IV Nutrient Therapy
We offer a range of conventional and bespoke infusions to revitalise our clients’ health and help them reverse chronic disease.
What is intravenous nutrient therapy?
Intravenous nutrient therapy was meant to have been started by John Myers who was a Physician from Baltimore, Maryland who pioneered the use of administering vitamins and minerals intravenously as part of the overall treatment of various medical conditions.
How does IV Nutrient Therapy work?
Intravenous nutrient therapy, or IV therapy, works by allowing your body to absorb 100% of the vitamins, as opposed to only 10% with oral supplements and can leave you feeling great for weeks.
The rationale for IV administration of nutrients is that it can achieve serum concentrations that are not obtainable with oral administration. Oral administration of nutrients results in only a small increase in serum concentrations which tends to approach an upper limit as a result of both saturation of gastrointestinal absorption and a sharp increase in urinary excretion of the vitamin, whereas IV administration can double or triple the serum levels, at least for a short period of time.
Peak serum concentrations of nutrients are also generally higher after intravenous administration than after intramuscular administration because the former results in more rapid entry of the nutrients into the bloodstream.
What are the benefits of intravenous nutrient therapy?
Almost anyone can benefit from intravenous nutrient therapy; whether you are dealing with the stress and strains of modern day life, feeling run down and tired, looking to boost sports performance and recovery, as part of a dietary programme to aid weight loss or to aid detoxification protocols, the rewards are endless.
Many relatively healthy patients will also choose to come in for periodic infusions because they noticed it enhanced their overall wellbeing for periods of a week or several months.
Studies have shown nutritional IVs can support a number of health complaints such as:
- Overall wellbeing support
- Sports performance booster
- Immune support
- Fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome)
- Skin conditions
- Heavy metal toxicity
- Lyme disease
- Mould toxicity
- Asthma attacks
- Acute migraines
- Upper respiratory tract infections
- Chronic sinusitis
- Seasonal allergic rhinitis
- Congestive heart failure
- Chronic urticaria
- And much more…
What to expect when having my IV?
A nutrient IV is a low risk procedure that many of our clients find is a relaxing and enjoyable experience here at the London Clinic of Nutrition.
You will be shown to our IV lounge where you can relax on one of our leather recliners with complimentary refreshments and a selection of books and magazines to enjoy whilst one of our experienced practitioners administers a natural mix of nutrients directly to your bloodstream for around 45 minutes.
You’ll receive an immediate energy boost, helping you to cleanse your body of toxins and leaving you feeling hydrated and re-energised.
What are the different types of Intravenous Nutrient Therapy available?
Based on the research done by the renowned John Myers and many more people since then, we offer a wide range of nutritional IVs at the London Clinic of Nutrition to enhance patients’ health, reduce symptoms and help reverse chronic disease. You can opt for a one off boost or a series of replenishing treatments, taking advantage of our discounted packages.
Among the many infusions we offer is the classic Myers cocktail, which has been used to treat patients for over 30 years. Similar to the original Myers but with increased nutrient levels we have our bespoke immune boosting and sports performance formulas which are very popular. Our Vitamin C and glutathione IVs are extremely effective at improving detoxification (particularly when there is heavy metal toxicity), oxidative stress and reducing pathogen loads within the body. We can also blend bespoke IV’s for patients as and when required.
