Intravenous infusion (IV) and intramuscular (IM) 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.
IV therapy ensures 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 un-absorbable after a certain dosage because the GI system becomes saturated.
Also, many oral nutrients can 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.
IV therapy helps a wide variety of goals.
Another major benefit of IV therapy is to help build 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.
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.
IV therapy has proven to be safe and effective when administered appropriately.
This means practitioners have to use screening guidelines to ensure patient safety. IV therapy infusions have been a part of medicine for a century as a rehydration mechanism and as a drug delivery mechanism. It has gained traction in being a modern tool for health and wellness.
Part of what makes IV therapy infusions so safe is that you are administering things that already exist in the body’s biology. You already have B vitamins, magnesium and vitamin C in your body. The reason IV nutrient therapy needs to be administered by a practitioner that understands physiology is that minerals have cardio-active properties, meaning they can affect the heart. You must know which minerals will have effect and how to balance them appropriately for heart health and safety.
IV therapy combines biochemistry, physiology, anatomy, pharmacology, pharmacognosy, phlebotomy, emergency medicine and clinical skills.
You don’t want just anyone giving you an infusion. You want a competent, experienced, high level practitioner. Any injection with a needle carries a small risk of localized bruising and infection, but our trained staff takes every precaution against this.
You also want a IV provider that only uses high quality IV ingredients.
There are thousands of places to source compounded IV medications and nutrients around the world. We purchase only 100% American-made and certified products from accredited pharmacies. Our products come from pharmacies with over 20 years of clinical practice and pharmaceutical experience. We believe the treatment is only as effective as the individual materials that create it, and we trust our materials with our own health.
These therapies are effective when used appropriately for so many different conditions, and there is new research to complement the existing old safety research to update the best implementation practices.
