Intravenous Vitamin Therapy

 

Intravenous (IV) nutrition is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into a patient's bloodstream. Bypassing the digestive system is the main advantage of IV nutrition. When substances are given orally they must be processed through the stomach and the intestines. Many substances may be rendered inactive in the digestive tract, or may not be well absorbed due to poor intestinal function. By directly administering nutrients to the body higher than normal blood levels can be achieved. These increased levels can provide an immediate therapeutic response by correcting deficiencies that may arise from a disease state.

Scientific research has demonstrated that a variety of conditions can benefit from the use of IV nutrition. A few of the conditions that may be helped using IV nutrition techniques include hypertension, COPD, asthma, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, hepatitis, and even the common cold. All of the intravenous protocols used at our Medical Center have been thoroughly researched in the scientific literature and have been shown to be effective in the treatment of certain conditions. By practicing this type of "evidence-based medicine" we can custom tailor our IV infusions to ensure maximal effectiveness combined with minimal side effects.
