IV Therapy

Intravenous (IV) vitamin and mineral therapy is a safe and powerful healing tool. Often by the time symptoms of disease have made their appearance, the body is so far out of balance that taking vitamins and minerals orally does not make a big difference, or the difference they make is slow and gradual. IV vitamin and mineral therapy allows us to speed up the healing process. IV therapy consists of a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients specifically selected for a patient’s condition and are administered directly into the vein.

When our cells are healthy and happy we eat our food and take our multi-vitamins and our cells admit all these nutrients via a process called active transport. When cells become sick, they no longer have the energy to transport nutrients inside. The cell needs nutrients inside to make it healthy again, however the cell is too sick to transport these nutrients in sufficient quantity and it remains unhealthy. If you administer nutrients in a high concentration you force those nutrients into the cell by means of a concentration gradient, without needing or expending energy and therefore help the cells become nourished and healthy again. Healthy cells mean a healthy body!
