Lake Urgent Care Hydration & Wellness Offers a Little “Mommy Magic”
Moms are a curious bunch. We’re always on the lookout for tips on raising kids, household life hacks, recipes to sneak more veggies into meals, you name it. And with so much focus on our families, sometimes we don’t take quite as good care of ourselves. So, if you’re looking to put a little bit of an edge back into your game, IV therapy is a little “Mommy Magic.”
IV Therapy? Tell Me More.
We’ve all stayed in the hospital at some point and been administered an intravenous line. Hospitals have used IVs for decades to deliver fluid, medicine, nutrients or whatever you may need directly to the blood stream bypassing the digestive process, to give you faster, more effective results. Today, you don’t have to be a patient to reap the benefits of IV therapy, Lake Urgent Care Hydration & Wellness offers a variety of options to help combat low energy, boost immune systems and increase your overall sense of well-being. For moms curious about the benefits of IV therapy, we’ve got the deets below.
How does IV therapy work?
Most of us take our vitamins and medicine orally, washing them down with water or whatever liquid may be handy. These vitamins first have to travel through the stomach and digestive tract, which means that approximately 50 percent will not get absorbed into the bloodstream. However, when vitamins are administered through an IV, your body absorbs them at a much higher rate and they can be utilized immediately. The following is a list of the many ways IV therapy can help you.
Did you know that 75 percent of Americans are chronically dehydrated? Yes, we all try to make it a point to drink our water, but sometimes on busy days we might not get that recommended 64+ ounces. Dehydration can make you tired, lightheaded, fatigued and even inhibit your ability to transport sickness-fighting proteins throughout your body. IV therapy instantly rehydrates and detoxifies your system.
Boost Energy Levels
For most moms, chronic fatigue is no joke. Being tired all the time not only wears you down, but can also lead to depression and anxiety. IV therapy naturally boosts your body’s energy levels with ingredients such as B-Complex, B-12, alpha lipoic acid and more, keeping you energized and in a much better mood.
Improve Workout Recovery Time
You may notice that some days it’s harder to bounce back from that boot camp class. IV therapy can help replenish lost vitamins to shorten recovery time from workouts and sports, and even improve your performance.
Combat Aging & Enhance Beauty
Many IV therapy cocktails provide antioxidants that combat free radicals, which cause cell aging and tissue damage to the human body. In addition, these nutrients also help to fortify hair, skin and nails, reduce wrinkles and quench skin from the inside out.
Boost Immune System
IV nutrition contributes directly to a stronger immune system and the body’s capacity to fight infection, enhance cellular repair and support healthy blood and nervous system function. Vitamin therapy can help you prevent illnesses and get better protection against flu viruses. In many post-COVID and post-flu patients, IV therapy assisted in alleviating long-term symptoms.
Specific blends of vitamins, fluids, and fat-burning compounds can be used to help your body burn fat naturally at a higher rate. Combined with proper diet and exercise, this cocktail can speed up the weight-loss process and help you feel more energized even if you’re cutting calories.
Fast Hangover Relief
If Mama enjoyed a little too much chardonnay last night or shouldn’t have taken that last tequila shot, IV vitamin therapy can be a life saver. Due to its restorative ingredients, a hangover blend can help you get rid of headaches, nausea, and brain fog caused by excessive drinking. In fact, following a 45-minute IV vitamin drip, you’re as good as new.
