We all lead busy lives, so it can be very easy for us to lose sight of the things that matter and fail to look after ourselves as well as we can. Luckily, Dr Sharon’s fantastic range of health and wellbeing injections offer an effective solution for those who need help in prioritising what’s important and can provide adequate protection against a range of chronic conditions. Because, after all, good health starts from within.
Whether you’re struggling to manage the effects of a vitamin deficiency, fighting a losing battle with your physical health or merely looking to combat the most distressing signs of ageing, you can be assured that Dr Sharon has a suitable treatment for you. Effective against a selection of health problems and designed to give your immune system a timely boost when you need it most, these injectable anti-ageing solutions can make a lack of energy, motivation and positivity a thing of the past. But why are they so important and how do they work?
The importance of vitamins
Vitamins are crucial to the body’s ability to remain healthy and functional. In their absence, it can be difficult for our internal systems to work as well as they can, which sometimes leads to many prominent health conditions and concerns. In most cases, following a balanced diet can provide us with the best chance of getting all of the vitamins we need, but there are instances where these can be obtained by taking additional supplements or receiving vitamin injections. Two of the most important vitamins for the maintenance of good mental and physical health are vitamin B-12 and vitamin C.
As vitamin B-12 can be a crucial component in the production of energy, healthy brain function and red cell formation, a deficiency in this type of vitamin can result in persistent feelings of lethargy and fatigue, regular bouts of constipation and substantial issues with memory and understanding.
Further effects of a lack of vitamin B-12 can include a tendency to become irritable and to experience frequent symptoms of depression. When this vitamin isn’t found in the body in plentiful supply, it is also possible to suffer from issues with balance and vision and become more vulnerable to headaches, heart palpitations, mouth ulcers and paraesthesia (pins and needles).
Inseparable from the healthy functioning of the human body, vitamin C is vital to the fulfilment of a number of processes that we may take for granted, including wound healing and the prevention of cell damage. It can also play a part in collagen production, which means that it’s essential to ensure that our skin remains firm and healthy. As it is impossible for our body to store vitamin C, its supplies should be topped up on a regular basis and this can normally be achieved by making sure we eat foods rich in this particular type of vitamin.
Whilst it’s unquestionable that vitamin C is crucial to our overall health and wellbeing, those suffering from a vitamin C deficiency are likely to experience a number of common symptoms, including bleeding or swollen gums, fatigue, joint pain, loose teeth and the emergence of coloured patches on the skin.
How likely am I to develop a vitamin deficiency?
Although vitamin deficiencies can be often prevented by following a healthy and well-balanced diet, they are sometimes unavoidable and can become more likely due to a range of other lifestyle factors or underlying health conditions. These risk factors can include smoking, drinking alcohol, following a vegetarian or vegan diet, being diabetic, taking certain prescription medications and having a gastrointestinal disorder such as Crohn’s disease.
Vitamin therapy can be a brilliant way of managing the symptoms associated with vitamin B-12 and vitamin C deficiencies. As a form of treatment in which patients are injected with additional supplies of these vitamins at regular intervals throughout the year, vitamin therapy can significantly improve mental and physical health, boost immune function and allow the body to properly fulfill its duties. This is also incredibly quick to perform and can be completed in a matter of minutes, making it one of the most sought after of all lunchtime treatments.
This is advisable for patients searching for a solution to many long-standing, overwhelming and persistent symptoms, and can also be pursued as a viable anti-ageing treatment.
Are these injections painful?
As everyone’s pain tolerance differs, it’s hard to answer this question definitively. You may experience a little discomfort when injected, but this pain will be brief and shouldn’t persist for long after the procedure.
Are there any side effects?
Patients may experience bruising, inflammation or tenderness at the injection site, but this should disappear after a few days. In rarer cases, these injections may result in symptoms such as headaches, dizziness or nausea.
How are vitamin injections better than taking oral supplements?
As vitamin deficiencies often occur as a result of patients struggling to absorb vital nutrients from food and supplements, vitamin therapy provides a valuable solution for this issue due to its ability to deliver these nutrients to the body’s cells directly.
How long does it take to feel the effects of this treatment?
As everyone is different, this can vary from patient to patient. Some people report an instant change in how they feel whereas this can take a little longer for others.
