Benefits of IV Nutrition Therapy

Unfortunately micronutrient depletion is common and often out of our control. Common reasons for nutrient depletion include poor farming, declining soil mineral content, and toxic chemicals applied to soil. Intracellular nutrient depletion is also common and can be determined using red blood cell mineral testing. IV treatment replenishes nutrients the body is lacking and overcomes nutrient depletion caused by both these internal and external factors.  This type of nutrient depletion affects everyone, but can be easily mitigated using IV nutrition therapy.

IV nutrition therapy can also be beneficial for those undergoing surgical procedures. Nutritional supplementation in the period before and after surgery can have a significant impact on surgical outcome. Adding vitamins and nutrients to the body will boost immunity and promote recovery and healing. It can also reduce bruising, swelling, inflammation, and oxidation generated by surgical and anesthetic agents. Vitamin C is vital in collagen production, which is a key component of wound healing. IV treatment incorporates Vitamin C which boosts the body’s collagen production thereby encouraging wound healing.

It protects the body from toxins and helps it recover from common toxicities. Toxins are everywhere and many lifestyle habits promote toxicities such as alcohol consumption. IV nutrition therapy is a great way to detoxify and protect organs from alcohol toxicity while repairing past damage from alcohol consumption. Other toxicities that IV treatment is beneficial for include pesticides, chlorinated insecticides, fluoride, herbicide, lead, radiation, carbon monoxide, and many more. Toxin exposure is inevitable, but IV treatment can mitigate the harmful effects of exposure and safeguard the body against future toxin overload.

Issues with malabsorption cause nutritional depletions which can be overcome using IV treatment. These issues stem from the gut and include gluten/celiac disease, poor stomach acid production, lack of digestive enzymes, gut inflammation, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, obesity, and many others. Protein-energy malnutrition is associated with a significant impairment of cell-mediated immunity, phagocyte function, complement system, secretory immunoglobulin antibody concentrations, and cytokine production deficiency of single nutrients which also results in altered immune responses (observed even when the deficiency state is relatively mild). IV nutrition bypasses the ailing gut to give the body nutrition without relying on gut absorption since the nutrients are put directly into the bloodstream.

Summary

IV nutrition therapy is a quick, easy, and natural way to replenish and rehydrate the body. IV nutrition is for everyone and can be tailored depending on the specific benefits or nutrients the patient is seeking. There are many benefits of IV nutrition therapy from feeling better, having more energy, and rehydrating the body, to safeguarding against toxin build up, recovering from surgery or intense exercise, and overcoming nutrient depletion. The process takes 45-60 minutes to complete and provides rapid results, with no side effects, and allows the patient to continue with their normal daily routine. IV treatment can be used by anyone for nearly anything, and everyone who uses IV treatment is sure to experience better health.
