IV Therapy vs Oral Supplements

Most people understand the importance of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in our bodies. Our bodies require adequate amounts of essential nutrients to function properly. However, we must supplement our bodies with those essential nutrients to ensure that everything returns to normal in some cases.
There are two ways to deliver those supplements to our bodies, and the traditional way to get our nutrients through the oral route is one of them. Intravenous (IV) therapy, an unconventional but more effective method, is used to deliver nutrients directly into our bloodstream. But which is superior? Let us investigate.

What Is IV Therapy?
Intravenous therapy, commonly known as IV therapy, delivers required nutrients to our bodies by injecting them directly into the veins. This makes it significantly more effective than taking the medication orally.
When nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream, the results are visible almost immediately.

Difference Between IV therapy And Oral Supplements
The primary and most noticeable distinction is how nutrients are delivered to the body.
Oral supplements can be consumed orally in the form of liquids, tablets, and even capsules, and all that is required is that the supplements be swallowed. On the contrary, in IV therapy, nutrients are delivered to the body via needles inserted into our veins, allowing the nutrients to enter our bloodstream directly. This way, one can ensure that the body properly absorbs the nutrients.

Why Choose IV Therapy Over Oral Supplements?

Absorption: Certain oral supplements and specific vitamins may pass through our bodies without the body absorbing any of the nutrients,
However, IV therapy ensures that our bodies can absorb cent percent of all nutrients delivered to the body.
Avoiding The Side Effects of Oral Supplements: When we consume oral supplements, they travel through our entire digestive system, and it may increase the chances of irritating different parts of the digestive tract. IV therapy helps us absorb all the nutrients directly without disturbing the digestive system or irritating the stomach.

Customized Treatment:
We can seamlessly tailor the right combination of medication, fluids, and nutrients with IV therapy to address the body’s specific health needs. On the other hand, the conventional oral supplement does not allow this.
Fluids are, without a doubt, the foundation of any drip. But, aside from being an efficient method of delivering nutrients, IV therapy can hydrate our bodies far more efficiently than simply drinking water.

IV Therapy for Migraines and Headache

How can IV therapy stop migraine & chronic headaches?

Learning to avoid triggers and prevent episodes is key for those who suffer from migraines. But at times, despite your best efforts, a migraine can occur anyway.

The pain, nausea, and sensitivity to sound and light can disable you entirely, preventing you from participating in your everyday life for days or even weeks.

Thankfully, advancements in migraine treatment options have answered that so many migraine sufferers have been looking for: fast and effective migraine relief with IV hydration therapy.

IV hydration therapy, also known as migraine IV treatments or migraine IV cocktails, provides migraine relief with the infusion of electrolytes, hydration, and vitamins directly into the blood. The established IV infusion therapy offers quick and more effective migraine relief. It blocks the intense nerve endings and targets individual symptoms like nausea, inflammation, and pain.

As your body is rebalanced and rehydrated, you can finally feel better.

IV treatments for migraines are a non-invasive treatment option that takes an hour or less to complete. In addition, a specific “cocktail” for migraine relief may be uniquely formulated to address your specific triggers and needs.

What triggers migraine

You would not be sure if the severe headaches you are experiencing are, in fact, migraines. Sadly, many migraine sufferers go undiagnosed for an extended period, primarily because they believe they are simply dealing with very bad headaches.

While many triggers can lead to migraine episodes, the most common include:

  • Certain foods
  • Dehydration
  • Missing meals
  • Stress or physical tension
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol
  • Birth control medication
  • Poor sleep habits
  • Emotional or physical stressors
  • Sinus problems
  • Changes in the weather
  • Genetics

Identifying your specific triggers can be a very effective approach to reduce the frequency of your migraines. However, one doesn’t need to endure the pain until then – infusion therapy for migraines can provide rapid pain relief.

How IV therapy can help with migraine

The combination of substances provided in an IV infusion is designed to target the specific proteins that induce a migraine event, which is something no other treatment option can accomplish.

The infusion subdues the irritation that causes a migraine event by calming overactive nerve endings. Once the infusion has blocked the necessary proteins, a migraine’s “domino effect” is halted.

Infusion therapy to help migraines has become an increasingly popular treatment option, particularly because it can produce impressive results for many different patients.

Whether you’re previously undergone migraine IV treatment or wonder if it may work for you, we are here to help. During your consultation appointment, you’ll meet with one of our headache specialists to determine your potential triggers, migraine patterns, and treatments that can reduce your migraines’ frequency, severity, and duration.


NAD + Ultimate IV – The Drip that Changed My World

“It was dramatic. I was enthusiastic, energetic. For the first time in months, I felt absolutely normal.”

I was suffering from unexplained headaches and extreme weakness over the past several months. I visited medical doctors who had done all the investigations and check-ups required. Despite this, we could not find any reason why I had this headache.

It started affecting my personal and professional life. My colleagues had started noticing my problems. One of them suggested IV Therapy, and in the beginning, I was dubious about this. 

“How can just an IV drip cure my problems if all these medical experts could not do it.”

I did my research on this and decided to test it. I decided to see Dr. Salim of Healthcall Clinic in DIFC, Dubai. I took an appointment and reached a bit earlier. Dr. Salim was already there. Everyone was accommodating and friendly, and I got a good vibe there.

I explained all my problems to Dr. Salim. He listened to everything patiently and recommended a course of NAD+. After the course, I noticed that I had more energy in my system.

I started standing, walking straight, and feeling fresh when I got up every day in the morning. While taking the NAD+ drip, I was warned by the nurses that it may cause a little discomfort in my abdomen or heart. They had to adjust it drop by drop to be within my comfort zone. They also gave me Oxygen Therapy during the process and it was great and relaxing.

One thing I noticed is that the younger the people, the lesser the time taken to complete taking NAD+ drip. It took me 8 to 9 hours to finish my drip. But I never felt the time delay. The staffs at the clinic were very friendly. They kept visiting me and made sure that I was comfortable. They are ever ready to help you. Each one of them was very well versed in all the treatments provided at the clinic and extraordinary in the way they were handling the patients.

Subsequently, Dr. Salim prescribed to me the intravenous Ultimate Plus IV drip which had glutathione that is an anti-oxidant for cleansing of the body. He also added glutamine since I had digestive issues so that it could heal my digestive system.

To cure my persisting headache, Dr. Salim suggested adding amino acids, taurine, arginine, and biotin in these vitamin drips. The moment the drip started I could feel something happening to my head. Especially my headache area. It was not even 10 minutes and my headache disappeared. For the first time in months, I felt normal. It was amazing. I was enthusiastic and felt energetic.

I highly recommend Dr. Salim and HealthCall to anyone who is facing similar problems. HealthCall can help you get your life back.
