IV Vitamin & Nutrient Therapy
Many vitamin and mineral supplements are not well absorbed by the body. For some people, barriers exist in the gastrointestinal tract to allow for adequate absorption. Intravenous infusion allows for much higher doses of these nutrients to be infused directly into a vein.
IV therapy with nutrients is an extremely valuable treatment since we can deliver very large doses of nutrients safely into a vein that would not be tolerated if administered orally. Vitamins, minerals, amino acids and certain other nutrients can have an incredibly potent drug-like effect when given directly into a vein, but without the side effects often seen with prescription medications. All of the nutrients we use are natural and safe to be administered intravenously.
IV therapy with nutrients may be needed only a few times, or needed weekly for an extended period of time. The benefits and specific regime are dependent on the individual patient and the problem(s) being treated.
Listed below are some of the common problems that we treat at the with IV nutrients. This should not be considered a complete list of indications, but will give you an idea of what types of problems IV therapy with nutrients may help:
- Alzheimer’s Dementia
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
- Arthritis – Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Inflammatory Arthritis
- Asthma – Acute and Chronic
- Autoimmune Illness
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Candida Albicans
- Celiac Disease
- Diabetes Mellitus
- Immune Disorders
- Lyme Disease
- Macular Degeneration
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Parkinson’s Disease
IV therapy with nutrients may be used for a variety of other reasons such as just feeling “unwell.” We often employ a trial infusion with the “Meyer’s Protocol”, a general vitamin infusion, to see if we see some improvement.
