IV nutrition, also known as IV therapy, is one of the fastest growing forms of alternative medicine and is provided by the team at New Jersey Disc Center. Unlike most medical treatments, IV nutrition not only gets to the root of the pain or problem but addresses the cause and puts patients on the path to wellness.
What is IV Nutrition?
IV nutrition is a quick, painless way to improve a patient’s overall health. It replenishes critical nutrients that the body needs in order to stay healthy and hydrated. When someone takes oral vitamins, minerals or supplements orally, the body only absorbs around 40-50% of the key elements because the digestive tract breaks down some nutrients along the way. With IV nutrition, nutrients are received right into the bloodstream and bypass the digestive tract altogether.
How IV Nutrition Works at New Jersey Disc Center
Each IV nutrition session is customized to meet the goals of the patient, and the response to IV nutrition varies from patient to patient. Once the area has been desensitized with topical numbing cream, a member the team will insert a small IV into the patient’s arm. The IV will administer a variety of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other liquids specifically designed for each individual. The patient will be placed in a relaxed setting while the IV nutrition takes approximately 30-45 minutes to administer throughout the bloodstream.
