How Does IV Vitamin Therapy Work?

When you are suffering from chronic illness, digestive concerns or stress, the body is not always able to produce the energy required to heal itself. Taking oral supplements are not enough at this point since your stomach and intestines can’t absorb nutrients at a high enough concentration to allow your body to absorb them without significant effort. This is when IV treatments help.

With IV treatments, nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream. This creates a concentration gradient that allows nutrients to be delivered to the cells passively, with little or no effort from the body. Eventually, as your body heals and gains back its strength, your cells regain their ability to actively absorb vitamins and minerals and IV treatments are no longer necessary. IV treatments can be helpful for a variety of conditions.

This includes:

  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Chronic Fatigue/Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Stress/Burnout
  • Decreased Immune Function
  • Crohn’s/Colitis
  • Sleep Disorders

Available Vitamin Drip Injections:

B12: for those who struggle to keep their B12 levels at an optimal level

Super B Shot: for those grinding hard everyday, who may not have time for a longer IV treatment but need a super powered top up of their vitamins from time to time.

Vitamin D: for those who struggle to keep sufficient levels of Vitamin D through supplementation. Vitamin D shots may be the best way to maintain healthy levels and a supported immune system.

IV Vitamin C and Cancer Care

Cancer cells respond very differently to intravenous vitamin C than when compared to the body’s normal cells. For example, a cancer cell makes a rather rapid and sustained increase in hydrogen peroxide in response to vitamin C which results in a “rusting-effect” known as oxidative damage (i.e. this is how many chemo agents work to kill cancer). Normal or healthy cells do not respond this way with vitamin C. This phenomenon makes intravenous vitamin C a very unique and targeted treatment unlike any other chemotherapy-like medicine.

It is important that each intravenous treatment be tailored to the individual patient and particular situation. Protocols are adjusted based on how the patient is feeling, the type of cancer(s), conventional treatments they are receiving, and what is financially feasible over time. Supportive ingredients alongside the vitamin C assist in enhancing the effectiveness of the treatment.
Typically, a person would receive 2-3 treatments per week and the duration depends on how a patient responds. In the beginning, it is advised that a person try a treatment cycle for at least 8 weeks to help assess the potential benefit of treatment. Doses are started low and gradually increased to better customize a person’s individual tolerance.

How Intravenous Vitamin C (IVC) may work in killing cancer (chemotherapeutic action):

  • Increased production of hydrogen peroxide production (pro-oxidant)
  • Anti-angiogenesis (stop the blood supply that feeds cancer)
  • Immune system support (interferon, interleukin, etc.)
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Stromal Support
