The Complete Guide to Detox IV Therapy

Introduction: What is detox IV therapy?

Detox IV is a form of therapy, which uses an IV drip to deliver a combination of nutrients to cleanse the body, remove toxins and boost health. IV therapy is a term used to describe treatment administered via a drip. It is a fast, effective way to provide key vitamins, minerals and amino acids and offers an alternative to oral tablets and supplements.

Detox IV therapy is designed to support full-body detoxification.

Detoxing has become increasingly popular in recent years, but it is not a modern trend or practice. References to detoxing date back to ancient civilizations. Today, detoxification may look very different, but the aims are similar: to boost health and well-being, reduce the risk of health issues and ensure the efficient removal of toxins.

How Detoxing works?

Your body is an incredible collection of organs, chemicals and systems, which completes a staggering range of functions every single second. Detoxing is one of the most important processes the body undertakes. When you consume food and drinks, your body leaps into action to break down foods. This enables the absorption of nutrients and vitamins and minerals and facilitates the removal of waste products and toxins. Once you have removed goodness from foods and drinks, your liver processes the remnants, acting as a filter.

In most cases, the liver functions effectively to minimize the impact of toxins and remove harmful substances from the body. Sometimes, however, it can falter. If the liver is overwhelmed, or health complications or diseases impact liver function, toxins can build up.

If you choose to have IV detox, your body has rapid access to essential minerals, vitamins and amino acids to remove toxins more efficiently and reduce stress on the body.

Symptoms of toxin build-up include:
  • Tiredness
  • Skin problems
  • Muscle and joint aches and pains
  • Nausea

What is Glutathione-based detox therapy?

At Chicago Weight Loss Clinic, we offer Glutathione-based detox IV therapy. This is a form of Detox IV therapy, which provides the body with glutathione, a powerful antioxidant, which works to undo and remedy the damage caused by toxins within the body.

Glutathione is produced naturally by the body and it contains three amino acids: glycine, glutamine and cysteine. These amino acids are responsible for collecting free radicals so that the body can neutralize or remove them.

Most people are able to generate sufficient levels of glutathione, but in some cases, levels of this potent antioxidant plunge and the body uses it faster than it can produce it. If you are deficient in glutathione, this can have far-ranging implications for your health.

Benefits of glutathione based Detox IV therapy

Glutathione-based detox therapy is a fast, effective way to boost Glutathione levels. The benefits of this form of detox therapy include:

  1. Boosting immunity
    Glutathione-based detox therapy boosts immunity and helps the body to fight illnesses and infections. This type of treatment is particularly beneficial for protecting the body because it helps to control the behavior of the white blood cells.
  2. Easing inflammation Inflammation is a tell-tale sign that the body is under attack. Inflammation is a side-effect of injuries and acute health problems, as well as all chronic diseases and conditions ranging from heart disease to diabetes. Glutathione is actively involved in reducing inflammation to ease symptoms.
  3. Preventing oxidative stress
    Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants. Glutathione IV therapy can help to prevent oxidative stress, lowering the risk of DNA damage and abnormal cell function.
  4. Improving sleep quality
    Studies show that up to 70 million US adults experience sleep troubles. High levels of glutathione enhance sleep quality. Good quality sleep is essential for optimum physical and mental health.
  5. Increasing energy levels
    Glutathione can help to increase energy levels by protecting the cell mitochondria to enhance energy production.

Why is IV detox therapy more effective than other methods?
IV therapy offers multiple advantages over other methods, including:

● Fast results: IV detox therapy delivers rapid results, providing swift access to essential nutrients.
● Flexibility: you can choose when to make an appointment and how often to have therapy based on your schedule and your personal preferences and requirements.
● Improved absorption: taking supplements can be beneficial for your health, but tablets can be problematic for some people. If you can’t absorb oral tablets, IV therapy provides an effective alternative.
● Time out: most of us crave some time out of our hectic schedules. IV detox therapy enables you to take a break to relax and unwind.
