IV Therapy Can Improve These 10 Conditions

IV Therapy Can Improve These 10 Conditions

IV therapy 一 sometimes called infusion therapy 一 has gained popularity in recent years thanks to its ability to reduce unpleasant hangover symptoms. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg, because IV therapy can do so much more. IV therapy supports your wellness goals by boosting your body with the minerals, vitamins, and nutrients it craves.

To make sure your body has what it needs, Dr. Stuart Kauffman offers IV therapy in-office at PRP in Philadelphia, and wants you to know which conditions can benefit from these nutrient-dense infusions.

Here’s what you need to know.

10 conditions that benefit from IV therapy

Traditionally, IVs have been used to deliver medication or fluids intravenously (straight into your veins). You might have even had one in a hospital or outpatient setting. The process of receiving a therapeutic IV is the same as when you received one in the hospital. 

The difference, though, is what’s in your IV bag, and when and where you receive it. You don’t need to wait until your symptoms have completely overwhelmed you before you benefit from IV therapy. IV therapy gives you a boost when you need it most, and you can enjoy your therapy in our comfortable Bustleton Avenue office. 

Dr. Kauffman focuses on the specific combination of nutritional supplements, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that you need. IV therapy can improve:

  1. Stress
  2. Chronic fatigue
  3. Headaches
  4. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies, including low iron
  5. Digestion problems
  6. Asthma and allergies
  7. Chronic pain conditions, including fibromyalgia and neuropathy
  8. Cancer pain
  9. Weight loss challenges
  10. Hangovers

What Dr. Kauffman includes in your IV infusion depends on what condition you want to overcome. IV therapy 一 regardless of whether you’re dealing with fatigue or headaches or a hangover 一 starts with a saline base. The base, which contains water and sodium chloride, not only helps deliver the nutrients into your bloodstream, but it also combats dehydration. 

Dehydration can cause headaches, nausea, fatigue, brain fog, and irritability, and chances are good that if you’re dehydrated, you probably don’t feel quite like yourself. IV infusion restores your hydration and eliminates the unwanted symptoms of dehydration quickly. 

Other potential vitamins and minerals used in IV infusions include:

Combinations such as the Myer’s cocktail contain a mixture of magnesium, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C. The Myer’s cocktail helps improve many of the conditions listed here, including migraines, fatigue, muscle spasms, and seasonal allergies.

Preparing for your IV infusion

Even though Myer’s cocktails are popular, they aren’t a one-size-fits-all protocol. Before you receive any IV infusion, Dr. Kauffman reviews all of your health history and your symptoms, asks questions about any underlying medical conditions, and incorporates your health goals to create a personalized treatment. 

If an IV infusion isn’t right for you, you’re not out of luck. Other services, such as pain relief PRP injections or hormone replacement, might help you reach your wellness goals as well.
