Health and wellness is about balance and moderation
We find that one piece of this balance can be direct administration of nutrients when we need them most. IV infusion treatments deliver essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fluids to promote whole body health. Why choose IVs over oral supplementation? You can’t equate oral intake dosage to IV dosage; they are completely different. It’s not a replacement, but it can add more benefits than we can ever achieve orally.
Efficient nutrient delivery
The major benefit of IV infusion therapy is the ability to give nutrients access to cells without gastrointestinal factors of interference. IVs don’t have GI interference issues such as stomach acid levels, enzyme availability, food pairing and blocking. We can give larger quantities of nutrients via IV than can be taken orally. This is because many oral water-soluble vitamins and minerals will become unabsorbable after a certain dosage because the GI system is saturated. Also, many oral nutrients cause unwanted side effects such as B vitamins, magnesium and vitamin C. When taken too frequently, timed incorrectly, or in too high of dosage orally, they can cause nausea, GI upset, diarrhea, and more. IV therapy isn’t prone to these concerns because the nutrients bypass the gut and are delivered directly to the bloodstream for complete absorption and no waste.
Help a wide variety of goals
Another major benefit of IV therapy is to help build up depleted nutrient stores in those with diseases and illness. These conditions cause the body to utilize existing nutrients for energy and fighting illness, leaving little to no reserve to keep for benefit. Those with conditions can use IV therapy to modify their disease symptoms, and feel better more consistently.
Those with GI problems like IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) can benefit in the short and long term. They can immediately receive and absorb nutrients they haven’t been able to for a long time due to decreased GI function. They can also store these essential nutrients to be able to improve cellular function, and heal their gut from the inside out, improving their digestive function in the long run.
Normally, well and healthy individuals with acute illnesses such as viral infection, stomach flu, bacterial infection, food poisoning, hangovers, and more can get the short term support they need from IV treatment. These treatments can rehydrate, strengthen the immune response, and get them back on their feet more quickly.
The average person with no chronic illnesses can still benefit from IV infusion treatments as they can provide hydration, immune support, toxic material removal, and improvements in energy. IV therapy can support every system in the body, from the immune system, to endocrine system (hormones), to cardio-metabolic system, gastrointestinal system, nervous system, and more. When our cells are equipped with adequate nutrition, we enhance the healing process, no matter where we are in that journey.
