IV Vitamin Therapy

What is Intravenous Vitamin Therapy?

No matter how well you think you eat, your body only benefits from about 8% of all the nutrients you consume. With intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy therapy, as soon as your infusion starts, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients are quickly circulated through your bloodstream and delivered to cells, where they are immediately available for use. It’s like “direct deposit”; in IV vitamin therapy, there’s no waiting for the nutrients to clear the digestive system and the liver. Dr Lobe understands how to diagnose critical deficiencies and design an individualized program to restore your nutritional balance and improve your health better than anyone in the region.


The Advantages of Vitamin Drip Therapy

The main advantage of IV vitamin therapy is that the nutrients completely bypass the digestive system. Typically, vitamins and minerals are given orally and must be naturally processed by the stomach, liver, and intestines. The sad fact is that about 8-10% of what you consume orally gets to the tissues that need it most. In order for nutrients to reach the cell and work effectively, they must be absorbed. Because of poor intestinal function, most people suffer from vitamin deficiencies. With IV Vitamin Treatment your nutritional balance and health will improve significantly.


Leaky Gut Syndrome

The sad fact is that little more than 8-10% of what you consume orally gets to the tissues that need it most. In order for nutrients to reach the cell and work effectively, they must be absorbed.  That requires a healthy gut.  The problem is that over the years, well intended people including our doctors and parents didn’t have a clue what damage some routine practices had on our bodies.  Three practices in particular are among the major causes of a type of gut dysfunction that we call “Leaky Gut” Syndrome. When we were children with our sore throats, earaches and tonsillitis, our doctors put us on an antibiotic. That immediately changed the population of bacteria in our gut by throwing off our natural protective balance and set the state for years of future gut dysfunction.  The second culprit is cows milk. It turns out that casein, the protein in cow’s milk, promotes immune dysfunction leading to autoimmune phenomena that are prominent in today’s population. Among the more common of these are adrenal dysfunction resulting in chronic fatigue, thyroiditis, leading to clinical hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia and many others. And, finally, gluten. There isn’t a baby boomer out there who never heard of Wonder Bread or something similar. It should more aptly be called “No Wonder (you ended up sick as an adult) Bread”.  Gliadin, the major protein from wheat is a major allergen and sets up the gut for failure of proper absorption of essential nutrients that are needed to restore the body. When we think of gluten, we think of wheat. The facts however are that there exist close to 24 important antigens (foreign proteins that our immune systems can react negatively to) in the gluten family. Further more, the gluten free section of most stores rarely is truly gluten free. All these factors combined as well as the occasional disease process that results in inflammation of the gut, (entities such as diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease and the like), impair the ability of the gut to properly absorb nutrients. In order for nutrients to get into the cells and do their job metabolism often takes place, so when the metabolic processes blocked, something that occurs naturally through your genetic programming, nutrient utilization decreases, thus further impairing how nutrients get into the cell.


Replenish, Rejuvenate, Revive

The good news is that we can do something immediate and effective to measure and improve your nutritional status, function and looks. We begin by doing some basic testing of your metabolism and your intracellular or tissue nutrient composition. In most cases we also recommend testing your genes for patterns that block nutrient utilization. From there we take a careful history of the problem and examine you for signs of nutrient deficiency, then we design a customized IV nutrition program just for you. Why go through all the trouble? The facts are that while only a small fraction of what you consume orally is absorbed and utilized, 100% of the IV nutrients go directly into the cells where they can immediately go to work to make you feel better.

Some of the many common problems that IV Vitamin therapy can address include:
