Intravenous Vitamin C

Intravenous (IV) therapy is the introduction of substances through a needle directly into the vein. These substances are then exposed to the cells and tissues directly. Using this method, vitamins, minerals, homeopathics, herbs, and other healing substances are delivered in far greater amounts than can be achieved via inhalation, orally, or through the skin-and with far greater effect.

Oral intake of vitamins or food delivers only about 10-25% of the available nutrients to the cells, while IV therapy delivers 100% of the infused therapies nutrients directly to these cells. It is particularly important for people suffering from chronic illness and/or a compromised gastrointestinal system (e.g. lack of enzymes or poor gut lining integrity).

After a medical evaluation, your physician may suggest that IV Therapy is recommended as an important part of your treatment plan.  Patients who have difficulty absorbing nutrients, who suffer from chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, immune deficiencies, and other chronic conditions may be good candidates for these therapies.  Acute infection, illness or injury may also be indications for this therapy.
