Intravenous (IV) nutrition is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into a patient’s bloodstream. Bypassing the digestive system is the main advantage of IV nutrition. When substances are given orally they must be processed through the stomach and the intestines. Many substances may be rendered inactive in the digestive tract, or may not be well absorbed due to poor intestinal function. By directly administering nutrients to the body higher than normal blood levels can be achieved. These increased levels can provide an immediate therapeutic response by correcting deficiencies that may arise from a disease state.
Scientific research has demonstrated that a variety of conditions can benefit from the use of IV nutrition. A few of the conditions that may be helped using IV nutrition techniques include hypertension, COPD, asthma, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, hepatitis, and even the common cold. Even if you're healthy, IV administration of a wide range of vitamins and minerals is an extremely effective way to boost your nutritional status and prevent illness.
All of the intravenous protocols used at Key To Life Med Spa have been thoroughly researched and have been shown to be effective in the treatment of certain conditions. By practicing this type of “evidence-based medicine” we can custom tailor our IV infusions to ensure maximal effectiveness combined with minimal side effects.
Indications for the use of intravenous nutrient therapy include:
Acute muscle spasm
Upper respiratory tract infections
Seasonal allergies and rhinitis
Acute asthma attacks
Chronic fatigue syndrome
Intravenous vitamin and nutrient infusions may be administered once or twice a week. Often a few weeks of therapy will improve symptoms related to chronic disease and allow transition to the appropriate oral supplements. IV vitamin and nutrient infusions may offer the best alternative to improve your health and wellness naturally. The benefits and specific regimen are dependent on the individual patient and the problem(s) being treated. IV therapy with nutrients may be needed only a few times, or needed weekly for an extended period of time.
