Affecting more than 3 million people, anemia is the most common blood disorder in the United States. If you’re anemic, you don’t have enough red blood cells to carry iron-rich proteins, called hemoglobins, through your body. As a result, you may suffer from a variety of unpleasant symptoms.
Fortunately, the naturopathic and integrative medicine physicians at Concierge IV Nutrition in Beverly Hills, California, offer a safe and effective way to boost iron-deficient blood and reduce symptoms. Here’s what you need to know about the benefits of iron IV therapy.
IV infusions 101: Improving health and wellness
Intravenous (IV) infusion therapy offers numerous benefits for several types of health concerns, including anemia.
IV infusions mean that vitamins, minerals, and fluids are delivered directly into your bloodstream. With IV therapy, you don’t have to wait for your body to digest a pill so you can absorb the nutrients. Instead, they bypass your stomach and go right into your bloodstream so you can receive the maximum health benefits as quickly as possible.
Aside from iron IV therapy, some of the common IV infusions we offer include:
- High dose vitamin C
- Myers’ cocktail
- Weight loss
We recommend and customize IV infusions based on your medical needs and conditions for a natural way to boost your health and well-being. And when it comes to anemia, an iron-rich IV infusion is an easy way to get the nutrients your body is lacking without having to take pills or receive a painful injection.
The benefits of an iron IV infusion
If you’re anemic, iron IV therapy offers a more immediate solution than medications, oral supplements, and dietary changes.
For many, replenishing iron intravenously also means fewer digestive problems. Some iron supplements can be hard on your stomach. If you suffer from gastrointestinal problems, such as inflammatory bowel disease, IV iron infusions mean you don’t endure the consequences of an oral iron supplement that upsets your GI tract.
An iron infusion can provide the immediate benefits of increased energy, easier breathing, and better concentration. Depending on your individual needs, our doctors may recommend a series of iron IV infusions over the course of a few weeks to boost your iron levels and greatly reduce iron deficiency symptoms, including:
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain
- Cold hands and feet
- Pale skin
When administered in our office under the supervision of our naturopathic medical team, IV therapy is a safe, effective way to get the iron you need and combat anemia. If you’re looking for a way to increase the iron levels in your blood, feel more energetic, and avoid taking multiple supplements every day, iron IV therapy is an ideal solution.
