Not feeling like yourself lately? Tired, achy, lethargic, but on the flip side, can’t get a good night’s sleep? If you’ve been under a lot of stress lately, you may be suffering from adrenal fatigue, a common condition brought on by long-term physical, mental or emotional stress. And while we here at Nore can’t help with your busy schedule, we can offer IV therapy for adrenal fatigue and our patients see phenomenal results.
What is adrenal fatigue?
Adrenal fatigue is a non-specific diagnosis that refers to a collection of symptoms such as fatigue, body aches, unexplained weight loss, hair loss, mental fog, and sleep disturbances that have no other visible explanation.
Adrenal fatigue is thought to be caused by the adrenal glands not being able to keep up with the ongoing “fight or flight” response to chronic stress. During stressful situations, healthy adrenal glands pump cortisol into the body to help you prepare to fight or flee from a dangerous situation. But if your lifestyle is chronically stressful, pumping out all that cortisol day after day essentially wears your adrenal glands down, and they no longer respond to stress like they used to.
The resulting lower level of adrenal hormones is usually not detectible in a blood test unless you’re experiencing severe adrenal insufficiency. But that doesn’t mean your body can’t tell the difference. Your relentless fatigue (so much so that you are dependent on caffeine to get you through the day), unexplained body aches, insomnia, hair loss, and mental fogginess are all a result of your adrenal glands not functioning as they should.
Your adrenal glands are exhausted, and so are you.
Who gets adrenal fatigue?
If you feel regularly, and consistently overwhelmed, you may be at risk for adrenal fatigue. People who are likely to get adrenal fatigue include single parents, shift workers, people with high-stress jobs, working students, caregivers, and others whose life leaves them feeling “tapped out” more often than not.
How IV vitamin therapy helps patients with adrenal fatigue
There are multiple ways that IV vitamin therapy helps patients recover from the vitality-robbing effects of adrenal fatigue.
First, you must remember that adrenal fatigue is caused by prolonged stress. If you’re living an overwhelmingly stressful existence, chances are, things that keep you healthy like eating right and exercising have possibly fallen by the wayside. We all only have so much time and energy in the day! More than likely, if you’re suffering from adrenal fatigue, your overall nutritional health has probably taken a hit, too.
Second, beat-up, worn-out adrenal glands need your body at its tip-top shape for the fastest healing. Just like any other injury or illness, the better shape your body is in, the faster and more complete your illness will heal. The same goes for the healing of your adrenal glands.
IV vitamin therapy addresses both of those concerns. By instantly delivering the right combination of vitamins directly into your bloodstream, IV vitamin therapy jumpstarts the process of restoring your nutritional health at your very first session. We do recommend most patients undergo at least four treatments to see the full beneficial effects of IV vitamin therapy.
Also, this injection of critical vitamins increases your body’s overall health and healing potential by giving your body the building blocks it needs to repair damaged cells. These building blocks are key to healing your overworked adrenal glands.
What you’ll experience at your IV vitamin therapy appointment
Our IV vitamin therapy for adrenal fatigue starts with administering a micronutrient test. This way, we know exactly what vitamins your body is lacking and if you have any specific nutritional deficiencies that can be addressed in your therapy. We will discuss your symptoms with you and create a personal vitamin infusion crafted just for you.
At your IV therapy appointment, you’ll be seated in a comfortable reclining chair while your personal vitamin cocktail is slowly dripped directly into your bloodstream. Other than a quick pinch when we first insert the IV needle, the entire vitamin therapy session is completely painless. You’ll relax in our serene vitamin IV room for between 15 to 60 minutes. Catch up on some reading, answer emails, or just take a nap and let our IV vitamin therapy work it’s magic. Most patients report feeling the positive effects of IV vitamin therapy in a couple hours.
Benefits of vitamin therapy for adrenal fatigue
It’s not just patients who are suffering from adrenal fatigue that benefit from IV vitamin therapy. IV vitamin therapy has been shown to improve immune function, boost the body’s natural healing response, and of course reverse vitamin deficiencies that are the underlying cause of a number of troublesome health issues.
IV vitamin therapy is often recommended for:
- Adrenal fatigue
- Stress and burnout
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Viral and bacterial illnesses
- Parkinson’s disease
- Migraines & tension headaches
- Macular degeneration
- Chronic disease
How is IV vitamin therapy different from taking regular OTC vitamins for fatigue?
When you ingest vitamins orally, the pills are broken down in your stomach and digestive tract, and you only absorb about 50% of the dosage listed on the bottle. With IV Vitamin therapy, the vitamins are delivered straight into your circulatory system, where they are absorbed at about a 90% rate. Plus, we only administer IV vitamins that adhere to the highest quality control standards. Those bottles of vitamins you buy on the drug store shelf … well, who knows.
Added benefit of IV vitamin therapy
In addition to delivering a powerful cocktail of necessary vitamins directly into your bloodstream, IV vitamin therapy is also powerfully hydrating. The IV vitamins are suspended in a saline solution which instantly hydrates your entire body – skin, eyes and internal organs. All the benefits of “staying hydrated” such as firmer skin, brighter eyes, and more energy are an extra added benefit of IV vitamin therapy!
