Our diet provides basic nutrients however there are scenarios in which higher levels of certain nutrients can have an effect at the cellular level and powerfully ignite a healing process. Often people's diets are poor or they have a condition that impairs absorption of nutrients. The advantage of using IV (intravenous) therapy to deliver vitamins and minerals to the body, is that these nutrients bypass the stomach and go directly into bloodstream where they are able to rapidly reach and saturate cells. In this way, we can also acheive pharmacological doses impossible to attain by taking supplements orally. Thus, IV therapy is a unique and powerful treatment option that is very useful for certain conditions because it acheives better results, faster. Patients are prescribed custom-tailored IV protocols that are targeted to their specific condition.
