what is intravenous nutrient therapy?

Vitamins and minerals provide the nutrients required for our cells to function optimally. Without these many diseased and dysfunctional states occur. Usually, these nutrients are acquired through our diet; however, in many cases, nutrients don’t actually reach our cells due to a variety of reasons such as: poor digestion, low stomach acid, inflammation, low activity of the immune system, and food sensitivities are common inhibitors.

Intravenous nutrient therapy is the infusion of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients into blood circulation to allow for easy and efficient absorption and get nutrients to therapeutic cellular levels. This makes IV therapy much faster acting and often more effective than orally administered therapies as they go more directly to cells and are given in the most absorbable forms. Dr. Della's IV therapies are specific to each patient’s needs by altering the types and amounts of nutrients in them. 

Which conditions can benefit from IV Therapy?

There are numerous conditions that can be improved by IV therapy, which include:

Common ingredients in a standard IV include Vitamin C, a blend of B vitamins, micronutrients like selenium, zinc, manganese, as well as maronutrients like calcium and magnesium. The most common IV given is a an IV Meyers, which is full of lots of good things.

The significant benefit of IV therapy is it bypasses the digestive system, which is commonly impaired, such as during times of stress or inflammation, causing poor absorption of nutrients from your food. By administering nutrients intravenously, we are able to achieve levels superior to oral supplementation, which can have a larger therapeutic impact.
