Do you find yourself mentally exhausted despite getting the recommended hours of sleep? Do you experience chronic joint and muscular discomfort? You may be affected by Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). There is no concrete explanation for the cause of CFS but more Canadians suffer from it than you may think. Approximately 580,000 Canadians of all age groups suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome according to the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. What are the symptoms of CFS?
The most common symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome include:
- Extreme Fatigue
- Joint and/or Muscular Discomfort
- Nausea After Strenuous Labour
- Swollen Glands
- Sore Throat
- Poor Concentration and/or Memory
Any Canadian who is battling Chronic Fatigue Syndrome knows that their day-to-day is severely hindered. Work, physical exercise, social life, and more can all contribute to higher than average stress levels due to overt exhaustion.
Most Canadian health experts agree that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can stem from:
- Hormone Imbalances
- Viral and/or Bacteria Infections
- Poor Immune Health
So how does IV Vitamin Therapy aid in combating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? Let’s find out.
#1. Customized Treatments for Your Deficiencies
There is a range of vitamins and nutrients that can be administered to help ease the effect symptoms have on your day-to-day life. As a naturopathic doctor, it is my responsibility to understand and highlight the specific deficiencies that exist within your body and use this to create a unique treatment. IV Vitamin Therapy can administer a variety of ingredients including Vitamin C, Vitamin B5, B6, and B12, Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, and much more. All of these ingredients have a specific role in aiding with Chronic Fatigue symptoms experienced.
#2. Preventative Therapy, Not Reactive Medicine
Most modern medical treatments are administered as a reaction to a condition once it has been diagnosed. This differs from preventative naturopathic treatment and IV Vitamin Therapy. IV Vitamin Therapy gives the body the proper minerals and vitamins to build an effective immune system and fight off potential harmful conditions before they even happen.
#3. 100% Nutrient Absorption
When we ingest vitamins and minerals in a traditional format (ingestion) a large percentage is lost in the digestive tract before it can be absorbed by the body. The body is only able to absorb at most 50% of the intended quantity of vitamins or minerals when ingested. IV Vitamin Therapy bypasses the digestive tract and allows the patient to obtain 100% absorption directly into the bloodstream. This is what makes IV Vitamin Therapy such an efficient treatment.
#4. Improve Your Overall Health
Building off of reason #2, IV Vitamin Therapy is a preventative therapy rather than a reactionary measure. It provides your body with the correct vitamins and minerals you require to achieve homeostasis. My number one goal with every patient is to treat the entire person and not just their symptoms. Therefore, IV Vitamin Therapy will play a role in treating the root cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and improving your body’s ability to fight the symptoms experienced.
#5. IV Vitamin Therapy is Safe
To administer IV Vitamin Therapy, Canadian naturopathic doctors must obtain a separate license specific to the treatment. The government of Ontario ensures that all NDs have the highest level of training and knowledge in administering IV Vitamin Therapy. Naturopathic doctors have the experience required to administer a successful treatment for your needs as a patient. If you have questions or concerns with any step of the IV Vitamin Therapy process, please don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation.
