Extivita Therapies for Insomnia:
Nutritional IV Therapy:
We strongly recommend our Myer’s Cocktail IV and Glutathione IV for those with insomnia due to their antioxidant and nutritional benefits. Insomnia has been associated with increased levels of oxidative stress, something that occurs when 1) there are elevated levels of reactive oxygen species and/or 2) there are deficient antioxidant defenses(19).
Both Vitamin C, which is in the Myer’s Cocktail IV, and Glutathione are powerful antioxidants that scavenges and eliminates damaging free radicals thereby decreasing oxidative stress(20-21). Deficient glutathione levels have also been observed in people with insomnia(19). Additionally, both Magnesium and B Vitamins (components of the Myer’s Cocktail IV) have been shown to improve sleep-related issues(22-24).
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF):
There is evidence to suggest that pulsed-electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) may improve sleep duration, sleep quality, and overall insomnia severity in those with insomnia (25-26). One study found that 70% of participants experienced “very clear improvement” or better and 94% reported “clear improvement” after 4 weeks of PEMF therapy(26).
