It is cold season in the Rockies!
What can you do for a quick immune boost to get tell that cold goodbye?
You can get a Myers’ Push….
A Myers’ Push is a form of IV therapy that combines a cocktail of vitamins and minerals to support many aspects of health including the immune system. The treatment takes about 15-20 minutes and involves the doctor “pushing” the content of a syringe into your vein (hence the term intravenous or IV).
Sound gruesome? Keep listening…
Administering vitamins and minerals by IV rather than orally allows you to assimilate them faster and better. We bypass the digestive tract (which includes the liver), and send nutrients directly into your blood, reaching organs and immune cells more readily. For this reason, IV therapy can be particularly useful if you don’t have a perfect diet or great digestion.
The ingredients of a Myers’ cocktail include magnesium, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C. Myer’s Pushes are ideal for fighting chronic sinus infections, allergies, asthma, fatigue and upper respiratory tract infections; and supporting conditions including colds and flus.
The vitamins and minerals in a Myers’ Push act to boost the body’s immune function, thus improving the patient’s ability to fight infection. After all, the signs and symptoms of illness are an indication that there is a disturbance in the determinants of health, or the things that keep us feeling well. If you have nasal congestion, a cough, and body aches, your body is making mucus to drown infection, making you cough to get that infection out of your lungs, and your immune system is revving up to fight off the infection. By receiving a Myer’s Push, a patient gets the extra boost of vitamins and minerals that can optimize immune function.
A Myers’ Push can also be a great measure to give the immune system a boost going into cold and flu season, while traveling, or if family members are sick. Our ideal goal is to prevent dis-ease and a Myers’ Push is a useful tool for immune support.
What Is IV Therapy?
IV Therapy is a short-cut to nourishing every cell in your body in a hurry!
IV Therapy is used to deliver vitamins, minerals, fluid, and/or other substances directly into the blood stream. In IV therapy, a needle is used to puncture your vein, similar to getting your blood drawn. However, in place of taking your blood, nutrients are infused instead!
By directly infusing these substances into your blood, they are immediately available for the cells in our body to use. This increases energy, fights illness and generally makes you feel good!
When we use IVs to deliver nutrients, we skip having to absorb and metabolism these substances through the digestive tract. Delivering nutrients through IV’s allow for a higher concentration and increased utilization in the body.
What Is IV Therapy Good For?
IV therapy can be used to help you achieve higher levels of health. There are many factors that come into play in reaching optimum health and IV therapy is only one piece of that puzzle! By ensuring our body access and utilization of nutrients, we supply it with the building blocks it needs to heal and function optimally.
Delivering nutrients through IV’s can be helpful for a variety of medical concerns including:
- Fighting Colds/flus
- Improving Sleep
- Increasing Energy and Reducing Fatigue
- Curing Hangovers
- Preventing and Stopping Migraines
- Reducing Asthma and Allergies
- Reducing Chronic Pain and Fibromyalgia
- Improving Your Mood
- Recovery from training and injury
- And so much more…
What Can I expect?
Treatments times can last from 15 minutes to 3 hours. Usually people feel relaxed or energized after an IV infusion. One of the biggest benefits of IV therapy is cellular HYDRATION, it’s like a BIG drink of power-filled water to your cells! This helps mental functioning, elimination and improves mood.
Depending on your concern, single or multiple sessions may be recommended. Before starting IV therapy, a medical intake must be done so we can customize the perfect nutrient combination for you.
