Vitamin/Mineral Therapy and Injections

Intravenous (IV) therapy is the medical practice of injecting vitamins and minerals directly into a patient’s veins instead of prescribing pill, capsule or liquid supplements. It is a safe and effective treatment for a variety of ailments associated with insufficient vitamin and mineral levels as well as chronic health issues arising from poor immune system functioning.

How Vitamin and Mineral IV Injections Benefit Your Health

Because vitamin and mineral oral supplements require extensive assimilation and conversion processes that begin in the liver or stomach, the body does not receive the high levels of pure nutrition provided by intravenous injections of vitamins and minerals. Moreover, when people consume rather than introduce larger than normal amounts of vitamins through intravenous injection, this attempt to replace vitamin compounds lost during conversion usually results in gastrointestinal problems such as nausea, diarrhea and cramping.

Cells need the raw materials provided by vitamins and minerals in order to function. Without them, they cannot initiate vital metabolic processes essential to our overall health. Although most of us obtain essential nutrients by eating the right foods, even consuming a diet rich with fruits, vegetables and grains may not give the body the pure power that vitamin/mineral injections provide in order to remain dynamic and healthy.

Many people suffer from medical issues they may not be aware of, such as food allergies, compromised immune systems or poor digestion simply because the symptoms of these issues are often interpreted erroneously as arising from another, separate illness. Even though a person may be taking oral vitamin and mineral supplements, his or her body is simply unable to efficiently convert and transport adequate amounts of nutrients to cells due to one or more of these conditions.

When patients receive injections of vitamins directly into the veins, they generally start to feel better within hours after the procedure. For example, IV therapy that introduces vitamin C directly into the bloodstream provides superior protection against bacteria and viruses that cause colds, influenza and bronchitis because the vitamin is not forced to undergo conversion within the stomach and intestines. These organs are where much of the effectiveness of vitamins is lost.

Vitamin/Mineral IV Therapy Used For The Following Illnesses:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Asthma
  • Migraines
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Chronic sinusitis
  • Allergies
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
Even people who normally experience good health can enhance their overall physical and cognitive well-being by periodically experiencing vitamin/mineral injections. Browse and explore through the Vitamin and Mineral IV Therapies and Injections offered at Armonk Integrative Medicine below…

IV Vitamin B12

B12 is a vitamin essential to the normal functioning of the entire nervous system as well as to the formation of red blood cells. Benefits of vitamin B12 injections include:

  • Eliminates fatigue by boosting energy levels
  • A combination of folic acid/vitamin B12/vitamin B6 injections may reduce levels of homocysteine, an amino acid that contributes to heart disease
  • Delays the progression of Alzheimer’s disease (research has revealed that most Alzheimer’s patients lack sufficient amounts of vitamin B12)
  • Aids in protecting DNA from free radicals (molecules that contribute to the aging process)

IV Myer's Cocktail

Created by physician Dr. John Myers, the Myer’s cocktail is a special combination of
vitamins and minerals capable of treating many health issues such as chronic fatigue syndrome, allergies, asthma and fibromyalgia. These illnesses lack sufficient amounts of specific nutrients that Dr. Myer has included in his cocktail, such as magnesium, several B vitamins, vitamin C and calcium.

IV Magnesium

About half of the body’s magnesium is located in the bones, with the remainder found in tissue and organ cells. Needed to precipitate enzymatic processes, magnesium is essential for good health and also assists the body in performing over 300 biochemical operations. IV magnesium benefits patients by:

  • Enhancing neuronal communication in the brain by aiding neurotransmitter production and transmission
  • Relieves angina pain and helps steady abnormal heart rhythms
  • Inhibits osteoporosis by promoting bone density
  • Lowers high blood pressure through vasodilation
  • Alleviates edema suffered by pregnant women
  • Advantageous in managing diabetes and heart disease
Additionally, by decreasing acetylcholine levels in the brain, IV magnesium may also help diminish seizures associated with epilepsy or abnormalities in brain architecture.

IV Calcium

Rich amounts of the mineral calcium are stored in the teeth and bones. Calcium is also necessary for muscle flexibility, regulation of the endocrine system and nervous system functioning, specifically in regards to communicating expeditiously with all parts of the body.

Intravenous injections of calcium can also greatly benefit people who experience problems with calcium absorption. These people include:

  • Women who are considered post menopausal (usually 55 and older) are susceptible to bone loss due to the body’s decreasing ability to absorb calcium.
  • People who suffer from lactose intolerance and cannot drink milk
  • Vegetarians
  • Both men and women over 60
  • Kidney patients who have excess amounts of potassium in their blood, a condition called hyperkalemia

IV Glutathione

Glutathione (abbreviated as GSH) is an antioxidant tripeptide that plays a significant role in preventing cell damage caused by free radicals which is found and produced in all of the cells of the body. It plays a crucial role in helping the body get rid of free radicals and toxins. Because of the powerful benefits it provides, it is also known as “the mother of all antioxidants”. Unfortunately, many people are deficient in Glutathione due to a poor diet, pollution, medications, household chemicals, stress, trauma, aging, infections and radiation, all of which deplete Glutathione levels. Improving and maintaining adequate Glutathione levels in the cells and in the liver is critical to maintaining optimal health.

Every minute of the day, the human body is combating the harmful effects of chemicals and toxins that enter our bodies through the air, food, personal care and cleaning products and lifestyle choices. Antioxidants such as GSH help prevent or at least delay this damage enacted on cells that directly relates to how fast we age or how easily we surrender to age-related diseases.

IV glutathione replenished inadequate amounts of GSH in the body and also helps to:

  • Boost the immune system
  • Supports systemic detoxification
  • Promotes elimination of toxins through excretions
  • Reduces the appearance of age spots, acne and contribute to overall skin health
IV Glutathione is being used for a variety of diseases including Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Lyme disease, Migraines, and Chronic Fatigue.

IV Phosphatidylcholine

Considered a phospholipid, phosphatidylcholine (PC) is vital to cell membrane health as well as to the facilitation of moving energy-rich fats into cells for use as fuel in hundreds of different chemical processes occurring in the body and brain. Regular treatments with IV phosphatidylcholine aids in nourishing the brain and its cognitive processes, reverses cell membrane degradation that can contribute to substantial delays with suffering age-related symptoms and diseases. Additionally, PC detoxifies a liver that is experiencing sluggish activity due to accumulations of harmful fats and impurities.

Vitamin and mineral IV therapy is completely safe, affordable and generates few side effects since the stomach and intestines are bypassed during the procedure. By delivering nutrients directly and rapidly to cells, patients can experience the full benefits of important vitamins that the body cannot receive from pills or capsules that require chemical degradation prior to absorption.
