Parenteral therapy is the superior method of administering vitamins, minerals and botanical medicines for the purpose of stimulating the body's healing systems through proper nutrition at the cellular level. This therapy bypasses gastrointestinal absorption, and, as a result, the body is able to achieve higher high blood concentration of nutrients beyond what is orally possible.
Intravenous vitamin and mineral infusion therapy is an excellent way to provide the body with therapeutic levels of nutrients. When we ingest oral supplements in the form of tinctures, pills or capsules, a large portion is lost in the digestive system and liver pathways. Intravenous nutrients that are injected directly into the bloodstream bypass the liver and digestive organs and are available directly through the circulation system to the tissues and cells of the body. In chronic disease and states of depletion, or where digestive function is compromised, larger amounts of nutrients can be comfortably and safely delivered into the body.
The standard cocktail consists of magnesium, calcium, vitamin B-5, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), vitamin B-12, vitamin B complex, and vitamin C. Vitamin C is an important antioxidant that stimulates the immune system and aids in fighting bacterial and viral infections. Other vitamins or ingredients may be added to the protocol, depending on the patient's diagnosis and overall health.
