IV Nutrition Therapy in Naples, Florida
The benefits of IV nutrition programs have been described as life changing. While the IV nutrition programs offered at Renew Regenerative Medicine are individually tailored, the programs can be specifically designed for helping with: boosting energy, improving one’s immune system, lowering blood pressure, improving circulation, improving brain fog, treating the cold and slowing degenerative processes.
What is IV Nutrition Therapy and How Does it Work?
IV nutrition works as an infusion of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients into the blood stream. A small catheter is inserted into the vein and it is connected by a plastic tube to a bag filled with nutrients. This is the most effective and powerful way to deliver nutrients to your body and brain. Sometimes, the absorption of nutrients from your stomach can be very poor – and no matter what you eat or drink, you may not be getting more than 10 percent of the intake into your blood system. As you get older, the absorption of nutrients becomes even worse. The phrase, “You are what you eat,” would be much more accurate as, “You are what you absorb.” You can take over 100 different vitamins or supplements by mouth, but if you are not absorbing them, it is a waste of money. However, when you get IV nutrients, you are getting 100 percent of the nutrients into your blood system. From there, the nutrients are delivered to all the cells in your body.
As we age we become more nutritionally deficient. Later, this can reportedly result in damage to your DNA – damage that can lead to premature aging, chronic disease, cancer and early death. IV nutrition therapy presents a powerful way to help the body at a cellular level to be more efficient and to also repair itself from the toxic environment that we live in. Therapies that help repair the damages we encounter are called regenerative medicine. IV nutrition therapy is a cornerstone for regenerative medicine.
Renew Regenerative Medicine’s IV therapies usually last from 30 minutes to one hour. Total treatment courses vary, but usually consist initially of 10 to 20 IV therapy sessions, with monthly follow-up treatments.
How Renew Regenerative Medicine Can Help
IV Nutrition Therapy at Renew Regenerative Medicine is effective for conditions such as:
Fatigue is one of the most common health complaints treated with IV nutrient therapy. Often associated with chronic stress, fatigue can often reduce one’s quality of life. There are many possible causes of fatigue and some include poor nutrition, prolonged stress, following a cold or flu, IBS and inflammatory bowel diseases, celiac disease, anemia, and hormonal imbalances found with an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), PMS, menopause, and adrenal dysfunction.
Despite eating a healthy diet, in some cases the intestines may not be adequately absorbing nutrients from food, leading to nutrient deficiencies. This is otherwise called intestinal malabsorption. It is usually associated with health conditions that cause inflammation damaging the absorptive surfaces of the intestines. A sensitive digestive system may make it difficult to take vitamins and nutrients as oral supplements. Genetic predisposition, allergies, and autoimmune conditions lead to an inflammatory response. Some of the most common conditions are:
- Inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
- Celiac disease
- IBS and food allergies can also be associated with nutrient deficiencies.
Athletic Performance Enhancement
During exercise our bodies convert carbohydrates, proteins, and fats by using enzymes that depend on certain nutrients for proper functioning. These include: magnesium, b-vitamins, vitamin c, and zinc. Competitive athletes push themselves to the limit and require large amounts of these nutrients. In addition, muscle fatigue after strenuous exercise results in part from oxidative stress caused by free radicals that are produced. Anti-oxidants such as glutathione can help reduce these free radicals. IV nutrient therapy helps athletes to:
- Boost performance and increase strength
- Reduce fatigue and improve recovery time
Cold / Flu and Immune Function
Our bodies are constantly exposed to the damaging effects of free radicals. This damage plays an important role in the development of inflammation and many chronic illnesses, such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. Our bodies have built-in antioxidant systems to help us deal with free radicals, but we also depend on antioxidants from outside sources. These come in the form of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that serve to protect and repair cells from damage. Free radicals can also compromise our immune systems. Antioxidants that reduce the damage caused by free radicals help to support the immune system in fighting off infections such as the cold and flu.
Vitamin C has long been used to help decrease the duration of the cold and flu, as well as reduce the severity of symptoms. B-complex vitamins, such as Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and Vitamin B12 have also been used for this purpose. The combination of these vitamins may be responsible for boosting your immunity, so your own immune system can fight off the cold or flu more effectively and you feel better faster.
Wound Healing After Surgery
Collagen provides structural integrity and support for the skin. Collagen production in the body depends on nutrients such as Vitamin C and Zinc. During and after surgery the body requires these nutrients in large amounts. Vitamin C taken orally in high doses may cause diarrhea making it difficult to achieve the effective levels required and is best accomplished through IV administration. Treatments before and after surgery are recommended for optimal effects.
Other conditions that IV nutrient therapy may benefit include:
- Fibromyalgia and muscle spasms
- PMS signs and symptoms
- Lack of Vitalty
