Chronic symptoms are often related to long term vitamin deficiencies, that are due to either dietary insufficiency or the inability of the body to absorb nutrients. With infusion of nutrients directly into the bloodstream digestive absorption problems are bypassed, and nutritional deficiencies are resolved. IV nutrition has been shown to be helpful for a wide range of clinical conditions, often producing dramatic results.
WHAT IS IV NUTRITION?
IV Nutrition is the direct infusion of nutrients into the bloodstream, effectively bypassing the gastrointestinal tract. It has been observed that the gastrointestinal tract is sensitive to a variety of stressors that can reduce its function in digestion and absorption of nutrients, immune and neurological signaling, and elimination of waste.
Often, when the body is in a state of disease or imbalance, the gut is burdened by excess waste and is unable to process the large amount of nutrients needed to rebalance the body. Nutrient deficiencies due to the body’s increased utilization of nutrients for recovery and repair reactions, or due to an inefficient digestion and absorption by the gastrointestinal tract can lead to a variety of symptoms.
It is a common experience that when we are not feeling well or have a disease, our appetite is low and our gastrointestinal tract does not function optimally. IV nutritional therapies can increase the delivery of specific vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are often needed to fight disease and to rebalance documented nutritional deficiency states.
IV delivery of nutrients can provide immediate rise in the body’s nutrient levels, that cannot be achieved with oral nutrition alone, without a significant burden to the gut. IV Nutrition has the added benefit of providing the cells lining the gut additional nutrients needed for enhanced functioning during oral nutritional support.
This approach is similar to the conventional use of IV antibiotics for the rapid cure of an infection. Adverse effects are seen very rarely, and are generally mild and of short duration. The correction of vitamin deficiencies often allows patients to avoid or reduce the need for pharmaceutical drugs.
In addition to ****IV EDTA chelation** MindBodySpirit Care offers a variety of targeted IV nutritional therapies individually prescribed for the care of specific conditions. Conditions that frequently respond to IV Nutrition include fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia, muscle weakness, neurological dysfunctions (including headaches, and MS), digestive disorders, and immune deficiency conditions (including upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, and seasonal allergic rhinitis). IV Nutrition therapies can be used as protection during times of excessive oxidative stress such as that experienced in conjunction with removal of amalgam fillings, frequent air travel, and other toxic exposures.
Many relatively healthy patients chose to receive periodic injections because the rapid replenishment of nutrients enhances their overall well being for periods of a week to several months. Following evaluation, if IV Nutrition is prescribed, it is administered in a comfortable setting by our experienced staff, in a convenient time schedule and serve as both a functional and a practical form of therapy.
