The Most Efficient & Effective Way to Deliver Nutrients to Your Body
IV Therapy treatments can help boost your immune system, especially if you’re run down, stressed out or generally feel exhausted and in need of a pick-me-up. Many patients have found it highly effective in reducing a variety of troubling symptoms including fatigue, headaches, muscle, pain brain fog, fibromyalgia and much more.
The Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy
IV vitamin therapy is so effective as a fatigue treatment and pain reliever because it injects essential, healing substances directly into the gut. A few benefits include:
IV Vitamin Therapy is the fastest, most efficient way to deliver vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, and other vital nutrients to your circulatory system.
Why IV Vitamin Therapy Over Oral Vitamins
When IV Vitamin Therapy is infused straight to the bloodstream via a vein, you get the benefit of 100% absorption, allowing these nutrients to be immediately available for cellular use. IV Vitamin Therapy can also safely deliver higher doses of nutritional vitamins that would not be tolerated if taken orally. When it comes to preventing illness, increasing energy, and slowing the effects of ageing, IV Vitamin Therapy from Mitchell Medical Group will give your immune system the fuel it needs to maximize your health.
One of the most powerfully effective treatments that we have found for treating chronic illnesses like chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia is the use of IV vitamin therapy.
The difference between oral vitamins and injected vitamins has to do with the gut’s ability to absorb the vitamins. Oral vitamins are swallowed and end up in the stomach, where the stomach’s acid has to do some heavy work to break down the vitamin pills and then can start to slowly absorb the nutrients. In many cases, the oral vitamins swallowed are only absorbed 30%; this can be even lower in patients taking acid blockers or who have digestive problems.
What is IV Vitamin Therapy?
IV Vitamin Therapy is a method of infusing vitamins, amino acids, and antioxidants directly into your body. The difference between oral vitamins and injected vitamins has to do with the gut’s ability to absorb the vitamins. The first IV vitamin drips were developed and administered by Dr. John Myers in the 1970s.
While you’re undergoing an IV vitamin drip, your body is receiving a higher concentration of the vitamins themselves. A vitamin that’s taken by mouth gets broken down in the stomach and digestive tract, and is limited on how much can be absorbed (50 per cent) – this can be even lower in patients taking acid blockers or who have digestive problems. In contrast, when the vitamin is given through an IV (intravenously), it’s absorbed in a much higher percentage (90 per cent) because it goes right into the body without the need for digestive help.
What’s In Our IV Vitamin Drip?
Our high dose vitamin injections incorporate key vitamins that improve the immune system and address nutrient deficiency making it an ideal therapy for people with vitamin deficiencies. Essentially the IV therapies (also known as Myer’s cocktails) dramatically jump-start the body’s systems which can markedly shorten the time it takes to begin feeling better.
Our IV Vitamin Therapy Includes the Following Vitamins:
The ingredients for the therapy are adjusted specifically to match each patient’s unique needs. Two of the most popular vitamin injections are Vitamin B12 (an important component of cell reproduction, blood formation, and protein or tissue synthesis) and Lipotropic injections (to help encourage weight loss).
Why Do We Need Vitamin Supplements at All?
We all know that vitamins are critical for good health. In vitamin deficient countries – even our own – a lack of key vitamins can lead to bone loss or fractures, chronic infections, and even neurologic symptoms. But with the fortification of foods with vitamins, true vitamin deficiencies are rare. Does this mean that we still don’t need extra vitamin supplementation?
This is where it gets tricky: in the perfect world with the perfect body and immune system, a person would only need the natural fruits and vegetables that nature designed for us – I sometimes refer to this as the Biblical diet that Adam and Eve had in the Garden of Eden.
But in our real world, most of us have been at the disadvantage of getting nutrients that have been extensively processed and so are devoid of the full array of vitamins and minerals.
As a result, when we develop illnesses our body’s immune system isn’t at full capacity to combat infections or correct immune imbalances.
Eating foods that contain high doses of natural vitamins and minerals is a great start, but ingested vitamins must go through the harsh environment of the digestive tract, which breaks them down and decreases their absorption rate to only 30%. This percentage rate can be even less if you are taking acid blockers or have digestive problems.
The body depends on receiving vitamins and minerals from the diet because it cannot make them itself. IV vitamin therapy helps if your body is low in vitamins and minerals due to not consuming the proper foods or your body is unable to metabolize them correctly.
