Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Therapy
The Most Effecient Nutrient Delivery
Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Therapy is a direct way to deliver nutrients into the bloodstream. Individuals with chronic illnesses, such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, autoimmune disease and those with chronic infections (especially Lyme disease), often have functional nutritional deficiencies that compromise cellular function. These deficiencies affect the body’s ability to make energy and fight infections.
Oral supplementation is an inefficient means of delivering nutrients and therapies to the cells. The oral doses needed to improve cellular function cannot be reached due to limitations of absorption and because they are quickly broken down in the liver. When therapies are given intravenously, however, they are not as quickly inactivated by the liver as they are when given orally, making the therapies much more effective. Major improvements are often seen in a short period of time.
The Local’s Laboratory uses several IV protocols, most notably intravenous vitamin C (IVC) and the “Mini Myers.” The “Mini Myers” formulation is the foundation of our IV Nutrition protocol and contains a special blend of vitamin C, vitamin B12, vitamin B complex, magnesium, calcium, and glutathione.
