Gut health is linked to a wide variety of conditions, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), food intolerance and bloating. The lining of the gut can only withstand a certain amount of damage and the immune system may react badly to what it perceives to be foreign invaders e.g., food particles.
It’s important to take the right steps towards ensuring a healthy gut and one method to explore is Intravenous Nutrient Therapy.
What is Intravenous Nutrient Therapy?
Also known as IV therapy, this procedure involves introducing nutrients directly into the bloodstream via a cannula. This is usually inserted in a place like the arm, with helpful substances being distributed into a vein and spreading through the blood.
How do you know if you’re qualified for IV therapy?
Before considering IV therapy, it may be worth looking into a gut health consultation to see if it’s the right treatment for you. A gut health consultation is a bespoke solution for determining the kind of nutrients that are going into your body and examining if any changes need to be made.
Nutrient specialists will carry out a detailed analysis of your food intake and lifestyle habits, while also testing for conditions such as food allergies and intolerances. They may suggest IV therapy as a way to improve gut health or develop new habits for promoting a stronger immune system.
How does IV therapy help to improve gut health?
Deliver nutrients faster
An important benefit of IV therapy is that it delivers key nutrients to the gut much faster than oral medicine. This is because the treatment bypasses the digestive system and benefits the whole body in a relatively short amount of time.
High-quality gut health supplements
The vitamins that are used in IV therapy are safe, high-quality supplements that are designed to promote better digestion and protect the gut from harm. Two examples of these vitamins are biotin and selenium.
Produced by the healthy bacteria in your gut, biotin is responsible for breaking down fats and carbohydrates in food and turning them into energy. Selenium is a vitamin that protects the gut against inflammation, reducing the likelihood of conditions like leaky gut or bowel cancer.
Be selective with your supplements
As a bespoke treatment, IV therapy can be built around your specific health needs and vitamin intake. That’s where a gut health consultation really comes in handy before undertaking the procedure because you’ll have a better understanding of what your body needs.
Once this has been established, you can be selective with the gut health supplements that are transferred into the body and achieve the results that you want.
