Intravenous, or IV therapy, is a treatment modality in which nutrients are introduced to the body through a vein. IV nutritional therapy makes it easier for clinicians to help patients reach therapeutic levels, in which the nutrients delivered have the greatest effect. It is at these therapeutic nutritional levels, where inflammation can be reversed and the body can be brought back into a state of balance and towards wellness. This is because the nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream and can flood cells instantly ensuring optimal absorption. This often requires high concentrations that are only achievable intravenously.
Like every individual, each IV treatment is customized for each patient to ensure that the formula will target each patient’s condition. Nutritional infusions contain blends of vitamins, minerals, amino acids or antioxidants to increase vitality and promote wellness.
How Does it Work?
Even the highest quality oral supplement being consumed by a person with a healthy intestinal tract will only allow for partial absorption. Once absorbed, these nutrients get processed at the liver, which destroys another portion of supplements through metabolism. IV nutrition bypasses the gastrointestinal tract and the liver, providing 100% absorption.
Generally, treatments take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the formula. Dr. DelToro will determine which formula is appropriate for your specific health picture.
