At Integrative Medicine, Laser and Aesthetics, our team spends considerable time exploring holistic and integrative approaches to overall wellness. Are you feeling sluggish with no explanation? It could be that your cells aren’t getting the nutrients they need for optimal function. To give your cells the boost they need, we offer IV infusions at our West Carmel office. If you’re feeling run down, here’s a look at how our IV infusion therapies can help.
A National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey finds that almost a third of the people in the United States are at risk for at least one vitamin deficiency. Plus, almost a quarter are at risk of two vitamin deficiencies. These deficiencies largely involve vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and folate, as well as the mineral iron.
As part of our IV infusion services, we offer nutrient infusions that are tailored to your needs and we deliver them straight into your bloodstream. If you’re relying on oral vitamins and minerals, your gastrointestinal tract interferes greatly with absorption rates. This means that you only get a fraction of what the label says the supplement contains. With infusions, you will benefit from the full dosage as the nutrients make their way straight to your cells without going through the digestive tract.
We offer several micronutrient infusions, including the Myers’ cocktail, ReVITaLIVE, and ViDrate (which also hydrates your body), and we can combine and tweak these to best address your unique needs.
If you remember your old science classes in school, you may recall that mitochondria are found in most of your cells. They convert sugars, proteins, and fats into the energy your cells need. As you age, however, your mitochondria begin to weaken. Therefore, your cells don’t have the resources they once did. This can leave you feeling less than energetic as the years go by.
To restore mitochondrial health, we offer a NAD+ infusion. It contains nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, which is responsible for metabolizing energy. It’s believed that when your levels of NAD decline with age, it leads to the deterioration in your mitochondria. With our NAD+ IV infusion, we bring levels back up, which gives you some fresh, new energy reserves.
As important as it is to feed your cells properly, it’s also critical that we give them the tools they need to repair themselves. To do this, we rely on IV infusions that contain glutamine, arginine, and carnitine, as well as the powerful antioxidant called glutathione.
Your glutathione levels can not only be affected by age, but by stress and poor diet, as well. Gluthathione helps you can fight off cell damage as well as speed up repairs in important tissues, like your muscles — giving you renewed energy.
If you’re feeling increasingly less energetic, we’re sure to have an IV infusion that will benefit you. Simply contact us at 800-538-5513 or schedule online to set up an appointment.
