Stress and stress-related tension, fatigue and irritability are all common among adults.
What is IV therapy for stress relief?
Stress relief can be provided with IV therapy at our medspa in Gig Harbor, Washington. Stress and stress-related tension, fatigue and irritability are all common among adults. Outside circumstances can affect our stress levels, but in some cases, the problem might be stemming from vitamin deficiency. This is especially true of people who have unsuccessfully tried to relieve their stress with meditation or breathing exercises. Figuring out which vitamins to take to fix the problem can be overwhelming. That’s where IV therapy comes in. With help from Dr. Rubin, our certified physician, you can get the vitamins you need quickly and effectively so that you can get some much needed stress relief.*
Why use IV therapy?
If you take vitamins or supplements orally, it can take several hours for that tablet to break down and make its way into your bloodstream. With IV therapy, you can get the essential nutrients you need much faster. You will feel the effects of these treatments almost immediately.* Before Dr. Rubin prescribes intravenous treatments, she will run through several tests to make sure that there isn’t a different cause to your stress. If a serious medical condition is not the source, then IV therapy may be right for you.
Which nutrients will I be given?
During your treatment, Dr. Rubin will use a needle injection and you will only feel a slight pin prick. Then Vitamin C, Calcium, B-Complex and magnesium will be used to relieve your stress and improve your overall health.* Vitamin C is one of the most essential immune system boosters and people who are under constant stress tend to have a weaker immune system. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help to lower inflammation in the body. It also aids in the production of serotonin and other neurotransmitters that can affect mood stability. If you find that you cannot take high doses of Vitamin C orally because it upsets your stomach, IV therapy might be a great alternative.*
A healthy amount of calcium is crucial for the transmission of nerve signals between cells. When your calcium levels are low, the nerve cells can become overactive and it can cause anxiety and irritability. Chronic stress can also affect the amount of calcium that your body’s intestines absorb. IV therapy can help to resolve this issue by sending calcium directly into the bloodstream.
B-Complex is the name given for several of the B vitamins (like B6 and B12). Similar to Vitamin C, B-Complex is important for smooth production and management of neurotransmitters in the brain. Increasing B vitamins will help to elevate your mood while also reducing long-term depression and anxiety risks. With low levels of B-Complex, you may feel mild fatigue or complete exhaustion.
When it comes to stress, magnesium is a crucial mineral that helps the body deal with it. If you do not address your chronic stress, it can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease and other serious medical issues. Magnesium helps to keep a lot of diseases in check, and although it can be found naturally in vegetables, a lot of people don’t eat enough veggies to get the full benefits. If your magnesium levels are decent, it’s possible that your body may be struggling to absorb it if you are extremely stressed. IV therapy for stress relief delivers magnesium directly to your cells in order to provide an immediate boost to your immune system.*
