How IV Therapy Can Treat Your Chronic Fatigue
It’s normal to feel tired after a long day’s work, but chronic fatigue is different — it’s extreme and debilitating, making it nearly impossible to work, sleep, and engage in life. Discover if IV therapy can help restore your body and your life.

Chronic fatigue may be a symptom of your overpacked schedule, an underactive lifestyle, or countless other circumstances and issues. It can even be a health condition — myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). 

The best treatment for chronic fatigue depends on the underlying cause, and sometimes the problem is as simple as a nutrient deficiency. That’s where Dr. Amos Ladouceur comes in. 

At Weekend Urgent Care in View Park, California, he offers IV therapy that delivers vital nutrients directly into your bloodstream to restore your energy and boost your immune system. Instead of struggling to get through each day, you could face work, hobbies, and social events with vim and vigor. Here’s how it works. 

When to consider IV therapy for fatigue

There’s no cure for ME/CSF, but the symptoms are treatable, and nutritional supplements and a well-balanced diet top the list of effective remedies. In fact, all causes of chronic fatigue can benefit from a healthy dose of essential vitamins and minerals, which is what you get from IV therapy.

Instead of meticulously planning your meals or taking oral supplements and waiting for the effects to kick in, you can get immediate results from IV therapy because the vitamin-rich solution bypasses your digestive system and goes straight into your bloodstream. 

Consider IV therapy when you have chronic fatigue due to:

  • Stress
  • Jet lag
  • Excessive alcohol use
  • Poor diet
  • Insomnia
  • Sleep apnea
  • Viral infections
  • Lyme disease
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Anemia
  • Dehydration

IV therapy doesn’t cure diseases, but it can help your body fight infections and viruses and support your immune system so you can heal. 

How IV therapy addresses chronic fatigue

Dr. Ladouceur develops an IV therapy plan that addresses your unique needs. After a thorough physical examination and review of your medical history, he creates an IV solution packed with the vitamins and minerals that meet your body’s requirements. For example, your IV therapy solution could include:

  • Glutathione, your body’s most powerful antioxidant
  • Vitamin C, an energy-boosting antioxidant
  • Zinc, a mineral that helps your body turn food into energy
  • Vitamin B, a group of vitamins that helps you convert food to energy
  • Magnesium, a mineral that eases muscle fatigue

Dr. Ladouceur can also add medication to your IV therapy to address co-existing conditions if necessary. 

Overcoming chronic fatigue

IV therapy can help resolve several sources of chronic fatigue, especially those related to nutritional deficiencies and stress. As the IV treatment restores your strength and vitality, you have more energy to devote to your health. Dr. Ladouceur recommends these strategies for keeping fatigue at bay:

  • Reduce stress
  • Exercise often
  • Eat well
  • Avoid excessive alcohol consumption
  • Get plenty of rest
  • Stay hydrated
  • Maintain a healthy weight
