Custom IV Nutritional Therapy Q & A
What is intravenous (infusion) nutrition therapy?
Intravenous (IV) nutrition therapy is a way to deliver vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants directly into your bloodstream. IV therapy is the best way for a patient to receive a high dose of needed nutrients because the small intestine can only absorb a limited amount of many nutrients at one time.
An IV infusion also ensures that more nutrients make it to cells throughout the body — and they get there quickly — because they bypass the digestive tract.
The procedure is performed as a one-time push, which means Dr. Kim inserts the IV, he mixes all of the nutrients into the same solution, and the IV delivers them into the bloodstream all at once.
What nutrients are administered via IV?
Depending on your health condition, Dr. Kim makes a modified IV cocktail that incorporates the specific nutrients you need. However, there are some common options available, as well.
The nutrient mix most commonly used is called a Myers’ cocktail, after the doctor who developed the first IV nutrition treatment. The Myers’ cocktail contains magnesium, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C, which can be mixed together at various doses.
Dr. Kim can also use IV therapy to administer glutathione, which is one of the body’s most potent antioxidants. It fills many cellular and metabolic roles and is essential for detoxifying the liver and other organs.
What health conditions benefit from IV nutrition therapy?
Vitamins and minerals are essential for every function in the body, so a deficiency can quickly lead to health problems. If blood tests show you’re deficient, IV nutrition therapy is a good option for getting levels back to normal before disease develops.
Dr. Kim often uses IV nutrition therapy to treat:
- Colds and flu
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Chronic inflammation
- Oxidative stress
- Anxiety and depression
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Athletes who desire enhanced performance
If you have any of the above conditions, or you just want a well-being boost, Dr. Kim can create an IV solution for you. To learn more, call to schedule your first appointment at Coastal Anti-Aging Medical Group today.
