Intravenous Infusion Therapy (I-VITS) than taking oral vitamins
At Strong Hope the Medical team has been trained by experts in the field of intravenous vitamins in Europe and use IV vitamin therapy as a tool to replenish the client’s micronutrient and nutritional status.
We know that people who have been misusing drugs and alcohol generally have not been paying attention to their health, nutrition and overall wellbeing. The misuse of alcohol and other substances together with poor nutrition puts the body through significant stress and results in depletion of vitamin and mineral stores in the body. This is turn leads to further medical problems in relation to physical and mental health in many cases.
Studies have found that IV vitamins can be a great way to assist in detoxification from addictive substances and lessen the withdrawal syndromes, improve many health conditions and achieve optimal health and wellness. IV vitamin therapy is an effective and efficient treatment at replenishing vitamins and minerals because it bypasses the digestive system, allowing for 100 per cent absorption.
Food or medications such as multivitamins must be chewed or swallowed whole. They pass down the oesophagus to the stomach where the acidic environment begins the breakdown. The small intestine then starts the process of digestion and absorption. Enzymes break the foodstuff down into their smaller molecular pieces and eventually to amino acids (the building blocks of proteins).
The small intestine absorbs these amino acids, and passes them into the blood where they are carried to the liver. The liver acts as our primary detoxification organ. It receives everything that we put into our body and processes it to be transported in the blood or excreted as urine or stool.
Assimilating the vitamins and minerals from our food is a long and complex process. There are many steps that can be interrupted and this is where vitamin IV therapy comes in. 100 per cent absorption is ensured through IV vitamin therapy because the vitamins and minerals can be administered directly to the blood. Therefore, diverse types of patients can benefit from vitamin therapy and much more efficiently than by taking food or medication orally.
Some benefits of i-vits include:
At Strong Hope we use the highest quality of intravenous vitamins formulated in Europe.
The substances used in intravenous vitamin and nutrient therapy are vitamins, minerals and amino acids and are all classified as “essential nutrients” as they are essential for life. Essential nutrients however are nutrients that the body cannot synthesize on its own and therefore, traditionally, they were obtained from food we eat. In modern times, however, our over-cropped soil, genetically modified and over processed foods mean that many people are severely deficient in most essential nutrients. By replenishing your levels of these nutrients, under the expert care of Dr. Evelyn, your body can be begin its journey to its peak physical health and maximum energy performance.
Depending on the form of addiction and physical health, combined with the results of blood investigations, Dr. Kristi-Anne Evelyn will create a bespoke i-vits programme for each client.
