Why Do I Need IV Vitamin Therapy?

When we were kids, our parents tried everything to get us to eat correctly so that we’d get all our vitamins. Then, along came the Flintstone vitamin. These chalky caricatures of our favorite Hannah-Barbara cartoon were the answer to many a parent’s prayer. Do your kids only want to eat chicken nuggets? No problem. Throw a couple of these sweet, purple, orange, or red pieces of chalk on the plate, call it a treat, and voila! 


The Problems with Pill Vitamins

But just like everything else in life, what was sufficient in childhood to maintain health and vitality isn’t sufficient as we age. As an adult, I think you know that taking a couple of flintstones a day isn’t going to help you prevent or recover from any illness. On top of that, taking vitamins daily or twice daily just isn’t convenient in today’s fast-paced world. The pills are huge; you must take ten or more to cover all your concerns, and here’s the kicker: You’re not even getting the amount of the vitamin listed on the bottle…

When you take a vitamin, your body must digest it first. That means it must go through an extremely acidic environment (your stomach) in order to get absorbed into the body. Research shows that up to 80% of the vitamin is lost during the digestive process. For example, if your vitamin bottle says you’re taking 10,000 milligrams of vitamin C, the best-case scenario is you’re only receiving about 2,000 milligrams after digestion.

Then to complicate things, if you have Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis or diverticulosis, gastroparesis, stomach ulcers, and a whole host of other digestive issues that occur as we age, you greatly diminish your ability to absorb the nutrients found in those horse pills you’re trying to swallow.


IV Vitamin Absorption

So how does IV vitamin therapy benefit you? For starters, IV vitamins are delivered directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system completely. So any stomach or intestinal issues you may have are inconsequential and do not affect or degrade the IV vitamins in any way.

In IV vitamin therapy, the vitamins enter the bloodstream via your veins and are delivered directly to the cells with a near 100% absorption rate. Suppose you order 10,000 milligrams of vitamin C. In that case, you’re getting 10,000 milligrams of vitamin C. Knowing how much of each vitamin you receive is very beneficial in measuring the efficacy of your vitamin therapy, especially in treatments such as for cancer or other chronic diseases.

And let’s not forget convenience… Taking pill vitamins sometimes requires you to swallow pills the size of your big toe multiple times a day! Ain’t nobody got time for that! In addition, most must be taken with food, or they upset your stomach. And don’t take them too late in the day, or they will keep you up at night… It just isn’t the most convenient of systems in our already busy lives. With IV vitamin therapy, just one 30-to-45-minute session once or twice a month is all it takes to improve your health, fight off disease, and live a better life.


But isn’t IV therapy expensive?

It’s not as expensive as an ER visit, and it’s not as expensive as taking a week off work from being sick. Those who don’t make time for their health will eventually have to make time for their illness. In America, for whatever reason, we like to wait until our bodies break down before we seek help. Take control of your health. By incorporating a preventative approach to your health instead of a reactive approach to illness, you can dramatically improve your quality of life.


Take Away

IV vitamin therapy is not a new concept. Since the 1960s, healthcare professionals have helped improve their patients’ lives with IV vitamins. However, we don’t see prevention on the healthcare spectrum as a culture. We ignore or downplay illness until these amazing machines God gave us called our bodies can no longer function properly. Then we seek help from a medical community that is more interested in giving you a pill that only covers up a symptom so they can get a kickback from a pharmaceutical company than they are about actually helping you overcome your illness. It’s time to get your life back. It’s time to stop illness before it even starts. It’s time to make IV vitamin therapy a part of your health routine.

Have a blessed day!
