NAD is an emerging IV vitamin therapy that is all-natural, holistic and has demonstrated outstanding results in numerous studies. When NAD is administered via the intravenous (IV) route, it goes straight into the bloodstream and will give you a faster and more effective outcome because it skips the body’s natural breakdown process. This allows for better absorption into the body and less work for the body. IV therapy is the MOST efficient and effective way to supplement NAD and vitamin levels in the body. NAD therapy may be the light at the end of the tunnel for many individuals suffering from addiction, age-related disease, and chronic fatigue. The high, natural dose will quickly optimize a person’s NAD levels, which revs up the engine in your cells (mitochondrion) and translates into more energy for your body. This IV therapy can last from 3 to 15 days, depending on an individual’s condition, their body, and goals. This IV therapy is typically tailored to meet an individual’s needs, so it is essential to work with qualified specialists to determine and design your treatment plan.
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain that is typically accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory, and mood imbalance issues. The pathophysiology behind Fibromyalgia most likely relates to changes in the central processing system for pain signals, such that peripheral pain signals are amplified, leading to an enhanced sensation of pain. Fibromyalgia is very difficult to diagnosis due to the vast array of symptoms that are characterized by this condition. Fibromyalgia affects over 5 million individuals of both sexes, although women are far more likely to develop Fibromyalgia. According to the National Institute of Health, “between 80 and 90 percent of people who receive this diagnosis are women.” Most women with Fibromyalgia are between the ages of 40 to 55 years, and symptoms may feel worse in women that are postmenopausal or experiencing menopause. When women enter menopause, the body produces 40 percent less estrogen. Estrogen is a huge factor in controlling serotonin, which helps manage pain and mood imbalances.
Fibromyalgia pain varies by each individual and occurs at different levels of intensity. Many individuals complain of pain that is often described as deep or a dull ache that begins in the muscles and radiates to other areas of the body. Some individuals have complained of pain that is more consistent with sharp pins and needles sensation. This pain typically occurs during intense “flare-ups.” Men and women do experience fibromyalgia pain differently. Both have reported experiencing extreme levels of pain, women tend to have higher levels of pain that are most likely contributed to decreased estrogen levels, which will reduce a woman’s pain tolerance over time.
Common tender points associated with Fibromyalgia:
- Back of the head
- Area between the shoulder blades
- Front of the neck
- Top of the chest
- Outside of the elbows
- Tops and sides of the hips
- Inside of the knees
- Ankle, wrist, and finger joints
A study published by Oxford University said, “the occurrences of depression in men and women who have Fibromyalgia is significantly higher in men.” Fibromyalgia typically causes decreased or lack of quality sleep, restless leg syndrome, sleep apnea, bowel issues (IBS), fatigue, depression, and lack of concentration. It is also more common in individuals who have immune system disorders such as Lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis, and Multiple sclerosis.
There is no cure for Fibromyalgia, but treatments are available. Individuals can manage their pain and live a happy, healthy, and active lifestyle. Some individuals manage their pain with over-the-counter pain relievers, such as Tylenol, ibuprofen, and naproxen sodium. Some of the commonly prescribed drugs consist of duloxetine (Cymbalta), gabapentin for nerve pain (Neurontin, Gralise), and pregabalin (Lyrica).
A new way of treating Fibromyalgia is with intravenous (IV) vitamins and nutrients. When individuals are experiencing bowel issues, they are unable to absorb the proper nutrients required to function normally. By increasing the body’s ability to absorb several essential vitamins and minerals, the body will be able to work at a better capacity, which will decrease the effects of fibromyalgia pain.
VIP Total Health and Hydration offer a Fibromyalgia Infusion that can be tailored to fit the needs of our clientele. Magnesium is a crucial component to naturally reducing muscle pain, helps to maintain normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy immune system, regulates blood sugar levels, and blood pressure. Glutathione is a component that helps fight infections because it has a direct anti-bacterial effect, as it helps a cell of the immune system in fighting the bacterium. Zinc is another additive that could be helpful because zinc keeps the immune system healthy and supports normal growth. We typically always add a multi-vitamin to our infusions because appropriate vitamin levels are essential for everyday function. We can also add anti-inflammatories to most infusions to help regulate pain levels.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is a method of natural healing that most individuals choose to compliment alternative health care with acute and chronic conditions. Many individuals visit a chiropractor to relieve lower back pain, sciatica, neck pain, whiplash, or chronic headaches. Chiropractors view a client as a whole person and not the sum of their parts or pain. A Chiropractor will work in partnership with you to ensure your optimal health and wellness can be achieved. Chiropractors can recognize that many factors affect an individual’s health, including proper exercise, nutrition, sleep, environment, and hereditary conditions. Chiropractic care focuses on maintaining a person’s health naturally by treating areas of pain or other areas that could be triggering that discomfort.
A broad range of techniques are used to locate, analyze, and gently correct vertebral and extremity misalignments. Chiropractors may use manual adjustments, electrical muscular stimulation, muscle release therapy, cryotherapy, IV hydration, or refer you for a targeted massage. Chiropractic care is a natural method of healing that stimulates the body’s communication system to work more efficiently to initiate, control, and coordinate the various functions of the cells, organs, and systems of the body.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care:
- Compliments other relief and treatment options – such as IV therapy, Cryotherapy, Massage therapy, etc…
- Personalized treatment programs
- Low-risk form of treatment
- Helps the entire Musculoskeletal and Nervous system
- Helps prevent joint dysfunction
- Provides pain relief for chemotherapy and cancer patients
- Has been known to help with headaches, GI issues, fertility issues, menstrual discomfort, and ear infections
- Treatment at the source of symptoms
Chiropractic care in conjunction with IV therapy can be a very powerful tool.
Benefits of Cryotherapy
When we subject our bodies to ice-cold temperatures, they will naturally go into a “flight or fight” response that is meant to keep us freezing. As the cryotherapy environment exposes our skin to super cold temperatures, our bodies will go into survival mode, during which, the body will naturally increase blood supply to your vital organs to increase oxygen and nutrient levels. Once you leave the super cold Cryo environment, the enriched and less toxic blood is flushed back into the rest of the body.
Where does cryotherapy help?
How Does Cryotherapy Aid In Recovery?
The brief freeze activates collagen in the skin and, improving skin elasticity, skin tone, and reducing cellulite. The constriction of blood vessels followed by stepping out of the Cryo chamber is critical because it flushes out toxins immediately. Cryotherapy treatment is beneficial because it boosts endorphins and speeds up metabolism for several hours following the treatment burning 500-800 calories per session. This number can increase over time with regular Cryo treatments. With increased and consistent cryotherapy treatments the benefits will continue to improve.
According to US Cryotherapy studies, the benefits of cryotherapy treatment include:
- Burn 500-800 Calories
- Minimize Stretch Marks
- Tighter, Smoother Skin
- Reduce Cellulite
- Improve Skin Conditions (acne, eczema, psoriasis, etc.)
