What Is IV Therapy
IV (intravenous) therapy is a method for treating nutritional shortcomings and health concerns via safe high doses of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. It may help alleviate colds, the flu, arthritis, chronic fatigue and Lyme disease. It is also an option as adjunct cancer support.
IV therapy helps hydrate the body and detoxify your liver and lymphatic system, which may improve the functioning of your body.
This form of therapy may be ideal for those with an aversion to consuming pills or for those with a compromised digestive system. As a compound, IV therapy delivers a treatment directly into the circulatory system; this allows the compound to bypass the stomach and intestines. The body then addresses nutritional issues without side effects (i.e. upset stomach) that may occur from high-dosed oral supplements.
Advantages Of IV Therapy & Booster Shots
With the use of IV therapy, you do not have to wait for the IV compound to pass through the liver and digestive system. Instead, nutrients are inserted through the veins, entering your bloodstream. As a result, vitamins and minerals (e.g vitamin C, vitamin B, vitamin D, etc.) are immediately conveyed to the cells, making them promptly available for the body.
In contrast to swallowing high-dosed oral supplements (i.e. vitamin C and magnesium) patients who have undergone IV therapy have reported fewer side effects. Unlike intravenous therapy, swallowing high-dosed supplements may result in diarrhea, nausea, or cramping.
According to research, you need high concentrations of certain nutrients to notice benefits; vitamin C is one example. However, when taken orally, high doses of these nutrients cannot exert their benefits. This is because when you swallow them in liquid, capsule or tablet form, only a small amount of the nutrients are absorbed into the bloodstream; the rest of the nutrients are flushed out of the body. Also, some patients cannot absorb certain supplements in the intestines due to their health conditions. IV therapy may be advantageous for those who require high doses of nutrients to treat their health issues.
Nutritional IV therapy always requires a complete assessment of your health and medical history, which is conducted by a naturopathic doctor. This initial assessment ensures that the conditions you are suffering from (i.e. intestinal malabsorption or the common cold) will be addressed in your IV drip. The IV drip will contain natural ingredients compounded specifically for your health goals and/or concerns.
