Should I Consider IV Therapy?
IV therapy has been a common practice for decades. The pioneering treatment that has been found to be effective for everything from migraines to weight loss was originally developed by Dr. John Myers, MD. The “Myers Cocktail” included magnesium, calcium, B-vitamins, and Vitamin C, delivered by IV. The benefit of IV therapy is that, instead of being absorbed at low rates during digestion in the form of multivitamins, vitamins delivered via IV into the blood stream are directly absorbed, so that the body gets more of the benefit of the vitamins and minerals.
What Can IV Therapy Be Used to Treat?
There are a wide variety of conditions that can benefit from IV therapy. Many people use IV therapy for pain management. It can be very effective in treating migraines, refractory headaches, and hangovers. It can also help minimize the pain from fibromyalgia. Dr. Katayoun Motlagh offers IV vitamin infusion therapy to treat chronic fatigue, dehydration, autoimmune disorders, vitamin deficiencies, and sexual dysfunction among many others. There are many different vitamins that can be delivered intravenously, including B-Complex, Biotin, Folic Acid, Vitamins B1, B5, and B6; Vitamin C, and magnesium.
How Does IV Therapy Work?
IV infusion therapy uses an IV to deliver a solution of vitamins, trace minerals, and hydration-supporting fluids. Each patient’s treatment can be customized to meet their specific needs. More than one condition can be treated at a time with IV therapy. There are additional benefits from IV therapy, including detoxification, weight loss, and an improved immune system. To begin IV therapy treatment, Dr. Motlagh will discuss your medical history and symptoms to determine the best vitamin treatment to administer. Once the solution is prepared, it only takes about 30 minutes to complete the transfusion. Most patients experience immediate improvement.
