Intravenous Nutrient Therapy, also known as IV Nutrient Therapy, is the introduction of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids directly into the patient’s venous system. IV Nutrient Therapy is utilized in the treatment of a wide range of diseases and conditions.
What is IV Nutrient Therapy?
IV Nutrient Therapy is an effective treatment method that doctors may prescribe at Steelsmith Natural Health Center. This method of administering nutrients is unique, because it allows them to directly enter a patient’s bloodstream, bypassing the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. This is especially useful for patients who may have some form of compromised GI absorption—for instance, those with celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, food sensitivities, and other inflammatory states of the stomach or intestines. In addition, IV Nutrient Therapy can be used to administer higher doses of vitamins or minerals than one would be able to absorb through food or oral supplements alone. This is important when treating specific disease states or conditions that require a high blood level of certain nutrients for optimal healing.
What does IV Nutrient Therapy treat?
IV Nutrient Therapy is recommended for people with a wide range of diseases and conditions. The therapy is prescribed for immune system enhancement (including for those with a propensity to a lower-functioning immune system), migraine relief, support in various cancer conditions, antioxidant boluses for competitive athletes, energy optimization for chronic fatigue conditions, and preventively for anyone seeking to maintain their best possible state of health. It also is prescribed to help support people with neurodegenerative conditions such as dementia, peripheral neuropathy, and Parkinson’s disease. It may also benefit those who have autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis.
