what is an intravenous drip?
IV Nutritional Therapy (Intravenous Nutritional Therapy) is the process of administering nutrients into a vein directly into your bloodstream. Nutrients consist of a variety of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. We use IV treatments to boost energy, help the body detoxify, promote better sleep, enhance our immune system, decrease inflammation, support the liver, help combat chronic infections like Lyme Disease and cold viruses, enhance tissue repair in conditions such as macular degeneration (we call it Macular Regeneration) and others. Intravenous Nutritional Therapy (IVNT) is not designed to replace a healthy diet, nor is it a medical therapy. It is intended to supplement and enhance the delivery of micronutrients into your body for health and well-being. IVNT bypasses the digestive system, ensuring improved bioavailability and speed of delivery of nutrients to your cells. Every single cell in your body is alive, feed them with the necessary nutrients so that you can stay fit and healthy. We recommend that treatments are carried out once every 4-8 weeks, or as soon as you feel that your body needs a top up. Most people will feel the positive effects immediately after their IV therapy and will go on to feel a sense of general wellness and increased energy for several days.
What are the benefits?
IV nutrition is the fastest way available to replenish chronically depleted nutrient reserves. By infusing directly into a vein and bypassing the gastro-intestinal system, the nutrients are delivered directly to the cell. This way one can achieve vastly higher concentrations of nutrients without upsetting the stomach.
For example, you may be only able to take 2 or 3 grams of vitamin C by mouth, but we commonly infuse 40 to 50 grams of Vitamin C without digestive upset. Another example is iron. Oral iron is poorly absorbed, interacts with other nutrients and medications, and causes constipation. IV iron take 20 minutes to infuse and is extremely well tolerated by most clients. Benefits include a vast improvement to immune health, energy levels, symptoms of depression, anxiety and migraines to name just a few.
