Intravenous Nutrition Therapy
With the prevalence of processed foods, many people are nutritionally-deficient even when they believe they are meeting the nutritional standards recommended by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). The result of this can manifest as chronic fatigue, burnout, and even a weaker immune system.
Dr. Chan is well-equipped to address this. To help patients build their immune system and ensure they can eﬀortlessly get through the day, we oﬀer an integrative approach that involves so much more than glossing over basic vitamin levels. Dr. Chan’s intravenous nutrition therapy treatments strengthen the body via:
- Vitamin C Supplementation
- Vitamin D Supplementation
- Glutathione Supplementation
Immune Response Boost
Vitamin C boasts extraordinary health benefits that have been recognized for centuries. By supporting the body’s cellular function, it oﬀers protection from common infections and promotes faster recovery.
Increased Collagen Synthesis
Vitamin C plays an active role in collagen synthesis. It helps to rejuvenate the skin and hair, strengthens the walls of the blood vessels, and stimulates blood ﬂow to promote wound healing and tissue regeneration.
Vitamin C oﬀers potent antioxidant properties that lessen inﬂammation. It scavenges free radicals, securing the proper structure of tissue-building macromolecules like proteins, sugars, lipids, and nucleic acids.
Immune Response Boost
Multiple immune cells have receptors for vitamin D on their surface. As a result, vitamin D supplements can strengthen the immune response and increase the number of disease-ﬁghting cells in the body.
Vitamin D helps to ensure proper bone density and structure, preventing the development of osteoporosis and associated fractures like those of the femoral neck, the chest region, the spine, or the wrist.
Increased Calcium Absorption
Vitamin D plays a key role in calcium absorption in the gut. Both calcium and vitamin D encourage healthy bone structure and contribute to other essential processes such as blood clotting and muscle maintenance.
By inactivating damaging free radicals, glutathione prevents tissue and organ damage in the body. It also oﬀers protection from inﬂammatory diseases like diabetes, arthritis, hypertension, and cancer.
Protection from Toxins
Glutathione actively binds toxins present in the body, including those produced by microorganisms. This oﬀers protection from infection and potential organ damage.
