IV Nutrition Overview
Nutritional IVs Now Available At Lake Norman Integrative Wellness
Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy is a proven safe and effective way to deliver nutrients and vitamins directly to your bloodstream. This technique bypasses the digestive system, ensuring all nutrients that are provided via IV therapy are available for immediate use by the body.
This method of delivery ensures almost 100% absorption for maximum effect and utilization by the body's tissues. This ensures a significantly higher effectiveness of the supplements in the body. When supplements are taken orally, the digestive system metabolizes them and significantly reduces the amount of vitamins and nutrients that actually enter the bloodstream, often only getting as little as 8% absorbed into the body via oral supplementation.
When you take a supplement pill it has to go through your stomach before it’s absorbed and your absorption rate is dependent on your gut health, your deficiencies, and how well your hormones are balanced. With so many of our patients suffering from Leaky Gut Syndrome, or Intestinal Permeability, IV therapy ensures that the nutrients are properly absorbed and available for immediate use by the body.
Because vitamins and nutrients are delivered directly to the cells that need them, IV therapy has the potential to impact and improve the function of a wide variety of body systems immediately. We see a wide range of health benefits of IV vitamin therapy.
One of the most important benefits of IV therapy is improved wellness and wellbeing. IV therapy can improve physical wellness and improve aspects of emotional wellness, such as depression or anxiety, by giving your body the tools it needs to return to a desired level of health. When your body has the ideal balance of vitamins and nutrients for normal function, you’ll feel better, get sick less frequently, improve physical performance and enjoy mental clarity.
Every day, your body requires a certain intake of vitamins and nutrients to maintain normal function. While the exact level varies from person to person, the demands of daily life can make it difficult to ingest adequate amounts of these essential vitamins.
Even when using multivitamins, the absorption rate depends on various factors. On top of that, many patients have intestinal permeability or leaky gut which impairs vitamin absorption and reduces the ability to effectively convert nutrients into usable energy for cells.
By providing almost 100% of the vitamins and nutrients your body needs in the IV therapy procedure, this allows us to see a wide range of benefits:
- Improve immune health
- Boost energy levels
- Improve symptoms of depression and anxiety
- Improve mental clarity and cognitive function
- Reduce the symptoms of migraines
- Improve allergies
- Combat fatigue
- Accelerate wound healing
- Maintain the strength of muscles and tissues
- Reduce inflammation systemically in the body
- Help support chemotherapy or provide immune support in the cancer patient
IV therapy is a convenient, safe and efficient way to give your body the support it needs to keep you feeling and looking your best.
We use a wide range of nutrients in our IV therapies with proven health benefits.
All of our nutritional IVs start with the option to help improve hydration through a normal saline solution providing IV fluids to the body.
This liquid is the foundation of many of our Nutritional IV therapies, providing essential hydration, and facilitating the delivery of vitamins throughout the body.
The human body is composed of 60% water, which means that staying hydrated is essential to every system. Proper hydration provides many health benefits in itself, including supporting healthy joint function, helping to maintain cardiovascular health, improving endurance, boosting mood, promoting healthy energy production, boosting concentration and focus and helping to provide effective mental clarity.
We incorporate nutritional IVs that provide Vitamin C, Glutathione and Alpha Lipoic Acid in high doses that are unobtainable through oral supplementation. These high doses provide a very effective tool to use in the support and treatment of a wide range of conditions ranging from autoimmune diseases, thyroid support, Lyme disease and the treatment of other infections, integrative cancer support, infertility, fibromyalgia, peripheral neuropathy just to name a few.
We also offer support through an IV infusion of what is called a Myers Cocktail, named after the late John Myers, MD. Dr. Myers developed IV nutrients to treat a multitude of acute/chronic conditions.
The combination of nutrients known as the Myer’s cocktail is an IV infusion which enhances the immune system, reduces fatigue, helps with seasonal allergies, and reduces symptoms of fibromyalgia and asthma.
This IV cocktail works by increasing blood concentration of several vitamins and minerals beyond which can be supplemented orally. Recall, IV will always supersede an oral route as far as bioavailability. When giving nutrients via intravenous (IV) route, digestion is bypassed. Placing the nutrients right into the blood stream kickstarts the whole process and allowing the cells in the body to be saturated with the nutrients they need to work more efficiently.
