Do You Really Need Something Extra?
Let’s assume you’re the ideal patient. You eat your vegetables, you don’t smoke, you drink in moderation, you avoid junk food, and you exercise every day. Do you, the role model of healthy living, really need anything more?
Even a great diet may not translate to proper nutrition at the cellular level. There can be many reasons for 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.
For any of these reasons and more, you may need something I recommend called intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy. Now, this might sound a bit strange at first. But consider what I’ve just shown you… it’s possible to lead a very healthy lifestyle and still be nutrient-deficient.
What IV therapy allows us to do is directly give you the nutrients your body is starving for. This often works more swiftly and successfully than medicine given through the stomach. In the past, a very limited amount of drugs could be administered intravenously, but today we can not only treat diseases and help you recover faster, but an IV also gives you an advantage over the much slower process of ingesting medication orally.
There are numerous conditions that IV therapy and chelation therapy can improve. (Chelation is when we give you a solution that binds with heavy metals and takes them safely through your kidneys for removal.) They offer us the ability to individualize the content and amount of ingredients in order to tailor to your needs. When we do this, IV therapy can be very beneficial and help people manage certain conditions. You can even use IV therapy periodically if you’re healthy to enhance your overall well-being.
It’s difficult to orally 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’s 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.
IV Therapy for Anti-Aging
Poor nutrition, chronic stress, improper sleep patterns and lack of physical activity all contribute to premature aging, loss of skin elasticity, weight gain, abdominal fat, anxiety/depression, digestive disorders, skin problems, fatigue, and illness. Learning how to manage your lifestyle is key to slowing the aging process and retaining youth. A healthy diet high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytochemicals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, fiber and amino acids, along with proper sleep, exercise, and stress management techniques, are all necessary for retaining youth and slowing the aging process.
Even if you eat well, your body might not be absorbing the vitamins and minerals it needs to fight the aging process. IV therapy boosts the antioxidant vitamin and mineral levels in your body much more effectively than oral supplements. You can choose from a variety of IV cocktails, each designed to help your body repair damage, prevent aging, and recover its youthful vigor.
Myers’ Cocktail: IV vitamin and mineral therapy developed in the 1970s by John Myers, M.D., a physician at Johns Hopkins University. The “cocktail” is indicated for chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, muscle spasm, asthma, hives, congestive heart failure, angina (chest pain), infections, and senile dementia.
Glutathione IV: Powerful antioxidant found predominately in the brain and liver. When given intravenously it improves liver and brain function. Often used for memory enhancement, dementia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, neuropathy, and liver disease.
Banana Bag: Infusion is a multi-vitamin infusion that is commonly given to undernourished and/or nutrient-depleted individuals. The infusion contains Vitamin A, B1, B2, B5, B6, Vitamin C, Niacinamide, Vitamin E, Potassium, Folic Acid, Biotin, and Vitamin B12. When these vitamins are mixed together, they’re a bright yellow color, which is how the infusion got its name.
