Intravenous (IV) therapy delivers fluids into your bloodstream through a catheter. At Precision Integrative Oncology, your provider can add a customized blend of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and medications to address your unique needs. IV therapy allows fluids to enter your system immediately, so you feel the effects as quickly as possible.
IV therapy can introduce nutrients into your body quickly, without the side effects that often accompany taking oral supplements.
Standard cancer treatments, like chemotherapy and radiation, can cause uncomfortable side effects. Many people often experience nausea, fatigue, pain, vomiting, and diarrhea that interfere with their quality of life.
Delivering nutrients directly into the bloodstream allows for immediate absorption and provides vital electrolytes and hydration right away. Cancer patients who struggle to eat and drink due to nausea and digestive discomfort can also get the nutrients they need without further discomfort.
Precision Integrative Oncology offers three types of IV therapy for individuals with cancer:
IV therapy with vitamin C supports collagen synthesis and tissue repair pre-and post-surgery, such as a mastectomy or port placement for chemotherapy. High doses of vitamin C can help prevent bruising, bleeding, weakness, and lethargy during chemotherapy.
Your provider tailors IV amino acids to your specific type of cancer and symptoms from traditional treatment. This allows for a more targeted and individualized approach to treating certain types of cancer. IV amino acids may also help people with cancer metabolize protein and increase their nourishment.
Botanicals come from plant parts and can help maintain or improve general health. They may help ease the inflammation in cancer patients and manage cancer-related pain, such as neuropathic pain. Using specific botanical compounds may have a profound effect on relieving these side-effects of cancer.
IV therapy offers many benefits for cancer patients. These treatments:
Each IV therapy drip takes about 30-60 minutes and can make you feel better right away. At your initial visit, your Precision Integrative Oncology provider can determine whether IV therapy is right for you.
