IV Therapy starts by infusing a one-liter bag of sterile solutions containing electrolytes with or without medications or vitamins and infusing by gravity over time.
IV administration of nutrients can achieve blood concentrations not obtainable with drinking fluids, ingesting pills, or even intramuscular (IM) administration.
IV Therapy may be more effective for correcting nutrient deficits inside cells, where they are needed. In certain disease states, the capacity of nutrients to get in and stay inside the cells may get diminished.
IV administration helps get those nutrients inside the cells. If cells are repeatedly “flooded” with nutrients, the improvement may be cumulative in their ability to heal and improve their illness/condition.
