Sometimes it is necessary to bypass the digestive system to give large amounts of nutrients – either because of the high level of nutrients infused (e.g. very large amounts of Vitamin C, far surpassing the amount the gut can absorb within a period of time) or the gut’s inability to absorb the nutrients (e.g. malabsorption syndrome). Vitamin C IV’s (25 grams of Vitamin C plus other nutrients) and Meyer’s Cocktails (5 grams of Vitamin C and other nutrients) help to strengthen the body’s immune system and provide natural energy. These IV’s are beneficial for our Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and Cancer patients. Additionally, these treatments are used to lessen the effect and duration of colds and flus, and also used on a regular basis for chronic viral illnesses, like Hepatitis C, Epstein Barr, etc.
