Suffering From Fibromyalgia? IV Vitamin Therapy Can Help

Fibromyalgia affects approximately 10 million people in the United States — 75-90% of whom are women. This chronic disease can have an enormous quality-of-life impact on its sufferers, who grapple with widespread pain and overwhelming fatigue.

As medical researchers work tirelessly to find the cause of fibromyalgia (and a cure), the medical world is left to find ways to make life a little easier for fibromyalgia patients. One of these treatments is IV vitamin therapy, giving your body a much-needed immunity and health boost.

At Wellness at Century City, we provide our Los Angeles area patients with an integrative approach that tackles tough medical issues like fibromyalgia from many different angles. Under the experienced leadership of Dr. Jessica Cho, we avail ourselves of the myriad ways to strengthen your body to give it the tools it needs to fight back against systemic conditions like fibromyalgia. And IV vitamin therapy is finding a place as one such tool.

Working with the right person

Before we get into how IV vitamin therapy can help, we want to emphasize just how important it is to find the right doctor when it comes to fibromyalgia. This condition is often misdiagnosed, confused with other medical problems, and just generally misunderstood, even among medical professionals.

Here at our practice, Dr. Cho specializes in integrative treatments that combine Western and Eastern medicines, giving our patients access to a variety of treatments that focus on health, quality of life, and general well-being. And this type of approach is especially important for sufferers of fibromyalgia because of its far-reaching effects on both physical and mental health.

Better delivery

As part of our suite of treatments, we’ve successfully used IV vitamin infusions to help our patients overcome many different problems, from aging to fatigue. What sets IV vitamin therapy apart is that it offers maximum absorption through your blood by bypassing your gastrointestinal (GI) system altogether.

If you take vitamins orally, they go through a regular digestive process, which means that what you ultimately absorb into your system may be insufficient. Not to mention, taking certain vitamins and minerals by mouth can cause GI upset.

With our IV therapy, we deliver the nutrients directly into your blood, where they can be circulated throughout your body, providing the resources you need for healthier function.

Helping fibro

Our Myers cocktail IV, which contains magnesium, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C, is designed to help ease some of your fibromyalgia symptoms, such as:

The goal behind this micronutrient blend is to boost your immunity, encourage better nerve health, and promote circulation of healing resources

Most of our fibromyalgia patients benefit from a weekly infusion, but this is just a rule of thumb. Every patient that walks through our doors benefits from a tailored approach, and we have a full menu of IV nutrient therapy to meet their specific needs and goals.
