A healthy diet rich in vitamins and minerals is the best way to nourish your body. There are instances, though, when the body has trouble obtaining these nutrients through natural digestive functions. Conditions such as stress, a medical illness, or food intolerances can inhibit the absorption of important substances such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, folic acid, glutathione, or biotin. In these cases, injecting those nutrients directly into the bloodstream may be the best option to ensure that your body is getting what it needs. This is the goal of IV nutritional therapy.
Intravenous nutrients provide your body with a higher concentration of nutrients that you are able to absorb by taking the nutrient orally. Some nutrients can not get to the bloodstream in the useful form, because they get broken down by the digestive process first. Glutathione is an example of this. It can be taken orally in liposomal form to give you small increases in blood levels, but if you want to use it therapeutically, intravenous delivery is far more effective.
There are numerous nutrients available for Nutrient IV Therapy at Root Causes.
Here is just a short list of some of the numerous ways that IV therapy can improve your health:
IV therapy can introduce nutrients that help your body remove toxins like mercury which can harm almost any organ.
Free radicals that degenerate eye sight and contribute to conditions such as macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy can be reduced with an injection of antioxidants.
The proper blend of nutrients can strengthen your arteries, making it easier for the heart to circulate blood through your body.
A combination of ingredients can combat a number of symptoms associated with the aging process, such as a loss of skin elasticity, weight gain, fatigue, and illness.
IV therapy may also be used in cancer therapy and to treat autoimmune diseases and neurological conditions.
There are a number of IV therapies designed to either treat specific conditions or just promote overall wellness. Here are some of the most common:
This particular blend was developed in the 1970s by Doctor John Myers at Johns Hopkins University. It has been used to treat a number of conditions such as fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, muscle spasm, asthma, hives, congestive heart failure, chest pain, infections, and senile dementia. This is a staple in optimizing health.
This substance improves liver and brain functions, leading to improved memory while helping to lower the risk of conditions such as dementia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, neuropathy, and liver disease. Glutathione is the master antioxidant. It is a key component in anti-aging IV therapy.
Although this vitamin is commonly found in supplement form, an IV injection can provide a much higher dose than what can be obtained by taking it orally. Vitamin C is used to fight chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. It is also key in anti-aging IV therapy.
Chelation therapy involves administering specific agents (orally, rectally, or intravenously) to bind toxic compounds in the blood or tissues of the body.
This treatment helps those suffering from diabetes by improving insulin sensitivity and lowering blood sugar levels. Alpha-Lipoic acid is also used for anti-aging, cancer treatment and detoxification from substances like Fluoroquinolones.
Encourages the body to release single oxygen molecules into the bloodstream to kill viruses, bacteria, cancer cells, and make it easier for the liver and kidneys to remove toxins.
Phosphatidylcholine, or PTC, is a phospholipid or essential fatty acid, such as Omega 3’s & Omega 6’s. The choline in PTC is an essential amino acid that is important for the function of all cells. It must be consumed through diet because our bodies do not produce a sufficient amount of PTC. The IV route is preferred because it is more readily absorbed by the body than the oral route.
Mistletoe therapy is one of the most widely-used cancer therapies in Europe. Here in the US, it is currently under study through Johns Hopkins. Root Causes is proud to be an approved study site. The Mistletoe clinical trial at Johns Hopkins will be a Phase 1 trial, in which researchers will be testing the drug on a small group of participants to evaluate safety, determine a safe dose, and identify side effects. This is the first step of many research steps before mistletoe can be considered for conventional use in cancer treatment.
Root Causes Holistic Health and Medicine has partnered with the wonderful organization, Believe Big, to help you explore Mistletoe as a healing option. Right now, Root Causes only offers the subcutaneous injections. But watch our website, because we will soon be certified to administer the intravenous protocol as well.
