What is the benefit of IV Nutritional Therapy?

Benefits of IV therapy are tremendous.

  • Intravenous therapy gives nutrition to the central and vital parts of the body directly.
  • Vitamins and minerals are needed daily for cellular processes and energy pathways.
  • IV Nutrient therapy bypasses the gut absorptions and some liver processing to reach cells

Our fueling sources from foods are broken down and absorbed through the intestinal skin layers we call the mucosa. From the diffusion into the blood or transfer from the mucosal layer of skin in our intestines, nutrients are picked up in the blood to be carried and processed in the liver. From the liver, nutrients of elemental vitamins and minerals are then delivered to the heart to be directly circulated to the vital parts of the body. The circulation system is the driving factor for our nutritional delivery and our method of concentration diffuses with perfusion of nutritional elements for cellular processes. Our cells and mitochondria inside of them perform many chemical processes, one of which is the Kreb’s Cycle and the nutritional pathways to keep giving us energy.

There are several ways that the body can be deficient in the delivery of nutrients. Supplementation can be assisted to address these. Symptoms can arise with deficient nutrients and lower energy can be seen in these symptoms as well as other noticeable symptoms. We can address these symptoms by the provider, using evaluations, clinical assessment and through lab testing. Nutrients are subjected to a state of balance in the body, as the body addresses this balance through cellular processes and metabolic changes.

The body does this in several pathways by using the nutrients, storing them, and or discarding them. Some nutrients if over exposed can cause adverse symptoms. We use precision in prescription, monitoring, and other nutrients to address these. Emergencies can arise and can be possible in occurrence to unknown factors, genetics, and opportunistic restructuring of homeostasis. We use proven methods from training to practice and maintain a clean environment in IV setup, IV application, and IV infusion. Clean air is an absolute must, as are sterile aseptic methods are vital to the safety of our clientele.

Our criteria for service requires patients to have an initial consultation and evaluation by the provider. IVs have to be catered to people and prescribed accordingly to safety and indicated for application types. We adhere to best methods of practice for IV Therapy. IV Therapy is not for everyone but can be catered to meet the needs of many people. A consultation must be done before any IV therapy is given, and a plan has to be created for everyone whether for IV hydration or IV nutritional supplementation. We practice in accordance of best practice. Best practice consists of the following. 

Consultation consisting of:

  • Review of past history, medical conditions, surgeries
  • Medication review: past antibiotics, statins, certain meds obscure chemical pathways, causing deficiencies
  • Nutritional evaluation: symptom analysis of body systems: tissue, skin, nails
  • Lab testing: through choices of hair, blood, urine, each has their benefits
  • Treatment considerations: specialized personal plan of care addressing cellular pathways

Krebs Cycle For Mitochondrial Energy

cellular respiration

We can use many things to treat the energy pathways and labs can help us identify deficiencies for fighting energy fatigue  

Many medications (one such as statins-CoA enzyme blocking, causing muscle fatigue) can interfere with the krebs cycle and add to oxidation stress. IV therapy can help address this and repair mitochondria functions. Prevent advancement of anti-aging and cellular decline. Gives nutrients to the cells where they need it, adds to the pool reserves.

Methylation ROS Treatments

Deficiencies in b vitamins can cause breakdown of cellular processes and inflammation . We can help reduce this with multi vitamin replenishment. Labs can also help us identify issues

Many pathways are dependent on other pathways and elemental processes to create enzymes needed to replenish pathways, relieve cellular stress and dysfunction. Supplementation can assist with this. 

Methylation treatments can be given in supplementation B vitamins and through IV such as Glutathiaone

Muscle stress and oxidative response
Alleman, Rick J. et al. (2014) a redox perspective—Adaptive vs. deleterious responses to oxidative stress in striated muscle. Frontiers in Physiology.

Cellular signalling pathways if constantly exposed to constant stress, cell membranes, cellular organs, and matrices get remodeled and become less responsive. IV supplementation can assist with the repair and prevention of cellular stress giving nutrients back to the cellular level.

Oxidative stress comes in many forms:food, sports,   illness, and the body balances them with many various processes. Availability of nutrients are needed to balance this and prevent cellular destruction

Exercise activity creates cellular stress. Stress can be good for building and can be damaging for cellular  breakdown. Healing can be enhanced with IV therapy of nutrients.  Athletic peak performance needs nutrients for recovery.

Various supplements can be used to neutralize reactive cellular oxidation species (ROS) or free radicals and antioxidants bind to block their destruction. IV therapy and supplementation can assist in delivering vital antioxidants to the cellular level when in need.
