There are some conditions where it is beneficial to provide extra nutrients using intravenous (IV) or intramuscular (IM) nutritional support. This type of therapy can be useful for many different symptoms and conditions, from restoring balance by treating a simple B12 deficiency to customized IV formulas designed to treat complex diseases. These include many serious chronic conditions such as Lyme’s disease, Epstein-Barr infection, hepatitis, multiple sclerosis, and cancer.
- Fatigue and adrenal exhaustion can benefit from nutritional IV’s that contain B complex, vitamin C, magnesium and other minerals to support adrenal function.
- A basic IV with electrolytes can be perfect for an individual suffering from temporary dehydration during the flu or food poisoning.
- A hydrating IV with amino acids can also be a great addition to a sports nutrition program for endurance athletes that want to take their results to the highest possible level.
- If caught early, a nutritional IV can be an effective way to ward off cold and flu, and give the immune system a boost. Specific immune boosting homeopathics can be given as a quick IM shot in the arm in less than 5 minutes!
