Why is Nutritional Intravenous (IV) Therapy so popular right now?
What’s the deal? Why would anyone sign up to get poked by a needle voluntarily?
IV Therapy is a fantastic tool to get vitamins and minerals into the body with 100% absorption.
The key is that IV Therapy bypasses the digestive tract. Whenever you eat or drink something the liver will determine what stays and what is eliminated.
This is known as the “first pass”. Basically it ends up chucking out about half of what enters the body and throws it in the trash.
This makes it impossible to absorb all the nutrients that we ingest even if we are eating healthy food.
Things become even more complicated if there are digestive issues such as chronic diarrhea, Crohn’s Disease, and Ulcerative Colitis.
People with these conditions are working with constant malnutrition in the body. This is due to loss of nutrients through the digestive tract that can lead to feeling of extremely tiredness and depression on top of their digestive symptoms.
The most common condition I see in my practice is fatigue.
Whether you’re feeling tired from a stressful week or you have a condition known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome IV Therapy will deliver a quick pick me up to the body.
The vitamins and minerals your body needs will replenish you and combat your symptoms. Get back on your feet quickly, and incorporate nutritional IV therapy into your long-term health strategy.
Breaking the Antibiotic Cycle.
Do you suffer from chronic sinus infections or get sick at the drop of a hat? Nutritional IV therapy is an absolute life saver if you’re trying to break the vicious antibiotic cycle.
Studies show that with the use of a high dose Vitamin C IV the need for antibiotics can be prevented.
Use a vitamin C IV as a treatment or even prevention when you’re coming down with a cold. Strengthening your immune system is the goal, it is a preventative method that can stop a cold before it starts and spreads around the home.
It’s very easy to get started with IV Therapy.
There are formulas to begin with but we can customize it to your specific needs through the use of functional laboratories.
These labs can actually reveal what nutrients you may have a higher need for due to your unique chemistry and challenges.
Just think about how good you can feel if more of your body’s vitamins and minerals get to where they’re supposed to go!
