How IV Therapy Can Boost Your Health

How IV Therapy Can Boost Your Health

Everyone is looking for the key to health and wellness, and researchers and social media influencers alike have written books, endorsed products, and otherwise dedicated countless hours to find it. 

But what if we told you that you don’t need to read through medical journals or overhaul your lifestyle to boost your health? 

At Novo Medical Aesthetics in Ridgefield and Wallingford, Connecticut, we believe the key to a truly healthy life begins with balancing your nutrients through IV therapy. Here, our team of wellness specialists takes a closer look at your body and the nutrients it needs, and how IV therapy can restore balance. 

What are nutrients?

You’ve probably heard the wellness buzzword “nutrients” tossed around, but what exactly are they? Scientifically speaking, nutrients are compounds found in the foods you eat that are essential to your life and health. 

Nutrients provide a variety of health benefits, including regulating your energy levels and helping your body monitor various chemical processes. There are six essential nutrients your body needs. They are:

Unfortunately, there are a variety of circumstances and activities that can zap your body’s nutrients or prevent you from absorbing them properly. 

For example, drinking alcohol can cause you to lose nutrients because it acts as a diuretic. That’s why many of our patients ask for IV therapy to help with hangovers.

Sometimes, your diet may be preventing you from getting the nutrients you need. Other times nutrient imbalances occur as the result of a life event or activity, such as surgery, an intense workout, and jet lag.

Whatever’s behind your nutrient imbalance, IV therapy can replenish you. 

How can IV hydration support my health?

When your body is begging for the support only nutrients can provide, we have the answer. IV therapy allows us to restore your body’s reserve of nutrients and can also help you detoxify, balance fluids, and improve immunity and healing. 

We offer a variety of nutrient blends and recommend them based on your unique needs. Our most common therapy treatments are:

We also offer Myer’s cocktail, which is a unique blend of high-potency vitamins and other nutrients, including B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, and magnesium. You can also request certain add-ons for specific concerns, such as pain or nausea.

Each therapy session takes around 30 minutes. IV therapy is highly tolerable and minimally invasive, only requiring a needle for the IV. Many of our patients read a book, listen to music, or even enjoy a snack during their session. 

Results develop shortly after your session and can often last for weeks, but they vary depending on your activity level and your diet. We encourage you to return for another session if you feel you need it.
