Intravenous therapy delivers vitamins and minerals directly into the blood allowing them to circulate to all organs and tissues in the body. This is the fastest, most efficient way to provide important nutrients that support healthy cell function.
Many people have a compromised gastrointestinal tract due to poor dietary choices, prescription medications, or weight loss surgery. If people cannot breakdown and assimilate nutrients from their food or supplements, they cannot support their body to heal itself. IV therapy not only bypasses the GI tract, it delivers a greater quantity of nutrients than even a healthy GI tract can absorb.
Additionally, patients often request an IV because they are tired of taking supplements.
IVs generally take about one hour for infusion, but can take longer depending on the patient’s tolerance and the ingredients infused. Patients can relax in a comfortable lounge chair and read, use their laptop, or even take a nap. IV therapy is a fantastic way to speed healing in a safe, effective manner.
Your doctor may suggest IV therapy as part of your treatment protocol.
They may be used to treat:
- Acute illness such as colds, flus or other upper respiratory infections
- Chronic illness such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and other autoimmune conditions
- Detoxification of metals and other toxins from the body
- Vitamin deficiencies
