IV Nutrition Therapy – About

ABOUT

Your search for IV infusion therapy in Overland Park KS is over! As your trusted source for comprehensive, cutting edge, science based healthcare, LifeWorks Integrative Health offers intravenous nutrition therapy. This method of wellness support and disease management has a long standing reputation for being effective for a variety of health conditions. Not only is this the ideal boost for athletic performance and recovery or to enhance overall vitality, but also a powerful support for chronic diseases such as Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Lupus, and Lyme disease.

You can experience resilience and IV therapy can help. Through delivering vitamins, minerals and amino acids intravenously, the body can achieve serum concentrations of key nutrients not possible  with oral dosing alone. By giving vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly in the bloodstream, nutrients can bypass the digestive tract and go right to work. This is uniquely beneficial in conditions where gastrointestinal absorption is poor and nutrient levels are deficient. Many patients come to us for help with chronic digestive issues that have left them profoundly nutrient deficient. While our functional medicine team works to heal and restore optimal function to the digestive tract, we can provide the key nutrients at optimal levels through IV nutrition therapy to support and speed up the healing process.

Since oral administration of vitamins and minerals by design, pass through the digestive tract there are limits to what the digestive tract can absorb at any given time, and also what is comfortable for the digestive tract. For example, high oral doses of vitamin C can cause stomach upset and loose stools while  the serum level of vitamin C doesn’t actually get high enough to treat some conditions. In other words, the high oral doses can have uncomfortable side effects and not actually get the levels of serum Vitamin C needed. This isn’t to say that oral Vitamin C isn’t useful or effective- it is, but that there are situations when a higher, therapeutic dose would be beneficial and this must be obtained intravenously.

YOUR BODY IS MADE TO HEAL

IV Nutrition Therapy promotes maximum absorption by the body to correct, repair and regenerate depleted levels of key nutrients. The human body is capable of restoring health and balance in amazing ways, but over time the body becomes drained of vital nutrients and energy. This is due to stress, injury, chronic infections, heavy metal and  chemical toxicities, and more. These daily, chronic exposures bring down our vitality and increase your vulnerability to chronic pain, chronic disease and autoimmune diseases. A custom formulation of IV nutrients to address your specific needs can replete the nutrients you need, and give you the vitality your body was made to have! Continuing with well designed oral supplementation helps maintain the benefits of IV Nutrition Therapy and consistently gives your body the right fuel. Your body is made to heal but  the level of stress, poor soil quality, depleted food sources, body products and increased levels of heavy metals can prevent even the most health conscious person from maintaining the resilience they desire.

Standard levels of vitamins and minerals are based on RDAs- Recommended Daily Allowance. Although this can be a benchmarking tool, it is important to know that these levels were designed to prevent disease. They were not designed to promote optimal health. RDAs were designed to prevent vitamin deficiency related to diseases such as scurvy and rickets; not to give you the vitality you deserve. The use of RDAs for vitamin and mineral supplement dosing is misguided since 100% of the RDA is not what promotes health, but simply what prevents you from being sick. Your body is made to heal, and it needs enough raw material (vitamins, minerals, amino acids) to do this.

Poor soil quality, poor food quality, poor sleep habits, high intake of sugar, chronic stress, endurance sports, and high levels of chemical exposures from cleaning, body, and environment all deplete your body’s levels of raw material available to keep you thriving. In other words, your body is using up the raw materials needed to keep you truly healthy faster than the body can replete it. This is why functional medicine practitioners use what are considered “therapeutic dosing” for many supplements including vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Simply preventing disease is not good enough. You need a practitioner who knows how to replete and optimize your nutrient levels. This is why IV Nutrition Therapy is such an asset to your health. You can quickly, and effectively get therapeutic levels of the nutrients you need. Don’t settle for anything less than optimal health.

CAN IV NUTRITION THERAPY HELP YOU?

IV Nutrition Therapy is something that we’ve been wanting to implement within LifeWorks Integrative Health for the last 10+ years. It is more of a necessity than ever before.

The patients coming to us are experiencing such high levels of GI tract inflammation and systemic toxic overload, that general oral supplement regimens are not going to work. We say that because the GI tract is extremely inflamed to the point that the oral administration of nutrients that have worked well in the past are not having the quick results that we historically have seen.

This tells us that what people are coming in with needs a different approach. The level of severity of GI inflammation and toxic load that people are walking in with is now requiring an up-leveled approach to heal and restore vitality. This is why we now use IV Nutrition Therapy alongside many of our time tested foundational approaches to restoring health.

 

THERE ARE A LOT OF CONDITIONS IVS CAN TREAT AND SUPPORT SUCH AS…

 

IV NUTRITION TO SUPPORT CANCER TREATMENT

We have therapies designed to support patients through traditional cancer treatments that minimize side effects of chemotherapy, improve energy during treatment, and speed recovery after treatment has ended. We also have therapies available for those who choose a less conventional treatment route which can help the immune system kick into gear and fight the growth of cancer cells.

IV NUTRITION FOR EYE HEALTH

Macular degeneration is another common condition for which we have  developed a protocol. IV Nutrition Therapy can improve your eye health. . What we’ll do with that particular IV is we’ll do a pre and a post eye exam. It’s not unusual to see patients notice benefits even immediately after a infusion.

There are more conditions that IV therapy can support. These are a few just to get you excited about how IV therapy can be used to address the most specific health and wellness concerns. Whether you use IV therapy to treat a specific health condition, or to optimize your health so you can be the very best version of you, we are confident you will love this addition to your wellness regimen.
