IV Therapy TreatmentNadine Gavin ND
Your Health In Your Hands
IV Therapy consists of safe combinations of vitamins and minerals completely tailored to the individual’s health needs.
The advantage of administering these agents intravenously is improved absorption directly into the tissues and cells of the body. This enhances the therapeutic effect and allows for concentrations that are not possible through oral supplementation.
Frequently Asked Questions: IV Therapy
What Is The Difference Between IV Therapy And Taking An Oral Supplement?
Intravenous Therapy safely and effectively delivers high doses of vitamins and minerals directly into the body’s circulation.
The advantage of administering nutrients intravenously rather than orally is that we don’t have to rely on the digestive tract to absorb them. IV therapy bypasses the digestive tract as well as the liver and the substances are delivered directly into the tissues and cells of the body. This enhances the therapeutic effect and allows for concentrations that are not possible through oral supplementation.
Simply put, many people feel better, faster.
