Illness - Throughout the course of a common cold, sinus infection or the flu, the body’s requirement for nutrients is significantly increased. The associated loss of appetite during this time decreases oral intake of essential micronutrients and subsequently reduces the immune system’s ability to fight back. By introducing these critical vitamins and minerals into the bloodstream at high dosages, they are 100% available to combat any illness lurking in your system.
Extensive Exercise - Hey all you crazy athletes out there! Heavy exercise results in a faster metabolism which greatly increases the body’s vitamin and mineral usage and requirements. Supplementation is then necessary for the maintenance of adequate body tissue and higher need/production of red blood cells. When we sweat, we lose essential minerals, electrolytes and water that can easily be replaced intravenously. Water is an essential component of our makeup and something that athletes don’t always focus on enough. It is stored with glycogen in our muscles, so without the proper amount of water we are unable to store energy. Water also helps regulate our body temperature, determines the viscosity of our blood, regulates toxins and keeps our skin healthy.
Altitude Sickness/Jet Lag - Acute Mountain Sickness or Altitude Sickness frequently occurs at altitudes 7,000 feet and above (Park City, UT- 7,000-10,000 ft.). Early symptoms include nausea/vomiting, headache, sleep disturbances, fatigue and dizziness. These symptoms are easily treated with IV vitamin and oxygen therapy. Don’t forget, we can also bring these treatments right to your hotel room if you aren’t feeling well enough to get out.
Almost all of the body’s processes have a rhythm, or pattern, that varies over the course of a day. When these patterns are disrupted due to a long flight or change of time zone, symptoms such as extreme fatigue, sleep disturbances, loss of concentration, disorientation, GI upset and loss of appetite can occur. The Vitamin Bar combines energy producing B complex vitamins with hydration and oxygen therapy to counteract many of these upsetting symptoms.
Hangover - One of the easiest things to ‘cure’ with IV therapy, common hangover symptoms such as headache, upset stomach, nausea, vomiting and dizziness are essentially gone after an hour with The Vitamin Bar. As your cells are being rehydrate with fluid and electrolytes, we will quickly relieve these uncomfortable symptoms with anti-inflammatory and anti-nausea medications. There is no need to sweat it out without us!
Stress - Unfortunately stress is a common theme among most American lifestyles, and as stated by the National Institute of Health, affects over 40 million adults today. Stressors, whether psychological, environmental or physiological are increasingly hard on the body and because of the rapid depletion of crucial vitamins, eventually result in noticeable symptoms such as fatigue, restlessness, changes in appetite and even illness. Most of us cope by pushing the stress to the side and using caffeine, sugar, cigarettes and/or alcohol to mask or compensate for the uncomfortable side effects. These coping mechanisms often lead to significant weight gain or loss, hypertension, digestion and blood sugar issues.
Spa Procedures - Until lately we have only been able to focus on rejuvenating our skin from the outside in using procedures such as microdermabrasion, harsh laser and chemical peels, micro needling and topical treatments. With the amazing advances in IV vitamin therapy, we can now complement those procedures by treating your skin from the inside out. Using the key nutrients for collagen synthesis, cell rejuvenation and healing such as Vitamins C, E and Zinc, The Vitamin Bar’s custom cocktails significantly improve results. Trust us, we’ve seen it!
Surgery - If you are contemplating surgery, listen up! Much like major trauma, surgery is one of the biggest stressors on the body. The task of wound healing greatly increases the body’s metabolism and therefore requires higher volumes of vitamins and minerals such as Zinc and Vitamin C. Through their immune system enhancement and collagen building abilities, these specific micronutrients are the key building blocks for cell recovery and regrowth and could not be more influential in the healing process. Like surgery, anesthesia for any period of time, produces a plethora of free radicals that can be eliminated through the added antioxidant Glutathione found in our customized pre and post-operative drip. Don’t even think about having surgery without this!
Malabsorption - The intestine is the primary site of absorption for most nutrients. Between gastrointestinal disorders like IBS or Crohn’s Disease, bariatric surgery and loss of ‘good bacteria’ due to antibiotic use, many people suffer from an inability to adequately absorb vitamins and minerals. This can lead to many problems such as decreased energy, low electrolyte levels, frequent illness and anemia. When vitamins and minerals are given intravenously, they bypass the problems associated with the GI tract and are able to be fully absorbed by the tissues.
Morning Sickness - Sick ladies, can you hear us?! The Vitamin Bar has a drip specifically for you and your little one that is causing all of the drama. We will replenish your depleted fluid volumes, electrolyte levels and relieve your nausea with medication that is safe for you and your baby.
