IV Nutrient Infusions
Intravenous (IV) Therapy or Intravenous Micronutrient Therapy (IVNT), is a treatment method which uses nutrients such as vitamins or minerals and administers these directly into the bloodstream typically through a vein in the arm. There are several advantages of giving the body nutrients by the intravenous method.
First, by injecting substances directly into the bloodstream you eliminate any alteration in the nutrients which may occur from the actions of digestive enzymes Second, the amount of nutrients in the blood can reach much higher, more therapeutic levels faster than is possible by absorbing nutrients through the Gastro-Intestinal system. This may be particularly important if a patient is suffering from a GI system disorder where absorption of nutrients is impaired In some cases the IV use of micronutrients permits much higher levels than are possible even with a healthy GI system.
The vitamins and minerals used in IVNT are co-factors in biochemical reactions in every cell in our bodies. As a result, IVNT can be used as an adjunct in any condition where low levels of nutrients or other nutritional deficiencies are suspected. The benefits to IVNT include
- The Correction of nutritional and biochemical deficiencies
- Direct cellular nutrition
- Bypasses intestinal malabsorption
- The Improvement of cells and the immune system
- Immediate therapeutic effects
- Condition specific IV therapeutic effects
- Decreasing inflammation
- Detoxifying the system
