Video Transcript


Hello everyone; it’s Joya from Nourish House Calls. Today, I’d like to share some insights on IV Nutrition Therapy, a treatment I personally use and recommend to my patients.

Understanding IV Nutrition Therapy

When feeling the onset of an illness, like a sore throat, IV Nutrition Therapy can be a quick and effective response. This treatment involves administering a combination of vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream. The concoction typically includes vitamin C, zinc, B complex, B12, and magnesium.

Benefits and Efficiency

The primary goal of this therapy is to reduce the duration and severity of illnesses such as flu, cold, or stomach bugs. In some cases, it may even prevent sickness altogether, which is particularly useful for those with busy schedules who can’t afford downtime.

The process is relatively quick, usually taking 20 to 30 minutes, and is generally painless except for the initial injection. One of the key advantages of IV Nutrition Therapy over oral supplements is its efficiency. While oral supplements have an absorption rate of about 30 to 40%, IV therapy ensures 100% absorption of the vitamins, bypassing the gastrointestinal tract and liver.

Higher Dosage, No GI Distress

Another significant benefit of this therapy is the ability to administer higher doses of vitamins without gastrointestinal side effects. For instance, a 20-gram dose of vitamin C through IV would cause gastrointestinal distress if taken orally. IV therapy allows for high doses with no diarrhea or loose stools, making it a powerful tool for boosting immunity, performance, cognitive function, sleep, and energy, depending on the vitamin blend used.
