B12 and Folic Acid Injections
Common nutrient deficiencies of B12 and folic acid are often found in vegetarians and vegans who are not supplementing properly. B12 is especially important for the function of our nervous system and energy levels. This therapy is a single intramuscular injection of a solution rich in B12 and folic acid aimed at reestablishing proper functioning levels.
Intravenous Vitamin and Minerals
Intravenous administration is an effective way to administer minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. Oral vitamin-minerals may not work for certain people due to the limitation of intestinal absorption and cellular transport systems. Through the use of intravenous medicine absorption can be increased dramatically and act as a supportive therapy for increasing energy, anti-aging and speeding up recovery from illness. Myer’s cocktails are a specific blend of B complex, B5, B6, B12, vitamin C and magnesium. This IV treatment is administered through a “push” that takes 15-20 minutes and often provides patients with more energy and a kick start to the metabolism. A Myers push also helps to increase stamina and performance in athletic pursuits. Older patients and chronically ill patients with nutritional deficiencies and compromised intestinal absorption often find great benefit from this therapy.These therapies are safe and effective for most people. As a part of Dr Vidmar’s assessment she will always perform basic lab testing to insure proper selection of supplementation based on liver and renal function.
