What Is IV Nutrition Therapy?
Intravenous Therapy or IV Therapy can ensure that the body obtains an adequate supply of vitamins and minerals to enable proper functioning of cells. While a proper diet can provide sufficient vitamins and minerals, various metabolic disorders prevent the cells from obtaining the nutrition they require. This can lead to weakened and damaged cells that require supplemental nutrition to heal. In IV therapy, the nutrients are injected directly into the veins, allowing for easy absorption into the cells.
Conditions Treated with IV Nutrition Therapy
IV therapy may be used to treat a vast amount of medical conditions. The most common of these are:
Types of IV Therapy
Classic Myers Drip
Myers’ Cocktail is a mix of vitamins and minerals, developed by John Myers, and is used widely in the US to enhance the immune system, treat fatigue, help with allergies, and reduce the symptoms of Fibromyalgia and Asthma. The cocktail is administered intravenously, thus bypassing problems with digestion and providing a temporary energy production boost in your body.
Hydrogen Peroxide (H202)
The intravenous introduction of hydrogen peroxide in the body leads to the release of single oxygen molecules in the cells and bloodstream. The single oxygen molecule can destroy anaerobic viruses and bacteria, kill cancer cells, or oxidize toxins and make them easier for the liver and kidneys to process. This drip is a natural alternative to antibiotics and great for an astounding number of conditions.
Inflammation is linked to diagnoses like Leaky Gut, Gluten Sensitivity and Fibromyalgia. This drip is designed to decrease generalized inflammation related to anything from sports recovery to chronic conditions.
Energy and Sports Drip
TEnhances any sports performance and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This drip helped one client shave 45 minutes off from his marathon time!
This drip is a chelation with either EDTA or DMPS. Think of it like a little magnet that goes through the body and attracts the toxins and heavy metals like lead and mercury and draws them out. Chelation therapy is also thought to help reduce the occurrence of arteriosclerosis and, therefore, may be effective in preventing heart attacks, strokes, senility, and cancers.
Will reduce stress and anxiety, calming the most stressed person while replacing important minerals and vitamins.
Poly PVA/ALA Drip
Administered intravenously, Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) attaches itself to free radicals and, therefore, is thought to be an effective defense against cancer. It increases levels of Vitamins C and E, coenzyme Q10, and glutathione. Alpha Lipoic Acid improves insulin sensitivity and lowers blood sugar, helping diabetics by treating damaged nerves and arteries. ALA can also be administered to people suffering from Hepatitis B or C and other liver diseases.
Silver Hydrosol Drip
Colloidal silver is a powerful, and natural antibiotic and disinfectant. Studies performed at UCLA School of Medicine confirm that colloidal silver kills harmful bacteria, viral, and fungal organisms just minutes after contact.
Intravenous Curry! Drip
Most of turmeric’s health benefits are attributed to the trio of yellow-orange chemicals known as the curcuminoids, or sometimes simply as curcumin. Scientists have established that curcumin is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. In fact, it appears to be as effective an anti-inflammatory as many over-the-counter drugs, lending itself useful for treatment of inflammatory conditions, cancer, liver pathologies, colds and flu, as well as auto-immune conditions.
Also known as the plumber of the arteries, phosphatidylcholine is known for its positive effects on atherosclerosis and increase in peripheral circulation, lending itself useful for hyperlipoproteinarmia, angina, PVD, nephrotic syndrome, liver disease, fatty embolism and cognitive dysfunction.
Artesunate IV (Artemisinin) Drip
Similar to curcumin in its immunomodulatory effects, this class of compounds has activity against malaria, cancer cells and schistosomiasis.
Glutathione can be administered alone or added to to most of the IVs for immune support and to boost detoxification.
Magnesium Chloride Push
Magnesium is the second most plentiful cation within cellular fluids. It is an important activator of many enzyme systems and deficits are accompanied by a variety of functional disturbances such as Cardiovascular disease, hypertension, anxiety, and PMS.
