Intravenous (IV) Therapy represents an exciting treatment paradigm in functional medicine, and P3 Health is pleased to offer medically-supervised IV therapy in disease prevention and treatment , as well as for health optimization.

WHAT IS IV THERAPY?

Intravenous (IV) or IV Micronutrient Therapy (IVMT) is a medical treatment consisting of sterile solutions of minerals, vitamins and other nutrients that are infused directly into the blood stream. IVMT has a safe history of application when administered by well-trained professionals. It may offer health benefits by improving the energy levels and function of your cells and tissues.

This route of administration bypasses the gastrointestinal system, and allows for serum levels of vitamins that are not otherwise achievable through oral or intramuscular administration. The IV route of administration also bypasses the digestive upset that may occur with high-dose vitamin ingestion. This increase in serum level of minerals and vitamins allows for the pharmacological properties of these nutrients to exert an even greater effect.

WHY IV THERAPY?

IV therapy is a fast delivery method that allows for enhanced absorption, and therefore greater effect of nutrients, and more efficient repletion of vitamin deficiency. IV therapy delivers nutrients directly into the blood stream, making them immediately available for use.

Due to fewer side-effects from bypassing the digestive system, IV therapy enables high-dose nutrient administration, that may not otherwise be possible through oral or intra-muscular IM administration. This allows for faster, more effective treatment outcomes.

This is especially beneficial in those who suffer from inflammatory bowel disease, malabsorption, or leaky gut, all of whom have impaired nutrient absorption. In these cases, IV therapy is the most effective route.

WHEN TO USE IV THERAPY?

The evidence supporting IVMT continues to emerge, with research suggesting benefit in many conditions including:

  • Energy Optimization
  • Chronic Pain; Neuropathy, Inflammatory Conditions (arthritis)
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Fibromyalgia
  • Dehydration
  • Muscle cramps & spams; Musculoskeletal repair, Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Cardiovascular and Lung health (Angina, High Blood Pressure, Asthma)
  • Immune Support: Antimicrobial support; Chronic Bacterial Infection (Sinuses), Antiviral (eg. Epstein Barr Virus, Influenza)
  • Anti Histamine Support ; Allergies
  • Digestive Disorders; IBS, Celiac Disease, Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis 0 Migraines
  • Lyme Disease
  • Heavy Metal Toxicity
  • And more …
