IV Nutrient Therapy

Intravenous Vitamin Therapy

What is intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy?

Receiving vitamins intravenously is a method of administering vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. It is recommended for a wide range of conditions such as: 

  • Cancer
  • Hypertension 
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD)
  • Asthma
  • Fibromyalgia 
  • Chronic Fatigue Sydrome
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • and Macular Degeneration

IV nutritional infusions can also boost energy levels and stimulate the immune system, as well as helping with stress, jetlag and sleep problems.

Pros of IV Vitamin Therapy

Vitality Solutions IV Nutrient Therapy can restore an individual’s micronutrients as well as nutritional status using IV vitamin treatment. Studies have confirmed that IV vitamins are an efficient solution to improve many health conditions and also reach health goal objectives. With the efficient replenishment of vitamins and minerals otherwise bypassed with the digestion system, the therapy allows for 100% absorption. Generally multivitamins need to be chewed or swallowed whole, which travels to the stomach, past the esophagus where the digestive system process starts.

The digestion continues as the broken-down multivitamin journeys through the small intestine – where it absorbs up to only 20% of the nutrients and vitamins they contain. Because of the break-down process the traveling nutrients take a trip through the blood stream and other body organs, thus further lessening the benefit from oral multivitamin treatments.

When the body has trouble absorbing proteins, fatty acids, or minerals through natural digestive processes, IV Nutritional therapy critically preserves cellular health. A number of other circumstances can be cited as appropriate for IV therapy. Consider the nutritional demands precipitated by a chronic stress condition, or a sustained medical illness. To rebound from a sustained stress interval or serious illness, patients require extra nutrition.

IV sustenance also assists people who suffer from a food intolerance. The IV services provided here at the Vitality Solutions can also benefit patients with lowered nutrient absorption secondary to prescription drugs. Did you know that prescription medications can block a patient’s uptake and proper utilisation of calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, folic acid, glutathione, and biotin?

Patients will also benefit in recovery from acute viral infections for eg. Influenza or an episode of Ross River Virus, Glandular Fever (Epstein Barr Virus) and more. There is also evidence that supports the recovery from longterm lingering viruses, like those mentioned and tick borne illnesses, like Lyme disease.

For all of the patient scenarios outlined above, consider embracing intravenous administration of nutrients to ensure that your body is getting what it needs.
