What is IV Nutrient Therapy (and why you need it )?

Whether you’re a movie star embracing a trend or a patient at Aurora Natural Medicine, there’s a good chance you’d benefit from IV nutrient therapy. This saline drip infused with vitamins and minerals like B12, B6, Vitamin C, and Magnesium will rehydrate you and give you the boost you need to counter the effects of lack of sleep, stress, and exhaustion.

Quick History of IV Nutrient Therapy

We know now that our food is not nearly as nutrient dense as it once was. Coupled with stress of modern living, it’s a recipe for exhaustion, insomnia, and stress.

In the 1960’s, Dr. John Myers suggested that people were not absorbing the vitamins and minerals needed for proper functioning of the systems of the body. 100% absorption was only possible through the delivery if nutrients through an IV. The original Nutrient IV was saline, Magnesium, calcium, Vitamin C, and various B vitamins, including B12. Dr. Myers’ infusion is still the most popular one used today and the one our patients at Aurora Natural Medicine receive most often. We use pharmaceutical grade nutrients to jumpstart your body and getting you back to optimal health.

TIP: Drinking water before you go for your drip will make it easier for us to find your vein.

IV nutrient therapy helps cells produce energy to combat the effects of fatigue caused by stress, lack of sleep, and not getting enough essential vitamins and minerals.

Why an IV and not a pill?

Nutrients can be absorbed faster when they enter the body directly into the bloodstream. When we ingest nutrients, like we do with our food or pills, they have to go through the digestive tract before being absorbed. That means we don’t feel the effects as fast. You can also get nutrients through a shot but the benefit of the IV is that it also rehydrates your body which is important especially here in the Arizona desert.

TIP: The average IV nutrient therapy takes 30 minutes.

Who can get a Nutrient IV?

While they originally started as a Hollywood trend, just about anyone can get IV nutrient therapy. If you’re not sure or want to schedule a Nutrient IV call Aurora Natural Medicine at 480-719-5119.
