Intravenous therapy (abbreviated as IV therapy) is a medical procedure where fluids, nutrients, and medications are directly delivered into a person's vein. It's commonly utilized to rehydrate individuals or to provide nutrients to those who cannot or refuse to consume food or water orally, particularly due to impaired mental states. Additionally, it's used to administer medical therapy, such as blood products or electrolytes, to correct imbalances.
At Wei Aesthetics, we offer two main types of IV treatments: the Modified Myer’s, which is an IV push, and the Myer’s Cocktail, which is an IV infusion. We also have options to include Glutathione in all of our IV treatments.
The Myers Cocktail is a solution of essential vitamins utilized for intravenous micronutrient therapy (IVMT). Originally created in the 1960s to alleviate symptoms of chronic pain, fatigue, and migraines, it has since been found to have broader benefits beyond these conditions. Nowadays, it's widely recognized as the premier option for IV vitamin infusion treatments.
Glutathione is a natural peptide that can be found in every cell of the human body, including immune cells. It consists of three essential amino acids, namely cysteine, glutamate, and glycine, and is commonly referred to as the "master detoxifier" due to its remarkable ability to promote skin health, overall well-being, and body function. While glutathione is naturally present in the body, Remedy Pain Solutions offers IV infusion therapies to increase its levels and promote patients' overall health.
