Don’t underestimate the importance of nutrients. It’s believed that disease can be caused by nutrient deficiencies, as well as by certain toxins invading the body.
It’s thought that nutrients like Vitamin C and Glutathione can address these issues. Unfortunately, the oral intake of nutrients is often insufficient – there’s only so much Vitamin C that you can consume before you experience an upset stomach.
IV Therapy delivers important nutrients directly into your bloodstream to provide you with the highest possible levels while avoiding potential gastric symptoms. With IV infusions, Dr. Williams treats digestive issues like ulcerative colitis and infections like hepatitis.
IV (intravenous) Therapy is the delivery of nutrients like vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream. IV Therapy is used to deliver nutrients to the cells more efficiently.
IV Therapy may be especially beneficial for those with the following digestive issues:
These issues can interfere with the intestinal breaking-down of food, meaning that much of the nutrients are excreted rather than absorbed through the digestive tract lining and sent to the bloodstream.
By delivering the nutrients directly into your bloodstream, IV therapy avoids digestive issues, gastric symptoms, and nutrient dosing limitations, providing nutrients at a higher concentration then consuming them orally would.
IV Therapies at The Wellness & Aesthetics Medical Center usually take about 30 minutes to 2 hours to perform in our office. You’ll relax during the entire visit. Dr. Williams will explain to you any aftercare instructions, how soon you can expect to see results, and how long the effects of IV Therapy will last.
IV Therapy can be used to improve a wide number of conditions, such as:
IV Therapy is also used to address nutrient deficiencies caused by surgical procedures like gastric bypass, lap band, and gallbladder removal, as well as for liver detoxification and wound healing.
There are many types of IV Therapy, each using their own nutrient or combination of nutrients. Before receiving your IV drip, Dr. Williams will review your medical history to determine which therapy is best for your condition:
Other IV Therapies include Energy Infusion, Chronic Fatigue Protocol, and a Hepatitis Protocol. Dr. Williams will explain these to you in more detail.
Intravenous, or IV, nutrition is a method of administering nutrients that is more efficient than ingesting pills due to limitations of the digestive process. With IV nutrition, the nutrients flow directly into your bloodstream, allowing for a higher rate of absorption. IV Nutrition is useful in cases where a patient needs to overcome a virus, whose elimination may call for a certain level of a particular vitamin. This level is attainable with IV Nutrition but not with medicine consumed orally.
IV nutritional therapy is a treatment by which vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients are slowly administered via a small needle in the patient's vein.
Many illnesses and medical conditions associated with digestive disturbances, such as malabsorption, food sensitivities, and leaky gut syndrome cause the body to fail at absorbing many crucial nutrients. Stressful situations can cause the body to use certain nutrients at a faster rate or require higher amounts for proper healing. Some common medications deplete the body's supply of particular nutrients, creating deficiencies over time.
When nutrients are delivered intravenously, the digestive system is bypassed and 100% nutrient absorption is achieved. Introducing nutrients intravenously opens circulation to the cells of your body so that they can easily obtain the nutrients needed to repair, heal, and function.
IV nutritional therapy can be used to treat the following conditions:
Risks of intravenous nutritional therapy comfort, bruising, and pain at the site of injection; inflammation of the vein used for injection; severe allergic reactions.
