Imagine going to a beauty clinic and being able to receive all your nutrients including vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, proteins and more instantaneously, and specifically tailored to what you and your body needs. Many of us pop supplement pills every morning in order to keep ourselves in optimum health, or to boost our bodies and replace any nutrient deficiencies. Medical Skin Clinic Australia, based in Torquay, VIC are, in the coming weeks, opening their IV Bar and will be able to do all of the above and more. We asked them more about their IV Bar for IV Nutrition, Vitamins and Hydration.
What are the benefits of an IV Bar?
Receiving your nutrients and vitamins via IV has a few advantages. Firstly, swallowing a huge number of pills every morning can be exhausting, and expensive! Being able to relax in beautiful, spa like surrounds, watching a movie, reading your favourite magazine or catching up on emails is a much desired time out from the world, and you’ll be enhancing your health and wellbeing at the same time.
Vitamins and minerals are necessary for our bodies and minds to perform at their best. A deficiency in any of them can cause various health issues including:
- Compromising your immune system (and ability to fight off those colds and flus!)
- Tiredness and exhaustion
- Dull hair and skin, teeth and gum health
- Gut health (your gut health can affect how the rest of your body functions)
- Muscle strength and bone density
- Inflammation (the cause for various health issues)
- Nervous system functioning
- Various diseases.
Whilst we can get essential vitamins and minerals from our food, most of us don’t consume the various foods required to keep our levels right. For those who swallow pills, taking a huge amount of supplements every morning can actually adversely affect your gut without you knowing. You need to make sure you are taking the right ones to do more good than harm.
The IV Bar treatment involves being hooked up to an IV drip, not unlike one you would see at a hospital (only you’re in much more luxuriant surroundings!) and the nutrients are injected straight into your vein. That’s the reason why this is such an effective way of absorption – you are getting 100% of the nutrients and their benefits instead of swallowing them via pills and losing a percentage as they travel through your GI tract before they reach your bloodstream.
Not only that, the nutrients and vitamins you receive will be individually tailored exactly to what you need! Dr Caroline Taylor Walker from Medical Skin Clinic tells us, “We will be able to offer our patients specific combinations for illnesses, infections, recovery, sports recovery, immune boosters, detox, general health and wellness, hangovers, sickness, nutrient deficiencies, migraines plus combinations customised for your concerns.” Hangovers? Awesome!
The idea of the IV Bar is not necessarily a new one. Although it’s only really taking off in Australia now (with Medical Skin Clinic Australia being one of the first clinics to adopt and introduce the idea), the rich and famous have been having these treatments in New York, Europe and LA for a few years now.
Get your glow on
Not only are these IV treatments great for your insides, but having the right stuff on your inside is where your outer glow comes from. If your body is healthy, your skin tends to be healthy and have an extra glow too. Your hair, skin, nails, eyes and every other part of you will benefit from getting the nutrients your body needs.
At your Medical Skin Clinic consultation you will initially see their doctor where you will discuss your concerns and identify which IV will be best for you.
I know I’m loving the idea of this, and can’t wait to book in my treatment next time I’m in Victoria. I’d love to hear from any of you who have this treatment – email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below if you do!
