Nutritional IV Therapy
Nutritional IV Therapy is a way to introduce nutrients and therapeutic agents directly into the bloodstream. It can be used to correct deficiencies, enhance immune function, increase energy and assist in maintaining health. The benefit of IV therapy over oral nutrition is that nutrients bypass the digestive system, are infused in high concentrations and optimally nourish the body’s cells and tissues. Vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other natural agents can be administered in a pleasant relaxing atmosphere while a person reads, listens to music, or rests.
We have the most effective and highest quality nutrient IVs in the medical market today. While the majority of IV centers offer generic IVs and incorporate medications into them; East West stands firm on custom-making her IVs from scratch, using Only All-Natural Ingredients. Each bag is tailored toward each patient’s needs while using the highest injectables from US based pharmacies.
IV therapy is often used to support a person with chronic or severe illness, those undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments as well as those with chronic fatigue.
We formulate protocols specific to health challenges such as:
Fatigue, Improved Athletic Performance, Immune System Support, Post-Operative Repair after Surgical Procedures, Colds, Flu, Acute or Chronic Infections (Viral/Bacterial), Fever, Migraines/Headaches, Nutritional Support, Detoxification, Nutrient Deficiencies, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Digestive Disorders, Ulcerative Colitis/Crohns Disease, Pre/Post Travel, Vitamin/Mineral Deficiencies, Hepatitis, Cancer Support, Preventative Care….just to name a few.
There are several reasons why IV therapy can be more effective than administering vitamins and medications orally.
- First, absorption into the blood stream is complete and bioavailability of the substances is immediate.
- Second, there is no “first pass” effect in the liver, thus the procedure lessens the workload on the liver. Another thing to consider is that the absorptive capacity of the bowel may be decreased with age, and this along with a decrease in the natural production of hydrochloric acid and pancreatic enzymes can result in nutritional deficiencies because the body is no longer properly breaking down and absorbing nutrients from the foods we eat. IV repletion leads to a rapid increase in nutrient levels in the blood, meaning that the nutrients are able to get into the cells as needed and increase cell metabolism. Intravenous administration of nutrients bypasses digestion, and processing by the liver. Keep in mind that everything we swallow must first be digested and passed through the portal vein to the liver, where nutrients will be disseminated to the rest of the body. That makes it difficult to use effective enough doses to bring forth a quick physiological change.
- Third, intravenous therapy creates “tissue saturation”, the ability to get the nutrients where we want them, directly in the circulation, where they can reach body tissues at high doses, without loss.
In order to achieve a more youthful appearance, deep tissue saturation of nutrients is mandatory. While modestly helpful, oral and topical treatments fail to achieve the nutritional tissue saturation of Intravenous Therapies.
I am frequently asked how often one receives an IV?
The answer is individualized depending upon the reason for therapy and the patient’s constitution. While most patients enjoy the benefits of the effects once a week for a month, others receive IV Therapy regularly once a month.
It’s easy to get started…book an appointment and sit back and relax while your body absorbs the optimum amount of nutrition possible in thirty minutes to an hour.
