IV Nutrition Therapy (IVNT) is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the bloodstream used to correct intracellular nutrient deficiencies. Oral intake of such high doses is typically not possible due to absorption limitations from the digestive process. Patients can oftentimes receive up to 10 times the nutrients in one treatment as they could get orally in one day.
TAKING ATHLETES TO THE NEXT LEVEL
Dr. Bond and our Prime Health team have worked with athletes at every level of competition and understand their specific nutritional needs. Our IV Nutrition team has post-graduate level medical training in the specifics of IV Nutrition Therapy as it relates not only to athletes, but to those with chronic conditions as well.
IVNT AS ADJUNCTIVE TREATMENT
Also known as “The Myers’ Cocktail”, it works by increasing the blood concentration of several essential vitamins and minerals beyond that which can be achieved when supplementing orally. For example, Vitamin C given intravenously has been found to reach blood concentrations more than 50 times greater than what can be achieved when given orally.
IV Nutrition Therapy is perfect for those who:
After receiving IV Nutrition Therapy, many patients may feel an energy boost lasting days or weeks. In some cases of fibromyalgia, decreased pain have been observed. In other chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis, because the “leaky” nature of the gut, the infusion could help get necessary nutrients into the cells. Chronic asthma and other lung disease, congestive heart failure, and chronic allergic problems may respond with more energy and less symptoms. Patients who get sick often with infections may find an improved immune response, with less susceptibility to viral illnesses.
