Gut health is the first step toward a higher quality of life. Intravenous (IV) therapy addresses nutritional deficiencies that cause fatigue, so you feel energized and revitalized after just one treatment.
It is our mission at Drypskin to boost your self-esteem and well-being.
Dr. Khan, our primary practitioner, focuses on personalized care and natural treatment methods. This includes IV therapy to help with pain relief, regaining functionality, and even mood stabilization if you suffer from anxiety or depression.
So, what is the relationship between gut health and overall health, and how can IV therapy help? Here's what you should know.
What exactly is gut health?
When we say "gut," we're referring to your gastrointestinal tract, also known as your digestive system. Your gut contains a variety of organs, including:
● Small intestine
These systems that comprise your gut work together, and it is critical to maintain the health of these vital organs. The bacteria in your digestive system are referred to as "gut health." You might think that having bacteria in your body is a bad thing.
When it comes to gut health, however, you need good bacteria in your system to keep you happy and healthy. According to WebMD, gut bacteria influences your risk of depression, diabetes, and colon cancer. Obesity may be caused by poor gut health.
There's no need to be concerned if this sounds concerning to you. There are numerous ways to maintain optimal gut health. One method is IV therapy.
What exactly is IV therapy?
Everyone, like a fingerprint or DNA, has unique nutritional needs and deficiencies. IV therapy addresses these deficiencies by replenishing your body with vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients.
When good bacteria enters your body (for example, when you eat yogurt), your digestive tract destroys it before it reaches your bloodstream.
This means that even if you're eating a balanced diet and taking supplements, your gut health may still be deficient in essential nutrients.
IV therapy ensures that the correct amount of bacteria enters your bloodstream directly. Among the beneficial nutrients are:
● Vitamin B
● Vitamin C
What is the duration of IV therapy?
Each IV therapy session is less than an hour long. You are welcome to bring a book, tablet, laptop, or even a pillow and nap while our Drypskin team works to improve your gut health.
For the first few weeks, our specialists usually recommend that you start with one or two IV therapy sessions per week. To live your best life, it's critical that your nutritional deficiencies are addressed as soon as possible.
You'll notice improvements quickly, and eventually, you'll be able to come in once a month as part of your overall preventive medical care plan.
What is the purpose of IV therapy?
Aside from improving and balancing your gut health, IV therapy can help with:
● Chronic discomfort (fibromyalgia)
● Irritable bowel syndrome
● Inflammatory conditions (rheumatoid arthritis)
● Allergies, whether seasonal or chronic
Some people even use IV therapy to get healthier skin, relieve stress, or treat an illness that prevents nutrients from being absorbed.
