IV Hydration & Vitamin Therapy in Boston

In recent years, IV hydration and vitamin therapy have soared in popularity. Multiple IV therapy companies have popped up, offering infusions in your home and even at public or private events. These non-invasive treatments are advertised to produce a host of benefits – and as anyone who has watched medical shows on television or has ever been hospitalized understands that IV therapy has been around for decades. What is new is that IV hydration and vitamin therapy in Boston are not limited to the hospital anymore!

What Is IV Hydration and Vitamin Therapy?

IV hydration and vitamin therapy is also sometimes called intravenous micronutrient therapy. During the treatment, an intravenous line is inserted and used to infuse vitamins and fluids into the bloodstream. The process has become popularized, with claims it can cure a hangover, clear your complexion, or improve fatigue. IV vitamin therapy may also help individuals with fibromyalgia, asthma, migraines, and cardiovascular disease. In certain situations, it can also help support your weight loss efforts.

However, each of these claims requires a different mix of vitamins and fluids to achieve the proper results. While small companies have begun offering these services, it is crucial to receive treatment from a physician-led team that can provide safe and effective IV hydration and vitamin therapy in Boston. Please speak with Dr. Dave Lee about how we implement this unique treatment.

What Are the Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy?

Vitamin therapy is administered in a bag of fluid, which can help with your hydration levels. This can be particularly useful when treatment is offered at sporting events to the athletes. The added vitamins can help address vitamin deficiencies when they are related to digestive issues or poor eating habits. Since the vitamins are administered through an IV, it allows for more accurate dosing. This is because the vitamins do not pass through the gastrointestinal system.

Another benefit is that you experience the health effects of the vitamins more quickly than when they are administered by mouth. One of the more popular reasons people choose IV vitamin therapy is as an effective treatment for hangovers, which can help get rid of headaches, nausea, and brain fog.

Athletes also use IV vitamin therapy to help improve physical performance, and consistent IV vitamin therapy in Boston may help manage age-related changes by delivering antioxidants known for their anti-aging benefits.

Potential Side-Effects

As with anything that is added to the body, there are some potential side effects, many of which are mitigated by receiving treatment from a physician-led team. For example, one side effect is nutrient overdose. By delivering too many nutrients to the body, you can overdose on minerals and vitamins triggering several side effects.

IV therapy is commonly used in the hospital with a minimal risk of side effects from infection, air embolism, and injury to the skin and tissue. However, hospital personnel are well-trained and well-educated on the techniques needed to reduce these effects. This is why it is crucial to receive your IV hydration and vitamin therapy from a well-trained and physician-led team, like PURE Cosmetic Center.

Who Should Not Use IV Hydration and Vitamin Therapy?

There are many benefits for people in Boston to receive IV hydration and vitamin therapy, but the treatment is not for everyone. Several medical conditions are contraindications to using IV therapy. Individuals with kidney disease typically must closely monitor their fluid intake. Adding more fluid by using IV hydration can potentially increase the damage to the kidneys.

People with hemochromatosis must ensure that IV vitamin therapy does not include iron. The illness causes people to build up toxic amounts of iron in the bloodstream and additional iron can do more damage. Individuals with a genetic disorder called glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency should also not receive IV hydration or vitamin therapy as it may increase the destruction of red blood cells and lead to further anemia.

Vitamin deficiency is a rampant problem in this country. Unfortunately, the health of the soil has been depleted, which leads to a food supply with lower levels of vitamins than was available even 30 years ago. Added to this, many people also consume ultra-processed foods, which do not have adequate levels of nutrition. IV hydration and vitamin therapy in Boston is one effective means of addressing vitamin deficiencies that can lead to many health problems, including heart disease, migraines, and fibromyalgia.
