My Secret to Stress

In today’s blog post I want to share one of the ways I am able to stay healthy even with my very stressed and hectic lifestyle. Ok confession… I was running myself down about every three months for the last couple years. I went so hard for months at a time that I just couldn’t keep it up. I was becoming physically sick and emotionally and mentally shot. I was forced to take at least a week off which is time I can’t afford to give up. So I pushed through which left me worse off than if I had just taken a sick week. It wasn’t until I was invited into the IV Wellness Boutique in Yaletown that I even realized that I was creating this bad habit for myself and experiencing some very detrimental effects on my health. The team of Naturopathic Doctors offered me a solution for keeping up with my schedule, finding a healthy balance and bringing some consistency and stability into my life.

There are a number of ways IV vitamin therapy can help you, from improving your energy and mood, reducing anxiety and stress, strengthening immunity, balancing hormones as well as supporting a weight loss program. Every experience is different and customized to the individual. All of the medical professionals are experts at administering vitamins, minerals and amino acids. I really enjoy touching base prior to the treatment, where we talk about my needs and find out where I’m at physically, mentally and emotionally. After our brief medical assessment, a customized mix of vitamins that I may be deficient in is made up to provide that extra boost that my body needs.

I really look forward to my hour every month to sit back and relax knowing that my body is getting the nourishment it needs and the stress relief and energy boost to take on whatever comes my way, including the upcoming cold and flu season.
