Why Try IV Therapy?
Clients always ask us questions such as, “Why is IV therapy necessary?” and “Why can’t I just drink more water to get the nutrients I need?”
Let us tell you why…
Our bodies are already 55% – 65% water depending on our age and size. After losing just 1% of our body’s water, our mental and physical performance starts to deteriorate. After losing 2%-3%, we start to feel thirsty and dehydrated. So hydration is crucial just to get us through every day tasks.
What a lot of people don’t know is that water also acts as our own personal bodyguard. It protects our body tissues against any blows when we are active. Water also enhances the function of nerve cells and protects them from thousands of chemical reactions. Additionally, it helps in the smooth movement of our joints and allows their surfaces to slide and glide with minimal friction. Without water, movement of any joint becomes stiff and painful.
