Medical IV (Intravenous) infusion is used to deliver medications, nutrition and supplements into the body through a person’s veins. Administering substances in this manner is faster and more efficient than oral administration and eliminates any digestive system problems that may occur. Other treatments and therapies also use IV infusion, such as stem cell treatments and platelet rich plasma, with the advantage of targeting damaged or aging tissue and cells to deliver regenerative and healing outcomes. Whether delivered through an IV drip or a syringe, IV therapy is a precise method that can target the affected area without stomach and gastro-intestinal aggravation and more of the substance reaching and being absorbed by the body.
How Medical IV Treatments and Therapies Work
Vitamin C IV therapy that provides powerful antioxidants to boost the immune system and help the body resist infections and Glutathione IV therapy that protects cells of the skin, retina, lens, and cornea are intravenously administered to patients through IV drips by qualified medical personal in infusion centers or clinics. Many patients report an immediate sense of wellbeing once the procedure is finished and the effects may last for weeks. Other IV treatments are administered by a hypodermic needle directly in the blood stream, subcutaneously, intramuscular or directly at the site the healing is most needed. When used in knee stem cell treatment, stem cells are extracted from bone marrow, concentrated in a lab, mixed with the patient’s own blood and re-injected precisely where they are needed to replace and heal damaged or aging tissue, restoring it to health. With Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, the patient’s own blood is put through a process to concentrate the platelets and injected with the patient’s own blood into the affected area.
Stem cell therapy includes healing of bone in this manner but both stem cell therapy and PRP therapy help to heal and restore injured and aging tissue to normal health in the following musculoskeletal areas:
Other Beneficial Alternative Therapies
IV Ozone therapy is another therapy is known to improve patient health by increasing the amount of oxygen in the body, improving the healing process and detoxifying. It helps suppress infection and boost the immune system as well. It started in the early 1950s and shows positive results in treating illnesses as chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme disease, chronic hepatitis and diabetes to name a few.
Neurofeedback and anxiety is another area where alternative treatment has been proven effective for changing patterns of behavior. Anxiety is usually a response to stress that may be caused by psychological, dietary, environmental or physical sources. With neurofeedback a patient can see the reaction in their brain to this stress. The patient is taught ways of managing stress and their brain become train to manage it through neurofeedback therapy. It is a tool that is used with medication but may also help to lessen the amount of medication needed or to help wean the patient off medication entirely. Ask your doctor if alternative therapies and treatments may benefit and help you live a healthier life.
