A Nutrient Infusion is an intravenous delivery system for vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and other natural medicines in specific formulations to optimize the body’s healing ability. Nutrients often included are vitamin C, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, magnesium, calcium, zinc, chromium, copper, selenium, glutathione and alpha lipoic acid. The Nutrient Infusion provides nutrients in therapeutic doses in order to saturate and replenish the body’s cells in a very efficient and effective way. The intravenous route of therapy, bypasses the stomach acid, the bowel mucosal barrier and eliminates all problems of absorption. It allows expeditious delivery of these essential elements in therapeutic doses, concurrently and in the proper proportions for maximum synergistic effect. Nutrient Infusions can play an important role in the pursuit of improved health, especially for those experiencing disease, injury, or recovery from surgeries.
Some of the more common conditions where Nutrient Infusions are advantageous include:
Migraine or tension headaches
General immune boosting
Support to cancer patients
Congestive Heart Failure
Ischemic Vascular Disease
Reduction or elimination of the need for pharmaceutical drugs
Enhancing athletic performance
NOTE: Drinking plenty of water and having food in the stomach is advised before coming to the office to have a Nutrient Infusion. A general flush feeling, light-headedness and/or a taste of the vitamins is sometimes experienced by patients but is considered to be a normal and safe sensation.
Some nutrients may also be administered through an intramuscular injection.
