Intravenous in itself means ‘in the vein’. Therefore, medical IVs refers to the administration of fluids directly into the vein. Medical IVs are very popular both in integrated medical facilities and in the alternative medical facilities. The aim of intravenous treatment is to bypass digestion. This means that nutrients will be administered directly to the cells. One of the major benefits of this therapy is that it allows a high dose of nutrients to be administered. This is to achieve greater effectiveness of the treatment. For example, high dose Vitamin C can be administered intravenously to facilitate the treatment of cancer. Another upside of intravenous medications is that they have lesser side effects as opposed to oral administration. With this type of treatment, you do not have to worry about digestive issues. There are various types of Medical IVs. Here are a few;

Ensure that you consult with your physician so that you are not allergic to the components of a medical IV. Also, always ensure that they are administered by a certified practitioner. The Miami holistic health center is one of the best places to get these treatments.
