Nutritional Intravenous Therapy
One option that may be recommended on your healing journey is Nutritional Intravenous Therapy (NIT). This form of therapy was pioneered by Dr. John Myers and is commonly known as the Myers’ cocktail. Intravenous vitamin therapy involves water-soluble vitamins and minerals to be administered through an IV drip. Since then, Naturopathic Doctors have expanded their knowledge of intravenous, also known as parenteral therapy, and Myers’ basic drip to develop treatments for several ailments such as fatigue, hypertension, and migraines.
How Does IV Therapy Work?
This method involves a combination of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients specific to the patient that stimulates their body’s healing systems. Proper nutrition is gained at a cellular level because it is administered directly into the bloodstream. One benefit to this type of therapy is that it bypasses gastrointestinal absorption. This means you can avoid the risk of an upset stomach or the loss of potency of the substances in the IV. This results in a higher blood concentration of nutrients that can’t usually be achieved through capsules or oral treatments.
Intravenous therapy is one of many options that Dr. Kemmouche may recommend for your healing. Since she does not rush to thoroughly understand your health and lifestyle, she will know if this treatment is the best for you compared to other options. How you live and the condition of your health is unique. The same treatment protocol may not work as well for one patient as it does for another depending on the situation.
Dr. Kemmouche has extensive experience in providing NIT and intramuscular nutritional injections with customized formulae. She takes the time and care required to ensure that you receive the formula that will produce the desired results for your health. For a nutritional IV or injection, the most common ingredients are usually antioxidants, B vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, amino acids, and vitamin D.
What Conditions Does IV Therapy Treat?
If you’re suffering from conditions such as chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, respiratory issues, or problems with your immune system, with this treatment you could start feeling refreshed and energized right away. Your customized treatment can help you fight off toxins, prevent illness, and maintain optimal vitamin levels in your body to feel more like yourself while enjoying a higher level of relaxation.
