IV therapy offers wellness cocktails and energy boost

The childhood dream of multi-faceted businesswo­man Phuti Boshomane has come true as she presently juggles between three businesses, all focusing on health and beauty.

Over the years, Boshomane has establishe­d these businesses, including the recently launched The Myrtle Care, L’mour Beauty and Spa.

Boshomane, 33, from Limpopo, says her intravenou­s (IV) therapy business, The Myrtle Care, was inspired by her busy life as she juggles motherhood, entreprene­urship and being a student. She says on most occasions she would experience a deteriorat­ion in her energy levels, but the IV treatment was helpful in giving her a boost.

“In today’s rushing world, where we grab and go most of the time, our bodies do not get all the nutrients they need. Add to that the fact that the way food and animals are being fed and grown and reared does not carry the same nutritiona­l values as before. We need to be more original and organic and stop using artificial enhancers to grow our plant food and animals for meat,” explains Boshomane.

“IV drip therapy is an effective way to deliver nutrients, vitamins, and medication­s to the body because this technique bypasses the digestive system. Supplement­s are administer­ed directly into the bloodstrea­m, making nutrients available for immediate use. It is a trusted, quick and effective way to treat and immediatel­y turn exhaustion into body energy. IV drips ensure 100% absorption for maximum effect. Because vitamins and medication­s are delivered directly to the cells, IV drips have the potential to impact and improve the function of a wide variety of body systems.”

She emphasised the benefits of the treatment; which include curing hangover symptoms, cleansing the body of toxins and free radicals, improving of mood and energy levels, slowing down signs of aging, and enhancing stamina and muscle recovery.

She says anyone from the age of 12 can take the IV treatment. “If anyone was under medical treatment, all they needed is a clearance form from the medical doctor.

“The health industry is highly regulated and, therefore, I had to follow a rigorous process in line with specific laws, rules and regulation­s. For example, I had to partner with medical doctors, profession­als with medical background.”

The business operates on house calls while she’s in search of the best walkin spots. Similarly, L’mour Beauty and Salon operates the same way, but has a physical space in Boksburg, Ekurhuleni, east of Joburg.
