IV Infusion Therapy
At Meliora Integrative Medicine, in Evanston, IL, we offer IV therapy treatments for patients who want to improve and optimize their health or address certain medical conditions and symptoms. This treatment process is quick and painless and delivers numerous health and wellness benefits that do more than just resolve symptoms. Dr. Rowena Chua customizes each treatment plan according to our patient’s needs to hydrate the body, increase energy levels, and support the immune system.
IV Infusion Therapy
IV therapy is a health and wellness treatment that uses an IV delivery system to give the body hydrating fluids, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. These IV treatments flow directly into the bloodstream to promote overall health and wellness. Even if you take a daily vitamin and eat a healthy diet, your body can still suffer from deficiencies for various reasons.
These deficiencies can show up as dehydration, a weakened immune system, poor quality skin, nails, and hair, poor recovery after workouts, stress, and low energy levels. The right IV therapy treatment can give your body the hydration and nutrients it needs to eliminate negative symptoms, increase energy levels, and help you optimize your overall health.
How It Works
The treatment process begins with an initial consultation. Once we learn more about any symptoms you’re dealing with, the current state of your health, and your health and wellness goals, we can customize your treatment plan accordingly. We will give you more details about our IV treatments and then choose which combination of fluids, vitamins, and minerals will best meet your needs.
What to Expect
Once we design your treatment plan, we can schedule your first treatment. When you arrive, we will insert begin the intravenous treatment, and your customized IV will slowly drip into your bloodstream. Treatments can take 60 minutes or less; once they are over, you can resume your normal daily activities. Most patients begin to notice results within the first few days of the treatment.
We can give you more details about what you can expect from your unique treatment at your consultation. Depending on your health and wellness concerns, you may benefit from a treatment plan that includes several sessions.
What It Treats
IV therapy is a versatile treatment that can address a number of different health and wellness concerns. The right combination of vitamins and minerals can target various symptoms and improve overall health. From treating dehydration to improving the skin, we can design a treatment plan that meets your specific needs.
Strengthening the Immune System
Even if you take a daily vitamin for immune support, your body will never be able to use 100% of the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in that vitamin because it has to pass through the gastrointestinal tract, where much is broken down and eliminated as waste. This treatment will strengthen your immune system by delivering 100% of the vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and hydrating fluids directly into your bloodstream.
None will be eliminated as waste, but instead will begin working to strengthen your system. A strong immune system is key to fighting off viruses and illnesses, and with regular IV therapy treatments, you can invest in your immune health and build a strong system.
Hydrating the Body
Different factors can contribute to dehydration, and many dehydrated people don’t even realize it. Excess caffeine, alcohol consumption, insufficient water consumption, stress, illness, traveling, and other conditions can all contribute to dehydration. IV therapy treatments can treat dehydration and deliver hydrating fluids directly into the body to restore optimal health and wellness.
Increasing Energy Levels
If you’re suffering from low energy levels, whether you’re on a weight management plan or simply suffering from a deficiency, we can create an IV treatment plan specifically to boost your energy so that you have what you need to get through the day and complete everything you need to with energy to spare.
IV treatments can also help improve recovery after workouts. Whether you’re training for a race or competition or have simply begun an exercise routine to promote your health, we can use this treatment to speed your recovery after workouts and promote muscle health and hydration.
Promoting Healthy Hair, Skin, and Nails
If you want to achieve healthier-looking hair, skin, and nails, topical products will work, but you also need to take an inside-out approach to your health. We can use this treatment process to give your body the nutrients it needs so that you can achieve the healthiest hair, skin, and nails and maintain a youthful glow long-term.
