While modern Intravenous(IV) therapy didn’t begin to fully develop until the 19th century, versions of transfusion treatments have been documented as early as the middle ages. While many of those treatments proved unsuccessful, they opened the door for future discoveries. One such discovery was by Dr. Thomas Latta who, in his studies on cholera, discovered that injecting saltwater into the bloodstream could help fight the disease.

Since then, IV therapy has become a regular and frequent practice in the medical community. As a means to rejuvenate the body, John Myers developed a combination of vitamins and minerals that act quickly as a jumpstart for the body that can alleviate the effects of many different ailments. Being able to inject these therapies allows medical professionals to help the body reach levels of concentration not attainable otherwise.

Injection also allows for a high absorption rate for the vitamins and minerals. IV therapy is not only beneficial as a treatment for specific illnesses but it can also help with overall health. For many, IV vitamin therapy is helpful in decreasing stress, strengthening the immune system, and counteracting things that we may not even be aware of like dehydration, malnutrition, or other things that may develop from busy lifestyles and vitamin-deficient diets.

While all of the population can benefit from these IV vitamin therapies, patients with chronic illnesses have also seen incredible improvements in treatment. No matter the illness, IV therapies have made it possible for the body to directly receive those nutrients into the bloodstream, ensuring that the therapies are not dependent on the digestive system. This makes them more accessible across the board for those with digestive issues.

For patients with symptoms of chronic fatigue, IV therapy can help to rejuvenate and reset the body. Studies have also shown that vitamin C infusions can massively improve the lives of cancer patients.  According to DripAZ.com, many people even use IV’s for getting over hangovers in Vegas.

With nearly a century of positive results, IV therapy has proven to be an incredibly effective means of revitalizing the body and combating different illnesses. As more and more healthcare professionals begin to advocate for this, patients across the board will begin to reap the benefits and effectiveness of IV therapy.
