IV Vitamin / Nutritional Therapy
Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Therapy involves administering vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the bloodstream. This delivery system allows for maximum nutrient absorption because it bypasses the GI tract where there is a high potential loss of nutrient potency and poor absorption of some orally administered vitamins.
Poor nutrition, chronic stress, improper sleeping patterns and lack of physical activity all contribute to premature aging, weight gain, digestive disorders, skin problems, fatigue and illness. This leaves the cells deficient of nutrients that are necessary for repairing and healing. However, the nutrients are not available because the cells have become too weak to transport vitamins and minerals where they are needed. This quick procedure allows for us to provide you with immediate therapeutic response by giving you the nutrients your body needs and correcting deficiencies. IV Therapy can be used both proactively to maintain optimum wellness and also to treat acute and chronic conditions.
