For decades, intravenous infusion therapy has been a critical part of the patient care serving as an efficient and immediate solution to dehydration, nutrition-absorption disorders and the delivery of life-saving medications. But recently the connection between micronutrients and health challenges became very obvious.
Even as overall health has improved and lifespans have increased exponentially over the past decades, micronutrient deficiency has spiked.
There were several studies conducted between 2003 and 2006 which assessed 16 thousand patients and 19 micronutrients, revealed that the adult population has depleted levels of essential vitamins and minerals ranging from Vitamin B6 and niacin to copper, selenium and vitamins A, C, D, and E.
While the full implications of these deficiencies aren’t known, we do know that they can (and have) led to increased inflammation, surgical complications, decreased immunity and impacted post-surgery recovery. There is also the belief that these deficiencies could be contributing to rising levels of chronic disease. According to the WHO over half of the world population in 2019 suffered from one or more chronic conditions such as diabetes and obesity, while rheumatic, endocrinological and gastrointestinal autoimmune diseases in Israel, Netherlands, USA and Sweden increased the most. These observations point to a stronger influence of environmental factors as opposed to genetic factors on autoimmune disease development, and these numbers will only continue to rise.So Where Does Nutritional IV Therapy Come In?
Intravenous therapy offers improved absorption and bioavailability which opens the doors to better treatment options and increased patient benefits. We can see nutritional IV therapy helping a range of patient concerns every day, for such a conditions:
- Allergic rhinitis and asthma
- Immune disorders
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Heavy metal toxicity
- Diabetes and its complications
- Chronic heart disease
- Chronic metabolic disorders
- Autoimmune diseases
- Lyme disease
- Chronic bacterial and viral inflammatory diseases
- Depression and mood support
- Leaky Gut syndrome
- Chronic intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and fungal infections
- Post-traumatic and post-ischemic brain conditions
Our IV protocols offer a new path to treatment for many patients whether they have trouble with oral dosing or they simply need a quick and large dose of vitamins to boost immunity or fight off jet lag. Overall wellness is definitely being optimized with IV therapies but it is also appropriate for patients with high inflammatory responses or allergies, food intolerances, gastric bypass, PPL and gastritis.
For patients with neural inflammation, post- ischemic conditions we offer solutions with proven and known neuroprotective properties, such as Cithicoline and GABA, Inositol and Choline, vitamins and minerals that play an essential role in neurons metabolism.
For patients with liver disorders we offer unique on the market essential phospholipids and Ademethionine. For patients with metabolic disorders we can choose IV protocols with anti-oxidants such as Alpha-Lipoic acid, Glutathione, and mitochondrial metabolic boosters (such as succinic acid).What advice for Intravenous Therapy we can offer at our Practice?
