What is IV Therapy?
Intravenous (I.V.) Therapy is the delivery of high doses of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids and botanicals 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 IV Therapy Work?
When our body is sick, exhausted or dealing with inflammation, our cells lose the ability to absorb nutrients. This becomes a problem as all cells need nutrients to heal and repair itself. I.V. Therapy helps drive vitamins and minerals into our cells by providing a high enough concentration gradient. Once the cell has all the appropriate nutrients, it will create energy and guides the entire organism to be healthy again. Patients report improved recovery, decrease in fatigue and a feeling of well-being.
How is IV Therapy Different From Taking My Supplements?
Under normal conditions, oral supplementation of vitamins and minerals will meet the needs of the general population. However, many patients have mal-absorption issues which means that nutrients from the foods or supplements they eat are not properly taken up into the body. It’s also important to note that people with diagnosed illnesses, such as diabetes, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, seasonal allergies or the common cold will require much higher doses of vitamins and minerals above the “Recommended Daily Allowance” (RDA). Intravenous Nutrient Therapy is a very safe and effective way of delivering high doses of nutrients to the body.
Is IV Therapy Safe?
Yes, I.V. therapy has been safely used worldwide for over 40 years. There are a few side effects to be aware of; since a needle will be placed in a vein, there may be bruising, bleeding or a risk of infection in that area. A warm sensation may be felt on the skin surface.
