Intravenous vitamin therapy is an excellent way to deliver nutrients and necessary biological components to your body. However, there are many counterintuitive misconceptions about it due to a lack of knowledge and information.
Some common misconceptions include:
- You need to be sick to benefit from IV vitamin therapy
- It’s safe to ingest vitamins at any dose
- It can’t help with acute and chronic illness and disease
- Vitamins are not medicine
- IV vitamin therapy is an adjunct and “alternative” treatment
Many physicians are moving toward more functionally-based practices, addressing physiological deficiencies through a combination of oral and IV nutraceutical intervention, as well as pharmaceutical intervention when indicated. This is not only a safer medical model, protecting patients from potential side effects of avoidable drug prescribing, but actually is based on the premise of treating the root of a condition, not just relieving symptoms.
IV vitamin therapy, when under the care of a qualified physician, and especially in a qualified/dedicated environment is a powerful, first-line option for treating:
- Chronic disease
- Immune dysfunction
- High stress levels
- Disease recovery
- Surgery recovery
However, in weaker forms, IV vitamin therapy works well preventatively and helps increase people’s well-being and quality of life. It can also be very beneficial in exercise recovery for those concerned with optimal athletic performance.
Vitamins and nutraceuticals, especially intravenous, are powerful medicine. They cannot be ingested at just any dose safely, and are best prescribed and monitored by a physician. They can help you recover from illness, and help you to not get sick.
IV therapy goes straight into your bloodstream, bypassing your digestive system, thus becoming more bioavailable. Many oral supplements do not have a high level of absorption, and people who are depleted will definitely benefit from the lightened load and influx of direct nutrition.
When getting high-dose IV vitamin therapy, it’s important that a physician properly tests certain blood markers to ensure safety. Intravenous vitamin therapy is a load on your body, and you always want to make sure you’re getting exactly what you need, in a safe environment.
