What is Intravenous Nutrient Therapy?
Intravenous (I.V.) Nutrient Therapy is the delivery of high doses of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants directly into the bloodstream. This is, by far, the most efficient method of providing the body with therapeutic levels of nutrients to treat a wide array of conditions and illnesses.
How does I.V. Therapy help in controlling seasonal allergies?
I.V. Nutrient Therapy at Brio Integrative Health Centre
One of the ways we approach seasonal allergies is by using high dose Intravenous Vitamin C. Histamines are contained in white blood cells called mast cells. Vitamin C along with other nutrients help stabilize the mast cells so that they don’t easily release the histamine content. By stabilizing the white blood cells, our immune system is far less hyperactive to the allergens floating around in the air. Some patients respond in as little as a few sessions, while others may need this supportive therapy for the entire season. In conjunction with “Seasonal Balance” acupuncture treatments, we can greatly reduce the recurrence of allergy symptoms for future seasons.
