Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy is a method of administering vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream. Nowadays, receiving IV vitamin therapy has become an increasingly popular trend, especially among celebrities. A good deal of health clinic recommends IV therapy for healing various diseases such as hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (CPOD), asthma, fibromyalgia (widespread pain), chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, hepatitis, depression, Parkinson disease, and macular degeneration.
Here, in Indonesia, many medical clinics provide vitamin injection to boost energy levels and stimulate the immune system, as well as help with stress, jetlag, and sleep problems.
For example, in Bali, many patients need IV therapy to cure Bali Belly. Bali Belly is a term that is common among international tourists. Bali Belly is a kind of disease caused by bacteria, parasites, and viruses, which causes stomach pain.
This disease also carries several problems to the body, such as nausea, abdominal bloating, cramps and pain, fever, headaches, and lack of energy. That’s why many travelers who visited Bali usually enter “clinic near me”, or “Iv vitamin therapy in Bali” in search of their cellphones.
Does it have any health benefits?
IV nutrient therapy has been reported as more effective and better tolerated than conventional medical therapies for conditions such as asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergic rhinitis, cardiovascular disease, and other disorders.
The nutrients in each injection of IV vitamins are useful for patients who are too sick to eat or in the treatment period. But, the requirement for such infusions and the amount given needs to be carefully and monitored by an appropriate blood test. Nutrient injections are vital helping to keep people alive or to correct the adverse effects of malnutrition.
Is there any risk?
There are several specific requirements there are applied in this therapy method. According to BBC News, there was a fatal accident in the application of this clinical method. A 51-year-old woman from China nearly died after blending 20 different fruit to create a homemade IV drip.
She thought fresh fruit would give vitamins benefit for health. Without hesitation, she created an IV drip formula for her self. Instead, she suffers a fever and itchiness and was taken into intensive care with multiple organ damage.
This is just an example, but she may have been inspired by other people because of the growing trend for IV vitamins. Celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Cara Delevingne and Chrissy Teigen have taken part in the growing trend.
This case is compounded by many beauty salons also provide this therapy. One thing you should know before doing this therapy, this method must have strict clinical standards. So, how to avoid the risk?
