Our functional approach to health goes beyond treating symptoms and instead, discerns root causes with the goal of achieving greater health and vitality. Here at Advanced Integrative Medicine, we offer a specialized treatment which helps the patient meet their health goals and promotes healing. It is Nutritional IV (Intravenous) Therapy.
What Is Nutritional IV Therapy?
Nutritional IV Therapy is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the bloodstream used to correct intracellular nutrient deficiencies. It is recommended when the required intake of such high doses of nutritional supplements is not possible to take orally due to malabsorption from specific disease processes, absorption limitations from the digestive process or when a person does not adequately absorb vitamins and minerals through the gastrointestinal tract. Patients can get up to 10 times the nutrients in one treatment as they could eat in one day.
Most often Nutritional IV Therapy is used in conjunction with nutritional detoxification programs, immune stimulation or extreme depletion of the body stores.
