IV Vitamin Drips to Boost Immune System | IV Vitamin Therapy Los AngelesVitamins are vital for a healthy body and mind. Many people have vitamin deficiencies. This can be a result of certain disorders, genetic predisposition, or diet issues. If your vitamin levels are low, intravenous (IV) vitamin drips boost your immune system by replenishing your vitamin levels.

In order to boost your immunity, you can rely on certain foods that are rich in vitamins and antioxidants or you can try some over-the-counter vitamin supplements. IV vitamin drips are a brand new method that can boost your immune system in order to fight any microbial infections or prevent you from becoming ill in the first place.

While supplying your body with vitamins, IV therapy detoxifies your systems. Detoxification means removing harmful toxins and free radicals, which damage your cells and cause health issues including impairment of the immune system.

How do IV drips work?

IV fluid drips provide our bodies with a combination of vitamins, trace elements, electrolytes, and saline solution. According to the health needs of the person, a group of IV formulas is blended together. It is not just a single formula for everyone; it differs according to your needs.

It is a simple process and you have already seen it a million times. An IV catheter is directly inserted into your vein and the line is attached to a bag containing the saline solution, which is placed above your head. By hanging the bag in a higher position, gravity plays a role to provide the patient with the solution slowly over time. The principle here is that the fluid is not forced into your bloodstream like with IV syringes for example.

Most IV therapies take about 30 to 45 minutes. It varies from person to another. The only exception here is our NAD IV Infusion Therapy, which takes 3 to 4 hours maximum.

Is IV therapy safe?

Administering IV therapy is a safe process and well-tolerated by nearly everyone. Few patients may experience minimum side effects during or after IV therapy, but they are usually expected. The most common side effect is the infection risk where the needle is inserted. Other side effects such as hematoma and air embolism rarely occur.

At our Beverly Hills center, we make sure that the procedure is safe and we inform our patients about their general condition. One member of our staff stays with you during the entire time to monitor your vital signs throughout the procedure and to make sure you are always comfortable.

IV vitamin therapy vs oral supplements

There is a huge difference between IV vitamin therapy and immune-boosting oral supplements. Oral vitamin supplements are not fully absorbed by the body. They enter the digestive system first, get processed by digestive acids, and then are absorbed. This whole process takes time and does not result in the full absorption of the ingested vitamins.

On the other hand, when the same amount of vitamins and antioxidants are administered intravenously by IV vitamin therapy, these immune-boosting elements bypass the digestive system and are absorbed completely.

Is IV vitamin therapy for you?

IV vitamin therapy is highly effective in boosting immunity when administered regularly. It is a great option for those who have vitamin deficiencies as well as those who want to optimize their vitamin levels to improve their immune system. IV vitamin therapy also has additional benefits like stress relief and healthier skin.

You would be a good candidate for IV vitamin therapy if you are among the following groups:

  • Malabsorption disorders including Crohn’s disease
  • Cold, cases of flu, seasonal allergies, and migraines
  • Acute conditions like hangovers, overexertion after extreme workouts, and jet lag
  • Chronic conditions such as asthma, hypothyroidism, and fibromyalgia
  • Feeling fatigued with low energy
  • Drinking alcohol on a regular basis
  • Exercising and training rigorously

Before any IV vitamin therapy is administered, your doctor will ask for a full medical and surgical history first. It is important to share these details, so your doctor knows what the root cause of your symptoms is. Our doctors can also perform a blood test to check your vitamin levels and determine if you suffer from any vitamin deficiencies. Once your vitamin needs are evaluated, your IV vitamin therapy will begin. You do not need to have blood work performed in most cases prior to most IV drips.

Our Beverly Hills center offers Los Angeles residents various types of IV vitamin therapies. If you have any questions, Dr. Nazarian and his team are happy to answer it. Contact us on 877-760-3564.

Do you find yourself feeling shaky, weak, and a bit under the weather lately? Have you felt this way for more than a few days? Let’s face it. In Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, we live busy lives and are on the go 24/7. But, when you consistently feel like you are on the verge of catching something or trying to fight off a cold, you may be Vitamin B Deficient in Los Angeles. Interestingly, it is much more common than we realize. Also, left untreated it will become a pressing health issue. The family of B Vitamins consists of a total of eight (8). We know vitamins are significant to are all around health, but the B Vitamin family plays a vital function in the following processes:

  • The metabolic role of converting food into energy.
  • Blood cell production
  • Neurological function
  • Cellular signaling
  • DNA production and repair
  • Metabolizing amino acids

In addition to these functions, they also aid in stress reduction, relieving anxiety, prohibiting memory loss, and lowering heart disease risk. B Vitamins are water soluble. What does this mean? Well, they do not stay in the tissues of our body, and they get flushed out daily. For this reason, we need B Vitamins IV Therapy Los Angeles to avoid deficiency. Before we look at the four (4) categories of deficiency, remember that the common thread is they are water soluble. To keep it simple, they travel through our bodies; they are not permanent guests!

Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)

Thiamine is a supplement that you can get as a prescription and over the counter at almost any local grocery store. Thiamine is commonly known as Vitamin B1. People take this for beriberi (usually because of alcoholism), inflammation of the nerves (neuritis) associated with pellagra or pregnancy. Pellagra causes dementia, diarrhea, and dermatitis. It is one of the most severe deficiencies if left untreated. Many people take it for digestive problems to treat ulcerative colitis, poor appetite, and chronic diarrhea.

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)

Vitamin B6 is water-soluble and serves several functions in our bodies. While most people can absorb adequate amounts of B6 through their diets, some people are at risk for deficiency. Foods like turkey, chickpeas, tuna, salmon, potatoes, and bananas are rich in Vitamin B6. These should be a regular part of your diet.

Vitamin B9 (Folate)

A lot of people refer to Vitamin B9 as Folate or Folic acid. Folate is one of the critical components for the formation of red blood cells. When we do not have enough Vitamin B9, our bodies are at risk of becoming anemic. Folic acid is essential during pregnancy for the healthy development of the baby and the health of the mother. While some of you may be aware that Folic Acid is water-soluble, you may not realize that overcooking your vegetables in boiling water depletes many of the essential nutrients. Steaming your vegetables is much better than boiling and will help to ensure your body absorbs enough Vitamin B9.

The following foods, vegetables, and fruits are rich in Folic Acid:

  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Broccoli
  • Peas
  • Beans
  • Oranges
  • Pork
  • Chicken
  • Shellfish

Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin)

Cobalamin is another name for Vitamin B12. In addition to producing red blood cells and DNA, it is a primary factor in the proper functioning of your nervous system. Do you eat enough meat, fish, eggs, and dairy products? Older adults are the most common age group at risk for B12 deficiency in Beverly Hills.

Other groups who are not able to absorb these nutrients are:

• Surgical patients that have had part of their bowel(s) removed
• Diabetic patients taking the drug Metformin
• Followers of a strict Vegan diet
• People who are long term antacid takers for heartburn

Take the next step

In closing, it is not uncommon to feel tired and sluggish from time to time. Often, a miserable night’s sleep will make us feel that way the next day. However, if you are experiencing these symptoms regularly and fall into any (many) of these groups who have absorption issues, then it is time to see a doctor. Dr. David Nazarian is a specialist in treating vitamin deficiencies, and through a series of blood tests, nutritional evaluation, and a thorough physical exam, there is a high probability you will be feeling like your old self again. Remember, ignoring these symptoms will only make the problem worse in the long run.
