IV Infusion Therapy and Magnesium Deficiency

IV infusion therapy has been increasing popularity on the news and social media. It has gained widespread popularity through the thought that it is the new “hangover cure”. Which makes sense, IV infusion therapy is injecting fluids and vitamins directly into the bloodstream for 100% absorption. IV Vitamin drips are great for dehydration and hangovers but these IVs nutrients are beneficial for so much more. I wanted to educate you about IV vitamin therapy and magnesium deficiency.

John Myers MD was the first physician to administer intravenous (IV) vitamins and nutrients to treat fatigue and acute illness. His early work was dedicated in the understanding and treatment of acute and chronic illness. He collected a large amount of data in the conditions of asthma, migraines, fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, cardiovascular disease, upper respiratory tract infections, seasonal allergic rhinitis, chronic urticaria, and many other medical conditions.

The early works of Dr. Myers has been revamped into complex and speciality treatments. Severe diseases are now treated with IV vitamin therapy and producing great results. Dr. Myers found that many individuals he was treating were magnesium deficient and the main cause of many patient’s symptoms. Magnesium is a key nutrient that supports the mitochondria within the cell. Mitochondria is the power source of the cell that supports energy production and cellular metabolism. The take home points are with magnesium supplementation is to increase mitochondria function, which in turn improves energy levels and cellular function to help treat multiple systems of the body.

Some keys signs and symptoms to watch for when thinking about magnesium deficiency is muscle cramps, migraines, poor sleep, chronic pain, headaches, heart palpitations, anxiety, and fatigue.

IV vitamin therapy is a quick and easy way to introduce magnesium into the bloodstream to be used at the cellular level quickly and efficiently. In our modern day society, IV vitamin therapy may be necessary to absorb the many nutrients that are demanded by our bodies.
