Intravenous (IV) nutrient infusions are an excellent way to help boost your immune system to decrease inflammation and help your body fight off infections, whether viral, bacterial, or fungal. They contain vitamins and minerals essential for health, immune support and healing. The IV drips vary depending on your goals.
An IV drip delivers vitamins and minerals straight into your bloodstream.
People with ‘leaky gut’ syndrome do not absorb vitamins and minerals well. If you have an inflammatory or autoimmune condition, your body may be missing out on much of the nutrition you eat because you don’t absorb it. In addition, when you’re ill, your body uses nutrients faster and may require increased amounts for proper healing.
When nutrients are given intravenously, they bypass your digestive system. Instead, the nutrients go straight to your cells, kick-starting healing and increased energy.
Dr. Liebowitz administers B vitamins, B12, low to high dose Vitamin C, and Glutathione, which reach much greater concentrations in your blood than taking vitamin supplements orally. These infusions can be combined with intravenous ozone treatments to further boost your immune response and increase your energy level.
If you have a compromised immune system, such as from an autoimmune disorder, or are recovering from illness, surgery, or chemotherapy, you may find an improved immune response, becoming less susceptible to viruses and other ailments.
Patients with the following symptoms have shown improvement with intravenous nutrient infusions:
Some physicians also observe improvements in athletic performance.
Just as with other medical treatments, IV therapy isn’t appropriate for everyone. Those with congestive heart failure may want to avoid infusions because the amount of fluid can stress your body. If you take certain medications, you may not be a good candidate for IV infusions.
Dr. Liebowitz assesses your individual condition and determines if intravenous nutrient infusions can benefit you.
