What is all the buzz about intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy?

The forerunner of nutrient therapy began with Nobel-prize laureate, Linus Pauling with his ground-breaking research on the benefits of high dose vitamin C. The caveat is that there is a limit of how much we can absorb of vitamin C in a single oral dose. Today, IV therapy can effectively deliver a wide range of high dose vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the bloodstream.

IV therapy can deliver high concentrations of nutrients to create an efficient uptake by the cells that need them most. This process helps to kick-start metabolic healing and recovery.

Many pharmaceutical medications deplete various nutrients. Over time, nutrient depletions can affect optimal health. There are a range of common medications that deplete vitamins and minerals, such as statins, prednisone, acid-reflux medications, birth control pills, synthroid, among others.  The side-effects of the nutrient depletions can be supported with IV therapy. Any person with digestive compromise are also good candidates for by-passing the oral route for nutrient replenishment. 

IV therapy can be used for a wide range of health conditions, i.e. chronic low energy, heavy metal overload, frequent colds and flus, depression, cancer care, autoimmunity, fertility, asthma, bronchitis, migraines, rheumatoid arthritis, macular degeneration. For athletes, formulations are tailored for training optimization, and race recovery.
