Some people struggle with viral or bacterial infections that affect them for a long period of time. Some illnesses even cause life-long symptoms that can be debilitating and frustrating to live with. There are many chronic conditions out there and they vary in nature and severity. However, IV therapy can bring relief from many of the most common symptoms.
Types of Chronic Infections Commonly Treated with IV Hydration Therapy
Some of the illnesses that can be treated with regular IV therapy include:
- Lyme disease
- Hepatitis B
- Hepatitis C
- Epstein-Barr virus
- Skin infections
- Urinary tract infections
- Sinus infections
- Other sexually transmitted disease
While these conditions are different, they can all lead to fatigue, fever, stomach infection, and joint pain.
How IV Hydration Therapy Can Help
Since long-term infections can put lots of stress on the body, you need to make sure that you’re getting all the nutrients you need so you can be as healthy as possible. Your food should be your primary source of nutrition but many people don’t get all the vitamins and minerals they need from their meals alone. While taking oral vitamins is an option, it is not as effective or efficient as supplementing via IV. Fortunately, many of the vitamins and minerals that doctors advise people with chronic illnesses to take can be administered via IV.
When you take nutrients orally, your stomach and liver have to break them down and only a small portion makes it into the bloodstream. However, when vitamins are administered directly into the bloodstream, they don’t go through the digestive system so the full dosage becomes available to the body almost immediately. It is also much easier to take large doses of vitamins in this way.
People with chronic illnesses also often need more nutrients than they could comfortably consume in the form of food or pills. In contrast, intravenous therapy provides a fast, efficient way to boost your nutrient intake and get relief from symptoms associated with chronic infections. Patients don’t typically experience any discomfort beyond the initial needle prick and they can just relax while they receive treatment.
