Benefits of Intravenous Nutrient Therapy – London
Intravenous therapy is getting much media interest as celebrities tweet pictures of themselves hooked up to an IV as a way to cope with constant partying or they sing the anti-ageing or restorative benefits of this new wonder treatment. But what exactly is Intravenous Vitamin Therapy and how can it help?
Dr Josh Berkowitz, founder of IV Boost UK, London, first discovered IV therapy in America and he realised the potential benefits he could bring to his patients at his London clinic. Many of his patients were seeking rejuvenating treatments of the face and body and Dr Berkowitz had long thought that a more effective anti-ageing treatment would be to affect a change from the inside out rather than targeting a line here or a wrinkle there.
IV Nutrient Therapy brings about a change to the body at a molecular level, meaning it can restore and rejuvenate in a way that is just not possible with other cosmetic treatments on the market.
Furthermore, the evidence suggested that IV Nutrient Therapy could have an impact on the prevention and treatment of more serious health conditions.
As with all treatments offered by Dr Joshua Berkowitz, the patient’s health and safety is the prime concern and every patient is carefully assessed to ensure that IV Nutrient Therapy is the right procedure for them.
Here are some of the advantages of IV Nutrient Therapy:
1. The good stuff is delivered directly to where it’s needed
The majority of nutrients in the different IV Nutrient Therapy treatments are readily found in natural sources, but modern-day farming practices and food processing means that many of these nutrients are wiped out before they are even consumed. Due to ageing or other health issues, the body’s ability to absorb nutrients may also be affected.
For many years, vitamin and minerals supplements have been available in oral form, but the nutrients are often ‘flushed’ out of the body before they can be absorbed into the bloodstream.
However, with IV Nutrient Therapy, the minerals and vitamins present in the different concoctions are infused directly into the bloodstream where they can be quickly delivered into the cells that need them.
2. It’s safe
Some minerals and vitamins come with serious side effects if taken in too high a dosage orally. This is particularly true of vitamin C or magnesium, which can cause cramps, nausea or diarrhoea, but IV Nutrient Therapy bypasses the digestive system and goes direct to the bloodstream.
Although IV Nutrient Therapy is a celebrity favourite, this is not a fad. Any treatment offered by Dr Joshua Berkowitz has to be based on clinical evidence and proven to be both effective and safe. There is much clinical data showing the effectiveness of IV therapy in the treatment of certain conditions.
3. Higher dosages can be achieved
For treatment of certain conditions, a relatively high dose of specific vitamins and minerals are required to have any positive benefit. This is particularly true of vitamin C as a cancer treatment. To get the high levels needed, IV Nutrient Therapy is the only answer.
4. You can get proactive about your health
This is not just about treating pre-existing medical conditions. IV Nutrient Therapy is a powerful tool for those who take maintaining good health very seriously.
