Intravenous (IV) nutritional therapy can be more effective than taking supplements orally for correcting intracellular nutrient deficiencies. It is used to administer vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream. The intravenous method targets nutrients to where they are most needed, because this method bypasses the need for nutrients having to be absorbed through the gut, especially if you are deficient in hydrochloric acid, digestive enzymes, or perhaps gut related problems that prevents absorption of vital nutirents. The IV route allows for a higher concentration of nutrients to be delivered to the tissues than does oral supplementation.
IV therapy can be of benefit in a variety of conditions:
- Chronic fatigue
- Both acute and chronic infections
- Immune system support and balance
- Migraine headaches
- General “toxicity”
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Chronic digestive disorders
- Support during chemotherapy for cancer
- What To Expect
All IVs are prepared specifically for your particular health needs. Treatments vary in length, but typically take 45-90 minutes.
All patients need to have an initial visit with the doctor before their first IV. Most treatment plans entail 1-10 IV therapy sessions. Patients with chronic illnesses often benefit from regular IV treatments.
A small intravenous catheter is temporarily placed into a vein and the nutrients are administered slowly over a period of time, dependent on which nutrients are used.
