Have Digestive Troubles?

Why would I stick a needle in my arm if I have bowel issues?

First and foremost, if your gut is compromised in any way, IV nutrient therapy is a way to ensure all your nutrient requirements are being met. If you have IBD or IBS you likely are not absorbing all your nutrients, which you require to heal your body. IV therapy is a way to get a leg up and a boost to ensure your body can start it’s healing process.
Secondly, we can achieve higher doses and have a better pharmacological effect with direct injection into the vein.
There are many great protocols to help you feel better while going through your healing process. We can simply hydrate, we can add vitamins and minerals, and amino acids. Each person is unique and therefore we tailor your Nutrient therapy to you.
Keep in mind that these therapies are also along side diet, lifestyle and other nutrient therapies as well.
