IV therapy is a medical treatment designed to provide the body with the specific nutrients and resources it needs to heal and repair.
The human body requires vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other vital nutrients to function. Over time, because of medications, poor quality diet, prolonged stress, exposure to environmental factors, and genetics can leave the body depleted. The first signs of this depletion usually show up in the skin, hair, nails, joints and non essential organ systems; essentially, the body steals nutrients from these areas to fuel the vital systems (ex. heart and lungs). When depletion is mild, dietary changes and supplementation can restore these resources. But when one becomes clinically drained, IV therapy is essential to recovery.
A significant amount of our nutrients from food and supplementation are lost in the digestive process, even more so with those with long term gut issues or have had surgical removal of digestive organs such as the gallbladder or colon resections. IV therapy bypasses the gut and goes straight to the blood stream providing immediate absorption. Furthermore, because of the limited receptivity of the GI system, IV therapy can provide the body with 10-100 times more vital nutrients than standard food and supplementation.
How do we get depleted?
The body requires resources to perform daily activities, much like a car requires gasoline. When the body is not getting the vital nutrients it needs, the first sign is usually degrees of fatigue. This is the body’s way of conserving its resources by shutting down. The longer one is forced to operate through this depleted state, the degree of fatigue can become extreme.
The hair is made up of keratin proteins. Making new healthy hair cells requires a significant amount of nutrient reserves. When the body is operating in a deficit, it sees hair as a non essential use of resources (you can survive without hair) so it will allocate those vital nutrients to other organ systems. This can leave one with fine brittle hair or hair loss.
The nails, like the hair, require a large amount of resources to grow healthy and strong. When nutrients are pulled from the nails, we will see many of the following symptoms:
Because of the amount of high quality nutrition the nails require to be healthy and strong, malnutrition can often show its earliest signs in the nails.
The skin is the largest organ in the body, therefore requires a lot to maintain healthy glowing skin. Furthermore, the skin generates new cells at a very rapid rate, even more so contributing to the overall demand. Malnourished individuals can develop any of the following:
The joints are a mineral rich source of many of the body’s most vital resources. While the joints are essential for optimal function and quality of life, in a deficit, the body knows that joints are not required to maintain life. Therefore, in a depleted state, in addition to the joint not getting what they need to heal and repair, nutrients can actually be stripped from the bones and tissues. Overtime, this can lead to premature wear and tear, arthritis, osteoporosis, predisposition towards injury and chronic pain conditions.
One can easily consume a high calorie diet that contains little to no nutrients. In fact, it is becoming harder and harder to find nutrient dense foods in America.
