Replenish Yourself with an Extra Boost of Vitamins and Minerals:Nutrient IV Therapy
You may be taking your oral daily supplements with the best of intentions to support your energy, strength, vitality, and overall well-being, yet still find yourself saying “why am I still so exhausted”? This is a question with many deep layers and a multitude of plausible reasons, but what if one of them is improper absorption and utilization of your oral nutritional supplements? Last month we wrote about the importance of gut health for optimal digestion, absorption, assimilation, and utilization of macro and micronutrients so by now you are pretty savvy on the in’s and out’s (literally!) of the digestive system.
The standard recommended intake of macro and micronutrients required to maintain optimal physiologic function is presented on supplement labels as %DV (percent daily value). This set value is a representation of the known requirement of 97.5% of healthy individuals according to age and gender. So where does this leave the rest of the population, especially individuals walking their healing journey with chronic disease(s) or ailments? Nutrient IV therapy is a replenishing healing modality due to its ability to fuel the body immediately on a cellular level with vitamins and minerals because it bypasses the digestive system. The standard protocol is known as a “Meyer’s Cocktail” and includes B-complex, Vitamin C, Calcium and Magnesium.
Several well researched medical conditions with great potential to benefit from nutrient IV therapy include colds and flu, seasonal allergic rhinitis, acute migraines, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, chronic pain, and cancer. Does this mean you have to be unwell to benefit from nutrient IV therapy? Not at all. Many healthy individuals have chosen periodic nutrient IV therapy to maintain increased energy, immune function, and detoxification via a healthy liver.
The nutrients delivered are the highest quality, bioavailable, and sourced from a local compounding pharmacy. The procedure is sterile, safe, and most patients find it very relaxing. Schedule an appointment with your doctor to find out if it is right for you and have your questions answered regarding the modality and pricing.
