For many people, absorption of nutrients is compromised due to chronic illness (such as cancer or auto-immune disease), or damage to the gastro-intestinal track lining (as with food allergies or bowel disease.) By delivering nutrients intravenously the GI tract is bypassed, thereby guaranteeing total absorption and full benefit. The ultimate goal is to enhance immune function, increase energy, and assist the body in detoxification.
IV therapy uses high dose vitamins, minerals, and natural substances injected directly into a vein. IV therapy allows for high concentrations of nutrients to enter cells easier. Nutrients are necessary to heal and repair cellular damage caused by chronic disease or environmental toxins.
IV therapy can be administered two ways:
Multivitamin and Mineral drip: used for the majority of conditions. Specific nutrients and dosage will vary depending on the condition
Myers cocktail: A 15 minutes IV “push” incredible at boosting the immune system (especially when fighting off a cold/flu)
High dose vitamin C: Important for destruction of cancer cells and eliminating chronic viral conditions
Phophatidylcholine: Incredible for liver detoxification and white matter support such as with dementia/Alzheimer’s disease
High dose anti-oxidants: Helps detoxify and repair damage caused by toxicities or chronic illness
Amino acid nutrients: Used for protein deficient conditions such as with end stage cancer, or crohn’s/colitis
Magnesium: Almost always stops a migraine within 30 minutes
