From Hangovers to Back Pain, IV Nutrient Therapy Combats the Stresses of Daily Life

Whether you’re struggling with a chronic condition, in need of an energy boost, or looking for a quick fix for the aftermath of last night’s celebration, IV nutrient therapy might be the solution you need. 

If you’re in the market for a reviving dose of nutrients, Dr. Anthony Aghenta and our team at GhentMD in Gilbert, Arizona, can help enhance your nutritional status and put you on the road to better health. Here’s how we do it.

What is IV nutrient therapy?

If you have ever been admitted to the hospital, you’ve likely received an IV to give you fluids or medication in a quick, efficient manner. 

IV nutrient therapy works the same way a liquid infusion of vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants is injected straight into your bloodstream. This lets your body use the nutrients much more quickly and effectively than if you ingested it by mouth. Oral vitamins only deliver about 10-25% of their nutritional value to your cells.

What conditions does IV nutrient therapy treat?

Every patient is different. Here at GhentMD, each IV bag of fluids is customized for every patient for each visit, based on what they want to treat. This can range from overall wellness to specific conditions, including lack of energy, migraines, asthma or allergies, hangovers, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and more. 

Yes, IV nutrients do help you feel better after a night of drinking. But no, they are not a “get-out-of-jail-free” card.

Common vitamins in the drips include vitamin C, calcium, some B vitamins, magnesium, and even some amino acids. Getting these injections can often cut down on the amount of pills patients have to take, plus the effects are stronger and more immediate.

The nutrients control how your cells function, which controls how your organs work. When these vital functions are in top shape, your overall health will improve as well!

What should I expect?

IV nutrient treatment is painless, fast (each visit is 30-60 minutes), and effective. Most patients experience best results anywhere from a few hours to a few days later. 

There are a couple of risks to watch out for. Any time you get an injection, infection is a possibility. You should also be careful that you don’t take too much of any one nutrient, which can have severe health consequences (too much of a good thing can still have negative effects). 

Not every IV nutrient facility is created equal, and they are not always tightly regulated). So make sure you choose a clinic that is professional and managed by a trained physician. Here at GhentMD, you can rest assured that you’re in the hands of a caring and experienced team, led by board-certified physician Dr. Aghenta.

When you’re ready for IV nutrient therapy, our integrative health practice here in Gilbert, Arizona, is ready for you. Contact the clinic today (call or book an appointment online) to get started on your journey to more energy and better health!
