Fight Frequent Headaches With IV Therapy
Do you have frequent headaches but don’t know what’s causing them? A cocktail of vitamins and minerals could be what you need to find quick relief.

About 45 million Americans suffer from chronic headaches. A headache is considered chronic when it occurs more than 15 times per month. 

In certain cases, IV therapy, also known as intravenous therapy, can help sufferers manage these headaches. IV therapy is a way of delivering nutrients, vitamins, and minerals directly to the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. 

Traditional vitamins and supplements have a poor absorption rate. In fact, you can expect to absorb only 10-20% of the active ingredients. 

However, IV therapy ensures that almost 100% of the beneficial substances are absorbed. 

Below we asked our experts at iHealth Care Services in Laurel, Maryland, to explain some of the common causes of headaches and when IV therapy can help. 

Common types of headaches 

Common types of headaches include migrainestension headaches, and cluster headaches

Migraines usually involve intense pain on one side of the head, often accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to loud noises and bright lights. 

Tension headaches are the most common types of headaches and manifest themselves as pressure and pain on both sides of the head. 

Cluster headaches are rarer and more severe. They cause piercing pain, usually around the eye area. 

Headache triggers and how IV therapy can help 

Common triggers for headaches include the following:

  • Chronic stress 
  • Foods containing tyramine
  • Magnesium deficiency 
  • Loud noises and bright lights 
  • Alcohol and caffeine 
  • Dental infections 
  • Low blood pressure
  • Dehydration 
  • Insomnia 

IV therapy can help reduce or eliminate headaches caused by dehydration, low blood pressure, magnesium deficiency, and chronic stress. 

Due to the presence of electrolytes, the ingredients found in the IV drip can hydrate your body better than plain water can. Also, IV drips provide you with enough vitamins and minerals to reduce your risk for chronic stress and deficiencies; they also optimize your blood pressure. 

Why choose IV therapy for the treatment of headaches? 

IV therapy can help address the root cause of your headaches, providing you with the vitamins and minerals necessary for a healthy body. 

Unfortunately, due to the overuse of pesticides, most soils are depleted. This results in fruits and vegetables that have lower amounts of vitamins and minerals. Also, due to spending a lot of time indoors, most Americans have lower amounts of vitamin D and are more likely to be chronically stressed as well.
