We believe in the power of consistency. If you’re on a mission to improve and revitalize your health and wellbeing, what matters is not what you do occasionally, it is what you do consistently. IV therapy is not exempt from this rule. IV therapy is a highly effective modality to boost your immune system, increase your energy levels, replenish your body, and ultimately feel and perform better than ever. But like all healthy habits, they’re more effective if you do them consistently. Here’s why.
According to neurobiologists and cognitive psychologists, 40 to 95 percent of human behavior is habitual. That means that on a daily basis, we are predominantly on autopilot, going through the same motions every day. But why is this relevant? We hear you ask. What you do on a daily basis defines your success, your happiness, and most relevant to us – your health. What are you consistently doing in your daily life? Are you aware of how greatly these things are impacting your health, for better or worse?
There’s a famous quote by John C. Maxwell that summarizes this nicely: ‘You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine’. What you do daily, weekly, monthly, yearly all adds up. If one junk meal turns into a daily habit, you’re going to start gaining weight, spiking inflammation, impacting cognitive and physiological function and before you know it – you’ve drastically impacted your health and longevity, as well as your quality of life.
If you ask any fit, healthy person in your life how they manage to stay so fit and healthy, the answer is always guaranteed to include an ode to consistency. Why? Because you are the sum of all your habits. You’re not going to get fit after one workout, you’re not going to restore a nutrient deficiency after one supplement, nor are you going to heal your chronic migraines after one IV therapy session. Repetition + consistency = long term change.
What does the science say?
But you might be wondering, is there evidence to back up this claim? Or is this a marketing strategy by health and wellness companies to gain repeat customers? The answer is the former – yes, there is an abundance of science to support the claim that consistent action is the key to maintaining good health over time. Let’s dive into it.
In 2015 a study was published in the Journal of Behavioral Medicine that tells us a lot about the psychology of habits as it pertains to health.
The researchers conducted a 12-week study, where they surveyed more than 100 people who were new members of a gym. They were trying to understand what caused some of these people to adopt exercise as a habit, compared to others who would attend sporadically, before falling off the bandwagon completely. Interestingly, the researchers found that the most important thing you can do to create a new habit was to do it consistently. The magic word.
It didn’t matter if the participants exercised at 6 am or 10 pm, or if they did yoga or HIIT training, what mattered is that they exercised consistently. This is because the more you do something, the more it is able to affect.
Here’s an example: imagine you have a glass of water. Pour a bit out each time you’re overworked, stressed, dehydrated, sleep-deprived, drinking alcohol, eating junk, and being sedentary. Your glass gets empty very quickly. When you add positive healthy habits to your life, you are metaphorically adding water to your cup, to counteract some of the negative, uncontrollable variables of your lifestyle. This is where Prime IV therapy comes in.
You can’t wait until you’re dehydrated, exhausted, overworked, stressed and feeling like crap and hope that one IV therapy session will make you feel 100% better. It might. But it is significantly more effective when you consistently do IV therapy, to make sure your glass never gets totally empty, because it’s way harder to come back from.
Implementing healthy habits like regular IV therapy, exercise, stress management, drinking enough water and sleeping 8 hours a night will compound together and transform your health, mental wellbeing, and longevity. You’ll feel alive.
If you’re not convinced, think of it this way – IV therapy involves pumping intravenous fluids into your veins, delivering a surge of vitamins and fluids to efficiently replenish and deeply hydrate your body at a cellular level. 92 percent of US adults have vitamin deficiency. Vitamin deficiencies are associated with symptoms like:
- Brain fog
- Low energy
- Poor skin quality
- Dry hair and nails
- Low mood
- Increased susceptibility to illness
- Chronic pain
Amongst others. If you’re experiencing a vitamin deficiency, which based on the statistics, you likely are – it’s not enough to occasionally get IV therapy. It takes an estimated six to eight weeks to recover from a vitamin deficiency if consistent treatment is received. Doing IV therapy occasionally is not giving your body enough time and resources to achieve full benefits.
This brings us back to our initial point about habits: you are what you do consistently. The quality of your health is defined by your regular habits.
