Intravenous Nutrient Therapy (IVNT) is a treatment used to infuse vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other natural therapeutic substances directly into the body’s bloodstream through a vein. Intravenous Nutrient Therapy is extremely effective in getting high dose nutrients into the body’s circulation system and to the cells where the nutrients are needed, by bypassing the digestive system. Whereas oral absorption may be 1-25%, IVNT delivers 100% of the nutrients to cells for their repair and optimal health benefit.

If after an initial consultation with the doctor we determine that IVNT will be beneficial, a detailed patient specific IVNT plan will be formulated. Several factors are considered when customizing the plan, such as: detailed medical and nutritional history, symptom analysis, gastrointestinal status, and blood lab testing. Other testing may be done to evaluate a patient’s ability to absorb nutrients that aide and support the absorption of other required bodily nutrients. Most importantly, when formulating customized IVNT components for the patient, we take into consideration the therapeutic effects of various nutrients on the specific disease state being addressed. IVNT sessions, depending on whether they are “push” or “drip”, can last anywhere from 10 minutes to 3 hours, with an average session lasting 45-60 minutes. Throughout the course of treatment, patient progress will be monitored and assessed by the doctor. IVNT is a safe and effective therapy using natural substances in high quantities, which enables accelerated healing for optimal health. When administered by a trained and qualified doctor, Intravenous Nutrient Therapy is extremely safe and side effects are rare, almost always limited to irritation at the site of the injection, which might cause minor discomfort. The most common sensations are heat and flushing (a magnesium effect), hypotension (lowered blood pressure) and changes in blood sugar. In addition to general health optimization, almost any condition can benefit from high dose Intravenous Nutrient Therapy. Click “Conditions Treated Using IVNT” for a complete list.
