Overscheduled, high-stress living can take its toll on your health. You get rundown and fatigued. It’s hard to focus and stay motivated. You may even notice the physical effects of stress like a weakened immune system that’s not fighting off the bugs like it used to, or dull, dry skin that’s prematurely aging you.
Stress, alcohol, lack of sleep, and a bad diet can rob you of important elements you need to stay strong, healthy, and alert. Ideally, you’d get all your essential nutrients from the foods you eat, but when your busy lifestyle takes over, you end up depleted and can’t catch up and find your balance.
That’s where Dr. Michael K. Obeng at MiKO Medspa in Beverly Hills, California can help. He offers an all-natural, powerful treatment that boosts your energy, mood, and immunity in about 20 minutes.
It’s called intravenous (IV) infusion therapy, and it’s one of the safest, most effective ways to make a big difference in your health and appearance. Here’s what you need to know.
Although IV therapy has risen in popularity recently thanks to a spike in celebrity endorsements, this treatment has been around for more than 100 years. It really came into the limelight in the 1970s, when John Myers, MD, blended a mixture of vitamins and minerals and administered it to patients through an IV drip to treat an array of conditions like migraine, fatigue, and arthritis.
The therapy became known as the Myers’ Cocktail and contained calcium, magnesium, vitamin B complex, vitamin C, thiamin, and vitamin B12, among other nutrients. Today, there are many modified versions of the original formula.
The ingredients in our IV therapies are the same ingredients you get from eating a healthy diet but in concentrated form. There is no risk involved other than the same small chance of infection you risk anytime you get a vaccination or a blood draw.
While the ingredients are safe, that doesn’t mean you should trust just anyone to administer it. It’s important to go to a medical professional like Dr. Obeng. He’s a world-renowned plastic surgeon who understands exactly what your body needs and how to optimize your health through IV therapy. He takes the time to evaluate your health history and personally customizes a unique solution to address your needs.
You may know that if you’re running low on vitamin B12, you feel constantly fatigued, sleepy, foggy, and even sick. But taking an oral vitamin is a slow, inefficient way to solve the problem.
Any pill or tablet you swallow has to travel into your stomach and through your digestive system before it enters your bloodstream. By that time, only about 50% of it can be absorbed and used by your body.
With our IV therapy, you absorb all most all of it (90%), and it happens immediately.
When you experience high levels of stress, you may have symptoms like trouble sleeping, high blood pressure, and anxiety. One of the best ways to help your body manage stress is with the mineral magnesium.
That’s why Dr. Obeng has developed a special IV blend with plenty of magnesium. This vital mineral may affect the way your brain — specifically your hypothalamus — regulates your adrenal and pituitary glands, which determine how you respond to stress.
