IV Therapy: Does it really make an impact? You get to decide.

We recognize that vitamins, mineral, amino acids and other nutrients when given intravenously circumvent the uncertainty of absorption in the gastrointestinal tract and delivers them directly into the bloodstream. We offer several different types of IV treatments depending upon the ailment in a particular patient.  

Vitamins and minerals provide the raw materials necessary for our cells to function properly. Usually, we can get these nutrients through our diet if we are conscientious of what we eat. However, sometimes even a great diet may not translate to proper nutrition at the cellular level. There can be many causes of this, which may include poor digestion, food sensitivities, chronic inflammation, poor immune function, or any sickness. A vicious cycle ensues. Our cells are not healthy and they need nutrients to heal. But, the nutrients are not available because our cells are too weak to transport the vitamins and minerals to where they are needed. This scenario describes a typical situation in which intravenous vitamin (IV) therapy would be indicated.

Intravenous therapy takes place when medicine is injected directly into the veins and often works more swiftly and successfully than medicine given through the stomach. In the past, a very limited amount drugs could be administered intravenously, but in today‚Äôs health care world the number has been greatly extended with applications for many additional disease treatments. Especially in cases of pneumonia and diphtheria, the rapid passage of the medicine through the body using intravenous therapy gives it an advantage over the much slower process of ingesting medication orally.  

There are numerous conditions that IV therapy and chelation therapy (injection of a solution into the bloodstream that binds with metals and passes through the kidneys for removal from the body) can improve. Patients Medical can tailor the IV protocol by varying the type and amounts of nutrients.   It can even be used periodically in healthy people to enhance overall well-being.  It is impossible orally to attain the high levels of nutrients that IV vitamins are capable of delivering. Oral vitamins and nutrients are converted or broken down in the stomach and liver during the absorption process. High doses often cause gastrointestinal symptoms and diarrhea. IV nutrients go directly into the bloodstream in an unaltered, safe form that is very well tolerated, with minimal or no side effects.

Intravenous vitamin C is especially effective in fighting viruses and cancer cells while being completely safe for all normal cells. It is because of this characteristic that IV vitamin C is particularly useful in knocking out the viruses of the common cold, flu, and sore throat. Patients often start feeling better within hours of administration.
