This is installment #9 of our “14 Proven Benefits of IV Therapy” Series.
Obesity is at epidemic proportions in the United States and per the CDC affects almost 100 million Americans. Obesity related conditions include heart disease, diabetes, stroke and even certain types of cancers. The estimated annual medical cost is approximately 150 billion dollars. There are certainly genetic predispositions, overeating, medications, thyroid disorders and socioeconomic status issues that can contribute towards its propensity. There is also significant data that weight loss can reduce, and in some cases, totally reverse disease states.
Symptoms of obesity can include:
- Joint Pain
- Shortness of breath
- Sleep issues
Psychological DisordersIV therapy can help balance electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals which are often negatively impacted by poor nutrition choices. As these nutritional deficiencies are replenished, it will become easier for weight reduction. Furthermore, replacing B vitamins, whether given IV or IM can provide much needed energy and help improve metabolism and mental clarity, particularly as one is trying to lose weight.
