The Benefits of IV Therapy
By Dr. Kam Tecaya
Intravenous (IV) therapy is a profoundly effective method of delivering nutrients to the cells. IV therapy allows for rapid and immediate nutrient absorption because the nutrients are introduced directly into your bloodstream bypassing your stomach and intestines. Many people suffering from acute or chronic illnesses have less than optimal digestion, which results in poorly assimilated food and inadequate absorption of nutrients. Used in hospitals for quick response time and higher effectiveness, IV therapy can be used for general health conditions as well. Here at NatureMedica we have great success using IV therapy for everything from the common cold to severe autoimmune diseases.
Scientific research has shown that getting nutrient status high in the serum and intercellular tissues has profound beneficial effects that cannot be reached with oral supplementation due to gastrointestinal effects. With IV Therapy, patients’ nutrient levels rise more significantly and have tremendous effects on metabolism, energy, and disease prevention and treatment. IV nutrients can be beneficial for numerous purposes including:
- Environmental Toxicity
- Immune system deficiencies
- Adrenal Rejuvenation
- Chronic fatigue
- Tissue and wound healing
- Autoimmune Condition
- Migraine Headaches
- Gastric Bypass
- Respiratory Illness
- Diabetic & Peripheral Neuropathies
- General Wellness
- Anti-aging and more
Because our IV’s contain high amounts of nutrients, new patients to our clinic will need to book a 15-minute initial appointment with one of our doctors to assess your health condition and goals. We also require a copy of your recent blood work (CBC & CMP) that is less than a year old to assess kidney and liver function. If you do not have this, we can do this test for a low fee. Existing patients will just need to call and request approval from their current doctor.
All of our IV solutions can be custom formulated for your specific, individual needs and circumstances. So come relax in our IV room for 30-90 minutes while receiving your nutrients. Feel free to bring your device to watch videos or listen to your own music (please bring earbuds). Many of our patients read a book or magazine while others prefer to take a nap!
Give us a call at 520-887-4287 to schedule an appointment and experience for yourself the tremendous health benefits of IV therapy.
