IV VITAMIN NUTRITION THERAPY

Active Family Healthcare’s IV Vitamin Nutrition Program

IV VITAMIN NUTRITION THERAPY

We have all seen advertisements for IV therapy, but what is this all about? Does it even work? Is it worth the poke to get an IV?  If you suffer from chronic headaches/migraines, fatigue, fibromyalgia, post COVID symptoms, stress, anxiety, depression or allergies you should consider it.

Why IV Nutrition Therapy at Active Family Healthcare? 

IV nutrition is based on giving high dose vitamins intravenously to the bloodstream which helps promote higher levels in the body as we are not reliant on the gastrointestinal system for absorption. This allows you to feel more energy quickly and obtain higher levels of vitamins in the body than by taking it orally. Furthermore, these vitamins are infused with IV fluids to help hydrate the body as well.

What is in IV Nutrition Therapy?

We use a standard protocol called a Myers’ infusion which has been around for over 40 years. It was developed to treat chronic fatigue, asthma and headaches/migraines (and still used to this day for these conditions plus many more). The standard ingredients in a Myers cocktail are magnesium, vitamin C, calcium, B vitamins, all important vitamins for optimal body functioning and energy. The Myers’ infusion has also been found to help boost the immune system- which can help with asthma, allergies and overall well being.

With advancing medical research we are able to customize this infusion to meet your health goals and needs. Here are some examples of how we can adjust IV nutrition for you:

  • Have a migraine that just will not go away? We can adjust the ingredients in the Myers’ cocktail to treat that migraine while adding a pain reliever medication as well.
  • Suffering from chronic fatigue, brain fog and poor exercise tolerance after COVID illness? We can add the ingredient NAD+ (nicotinamine adenin dinucleotide) to the infusion which newer research is showing becomes depleted with COVID infection, especially in athletes, people with diabetes or over the age of 65. NAD+ is also a great addition for athletic recovery, depression, auto-immune disease, chronic fatigue and brain fog not related to COVID.
  • Iron deficient? We are able to offer iron infusions for iron deficiency too This works really well for people that have trouble absorbing iron through their GI system or who don’t tolerate oral iron.

IV nutrition is a great way to supplement your healthy practices to promote more energy, athletic recovery and overall well-being. Furthermore, it can be used to treat active problems as well such as depression, fatigue and migraines. Schedule an appointment with your Active Family Healthcare provider to discuss if IV nutrition therapy would work for you!

NAD+ Info:

NAD+ is a coenzyme that helps in the production of ATP, which is our cell’s energy source.  By helping with ATP production, NAD+ helps fuel our muscle cells promoting muscle development and recovery, decreasing overall fatigue and helps with metabolism. NAD+ is also needed by Sirtuins (a protein molecule in our bodies).   Sirutin is responsible for inflammatory reactions, antioxidant expression and stress responses.  By increasing NAD+ Sirtuin has the co-enzyme to help with brain fog, stress, mental clarity, depression, concentration and mood. 

NAD+ is actually being studied currently with its role in acute and post COVID infections as well.  Newer research is showing NAD+ becomes depleted with COVID infection, especially in athletes, people with diabetes or over the age of 65. There are theories that replacing the lower NAD levels can help with some of the post COVID symptoms. 

NAD+ does have to be infused slowly so plan on spending at least 1-2 hours with us.
