What is IV Nutrition ?
IntraVenous Nutrient Therapy is the administering of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and anti-oxidants directly into the bloodstream. These nutrients are essential for normal body functioning towards health and optimum performance. It is a safe, powerful and innovative therapy that supports the resolution of numerous health problems such as infections, fatigue, heart disease and much more.
How is IVNT different from oral or intramuscular nutrition ?
Even if your digestion is not weakened, you can only absorb a minimal amount of vitamins from oral vitamin supplements. Food swallowed needs to be digested in the stomach, transported to the liver, metabolized and detoxified before it ends up in blood. Therefore, a minimal amount of the nutrients will reach the cells. Intramuscular (Injection) absorption is higher than that of oral, however, it still does not match the bio-availability of the intravenous route. Nutrients given by IV enter the bloodstream and immediately get pumped by the heart to the rest of the body.
Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Drips deliver vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly to the body for maximum absorption. This allows the nutrients to flood your body and nourish itself at the cellular level. By using this method we can safely deliver larger doses that would not otherwise be tolerated orally.
IV vitamin drips can be used both proactively to maintain optimum wellness and also to treat acute and chronic conditions.
Some of the specific benefits people may experience include increased energy, enhanced mood, improved sleep, decreased stress and anxiety, increased immunity, hydration, and muscle recovery.
Integrative Medicine (IM)
By using age-old experiences of eastern & alternative medicine and incorporating that with sound medical judgment, we devise an individualized plan for each client to encourage health and decrease the side effects of harmful chemicals.
IM uses scientifically studied and evidence-based alternative medical therapies like herbs, vitamins, biofeedback, yoga, and nutrition, combined with conventional medical therapies in order to encourage wellness. A strong physician-patient relationship and partnership alongside education and support constitute the goals, direction, and choices of therapies. Your physician may also employ emotional and energetic restoration of mind, body, and spirit. Creating this environment results in a more benign yet firm treatment process.
Our Integrative Medicine Model:
Family Medicine principles and practices combined with Osteopathy, Homeopathy, and neuro-endocrine and immune modulation. The goal is to get the body to natural physiologic balance.
Medical Consultation (MC)
Since absorption, liver metabolism, and kidney clearance are different, sensitivities and response to medicine differs amongst individuals. Our genetic testing can show which one of your medication are benefiting your conditions and which ones are causing an extra stress on your body. A complete evaluation of your medical conditions and history will prompt us to suggest different regimes of medication for you. Looking at pharmacokinetics and toxicities of your medication we then devise an alternate regimen. We also match your medication with supplements, which can replace them and devise an individualized plan to wean you off of some of your medication and switch you to supplements.
Disclaimer: We are not a primary care physician group and work alongside your physicians for adjustment and change of your medication. We do not provide primary care health services.
