Infusion Therapy “Cocktails” for General WellnessFebruary 23rd, 2023
Posted by Encore Infusion Site Administrator
At Encore Infusion, we provide a wide range of IV infusions created for both general wellness and specific wellness-related concerns. While the idea of wellness infusions might seem like a new phenomenon, they have been used regularly since the 19th century. They’re also commonly used in settings outside of hospitals and other healthcare facilities.
Sports nutritionists and professional athletes, for example, are huge proponents of IV infusions for hydration, wellness and recovery from illness. Athletes push their bodies and sometimes need to supplement their normal oral hydration. Athletes also typically adhere to long season schedules and must stay in optimum condition for long periods of time. They need to recover quickly too. Yet they are just as susceptible to colds and influenza as anyone. To help maintain their health, collegiate and pro athletes frequently receive various types of wellness infusions.
For many of the same reasons, infusions for wellness are also used by professional performance artists like musicians and actors. Similar to athletes, performance artists often face grueling touring schedules or long filming stints and also need to be able to perform at their best on demand.
For lay people, however, wellness infusions are a great way to administer vitamins and other healthful supplements mainly because fluids introduced intravenously bypass the digestive system. This results in a much higher level of nutrients delivered to the body because they are sent directly through the bloodstream.
When it comes to wellness infusions, there are a number of different blends to consider. A common favorite is the Myers Cocktail. Essentially, this IV infusion combines high potency B-complex vitamins, calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C. The Myers Cocktail is used not only for general wellness, but also for chronic sufferers of fatigue, fibromyalgia, cancer, sinusitis, cold and flu, immune deficiencies, arthritis, asthma, gastrointestinal difficulties, migraine headaches and more. The Myers Cocktail can help offset those ill feelings caused not only by the chronic condition itself, but by the side effects of the medications used to treat the condition.
Wellness infusions go a long way in supporting health, wellness and vitality by delivering hydration, micronutrients, antioxidants, electrolytes, vitamins, minerals and more directly to your body.
