How Does IV Vitamin Therapy Work? Is IV Drip Therapy Beneficial?

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

IV Vitamin C and Cancer Care in Etobicoke

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

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is IV Therapy?

IV vitamin therapy, also known as intravenous vitamin therapy or nutrient IV therapy, is a medical treatment that involves administering vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream via an intravenous drip. This allows for rapid absorption and bypasses the digestive system, ensuring maximum nutrient delivery to the cells.

2. What vitamins and nutrients are typically included in IV therapy?

IV vitamin therapy formulations can vary depending on the specific needs and goals of the individual receiving treatment. Common vitamins and nutrients included in IV therapy formulations may include vitamin C, B vitamins (such as B12 and B complex), magnesium, calcium, zinc, amino acids, and antioxidants such as glutathione.

 
3. What are the benefits of IV vitamin therapy?

IV vitamin therapy is believed to offer several potential benefits, including improved hydration, enhanced energy levels, immune system support, detoxification, faster recovery from illness or exercise, relief from hangover symptoms, and enhanced skin health. Some people also report experiencing a sense of well-being and mental clarity after IV therapy sessions.

4. Who can benefit from IV vitamin therapy?

IV vitamin therapy may benefit individuals seeking to improve their overall health and well-being, boost their immune system, optimize athletic performance, support recovery from illness or surgery, alleviate symptoms of certain medical conditions, or address specific nutrient deficiencies. It may also be beneficial for individuals with busy lifestyles, high levels of stress, or compromised digestive function that may impair nutrient absorption.

5. Is IV vitamin therapy safe?

IV vitamin therapy is generally considered safe when administered by a qualified healthcare provider, such as a licensed medical doctor or registered nurse, in a clinical setting. However, as with any medical treatment, there are potential risks and side effects, including infection, bruising or discomfort at the injection site, allergic reactions, and electrolyte imbalances. It’s essential to undergo IV therapy under the supervision of a trained professional who can ensure proper administration and monitor for any adverse reactions.

6. How long does an IV vitamin therapy session take?

The duration of an IV vitamin therapy session can vary depending on the specific formulation being administered and the individual’s needs. In general, IV therapy sessions typically last between 30 minutes to an hour, although some formulations may require longer infusion times. Your healthcare provider will determine the appropriate duration of treatment based on your specific situation.

7. How often should I receive IV vitamin therapy?

The frequency of IV vitamin therapy sessions will depend on factors such as your overall health, specific health goals, and response to treatment. Some people may benefit from regular sessions, such as weekly or monthly, for ongoing support and maintenance, while others may only require occasional sessions for specific purposes, such as recovery from illness or athletic performance enhancement. Your healthcare provider will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs and goals.

8. Can IV vitamin therapy help with specific medical conditions?

IV vitamin therapy may be used as a complementary treatment for certain medical conditions, such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, autoimmune disorders, and gastrointestinal disorders. However, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare provider to determine if IV therapy is appropriate for your specific condition and to ensure that it is used safely and effectively as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.

9. Can anyone undergo IV vitamin therapy?

While IV vitamin therapy is generally safe for most individuals, it may not be suitable for everyone. Individuals with certain medical conditions, such as kidney disease, heart disease, or certain allergies, may need to avoid or modify IV therapy. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also consult with their healthcare provider before undergoing IV therapy. Additionally, it’s essential to disclose any medications, supplements, or medical conditions to your healthcare provider before starting IV therapy to ensure safety and efficacy.

10. How do I find a qualified provider for IV vitamin therapy?

When seeking IV vitamin therapy, it’s essential to choose a qualified healthcare provider who has experience and expertise in administering IV therapy in a clinical setting. This may include licensed medical doctors, registered nurses, or other healthcare professionals trained in IV therapy administration.
