How to Treat Adrenal Fatigue with IV Therapy

All About IV Therapy for Adrenal Fatigue

Most people already know that high levels of stress are unhealthy, however, the long-term effects may be even more damaging than you think. In today’s day in age, our stress levels are so high that they commonly impact our overall wellbeing and energy levels. In fact, demanding jobs, long-term relationship struggles, and other negative situations can cause too much stress for the body to handle, resulting in physical and behavioral symptoms known as adrenal fatigue.

Luckily, we at Lowcountry Male specialize in diagnosing and treating adrenal fatigue in men. Continue reading to learn more about and how we utilize IV Therapy for adrenal fatigue treatment. 

What is Adrenal Fatigue?

Adrenal fatigue is a condition in which the adrenal glands are unable to produce the amount of cortisol that our bodies need to respond to stressful situations. Since cortisol is one of the primary regulatory hormones for the body, putting extensive strain on our adrenals can wear them down and prevent them from working properly.

In addition to prolonged stress, other lifestyle factors can contribute to the development of adrenal fatigue. Sleep deprivation, poor diet, exposure to toxins, excessive alcohol consumption, and high caffeine intake can all lead to the development of adrenal fatigue in men.

How Nutrient IV Therapy for Adrenal Fatigue Works

When you are suffering from adrenal fatigue your body burns through nutrients at an increased rate. Therefore, it is important to replace these nutrients by increasing your intake of certain vitamins and minerals

A vital nutrient for many bodily functions, vitamin C is used by the body to produce cortisol and regulate hormones, so increasing your intake is beneficial for relieving symptoms of adrenal fatigue. Meanwhile, vitamin B plays a vital role in energy production, mood regulation, and adrenal function.

In terms of minerals, zinc regulates cortisol levels, while protecting cells from free radical damage caused by toxins as well as improving immune function. Additionally, we recommend magnesium to treat adrenal fatigue since the mineral fights inflammation, increases energy levels in the body, reduces stress, and improves sleep. Plus, it is estimated that half of Americans are deficient in magnesium due to the consumption of processed foods, thus further exacerbating symptoms of adrenal fatigue. 

Nutrient IV Therapy involves using an IV to bypass the digestive system, so the vitamins and minerals can go directly to your cells. This allows the nutrients to quickly and fully absorb into the body to quickly treat adrenal fatigue. 

Types of IV Therapy Recommended for Adrenal Fatigue

Here at Lowcountry Male, we offer six different types of Nutrient IV Therapy based on your symptoms and health goals. Below are the infusions we typically use to treat adrenal fatigue. 

1. iRevive

As mentioned above, adrenal fatigue primarily depletes vitamins and minerals. iRevive, also known as Myer’s Cocktail, contains vitamins B and C, plus magnesium to help restore the adrenal glands to optimal function. Myer’s Cocktail is named after Dr. John Myers, who used the treatment for an array of health conditions including migraines, chronic fatigue, asthma, fibromyalgia, and more.

2. iEnergy 

Adrenal fatigue can make it hard for your body to generate enough energy to make it through the day. So if you’re dealing with constantly feeling tired, we recommend the iEnergy IV therapy. This treatment contains B vitamins, magnesium and vitamin C to fuel your body with healthy energy. This Nutrient IV can get you back to a regular energy level in no time.

3. iRelax

iRelax, also known as the Immunity Boost, works to restore the essential nutrients that are depleted from adrenal fatigue. This Nutrient IV Therapy uses magnesium, zinc, and vitamins B & C to help decrease the production of cortisol and reduce the body’s stress response

4. iMmunity

Adrenal fatigue can weaken your immune system making it harder for your body to fight disease. The Immunity Boost II includes high doses of vitamins B & C and other immunity increasing and antiviral nutrients to revitalize your immune response. 

What to Expect During a Nutrient IV Therapy Treatment

Nutrient IV Therapy takes approximately 60-120 minutes to complete depending on which infusion you select. Lowcountry Male offers a spa-like atmosphere for you to relax while the vitamins are absorbed into the body. Most people notice results within 24 hours as they feel refreshed, hydrated, and energized.
