What Is Integrative Medicine?

Nutritional IV Therapy - These IV's contain combinations of essential amino acids, Vitamin C, B vitamins, minerals, Calcium, Magnesium, and antioxidants. They are a critical component of therapy for people with chronic illness. Frequently in chronic illness, the gut does not perform its normal functions and people are slowly starving because of lack of nutrients, even though they may be eating a "healthy diet". When the gut gets damaged for whatever reason, it may not digest or absorb these nutrients and one can develop food sensitivities, increasing inflammation, and low-grade infections. IV therapy bypasses the gut and allows us to get the nutrients to the cells that need help.
Also, if you're feeling run down, extremely tired, or just have a feeling of general overall exhaustion, a nutritional IV can give you a boost. If you feel that your body needs fuel and your eating habits just aren't giving you the extra boost, a nutritional IV will deliver what you need to your body.
