Intravenous therapies involve administering nutrients directly into the bloodstream. This delivery system circumvents the loss of potency due to breakdown in the gastrointestinal tract and poor absorption of some nutrients taken orally.
Do I have a Vitamin Deficiency?
Vitamin deficiencies are not just a reflection of lifestyle, but also what we surround ourselves with. Since we are all biochemically unique, nutrient deficiencies will vary from patient to patient, and do not necessarily correlate with conditions. Many factors beyond diet determine whether nutrient function is adequate. These include stress, absorption, metabolism, genetic predisposition, age, disease conditions, and medications.
Poor nutrition, chronic stress, improper sleeping patterns, and lack of physical activity all contribute to premature aging, loss of skin elasticity, weight gain, abdominal fat, anxiety/depression, digestive disorders, skin problems, fatigue, and illness. Learning how to manage your lifestyle is key to slowing the aging process and retaining youth. A healthy diet – high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytochemicals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, fiber and amino acids – along with proper sleep, exercise and stress management techniques, are all necessary for retaining youth and slowing the aging process.
