IV therapy isn’t necessarily new — it’s been a mainstay in modern medicine for over a century, supplying vital medications to those who need immediate help. But its use to deliver vitamins and nutrients is gaining traction as an effective wellness tool that provides your body with the resources it needs to remain in the pink of health.
The reason why delivering critical vitamins and nutrients intravenously is so effective is because they go straight into your bloodstream, bypassing your gastrointestinal tract. When you ingest vitamin supplements, more than 50% of the nutrients are broken down and flushed out. With IV therapy your absorption rate is more than 90%, which means your body is reaping almost all of the intended benefits.
The vitamins and nutrients contained in the IV therapy treatments at Enhanced Medical Centers vary as each case is unique, but they usually contain:
Your IV therapy can also deliver powerful antioxidants like glutathione, depending upon your needs.
The team at Enhanced Medical Centers recommends IV therapy to patients who have compromised immune systems due to a cold or flu, as well as anyone who suffers from an immune deficiency disorder. The following conditions also respond well to IV therapy:
IV therapy can also help in cases of dehydration.
As a preventive tool, regular IV therapy also provides your body with the tools it needs for healthy living.
There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. It depends upon your unique health care concerns. If you’re trying to get through the flu or cold more quickly, you could benefit from 1-2 treatments. If, however, you’re struggling with a chronic condition, your provider could recommend more regular treatments.
If you’re interested in IV therapy as a preventive tool, the team first fully assesses your health to identify any deficiencies. Once they have a clear idea about which vitamins and minerals are appropriate for you, they come up with a schedule that should serve your health well.
