Nutrient IV Therapy and Vitamin Shots
Dr. Jessica Moore can prescribe “parenteral therapies” (nutritional intravenous therapy (I.V.) or intramuscular injections (I.M.). Optimal hydration and micronutrient status can support healthy cellular metabolism, detoxification, and immune health, as well as decrease tissue inflammation and oxidative stress.
When nutrients are directly absorbed into the circulatory system, they bypass the gastrointestinal tract and liver, allowing for far superior absorption compared to oral intake.
This type of revitalizing therapy can be helpful for a wide range of clinical conditions and may also improve mood, stress, sleep, and muscle health. Patients with compromised intestinal health and impaired metabolism may benefit especially (celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, etc.). Restoring important nutrients can aid in rebalancing the body for those with nutritional deficiencies, chronic illness, chronic fatigue, and after cancer treatments. In some cases, periodic treatments may enhance a patient’s overall well-being for periods of a week to even several months or longer. (Altern Med Rev. 2002 Oct;7(5):389-403).
If you are in good health and working on longevity or anti-aging as part of your wellness plan, you may want to discuss these therapies with Dr. Moore as part of your comprehensive strategy to reduce oxidative stress and support micronutrient status. Oxidative stress is a hallmark of pre-cancerous states as well as age-related and degenerative disease conditions.
The type of therapy and formula will vary depending on the patient, their condition, and the goals of the treatment. Vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, amino acids, and anti-oxidants can be safely administered parenterally and can support therapeutic response as part of a comprehensive integrative treatment plan. Only sterile pharmaceutical grade injectable nutrients are administered.
