Vitamin Injections Therapy: What it is and How it is Beneficial

Vitamin Injections Therapy: What it is and How it is Beneficial

Vitamin injections in Lake Stevens are when a person receives a potent and pure, prescription only type of vitamins. These vitamins are created in a manner that is safe for injection. These injections are typically administered beneath the skin, into a vein or muscle.

A common question about vitamin injections is why they are necessary. Most people believe that the vitamins they take by mouth are plenty. However, when a vitamin injection is given, the body becomes saturated with the type of vitamins, providing each cell with what it needs instantly. There are some patients that will feel the effects immediately, while others may take some time to reap the benefits it offers.

One of the primary reasons that vitamin injections are taken so often is because they provide a boost for individuals who are under a large amount of stress or those who just want to prevent issues from coming up in the future. Additionally, if a person has not been able to take their vitamins as they should, or been exposed to sick individuals, vitamin injections provide an excellent boost for their immune system.

Vitamin injections come with one of the safest records of all type of injections. While they may not be the right option for everyone, the majority of takers will be able to tolerate them quite well.

There are some different conditions that can benefit from the use of vitamin injections including low energy or fatigue; instances of chronic pain; prevention for cold and flu symptoms; irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive issues; headaches; allergies; and many others.

Back to School Health Tips

  • Set a bedtime. It’s easy during summer for bedtime to occur later during the evening. Now is the perfect time to start rolling back bedtime to a more normal bedtime so everyone is rested for a school day. How much sleep does your kid need?
  • Preschoolers 3-5 years. 10 to 13 hours
  • School-aged Children 6-13 years. 9 to 11 hours
  • Teenagers 14-17 years. 8 to 10 hours
  • Teach good hygiene habits. Remind kids to always wash their hands after going to the restroom and before eating. Consider packing hand sanitizer in the school back pack
  • Prepare healthy snacks. Stocking up on healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, whole-grain bread and lean protein like turkey. Take a few minutes during the weekend to cut up fruits and vegetables and prepare things like tuna salad or hard-boiled eggs for convenience in the mornings. Consider packing an ice pack in lunchbox to keep foods cold.
  • Manage stress. Getting back into school can be stressful for everyone! Try not to overload schedules (as much as possible). Schoolwork and after-school activities are important, but it’s also essential to take time to relax, play and spend time as a family
