Prepare Your Body
Acute stress and injury places a high demand on healing. Nutrition is critical for healing tissue. IV Nutritional Infusions can help you prepare your body for the stress of surgery as well as chemotherapy. Because surgery places stress on the body, even young healthy people, can benefit from the anti-inflammatory and immune boosting effects of vitamin C.
“Extensive literature demonstrates that cancer patients experience vitamin C deficiency correlated with reduced oral intake, inflammation, infection, disease processes, and treatments such as radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery.” IV Nutritional Infusions can help speed recovery by providing Pre and Post Immune Support and hydration. By giving B-Vitamin energy, C-Vitamin Immune Support and essential nutrients, the body gets some much needed help as it works to heal.
- Low-dose IV C can be given before a chemotherapy treatment, no less than an hour before the treatment.
- With the Oncologist’s approval, IV Nutritional Infusions can be given after chemotherapy – specifically, 12–72 hours after.
- An indwelling venous access system or port can be used.
- No IV C Infusion within 12–24 hours before positron-emission tomography (PET Scan)
- During chemotherapy and for 1–4 months after, IV Nutritional Infusion can be given 1–3 times weekly.
If a surgical patient develops an infection, cells and tissue are replaced at a high rate and vitamin C levels diminish quickly. Borderline vitamin C stores before surgery, can result in fragile capillaries, poor wound healing, and bleeding. If infections develop after surgery, IV Nutritional Infusions can help the body heal. Inflammation caused by surgical stress is calmed by Vitamin C and Magnesium. Vitamin C also promotes wound healing by stimulating collagen and helping the skin to restructure. In general, Vitamin C intake should be at least 500 mg/d after surgery in order to avoid the chronic pain syndrome, RSD/CRPS. In fact, with bone fractures, taking vitamin C (500 mg/d for 50 days) is officially recommended by evidence-based guidelines. Glutathione takes care of the oxidative stress on the body after surgery.
