Why give IV Amino Acid and Nutrient Therapy?

(Definition: Amino Acid: are the building blocks of all protein and therefore have a very repairing and healing quality to human tissues)

IV nutrient therapy is a way of getting vitamins, amino acids, minerals and other nutrients into the bloodstream quickly. It takes no work on the part of the digestive system. This is a great benefit for those who have digestive issues or who cannot tolerate oral supplementation. Sometimes the body is so deficient that oral supplementation is not enough, such as times of illness, recovery from illness, post-surgically, during cancer treatment therapies and while detoxifying. Using the IV route of administration of nutrients allows for maximum concentration of nutrients to reach tissues that need it the most. Studies show that IV Amino Acid therapy reduces loss of hormones post-surgically, kidney blood flow has also been shown to be improved and detoxification from drugs and alcohol are commonly treated with IV Amino Acids and show improved recovery rates. We’ve had numerous patients note that anxiety, sleep, energy, healing post-surgically and ability to withstand cancer treatments are greatly improved with this IV. Patients going through radiation and chemotherapy do not lose as much hair or muscle mass and brain function is better maintained. Surgeons note that healing is faster and infections and complication rates are less for those receiving Amino Acid IV therapy.

What are some of the conditions IV Amino Acid Therapy is used for?

Since IV therapy helps restore function in every cell, many health conditions respond. Some examples:

  • Malabsorption syndrome (such as gastritis, ulcers, IBS, Crohn’s and colitis)
  • Auto-immune disease
  • Post-operative healing, usually 2 IV’s, 1-2 weeks before and again after surgery
  • Viral infections
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Parkinson’s
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer patients going through chemo and radiation, usually 1-2 IV’s per week, often alternating with Vitamin C IV’s, which have been shown to enhance chemo/radiation “kill rates”, yet help healthy cells withstand these toxic treatments 

How does it work?

The amino acids and nutrients in the “Felice” IV are absorbed directly by your cells without having to go through the digestive process leading to high cellular concentrations. Due to the high concentration of nutrients and amino acids in the IV solution compared to the cells in your body, the “concentration gradient” allows active transport of the nutrients and amino acids into every cell rapidly and efficiently, thus stimulating your cells to achieve optimal health.
