The benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy are many! IV therapy can address many symptoms such as viral infections, colds, chronic fatigue, Epstein Barr virus, Lyme Disease, autoimmune disease, migraines and so much more. It also is great for giving you that extra boost of energy when you are run down.
How Can IV Vitamin Therapy help?
IV Vitamin therapy administers vitamins and minerals directly to the blood stream. This is beneficial for several reasons. First, many individuals have a difficult time absorbing nutrients taken by mouth. A vitamin that’s taken by mouth gets broken down in the stomach and digestive tract where it is then absorbed. For several reasons, a person can suffer from intestinal permeability, causing malabsorption of the nutrients. Factors include age, metabolism, health status, genetics, interactions with other products we consume, and the physical and chemical makeup of the nutritional supplement or food. If, however, the vitamin is given through an IV, it is absorbed directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the gut. Secondly, one of the main ingredients in our IVs is Vitamin C. The human body can only absorb so much Vitamin C through the intestines, however for many treatments and illnesses, a higher dose is required. This higher dose can be achieved by the IVs themselves.
What sets our IVs apart from the others?
Here at Centered, we take the time to tailor the IVs to the individual. We run labs that will then be looked over by our Clinical Nutritionist. She will decide the best protocol for your care based on your health status, genetics and lab values. With specific testing, we can make sure you are receiving exactly what you need to receive the best results. Additionally, you have the option to continue your care with the Nutritionist to mend your intestinal wall, allowing for proper absorption of the nutrients in the food you consume.
