Seasonal Cold Booster – IV Vitamin Therapy

 

Have you ever had a stuffy and clogged nose? A Slight fever? A scratchy throat? Or maybe your senses are dull. You might just have a cold. They are an actual thing, despite popular belief. Your respiratory system is one of the most vulnerable parts of your body. An adult catches the cold on an average of four to five times a year, while children suffer three times more. Have you ever wondered what causes them? Let’s take a look at the causes, prevention and alternatives.

 

What causes them?

 

All these symptoms are signs of a minor infection. There are over 200 types of viruses that cause the common cold, but rhinoviruses are the most common. These type of infections usually only last for a week, however it still depends on your life-style and immune system. If you have asthma or bronchitis you should be well versed in factors that can increase the chances of getting a cold. A weak immune system is primarily to blame if you catch colds too often. Your immune system is the shield that protects your body from the bacteria that surrounds you. Your environment is also a contributing factor. If you already know that you have a weak immune system then you might want to live in an area with less pollutants, such as the provinces and country side. But, most important is your life-style and wellness choices. “An apple keeps the doctor away” is something you see all over your doctors clinics, and its true. Eating a balanced diet filled and staying fit is the best way to preserve your health. They enter your nose, mouth and eyes because they are small water droplets. If someone with a cold sneezes near you, there is a high chance that you would catch it.

 

What are possible complications?

 

The common cold is a mild respiratory infection, but big things always start from something small. If colds are left untreated it might trigger an asthma attack. Asthma is one of the nose common respiratory problems caused by an over production of mucus. Hence, no treating a cold quickly might increase the chances of an attack. Acute ear infection (Otitis), if bacteria enters the air pocket behind your eardrum it would lead to a discharge or the reoccurrence of your cold. The most common complication is Sinusitis, or the inflammation of your sinuses. Trust me none of these complications are easy to manage.

 

 

 

What can help?

When your suffering from a cold you can take over the counter medicines to help soothe the symptoms. Advil, Tylenol and Benadryl are highly suggested because they immediately fight against cough, stuffy noses, congestion and headaches. If your cold doesn’t go away on its own after a few days it is still best to seek professional help from your physician.

But prevention is always better than cure. So here are some ways we can reduce the risk of getting the common cold.

Make washing your hands a habit. Since a cold and other illnesses are contact viruses keeping your hands squeaky clean prevents you from accidentally allowing these viruses passage into your body. Clean and declutter on a regular basis. Dust can irritate your respiratory system and lead to a lengthy cold. So make sure that you properly disinfect your belongings on a regular basis; cleanliness is, after all next to godliness. And always maintain a healthy diet and over all lifestyle. Taking vitamins and supplements are a great way to make sure your body is in top condition.

 

What is the best alternative?

Not everyone is fond of taking medicines for something so simple. People want to go back to their roots and use the power of mother nature to cure illnesses that’s why IV vitamin therapy was created.

 

Ascorbic acid or Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant found in citrus fruits, berries, papaya, peppers, kale and tomatoes. It has been found to increase the production of collagen that helps boosts the immune system. In the 1950’s vitamin c was a major tool used in cancer treatment to protect healthy cells from cancer invasions. Vitamin C therapy has played a huge role in the fight against lung, prostate and breast cancer. Even though it is known as a cancer warrior vitamin c therapy has other applications.

 

Unlike most mammals, humans do not have the capabilities to produce their own Vitamin C. When our bodies are stressed it automatically secretes vitamin C we have stored in our bodies from our day-to-day diet, but this is not enough. This is where IV Vitamin C therapy comes in. Taking the necessary amount of Vitamin C is much easier by intravenous. Taking vitamin c orally reduces the amount that gets absorbed in the bloodstream. And if you were to use supplements over 2000-6000mg a day it might lead to side effects like diarrhea. When you take your Vitamin C intravenously you will avoid side-effects and be able to absorb the vitamins 100%.

 

When you take Vitamin C conventionally, all it does is act as antioxidant protecting your cells from infection. With IV Vitamin C therapy it actually becomes a “pro-oxidant” that creates cells that fights bacteria and viruses. Hydrogen Peroxide is the result of high dose Vitamin C therapy, it is known as an organic mechanism your immune system uses to defend your body from invasive elements. After it has done its duty, it will break down into water and oxygen ensuring that it dose not interfere with other body processes.

