Intravenous (IV) Nutrition Therapy
Intravenous nutrients can make a significantly positive difference in optimizing good health. Injecting nutrients directly into the blood stream may be the best option to ensure that your body is getting what it needs.
Conditions such as stress, medical illness, or food intolerances can inhibit the absorption of important substances such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, folic acid, glutathione, or biotin. The cells lining the intestine which absorb what is taken in orally may themselves be depleted of key nutrients causing them to function poorly. When this occurs, proper absorption of nutrients and vitamins obtained orally, either in dietary or capsule form, is often hindered. With aging, the absorption process becomes less efficient and toxins build up from improper digestion.
In these cases, IV nutrition has the potential to help in a number of disorders and dysfunctions and to aid in repair of biological damage at the cellular level. This is the goal of IV nutritional therapy.
Types of IV Therapy
IV nutrition programs are a quick and effective way to help ameliorate harm caused by poor nutrition, toxins, and free radicals. There are a number of IV therapies designed to either treat specific conditions or just promote overall wellness. Here are some of the most common:
This particular blend was developed in the 1970's by Doctor John Myers at Johns Hopkins University. It has been used to treat a number of conditions such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, muscle spasm, asthma, hives, congestive heart failure, chest pain, infections, and senile dementia.
This substance improves liver and brain functions, leading to improved memory while helping to lower the risk of conditions such as dementia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, neuropathy, and liver disease.
As one of the most important water soluble vitamins, Vitamin C is an excellent antioxidant and helps boost the immune system. Vitamin C levels can be reduced with smoking or oral contraceptive use. Vitamin C is used to fight chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.
Executive Stress Formula
In the 1950's, a cardiologist noticed his waiting room chairs showed signs of excessive wear on their arms. In a study published early 1980's, Drs. Friedman and Rosenman described the Type A Personality which tended to be more ambitious, competitive, time conscious, and easily angered. They described this personality as more likely to be attracted to executive work and subject to stress related diseases such as heart attacks. The Executive Stress Formula is a blend of vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids which provide the raw materials to help mitigate and repair damage from stress at the cellular level.
Helps those suffering from diabetes by improving insulin sensitivity and lowering blood sugar levels.
Encourages the body to release single oxygen molecules into the blood stream to kill viruses, bacteria, cancer cells, and make it easier for the liver and kidneys to remove toxins.
