What is Intravenous Nutritional Therapy?
Intravenous Nutritional Therapy ( I.V) is a method of delivering vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into the patient’s bloodstream. IV. Nutrients bypasses the digestive tract where many nutrients may be partially or fully lost due to poor absorption. I.V. nutrition also creates higher than normal blood levels of specific nutrients, which have been shown in scientific literature to be effective in the treatment of certain conditions. By directly administering nutrients to the body, the increased nutrient levels can provide an immediate therapeutic response by correcting deficiencies that may arise from a disease state.
We customize a nutrient I.V. therapy program specific to each individual patient’s needs
Why should you consider IV Nutritional Therapy?
IV nutritional therapy is a highly useful therapy as many illnesses and conditions are associated with digestive disturbances, improper digestion, malabsorption, food sensitivities, intestinal inflammation, and decreased production of digestive enzymes or hydrochloric acid. Individuals with these types of condition do not absorb many crucial nutrients necessary for optimal health. As well, stress can cause the body to use certain nutrients at a faster rate or to require higher amounts for proper healing.

Nutritional Therapy on Adrenal Fatigue
The Adrenal glands are two small glands located on the top of the kidneys and are an integral part of the endocrine system ( hormonal communication.). They are responsible for producing several important hormones and are critical to our bodies stress response. When the adrenal glands are not functioning optimal, there can be a number of conditions that occur know Adrenal fatigue often develops after periods of intense or lengthy physical or emotional stress, which can lead to altered hormone levels, causing imbalance in the endocrine function leading to substantial physical fatigue. Adrenal fatigue may also be caused by poor nutrition, exposure to chemical toxins, poor sleep, anxiety, depression, infections, pregnancy, prescription drugs and over training/endurance training.
Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue
- Excessive fatigue and exhaustion
- Feeing overwhelmed and frustrated
- Premenstrual tension

- Poor digestion

- Insomnia or interrupted sleep

When multiple factors contribute to Adrenal fatigue oral supplementation and stress reduction often is not enough to support recovery. At Limitless Health Clinic we provide IV Nutritional Therapy providing high doses of nutrients to support the demands of the adrenal glands.