 

If you are reluctant to try this alternative trend, don’t be. IV Drip Therapies are only administered by professional Nurses, practitioners and physicians. The frequency of the therapy is always on a case-to-case basis, professionals will first evaluate the health state of your body before recommending any form of IV therapy. It is not very likely that any one would suffer from over dose because the treatment plan would always suggest a maximum of twice a month. The alternative cocktail will be present in you bloodstream for the next two to three weeks ensuring that all those vitamins will be fully absorbed.

 

There are dozens of different IV Vitamin cocktails such as:

  • Other than Vitamin C drips that boost your immune system,
  • Beauty infusions that keep you feeling fresh and blooming, making your hair and skin silky smooth,
  • Hydration Infusion which replenish lost electrolytes,
  • Endurance infusion the perfect combination of amino acids,
  • Hangover infusion that detox your liver and boosts your energy, and
  • Healing infusions that boosts your metabolism, aimed for those that are about to go through surgery,

Before signing up for any IV Vitamin therapy make sure you consult with the clinics resident physician, so that they can create a cocktail perfect for you.

 

As our society modernizes so does our medical knowledge. We no longer have to depend on conventional medicines and their long list of possible side-effects. With IV Vitamin therapy you can rest easy knowing that your body is getting healthy with the power of mother nature. Keeping our bodies in tip-top shape is one of our most vital responsibilities, putting only clean and natural ingredients in our bodies makes it easy. Gone are the days where in one false move you could suffer potentially life changing side effects.

The B12 vitamin is a nutrient that helps keep the body’s nerve and blood cells healthy and helps make DNA, the genetic material in all cells, amongst other great proven benefits. You can take B12 in pill form or inject it into the muscle, under the skin, or directly into the bloodstream via IV therapy. IV vitamin therapy is a great way to receive the benefits B12 has to offer immediately.

  • Fatigue
  • Loss of balance
  • Pale skin
  • Depression

  • Sore tongue
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Sore tongue
  • Memory loss

 

Vitamin B12 is crucial in the various metabolic process in the body, and participates in red blood cell production, the functioning of the nervous system, even affecting levels of other compounds in the body that help in the maintenance of organs such as the brain, heart, and eye.

Boost mood and energy with B12 Shots

With that said, there is an abundance of benefits that vitamin b12 offers. B12 can boost mood and energy. It helps to regulate sleep, appetite cycles, and it helps to increase the immune system.

B12 can be used to correct megaloblastic anemia but can have severe side effects, so do not use unless a physician closely monitors you. Anyone with Leber’s eye disease is advised against taking B12 in any form because it can severely damage the optic nerve and lead to blindness.

B12 can be bought in tablet form over the counter in your local drug store, or injected via IV drip or intramuscularly. In some cases, IV and B12 shots may be combined for more extended lasting results.

Chelation IV Therapy

As IV vitamin therapy is gaining popularity, so are its benefits. Not only can you infuse vitamins directly into your bloodstream, but you can also detox your body as well. At Inspire Med Spa, we now offer chelation IV therapy to detox your body and get you back to feeling right.

 

What is Chelation Therapy?

 

Chelation therapy is considered an alternative medicine. Its purpose is to remove heavy metals and toxins from the body. Chelation is a chemical substance that is used to bind molecules (like metals and minerals) and hold them so they can be removed from the body. The most common form is a human-made amino acid called EDTA. This substance claws onto and traps these harmful substances and removes them, allowing the body to function correctly.

 

Benefits of Chelation Therapy

There are numerous benefits for chelation IV therapy. Chelation therapy typically results in lower blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, and a general sense of improved energy and improved well-being. It can help improve circulation and arteriosclerosis (hardening and plaquing of the arteries). It can help to enhance your taste, vision, and hearing. It can potentially lower insulin requirement for insulin-dependent diabetics. Chelation can relieve muscle cramping in legs. It can improve kidney function. It can even help to get a clearer mind, so it can prove to be useful for patients with Alzheimer’s disease, people who suffer from forgetfulness, to name a few. Many chronic diseases are caused or enhanced by the toxicity of heavy metals. Chelation IV therapy can help manage many different symptoms.

