Health Boosters of the Future: IV Vitamin Drips

Source: The Globe and Mail (Summary by NIM)

If you're a run-down workaholic, celeb or athlete and simply don't have the time to recover and recuperate the 'normal' way (i.e. sleeping, being active and eating well), there may still be some hope for you, thanks to a new trend in health and wellness.

The use of Intravenous micronutrient therapy (IVMT), a system by which (as the name suggests), micronutrients are streamed into the body intravenously, is not actually new in and of itself. This therapeutic treatment has been around for decades to treat certain illnesses and ailments like asthma and fibromyalgia. Now, however, it's being offered in cushy relaxing settings in order for workaholics to relax and wake up feeling like a million bucks in the morning.

The main benefit of this treatment is that the vitamins and minerals are streamed right into your veins and are absorbed highly efficiently. Some patrons claim they are left with a profound sense of well being and glowing, radiant skin, akin to having gone on a relaxing week long vacation! If the price is right for you, you too can lounge in a leather recliner while watching your favourite TV shows or movies or even take a nap while being fed intravenously with a complex micronutrient cocktail!
