What is Intravenous Nutrient (IV) Therapy?

Intravenous nutrient therapy involves the administration of vital nutrients, minerals, amino acids, anti-oxidants or herbal extracts directly into bloodstream.

Why administer nutrients intravenous?

IVs allow for immediate and complete cellular availability, precision dosing and the capacity for higher doses that would otherwise upset the stomach if taken orally. IV administration allows nutrients to bypass the digestive and liver detoxification systems to be delivered directly to the body’s cells. This allows higher quantities of nutrients to be available to cells in more predictable quantities compared to oral administration

In cases where digestion or absorption is compromised, IVs are the ideal method to ensure the body is receiving the nutrients required for continued function and healing.

Which conditions respond well to IV Therapy?

Nutrient deficiencies arise even when following a healthy diet due to problems such as impaired absorption (e.g., bowel diseases, chronic diarrhea), decreased bio-availability (e.g., intestinal bacteria over-growth) or increased use of nutrients (e.g., chronic infections, chronic stress and in athletes). Chronic illness, impaired immune function, accelerated aging and chronic fatigue may all result from nutrient deficiencies.

The following conditions are commonly treated with IV therapy:

  • Acute infections such as the common cold or flu
  • Chronic infection, immune support, infection prevention
  • Joint pain, arthritis or other inflammatory conditions
  • Wound healing
  • Cancer Therapy Support
  • Mental Health: Anxiety, Depression, Addictions and withdrawal symptoms
  • Autoimmune Diseases: Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Grave’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, Celiac Disease, Crohn’s Disease, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Meniere’s Disease, Reynaud’s Disease, Sjorgren’s syndrome, Scleroderma and others
  • Aging
  • Asthma
  • Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Cardiovascular Health: High blood pressure, Arrhythmias
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Migraines
  • Neurological conditions: Neuropathy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease
  • Enhanced athletic performance
