For men and women living in Fort Lauderdale, Weston, Pembroke Pines and surrounding areas in Florida, who want advanced nutritional services, board-certified physician Dr. Val Manocchio of Doctors Best Wellness Center offers IV/IM nutrition therapy at our Wellness Center.

What is IV/IM Nutrition Therapy?

Did you know that magnesium is needed for over 300 enzymes in our bodies to function properly? Or that we can’t build the collagen needed for stable joints, wrinkle-free skin or thick hair and nails without zinc? Vitamin C, for example, can preferentially kill cancer cells, but only if the concentrations can reach 120-200 mg/Dl. A dose of 2500 mg of oral Vitamin C will result in a blood level of only 2 mg/Dl. Higher concentrations simply cannot be attained by oral intake.

Optimal Vitamin D decreases the incidence of “all cause mortality” by 77 percent. It also markedly improves our athletic performance. These are well-documented medical facts with volumes of clinical studies as back up. Taking Vitamin D is probably the simplest, cheapest way in medicine to save the most lives. Vitamin D is a hormone and has a direct effect on over 1000 genes. And if you have trouble dieting, you guessed it; higher Vitamin D levels are needed.

That’s just a few of the nutrients needed to keep our bodies running in optimal shape. IV vitamin therapy and IM nutrition therapy is the process of administering vitamins, minerals, and nutrients directly into the bloodstream.

In our day, many people believe that eating organic food is enough to obtain the nutrients needed for our bodies to function correctly. Sadly, our soil has become dangerously deficient and is not enough. That’s is why it is so important to take nutritional supplements. Of course, taking over the counter vitamins is okay. Now, think of how much better IM/IV nutrition vitamins work than oral. IM/IV nutrition therapy is the process of administering vitamins, minerals, and nutrients directly into the bloodstream.

Celiac patients get quite ill eating gluten (wheat protein), while the rest of us are in trouble also; we can’t effectively digest and absorb nutrients, for example, Vitamin D, due to this chronic gut inflammation. Even a healthy intestinal tract only allows for 10 to 25 percent absorption of nutrients, minerals, and vitamins and as if this wasn’t bad enough, once absorbed, the liver processes and destroys many of the orally ingested vitamins in a process called “first pass metabolism.”

Intravenous Nutrient Therapy

Intravenous nutrient therapy bypasses the gut and the liver, administering 100 percent of the nutrient directly into the bloodstream. This most efficient method of IM/IV nutrition delivery also avoids common side effects like upset stomach and diarrhea associated with high-dose oral vitamins.

IM/IV nutrition therapy, as we practice it at Doctors Best Wellness Center, is firmly based on medical and scientific evidence. High blood concentrations of vitamins and nutrients have been shown in numerous studies in the scientific literature to be very useful in prevention and treatment of a wide variety of diseases and conditions. There are multiple ways to determine if you need or can benefit from the IV/IM nutrition therapy.

Executive Stress IV

Intravenous administration of the Executive Stress formulation provides your body with enzymes, vitamins, minerals, herbal supplements and other nutrients. Dr. Manocchio has chosen Executive Stress for his patients because it represents the most comprehensive and safe and effective formulation available today.

How IV/IM Nutrition Therapy Performed?

IV/IM nutrition therapy is administered either intravenously (IV – into the vein) or intramuscularly (IM – into the muscle). If you are having IV nutrition therapy, you will sit for a period of time while the nutrients are administered with an IV bag. IM nutrition therapy is administered with injections that only take a few minutes.
