IV Infusion Therapy: The New Health Craze

October 16, 2017

Although IV Infusion Therapy (IV Vitamin Therapy) is not necessarily “new” —57 years ago, Johns Hopkins physician Dr. John Myers formulated an injectable “cocktail” of key vitamins to help address a number of conditions— it has rapidly become a recognized health trend around the world.

Celebrities including Rihanna, Chrissy Teigen, Chris Brown, and even Simon Cowell have contributed to the popularity of this treatment with the power of social media, as they have been publicly spotted undergoing IV therapy. However, actors, athletes, models and other Hollywood stars have also joined them in this movement.

With the high demand for this treatment and its therapeutic effectiveness, people have become more inclined to try IV infusion therapy. Whether it is for energy, dehydration, fibromyalgia, or even a boost in athletic performance, IV therapy helps each individual reach optimal levels of health.

Nava’s Intravenous (IV) Micronutrient Therapy is used to deliver vitamins and minerals directly into the blood stream for optimal absorption, as an alternative to traditional oral supplements. The intravenous use of vitamins, minerals and amino acids is a powerful and effective way to deliver these vital nutrients to the body. The intravenous delivery method bypasses the intestines and thus allows higher dosages and concentrations of certain key ingredients to be absorbed by the body itself at a cellular level. Depending on the ingredients used in the IV bag and the speed of the drip, a treatment can last for approximately 30-60 minutes.

The high dosages of vitamin C are one of the cornerstones of the intravenous options at NAVA. Due to the gastrointestinal side effects of oral vitamin C, the powerful immune boosting potential of this vitamin is rarely seen until it is given intravenously.

The other star player in the arsenal of intravenous ingredients is glutathioneGlutathione has many different roles in the human body, but it is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory substance. There are few natural substances, minerals or vitamins that can be delivered intravenously and boast a true powerful anti-inflammatory effect as glutathione.

Nava’s Medical Advisor, Dr. Mark Sivieri, assures the different IV preparations and formulas that NAVA offers can address multiple issues that the average American struggles with, and can provide an individual with the foundation of health needed for overall and optimal wellness. “The reason for this is because the IV nutrients chosen to be used at NAVA provide and replace the core deficiencies that Americans can have and do not even know it” Dr. Sivieri added. Some of the most common conditions or complaints IV treatment can help with and improve are fatigue, immune function, performance enhancement and recovery, weight loss, migraines, anxiety, and even symptoms associated with allergies.
