Why Should I Use IV Vitamin Therapy

Why Should I Use IV Vitamin Therapy?

IV vitamin therapy has been gaining exposure in the news and media. Most likely, you know what it is but want to know “Why Should I Use IV Vitamin Therapy?” There are a number of conditions that people use IV vitamin therapy for, but why don’t they just eat better, take supplements, or get a shot? Numerous environmental and physiological factors play a large role in why IV vitamin therapy is the best way to achieve optimum nutrient status. Sometimes even perfect eating habits do not translate into proper nutrition at the cellular level for many reasons.

 

Stress

According to the National Institute of Health, stress affects over 40 million adults in the United States.  Environmental, physiological and psychological stressors are detrimental to health and well being. In order to cope with stress, many people turn to caffeine, sugar, cigarettes, and alcohol. These methods to “cope” with the stress in turn raise blood pressure, interfere with digestion, skyrocket blood sugar, then cause it to crash, leaving one feeling even worse. The “coping” mechanisms of the body are incredible, but deplete stores of important nutrients. Magnesium, vitamin C, and B vitamins are among some that are depleted and the reason that stress can cause restlessness, illness and fatigue. In many cases, people will have a turning point and seek a lifestyle change. The implementation of healthy eating, exercise and supplements can make a positive impact in life. However, many people still feel fatigued and other symptoms that they don’t even realize they have experienced until they subside.

Malabsorption

There are many Gastrointestinal disorders that affect body’s ability to absorbs nutrients. Some of these disorders include; celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s Disease, lactose intolerance, ulcerative colitis. In addition to these disorders,the lack of nutrient dense foods, overuse of antibiotics and other medications that destroy the “good bacteria” in the intestines are causing many people to suffer from malabsorption. Malabsorption has to do the the inability of the intestine to absorb nutrients adequately into the bloodstream. This can cause drop in electrolytes and vitamin B-12, resulting in muscle cramping, lack of energy and potentially anemia.

Dietary Restrictions

Anytime overall caloric intake is decreased or certain foods are omitted from the diet vitamin and nutrients are decreased as well. Replenishing nutrients to support a dietary change can help avoid many symptoms. If dietary restrictions are made to support weight loss,It is important to maintain a good nutrient status to keep the metabolism high through a low calorie diet and replenish what may be lost during exercise. It is common for muscle cramping, fatigue, and lightheadedness to occur due to loss of electrolytes, B vitamins, and amino acids.

General Surgery

Surgery puts a lot of stress on the body. Drawing from all nutrient stores for wound healing can cause a deficiency in many nutrients. Post surgery is a time when the body is especially susceptible to illness making it extremely important to make sure it has what it needs to stay healthy.  A deficiency in vitamin C is especially common, as vitamin C is essential in tissue repair.

Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery patients are among individuals who experience some of the greatest benefits from IV vitamin therapy. With bariatric surgery, the majority of the small intestine is bypassed. The small intestine is the primary site of absorption for many nutrients. Vitamin B, iron and minerals deficiencies are some of the most common that occur with bariatric surgery.

 

So WHY IV Vitamin Therapy?

It is impossible to orally obtain the high levels of nutrients that IV vitamin therapy is capable of delivering. When high doses of vitamins are consumed orally, they often result in gastrointestinal upset and diarrhea. Only about 10-25% of what is taken orally is delivered to the cells. When delivered intravenously, the nutrients are administered directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the stomach and intestines. This avoids any issues with absorption and allows high doses to be delivered safely and effectively. Most people notice that they feeling better within hours of administration. Vitamins and minerals are the foundation of which cells need to function properly.
