Feeling tired is normal. It’s your body’s way of telling you it’s time to sleep, and adults generally need at least seven hours of sleep each night to be fully rested.
But sometimes, sleeping doesn’t leave you refreshed. Maybe you wake up feeling like you haven’t slept at all, or maybe you find yourself exhausted at the end of each day.
Fatigue that lingers for days, weeks, or even months can interfere with your daily activities and erode your quality of life — but IV vitamin therapy could give you the boost of energy you need to feel better.
Daniel J. Headrick, MD, and our team offer IV vitamin therapy at Headrick Medical Center. From the ever-popular Myers cocktail to a customized drip just for you, we’re here to identify potential vitamin deficiencies and recommend a therapy plan to enhance your energy levels and beat fatigue.
Everyone feels tired from time to time, but fatigue is more complex than simply getting a bad night’s sleep. It’s a feeling of tiredness that’s significant and long-lasting, and unfortunately, sleeping may not make it go away.
Fatigue is a common symptom of many different medical conditions, making it difficult to identify and diagnose in some cases. It could be caused by an acute condition, like the flu or jet lag, but it’s often traced back to a chronic condition.
Mental health conditions, like depression and anxiety, can cause fatigue. Other chronic conditions that could also cause fatigue include substance use disorder, insomnia, cancer, fibromyalgia, and many more.
Sometimes, fatigue itself is the main symptom. Chronic fatigue syndrome is characterized by an ongoing feeling of exhaustion, and it affects up to 2.5 million Americans.
No matter the cause of your fatigue, it can negatively impact your quality of life. If you’re feeling tired all the time, Dr. Headrick and our team provide personalized assessments to identify possible vitamin or nutrient deficiencies that may be contributing to your fatigue.
We review your health history and your symptoms to help you decide if IV vitamin therapy is a good option for you. For many people dealing with feelings of tiredness that just won’t go away, vitamin therapy offers a unique boost of energy to help them feel their best.
Our team offers a variety of vitamin infusion cocktails and we recommend a combination of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to enhance wellness. Vitamins B and D offer energy- and mood-boosting benefits, while vitamin C increases immunity. IV vitamin therapy is also hydrating to help you overcome sluggishness.
If you choose IV vitamin therapy, our team tells you what you can expect during your infusions. Vitamin infusions can take between 20-60 minutes, and there’s no down time required after your therapy.
You relax in a comfortable chair while a licensed medical provider prepares your vitamin infusion and inserts your IV. You’re free to nap, read, or watch TV. Once the drip starts, your vitamin cocktail enters your bloodstream and you begin to feel the effects of therapy.
Every person is different, so we work with you to develop a customized treatment plan that meets your needs. Some people get vitamin infusions only when they’re feeling particularly tired, while others make it part of their routine so they can enjoy ongoing wellness.
When fatigue limits your life, vitamin therapy could help restore that lost energy. Schedule a consultation at Headrick Medical Center to find out if you’re a candidate for IV vitamins. Call our San Juan Capistrano, California, office today or book an appointment online.
