“Eat less” is the basic mantra of most diet professionals. But when all you can do is think about a juicy steak and bowl of ice cream, said advice can be hard to follow. Luckily, you don’t have to just accept defeat. For some patients, IV Drip therapy helped curb their appetite and kept their desire to binge eat at bay.

How Appetite Works
In her 2010 essay, “Your Appetite Reveals How Your Brain Works,” Faith Brynie Ph.D. explores the different pathways of the brain. Brynie explains that rather than the brain’s pathways being organized in a linear fashion, the structure might resemble something closer to the Internet. She said:
Instead of a top-down chain of command, the brain may be organized in a system of interconnecting circuits in which--along one path or another--everything is connected to everything else and no central command-and-control center operates. The brain's structural connectivity may depend on a network of circuits, meaning that virtually every part of the brain can influence every other part.
These pathways control everything from energy levels and sex drive to appetite and metabolism. They are dependent on key vitamins and nutrients. When you are deficient in various nutrients, it can have an adverse affect on your cognitive function and overall well being,reports Oregon State University’s Micronutrient Information Center.
Vitamin deficiencies can cause you to:
- Think you’re hungry when you’re not
- Feel depressed and look to food for solace
- Eat out of tiredness
- Slow down your metabolism, making your body hold onto excess fat
IV Drip Therapy Can Help Curb Your Appetite By Restoring Your Body to its Optimal Levels
We’ve all heard the saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” But for most of us, an apple a day doesn’t provide nearly the daily vitamins we need to be our best selves.
Not only did these individuals experience a slower metabolism, they were also most likely to think they were hungry.
IV Drip therapy utilizes an intravenous IV to deliver the key vitamins and nutrients your body needs, directly into your bloodstream. This allows you to bypass the digestive system, allowing many patients to feel an immediate benefit.
How to Get Started
The first step is to schedule a consultation. Because every patient is unique, each treatment is unique. This means, your IV Drip therapy cocktail will be carefully created to meet your specific needs.
