After a hospital discharge, you or your child might need continued intravenous medication at home. Home Intravenous Therapy is a way for you or your child to receive medication without having to return to the hospital or clinic. Intravenous Therapy is a process that involves inserting liquid intravenously, or directly into your veins, to ensure almost immediate delivery of medications, nutrients, and other drugs. The administration of this type of medication is usually done through a needle or catheter.
Intravenous Therapy bypasses poor absorption by the intestine; this means that vitamins and mineral deficiencies can be brought back into balance especially quickly. Depending on the prescription, Intravenous therapies are effective in building up the intestine, detoxification, fat burning, boosting energy or the prevention of burn-out.
Intravenous therapies also provide relief and healing for people with a wide array of health concerns and objectives including but not limited to:
■ Compromised immune system.
■ Auto immune disorders.
■ Athletic performance.
■ Cancer / detox from radiation or chemotherapy treatments.
■ General detoxification.
■ Neurological conditions.
■ Fibromyalgia symptoms and many more.
