IV Nutritional Therapy is an incredibly efficient method for treating nutritional deficiencies. Intravenous nutrient delivery bypasses any absorption issues within the body to address deficits quickly. Vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients are quickly circulated through your bloodstream and delivered to cells, where they are immediately available for use.
Commonly used for the treatment and prevention of many conditions, this therapy also helps to hydrate the body and detoxify the liver and lymphatic system, thereby helping your body work more efficiently. It is an ideal process for patients who cannot easily swallow pills or have a compromised digestive system.
Patients with the following conditions may benefit from Nutritional IV Therapy:
Certain nutrients require specific blood or tissue concentrations in order for them to be pharmacologically active; this often requires higher doses than what may be attained orally. One problem is that higher doses of certain nutrients can cause problems in the gastrointestinal tract like abdominal cramping, nausea and diarrhea. Further complicating matters is that many patients have conditions that impair their intestinal absorption of particular nutrients. IV therapy delivers nutrients directly to the bloodstream bypassing the digestive system, permitting 100% of the nutrients to be absorbed.
After performing the necessary assessments to determine your individual needs, Dr. Merrick will tailor your specific IV formulations. She provides a complete diagnostic service to identify nutritional deficiencies and will recommend the perfect balance to maximize the power of IV Therapy for each patient.
