What is high dose IV vitamin therapy?
For many years, practitioners have used vitamin supplementation to help treat health conditions. I’m not saying here that dietary supplements are the answer to everyone’s prayers. But they can and do boost our immune system, help us absorb minerals, and at the right doses can improve health.
But why in this modern age of plenty do we need dietary supplements? Over the last 5 years, there have been stories about scurvy making a comeback which is basically inadequate levels of Vitamin C. this causes sore joints, bleeding gums and chronic fatigue like symptoms.
As I have written about before modern agriculture, processing, packaging, and cooking destroys the nutrient values of food. So, we do not get the essential amounts of vitamins and minerals we require to live a healthy life.
One of the best ways to get essential nutrients into our systems is by having IV therapy infusions because it enters our bloodstream it doesn’t need to be digested in the gut. This maximises the efficiency of the nutrients and therefore we have less expensive urine. Also, our gut couldn’t metabolise the high doses of say Vitamin C which at the doses we will discuss would cause a laxative effect.
IV therapy should always be administered by a trained medical expert, like a nurse or doctor. They insert a needle into a vein in the arm which is then attached to an IV drip bag, which contains the nutrient mix required for a vitamin infusion.
The Health Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy and Antioxidants
Antioxidants can stop oxidation. Oxidation produces free radicals which in turn can damage our cells. But what are these antioxidants? Here are a few we can use to great effect through IV Therapy;
Glutathione (GSH) is the most abundant antioxidant in humans and has multiple functions. GSH reduces oxidative stress, and it is essential for the removal and detoxification of carcinogens, according to The Journal of Cell Biology. Another Journal this time the Journal of Cancer and Therapy said that glutathione deficiency, might lead to cancer. Various other studies have shown the benefits of GSH, these include arthritis, psoriasis, fatty liver disease, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, autism and many others.
