What is Vitamin Therapy?
Vitamin therapy consists of blending a specific combination of vitamins and inserting the blend into one’s body through an IV or by an oral tablet. Vitamins injected through IV therapy enter directly into the bloodstream, are absorbed through the stomach and are dispersed by the digestive system. Vitamin therapy through an IV allows the patient to take in amounts of vitamins that would not be able to be taken orally. Vitamin therapy can treat a multitude of conditions as well as maintain wellness in healthy patients. Benefits of vitamin therapy include energy boosts, decreased irritability, stress relief, improved sleep and increased hydration.
IV Vitamin and nutrient infusions can provide much needed vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids more effectively than any pills or supplements can. These infusions also allow for higher dosages of targeted supplements, with a better percentage of absorption by the body, as well as a faster delivery to the cells throughout the body. A few weeks of therapy will vastly improve any symptoms related to chronic diseases, and allow a quick and easy transition to the appropriate oral supplements for continued aid. IV vitamin therapy can help with a variety of health concerns, help patients feel better, and all around help you feel more energized.
The most commonly asked questions about IV vitamin therapy are:
- What vitamins are best to take?
- How much of each vitamin should I take?
Because each patient’s needs are different, it’s important to note the correct answer as it relates to you and your specific health needs. The following medical conditions have been found to be helped by IV vitamin therapy:
- Alzheimer’s and dementia
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
- Autoimmune illnesses
- Celiac disease
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Immune disorders
- Macular degeneration
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson’s disease
- Toxicity syndrome
The power of vital vitamins and nutrients is overwhelming and can have an incredibly potent effect on the body when administered directly into a vein. All of the vitamins used at the Wellness Center are natural and have been proven to be effective in the treatment of a variety of medical conditions. The amount of critical nutrients in the average American food supply has been depleted due to poor farming practices, and heavy processing, and some individuals cannot adequately absorb nutrients from the gastrointestinal tract. Due to these factors, as well as numerous others, it is more critical than ever that we provide our bodies with the correct amount of nutrition in order to be healthy.
The process of IV vitamin therapy is incredibly simple, yet effective. It is conducted in a quiet, peaceful atmosphere. The IV is placed on the patient’s arm and is much more comfortable than having blood drawn. The patient is provided a comfortable chair and has the ability to read, listen to music or watch TV to relax during the process. A typical IV vitamin therapy session takes approximately an hour, while specialty IV processes can take up to 4 hours.
Risks and Other Factors
All the components of the vitamin therapy solutions are compounds that are natural to the body and pose no health risks. These treatments are much safer, compared to the common intravenous treatments that are more well known, such as chemotherapy and antibiotics. Very few side effects (if any) may be experienced. Some may be felt at the time of infusion, such as irritation in the vein, lowering of blood pressure or blood sugar, headaches, muscle cramps or weakness, dizziness or lightheadedness. These issues can be prevented when patients come into the therapy session well hydrated and without hunger. Some patients note that bringing snacks and fresh juices can assist in the minimization of these side effects.
