It’s no mystery that the American diet is far from perfect. With fast food restaurants on every corner and convenience stores in between, the options for a healthy diet are crowded out, leaving many Americans vitamin deficient. Now add to this the fact that, as we get older, our cells aren’t getting the fuel they need because of a molecular breakdown. Taking aging and a poor diet together, you’ve got the perfect recipe for feeling run down, lacking the energy you once relied on to get you through each day.
At Integrative Medicine, Laser and Aesthetics, our team has spent considerable time exploring holistic and integrative approaches to overall wellness. Rather than treating each symptom as it crops up, our goal is to tackle your health from an approach that considers the entire picture, right down to your cells and the molecules within them.
If you’re feeling sluggish with no explanation, it could be that your cells aren’t getting the nutrients they need for optimal function. To give your cells the boost they need, we offer IV infusions, which are helping our clients in Carmel, Indiana, recapture that spring in their steps.
If you’re feeling run down, here’s a look at how our IV infusion therapies can help.
Sending in nutrients directly
A National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that almost a third of the people in the United States are at risk for at least one vitamin deficiency and almost a quarter are at risk of two vitamin deficiencies. These deficiencies largely involve vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and folate, as well as the mineral iron.
As part of our IV infusion services, we offer nutrient infusions that are tailored to your needs and we deliver them straight into your bloodstream. If you’re relying on oral vitamins and minerals, your gastrointestinal tract interferes greatly with absorption rates. This means that you’re only getting a fraction of what the label says the supplement contains. By delivering the micronutrients directly into your blood, you benefit from the full dosage as the nutrients make their way straight to your cells without going through the digestive tract.
We offer several micronutrient infusions, including the Myers’ cocktail, ReVITaLIVE, and ViDrate (which also hydrates your body), and we can combine and tweak these to best address your unique needs.
Give your mitochondria a boost
If you remember your old science classes in school, you may recall that mitochondria are found in most of your cells, and they convert sugars, proteins, and fats into the energy your cells need.
As you age, however, your mitochondria begin to weaken, which means your cells aren’t getting the resources they once did, which can leave you feeling less than energetic as the years go by.
To restore mitochondrial health, we offer a NAD+ infusion, which contains nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. NAD is responsible for metabolizing energy, and it’s believed that when your levels of NAD decline with age, it leads to the deterioration in your mitochondria. With our NAD+ IV infusion, we bring the levels of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide in your body back up, which gives you some fresh, new energy reserves.
Fighting cellular damage
As important as it is to feed your cells properly, it’s also critical that we give them the tools they need to repair themselves. To do this, we rely on IV infusions that contain glutamine, arginine, and carnitine, as well as the powerful antioxidant called glutathione.
Your glutathione levels can not only be affected by age, but by stress and poor diet, as well. By restoring this important antioxidant in your body, you can fight off cell damage as well as speed up repairs in important tissues, like your muscles — giving you renewed energy.
If you’re feeling increasingly less energetic, we’re sure to have an IV infusion that will benefit you. Simply contact us at 800-538-5513 or use our online scheduling tool to set up an appointment.
