IV Nutritional Therapy

IV nutritional therapy is a safe and effective method for replenishing the body’s vitamins and nutrients. It can be used to treat a variety of symptoms and conditions.

What is IV Nutritional Therapy?

Intravenous (IV) nutritional therapy is the process of administering a collection of vitamins, electrolytes, amino acids, and nutrients directly into the bloodstream through a vein. IVs have long been a part of medical treatment when their use became a common solution for patient care during the mid-1800s. In the 1940s, modern IV treatment as seen today came into view.

As a fast and efficient way to replenish chronically depleted nutrient reserves, IV nutritional therapy has shown signs of being an effective method for treating a wide variety of conditions. The body requires a certain level of vitamins and nutrients to properly function, and when starved of these vital minerals the body begins to experience breakdowns. Therefore, IV nutrition is an essential part of a wellness routine.

How Does it Work?

IV nutritional therapy works by introducing nutrients directly into the bloodstream, avoiding the gastrointestinal system, allowing higher volumes of the nutrients to be absorbed by cells. For example, vitamins consumed via diet or pill introduce limited amounts of nutrients to the body, whereas IVs can provide the body with higher quantities of nutrients needed to properly replenish the body’s deficiencies.

A nutritional therapy session involves Dr. Goodbinder selecting the right IV recipe for a patient’s specific condition, followed by a nurse administering the IV fluid to the patient. Depending on the IV and the condition, an infusion can last anywhere from 20 minutes to several hours. IV nutritional therapy has shown to be a safe and effective option when administered by a trained medical team.
