Intravenous Nutritional Therapy (IV Therapy)

Intravenous Nutritional Therapy (IVT) has been medically used for decades, primarily within the hospital setting or specialized infusion center. The original main indication was for patients who could not consume all of their required nutrients orally.

Through its Certified IV Therapy Center, CCFM has expanded the role of IV Therapy to provide patients with a customized formulation of essential micronutrients to more rapidly alleviate unwanted symptoms and optimize bodily function. Our certified IV nurse administers and closely supervises patients while they receive nutrients in our comfortable therapy room.

Benefits of IV Therapy are Numerous:

  • IV therapy nutrients are 100% absorbed into the blood and immediately available for the body to use (oral nutritional supplements offer an absorption rate of approximately 50%).
  • IV nutrients can achieve serum concentrations not obtainable with oral administration.

IV nutrients are a viable alternative for those patients who are unable to absorb essential nutrients due to gastrointestinal dysfunction, liver and gall bladder issues, drug interactions and intolerance to swallowing certain oral supplements.

IV therapy contributes to an accelerated healing time and improved bodily function.
