Intravenous Therapies - IV Therapies

What is IV Therapy?

Intravenous therapies are used by conventional and alternative medical experts to provide nutrition and healing compounds to the body via the veins. This can be a powerful delivery method which is much more efficient than other routes of administration.

IV therapies are used to help treat several health conditions. Some include:
  • Asthma, Chronic sinusitis, and other respiratory illnesses
  • Viral and Bacterial Infections, Herpes
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cancer
  • Circulation and Heart Problems, High blood pressure, Hardening of
    the Arteries
  • Aging
  • Stress
  • Poor Nutrition
  • Chronic Fatigue, Depression
  • Pain, muscle spasms
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Headaches, Migraines
  • Toxin removal
  • Hepatitis and other liver diseases
  • Diabetes

How Do Intravenous Therapies Work?

Intravenous therapies provide nutrients and healing compounds directly to the blood stream. This means that all of the nutrients and healing compounds immediately flow throughout the entire body.

Some substances are deactivated if given by mouth or other routes. Others are poorly absorbed. Sometimes the only way to effectively administer them is by IV therapy. Using IV therapy, you can be assured that 100 percent of the healing benefits are being delivered quickly so that optimum healing can occur. Very sick patients may be unable to absorb and utilize nutrients given by mouth. They may be too sick to consume the amount of nutrients which healing requires. IV therapies can reverse malnutrition.

What kind of Intravenous Therapies are Available?

There are a multitude of therapies. Your health care provider will discuss options with you and make recommendations based upon your specific needs.

Vitamin therapies provide nutrition which resolves a wide range of health conditions, including fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. They are also used to treat cancer and ease side effects due to chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Vitamin C and vitamin E are frequently prescribed. Myers's Cocktail is a special blend of vitamins used to treat several conditions and enhance immune function.

Chelation treatment removes toxic heavy metals from the body. This can be beneficial in the treatment of circulatory and other problems.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is often combined with vitamin therapies to treat cancer. It typically helps the body to utilize vitamins better. It may improve insulin sensitivity and reduce blood sugar levels which improve health for diabetics. ALA is important in the treatment of liver diseases, such as hepatitis.

Glutathione is an essential nutrient which is best given via intravenous therapy. People who do not eat well or who have problems which interfere with the absorption and utilization of nutrients benefit from glutathione IV treatment.
