The environment of the body at the cellular level influences the state and function of our bodies. With the rise of chronic inflammatory diseases, such as gut issues, fibromyalgia, diabetes, obesity, and depression and anxiety, more focused attention is needed on the interconnection of nutrition and cellular health. The sub-mainstream idea of IV nutritional therapy is surfacing and gaining momentum because evidence from human research is showing that a significant subset of the population, including those of wealthy nations, have one or more vitamin deficiencies even though we are in time of apparent food-surplus.
Understanding how micronutrition affects our mind and body health is important for our quality of health in the long-run. In an article by David Kennedy in Nutrients. (Feb 2016), he suggests that the “administration of the entire B-vitamin group, rather than a small sub-set, at doses greatly in excess of the current governmental recommendations, would be a rational approach for preserving brain health.”
The underlying reasons for chronic and short-term vitamin deficiency could be due to many interconnecting reasons including, but not limited to, the access and availability of organic nutrient-rich whole foods to eat, the malabsorption of nutrients into the body caused by chronic inflammatory gut diseases, the depletion of micronutrients because of stress-related increases in their demand, and many more… The intention of IV nutritional and vitamin therapy is to enhance the environment of the body at the cellular level to promote balance in the body and mind. B-Vitamins are another tool to enhance the body’s overall ability to heal and maintain resilience.
