body’s natural healing process!
Magnesium IV therapy can make a huge difference in your cardiovascular health and has been clinically shown to treat many heart diseases. Because of its ability to improve blood flow and reduce blood pressure, magnesium therapy is used to prevent life-threatening heart attacks and strokes.
This IV therapy has it all. With an effective mix of vitamins and minerals (including both vitamin C and magnesium), the Myers’ Cocktail was developed specifically for IV therapy. It has been used to treat a wide variety of ailments including common and chronic infections, allergies, fatigue, headaches and migraines, hypertension, neuropathic pain, depression and much more!
Overtraining is a “syndrome” because of the following combined emotional, behavioral and physical symptoms:
- Fatigue: This is not the ordinary exhaustion that follows a good workout. This is a persistent weariness that’s present even when at rest and lasts for weeks, if not months.
- Depression and/or anxiety: As with depression caused by other factors, that associated with overtraining syndrome may lead to sleeplessness, loss of appetite, weight loss and reduced sex drive.
- Excessive soreness: When the body is unable to rest, it can’t heal or reinjures itself.
- Reduced strength and coordination: These two pillars of athleticism decrease.
- Upper respiratory infections: Those with overtraining syndrome tend to be more susceptible to viral and bacterial infections.Hormonal changes: blood is tests may show increased levels of cortisol, the body’s stress hormone, and decreased testosterone, which can hold back individual’s ability to recover.
- Change of focus: The feeling of burnout may lead the individual to lose his or her enthusiasm for the sport.
