Boost Immunity and Get Direct Nutrients With Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Therapy

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.

Why Vitamins Straight to Your Blood Stream Significantly Improves Immunity and Provides Health Benefits

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. 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’s health care world the number has been greatly extended with applications for many additional disease treatments.

How IV Vitamin Therapy Improves Many Medical Conditions, From Asthma to Diabetes

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. When this is done, IV therapy can be beneficial for a wide range of medical conditions. Click on any of these conditions to read how IV therapy can help.


IV Therapy for Fibromyalgia

People suffering with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue are believed to have impaired cellular function—particularly in the way muscle cells handle calcium and phosphate. This, in turn, stimulates painful contractions and muscle spasms. To address these problems, we prescribe a full regimen of therapies, including IV doses of B vitamins, magnesium, vitamin C, and other nutrients proven to boost energy, improve tissue repair, and relieve stress Get Additional Information on Fibromyalgia Here


IV Therapy for Asthma

The use of IV nutrient therapy for asthma was begun in the late 1980s, soon after the first research results were published involving the administration of magnesium through an IV for the treatment of acute asthma. Most have found that magnesium sulfate, via IV infusion, is very beneficial for the treatment of asthma. Get Additional Information on Asthma Here

Intravenous, high-dosage vitamin C also reduces the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation for those receiving conventional medical therapies.
