What is Intravenous Therapy?

Did you know that IV nutritional therapies can be more effective than taking supplements orally? An IV can get nutrients right to the cells for immediate absorption and effectiveness. Completely safe and incredibly easy, IV therapy can bypass issues like nutrients not being absorbed properly.

Intravenous therapy is an infusion of liquids containing hormones, vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants, and minerals directly into the bloodstream to be administered immediately by the circulatory system.  An IV is inserted directly into the vein thereby allowing the nutrient rich liquid to enter the body much quicker and more effectively than oral medication.

IV Therapy works to aid those with…

  • Neurological conditions
  • Autoimmune conditions (such as rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, Psoriasis, etc.)
  • Chronic fatigue, anxiety, toxicity, and depression
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Acute and chronic gastrointestinal illnesses (IBS, ulcerative colitis, etc.)
  • Severe, acute and chronic infectious diseases (such as Mononucleosis, influenza, herpes, etc.)
  • Cancer

As we age the intestines become compromised, stomach acid decreases, and nutrient absorption becomes more difficult. In addition, inflammatory bowel conditions, including yeast overgrowth, cause malabsorption.  With our IV Vitamin Therapy, patients’ nutrient levels rise more significantly and have tremendous effects on metabolism, energy, and disease prevention and treatment.
