IV THERAPY THURSDAYS at NaturaMed Natural Family Medicine
What is IV Therapy?
When a person receives an IV vitamin treatment, they’re receiving a liquid mixture of vitamins and minerals through a small tube inserted into a vein (IV = intravenous)
While you’re undergoing an IV vitamin drip, your body is receiving a higher concentration of the vitamins themselves. A vitamin that’s taken by mouth gets broken down in the stomach and digestive tract, and is limited on how much can be absorbed (50 percent) and even this varies with age, metabolism, health status, genetics and the quality of the supplement. If, however, the vitamin is given through an IV, it’s absorbed at a much higher percentage (90 percent) as it circulates through your bloodstream leading to better uptake into your cells.
What health conditions can IV therapy treat and is it right for me?
Vitamin infusions are used for a wide variety of health concerns. Conditions that have responded positively IV nutritional therapy include asthma, migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, pain, allergies, and sinus and respiratory tract infection. We also use it for quick re-hydration after an intense sporting event, such as running a marathon, to cure a hangover, for improved skin clarity, or increasing energy levels.
Additionally, we use IV therapy to prevent and recover from illnesses such as the flu and for people who cannot eat enough food due to illness such as irritable bowel and inflammatory bowel conditions like ulcerative colitis and Crohns disease.
