As a Naturopathic Practitioner, I am fortunate to utilise a multitude of care methods for my patients, including numerous natural therapies as well as traditional drugs, by knowledge and practise. The particular procedure or “method” used to treat patients, however, is not as relevant as what the therapeutic objective is …. That is, the root source of the condition must be addressed. Of the multiple therapeutic modalities I use, one specific approach I find particularly effective in managing both chronic and acute illnesses, utilising real vitamins , minerals, botanicals, antibiotics, homeopathics, and other nutrients. The procedure to which I relate is called intravenous nutrient therapy, or IVNT. There are periods where different causes hinder the body’s normal capacity to repair itself, such as extraordinary stress, dietary deficiency, some medical problems, etc, when the immune system is unable to function to its optimal stage. The missing link in achieving optimal health benefits from natural medicine is provided by IVNT in certain situations. We first need to discuss why oral supplementation and healthy diet alone may sometimes need a boost to achieve results before continuing to explain why IVNT is so beneficial.Learn more by visiting San Diego IV Therapy
Despite Super-Supplementation Nutrient Loss
Very often, I find patients who have changed their diets, who are taking high-quality and adequate supplements and nutrients, but who are still not experiencing expected improvements. Sometimes, when they show up to my office, they are already on these programmes, but sometimes they are established patients who have not achieved the desired outcome of treatment. Is the response that the Incorrect vitamins and nutrients are being taken? Probably. Is it possible that they are taking supplements of low quality, minimally absorbable? Maybe. Maybe. Is it likely that there is something else behind their symptoms? Potentially. Perhaps, actually, they are getting the right form of medication and therapy plan, the prescription is accurate, however something else is occurring ….
The Absorption Issue
Nutrients ought to be properly consumed and distributed to the cell to have a beneficial effect. There are complications that hinder proper absorption of nutrients extracted from oral ingestion and diets, including with the absolute finest, greatest performing, most pricey supplements. These problems may be solved for certain entities,
To obtain optimal absorption and distribution of nutrients, several variables are needed, including:
Optimal gastrointestinal health: The gastrointestinal track has to break down foods and vitamins as nutrients are ingested orally to activate the main nutrients and move certain nutrients to the blood for distribution to the cells that use them. This needs several precautions and relies on various variables to be preserved, including optimum enzyme output, sufficient development of acid, safe intestinal flora, balanced inflammation and irritation-free gastrointestinal lining, absence of “poor” bacteria, stable parastatic sound (GI tract pumping action), as well as others.
Good liver function: They are first distributed to the liver for filtering and detoxification after the nutrients are transferred to the blood until they have the chance to enter other cells of the body. This is referred to as “first pass metabolism.” Before getting the chance to have its impact in the body, a damaged liver may render some nutrients inert, inefficient, or bound for excretion.
Good cell membranes: cell membranes provide energy that needs pumps to sustain sufficient amounts within the cells of vital nutrients. Nutrients also need to be within the cells at higher amounts relative to outside the cell. There is an inherent predisposition for solutes (aka nutrients, minerals, etc.) in every combination of compounds to flow from high concentration levels to lower concentration, this is called the’ concentration gradient.’ This is similar to an overcrowded train. If one is open, individuals in the overcrowded train may choose to transfer to an empty train, because there is more room to breathe. It would require a little courage, though, to cram extra individuals into an over-packed train, needing some shoving and pushing to create space. Similarly, the cell membrane has to remain stable and provide adequate energy (ATP) to power the pumps to transfer the nutrients from outside the cell (the empty train) to the inside of the cell (crowded train) against the ‘concentration gradient’ to sustain higher amounts of nutrients inside the cell where they can regenerate and recover. This is called ‘successful transport.’