 

Let’s Detoxify your body from Heavy Metals

While there are many benefits, there are also the slight chance of side effects. With any chemical, an allergic reaction is possible. Some may experience nausea, vomiting, or headache. The doctor will discuss all side effects towards extracting heavy toxins from the body. 

 

Even though chelation is typically safe, people with any health issues such as high blood pressure, cholesterol, or kidney problems should make the issues known to the physician. If any medication is taken to combat those issues, they may need to be adjusted.  Your doctor may want to have a revitalization therapy in between chelation therapy sessions.

 

Book your consultation today with one of our experts at Inspire Med Spa. We can help you on your path to better health and wellness. See if chelation IV therapy is the right choice for you.

 

Work in occupations that expose you to heavy chemicals such as construction, painting, factory work etc.?  Consider this as an option towards your overall health.

Being Safe with Injections

It’s 2019, and you probably feel like it’s time to do a little sprucing up. You want to take care of yourself a little better. You want that old youthful glow that you once had that’s now slowly disappearing. Considering doing cosmetic procedures to give yourself a little lift? Be wise. Make sure your doctor is very careful with handling those needles!

The World Health Organization defines a safe injection as one that does not harm the recipient, one that doesn’t harm the health care worker, and one that doesn’t harm the community. It doesn’t just have to be about cosmetic injections. It includes vaccinations and IV procedures. When you are consulting with your plastic surgeon about the cosmetic procedure you wish to have done, be sure to walk out of there with no question left unanswered. Be certain  you know all of the potential risks and decide for yourself whether the benefits outweigh them. Make sure that the plastic surgeon of your choice is Board Certified and someone with years of experience that you can trust. Take all of the precautions you need to take before signing that waiver to begin that procedure.

Lots of cosmetic procedures are considered to be safe. However, one important factor to consider is needle hygiene. Quite frequently, people like to have their procedures done in places where it’s cheaper, but the cheaper outlets are not always promising of the best and cleanest results. Fun fact: 40% of injections worldwide are administered with unsterilized, reused syringes and needles, and in some countries this proportion is 70%. This unsafe practice exposes millions of people to infections. New and sterile needles should be used for every injection to prevent skin irritation and injection-site infections. Used needles should be disposed of in a sharps container to prevent accidental sticks to other people.

These injectable fillers and IV therapy treatments are deemed relatively safe by the FDA, manufacturers, and plastic surgeons. Though good results are expected of every procedure, they have their share of possible side effects, some more serious than others. Here at Inspire Med Spa, you’ll get excellent service provided by board certified doctors with years of experience and a staff that will go above and beyond to meet whatever needs you have. We’ll take all your concerns into consideration and do the best to answer all your questions in order to make things as clear and as comfortable as possible, all before you decide to give the procedure the green light.

Consult with the best in New Jersey to tackle your health and cosmetic concerns. Your health, wellness, and safety are our number one priority. Contact Inspire Med Spa today.

IV Vitamin therapy has become the new health craze amongst your favorite celebrities such as Rihanna, Simon Cowell, Madonna, and many more. IV therapy is a custom-made intravenous drip that is injected directly into the bloodstream. Some of the overall benefits of IV therapy include increased energy levels, healthier, younger looking skin, a boost in the immune system, and making you less prone to infection. Essentially, IV vitamin drips may offer you the best alternative to improving your health and wellness.

 

IV vitamin therapy was originally invented by Baltimore physician John Myers and was introduced as Myer’s Cocktail. It was composed of magnesium calcium, various B vitamins, and vitamin C. it was used to treat a variety of conditions. While this cocktail is still used today, this remedy has evolved into mixtures that are customized based on patient’s needs.

 

Before you start your treatment, you will consult with one of our physicians, and an extensive background check of your health history will be conducted. Your doctor will recommend blood work to be done to determine your current health state. Based on your needs, you will get a customized IV drip. The treatment itself lasts 20 minutes to an hour. There are little to no side effects after treatment, so you can return to daily activities as soon as possible. The number of treatments needed varies per person.

Proper protocol and dosing have shown no serious side effects, though some potential side effects can include feeling drowsy, dehydrated, or a minor headache. This is why only taking the recommended dosing and treatment is important and required. With that being said, if you have certain health conditions, such as kidney problems, or you retain fluids, it’s best you not engage in IV therapy. Be sure to check with your primary care physician if you are uncertain.
