IV Therapy is one of the most popular treatments for our patients. Helping anything from hangovers to back pain. Don’t be misguided into thinking that all “IV therapies” are the same! GhentMD offers a unique take on the traditional IV Treatment because each bag of fluids is customized for each patient, each time they visit. You can be assured – we have a commitment to excellence when it comes to the level of care we provide.
“IV” stands for intravenous, or “within the vein”. It is literally an infusion of liquids containing vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants, and minerals directly into the bloodstream to be administered immediately by the circulatory system. The amount of these good things administered directly (rather than through the enteric system, i.e. intestines) increases immensely with IV Therapy. Bypassing the digestive system is the main advantage of IV nutrition.
At GhentMD IV Therapy is used to support nutritional status, immune function and for many other reasons. Oral intake of vitamins or food delivers only about 10-25% of the available nutrients to the cells, while IV therapy delivers 100% of the infused therapies nutrients directly to these cells. It is particularly important for people suffering from chronic illness and/or a compromised gastrointestinal system (e.g. lack of enzymes or poor gut lining integrity).
When substances are given orally they must be processed through the stomach and the intestines. Many substances may be rendered inactive in the digestive tract, or may not be well absorbed due to poor intestinal function. By directly administering nutrients to the body higher than normal blood levels can be achieved. These increased levels can provide an immediate therapeutic response by correcting deficiencies that may arise from a disease state. There is no faster way to get your body what it needs. At GhentMD, we create custom ‘blends’ for each patient in order to achieve optimal health.
