The Science Behind IV Nutrition Therapy
IV Nutrition Therapy is a common practice among Medical and Naturopathic doctors all around the world. It is a well-researched treatment with a long history of use that is able to address nutritional deficiencies, as well as deliver important micronutrients which trigger desired biological reactions within the body.
The human body consists of somewhere between 100-200 Trillian cells which are conducting over 500 billion chemical reactions each second. These cells operate in a complex network of organ systems and must be kept in a constant balance to assure optimum health. When these cells have the proper fuel and environment (ie. the proper vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids) in which to operate, an individual is usually considered to be healthy. When there is an imbalance in these essential nutrients cellular dysfunction and health issues arise. IV Nutrition therapy fundamentally aims to correct these imbalances by giving the body’s cellular environment what it requires, and consequently optimizing the health of the patient.
IV Nutrition therapy works to promote healthy cellular function in the body which has the downstream effect of promoting health throughout the entire body. If your cells are healthy and able to correctly carry out their biological processes, then you are healthy. Most chronic illnesses are associated with cellular dysfunction within the body. By assisting your cells, IV Nutrition therapy can reduce inflammation, fight the effects of aging, improve energy, strengthen immunity, and aid in the treatment of numerous health conditions.
Who can Benefit from IV Therapy?
IV therapy can procure therapeutic effects for many individuals across a wide range of conditions. The fact that a number of IV therapies work to promote overall health and wellbeing means that the benefits are not limited to the acutely or chronically ill.
In an ideal world, our diet should provide adequate levels of basic nutrients, however, due to chronic stress, poor diet choices, environmental pollutants, nutrient depleted soil and genetic modification, nutrient status in the body is often not even close to optimal. Healthy diet choices are paramount for good health, and IV nutrition can help with cellular nutrition when there are deficiencies in the body. Helping treat nutritional deficiencies is only one aspect of IV therapy. Different disease states can negatively affect the cellular processes in our body and the IV administration of certain substances directly to the cells can be of great therapeutic value.
The benefits of IV Nutrition Therapy can be bestowed upon everyone from the individual with an acute cold, to the patient suffering from the effects of chemo therapy, to the elite athlete looking to improve athletic performance. Many IV Therapy practitioners specialize in the treatment of certain conditions such as cancer, or allergies. It is important to find an IV practitioner whom is well versed in the treatment of your specific condition. IV Nutrition therapy may be used as an adjunct to conventional medicine or as the sole treatment modality depending on what is determined optimal for the patient.
