A healthy diet rich in vitamins and minerals is the best way to nourish your body.
There are instances though, when the body has trouble obtaining these nutrients through natural digestive functions. Conditions such as stress, a 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.
In these cases, injecting those nutrients directly into the blood stream may be the best option to ensure that your body is getting what it needs. This is the goal of IV nutritional therapy.
Types of IV Therapy
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.
This treatment helps remove heavy metals from the blood stream like iron, lead, and calcium to reduce the risk of heart attacks, strokes, senility, and certain types of cancer.
High Dose Vitamin C
Although this vitamin is commonly found in supplement form, an IV injection can provide a much higher dose than what can be obtained by taking it orally. Vitamin C is used to fight chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
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.
