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.
