Nutritional IV

Restorative Health Washington DC Nutritional IV

Nutritional IV is a great way to get a lift in your step, have an even better workout and recovery, avoid a cold, improve your mood, and even slow aging. It’s a very efficient way of filling in the gap of what your diet may not be providing and compensating for personal health issues. Ideally a healthy diet should give us everything we need to be well but we live in a world where there are several things sapping our nutrients: commercial farming practices, polluted environment, stress, lack of adequate sleep and downtime plus personal health issues.

What is it?

It’s a combination of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can be put together in several different ways which is then injected into a vein. Common uses are: fatigue, colds or flus, poor immune function. It is especially useful for people suffering from nutrient deficiencies due to digestion issues such as Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.

How does it work?

It can be a 20 minute push or a longer infusion depending on the purpose. Intravenous vitamins and minerals are introduced into the body by a vein and avoid the “first pass” of the liver. When you swallow a pill, it goes through the digestive system and the liver which acts like a filter to remove some of what that pill contained. This is a normal process and whatever is left gets into the system and delivered to our cells to allow our bodies to function. Nutritional IV avoids the “first pass” and you get 100% of that solution. Just imagine how you would feel if you got the full effect of the multivitamin you’re taking.

What to expect

You will relax in a private room and be supervised by a physician. You can listen to music, read, or even sleep. Think of this as a way to nourish your mind and body, taking time for yourself to recharge and be healthy.
