Nutritional Intravenous Therapy:

One of the best treatments most doctors will not tell you about!

By: Dr. Michael Morsillo, B.Sc., N.D.

What is the quickest and most effective way to get more nutrients into all of your body’s cells?  If you answered intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy, you are absolutely correct!  IV therapy allows for rapid and immediate nutrient absorption because the nutrients are introduced directly into your bloodstream. These nutrients can then travel through the blood and easily gain entry to cells where they are needed.  This makes nutritional IV therapy one of the most powerful tools that Naturopathic Medicine has to offer. 

A large number of people have digestive troubles, which results in poor nutrient absorption and eventually nutrient deficiencies.  Cells need proper amounts of nutrients to function optimally, so deficiencies can become one of the main underlying causes driving many chronic diseases.  Unfortunately, many nutrient deficiencies are not easy to find and will rarely be included as part of your annual check-up or routine blood testing.

By delivering nutrients directly into the bloodstream, we can attain much higher cellular levels than we would with if we took the very same nutrients by mouth.  For example, a person who has vitamin C administered by IV will have much higher levels of vitamin C in the blood compared to someone who took vitamin C orally, even if the oral dose was much higher.  This is possible because IV nutrient delivery bypasses the intestinal tract so that one’s ability to digest and absorb these nutrients is no longer a limiting factor.  Another great advantage of this therapy is that it is not a cookie-cutter treatment approach because all of the nutrients and their dosages can be uniquely customized to specifically meet your individual needs and concerns!

IV nutrient therapy has been very effective for a wide variety of conditions, including the following:

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Urticaria (Hives)
  • Heart Disease
  • Depression
  • Migraines
  • Allergies
  • Crohn’s & Colitis
  • Chronic Infections
  • Cold & Flu
  • Cancer

With that said, you don’t need to have one of the conditions mentioned to see benefits of using this therapy.  IV nutrient therapy can also be very useful for slowing down the aging process, preserving health and vitality, improving sports or work performance, combating stress, improving energy levels, and strengthening immune function.

Overall IV therapy is a very safe and effective treatment, typically taking about 30 minutes.  As a Naturopathic Doctor with specialized training and certification in IV therapy, we are able to offer these treatments at our Newmarket Naturopathic Clinic.
