IV Hydration, Vitamin and Nutrient Therapy
Oral supplements are effective, however there are certain circumstances that prevent them from making it to the cells of the body where they are needed. When taken orally, supplements pass into stomach first which is very acidic. They are broken down in the stomach and then move to the intestines where they are absorbed into the bloodstream. Once in the blood, they are taken to the liver where they are metabolized and finally move to the cells of the body.
There are a few ways that this process can be disrupted. Some supplements cannot be broken down or even absorbed once in the intestine. There are other factors like intestinal inflammation from candida, bacterial overgrowth or poor diet which will affect the absorption.
This is why intravenous (IV) administration of vitamins, minerals and amino acids is necessary. The IV method will deliver these substances directly to the cells via the bloodstream, bypassing the above steps. The people who most need supplements are the ones who have the hardest time absorbing. Malabsorption and other GI problems are so prevalent in our society today due to poor diets and use of prescription medications. The ability to administer nutrients by either intravenous (IV) or intramuscular (IM) will ensure consistent and high dose of delivery to the cells. Another advantage of IV administration is the ability to formulate specific protocols for various medical conditions. Some of the conditions treated with IV therapy are chronic fatigue, Lyme disease, Epstein Barr illness, mold toxicity, cancer, autoimmunity (Hashimoto, rheumatologic conditions, inflammatory bowel disease), migraines, acute illnesses (flu, virus, GI infections), heavy metal toxicity, MTHFR mutations and muscle spasms.
