Dr. Schaafsma Specializes in Not Only BioIdentical Hormone Replacement, Functional Medicine, Anti-Aging, Integrative & Regenerative Medicine But Also In Intravenous Nutrition Therapy:
Intravenous nutrition means that the vitamins or nutraceuticals are administered directly in the vein through an I.V.
I.V. Nutrition is used usually in conjunction with oral therapy. The advantage of I.V. is that we can achieve much higher concentration of nutrients in serum compared to oral route. These high levels are the key which allow certain nutrients, like Vitamin C to become bactericidal (kill bacteria), antiviral, or kill cancer cells, Depending on dosage, and all this with no significant side effects!
In the case of aging or ailing cells (chronic illness, malabsorption, cancer…), intravenous nutrients may achieve a serum concentration which provides a gradient to allow the nutrients to flow or be transported into the cell.
Some of the Indications for Nutritional IV’s are:
- Allergic rhinitis
- · Asthma
- · Bacterial illnesses
- · Cancer (See N.I.H. studies) (National Institute of Health)
- · Cardiovascular disease
- · Chemical toxicity
- · Mercury, lead, cadmium,
- · arsenic, nickel
- · Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- · COPD
- · Hypoadrenalism (adrenal fatigue/stress)
- · Immune disorders
- · Bacterial Infections
- · Macular degeneration
- · Migraine
- · Multiple sclerosis
- · Muscle Spasms
- · Neurologic Disorders
- · Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s
- · Disease
- · Viral illnesses
- · It is an excellent tool to prepare for surgery. It decreases the rate of infections, complications, scar formation and hospitalization.
In some cases we can ameliorate the symptoms to more bearable levels and in other cases we can totally correct the presenting condition.
People that are sensitive to certain nutrients orally tolerate the same nutrient I.V. well.
