IV NUTRITIONAL THERAPY
Intravenous (IV) Nutritional Therapy is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the bloodstream used to correct intra-cellular nutrient deficiencies. Digestive problems can and do result in multiple vitamin and nutrient deficiencies and these problems are more common in those that are already ill and in the aged.
With limitation in the digestive processes being present in increasingly large numbers of patient need for IV Nutritional Therapy. Oral intake of such high doses is simply not possible due to absorption limitations from the digestive process. Cells can absorb more nutrients in IV form in a one treatment compared to oral intake.
IV nutritional therapy can provide enormous health benefits depending on the condition(s) being treated, the specific protocol(s) used, the number of treatments and the overall health of the patient being treated. In many respects, IV nutritional therapy is a preventive aging measure since it improves the nutritional content inside of the cells.
Some of the specific benefits that patients may experience include:
- Increased energy
- An overall sense of well-being
- Improved sports performance
- Improved healing and recovery from sports “wear and tear” or even surgical procedures
- Enhanced immune support
- Stress relief
A good example of this is the use of Vitamin C when trying to overcome a cold due to some sort of virus. The antiviral effects of Vitamin C are seen when blood levels are around 10-15 mg/dL. This level is achievable with IV therapy but not orally. Oral dosage typically peaks with blood levels around 1.2-4.0 mg/dL vs. IV therapy of 50-90 mg/dL.
Scientific evidence has demonstrated that a variety of conditions can benefit from the use of IV nutrition. A few of the conditions that may be helped include:
- Athletic Performance Recovery
- Candida infection
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
- Crohn’s Disease
- Epstein Barr inflection
- Heavy Metal Toxicity
- Increased stress
- Poor Circulation
- Poor Detoxification
- Post-Gastric Bypass
- Ulcerative Colitis
- Upper Respiratory Tract Infections
- Weakened Immune System
The Myers’ cocktail is one of the more commonly known vitamin therapies. It consists of Magnesium, Calcium, Selenium, Manganese, Zinc and Vitamin C. People who feel tired and stressed and fatigued may benefit from the Myers’ Cocktail. Many report that they feel completely refreshed and rejuvenated after a single treatment, and the results can last from several days to several weeks.
