Feeling Run-Down? IV Therapy Can Give You a Boost

Constantly feeling run-down makes it that much harder to work and be productive, or even just have a happy, healthy and normal life. IV therapy is innovative and can give you a boost, improve your health and deliver many other benefits.

Brandon S. Fletcher, MD, and everyone here at Nostalgia Family Medicine in Longwood, Florida, strongly believe in preventive care and optimizing wellness. One very effective tool in meeting both of these goals is intravenous (IV) therapy, one of the services Nostalgia Family Medicine proudly offers.

Get a boost with IV therapy

IV therapy is a staple in hospital and emergency care settings, of course, such as to deliver medications directly into a patient’s bloodstream or to treat dehydration. Now it’s being used for so many other purposes, like dealing with migraine headaches, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. 

People suffering from asthma, muscle spasms and pain, allergies, and an array of sinus issues have also experienced positive results. And of course IV therapy is great for reducing stress and eliminating toxins, and it’s an amazing boost for energy, beauty and skin health. 

While it’s no substitute for exercising and eating well, IV therapy can provide your body with many of the nutrients, vitamins and minerals it needs, and it can optimize your health. What Dr. Fletcher uses in your IV is based on what you require and what you’re trying to accomplish. 

It might contain a variety of B vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids, and vitamin C, or what has become known as the Myers’ cocktail, which also has magnesium and calcium. Getting these elements directly into your bloodstream and in a concentrated form immediately feeds your body’s cells, fueling healthier organs and a healthier you.

How IV therapy works

Choosing the right clinic makes a huge difference in any form of care, of course, and you can have confidence in Dr. Fletcher and the team at Nostalgia Family Medicine. We make sure the IV therapy procedure is smooth and easy. 

Usually any side effects are minor, though people with certain allergies and especially those with congestive heart failure may not be able to have the extra fluids in their bloodstream. This is why we always go through everything, including your full medical history, before we recommend any procedure. 

Once you’re in the office, we fully monitor the process, which involves placing the IV drip in your arm, and then having you relax for the roughly 30-minute procedure. Once you’re done, we place a bandage over your arm, and you’re free to get back to your day. Just take it easy on the arm for the next few days.

Depending on your goals, you can have follow-up treatments monthly, or perhaps weekly for chronic conditions or if you’re an athlete in training. You tell us what you need, and Dr. Fletcher creates the perfect plan and IV combination. Let IV therapy give your mood, energy, and focus a boost.
